    Default Phone Recommendation

    Dear all,
    A friend of mine is looking into getting a new cellphone. Her minimum requirement would be "a camera phone that supports video calling, recording and mp3 playback". On top of that, she wants it to support bluetooth connection.

    Cheers

    Maybe you should try the next model up. Longer lasting battery.

    Motorola RAZR models seem to be quite popular among the young people. What do you guys think about it?

    Great phone...had one for ages.

    There's a new model (V8?) been out for about three months going for $799! Vodafone staff en masse told me it's not significantly better than the cheaper (slightly older) model, so be careful there.

    Thats kind of like asking what car should I buy. All those features are pretty standard on a 3G phone, at $400 plus. Nokia are meant to be the most reliable. The iphone would be out until hey release the 3G one.

    Yeah, I am aware that I have asked a very general question.

    However, I am more interested to know whether anyone has had a good or bad experience with a particular model of phone.

    I don't think you can go wrong with Nokia, and they have the lowest failure repair rate according to DSE. This is a good site http://www.gsmarena.com/ to view reviews and to see what other people think of a particular model.
