Somewhere out there, there has to be a website that offers exactly what I am after. Let me put in a list of requirements and it’ll give me a list of phones that have those features. I’m pretty sure that Nokia once had something like this, but now you can only compare phones for a couple of features at once. I don’t have time to trawl through lots of pages full of lists of features, not do I particularly want to go into a shop and face the sales guys without having a little understanding first. Too, too frustrating. Well, back to the review sites.
I know what you mean: I’m in the same position. The Nokia UK site is awful, and what is even more frustrating is that phones that they say are available are nowhere to be seen.
The mobile market seems wierd – prices are dictated by the networks, not manufacturers, and when you visit a shop you still have to make do with a sticker to get an idea of what the UI is like!
I’ve just ventured out onto Oxford St and still couldn’t face the shops. They just don’t look friendly at all – but it’s going to have to be done.
