Hi all,

I'm looking at upgrading my currently outdated Samsung A900 mobile to a more recent, and hopefully more functional GSM phone.

Thing is, I'm wanting to get a device that has a fair chunk of internal memory, or expandable memory with a fairly common type of media (MircoSD rather than say, M2. I find M2 is more expensive.).

So far, I've had a bit of a look at the w950i, which for those out there that aren't in the know on this mobile, has 4gb of internal memory with a touch screen for Sony's walkman music player.

From what I've read online, alot of people have generally complained about how cumbersome the phone is to use, and that it isnt quite as intuitive as it could have been and this is the phones largest drawback.

Does anyone here have this model of phone or could provide their own feedback on it?

Another model I've been looking at is the Nokia 5310, which is a little on the expensive side for me, but its so damn cool.

And, if theres a model out there that may be more suited towards what I want, please let me know.

HSDPA is very low on the agenda for me, I don't have a need (yet, this may change in the future) for any data connections.

The only benefit I can see for the W960i is the increased 8gb of memory and the camera.

I guess I should also point out that I'm tight with my cash, the cheaper the better =]
