    Hi all. I'm looking to buy a new phone and would like to get an android one but not sure which to go for. Dont want to spend alot of money so been looking at the more budget phones. The three I'm thinking about are the "Orange San Francisco", "Samsung Galaxy Europa" and "HTC Wildfire". Does anyone have any views or adice on any of these, or any other better budget phones I may have missed during my search. I'm temped by the Europa as it has by far the best battery in the specs and dont want to be running out all the time like alot of smart phones tend to do.
    Thanks for your help in Advance, Tom.

    Ohh also considering the "LG Optimus One P500". Seems so little to choose between all these phone, all very similar specs lol.

    Are you buying the phone outright or are you signing a contract? In either case, what is your budget?

    Buying one outright, I had a look at contracts but didnt want to sign up for the 24 months they all required. Also I can get a sim only contract for the phone for only

    I was going to buy the HTC Wildfire but they didn't had it for 2-3 weeks so I decided to buy the HTC Desire and I'm super happy, you should get that phone.

    Simba, the difference in price between the Wildfire and Desire is about 200+ bucks. I don't think partom can justify that.

    I would get the Wildfire personally, LG phones are horrible and I haven't heard anything good about the other ones. The only downside is the low pixel density screen (the resolution is too low for the screen size).

    I totally agree, and i dont really like the build quality of most lg phones. too plasticky. I have had a go on the san fransisco and its actually quite good, although the camera is poor. I would choose the wildfire. I currently own a milestone/droid which i love because of its solid build quality (i got it for

    Good choice! Wildfire is surely a good option for budget android phone.
