I have the Nokia N95 atm but hate it soooo much so would like to buy another one. The only requirements I have are that I can listen to MP3, preferably radio too, 5megapixel camera and generally look smart smile
Can anyone recommend one? I'm looking at the LG Viewty- any thoughts on this one?

Sony Ericcson. It is the way forward. Their phones are basically cameras with phones attached. I love mine. I have the C905 which is actually an 8.1 mega pixel camera but they have a lower one that is 5 - will depend on your contract what you can get free.

I don't do the MP3 thing but I'm fairly certain the Sony's are good for that too - they're Sony after all.

You will never look back. DH was a committed Nokia person until I got my claws into him and he has never regretted changing over!

Just one thing - check the buttons. The same phone can have slightly different buttons. mine is great but DH's has much harder buttons that I find annoying.

just out of interest, why don't you like the n95? i have one, but am hankering after an iphone.

Ooh, thanks for that. I hated the phone I got with my contract (see a trend?!) so sold it and bought the N95 so I'm not limited to what I can get on contract. I reckon I can spend about £100 on phone so that's my only limiting factor!

I'll check out the Sont Erricson then.

I hate the N95 for so many reasons- it doesn't cancel what I'm doing when I close the screen, doesn't store enough text message, keeps losing contacts, screen freezes and the battery life is just abysmal.

gosh - sounds like a faulty phone to me.

I've just bought an LG Viewty and I really like it. Used as a camera for the first time yesterday and was impressed at the quality.

I have a sony ericsson with a 3.2 camera, which takes pretty good pictures, so a 5 should be brilliant!

It does also have MP3, radio etc but there are basically 2 ranges of sony ericssons - the Walkman kind (usually beginning with a W) & the camera kind (beginning with a C or a K)

C902 is the 5 megapixel camera.

W980 is the Walkman kind but still has a 3.2 camera

They are all dead easy to use & they all have the same charger connection which is very useful (having previously had a Samsung where they seem to have a different connector for almost every model hmm)

Internet use is easy too.

N95 reviews - lots of them seem to crash?

Thanks, am checking out the Sonys. I have heard so many people with the same complaints about the N95 as me- think the N96 sorted out a lot of these issues.
I can recycle it for £101 so it's not all bad!
