Market update (Week 45) - read the full textInforming you on the latest (and greatest) mobile phones that hit the stores on a weekly basis becomes a tradition, though in all honesty, we didn't anticipate it to enjoy this amount of demand. So, respectful of traditions, we give you the most recent market update. As previously noted, we won't...

It's true. In my country (Indonesia), you can see complaints about Nokia phones and service centres in the national newspaper everyday. Service will take 3 days of examination, if fails they'll say u have 2 wait for another 2-4 weeks for spareparts 2 come. If fails again, they'll ship ur phone 2 Jakarta for repair and u'll have 2 wait again. Waiting can take 3-6 months (!) What gives??? I'll stick 2 my trusty old Ericsson T39m.

I agree, there's no reason to argue over which brand is better. On paper, Nokia beats everything because they jam pack a lot of their products with features. The usability of these features, however, are called into question. Sure, you might have a 5 megapixel camera, but how long does it take to boot up? How long does your battery last before the phone dies? How stable is your OS? How much lag is there when you want to merely send a text message? Your phone might be able to do it all, but it takes a while to get to all those features. Personally, I believe it's what you mind compromising. Sure, my camera might only be 2 megapixels, but my phone's no bulky and I don't need to turn it off and on (or take out the battery and put it back) to reboot my phone from it freezing all of the time. But that's just me, some people don't mind sluggish, atrocious performance for the sake of being able to say their phone has everything.

What are you guys always crapping about this or that brand's better... I work for a mobile phone reseller and believe me when I say that Nokia phones are the ones with the most complaints! They break down so often, not to mention the poor stability on the symbian phones! That software is so lousy! Ok, it's very advanced but it just doesn't work that well. When I buy a phone I don't want it to be more @ the repair center then me being able to use it, and that's the story for Nokia at this time with the latest models!!

//Nokia users hate SE B'cuz SE is better than Nokia in
Nokia N91 has the best soundquality. N81 has better quality than any walkman (its better than W960). I just can't think walkmans as a music phones because they lack a build-in 3,5mm plug.

Who is still using 256k screen, less than qvga on mid-end models and generally very small screens? SonyEricsson. Atleast they are getting better: W880(1,8'')->W890(2,0''), z750(2,2''), etc.

Even thought that K850 takes worse shots than N95, Viewty and G600?

i don't understand why nokia fans hate SE that much i don't see the same hate against samsung or moto or any other brand maybe be becoz they feel unsafe any more 'coz every body knows that SE is the biggest contender with nokia so what i don't care i'm a consumer i will buy any phone that suits me i don't care if it was nokia or SE or moto im the the one who's paying his hard work to get a mobile device, what SE is my father so i must be loyal to him or nokia is mother wake up guys and tickle that brain of yours

Touchscream? Are you serious? Its touchscreen. Scream means a very loud high pitched noise.
