Well specs-wise they're all roughly the same. The Flipout falls a class below the rest (320x240 screen, slower processor) so unless you need a QWERTY keyboard, you'll probably be better off eliminating it.

I would say the Orange San Francisco wins the day when it comes to bang for buck. There's so much phone on offer here for a sub-£80 phone. It's got a high-res screen and a massive community to help you update it beyond what Orange offers. The downside is it has a 3.2MP camera.

If you're willing to spend a little more, you get the Galaxy Ace or Wildfire S. The Galaxy Ace has a larger screen and as a consequence is a larger phone. The Galaxy Ace also has a better camera than the Wildfire S (despite having the same MP). The Galaxy Ace should also have a better battery life than the Wildfire S.

In the Wildfire S's defence, it is slightly cheaper, has a better camcorder and HTC Sense, which makes Android look yummy.

Overall, if you're on a tight budget it has to be the San Francisco. If you're willing to spend a little more, I suggest you find a store that'll let you have a play on both the other phones because it's a pretty close call (maybe the Galaxy Ace just edging out if you have the little bit extra to spend).

There is a deal for U8800, which might be quite good. No reviews yet as its brand new.
