I've just got this phone through an upgrade, I'm just debating whether i like it or not, the black casing is ok but it does get dirty easily. One of the main problems I'm having is using an mp3 as a ringtone,I downloaded one onto my phone from my computer, but it won't let me set it as a ringtone, am I doing something wrong/is there anyway to do this? Still geting used to the phone, I do like the look of the S700i though, might get that instead if I don't get used to this phone.
To unknown The v800 is free on contract + monthly bills and the v3 is £200 + monthly bills. I would hardly call the v3 inexpensive.
Why did my last post disappear? strange..
anyway mira thanks 4 clearing up that vga/mega pixel issue for us. In some cases vga can be better than mega pixel. all a mega pixel is is an enlarged photo, bigger photo = poorer quality
V3 wins - the end
its a moto adventure...
Maybe motokiller can shut his big ignorant mouth now.
Carol,I might not be able to tell you very soon cuz my friend isnt in the States now but when I could get touch with him i would
ask him about that so it would take a while.
For VGA and Mega Pixel issue, as my experiences, in some case and reason,
VGA could produce a better picture quality
than Mega pixel. I am not talking about V3
and V800 stuff but I am trying to say that it depends on a lot of things like a sensor of camera CCD or CMOS and stuff
Mega pixel means you can expect a picture size bigger than VGA(640 x 480) for sure but doesn't mean it would have to be better anyway. And regarding to V800, recording video and taking picture are not
so bad but not as good as tons of phones on the market now I belive what i am trying to say is, do not think that Mega Pixel phone will always better than VGA
but anyway,i still like my V800 and learning to make my own theme I hope anyone dont mind my opinion.
thanks mira for responding.. it would be nice if your friend sells it on ebay.. or something.. *carol waits patiently for mira's response*
V3 is going down to $500, pretty irrelevant saying v3 is an expensive phone when all other new phones are around $700-$800
If vga is better than megapixel why are phone companies producing and researching on megapixels? According to Pimpa, phone companies must be throwing money down the drain for no reason.
Thank you for supporting me unknown.
To motokiller: I talk about my v3 in mobiles forums because this is a mobile forum, wat else am i gonna talk about? my car? wise up just because you cant afford the superior v3 doesnt mean everyone else cant have one. I also have a mate who has an SE T610 and the cameras are practically identical (V800 & T610. SE are fooling everybody again saying that they have this fantastic 1.3 mega pixel camera but its merely an improved CIF T610 camera.And Yes i am on my second v3 because i obviously must have got v3 in the end of the line batch. But my replacement is absolutely fantastic. The phone shop offered me another phone as a replacement such as nokia's 7280, 7270, 7260 or megapixel 6670, Samsung's D500, SE's S700 or this crappy V800. I chose the v3 again with pride. The phone shops really do look after you when you buy an expensive phone. And really rapping your phone in tinfoil would be very stupid , its like something a child would do, but then again i am talking to jealous children who cannot afford a motorola v3. And we all know what children are like when they dont get what they want...
Calm down about the V3! V800, awful phone, mine broke within two days. The thin black bit of plastic on the back is NOT durable.
1.3 mega pixel camera on a phone is nothing to sing and dance about. I have tested it against a few other phone with a VGA camera on them, there really is no difference. The V800 has a good batterey life, typical SE, it is as functional as the K700i and has video streaming to boost. Problem is all of this is based on a very bad chasis. Don't drop it! Enjoy polishing it. Plus you have that very attractive Vodafone sticker on it! Nice. SE will bring out another phone in a few months that's a lot better than the V800, they have to, the V800 is a good phone in a bad case. If the V800 was an all metal case, a lot smaller and thinner, with better keys (ones you can touch with your fingers and not your nails), then you would have a very good phone. You would infact have the 3 gen version on the Moto V3!
Pimpa, will you get lost. I see u in every friggin forum talkin' about your "limited" V3. IN your eyes is wonderful , fine. Just keep it in you little V3 forum. Saying a 1.3 mp camera to a vga without testing it all is just pure stupidity. I beleive in your forum , you mentioned you are on your second V3 already with the first one dead already. How reliable and great is that? As others have mentioned, I rather wrap my phone in tin foil if I wanted aluminum. Not really the main point. The main point is we don't really care abotu your V3 because this is not a V3 forum!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Carol, it's true that you would have to get
a contrast along with the phone and honestlt, I have no idea how a friend of mine got it for me in contrast-free maybe I would ask him and let you know but he did get 3 or 4 cell phones from Vodafone Japan to my friends (maybe not officially i dont know) we are about to find out.
Dozlor marius, I can not say if the picture and video recording of V800 is better than Z1010 or not when it comes to that I never use Z1010 but I can tell you that if you expecting the best camera just ignore V800... the quality of it are worse than I thought it would be and seeing it more clearly when being compared with my Sharp GX30 but it's fine to me thou I dont use the cell phone taking a picture a lot anyway.
question.. i did find the vodaphone japan and you can get it for 200us.. but it has to come with a contract.. which i didn't think anyone mention in this forum.. so mira how did you get rid of the contract on vodaphone japan?
v800 has a funky camera and just icase you think it is not that good i would advise you to print them out. the reason they dont look too good on the screen is because s-e has used a screen that is not good enough for the camera.
Can someone please tell me, only from experience, if pictures and video recording with SE V 800 are much better from Z 1010, or just a little bit better, because I have un Z 1010 and I find the camera very poor, especially the video camera, verry blurry. Thanks
reading a few things about BIG PIMPA i have come to the conclusion his knowledge of the mobile industry is ltd. to knowing rubbish about rubbish phones, the moto v3 is pos. the worst design for a phone(apart from the nokia 7280)i have seen for ages. it is rubbish.
That is fine i will leave all V800 lovers in peace. I was just saying anyway that the v3 is better but i suppose that is only my opinion but as you would agree, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, Good luck Mira with your V800 i hope it behaves itself.
To v800 (person)
I do not think that my mobile phone is my girlfriend, this is stupid as i already have a beautiful girlfriend.
Now peace and goodwill to everyone and goodbye
tnavir, you mean you can't set a mp3 file
as ringtone? cuz I can do it in My Item menu.
