Sony Ericsson K850i vs LG KU990 Viewty vs Samsung G600 vs Nokia N95 8GB

It's the 5-megapixel camera phone face off -- they're this year's must-have gadget, but which one is the right for you? We take a look at the best camera phones on the market

If you're a hopped-up megapixel junkie, insatiably craving the latest camera phones with the best specs, you'll be thrilled to hear there'll be four phones available before the end of the year that'll proudly boast photo-inspiring 5-megapixel cameras.

The Sony Ericsson K850i Cyber-shot is set to launch around Christmas, the LG KU990 Viewty is out in October, the Samsung G600 is already out and the Nokia N95 8GB should hopefully be out by the end of the year.

If you're wondering what the differences between them are, here's a quick roundup of all four handsets. For more information on camera phones and phones in general, make sure you check out our big pimpin' mobile phone reviews section.

Sony Ericsson K850i Cyber-shot
Behold Sony Ericsson's first 5-megapixel camera phone, the K850i (pictured) -- potentially one of Sony Ericsson's best Cyber-shot cameras yet. We had a quick play with it the other day and our first impressions were very good indeed.

The K850i's star feature is its 5-megapixel camera with auto-focus, xenon flash and automatic lens cover. It also has HSDPA (3.5G) connectivity for high-speed Internet access, and supports a 4GB Memory Stick Micro (M2) or 2GB microSD card.

Our only initial concerns with the K850i are the four-way navigation key, which is unusually embedded in the keypad and can be fiddly to press. The touch-sensitive section of the screen is also a little awkward to use.
