The "1-Minute" Review
Successor to the i355, the Motorola i365 gets slimmed down but retains a construction-grade appearance. The i365 is an iDEN, candy bar phone, with a focus on ruggedness. In fact, it meets military specifications for humidity, dust, vibration, shock and rain.
Users who work outdoors will appreciate the durability the Motorola i365 possesses, and of course it’s reliability. (Earning a military spec rating is no small feat. Various build materials must be upgraded to achieve this rating. Cheap parts won’t cut it).
But perhaps the best and most important feature of the Motorola i365 is it’s Push-To-Talk ability. Users can push a single button and connect, walkie-talkie-style, to a coworker in just a moment. It’s that simple and that makes this phone very attractive.
The Motorola i365 also offers a full entry-level feature set that includes an alarm, calendar, email, 600 name phone book capacity, GPS, speakerphone, and more. Add in 5 hours of rated talk time, up to 140 hours of standby time, and you have a well-built workhorse backed by a quality name. Users can customize the phone a bit, load it with contacts, text, enter appointments in the calendar application, all done simply and with a solid, well-built device.
This “workhorse” tier of phones continue to be offered because there remains an enormous demand for them by hard working businesses who are interested in durability and performance, rather than clever operating systems or pretty widgets.
Hard working men and women will enjoy the power, freedom and reliability of the Motorola i365.
