Dear All,

First of all I would suggest you, please don't purchase this mobile phone set 9@9r, if you wish to be satisfied with a good phone set. I am very upset with this phone, it made me dishearted. Now I am thinking why I bought this phone.

First, I am very much worried about its battery performance. They say about its extra long battery backup, its false. This so called Xenium battery cant go on two days fully, while I dont speak much with it.
Next, its head phone sound is very low, in low noise environment, its dificult to hear using headset. When I play song, its head set sound it very low, while I am on road, I hardly can hear the sound.
In it's specification it is stated that it can store 30 dialed calls, 30 receive calls, and 30 missed calls, I found it is false. It can store 20 calls.
I am very much shocked with its display, pictures on display can only be viewd vertically, not from any side.
Tamplates in message options can not be created.
Some other options are not acceptable from this costly, so called highly featured mobile phone set 9@9r.

Later I shall write more soon.

It's been 3 months i have with this phone, generally i'm impressed by it's battery life, especially being a XENIUM line phone.

For this 3 months, all the while i'm using the phone with BlueTooth turn on every single day, even if there's no data or calls transfer. Average calls made out per day, about 30mins, in calls received about 45mins. All these...i'm required to charge the phone 4 or 5 days once.

Features? My phone, sold here in Singapore do not support .wma files as it claims- as verified by the little piece of appendum came attached with the manual.
How about midi? You know what, i've been a Motorola user for a certain time. And my last 2 handsets are V3x and V6. Midi/Polyphonic files i sent to this phone via bluetooth cannot be played at all! So what do i do? I've tried using SONY ERICSSON to send the same files to this phone...IT READS AND PLAY MIRACULOUSLY!!!!!
I've no idea what happen to this phone...hehe...maybe a MOTO hater by itself.

One of the bad experience i had, was when i insert a 3G service sim card with protection lock, punched in the correct numbers, the PHILIPS locked...as well as the SIMcard. So i tried using another SIMcard without SIM protection...it works fine. Weird huh?

As for the formatting of the MicroSD to FAT, you'll definitely need to have card reader as well as the MicroSD adapter to do the job better. If you try to format the card via USB connection from the computer to the phone...time maybe an issue to you.

In my next posting, i shall put my focus more on the camera.
Actually i have made a few snaps, with this phone...but not too regularly focused with it's picture performance.

So see you guys around huh...!

Current score...3/5

whatever flaw this phone may have, the battery life compensates way way more. i love the batt life, superb. if all cellphones would have this kind of power, it'll be harder to choose which ones are the best.
