I don't think anyone will remember it, but I posted here on esato a while back asking advice about getting a smartphone, as I couldn't decide what to get. Well, long story short, I found a good deal on a N97 shortly after that and I took it, even if it meant betraying SE, since I really needed a good smartphone at the time. And lets just say it wasn't one of the smarter decisions I've made in my life. Sure, it served its purpose well, thanks to the good WiFi connection, the convenient qwerty, decent camera etc., but aside from that everything about it was so boring, and above all, really sluggish. Needless to say, I quickly started to regret switching from SE.

Well, I've learned my lesson, so to speak, and now it's all in the past, because fortunately I managed to sell it. Plus, things have changed, and I dont have the need for an all-conquering smartphone anymore. So now I'm trying to find a good enough successor to my good old trusty W810. Which is still performing flawlessly, mind you.
But I guess after all these years its time for an update, and here's where I need your help. What I'm looking for is basically an updated version of the W810, with the same strong points, such as good camera + good music capabilities. After a bit of research, I've narrowed it down to either the W902 or the newer Elm.
I guess the perfect match would be an Elm with the W902 looks, since the Elm is, according to reviews, better in the camera/video/sound quality department. Plus, I cant seem to find out if the W902 supports 16 GB cards. I guess the awesome looks of the W902 is really what keep me from going straight for the Elm, while the purple fringing I've seen in W902's photos puts me off quite a bit. And here I am going back and forth, trying to decide between them. And also: is the purple fringing really that bad in the W902 photos? If anybody here had the chance to play with both phones, and have a say on their advantages/weak points, it would be awesome.
