And SE Supporter....
I know what u mean - good quality clamshells like this is something that SE have missing in their portfolio - they really need to produce a good quality clam soon or they'll lose loyal customers (like yourself!) The Z520 is about the best clam they have and it just don't cut the mustard! Compared to this little baby the Z520 terrible.....
You'll see I already knew this and my post was actually a reply. It was SE supporter who was asking about the 3G cam, not me.
I quote STRIKER.
"does this phone have the 3G camera? i mean can it talk with video talk?"
When the phone is closed, it's like a camera for photos. When it's opened, the camera rotate and it becomes a camerato video talk.
So does this phone record Good quailty Video? How much would the 1gb memory sard cost?
thanx this may be the next phone i gonna buy haha :X tho not SE but gd :P
Yep. You can see the swivelling 3g videocall cam on the pics on the spine of the phone.
does this phone have the 3G camera? i mean can it talk with video talk?
damn! what a great job BQS
moto's V3x fan got mad and cannot accept that EF81 has smash V3x
there is no way to compare this beauty with that
this mobile have a flash on its camera? and when will this mobile be available to buy ?
guys, i have seen and felt this product and compared it to the v3. let me tell you that there is no comparison other than the flip!
this model has no chunky base, it has a full magnesium/aluminum casing, and is a 3g phone.
so stop comparing apples to oranges!
wait till you see the product, im sure youll be impressed
Can anyone let me know whether this phone will be released in Canada? Thank you!
if compare with the design wif MOTO, i prefer V3x
this phone design is like a steel box... SUX!!
I agree with BCB. Why argue about which phone is the 'original'. As long as it looks good that should be it.
Frankly, the V3 was a dissapointment. Mine kept crashing and I had to replace it. I found the firmware pretty slow generally. And in terms of looks - yeah it is nice, but why keep going on about it. Your beloved Motorola also seem to be running out of ideas (V3, V3x, V3i, PEBL) just churning out more and more flip phones with the same old features.
I now own a SE W800i and can say hands down it is the best of the big phones available in the UK at the moment. However, I had to pay a premium. I only hope that BenQ-Siemens do release in the UK and price their products fairly according to their reputation (they don't have much street cred really :-p)
will this fone be out in the UK on vodafone contract, and when?
I don't think its a copy of the Moto V3 at all. Apart from the basic flip phone and the slim body, the rest are pretty much different from the V3.
All Moto V3 series phones have that chunky thing below the keypad which I think it looks plain ugly. You see the same chunky part in the LG P7200 and Samsung SGH-Z510. With the EF81, no, you don't see it there. There are additional buttons beneath the external display, which with the Moto V3 series, you do not see it there.
There are many phones with similar looking keypads, not to mention P7200 is one of them too.
The slim profile body is just a trend, and definiately not a copy. The same trend goes with most other electronics devices. Why do mp3 players get smaller, but not bigger?
I don't hate the Moto, in fact I think the V3x is a great phone. I just think it is pointless to keep on arguing which phone is a copy of another or vice versa.
There will always be similar looking phones, but what really matters is how they perform when you use them. I am sure the functions, the UI, the feeling of the EF81 is different compared to the V3, and whether or not you will choose the BenQ-Siemens, the Moto, or another brand all depends on how what really suits you best.
It looks very simular LG P7200. I think it's Made in china product. wooooooo. Replica!!
Think you should get ur life and facts right cos it's obvious that you are oblivious to reality.
The phone looks, stinks and most definitely will feel like the V3.
What absurd statement did u make about the V3 screen?... mate please go check the facts.
What silly control button are u talking about?.. hope it's not the D-pad ur referring too cos helloooooooooooooo... look at the V3.
Again u mention the bottom of the V3... look @ the BenQ and u realise it is also there but differently shaped.
Talking about Samsung... u guys were born yesterday obviously. Motorola started the clamshell design with the Startac back in the day... came back and blew everyone away with the V66, V60 (first aluminium phone)and the rest of the V series i.e. Vdot that got everyone and their moms runnin 2 get one... then u get Samsung making phones copying the Motorola designs and stuff but aimed at kids with all sorts of bright colours and silly tones. Now u get these kids who only got their first phone 5 years ago talking bout Samsung was copied. Ya'll better jump on the internet and read the facts.. dont be fooled.
Look... no need to holla @ suckaz for imitations... feel free and jump on the band wagon.
All i know is it's a very good feeling to think that BenQ-Siemens and everyone who gets this phone will secretly feel kinda 2nd class knowing the Original is still handling biz and killing the imitators once they see the V3.
Ya'll betta recognize!
