I read your opinion on website where you left ur Email that really nice I appreciate it
First of all please read my feelings about my dream phone: I have seen the phone actually today because in India today it’s launch. But from last one month I search the web daily 2 hour for reading and research work to find the best and reasonable phone. Whatever I read on the web and in reviews about E398 I feel that that’s the phone for which I am looking for it has it all. whatever I thing in my mind about an ideal phone like : Bluetooth, good camera resolution, big display but small size it must come with cable, removable memory card, so you don’t need to buy extra bucks for anything else after phone everything goes write till I didn’t saw the actually phone in store when I press the photo shoot button on the left I was shocked to see that it’s display only 75% of screen area when we try to shoot and remaining 25% screen was taken by the adjustment circle and other useless OSD (on screen display) that really finished the charm of large screen phone and you are disappointed when you see actually screen exactly as those Nokia phone like 3200, 6610i, 6220, 6230 etc. when you compare the screen size of Motorola E398 with SE T610’s camera screen it’s a full screen on SE T610 when you click on shoot button while the Motorola is include everything but loose on two things compared to low price and lower feature phone SE T610 but very efficient in terms of design screen capture area when you shoot photo the design and excellent software are excellent it SE T610 have 32 or 64 MB removable memory support then I never think of Motorola
According to me PRO: 64 MB T flash card with Adaptor, USB Data Cable, Bluetooth
CONS: average look with as usual keypad design, you can use only 75% of screen area when you shoot (the most disappointment from Motorola that you can not use full screen when you shoot – some unnecessary OSD appear on the screen that cover your screen about 25%)
Please answer some of my questions about the E398 are:
(1) I heard it can only store 20 SMS messages. Doesn’t save the messages in the phone but in the SIM?
(2)Any idea if the video playback is smooth or jerky?
(3) Is the SMS speed leggy?
(4)How is the speed of this phone?
(5) Colors are black, white, blue and pink.
(6) Does it have a recorder? For ringtones or voice recorder (Dictaphone)?
(7) Is there any settings for enabling full screen capture when photo shoot?
(8) Are Nokia games runs with E398?
(9) Is Bluetooth is working ok with other phone like Nokia and SE?
Nokia 7700 was cancelled
Hello everone. i got this mobile yesterday. the sound quality is great, its player mp3 in a great quality, the photo quality is good the problem is if it taken with zoom. the battery is good. screen displey is good and its not very much visible in direct sunlight. this phone is totally gud for the buget phone. i always like NOKIA and iam still PLANNING TO GET 7700 can any one tell me when its come to UK MARKET ???
jj, sorry coz I couldnt help you. I only heard about from a friend.
Fye ... yes ...i know it 720 ++ (water fees) but i counldnt find any1 from them ... there is a limitation for purchase from
permanent staff can buy 2 ,
contact staf and ventor staff can buy 1.
so could you able to help me to get one ??
Overall, its a good phone with great capabilities.. cam clearity, display, MP3, stereo sound, and size... but still motorola need to improve on the processing speed (overall functions speed) Message still slow and i can realize some extra speed on typing messages rather than my prev. E365.. An added advantage for bluetooth with all the original cables and Motorola own software. Prev. the cable and the software provided with E365 is not released by Motorola (third party). I JUZ HAD OWN ONE AND IT REALLY WORKS WELL..
for Sathyan >>> because of symbian software, u can add mp3 player to Nokia6600 or any other 60 series phone
IF you know someone who works for Motorola, then MAYBE you can get it for RM720. In Malaysia its about RM1400.
