Hi Guys, I'm using O2 Stealth for past 2years with WM5 to WM6.5. Now, looking for a chnage. Should I consider the one with Android OS or stick with WM? Can anyone share the Android experiance?

Ask him to take a look at the Nokia 5130.

In the same boat as you, Got a samsung midrange ULTRA multimedia phone and regret buying it. Wish I could just get rid of it at a decent price.

Nothing works, really lousy earphones and no application runs fine. Samsung phones are definitely lot worse than Sony phones. I still love my K750i and would have got it again if it had EDGE support.

I had written a review of this phone on my naveenroy.com blog and some of the worst problems was sudden drop of network, lousy earphones and not being able to use two applications at once. At first, even Google Maps would not work properly. As in, it was not showing the current location. Thankfully, this has been resolved. But I hate the earphones and planning to get that adapter so that I can use other manufacturers earphones.

Primary Mobile : iPhone 3G
Secondary Mobile : Motorola V3XX

I just love my iPhone (especially the GPS and mobile internet browsing).
Apart from the price there is absolutely nothing to frown at...

Use a Satio today. 12MP cam and other usual stuff. Browsed net for sometime; it was very fast in rendering pages.

It was bought from Dubai for 1022AED and sold to a friend of mine for 15k ( He got it in some fair at DXB and hence the price)

actually if they are going to photograph machines, use something which has a usable macro mode. sony ericsson w810i is a strong contender (personal exp), but almost double the budget. check some other phones with a better macro mode.

Waiting for the BB Bold2 to hit the market to replace my Curve 8900.

Btw, does anyone know when the SE X10 is scheduled for release? I'm absolutely bored with WinMo and S60v5 and need something a bit more exciting.

Hi ,

I am looking for new mobile in the range of 15-20k. I am confused about touch phone/ key pad phone as many times I find myself using speed dial function w/o looking at the phone while driving. Once the phone connects then I switch to speaker phone.

Don't know how to do this when using touch phone ( as there many not to be possibility to sense the key )

Help me guys !

most windows mobile phones allow you to map the available hard keys to a function - i have mapped to speakerphone earlier and some touchphones already have a hardkey for speakerphone. Ofcourse now I use the htc diamond with a car kit, so i dont really need to touch the phone at all
Edit - using voice commands on windows mobile is also pretty decent now - i use that to launch google maps or play audio/video, without having to touch the phone. Plus if you have voice enabled phone, it reads out emails/sms/incoming call number or contact name!

Fellow bhpians, any suggestions for a touch screen phone under 15k( for female user) Nokia, Sony, Samsung preferred.
Priorities:
1. Ease of use
2. Battery life
3. Looks,of course
4. Build quality
Samsung f480 is one candidate on the list. 5800XM didnt really impress me. Anything else?
