    Hi
    I'm still trying to decide what I should get as my new phone (to replace my
    Nokia 7650), I played with a few in a shop today...

    I was originally planning on getting a P800, but I'm not sure if it's really
    worth the money... As a phone, it seems a bit cumbersome and writing text
    messages seems to be a bit of a chore (does it get faster once you're used
    to scribbling?) I might get annoyed not having the option of predictive text
    input... The P800 is pretty great, but I don't want to blow loads of money
    on it as next year I'll probably end up getting something 3G compatible like
    the Z1010... Can anyone change my mind back towardss the P800

    Then I played with a T610 and it seemed fine, just slow to respond. I was
    getting annoyed writing a text message and waiting for it to catch up with
    me, is there a firmware release available (or out soon) that brings it up to
    speed, I want something as responsive as my 7650 was...

    The Nokia 3300 I considered for a bit, but it looks like a Game Boy Advance
    and I don't think i'd get on with it that well with its strange layout...

    Then I considered the 3G Motorolla one, the A810 I think... I couldn't try
    it, none in stock, any experience of these? I've heard the battery life is
    poor...

    As you can see I'm very confused, any advice appreciated...

    Re: T610 - Slow? P800 - Worth it? (HELP ME!)

    I was in the same boat as you. I had/have a 7650.

    I went and got a '3' phone, the Motorola A830 is the one you're talking
    about I think. DO NOT GET THIS PHONE! I cannot stress this enough. If you
    need to rely on your phone, don't get this one. It is ****e. It is very user
    unfriendly, especially coming from a 7650 environment. Mine lasts about 14
    hours with little use. They restart randomly. the network is ****, so you
    get call drop outs. SOme calls dont even get through to you and you won't
    know it until the person trying to call you, sees you and tells you.I only
    use it for calls to my GF who has one as well, so we get free calls.

    I just bought the T610 to replace my 7650, cos I gotta carry around my '3'
    phone as well. It is a pleasure to use. The lag factor has not bothered me
    the more I use it. I was a bit worried about sms'ing, but if you keep your
    head down and type like you would on any T9 predictive text phone, it all
    catches up anyway.

    Believe me, I didn't realise how much I would miss T9 until I tried to sms
    with my Motorola. What a pig!

    As for the P800....I dunno....I never liked it. Yes it may be functionally
    better than the 7650, but it looks like a toy! I would be more inclined
    towards the replacement for the 7650 (cant remember the model).

    The z1010 looks awesome, and that is the phone I will probably get next to
    replace my current '3' phone. Hopefully, the network will have sorted itself
    out by then.

    In the meantime, I would definately take the T610. It really is a pleasure
    to use. So nice to have a small phone again. Syncs so easily to PC. I
    remember having huge problems getting my 7650 to work with Bluetooth.

    The Nokia 7650 is a hot phone. Why dump it?

    No.

    The SE phones *classically* are slow responders compared to Nokias. Your
    complaint is extremely common.

    >The Nokia 3300 I considered for a bit, but it looks like a Game Boy Advance
    >and I don't think i'd get on with it that well with its strange layout...


    It's a garbage phone.

    The hottest phone on the market right now is the Samsung SPH-i500, but it's
    CDMA/AMPS only.

    If you can wait for the Nokia 6600, that looks to be one hot phone.

    Thanks! That's one crossed off the list... On first imspection it seems
    ideal, but I can't find anyone saying nice things about it

    I believe the 3650 is designed as the 7650 replacement, but it's got the
    most ridiculous key layout... The 7250 is pretty similar too, but I just
    don't like the look of it much... The forthcoming 6600 might be pretty well
    suited though...

    Thanks for your input, I'll try the T610 again and see if i can get the hang
    of it...

    Yeah, the 3650 is ruined by the stupid design. 6600 is the one I was
    refering to. However, it is still quite big, and looks a bit odd (a bit
    fat). But that is personal taste.

    I don't really see the benefit of the 6600 over the 7650. The main
    advangtage is the memory card. However, I never actually ran out of memory
    on my 7650. It is cool to be able to carry around mp3s and video clips (as I
    do with my A830), but the novelty wears off very quickly.

    My feeling is, that my t610 does pretty much everything the 6600 does so
    some extent.

    I guess it depends on what you need from your phone. I am definately not
    someone who buys a phone based on what I really need it for. I always over
    compensate and get something with the bells and whistles.

    I've just discovered that the T610 has just 2MB of memory, half that of the
    7650... I think I'm going to stick with my 7650 a little longer and see what
    I can get in a few months... Thanks for all your help though!

    In fact, it is less than 2M as the memory is a shared memory.

    Just out of curiosity, what do you keep on your phone?
    Cos I too, was worried about the 2mb limit but, I could never get my 7650 to
    free up more than about 3.3mb. Most of the time it would sit on about 1mb
    (at least) free. That means I only ever would use 1.3mb.

    On my 7650, I usually have about 30 photos stored (from a night out) then
    Puzzle Bobble (my favourite mobile game) and Video Recorder... Plus some
    saved SMS/MMS and other bits'n'bobs...

    haha.....I have puzzle bobble too!! This game rocks! We were all addicted to
    it in the arcade. My missus loves it.
    That's one bad thing about the t610, no puzzlebobble. doesn't work.
    I also have the video recorder installed, actually had two of them for a
    while, couldn't decide which was better. Video recorder made me love that
    phone even more when it first came out.

    Re: T610 - Slow? P800 - Worth it? (HELP ME!)

    The P800 is a really great phone and worth the price. Of course you can wait
    for a new model but they will always come around. When that's said, I tested
    the new SonyEricsson that will replace the P800 and it has a much better
    camera with 1,2 mill pix. The design is different as it looks more like a
    business phone and it's a bit slimmer as well. Besides from that, I think
    it's pretty much the same.
