Good: Very Stylish - Good Battery - No Nonsense
Comment: This is a very good phone. These days most of the new phones are all about touch screen. I owned a Google Android and have the Latest iPhone... but to be honest those phones are a more of a distraction for me.
This phone is no-nonsense. It has all the features which you actually need... bluetooth, camera, SMS/MMS and of course phones were made to make phone calls not waste time and money on apps. It has a decent quality 2MP camera, and comes with games.
The screen is bright and colourful, and lights up when the phone rings. iPhones etc have become boring and standard now, everyone has one these days. This phone is a real looker, it grabs peoples attention and doesn't look like a poser phone.
This is a very stylish model, not ugly like the Nokia and Samsung alternatives within the same price bracket. It has some weight to it and doesn't feel as though it was made out of cheap plastic like other phones. It has a nice feel to it and it is very affordable. I would have paid more for this, well worth it.
This is the real no-nonsense business class/personal phone. Highly recommended 5 out of 5.
Good: Gorgeous Design, solid, and practical, cheap
Bad: Basic set of features,
Comment: in a crowded market of phone smartphones, with touch-screen displays, Moto introduce something different, for those who like to feel different.
Looks like they done it again! Moto really knows how to create well designed products.
I had one on my hands, for the price tag, forget those cheap clamshell phones of Smasung or Nokia....ItÂ´s in a different league, of itÂ´s own.
ItÂ´s like driving a VW Beetle or a Mini, the classics, you own itÂ´s because you truly like, itÂ´s stylish and retro classic phone so you canÂ´t expect more than that!
Looks like Moto has revised the OS (altough) i haventÂ´t tried out yet. Honestly i canÂ´t see any negative points, perhaps a basic camera( or itÂ´s low internal memory. But like i said earlier, itÂ´s well targeted,itÂ´s a basic phone so the ones who intend to buy it, will be those who donÂ´t wanÂ´t to spend a fortune or those who likeÂ´s to have classics (to feel special)!
Comment: A good from in the not much technology section of the mobile phones. The attractive looks and good design makes the phone very tempting.
Comment: The regular series phone with no new technology, suitable for not so tech friendly people. The looks and design are awesome which makes the phone very stylist. The hidden dot matrix screen makes the phone more user friendly as the text and missed calls can be known by that. Over all a must buy for style and simplicity.
Good: Love clam-shell phones.
Bad: No Android (duh!). Love Android
Comment: but who cares? I bought my first Samsung flip phone (A300, I think) back in 2002 and I felt like Beverly Crusher every time I used it. It was glorious! I now own a HTC Desire which I adore more than than life itself but I miss my Crusher days. Seriously thinking of buying this just for the flippin' joy of... well... flipping. Now pass me the hypospray.
Comment: if it flashes every time you press a button does that mean in texting it will give you some sort of epileptic fit.
Comment: The Phone looks really smart. I will be definitely buying one!
