the phone is crap...it's made in prc = people's republic of china, the menu is awfull...don;t get me wrong, i wanted to buy one last week, had the money in the wallet - best thing is that i kept em there...bought a 6700 all black edition - way way better than this and at 195 euros it's a mean machine. so my opinion is not to buy this piece of equipment because : it's made in china = beautifull exterior, rotten interior, the menu is very very hard to use if u use a phone a lot in a day...
it's abt style, it's abt the looks, it's abt the first impression.... 4get the 3G, 4get the HSDPA, wheneva i pull this baby out TRAFFIC STOPS!!!!
Ah! Here's the full review of the Aura
The sound quality of Motorola's "Crystal Talk" techonology is really amazing. No competator even come close ... especially noticable in noisy surroundings.
what the hell? i would but a much better phone at less than half the price..

I've seen one dissasembled piece-by-piece.
The problem with the screen is that I hate those dust particles. Anyway, I talked with the official service provider in my country and they'll take care of it. :D
It's the only problem I have with my Aura.
Oh, and yes, I still love the blooming thing :))
I wanted a phone to look good... if I need sumthin' to cook for me, or to vacuum the house or whatever, come on, I'll get a made. ;)
Later edit: The only metal parts are the back cover, the one you take out to reach the battery - and the front sliding tongue. The back bottom is chromed plastic.

There are a... moreI have not experienced your problem but I managed to disassembly the phone (only the bottom part) and I had quite a view ;).
With this occasion I saw that in fact the back lens is plastic made, or plexi ... in no case crystal as I thought ... so pay attention that it scratches if U insist.
The screen lens I could not reach because I was afraid to force the disassembly. I had no dust issues here.
In my case I wanted to repair the scratched plastic around the keypad. I managed to do it (repaint) but it took me a few days to realize how to assembly back the rotating mechanism. Anyway the scratched part (see the photos I made few posts ago) is very easily removable - WITHOUT EVEN TRYING TO DISASSEMBLY the pone - is just sticked with a double layer adhesive band - but the Motorola Customer Care does no even try to offer any assistance. A few hints would have been very useful.
The conclusion is that the phone looks spectacular on the outside, but seeing its "interiors" you will discover that you paid a whole s*it of money for a different design, metal case, a beautiful screen, crystal sapphire lens and that's all. The rotating mechanism is far from what Motorola wants to induce from their marketing.
That's all folks!
2500usd in Turkey. ıt is a crazy price 4 me. And don't understand that its functions can be found in a reasonable ph in the market.
I've seen a few comments in here about the Moto Aura that it doesn't deserve the money... Yes, it's true only if you want to have a phone with a lot of apps. This phone wasn't made for all whistles and bells hi-tech specs. This is just a jewellery-phone.
Can someone, please, tell me if they experienced any lens problems with the AURA?
There are a few dust particles under my lens which can be seen when the screen is turned off... and that ruins the phone's aspect.
I posted a question on Motorola forum, but I haven't got an answer from there yet.
if u think its expensive, go and buy the the ugliest phone ever "XPERIA Pureness"
