See that nice glossy surface? Get ANY scratches on it and your warentee is GONE.

See that nice glossy surface? Get ANY scratches on it and your warentee is GONE. There is, in effect, NO 1 yr warentee, as these "outer lens"s are cheaply made and will crack / scratch almost by themselves. If you have ANY problems with the phone it will NOT be repaired because you were too hard on the phone- you "abused" it. 1 scratch of any size = they wont fix any problem. Less

from Pricegrabber
Strengths: Small, Color is great. I like it Weaknesses: Same setting as previous V3. Nothing change in the design. Using experience: 30 Days I still like the Motorola V3 phone because it is small and thin. However, the price is still too high. If the price can drop, it will be good buy.

Using experience: 2 Months I'm on my 2nd RAZR and on both I only got 6-7 hours of standby and only 30 minuites of talk time. I have 2 other co-workers who have a RAZR and they are complaining of the same issue. One sold hers on ebay after a month of owning it and bought another brand. Less

V3X Razr

from Yahoo
Pro: Awsome looking phone, has cool features Con: My bateries out of box was dead, does not get good reception I love feel and look of phone, but it does not work great, it might be because I have prototype, but if Motorola made one for U.S. I would love that.

Strengths: Looks cool, slim, good screen size Weaknesses: Very LOW volume, Sound quality sucks, battery life very, very low. One ring tone for all your friends, speaker sounds distorted and crackles if "speaker phone" used. Using experience: 2 Months This is the worst cell phone I've ever had. You can barely hear if you're around any noise even at the loudest unless you use a ear piece. Battery life sucks. Has to be charged almost every night with less than 1hr daily talk time. One ring tone for all your friends. I'd never get another Motorola product even if it was free... there are too many good products out there. Less

It only doesn't have Wi-Fi and radio, the rest is just great. Less

Pro: get to know your local cell phone companies customer service reps real well Con: poor quality,battery quality very poor,easily overheats,crashes like a cheap computer Using experience: 7 months In the past 6 months my razar has been replaced by my cell provider at least 6 times. The screen flashes and none of the functions work,then you have to disconnect the battery to be able to shut the phone off. Most of the time it won't ever power back up,but on occaison you get lucky and the phone lasts a few more days. Less
