Was going to wait for the K850 to come out & upgrade to that

But, it's going to be a touch screen Which is annoying as fuck (anyone who's had a E900 or LG Chocolate will tell you how bad they are!)

Plus it's a bit bigger than I'd imagined





And the D-pad is a bit weird too, doesn't have a middle button



I know some people swear by N95's, but also a lot of people swear at them. Are they really as bad as some people make out? Battery wise etc


N95 came put on top in the review - http://www.gsmarena.com/sony_ericsson_k850_vs_nokia_n95-review-162.php

I have an N95 and I have to say I really hate it, the gps application is shit, the battery lasts about a day the symbian software is very slow,

On the plus side they are quite durable i droped mine from halfway up the grandstand at pvs on to the tarmac and it survived.

I was waiting for the k850i aswell but it wont be out for another while to existing customers, they release them to new customers first.

I upgraded to the samsung g600, got it today, looks really good, 5mp camera, 1gb memory etc

On the G600 you have a choice of 4 message alerts. You can't set your own

Hmm, might wait (even longer) and have a play with the k850i in a shop before I go ahead and order it online. Not too keen on touchscreens, I hate getting fingerprints all over them!
Don't like the Nokia at all though and not tried the Samsung yet either.

Ive got a N95 and i love it!
Yeh the battery life isnt the best, and lasts me 2 days, and thats using the camera etc

Camera is good, everything is good on it to be honest!

If youre getting it on contract. Just get the 1 you like the least. Then just phone them up and tell them youre not happy, and you want to change to the other, and they will do it for you
