Thanks to me getting a bug ridden E63 (only a week old) they have bowed to pressure and have offered me either a E71 or a 5800 but i got to call them tomorrow.

Which is the better one? i`m not that phone savvy anymore.

oh they also offered me a lg ku990i but that means nothing to me.

2 very different phones so I guess you need to look at what you want in a phone. QWERTY's on resistive touch screens can be very frustrating but the QWERTY on the E71 is fantastic. My misus has the E71 and it is just a brilliant phone. Thousands of apps to meet your needs, good web browsing despite the low res screen and a camera that will do for the odd snap. I would assume that the 5800 is better for music and it has a 3.5mm jack over the E71's 2.5mm jack.

I havent used the 5800 but own the N97. In saying that, if I was offered the choice of the 5800 or the E71, I would choose the E71 every time, but thats just me!
