I've read countless threads asking which handset is superior.. Hyundai tx115c, 95c, Nokia 3205, etc etc.. Search no more people.

Get the Nokia 6225.

The Hyundais, especially the 115c, are shockers, with bugs galore. I'd have to say I'm a bit of a phoneslut, having owned 10 phones, both 021 and 027 in the last two years. The Nokia 6225 is the best by a long shot. The photos, once emailed, are superb quality. The ringer volume is more than adequate, the games rock, the menu system rocks, the whole damn phone rocks. Unless you're obsessed with clamshells, the 6225 is the way to go.

My two cents.

I tend to disagree with you on one of the points you have made.

I have a Hyundai 115c and I rate it (so does everyone I know who has had either a 95c or a 115c)

I cant seem to find any bugs with it, yet you say it has bugs galore and is a shocker!!!!

I agree the 6225 is a great phone!!!

Besides if you want a real phone the 7400 is awesome, easy to use and wickd picture and video quality........I had a play with one the other day.

I agree, Red. I'm pretty confident that the problems with the TX115 were isolated to early firmware versions. It's a perfectly competent handset and, for $299, it's good value too.

The 7400 from what I've seen is pretty good overall, the only MAJOR drawback is no tethered data. Data functionality via cable has been disabled in firmware. Same story for the Sanyo 4920. The 8100 cable will physically fit it and (once we have the updated software) you should be able to sync with it, but until (?when/if?) there's firmware that supports data you can't use it as a modem.

hehe *is shot down*

Fair call if you like the Hyundais, and I do admit my 95c served me well, but I just found aspects of the 115c so frustrating.. It's the little things that count IMO, so instances of the phone not beeping when I receive a txt (regularly), not being able to save images from MMS, often not hearing the phone when it rings as it's so quiet!, the keypad is chunky, the screen is tiny, the java game selection is poor, the list goes on..

I just find that, with a direct comparison, the 6225 can do everything the 115c can, only better, and in many cases, even more. I know it's a couple of hundred dollars extra, but I reckon it's worth every cent.

Well I have to say that even though the Samsung N391 is maybe not in the same sort of league as the 115c or 6225 it is one hell of a good fone. im tellin u the N391 is an excellent fone with a camera and massive adress book (900 contacts) the only drawback is that it is extremely hard to find ringtones or games for it as it is exclusive to New Zealand and Aussie. The only place witch I can find ringtones is the Xtra website which is (im afraid to say) terrible. Anyone that can find a better website to get ringtones/games from is a legend.
