Hi folks,
Need a new phone, and can get either of the two phones in title for $79 on my Vodafone contract.

Just hoping for any feedback, pros and cons, on either model.

I've tried looking for reviews on net, but impossible to find proper ones in between all the spammy blog "reviews".

I usually stick to Nokia, but have been disappointed with the durability of my last couple.

Pretty much down to these two - big price jump for more advanced models.

Put simply, I require a phone that's relatively durable, good battery life, good for making/receiving calls, decent camera, decent web browser (is it actually feasible to browse websites on phones like these?)

I've checked out the comparison chart on Vodafone's site, very similar specs, Nokia 2730 camera is a bit higher quality, and is a classic "candybar" opposed to Samsung c5130's slider (I've never had a slider before).

Hoping some user experiences could point me towards which one I'm better to go with. Any responses appreciated, cheers.

Probably can't do better than handling both phones in a Vodafone store...
