The most expensive one. Always wins.

The "best" carrier varies geographically when you're NOT considering a satellite phone. Motorola high end phones are the best at being phones: best audio fidelity and best signal reception. If you want a camera buy one. If you want a portable game console buy one. If you want an mp3 player buy one. If you want the best quality PHONE buy a high end motorola.

Nokia rules OK.

I've been using Nokia for nearly 10 years, they are good quality and I have never had to have one repaired. Very reliable.

I also have a Panasonic now but it isn't as good as my Nokia.

All their models are great.

i also say Nokia rulz, nvr bought any other exept Nokia

Sony Ericsson w800i -- > why carry a camera and a walkman, when you have this Very Happy

plus can u guys tell me ,would it be better if i bought it in india ? is there the price low ?

I think Motorola phones are the best, especially the new MOTORAZR. I bought one two years ago and it never stopped working (I always keep it powered on, 24/24 hours).

My parents own the Nokia 3230, it's a rather good phone, 1.3megapixel camera, it's just like a mini-computer/mini-pda to me.

Well, if you are looking for more highend ones, the N Series are good Smile.

I'm aiming for that N91 myself Laughing.

I'm using Motorola, no complaints here.

i too am using a motorola...pretty good phone and bluetooth is very handy

I've used a lot of Nokia Phones. I'm currently Using an N-gage QD. It's the best phone to play games on a phone. Very Happy

But for some reason, a lot of people think QD sux. I wonder why...?
djcaution
Mobile phones scare me these days. I'm 21, I havent had a cell phone in 2 yrs and I feel old and outdated! They got retardedly good camera's, mp3 players, gigs upon gigs of storage, its disgusting! I want one...
vijay
My vote will definitely go in favour of Nokia Communicator and BlackBerry

I wish I could buy a new phone... I have a 4 year old Kyocera, lmao...
srijit
get the phone from India, much cheaper :p
and almost all phone components are assembled in china, regardless of what the sticker says. heck even the stickers are made in china :p

i again recommend the sony w800i, has a 512Mb card. good for music Very Happy
XxGunner
Howbout getting that Ericson (dont know what brand) phone which is the newest one i think. The one with mp3, camera, and it can turn in like a 360 i think. Its a great phone only if i could tell you the brand so you guys could search it up. But anyways some of you probably know it already so i guess someone else can post the brand...
greekcovers
A Sony Ericsson W800 is the best choice ! Very Happy

What about Samsung? No one mentioned it yet. Last year I bought a Samsung SGH-E330 and I'm very happy with it, I had a simple Nokia cellphone before. I don't know which functions you want though..

thats the SE550i i think. its based on the SE swing phone. its good, but the problems are
  • pre-loaded with an inbuilt memory of 256 MB and one cannot install a card to enhance its memory.
  • any movable part increases risk of damage

Here is a link

hey seems that there is a SE w810i, it seems that it can hold upto 2Gb card Smile
w800i can get upto 1Gb Razz

I have an LG phone like most people here in Georgia. Verizon is the most popular carrier here, and most people like the features the LG phones have. Mine is an LG VX520, which is pretty cheap (US$100 i think) and it works pretty well. It has pretty good sound, the camera is ok, but I rarely use it.

I think the phone you get depends on which service you pick up with. Some services dont support some phones, so make sure you get a service that supports the phone you get.

I am not sure which is trhe BEST phone. But, the best phone I have ever owed was the easily programmable N-Gage QD from nokia.

It was a blast to write j2me apps on it.

But for some reason, a lot of people think QD sux. I wonder why...?


I totally agree that all people think that the QD sucks, its totally unfair. At another board they were comparing the QD with the PSP!
But in reality to play games te N-Gage is the best and its not that costly either. Even if I move on to another phone sometime later I'll always keep my N-Gage.

