I have Z 520 clamshell and yes the flex cable was changed twice along the last 3 years and now it happens again but i no longer find this spare unit in the service center so i am using it and the screen flickers and move around and waiting to buy new mobile.
i haven't tried samsung mobiles nor motorolla.
i think samsung mobiles are very light and it wouldn't tolerate( i don't know if this right or wrong),about motorolla in my country the company that guarrantee the motorlla is very bad and don't have good reputation and i won't buy a mobile that hold the same company guarrantee
so what is left now is either nokia or sony ericsson, i prefer sony ericsson but if there is a better nokia phone it is ok.
may be i haven't arranged my points well.
Good build quality,light weight,small in dimension, good keys, good battery,good looking.
i want to buy something as good and better than my Z 520 not less than it.
although z 520 has the problem of flex but i love it and appreciate the phone even it doesn't have the huge features that are available now.
about w 980 i think it doesn't have the option to show the picture of the person calling i have read some comments of people asking about this option.
anyway it is a good phone but it is still expensive in my country it is around 430 USD although in every other country around 250 USD
i think i will wait for the T 715 sony ericsson phone i hope it will be good phone, if not i may think about the w 995 again

thanks for your replies
i do agree with you about not spending much money ... moreAllow me to tell you:
I know clamshell phones have a weakness in flexible cable thing. Some people always said like that. I am worry too about the flexible cable, but it's OK for me. I had used clamshell phone for 21 months and never replace the flexible cable until now. You said Z520's external screen can show picture of person who are calling. I think Sony Ericsson W980 and Motorola RAZR phones can do this too because their external screen is colorful. Of course, W995 is expensive because its features. If you said you want a good looking phone, I would say some Motorola phones (RAZR V3i, RAZR V3x, RAZR V3xx, RAZR Maxx V6, RAZR2 V8, RAZR2 V9, W510), Samsung Z560, Nokia 6600 Fold, and some Sony Ericsson phones (Z770, Z610i, Z555i, W980, W508, T707) are good looking. For quality, all phones have advantage and disadvantage.
So, why do still confuse to buy a phone? Consider what design you want and what features you want.
Hope this will help. Thank you!
which one better, sony ericsson W508 or nokia 5320express music...

thanks for your replies
i do agree with you about not spending much money on a mobile phone. i also have a suspicious about the xpress music phone and also the symbian i thought that i will not like them. i am kinda convinced about sony ericsson phones.
but really i need a phone and have made many searches and haven't decided one till now, i know that there is no perfect one.
i do like clamshells but i am worried about the flex problem also in my country the se service is very bad and i don't want to go again with that problem.
i do like the w 508 and also the w 995 but it is too expensive.
so if you can help me to recommend a mobile for me i will be very thankful
the things that are most important to me: is to have small mobile phone in dimesnions and to be light weight.
another important thing i want a good build phone and also to be a good looking one.
w 995 is a good build one and i haven't heard problems about it till now but it is 113 gram and when in my hand i feel it is little heavy weight.
it has many good features ( i do confess that i don't need all these features) but the main problem it is so expensive
w508 is a good one but when i compare it to the old Z 520 that i still have. both are good looking
z 520 is better in build quality and in keys and even at the external screen. the external screen can show the picture of the person calling and i think this option not included in w 508 since th external screen is only monochrome
it is 3.5 years old and se instead of making better things they are cost saving
i think other features of camera and sound and memory they all are in favour of the w 508
ness, 12 Aug 2009hi! may i know if the camera still works if you flip down the cover? does the external scre... moreness! I think the camera won't work in the flip (cover) is closed. Most of clamshell phones aren't created to do that. Average people who use clamshell phone, open the flip to photo. So, I think no problem, if W508 can't do that. If you want a clamshell phone that can do this, choose Motorola RAZR2 V8 or RAZR2 V9. They can do this (I had ever read in a magazine). :)
Ashraf, 12 Aug 2009Thanks Tim for your answer
what do you think of the W 995 or the nokia 5800 xpress?Glad, you read my opinion! Thank you!
Well, I think Sony Ericsson W995 and Nokia 5800 Xpressmusic are good phone. Both of them have HSDPA support, wifi, GPS, etc. Nokia 5800 Xpressmusic is touch screen and uses Symbian 5th edition operating system, while Sony Ericsson W995 is not. For me, I don't like them. I like clamshell phones (no all types).
hey guys, does anyone own a Sony Ericsson HBH-DS980 Stereo Bluetooth Headset? if yes, can you let me know how good is it? in terms of sound quality during calls and music, battery life, etc. tnx in adv.

I would suggest that you read up the postings for W995. I'm sure you are doing it now. If you ask me, I would not choose either one of them for the fact that I do not believe in spending a lot of money on a mobile phone. Furthermore, I would likely not use those features to surf the net, look at my documents or watch a movie.
I do have an opinion about the Xpress music phone. To me it is horrible that you can't have animated wallpapers displayed. I can't accept that. Even my previous phone, Cookie could do that. In terms of sound quality, I did not hear any difference between my W508 and the Xpress. I had a mobile phone with the symbian platform before and I really dislike it. That's my opinion.
may i know if the camera still works if you flip down the cover? does the external screen shows the image taken?

I think W508's keypad is comfortable or not is depend on how you feel it. I am using old Sony Ericsson Z310i, its keypad (1-#) is flat. For me, it is comfortable.
About the battery, I think it last long or not is depend on the user. If you use your phone heavily, it won't last long. If you want to increase its battery life, turn off 3G signal when you don't need it, decrease the brightness display. So many factors that influence the battery life.
I had read a magazine. It said Lithium Polymer is durable and more "green" (environment) than Lithium Ion.
