Samsung or Sony Ericsson?

I’m itching for a new cellphone — I want to replace my rinky-dinky, super low-end Nokia phone (black and white display, no camera). I have two main criteria in mind: (1) slim, easy to lug around, can fit in my pocket without me looking like I have a soap bar inside my pants; and (2) it has a built-in camera that produces respectable enough images — especially so I can blog more images.

I researched on the web, then went to SM Megamall, looked around, and looked around, here are my top 2 phone choices:

1. Samsung SGH X820
2. Sony Ericsson K800i

Samsung SGH X820

Samsung SGH X820

Samsung SGH X820
Pro: At Php13,900 — much cheaper; slimmer, cool factor
Con: Smaller screen display; at 2 MP, less megapixel count; while slimmer, it is wider and longer

Sony Ericsson K800i

Sony Ericsson K800i

Sony Ericsson K800i
Pro: At Php21,900 — quite expensive. Most stores actually sell it at Php29,000.
Con: Better camera, bigger screen display

I have both used a Samsung and a Sony Ericsson for mobile phones before so I have no qualms using either. But for now, based on my previously stated criteria, it seems that the Sony Ericsson K800i would be better for me.
