It's true that GSMArena biased towards Nokia at this point. However, think about the past, was GSMArena praise Nokia as like this review? Don't forget, SE used to be top pick by GSMArena, and GSMArena was not predicted the Nokia going to accel a lot.

But it's sad that Motorola seems to get ignored. Not a single Motorola was mentioned. Shame on you GSMArena!

Still, I'm a Nokia supporter and it's really happy to see Nokia has finally got out their "dark" period in the last 2 years. Bravo Nokia!

slim phone? i prefer W890 - if it was become available before GSMArena make that review :)

for cam phone? i prefer imobile-902 - beats any N92s or K850s or N82s or G800s or Viewtys or whatsoever out there by a far great margin :) or i should also say SO905iCS if that was only meant to be available here :P

Even GSMArena said it. K850i is not even in the league. I should have bought N95 instead. But this will be useful to me as experience that before you buy you should check the reviews on GSMArena and review their shootout so you can buy the best cameraphone of that time. Peace

As usual; Biased

You don't even consider other phones like v8 etc.

In your news it's always nokia (two news for n82 where it should have been combined to 1)

No news about P5i and the rumored 5MP + 3x optical zoom for SE

No news about dvb-h mobile tv.
No news about cellphones with OLED technology

biased, biased, biased...
I believe you're European loyalists of Nokia.
Eventhough Nokia turned you down..
Biased...

@ Y1VZ

When GSMArena made the shootout comparison between N95 and K850, it was stated that K850 was still in its beta. But after the production unit was sold, Mobile-Review.com reviewed the K850's camera quality, but the result was still the same as the beta. So it was clear that K850 image quality was just crappy. Even top review sites like GSMArena and Mobile-Review said it themselves. It's impossible for them to hypocritic since they are completely different sources.

And now it seems that GSMArena is trying to correct their errors from the reviews and tests that they have previously made. I don't see anything wrong with this year's selection. It is as unbiased as it was last year.

And about W960 being the best music phone?? I highly doubt it. Mobile-Review, another useful site for mobile phone reviews, even stated it themselves that Walkman phone are NOT up to par against Samsung i450 and even the Nokia 5310 XpressMusic!!

Y1VZ:

That shows what kind of decieving site GSMArena was. no offense to the site but this will surely hurts GSMArena's reliability in the eyes of it's critical mentors ;)

Re:
"The main issue with previous Nokia cameras - the overprocessed look is gone with the N95 and the "experience Nokia had with their photo mobiles so far seems enough to compete with the years of Sony know-how in the field""

"experience Nokia had with their photo mobiles so far seems enough to compete with the years of Sony know-how in the field"
^^
This is a very ridiculous statement imho, Nokia had beaten SE due to the sensor size(K850 has 1/2.8" while N95 has 1/2.5") advantage which favors N95. this has nothing to do with nokia's imaging experience being enough to outperform Sony's decade long imaging experience. this is quite unfair as SE just tries to cut K850's size in a price of a sensor size shortage. SE just thinks about size factor which is the criticism of K800 before when they designed K850, if not SE can make K850 as thick as K800 just to fit the same 1/2.5" sensor found in N95 to the K850 and lets see who will stand out - as i bet the SE will rule over nokia. if GSMarena have only thought this before they post that ridiculous thing on their review. they would have find out that nokia will not and imho never match the Imaging experience Sony has with their cameras.

and also do not forget that there is still one high-end cybersgot phone from SE mainly designed by Sony Japan - that's the SE SO905iCS which features a 3x optical zoom lens and a larger sensor given it's extreme length and thickness. SE has failed to make K850 camera better than N95 due to the sensor weakness, so they make a wrong decision in cutting the size for thew K850. but if they only follow the path SE Japan did with their own CS phone. the story will be reversed for sure :)
