Recently, I bought a new phone. The one I used during the past months was just borrowed from a friend. I'm grateful to him for allowing me to borrow it for more than six months. I always dreamed having a phone with a very good built-in camera, recorder, FM tuner and mp3 player. Then one day, I decided to buy one through credit card. The payment is monthly installment with zero interest. Now I can play my favorite music and upload pictures on the web. What are the features you want with your current phone. Or if you'll buy one, what are the features you want it to have?

Personally i feel a computer should act as a mini computer in the absence of a computer. It should have a music player,good camera bluetooth and other sharing media to share stuffs with my friends,radio........... What not.. A phone is not just a phone anymore. I mainly use my cell phone for all other purposes than just calling.

Yes, phones are just like mini-computers now. It can do almost anything a computer can.

i agree.. i always look for a mobile phone with good camera feature, bluetooth connectivity, 3G capability, expandable memory and of course with cool design.. I prefer candy-bar form factor since flex won't be a problem to me.

I guess it's easy to find the kind of phone you're looking for nowadays. Big phone memory is not a problem anymore because of MicroSDs. Phone memories now are expandable up to 2 gigabytes plus the built-in memory. So you can surely have a phone for your song playlist. :)

Has a audio player video resolution must be clear internet ready wi-fi availability compact and slim. If theres waterproof and shockproof features im buying it no matter how expensive it is . hope researchers and developers make it possible as soon as possible

Audio player is also a big factor for me. I think waterproof phones will really make a big market. I'm sure phone makers are now thinking of or maybe they're into development now of those kind of phones.

I currently have a Nokie N-Gage but, it sometimes needs to be reformatted every now and then when it hangs up or lags on certain features like being unable to set up the alarm. If I would purchase a new mobile phone, I guess I'd go with one that can give multi-media features as well. Play radio, listen to music, record and play Video since most mobile phones would always have the default features of being able to make and receive calls as well as send SMS. (^_^ )

I like a phone that allows me to take pictures and playing Tetris (I am pretty sure everyone on here knows about my Tetris obession). I love taking pictures and playing Tetris.

For me it would be the built-in camera, the good player and video recorder, big memory, a radio and some good games. The size also matters to me. Though my motorola V9 does not have a radio, and the camera is not so nice, it's doing great for me. I've had this since February of this year. I have no plans of changing my phone yet as phones can get very expensive also, plus the fact that the model changes very fast.

I usually choose the camera quality~ there you have it... These days its the camera, video, G3 and web surfing capabilities... And how the phone would fit my everyday routine... And I choose phones which are sort of slim.

If I bought a new phone I would like to get a music player,also a camera! because I would really like to tape important events without bringing something where I have to carry a huge bag for my other camera hehehe! and I would like to get a phone where you can watch tv.

Well when i buy a cell phone i just want it to work well, lol and it has to have a good vice mail system built in and one thing i like about the phone i have now is the camera feature but the most important thing for me is for it to be the least expensive, i don't usually think much about the luxuries of the phone i buy.
