my last phone was a nokia n73 which is pretty simular to the k800 spec wise, so i guess it would'nt be that bad, but i really have gone off sonys. id only consider one i havent used before. ive used k800s and all them kinds before.

if all else fails ill get another n73 but i wanted to try something else

I know it's out of your price range, but have you looked at the Nokia N95?

dunno wether you have seen the nokia 6300 as well its pretty much in your budget at about 80 as well , dosent compare spec wise to the other two but my friend has it and its pretty sleek and he says the battery life is pretty good on it

hmmm the k800i really good solid phone had it for nearly 2 years its survived many drunked nights, camera quality is ok. its very rugged 1 thing i will say is clean the joy stick bit regulary ive heard of countless accounts where they just refuse to go up or in a certain direction

ive used one and my friend has one. not a bad piece of kit, but i was looking for something a bit more specced.
the n series is deff something im looking into.

^ yea ive considered the n95, but the fact that battery life is so crappy means i dont think ill take the plunge. i was looking at the new nseries. theres n76, n77, n81, and all sorts out