Ive found nokias to be around the most reliable of phones. Ive had samsung and sony ericsson since my nokia (5210), and the nokia has lasted the longest with only a minor fault with the wap browser.
The sony ericsson t610 developed a sim card reader fault, and kept crashing while i was on calls and the first samsung's screen (a800) developed a fault, my second samsung decided to randomly stop working one day for no reason. Had to have it replaced just 5 months after i got it brand new. (samsung z500)

i think the razr is shit Razz what modern phone has NO memory card option and only abt 10Mb or less of memory Razz
Devil
ok i bought the 6260 nokia , it is damn good Laughing

http://www.europe.nokia.com/nokia/0,8764,58691,00.html#idc

Have any of u people tried it yet
bliushift
razr sells fashion not features. although it is very functional, it may not have all the crazy technology in it. besides, to get something that thin, you would need to take out a lot of features.

in my personal opinion, i feel that the motorola slvr will be the next hot-ticket item. again, this is based on fashion and not necessarily feature-jamming. super slim and definitely visually attractive, this phone one ups the samsung razr copy and definitely has a lot more features.

you can check it out at http://gsmarena.com/motorola_slvr_l7-1053.php

I like motorola... razors are cool.
I use a samsung. Motorolas get better reception in my school building though so that's another reason I like them.
Nokia is starting to loose popularity w/ me because they aren't very stylish and nokia hardly has any flip phones < they're making a comeback with some of their newer models though.

just got me a V3i memory card now a feature, getting used to the differnt layout to my old Nokia, nice and easy to hook up to the laptop, can't really fault it so far.

got myself an XDA2i before the V3i, nice bit of kit but impossible to text on the move which is a right pain if you're a texter but as it is more a buisness phone I guess it's not a problem for a buisness man sitting at a desk.

My first cellphone was an Alcatel. Robust stuff, it came in the washing machine and enjoyed the full ride, but it worked for about six month. Then, he was really broken, so I had to buy a new cellphone. I bought an Sony Ericsson, sometimes called "the Apple of the cellphone-industry." They not only look nice, they're also very reliable and have lots of functions.
amusic
I like Sony Ericsson w800i with digital camera and walkman function. Would like to get one soon...
evestor
I love my Treo 650. I never have dropped calls. The apps available are out of site and the camera is above average. Battery life is nice also.

cuz here i can get a orginal nokia made in finland ,


Price in India is definitely not low.It will be best if you get it from east asia places like taiwan, hk, etc.

Sony Ericsson W810i looks good.However i dont like W800i.It looks sort of ugly.
K750i is also good.

Nokia rules OK.

I've been using Nokia for nearly 10 years, they are good quality and I have never had to have one repaired. Very reliable.

I also have a Panasonic now but it isn't as good as my Nokia.

All their models are great.

yeah! moto is good too!

I switched from a Nokia 6310 to a Sony Erikson k750i, and i was kinda disappointed with it. The camera features were way better, which was kinda cute with having a little kid around to photograph, but as a phone I didn't think that much of it. I guess I was expecting great things, but the interface was annoying, and I kept deleting the first name in the addressbook by accident. Something to do with the way it was arranged.
Anyway, then some sweaty, dumb-accented miscreant from Norfolk chose to steal it, so I've rolled back to my old (and I mean really old) flip phone. It's a Samsung s300 or something. You can text and talk and that's yer lot. When august comes again, I'll take my free upgrade, and get me a new phone. Don't know what'll be available on my 25 quid a month contract, but i know one thing - I'll haggle for something better!!! Smile

I have a Nokia phone (6620), and it works great on every feature advertised. It's those other features added with third party programs (its a Symbian "smartphone") that don't work very well. In my experience, Nokia makes the most durable low end phones, but I can't say about the midrange models.

Thanks for enlightening me blasty.

But the reason one starts a topic may be because he wants to choose which one is best or popular.

So if the topic starter wanted opinions on good mobile phones, he could have checked that topic.

You dont get any fun out of just knowing what you or he has?

