    600+ won't get you an Iphone w/o contract, the cheapest Iphone starts from 748 from the apple store off contract...

    The Mobile Phones section is for member to show case their pictures taken with mobile phones and not for discussing what phone to purchase. Thread moved to KPT.

    Suggest you go hardware zone to read up.
    Should have more info there.

    Galaxy S I-9003 pretty decent for my usage.
    I've heard Samsung GPS not so good, but I don't use mine.

    If you need GPS for turn-by-turn navigation, probably a dedicated GPS device will be better...

    I use maps (using a Galaxy S) for directions and bus stops, but I wouldn't recommend it for navigation. Locking takes forever and gets lost easily (personally, for me). Although it's fun tracing your route when you do get a lock.

    The SGS GPS problem is resolved in Android 2.3.3. Mine now lock fast even without mobile network or wifi assist.

    I also noticed the improved locking. But I still wouldn't use it as a primary GPS device for tbt navigation. Might be just me though.

    Actually, my car battery already used up for a in car camera .... so cannot charge another device (GPS)

    The SGS GPS problem is not due to the hardware but firmware. Samsung Galaxy S series has excellent hardware. The GPS issue is definitely resolved in SGS II.

    Yes that's why hp gps is not suitable really for car use. Google Maps can have voice navigation though, it will be available on Google Maps Navigation soon, which is in beta testing now. See the links I pasted above.

    Btw here is a review of the Samsung Galaxy SII on Engadget, which will not fit your budget unless you're signing contract:

    After reading the review I'm damn tempted to upgrade my SGS.

    Hi all, currently I am using the iPhone GPS app from Sygic. So far so good, got voice point turn navigation. Used it before to drive up to Puchong and KL. There's a new version of the software with 3D routes and buildings.

    Yea Sygic is available on Android too... But once Google Maps Navigation is released there won't be any need using 3rd party paid navigation apps on the Android.
