    Just going through the same process thorugh work

    Have the following choices
    1) N8 Velvet- awesome camera
    2) Iphone 4
    3) motorola Defy
    4) HTC Desire
    5) HTC Touch 2
    6) HTC Wildfire

    Personal experince of the iphone is not good, I find the sound quality of the iphone on the phone side appauling. Voice quality of the person recieving the call is bad. Wind noise or surroundingback ground noise picked up really clearly, smothering the voice. Things may have changed with the 4.

    I personaly want the N8- for the camera. at 12 mpix is superb, with great functionality, but not sure of the phone aspect. Windows mobile software or is this android.... not sure need to read up more

    I understand the HTC are great phones!!!

    Motorolas, no idea....

    Works paying so its not an issue, but I am stuck with it for 3 years, what ever I get.....

    I have the Iphone 4 too, its a reasonable phone but not sure I would choose it again. My main problem with it is if you are on the phone (not handsfree) and you adjust the phone next to your ear, it either puts the call on hold or cuts it off completely ! The touchscreen seems far too sensitive, unless it is just me!?!

    I have the HTC Desire and a mate of mine has the Desire HD. Both cracking phones imho. I just found the HD a bit bulky and it was £6 or so dearer per month (I know that's not alot, but when you're watchin the pennies, it all mounts up) I also know plenty of other people with various HTC phones, wildfire, HD2 etc, and I've never heard a bad thing about them. A few of which have switched from an iphone to. I get 500 mins, 5000 texts, unlimited internet and the phone is free, with 3 for £25 a month. There is a fair use policy of 1GB, which I've never gone over and I use the internet quite a bit on my phone. Thousands of apps to, prob not as many as iphone, though I bet they're not far behind. I've asked plenty of friends what they think, and they were always biased towards the phone they owned. So, read some independant reviews and make your own mind up, thats what I did in the end :D

    My son has the Iphone 4

    He loves it for the games etc but nearly every time I have spoken to him on it the sound quality is much poorer than other phones he's had and sometimes it just cuts off

    Just for the lads who dont know much about smart phones! The Nokia N8 runs on Symbian software! Like all Nokia's have! it has been around for a long time but has been left feeling slow and out of date by the likes of Apple and Google! If you have ever used a Nokia 5800 XpressMusic this phone runs on Symbian Os the n8 is runnig on a Symbian^3 it has the same feel just tweeked up a bit! :wink:

    My last phone was a Samsung i8910 Hd that also run on Symbian this was a top phone on paper 8mp camera! Hd Video OLED Screen should of been a Iphone killer! Was a top piece of hardware! The problem was the Symbian Os let it down Big Time and Samsung's Crap support for custmers with there £700 worth of Phone! :roll:

    I could not wait for the N8 as I have allways had the top Nokia Phones! And was hoping this was going too put Nokia back in the Hot seat! But it was a Very big disappointment for me! And did not live up to the Hype! :roll: This is why I now have a iPhone 4 and is the best phone I have ever had! And I hate Apple for what they are but its a top phone and thats a fact! 8)

    it looks like an iphone 4 but i don't want to pay £££'s up front or be stuck with a 24 month contract, i had a 3gs 2 years ago, on a 24month contract i didnt like it at all, kept it for 2 weeks & sold it, i'm up for renewal now, i have a N8 here but it needs unlocking, funnily enough i loved my nokia 5800 :wink:

    thanks for all the advice
