I prefer flip top phones too. I had a Sharp GX25 for a while, better than the 15 by far! It has the same quality display as the GX30i so its really clear. But it only took me about 4 videos and 20 pictures or so before I ran out of memory.

Or if your gonna spend around $500, have a look at the Sony Ericsson K700i for a phone that just about does anything! It's not a flip top but a wicked phone, best I have ever owned. Check out this link to compare features with the GX25:

if storage space is an issue - then look for something that takes flash cards.

I have an F500i (Model down from K700) and it is by far the best phone I have ever used.

both phones are good, ( i have a gx15 as a backup) but restricted by Vodafone and customised to the $%^$^ and back.. best best,

look at the Sony Ericsson and please get one that is *NOT* Vodafone LIVE customised (sold by Vodafone retail here) it's much more feature rich and got heaps more storage space (my reccommendation is the k700i) as it's got like almost 50 megs of memory which will last forever. (48MB)

"muppet" may be able to de-vodafoneise it if you get stuck with a Voda one.

Also all the sharps cannot detect fast keypresses like click click click click, , I'm a fast texter and this really annoys me.

I agree about Sharp not picking up fast key clicks which is fine if your not a fast txter. I have owned the GX10i, GX30i and the GX25 and they have all been like this.
The S/E K700i is Vodafone Live customised though... slightly. Wicked phone though, the best I have ever owned!
