Good: Great battery life and utterly reliable with good call quality!
Bad: Mine's Pink!
Comment: People get so caught up with features in mobile phones, and forget that it must do the basics well too!
A PEBL doesn't forget, the battery lasts me 7-9 days on average, the call quality is excellent and it is very robust (I've never had a freeze or crash) and despite being dropped on numerous equations it hardly shows a mark.
Texting is fast and easy and, best of all, you hardly know you're carrying it! The smooth rounded shape is very rewarding to hold and use.
Thanks Motorola, a phone that far outshines its "Features"!
Good: It looks cute
Bad: Text, phone book, you name it, too many clicks to use any of the features
Comment: I wish I had my Sony Erricsson back!
Good: The size, feel and lack of unnecessary gadgets
Bad: The quality of the camera for those who want to do more than just use mms
Comment: I love this phone. I switched to a PEBL from a RAZR (which I also loved, but I've always covetted a PEBL!) and the features are pretty much the same except my standard V3 RAZR didn't have video capture capabilities which are fun to use. It feels amazing in your hands and once you have got the knack, the sliding flip opening feature is fun. Easy to use menu I thought. Had previously read reviews saying the menu was hard to navigate and maybe my RAZR experience helped me out, but really it's very logical. I'm not one for many gadgets so the lack of MP3 player and limited memory didn't affect or bother me at all. As a phone it's awesome and I predict I will stick with it for a long time to come.
Good: Soft touch keypad and the stylish looks
Bad: The speaker and microphone. The alarm settings
Comment: The phone looks stylish, but if you can't use the phone to make calls then what's the point behind? It has a saving grace, in that it has a speakerphone which can be used when the speaker and microphone do not work.
