    What Phone

    I am due for an upgrade any day soon, i have been looking at the HTC Hero and the Nokia N97

    from what i have read the features of the Hero seem the best.

    But the camera sucks. (messed with a friends the other day and my n95 8gb took far supurior photos so i dont want to downgrade really.

    i want an iphone 3gs but i would have to wait til jan and change from orange to o2

    what phones have you guys got and what would you suggest?

    (ps i have had a long line of htc (under the xda and spv names) through the years all windows powered.

    would like to try something different but i need the camera. if you saw my facebook profile you would see why.

    LG Arena is a nice phone if you want a touch screen with a powerful cam. Software is linux based and it also can run open office portable!

    If you have a decent data/internet package on your contract then chose the most expensive phone you are offered, put it on eBay and then buy a second hand iPhone with the cash to use unlocked on Orange?

    Got my G1, and it rocks.

    Anything with Android on it would be a go for me.

    G1 if you want a QWERTY keyboard

    or

    G2 if you don't mind missing it but gaining some extra features... such as contacts picturse syncing with your contacts facebook profile picture.

    p.s i'm loving my g1 because of the QWERTY, I would hate having a touch screen all the time.

    I'd always go with a Nokia, I've been using the E71 since December, and love it... I looked at the N97 as a replacement, but not keen on touch screens, so going to go with the E72 when it's released... Awesome phone, great with email, syncs with Exchange etc. and the E72 will have a 5Meg cam, as opposed to the E71 which only has 3...

    Same here, though my current favourite is the N85. I've got no need for a smartphone, but the FM transmitter, decent camera and the N-Gage games keep me happy.
