This will always be my favourite ... bought it in University secondhand, just loved every part of the 'cool' Walkman functionality: Sony Ericsson W850i

I had a W550 when it came out but later upgraded to the W595 (came with cool seperate speakers). I still have the W595 for some reason. Can't turn it on because I lost the charger years ago :)

I just love phones that transform physically. I've had both sliders and flip-phones, and they're both way more fun than a boring slab of featureless glass. This is definitely one aspect where life has gotten way more boring. Car design is another.

No Nokia 8850/8890/8910 as some of the best looking ones? That Motorola top of the list was ugly.

No Siemens ME45 or Alcatel OTE 511 either (I liked this one, it was tiny and very well built.

But the S3 was a nice phone, maybe not the best but it was the first really big Screen curved design that came out. The Iphones were still going boxey.

And that blackberry was ugly. the 8910 was nicer with the 3 keypad.

Had the W800 and it was also awesome.

Less gimmicky with no sliding out stuff.

Never had one, but always thought that the Motorola Razr V3 was the best looking phone at the time.
