    Yeah, avoid those LG Chocolate phones. The heat touch sensor in the top rubs against your cheek and presses buttons while in a call. Renders the add-on useless.

    I have a £10(guessing), and it's really incredible. It does everything and more.

    I have the Sony Ericsson K750i. It is nice and easy to use and has a great camera.

    Costs around £60 - £80 nowadays.

    If you like taking pictures, the SE k800i Black on Vodafone is £85 at The Link.

    Nokia's 5200 6111 7373 look like stylish and good phones. My friend told people to stand still and he got his LG Shine then reflected it into thier eyes with the Sun :p.

    I had the same problem...I was hyped over the LG Shine but after I read the awful reviews, as gorgeous as it looks, I couldn't bring myself to buy it.
    I bought a Sansung u600 instead. 3.2mp camera, fm radio, expandable flash memory, mp3 player, and it's a nicely designed slider-phone with a much bigger, better screen than the LG Chocolate. The u600 is better looking, IMO. And specs-wise it pwns it AND the Shine.

    Well, I don't talk that much so my battery lasts about 5-7 days.
    I'm glad you like it, it's very cool. The pics online don't really do it justice.
    I'll show you mine:

    Obviously you won't like the color too much, but the white one and the silver and metallic blue are nice =)

    Ohh, forgot to mention the speakers are great, too. The number one complaint about the Shine was abnormally low ringer volume. With this phone, you have the option of it being obnoxiously loud, similar to the Razr. I like that XD.
    60MB internal memory too, which is good for making your own ringtones and savings heaps of pics. The photo-editing software on the phone is neat as well.

    I've got the E900 and it has those touch pads
    It's a good phone. Things don't happen in your pocket because, well it's a slide phone so it's on lock while it's down...
    Overall I'd give it a 8.5/10

    You should check out the newer Sony Ericsson phones and Samsung sliders. Very sleek and have great reviews.