It can be for a purpose.

Here if he knows what fones others have he can perhaps know about a phone's popularity or something

i completely disagree and think that the ngage iz one sorry phone. the mobility iz great but the services offered are totally flawed. the thing is bulky with nothing to make up for its bulyness. now you look at a bulky phone like the sidekick or hiptop line, there iz a phone that makes up for the bulkyness of a phone. i have to admit the thing iz freakin a brick when it comes to style and design but the functionalities of the phone are incredible. real internet surfing actual QWERT keyboard, real instant messaging, e-mail, etc. on top of that the phone has speaker mode. a phone that any lady could carry in her purse.

people are making smaller and smaller phones, which may fit some personality types like for women or the letent homosexual male (no offense) but when you look at a guy with a tinly little phone he just looks less of a guy and kinda more of a fruit. i admit i had a small phone for a while too and it waz even White~!!! but i came to realize smaller phones isnt always better. anywayz, for the portabilities and functions i choose the sidekick and cant wait for the 3rd one.

I have a nokia 3586.
I bought a siemens A60 yesterday, and it should arrive tomorow.

I used to have a siemens C60 (a slightly more expensive version of the A60 with a few more features, but otherwise the same) and it was a great phone, that I really regret selling.

Iv also had a sony ericsson T230 which was f**kn horrible, I hated it, and wished it would die (and last month it did - with a little help from a hammer)

I also had an ericsson T65, which was absolutely bullitproof.I dropped it out a 2nd story window onto concrete and washed it many times (not on purpose), but it kept on going.
Scotty Too Hotty
well now this is somethign that i can really talk about. I work for a Cellular provider....

I must say that there are some nice phones currently out that. THe Motorolla V3 RAZR is a great seller but i personnally dont like it. THere are lots of Problems with the OS. The Motorolla L7 SLVR is also the same way except it comes with an i-tunes liscence.

I persoannly use a Palm Treo 650. Its a great phone. I got it like 2 months ago. I use it for work and for play lol.

Ive heard good reviews about most LG phones nokia's have some issues, and their phones are usually older technology. Most motorolla products are cutting edge, but they arent tested technology if you will so there are lots of flaws in it. Motorolla always has cutting edge software and features.

I really like the SOny Ericson W600i. Very nice phone but kinda bulky. Its quite heavy as well.

i would say in this business, the most complaints derive from people who get phones with too much. Basically, a lot of people with Palm treos get them because they are cool. They dont need the functionality of it and are typically basic users. this generates massive complaints. I work for Rogers Wireless in Canada and well, this i find is the biggest problem.

Other basic problems are the interfaces are to hard to use, or the buttons are too tiny. Most complaints are against motorolla. Sony Ericson gets a few, just like any other phone and nokia gets a lot of complaints

Hi!

Some years ago I had a Nokia 6150 and a 8310.
Today I have a Nokia 6010i. It’s easy to use; it has lots of features, and above all: it’s almost indestructible.
It has a nice autonomy although its two years of non-stop use.
The next one I will buy it will be a Nokia for sure (Perhaps Nokia 6280).

i think nokia is one of the best mobile stuff in the world. they can found what the people want and stuff it on the mobile things. the quality is not quite bad either. the used nokia mobile phone is the best seller in my country. the price of the used still high in price. you can also change the cover of the skin as you like. that's why nokia is the best one in earth. but the mobile technologies are more higher and better the nokia. if nokia compete with the japanese mobile stuff, i bet nokia would 99% loose. everyone have it own favourite mobile stuff Smile

I think nokias are the most common phone, because werent they the first company to bring out phones without aerials?? or something like that anyway.

Buttons were tiny and hard, and if you used "chat" too long it would slow right down and you had to pull the battery out to turn it off.

You need to add Siemens to the list, every siemens I'v owned has got great reception and worked bloody well.

