    Ive had a G1 since day one in the UK but i spilt tea all over it:mad: and it doesn't work too well anymore.

    I need a new android phone. my one pet hate about the G1 was the lack of internal memory. I know you can root it to use the mem card but I am not technical enough.

    Can anyone recommend the best android phone with a physical keyboard please?

    many thanks in advance

    Agreed, no competition there for what you asked for (it is also what I have, after a HTC hero, I enjoy it very much albeit choppy video playback every thing else is perfect)

    Apart from physical keyboard, milestone is also good in other things such as it's built in quality is great, overall design is just amazing.Milestone is pretty large handset but fittable in your hand and also got good network reception.

    If you wanted a cheaper phone then the Samsung Portal is supposed to be ok.

    There's also the LG Intouch Max from T-Mobile. Nicer keyboard than but not as powerful as the Milestone.

    I have tried most of the phones- and with a physical keyboard- the hands down winner by miles( sorry bad pun ) is the milestone.

    Its not the best looking- but its quick- good battery life and once you get used to the keyboard then you fly.

    Its a great phone- and if it was given 1/4 the marketing budget that the Droid got- it would have flown off the shelves here too.

    If you need to ask me anything about it -please feel free to message me.

    The Milestone IS the Droid...


    Unless you mean it wasn't advertise in the UK as much as it was in the US...

    It was a phone I considered getting.

    I have a Samsung Moment, love it. Haven't used others, so nothing to compare it to (besides Blackberry), but I love it.

    I've had a GW620 for a couple of weeks now, I'm pretty happy with it, the keyboard is really usable. As others are saying, if money is less important then other models might be preferable (it isn't the most powerful chip, and only runs Android 1.5 atm). But by ordering by phone (and therefore with some flexibility in cost) I got the phone free with a

    The best Android phone with a physical keyboard will be the Droid/Milestone. I think this is how it's going to be for a while. Does the Droid/Milestone have the best keyboard....no. However, overall as in size, screen, usability, customization, power, etc...Droid is tops. Of course, this is my opinion.
