Best on a Budget

If you’re not looking for anything too flash, the FM radio and 1.3 megapixel camera make this Sony Ericsson T280i a bargain too good to miss at just £19.95. The mobile internet browser, Bluetooth connectivity and a built-in hands-free loudspeaker make this a good choice for those on a budget or those looking for a low-cost second handset.
Best for Photography
Sony Ericsson C510 was £199.95 NOW £99.95 at The Carphone Warehouse
With a saving of £100, the brand new Sony Ericsson C510 camera phone is incredible value for money. The handset packs in features often found on digital cameras, including face detection, a 3.2 mega pixel camera and Smile Shutter. The face detection automatically adjusts settings when people’s faces are in shot, while the Smile Shutter automatically takes the picture at that perfect moment. The illuminated shortcut keys will give you quick and easy access to the camera features - including a light, for better quality shots, even at night.
LG Viewty was £199.95 NOW £99.95 at The Carphone Warehouse
The LG Viewty’s design means it looks as good as any digital camera. With a 5.1 megapixel camera and video player with the clarity of 120 frames per second, this is a phone that could definitely compete with a digital camera. Capturing holiday memories will be a pleasure to take and look at with its Schneider Kreuznach optics (the lens manufacturer for Kodak cameras) and 170MB of internal memory means you can store around 70 photos.
LG Secret was £299.95 NOW £149.95 at The Carphone Warehouse
Made with carbon fibre and tempered glass, the attractive LG Secret phone is one of the slimmest handsets to feature a 5 megapixel camera. The handset has touch-screen and ‘exotic Neon Touch’ navigation to make flicking through the menu very simple. It’s slim design means it will slip right into your pocket and costing just £149.95 definitely wont leave a dent.
Best for Music
Sony Ericsson W980 was £259.95 NOW £129.95 at The Carphone Warehouse
The Sony Ericsson W980 is their ultimate music phone thanks to 8GB of internal memory which can hold up to 2,500 songs. A slim-flip design and responsive touch-sensitive keys on the outside means the handset has the look and feel of an MP3 player too. Other musical features of the W980 include the innovative ‘shake control’ which allows you to change tracks with the flick of a wrist and an FM radio transmitter, which allows music to be played through a radio.
Best for Fashion Followers
Motorola W377 was £49.95 NOW £24.95 at The Carphone Warehouse
If you fancy a fashionable handset on a small budget the W377 is worth a look. On the outside of the colourful flip-open casing is a series of icons to let users know they have received a text, miss a call, or have a low battery. There’s also an integrated camera with zoom, an FM radio, built-in games and mobile web browser.
LG KE970 Shine was £69.95 NOW £34.95 at The Carphone Warehouse
This handset’s silver metallic casing and large mirrored screen make it clear why this it’s called ‘Shine’, with its minimalist look and a thickness of 14mm.
