    I'm due an upgade from O2, and am looking at what handset to get, and would duly appreciate any advice from some of you guys on here. I'm on a good tariff, so should be able to get pretty much any handset that is out there. What would you recommend?

    First of all, a little about me. My last three phones have all been Sony Ericsson (k800i, k750i, w800i). Prior to that I was a Nokia user. Over the past three upgrades, I've never considered a Nokia, as I felt they went off the boil a little, but I'm wondering if the time is right to move back to them. What am I looking for:

    • A camera at least as decent as the K800i
    • The ability to sync the contacts and diary (and possibly email) with my MacBook
    • Decent web support (3G or better - if such a thing exists! - preferred)
    In addition, but not essential, I would like

    • A good music player for listening to MP3s
    • The possiblity of using it in conjunction with a bluetooth GPS and Co-Pilot/Tom-Tom
    • Email sync with my email / gmail account(s)
    What would most users recommend? If there's nothing in particular that stands out from my k800i (the k810i looks like the exact same phone, with just poorer buttons! ;) ) then advice on which would be best to get as an upgrade to then sell on the handset here or on the 'bay for a decent return would be appreciated. Basically, which handsets are most in demand!

    Thanks in advance

    meant to say, I'm considering the Nokia N95 - anyone got any feedback on how good it is? how does it compare in size to the K800i?

    It's slightly wider and slightly shorter than the K800i.

    Seems to fit what you want to do (camera, Apple syncing, good web-browser, HSDPA, 3.5mm headphone socket, dedicated music controls, sat nav, gmail compatibility).

    It's a very nice phone but some people coming from simpler phones find the battery life disappointing.

    How long does battery life last (without bluetooth and wifi on)?
