Top 10 phones of November
CNET.com.au's Jeremy Roche leads you through November's most popular mobiles.

O2's new mobile phones debut at number one and three this month with the introduction of the Xda IIs PDA/phone-hybrid and the second incarnation of the company's smart phone, the Xphone II.

This knocks Sony Ericsson's K700i off its pedestal down to second place with the P910i moving down to fifth.

The Samsung E800, which received a CNET.com.au Editors' Choice Award, fared reasonably well moving from ninth position up to fourth. A mention must also go to the other two new mobile phone additions to this month's chart, the Sony Ericsson K500i and the Motorola E398.

Much better in terms of hardware specs and price when compared against HP iPAQ h6365. Definitely a winner for a full-blown high performance PDA smartphone.

LG U8120
 
It may not be much different from the U8110, but for the loyal users, this is an the ideal upgrade.

Reader Opinion
Excellent phone but no Bluetooth! I would prefer complete wireless however the USB connection aint bad, and easy to use software. Now just need to work out how to convert mpeg to 3gp.

Sharp GX15
 
The GX15 is a generally pleasant phone for Vodafone Live! users, although you can get better phones to use with the service if you're prepared to spend more.

Reader Opinion
Love this phone - Bang for Buck this is the best phone out there. I have a more expensive top end phone (nokia 6260) and i rather use my gx15 any day.
