Good camera phones? Substitute for a actual quality camera.

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
Can anyone recommend a cell phone with a good camera? Perhaps the one with the best camera? I need a camera, just for everyday stuff, and my cell phone is really old now, so I figure getting both in one would be a good option. Unfortunately, I know nothing at all about cell phones. I really mean it, nothing. So, I have no idea where to begin. If you could point me to some recommendations, that would be sweet, thanks.

The only things I'm looking for are:
-Good service with Cingular network (as in designed for Cingular)
-Excellent camera (preferably the best)
-Good looking design (I prefer the tall and thin look. Flip phones don't tickle my fancy, but if you find a good one, please post it.)

Those are the most important qualities in order of most important to least important. Thanks for any good finds!

Yes, thats a very nice phone, but if u decide to go for it go for the k790i because the k800i is made for europe and it will work over here, but my uncle just got that phone and he had tons of trouble using it w/ cingular and ended up trading it for a krzr.

For the US, K790a. As far as I know, the camera is 3.2MP and I think it's the only one with 3.2MP right now. It also has EDGE.

The K800 is the Uk Version.

Thanks, the K790a is EXACTLY what I had in mind. If i could draw out what I was thinking about in my first post, it would look like that. Unfortunately, it costs $480 at amazon. That's a lot of cash. I was thinking about keeping it under $250. Are there any that fit the bill there? Thanks for the great suggestions again guys, you read my mind!

Some tone-downed models would be:

With 3G:
Sony Ericsson V630

With EDGE:
Sony Ericsson W810i

Not sure of the prices for those but they shouldn't be as expensive.

Maybe try the K610? But this one has a 2.0 MP camera.

I am getting the K790a myself in November

Hmm, the picture quality of those other models is significantly lower than the K790a. It's just exactly waht I want, but for so much money! Is there any way to get a phone for cheaper?

I don't think so, like I said earlier. I think it is the only phone with a 3.2MP camera as of today. If your budget limits you from it, the next thing would be to look at the 2.0MP camera phones.
