    My contract with T-Mobile UK is up for renewal & i think its time to upgrade from my beloved G1 to something else, Question is, What to? Over the past few months i have been looking at many different phone's and i have no idea what to go for.

    Basically I'm after the following from my phone:

    *Android 2.1/2.2 Based device
    *Physical Keyboard
    *Vanilla/Stock Android (No UI)
    *Better Battery Life then my G1

    The phones I've been looking at are the Motorola Milestone, Milestone 2 & the HTC Desire Z/T-Mobile G2

    The only thing with all all of them is they all feature a new UI (Either MotoBlur or Sense) which I'm not after. I thought i had solved all my problems with the T-Mobile G2 (the Desire Z but with just Stock Android) until I found out its for the US only :(

    Is there any other models that anyone can recommend or am I just going have to put up with not having Stock/Vanilla Android?

    I personally prefer HTC Sense to Moto Blur (by quite a lot actually).

    Personally I've had better luck with Motorola phones as of late. In my opinion HTC simply uses too much cheap plastic in their designs.

    Having playing with Both, Sence does seam the lesser of two evils.

    I think most manufactures now-a-days are using too much cheap plastic but that's not about to change so *Shuggs*

    So back to the topic in hand, Does anyone have any recommendations for me?

    I think the next-gen HTC phones are moving to an aluminum casing.

    Well i'm going to get a HTC Desire Z once it launches up here on Nov 3rd... The HD looks enticing too but unknown launch date/carrier.

    Really? They could be interesting but i don't fancy waiting for them. Maybe my next upgrade (Y)

    I'm thinking of the HTC Desire Z as well but I really don't like the look of Sense, Might go ask over at the Desire forums if people have found away to turn it off. If so, I'm sold! :)
