Anonymous, 19 Dec 2008Is this phone better than the htc s710? Which one should i buy?You just can't compare HTC S710 aka Vox with any phones in that price segment if you are a serious business user. First and foremost it has a full qwerty keyboard, then it has wifi (yeah it doesn't have GPS, but then the first two are more important for a business user than GPS i suppose). But you can buy a GPS device and hook it up with the Vox. Plus think about the horde of apps available for Windows Mobile and you will get the hint ;).
Best of the A-series! Although motorola took 3 years to upgrade it. Still, the phone is packed with great new features. The main highlight is the AGPS & GPS transceiver. User friendly enough once u understand its application. Great accuracy too! And most of all its FREE!
The 3.2MP camera is great too. Superb auto-focus features. No more blurry images.
AS the phone is based on LINUX, do expect it to be slightly slower than other smartphones using the windows mobile platform. However this is compensated with the variety of applications that is bundled with the phone. eg, business card reader, talking dictionary ,real one player.
Overall, this is a must-buy phone for Motorola avid users! Support them guys!
Just bought the phone recently... A great all-rounder! Versatile yet sleek & stylish!
GPS & AGPS is stunning once u get the hang of it! Navigate the world like a local!
Touch screen is very responsive and vivid colours!
Only setback is the lack of WiFi technology.
Linux OS is great althouh a bit slow at times.
Batt life is superb!
Great phone Moto! Keep the touch-screens rolling in!
this is really a very good phone with a life time gps + agps is there in it & really with a good battery back up as werll as with good design, but gps is hard to understand.if u made eassy to understand it will be much better and battery back up is very low therefore customer not preffer this handset,
Anonymous, 09 Dec 2008man,they say UP TO 4 gb ;)So have you own any A1600? Did you ever put an 8GB card to prove it does not work with an 8GB card?
I still have my A1600 and you're more than welcome to put an 8GB card in there...and I'll bet with my A1600.
If A1600 doesn't support 8GB card, you can have my A1600. If A1600 supports 8GB card, then you pay me what's my A1600 worth in the 2nd hard market. (about US$180 in my place)
Want a deal?
Anonymous, 04 Dec 2008i hav almost decided to buy this model . But bit confused since it lacks wifi & 3G . Can anybo... moreGPS works like a charm, i'm from chennai and i can virtually see all the streets with names,its fully free,works even without a sim card and for 3G we dont have the support and so no need to bother bout that, lacks wifi but has other plentiful features like 3.2 mpx cam, stereo bluetooth,touch screen is great, call quality is awesome(maybe due to the crystaltalk tech), get this phone you wont be disappointed

i hav almost decided to buy this model . But bit confused since it lacks wifi & 3G . Can anybody comment on the applicability of these features in India.
And how good is the performance of GPS in india.
scsi_boy, 27 Nov 2008oh yes...forgot to mention that i inserted 8gb memory card and it works just fine. I don't kn... moreMoto has been "safe" when announcing the specs of its phones...i.e. in reality the phones can support memory card of double the size (except for most phones supporting 2GB, as anything above needs support of SDHC).
My good old A1000 said it supported 128k card, and I put a 256k card and ite worked fine. My old V3x said its supported 512k card, and I put a 1GB card it worked fine.
The possible reason is Moto can't gurantee the performance of the "double sized" memory cards. I.e. cards with higher capacity probably draws more RAM, power, and other things in the phone, which may not match with the phone's ultimate performance.
Back to A1600, is about time to say goodbye for my unit. As I just returned from Taipei I couldn't download the map as promised by Moto HK...where I bought the phone.
So I'm going back to my E6...
