    Touch Screen Phone

    Can anyone recomend me a good touch screen phone. As my contract is due to be renewed soon. I am looking for something with good web browsing facilities, music player and a decent camera.

    If people dont rate touch screen phones please can you explain why and recomend a good "normal" phone.

    Thanks

    Take a journey to the 'dark side' and buy an iphone. Best mobile I've ever owned by far! Meets all your criteria apart from the fact the camera on it is a bit rubbish! There's supposed to be a new model out in another month or two and I reckon there's probably a good chance this will have an improved camera.

    Just moved from a HTC touch to a iPhone 3G

    The UI is second to none, and the web browsers awesome. plus the sound quality using headphones is amazing (much better than my previous iPod)

    Nokia 5800 great music and movie playing, tv out, 3.5mm headphone socket.

    Web browsing is quick and easy, navigation on the touch screen is good, lots of symbian apps for it.

    Only gripe is the micro usb port and the fact it doesn't charge from this.

    Well I've just read that review and have to say I have found no problems with navigating it or using any of the keyboard options available for it.

    Not broken or bent the stylus yet and while it's a bit small it works and they give you a spare.

    I have the Samsung i900 Omnia, good phone, nothing brilliant about it. Needs resetting alot and needs a good ROM flashing to it to get the most out of it.

    Yeah, it's not a bad phone, but I'm just sure there are better out there. It's got some silly things about it.

    Im going to move back to a HTC Touch phone, cannot decide between the Touch pro or HD, will probably go for one with a keyboard though as i'm quite quick at typing on those little keyboards.

    HTC Touch HD - iPhone is wayyyyy over-rated.

    I never want one, I like to be able to text using buttons
    As nice as the iphone etc is, they're a nightmare to type on
