The LG CE110 is a decent and affordable basic camera phone with some nice added features.
If you are fan of thin, sleek, black phones and want a smart phone rather than something that is all style and no substance, the i320 could be well worth a look. Try the keyboard out first if you can, though, as it won’t suit everybody
The LG P7200 features a good camera and quality specs, but is let down by the slow interface and badly designed keypad. If you can overlook these flaws you could be on to a winner, but after trialling it for a couple of weeks we're not jumping with joy or showing it off to our mates
LG has brought the first 5-megapixel camera phone to the UK -- it produces good quality images, but a separate digital camera gives you more options. We don't like the blingy design, and while it is by no means a giant, the KG920 is larger and heavier than we'd like

More about business than pleasure, the JAMin has a lot to offer the discerning mobile professional, despite its disappointing multimedia performance.
Motorola’s music mobile combines a full-featured handset that will appeal to a wide range of users whether they're looking for fun, functionality or the perfect mixture of both.
The 7380 is brilliant if you like attention and don't mind inconvenience -- in this case, an awkward interface and a poor screen. Texting and dialling becomes extremely tedious and even if it attracts an admirer, you'll probably not be able to input their number into this phone
The 6301 is a great choice for a T-Mobile HotSpot @Home cell phone. Just don't count on its camera.
The RIM BlackBerry Curve 8900 brings a number of improvements and additions to make it a nice upgrade to the Curve 8300 series. That said, AT&T offers other QWERTY smartphones that include 3G support and for less.
