It seems that the Nokia 6120 Classic is the best overall handset today for the money. Not only it has all the normal features that you would expect from a high-end phone, but it also comes with dual WCDMA support (so it works as 3G on both US and Europe), it weighs only 89 grams, it has a very fast CPU compared to other S60 devices and its new S60 version enables h.264 playback and A2DP. Only shortcomings are the lack of WiFi/VoIP and the video recording artificially limited to 15 fps (so it doesn’t compete with the N series). The reason why I call this the best overall handset is because for these features, it costs less than $330 which is a very low price, considering.

Here’s our cellphone collection so far. There are two missing phones from the picture that I have tacked away in my closet (Nokia N80 and SonyEricsson K700i), plus 2 more that I sent to my brother in Greece and 1 that I sold a few months ago (the terrible LG Chocolate GSM). I am debating which phone to get next to scrutinize. I am thinking either a Motorola Linux touchscreen one, or two really cheap ones (e.g. Nokia 5070 and SonyEricsson Z310i).