Ever since I got a Sony Ericsson P900 I left the boring and very very simple nokias, since then I have never looked back !!
I now own a sony ericsson w800 and still my original p900 (The only way I will get rid of my p900 is too replace it with a newer version).
Anyway my thinking is that Sony Ericsson have made leaps and bounds in the mobile world. And nokia seem to be stuck at the same menu and same looks and feels as they always have Sad

My first phone was Nokia but now I am using Sony Ericsson. Like Sony Ericsson phones designs and feature Cool

[seuntech]Which phones are most the commonly used phones?


if the poll was started as "Which phone/s you use? then it would have been easy to understand to more voters..
i use Moto C380. cheap but after tweaking with the phone i got it play mp3, 3gp videos, even i incresed its internal space 1.2MB to 2.5mb just by deleting some unwanted files. its better than Nokia or any other brand in its class. now upgrading it to Nokia 6600 for its Symbian OS. here i dont have a choce because of the price factor. Nokia is like Internet Explorer..

I had a Samsung phone once.

ONCE...

Nokia FTW. They're easy to use. I have a 6230i, it can do everything I want it to do. The only problem is that there's no good games available for mobile phones which I don't get bored of after 5 minutes.

I have a samsung (don't know what kind of model haha) because my dad bought my it for my birthday 2 years ago. I don't use it that often though, just to stay in touch with my girlfriend when I'm away.

I have a Nokia 7270. It's a flip phone [which looks cool], and it's got everything I need: a camera, FM radio, GPRS, infrared, video recorder with the basic stuff we all need like voice calls, SMS, MMS.

Nokia is common in Europe and many parts of Asia, but in the US... it's not as popular as the MotoRAZRs or PEBLs [if they have it in the US already!]. And GSM is still catching up in the US, unlike in many parts of the world where it's been a standard.

I have an LG, it's really cool. But it's an old LG, I have it for years. The camera is

I see loads of Nokias and Samsungs.

I have an Alcatel which should probably be in a museum by now. My grandma gave it to me in 2000 when she got a new one and I hardly use it, so I haven't bothered replacing it.
hlavco
Wait.... is this poll to find out what phone we use? Or is it what phone we think is used the most? I dunno, but I use an LG, and I've seen a lot of those around lately, so I'm just gonna vote or it.

I don't know what the phone is called, I'm not gonna memorize the number that y phone is, like some people do. "Hey have you seen the new 1200?! No way, man, the 1350's MUCH cooler!" I just know I have an LG, because that's what it says on the front. Confused

From my experience, Nokia is the best. When you have a Nokia phone, you can always assure that it won't let you down. The quality wise is second to none. But sometimes I don't like them, because they are so long lasting I can't really find an excuse to change it Smile
I have been using the same phone for more than 3 years now. During this time, it's been dropped numerous time that I can't even remember how many. But it's still working like a charm. Because of that I feel difficult to change phone. Sad

i have said this before and i will say it again lol, In the Cellphone industry, the two most common models for the regular users are:

Nokia
Motorolla

BOth offer good phones, at decent prices.

I work in the Cellphone industry hence why i can consider myself an expert.

Motorola is top of the line, when something new is being offered or invented motorolla is at the cutting edge, offering it first, or next to first. For example the coolest thing about the MOTORAZR is that the antenna (or intenna if you will) is not located in the typicalspot of most phones. In Clamshell (FlipPhones) the most common place to have an intenna is behind the screen in the portion that goes to your ear. With the RAZR it is opposite, and the Antenna is actually pointed downwards to the mouthpiece.

Motorlla's most popular phones right now are the V3 RAZR, V3i RAZR, L7 SLVR, the PEBL, and the Motorolla Q. The V3 is a 4th quarter model from last year where the SLVR is a Late Fourth Quarter, early first quarter phone. The V3i is a late 1st Quarter, and the PEBL is the SAME. The Q on the other hand is the newest being a second quarter phone. The Q has a full QWERTY keyboard on it, but in the GSM model is it only a Dual Band Phone with the 850 and 1900 MHz Bands. (only good for north america)

The older phones that are still quite Popular are the V551, and also even the V220. In my opinion really bad phones.

