E398 has the same features with more memory..
Also k508i only has 12mb of shared memory and no card slot....E398 has up to 256mb (maybe 512mb).
And u can make the E398 a "real" MP3 player, and video player, something that k508i wont be
I'm sorry 4 u bird90.I live in a 3rd world country(Romania)and the e398 costs only 100USD.Good thing I don't live in Brazil!
Do you think a k508i is better?I can't decide which one to buy!
mail me @ email@example.com
VIDEO RECORDING / CAPTURE now possible with E398. go to howard forums. Its now called i398 after flash flex with E790. also got itunes. be wary though, if inexperienced , could kill you phone.
I had a razor before, in comparison by far the e398 is way better in general... so far so good... my suggestion, get this phone...
This is one of the coolest phone made by Motorola,in specialy that stereo mp3.Keep up the good work Motorola!
Well, E1000 is older than E398 (4-5 month older), but E1000 is a Smartphone, E398 isnt. E1000 isnt available in Brazil, only in the "black-market", also u wont gonna use all of phone features, cause there isnt 3G in Brazil yet (ups, forgot, there is now 3G -Vivo is lauching 3G, but dunno how that cel will workout in Vivo, cause its cdma, not gsm)
Maybe this will help
Well Im about to buy this phone, I just wondering is e1000 much better than e398? I can buy e1000 for about U$ 100 more than Ill pay on the e398.
DAM IT in brazil phones are so expensive, e398 is about U$ 400(400 us dollars) :(
c ya ppl
I bought the phone just 2 days ago from Asansol, West Bengal, India for Rs.9950 and believe me I just fall in love with it. As many of you I also hesitated a little-bit about choosing my phone. I am confused about 3 models Nokia 6600, SE K700i and this one. After reading a host of reviews and specifications I decided to buy this one. Many of my friends told me not to buy any Motorola models. Now I think they simply do not know about this great phone. The reason behind this is lack of advertisement from the company. On the net I saw the picture qualities and display of K700i is better than E398. But when I compared both phones side by side I saw these qualities of E398 is far better than K700i. Believe me. Also the zoom quality, fastness and stereophonic handsfree sound quality of E398 is better than K700i. I discard the N 6600 because of mono mp3 player, camera quality and a little-bit odd shape. Many reviewers write about so many problems with this phone. But I face nothing. This is a really great phone with soooooooo many features. I think the software problem is corrected by the company in recent models. So there’s no reason for not to buy this phone. Simply go and get it if you like the cool features. You also get data cable, stereo headset and some cool softwares with it.
this is the best phone i've ever had, nice display, sound and features. No problem with 256mb card. Just need to know how to upload java games by simply copy and paste on windows explorer when connected by usb.
E398 is a good phone, for the selling price, i think it is worth it, but if you are looking for features, among the 4 choices, e398, e1000, k700 or nokia 6230 e1000 provides more feature, including a higher pixels for camera, nokia 6230 is a good phone also, K700 on the other is also a good phone, but it doesnt have memory card, right now, for me if you have enough money to buy motorola e1000, just wait for SE k750, just add few more bucks, but you will get so much more in terms of phone features... or if you want 02 xda2 mini, God Bless

Anyone using E398 with a 256mb memory?? Does it noticeably slow down the phone??
Hey Anonymous! the K700 is far superior than this? HE HE that must be the joke of the century!!
No, the phone is good. But it seems to be fragible, so don't be stupid with it. :)
My friends and I bought 3 phones e398. In 2 months, everything is ok, just one little problem found in one of these phones: a small screen pixel is always red, creating a small red point in the middle of the screen. It's boring, but this frind of mine is wating a new screen provided by the technical assistence yet.
This phone isnt really that good. It has many bugs and cannot even be compared to the k700 which is far superior. Do not waste your money on this piece of junk for it is a waste of money
