Pink phones: Best of the bunch

If you’re obsessed with the colour pink then we’re sure you’ll take a liking to at least one, if not all of these pink phones. We’ve rounded up ten of the latest pink phones available to buy right now. Make sure you check out our reviews of these phones before picking the perfect pink phone for you.

HTC Hero Pink – Free from £25 a month from Carphone Warehouse [pictured right]. The HTC Hero Pink features HTC’s rather fetching Sense UI, a 5-megapixel camera and nicely intergrates your Facebook and Gmail contacts into your address book. It’s an Android phone which means you can download and install a whole range of nice apps such as the Spotify and Amazon MP3 Store apps. HTC Hero is available in pink on Orange and Vodafone contracts exclusively from the Carphone Warehouse. Link to deal.

LG Pop Pink – Coming soon to Orange from £90 + £10 top up [pictured left]. LG has already sold over a million units of the original silver LG Pop and we reckon that this figure could double when the pink edition hits the shelves. The LG Pop is one of the smallest touchscreen phones available and boasts an unfussy design with just one menu button on the front. Despite its size the screen is a comfortable 3-inches and manages to squeeze 8GB of internal memory and a 3-megapixel camera into its frame. Link to deal.

 

Sony Ericsson W995 Pink – Coming soon to Carphone Warehouse [pictured right]. We really like the Sony Ericsson W995’s music playing capabilities and pink fans will be overjoyed to hear that it will be available soon in their favourite hue. The sound quality is really something to shout about as is the reassuringly sturdy build and design. The same speakers which come with the standard black W995 are included here but come with a metallic pink finish. Similar to all of the top-end phones from Sony Ericsson’s Walkman range you get the SenseMe track selection interface in the media player. Link to deal.

 
Nokia X6 16GB Pink – Free from £25 a month from Mobiles.co.uk [pictured left]. The Nokia X6 16GB comes in a range of shades and colours, one of which is this white and pink combo. The Nokia X6 16GB features a 3.2 inch-capacitive touchscreen and the same camera set up (5-megapixel, LED flash, Carl Zeiss optics) which made the Nokia N95 such a hit. The 3.5mm audio jack and 16GB of memory means that the Nokia X6 can act as a dedicated music player as well as a stylish touch screen phone. Link to deal.

 


Blackberry Curve 8520 Violet – Free from £35 a month from e2Save [pictured right]
. For some there’s no substitue for a good Qwerty keyboard when it comes to typing out a lengthy email, and that’s where the Blackberry Curve 8520 delivers. The Blackberry Curve 8520 ditches the traditional trackball in favour of an optical trackpad, which makes for smoother scrolling. The Blackberry Curve 8520 also features three music keys and a 3.5mm headphone jack allowing you to use your own headphones. OK so the Curve 8520 is really more lilac than it is pink, but if you’re after a pink Blackberry for a modest price then this is as good as it gets. Link to deal.

Samsung Genio Touch Pink – £70 on pay as you go on Vodafone [pictured left]. Similar to the LG Pop, the Samsung Genio Touch is an inexpensive touchscreen which boils things down to the basics. It features a 2-megapixel camera and a 2.8-inch screen in a compact curved ergonomic shell. You can easily customise the home screen of your Genio Touch with widgets like you can on more advanced smart phones and change the colourful battery cover on the back for another one – but if pink is your thing then we don’t see why you’d want to. Link to deal.

 

 

Sony Ericsson Jalou Dolce & Gabbana – £380 unlocked and SIM-free from Play.com [pictured right]. The pink (sorry, ‘sparkling rose’) version of the Sony Ericsson Jalou bears the Dolce & Gabbana insignia. It’s a 3G phone which means you’ll be able to access the Internet and come with an email client you can send emails demanding that all the non-pink Smarties be removed from the rose quartz crystal bowls backstage. Link to deal.

  Samsung Blade Pink – Free from £15 a month on Vodafone [pictured left]. The Samsung Blade was initially only available in black but now it has revealed a softer side. This stylish 2.8-inch touchscreen phone takes its design cues from the Samsung Jet and Diva phones. It boasts a 3.2-megapixel camera with a dedicated camera key, a music player and dedicated music keys and HSDPA (3.5G) for fast browsing and email, but no Wi-Fi. Link to deal.

Sony Ericcson T715 Pink – Free from £15 a month on 3 [pictured right]. As well as being a neat pink slider, the the Sony Ericsson T715 comes with a pre-installed Twitter app when bought on 3 and it’s worth noting that tweeting on 3 is free until the end of March. There are also apps for Facebook, Google Maps and Skype. When bought on 3 you’ll be able to make use of free Skype-to-Skype calls on the pink Sony Ericsson T715. Link to deal.

Samsung Tocco Lite – Free from £25 a month from Mobiles.co.uk [pictured left]. Similar to the Genio Touch, the Tocco Lite is a very basic touchscreen phone. The Tocco Lite has a 3-inch display which features handwriting recognition and a 3-megapixel camera which features face detection. There’s no 3G or Wi-Fi so while it looks pretty in pink it’s not what you’d call a smart phone. Link to deal.