On the Nokia Side of it all, the most common right now are the 6101, 6103, 3220, and also the 6680. All great phones, but still cheap. Nokia tends to use the same technology as motorolla but only once it has been tried and tested. This makes their phones better inb the fact that there is not apt to be a recall on these phones as all the bugs were worked out by other companies. Dont get me wrong they they still are pioneering some technologies on their new phones.

In regards tot he business man, the Blackberry is definatly the most common choice. Most common model right now is likely the 7290. Bulky wide phone but the simplicity of it makes it easy to use. Its a quadband phone on GSM networks making it the busness mans dream as it can be used in all countries (almost) but not in Japan. The second most common is the 8700, nice phone better display and less bulky, making it better. Finnally though my chouce of the blackberries i have used is the 7130. This is basically a bar phone. Is very smart and makes life on the road easier.

After the RIM Blackberry comes the Palm TREO. The palm treo 650 is running in first place in their brandings followed by the 600, and now with the launch of the 700, im curious to see how that will change. The thing about the 700, the only difference from the 650 is a slightly different looking handset, and also that it is using Windows Mobile rather than the Palm os. (I prefer the palm OS with the Touch Screen)

I have tried most of these phones, and work with them on a daily basis. This is where my ananlysis comes from.

THanks

I'm using a Sony Ericsson K750i, and i love it, but i like K800i better.
ItsWesley
I've got an old motorola v525 and I don't really like it, the interface is pretty bad and the phone doesn't have any looks.
I think nokia and sony ericsson phones are better but some are quite costly.
Mr. McCoy
Currently I have a Nokia phone...But its almost broke so i´ll buy a SonyEricsson w810i...That´s NICE!!

I don't know why you don't get on with the Sony Ericsson... I've found the SEs to be very good - built like tanks (apart from the middle joysticks), very intuitive menus, etc.

Also, you can use Float's Mobile Agent, which is a pretty useful mobile phone tool, almost makes it worthwhile to buy a SE!

Only bad thing about them is the fact that the joysticks eventually go.

i like Samsung mobiles

Well I have an LG phone. It looks nice and I still like playing around with it. I'm just annoyed that it has slowed down so soon after buying it. I just got it in January and I noticed the lag during the summer. My boyfriend has a Samsung and it looks pretty nice. I don't think his has had any issues right now and it seems to run pretty fast. Its a little bigger than mine so I'm not as impressed by that.

Another phone I'd consider if the iPhone simply because I like the touch screen. I still have this old clunker of an iPod touch (1st gen) and its still running, its smooth, hasn't slowed down. AND it survived a screen replacement (performed by myself). I think the apps a kind of different for those with iPhones and iPod touches.

Somewhere on my list if the Blackberry. Not sure. I like the Curve and the Bold looks about the same. I did like the one where it was a touch screen and you could push that up and have a keyboard. I like those kind of keyboard inputs. Touchscreens are weird when it comes to typing and you can't feel where the buttons are. With your hands on a computer keyboard you can feel where the keys are and you hands can automatically rest on it over the correct keys. If you took that away and just had your hands on a flat surface, you couldn't tell where the keys were without looking.

So that's what I have to say. Its probably way different than what other people are offering, but it's some things that I think about when I look at phones.

I think for the past few the best mobile phone there is Nokia, but now I thnik it's Samsung. Very Happy

I think Nokia is the better one, currently I'm using Nokia 6630 since last 4 years which was old model since I purchased I'm not facing any problem in this Nokia set but now I'm thinking to have smart phone. In smart phone series I heard that Apple iPhone is best but that's too expensive so I'm thinking to have Samsung Smart Phone soon.

but still I think Nokia is the better one...!
