If you want a mobile with a large screen, easy to use buttons, stylish looks and the majority of Tech features, this phone is for you.
If you want one with everything look elsewhere. JC.
The V3 is my friend and i resent any comments made my V3 crying when he was reading these articles.

You are right, the Vertu & V3 cannot compare in price & quality, they are in a totally different class.....BUT they are both PHONES !
I have both these phones, the Vertu is an excellent phone where as the V3 is very crappy even compare to my Samsung E700 !
I should loan you my Vertu for a day then you will know what you said are STUPID AND LAME ! You sound like a crown & make me laugh, you are a joke !!!
Do'H!! if you're compairing vertu with this phone you are s.t.u.p.i.d
this phone is on a different level[lower]than vertu. check the price dude. if you cant afford vertu, this phone will do. well this is better than most mobile phones
Hi folks! It is funny to read the ‘reviews’. It seems that majority of you seems to forget that the primary function of a mobile phone is to be ‘a telephone’. Please remember that something which is ‘good for everything’ is usually ‘good for nothing’. A mobile phone (never mind maker and model) is not a never will be a replacement for a decent digital camera, an Internet a access point (do you really want to surf Internet with a tiny display?) or a proper tool to listen to your collection of MP3?
Think twice before saying ‘crap’!!!
Motorola have to give out the V3 at oscar for advertising purpose ... because this phone is not selling well, as simple as that, don't be stupid & naive ! You do make all people laugh at you !
This V3 phone cannot compare with the Vertu.....there is no comparison !!!
The V3 is like a Swatch where as the Vertu is like a Rolex !!!

It looks like you missed my point...
It might be crap to you, but that does not mean that it is crap to everyone.
You like the K700 better, fine with me. But what has this really to do with this phone.
Absurd to compare the 'cameras'. The V3 got a lens with a radius of roughly 1mm. This is merely an attatched gimmick, just like a camera in a pen. Don't seriously expect it to be useful.
But besides what really got to do with the V3, the very idea of integrating phone and digital camera is obvious since both need a display, memory and battery, and is wanted as light and small as possible (within limits of course). But personally I don't believe you'll be likely to get a decent camera function in anything thinner than the pentax S series, where they even 'disassembles' the lens when it's contracted inside the housing. But this is not the forum for that kind of speculations.
The V3 is out? Is that why they're giving them out at the oscar awards???????? Spare me your crap. Oh, and after I read a review....I think the vertu phones are crap. They don't even look cool. You can go get a vertu, but I'm stick with my Moto. For most of us that have the V3, its because it has what we want, and that's just the basics along with an awesome lookin' phone. In what other model would you find that combo?
My uncle had this phone before when he knows the phone is too sucks ,dont have capability for good picture and don`t even mentioned about the awfull video recorder yet, he sold in less than a month.
For people who uses this phone as a "show off'... Please go get yourself a VERTU instead coz this piece of metal junk is just... JUNK lmao
This is a "FASHION" phone & it has been around for 5 LONG months. Fashion don't last ! This V3 is OUT !!!
Ok all, I owned a V3 for a while. I was one of the first peeps to get it from Cingular. I fell in love with it. It was a great freiend. Had everything I wanted in a phone. I switched from Cingular to T-mobile and gave the V3 to a friend who still had cingular, just so thier insurance could cover it. I chose the Samsung D-415 from T-mobile and hate it. Its nothing compared to my V3. I've already decided that when I have have enough money I'm gonna buy myself back a V3, an unlocked to for use with T-mobile. I won't have insurance for it, but I take damn good care of it anyway. Just the way the samsung operates drives me nuts. I can't wait to get my moto back. Moto IS awesome, period.
I had this phone for a while and i can say its not worth the money. As it has very limited memory and has no features. And all that talk about being satisfied with making and recieving calls and its antenna and clear reception is crap. most phones have great reception and u tend to forget that they have antenna's cuz its not like u actually see antenna's on phones that much anyway. Thank GOD i didnt buy it with my own money my Sony Ericsson K700 has 41MB memory and the camera takes great pics and can even record video in the dark cuz of its built in light.
The software language and request instructions have the portuguese language, the MiniUSB port is Wi-Fi or Wireless?
Could we *PLEASE* get rid of theese useless
"This phone is crap"
"This phone is fantastic"
Instead tell os WHAT you find fantastic and/or WHAT you find crappy! That would help others decide if the phone fits THEIR needs.
Hate to break the news to you pals, there ARE no universal-super-optimal-best-for-everybody phone!!! Different people/situations different wishes and needs. Just like cars!
Dont trash other people because they are not you. Grow up!
I'm a rather happy owner, because I only want the basic phone&sms functions in a thin clamshell. And yes this is just a very stupid clamshellphone.
I like primarily the thinness, the hardware, the good reception, sound quality, and the antenna placement of course. :-)
I primarily dislike the loussy software, and the slowness of reactions on keys pressed. Entering sms is rather bad, even worse than samsung X460, but better than S300 and T100.
I've tried the 'camera' which for me is a silly joke, but it's actually much better than expected.
Look at the size of the lens, what du you expect? Cinemascope picture quality??
Aim it at a non moving object with a fair amount of light, and you end up with a decent picture. Comparable to any £10 camera. Please do not compare it with what a 'real' camera can do.
Movies, forget it! The processor is so slow that you can't even take a picture through the window of a moving car or train without close by vertical objects getting very slanted.
What are you talking about? Who cares about the market share of Samsung or Motorola.
What we care is the product they sold us, and I found this V3 from Moto is really crap and I felt I got ripped off by Motorola !!
