    Question Mobile upgrade time... which phone to get?

    Well its that time of year again and I'm trying to decide which phone to get...?

    I'm currently using a N95 and had an N80 before that. Was happy with both of those so was looking forward to the N96 coming out...However although looks isnt too important its not the best looking phone and from what Ive read is not a massive improvement over the N95.

    N96



    Its still a contender though and the other two I'm looking at are

    Samsung i8510


    and Sony Ericsson c905



    So what do ya reckon....

    The N96 is virtually the same as the N95 so wouldnt be much of an 'upgrade' imo.

    ^^^Yeah thats what i figured. Forgot to say criteria it needs to meet in order of importance...

    Fast internet access
    Reliable
    Good memory
    Reasonably decent camera
    Good music player and speakers
    Reasonably good battery life


    Size, weight, cost are not issues.

    what about the new blackberry thats been on th tv adverts??? havnt heard much about it but im sure it is pretty good,
    the n96 isnt all its cracked up to be tbh and as said before isnt much of an upgrade to the already ace n95 8gb

    Yeah wifi is a must. Needs to be HDSPA enabled as well.

    Anyone own or played around with an iphone. They're supposed to be quite good as well.

    Out of the 3 i'd go for the N96.

    I'm trying to get a good deal on the SE Experia X1, but its a bit expensive at the moment still. Voda will upgrade me to it for free next month, but don't want one with Vodafone branding lol.
    Paul have you used one of these, and if so how much branding does it have?

    Played with one for about 30 seconds yesterday and it seemed pretty cool.

    It has WM 6 OS so cant see there being much branding tbh. If you can explain what exactly you want me to check Dave and i will grab one and check it for you mate.

    The iphone is an awesome phone, i have had mine for about 3/4 weeks now and i am really impressed with it. However the camera is a major let down, no zoom, no flash and cant do video recording.

    Thats cool, it's just I know on some phones with Vodafone (or any other networks) branding it makes it hard to do firmware updates, they change logos within the menu's etc.
    But as you say, being a WM phone it probably limits the amount they can change.
