    N70 would be the choice for the given price
    but smart phones are not the ones for girls
    try the L'amour collections from nokia
    7370 and 7360 i guess
    but yaar..dont get girls symbian phones..it is waste of money..

    okie guys ... she has decided to choose between N70 and W800i .. she ll take a demo of both and if she is comfy with the menu n stuff of W800i .. she will go for it. else N70.

    7360 - Camera is only VGA and so not considering
    7370 - Slider phone so not considering.

    It's difficult to convince even most guys about the fact even though it's staring them in the face. LOL!
    Anyway, your girlfriend is lucky she decided to try the W800i out. There is simply no reason why she would want not want to buy it once she tries it out. Show her the phone's slick and fast interface, the camera pics...

    ...and if she's still apprehensive about it, just plug in the earphones (in HER ear) and let her have a taste of the sound quality. To seal the deal, just explain her what the bundled 512 MB stick is capable of! If she still wants to buy a NOKIA... man, I sure do pity her and wish her luck! I can suggest better ways to waste 20,000 bucks though! :)

    Tell her to take SE W800i. From her perspective, it has almost everything that N70 has and its cheaper, smaller and has more memory :)

    I am using N70 and its fantastic. But for females, a smaller handset looks better ;) Even I was considering W800, but the orange colour :shock: was a biiiig problem.

    The other cameras on all phones currently available won't be too better than the 'stupid' VGA camera that you mentioned.

    If you want a camera, go in for a proper digital/film camera.

    cmon dude ... there is a lot of difference in quality of pics clicked between a vga camera and a 1.3 / 2.0 megapixel camera .. have seen mobile pics and the extra resolution helps a lot.

    Some people just comment on subjects without having any substantial knowledge about it! Have you seen any picture taken from a W800i, mail2and? I bet you haven't! Just open your eyes a bit wider - they are available all over the net. Have a look at them. You will be changing your opinion before you can spell the word 'camera'. LOL!

    I have W800i so I know what pictures from W800i means. Yes it is the best camera phono of today.

    But still you cannot compare it with pictures taken with good DigiCams.

    1. No phone cam of today, have Optical Zoom, the digital zoom is not that useful in low light conditions.
    2. The controls you will get with digicam will give much better results than best of integrated camera.

    W800i/K750i atleast try to give simillar controls as in Sony Digicams but they lack many things.

    So if photography is what you are serious about, then don't look for camera phone. As of casual clicking, this is best phone of today.
