Bought one and truly impressed with it. Found the design really attractive (compared with the mostly stereo-typical smart phones - all of which look more alike than otherwise).
Had no problems with the interface or usage (practically). I would recommend this over most of the others out there (the Samsung lot and the HTCs).
Looking forward to getting those docks - as its yet not launched in this part of the world.
I would recommend this phone in a heart-beat to anyone.
I do wish there was more internal storage, though I'm not complaining as there is actually a provision for memory card expansion.
Overall I'd give this phone a 8 out of 10 (maybe 8.8).
Just a quick question: Does this phone have proxy settings ?
I have a MB-502 and I can't use the internet where I work because it doesn't have proxy settings ! This phone uses Android 2.1.. Does any one know if there's an App to enable these settings ?
any one face a problem with some applications like viber and skype while calling you could hear the other very well but he did not hear you and if that happened what is the solution ?
Dont know about what GSMArena got as bundled headphones(ROKR it is written), but the scandinavian package that I bought, has the worst headphones thrown in.... it is absolutely terrible...had to buy a new pair for 60 Euros.. :-(
Why dont they make the package consistent?

will be nice to see what the next gen iphone will do as well.
Anonymous, 01 Dec 2011Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it's a terrible phone, just needs a few minor tweeks that is all.Yes, hopefully, ICS update which should be coming in the next couple of months can really utilise the dual core thing.. as far as I know the gingerbread platform is not really useful for a dual core.
But even after that, it is quite fast and the looks are killing, i think even more than the fabled iPhone.....

1. The camera is really good at macro shots.. i got the lock-on at 1.5 cms, which I think is quite outstanding.. I think GSMArena must update on the macro shot capabilities of the unit here..
2. The processor, though running at 1.2Ghz,, barely touches 1 Ghz, and even so, normally only for a very small time.. normally is works at 300 Mhz for around 90% of the times.
3. The power consumption in standby mode is only 2 mA, though, it gets quite high sometimes..
4. There is a problem with the Wifi reception. The connection does hang sometimes and you need to switch-off/switch-on the wifi, to make it work again.
5. Signal reception is good, but not that of Nokia's.... though the voice clarity is pretty good.
Others will be updated accordingly later...
Using this phone since last 20 days it awesome as I have been a gizmo freek and have used around 20 Android phones Of LG Samsung as well as Motorola.
Found that phone awesome in all aspects.
Lots of new things first ever in Phone...
I have bought this recently.......... and boy oh boy do i like this phone.............. its simply awesome
@Vyga: this point here is it have a dock, and also a HDMI output so we have to make sure if it have capability to handle 1080p

as a N8 owner though, it does feel fragile sometimes, but thinking about the Kevlar i dont think it would be..
it is surely a beauty to behold... and firefox doesn't really work. Maybe the best mobile browser is the Opera today....though the default browser is pretty damn good...
Sounds like a good build right?
Well it's not, I've got my hands on this phone and it still feels flimsy. Firefox crashes, as we all know mozilla is pretty crappy on any mobile devices.
It's a nice step up, but the mobile companies need to stop pushing usless crap into the phone.
Good job on Motorola though!
I have SGS2 and sure there is only minute changes that moto boasts are the screen and width of the phone. The unable to takeout the battery unimpressed me. To whom ever design and approve the product was not really analyzing thoroughly, because most people who got this or getting this device would by a case protector, which would make that phone thicker by the way, therefore there is no point of creating a sealed behind. Very disappointing behind. lol ;p
Vyga, 30 Nov 2011 what is the point of full HD video in phone? screen is 960x540, it just cant display 1920x108... moreUmm.. that's what the microHDMI port is there, so you can hook it up to a big, high-res screen.
I am buying one today or tomorrow.... was a huuuge fan of Moto and glad they are back...
what is the point of full HD video in phone? screen is 960x540, it just cant display 1920x1080 pixels, there will be no difference between 960x540 and 1920x1080 videos on this screen... i have sgs2 for 4 month and i only played 1080p video twice, just to check if it does play it in browser... that was all...
