Ha! Some people give me crap to no end about how bad nextel'* coverage supposedly is....but when I get full service in some wierd spots that their beloved highend phones don't, I just laugh at them.

A couple friends have Samsungs, and Kim has a Samsung e316 camera phone on my plan. Samsungs aren't half the phone as the Motorola. My bud Eric just ditched his for a v505 like mine. Samsung makes it hard to turn the ringer off for certain situations. Bad for Kim, she just turns her Cell off at school because of it.

That feature really helps me. When I go into a meeting, I don't open the phone. Two side buttons change and set the ring/vibe mode in seconds.

Nokia was ontop a few years ago, but their phones are still the same, so they're stuck back in 1999, while everything else is ahead. Battery life, and form factor were important to me. The speed of the OS was also important.

I have a samsung e105, everything but a camera, you've seen it Andy. Tiny as crap. You push a button and it does it'* thing right away, very speedy. The flash games are nice too lol...

I find it to be great, a camera would be too much bulk IMO. I have one of the smallest flip phones ever, and still have a real life 7 day standby time. I can ring, ring and buzz, or just buzz if you're curious. Our family has 3 of them now, and i know 2 people who bought them after seeing mine.

My GF'* LG is kinda slow in the menu'*, especially when you're doing picture/camera stuff. But it does work pretty well otherwise. She has ATT/Cingular GSM, and I Have T Mobile, and even on campus she'll have a lot of issues. I used to have TDMA ATT in the same places, and it was just as spotty. I don't know if it'* her phone, or service, but it'* not good....

Comparing processor speeds between the Samsung 426 (I think that'* the one) and the Motorola V505, the motorola is at least twice as fast.

Think of it like Linux vs M$ on the same machine, Apples to Oranges. There'* much more to an OS/response speed then the clock speed. The code in the OS must be elegant, the hardware must work effectively, and not slow down the process with it'* own deficiencies. I'm not saying a motorola is slow, they're good phones too. The Motorola'* when I was buying didn't have menu'* I liked, and was $100 more, because of a nasty camera.

I don't like menus that are "tiled", again something i don't like about that LG, I like ones that are "stacked". Her phone is SLOW, you can push buttons and wait a full second before anything happens.

I've never figured out the camera phone craze yet. I have camera to take pictures and phone to make calls.

I want a camera phone just for those times where I just wish I had a camera. Plus, there is the rule
