dmarvp, 10 Oct 2008I found yesterday that the album art is only supported on .mp3 files. Not on .m4a or .aac file... moreJust to share with you on my experience. I only sync via Motorola phone Tool, for contact, calendar, music, ringtones and etc.. Using the Phone Tool, I can actually direct where the song should go to, either Phone or Memory card and you can even create new folder to store different audios.
I've not synced directly via Windows Media Player so I won't be able to pin point the problem you were facing, hope the above helps.
I found yesterday that the album art is only supported on .mp3 files. Not on .m4a or .aac files. What a bummer.
NOW I HAVE ANOTHER PROBLEM :(
Media library is not refreshing songs on the phone memory. Has this happened to anyone? I transfer songs as I've been doing normally (Memory card mode) and then I tried with Media Sync mode also, but only some of them appear on the media library of the phone. If I put them on the MicroSd car I don't have that problem. :( :( :(
Pria, 08 Oct 2008I want to buy this particular phone. But can you plz tell me what is the difference between E6... moreE6 is Linux based full touch screen phone support up to 2GB external memory. E6 has 2.4" vertical display.
E8 is the successor of E2, which is only a "half smart" phone. No touch screen, but with the "scroll wheel". E8 supports up to 8GB external memory plus built-in 2GB memory, making it a total of 10GB memory. E8 has horizontal 2.0" display.
dmarvp, 09 Oct 2008what do I have to do for my e8 to show the album art ? I use .acc files generated on Itunes... morehaving the same problem, no art work appearing. showing on my windows media 11 player but no showing on phone. also not able to downsize music for message tones will not show up anything when i click on the album in the preview box, when in melody maker. no problems with transfering my photos. any help please.
what do I have to do for my e8 to show the album art ?
I use .acc files generated on Itunes, and I also use the Itunes id3 tag editor to add album art to my songs when it's needed. I have a new e8 since yesterday and for the love of everything I know I don't know why it doesn't display the album art !!!!!!
Also, sometimes ( it's happened once yesterday, and once today ), sometimes the player just stops and I can't reproduce any other song unleast I turn off and on my phone again. ( It gives me some error saying that the player is busy or something like that if I try to play another song )
Finally, how much does the battery lasts for you while playing music ( overall ). I find the duration of the battery quite a let down IMO. I had so many expectations for this phone :( !!
DJ, 08 Oct 2008Also, is there call recording and voice recording option in this phone???? Please be a nice Pi... moreHi DJ,
If you want to record calls all you need to do is to press and hold the green call button once you are on call. For voice recording go to multimedia then choose voice recording. :)
Also, is there call recording and voice recording option in this phone???? Please be a nice Pide Piper and guide me way through out the two choices..
E8 or K790i!!!!!!!
I want to buy this particular phone. But can you plz tell me what is the difference between E6 & E8?
i'm following with these opinion from the past one month now..and i'm dying to buy this phone...i'm using the L7 from the past 2 years and need a serious upgrade looking forward to buying this one.. but wanted to know whether u can install themes in E8 ..and how can u do it...
in most cases as i have tried some other brands...more or less, sound quality when listened to headsets are pretty good...
but you will feel the difference when you tested it with some amplifiers or with its built-in speakers...
N82 has stereo speakers, but it seems not so good when it was attached to amplifiers...well its not really a music phone...se walkman has a good piece of headsets and so good when listened using it, but poor really with built-in speakers...thoguh they might crush my neck to see this post...lol...but they will surely agree it is...coz my have se walkman and still he said it was beaten with my music phone(it is a not so popular branded phone)...tried w230 of motorola...and i say, it has great sound quality using headsets...
DJ, 07 Oct 2008Hey, how is the sound quality in headsets?? Is it poorer than SE Walkmans or better than the b... moreBeing a user myself, I found it better. But of course, the SE supporters will not agree with this. Why not test it out at the shops and decide for yourself since we all have different views & opinions.
Hey, how is the sound quality in headsets?? Is it poorer than SE Walkmans or better than the best?????? Please Help. I am dying to grab this skeptical piece of beauty.

to motorola: ty for that crystal talk techies...
to stu: no more assumptions or whatever, this is now a real thing....

I've tested myself, found the Crystal Talk much better but that's my view so if I can get more feedbacks from more people, then it's confirmation instead of opinion. We can then talk with conviction.
Stuart, 03 Oct 2008First of all many thanks for your support at ZN5's review site. I didn't want to post this rem... morety mate...lol...yeah really that anonymous guy must have been smoking if he would think we ganged him up...anyway, we are not related in any way, coz we are not all employed by motorola...but honestly i owned one motorola...the w230...that is the reason why im now craving for more on motorola...the fact that im not from a well-to-do family and im not earning yet ( im a student without school fees due to the scholarships that i have enrolled), makes me think a lot of times on what to buy...with my w230, i really have a nice experience with it...i own three phones for now, motorola w230, alcatel ot-s853 and nokia 2626...all of them having no scratches due to intensive pampering...
when i noticed e8, i really want it, but the high price hinders me from buying, thats why when i heard that em30 is less expensive, that is why im waiting...and should zn5 have good music, then ill settle for zn5, but i guess, em30 serves my budget...coz im planning to sell the other handset...hahaha just to make it to em30...goodluck stu and GOD BLESS you and your family
keenen, 03 Oct 2008my friend stu,
im sorry to tell you but im not yet an owner of the E8, coz im still waiting... moreFirst of all many thanks for your support at ZN5's review site. I didn't want to post this remarks there as I do not want "Anonymous" to feel we all "gang up" against him - the fact that we are not these type of people. Just not interested to start any vocabulary war there.
It's alright if you're not a Motorola user yet but your comments in V8, E8 and ZN5's site indicated you're a good & reasonable person. Honestly I've used Motorola's old Microtac 8700, Z3, V8, now E8 and I really came to like Motorola phones. Maybe I'm weird, my priorities in choosing a hand phone are its solid built, clear voice conversation, noise suppression technology (Crystal Talk), long battery life if possible and strong signal reception. I'm sure some other phone brands have part of what I'm looking for but I discovered that Motorola have most or even all that I'm looking for. Just yesterday my wife (K550i) called my daughter's phone (K750i) and I talked to her using K750i, while talking I suddenly realized that the sound that I'm so used to was gone, I mean the sound quality that I'm so used to when using my Motorola phone. My wife is so used to her SE K550i and when she hold my E8, she admitted the built quality is really solid. I spoke to someone in local Motorola's Technical division and he told me they used to conduct drop test on their phones so this could be the reason why they are built well. (don't be mistaken, if falls from a high place I'm sure it'll still break) The E8's really serving me well, I found that the more I use it, the more I like it and its slim factor is just nice for my pocket. It's good that you wait for a few models to test before buying one so that you can choose the one you really like and not regret about it later. Let us all know which one you choose and you feedback on it after use.
