Looking to upgrade from my trusty Nokia 6111 - orange contract which has now been downgraded to £10 per month & to be honest I like orange for the service & signal reception great. Orange now offering a free phone with the choice being Samsung U600 SE K810i or the Nokia 6300. Hubby has SE W850i - can anybody recommend?:clap:

K810i is easily the best of the 3 mate.

go for the u600 for peace of mind. the k810 is not built very well and seems to have some issues.
samsung build quality is a lot better than sony ericssons. that's what tends to put people off them.
sonys have great battery and features. but the software, the build quality, and the call quality really let them down. the k810i is no exception from my experience. never again.

K810i for the win!

I find it perfect, I have the K800i, its predecessor (the difference between the two is very small, mainly aesthetic I have found) and it has never frozen on me. Great camera, looks amazing the K810i and great battery.

I have K800i, and want the K810i really badly... but the K850i is due in October or so.... so don't know whether to wait...

I had similiar dilema, between U600 and K810i. My bro had a U600 so messed with that for a while, nice phone, but the camera didnt seem as good as the K810i so I went with the SE.

The camera is really good, the flash is like a real flash, it can take pics in the dark or when in low light.

Im used to a smartphone so was worried about getting a non smartphone, tbh though in the end you only ever end up using it as a phone anyway.

to me the biggest thing I also wanted out of the phone is to have a decent camera for those never miss shots with the kids, so I got the K810i

I have to say though Ive had it 2 months now, and the bottom off the keypad is a little loose already, I have contected SE direct and they saids send it back, I'll wait a bit longer and send it to them direct I think.

the U600 is a nice phone though, nice screen, you get used to the heat buttons.

hope this helps
