    Well... if ur going for a nokia(and money isnt a matter) go for "Vertu", nokia's luxury series, which'll make heads turn!! Or the 6500 classic will also do the job for u. But i have a Sony ericcson W850i and it's great! In ur question, i think u meant "W850i". It's a very good model. If u plan on buying this, go for the black version, cause the white seems a little... feminine. But then again, it's up to u.

    73 ME can't go wrong and very loud when compared to the N95 which in my opinion for the money sucks .

    i use the N 5310 4 Gb sd card and very very loud

  • the N95 has the largest screen, and it's the nicest, and it's not as chunky as the other phones either, and it'll hold more music then the others.
