I believe it is much slimmer; everything else is pretty much the same. I paid about 38K with Bill and Warranty and the damned VAT!

Looking at your requirements K750i suits you the best. K550i camera is not as good as K750i. Nokia cannot compete with Sony in 2MPcamera range and SE is better in music quality....

Totally unbiased opinion and i own a N70

SE K750i is the best VFM option under 10K range......

You can consider the W700i in which u get the walkman also but lose out on Auto focus but the pic quality is still good....

If don't mind spending another 2-3K then go for W810i full loaded comes with 512mb card also

There is one major gross problem with the K750i, the joystick. I have 3 friends who own the K750i and all 3 of their joysticks have stopped working. One of them got it replaced after a year and it has gone again. The joystick costs Rs.100 but service charge is Rs.250.

It gathers up dust or something like it wears out and then nothing happens when you press any direction. Very frustrating.

Please share your views...

for a good camera in a mobile phone, you need to atleast go for 3.2mp.

For music Sonyericsson walkman phones and Motorola ROKR phones are the best(I did read that you are not looking at motorola). The ROKR E6 is infact selling for around 13-14 grands now. I have used the older version and hence I can recommend it.

Check out the SE series but I would suggest you to look for a joystick less phone.

i have the k550i ... bought it over the k750i mainly coz its a lot slimmer and looks really sexy (atleast to me) ... The keypad takes some getting used to , but it's not a problem ... i send between 800-1200 texts a month on avg ... still can't type as fast as before , but fast enough ...

Pictures often come out slightly more grainy than the 750i(i believe since its slim , the parts are closely packed and the CMOS sensor picks up slightly more noise) ... but then again it's good enough ... still better off than the nokias i feel ... At the end of the day , cam's just for fun ... So i wasn't hell bent on the best ...

Music: Reason i didn't buy the w810i -- have a 20GB mp3 player already and have used the w810i for a bit before(bro has it) ... so it would be like buying a new-old phone ... But the phone rocks.

Speaker and earphone quality of k550i has been kept noticibly lower than w series (but still good) ... a set of w series earphones and you'll be good to go ... but then you rather buy the 810i if interested in music on the ph.

GUI structure is the same as w810i and others ... but with bigger text and nice themes , it is really really pleasing to the eye ....

Memory is 70MB internal + 64MB(in box)

Cheers!!
