NikT: I think you'd be quite satisfied with the N8 if you see one going reasonably cheap, the move from a resistive screen to a capacitive one alone would be well worth it. It is also outstanding for music and photography. These sorts of feature-focused smartphones are a bit of a lost art.

Thanks Nik. Will be on the look out for one, maybe down the road in a year, just around the corner to when I go EU, it may be cheaper to grab one off trademe. Lol.  I really prefer a feature focused smartphone if thats what its called oposed to the candy bar style iphone type phones in the wider market today.

NikT: Just in an update to this one, I've got my hands on an N8 from the archives, and what a lovely little piece of kit this still is!

Yep, Symbian Belle isn't too bad.  The camera is very good, better than the 920 even. 

I agree on your comments also on the capacitive screen V the resistive screen.

I have an 808 which I use occasionally for the camera. There are still some enthusiasts keeping it alive with a 3rd party app store and custom firmware.
