    k850i is not all that, it gets slow after alot of images are on, and the keys are annoying

    n95 is old now

    what network are you on ?

    as if i was you i would wait for the n95 8gb black to come out (if your not already on vodafone)

    k850 need a firmware update to fix the flash sync problems in low light. There was supposed to be an update on SEUS today, but it allegedly got pulled at the last minute. There are a lot of firmware problems with this phone at the minute, but it'll be a very nice phone once they get ironed out.

    N95 8GB would be the n95 to go for as rickparmar says, not the original n95. They've allegedly sorted out the battery life and the build quality issues. In reality its yet to be mass reviewed by the public, and it's just as likely to have teething problems like the K850i too.

    The bottom line is that one is a smartphone and one is a regular phone. One also costs a lot more than the other. People will always have strong views towards and against each handset, so just pick the one you like the best :)

    My cousin has the Viewty and this maybe just another opinion but I must say it's horrid...

    My advice: goto Youtube, search the name of device and you'll see users going through every single step from opening the box to using the applications.

    i was not sure on these 2 phones.
    Then finally made my mind up and got the N95 with 02 and so far its great.
    It came with a 8GB memory card.
    Throught the k850i was annoying with its touch screen and tiny buttons.

    You get used to the touch screen, I hated it first but like anything you get used to it. N95 has poor battery life I was told, in comparison to the sony anyway, I always sony phones though as never had any trouble with them, its the only sony products I ever buy as I dont like the brand usually
