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
Ah! Forgot something! e398 can support t-flash cards up to 512mb?
Audio is good but I have ptobelems with this phone, after several downloads, the camera doesn't work anymore. It says "busy try again later" and the bluetooth shuts off by itself. Can anyone help me with this.
Well, Im planning to buy a e398.....but b4, I wanna ask to you which one is better: e398, e1000, k700 or nokia 6230 (not the i version....we dont have it in Brazil), or maybe moto's v8 (if someday releases)? Also, the e398 doesnt have no UI bugs, right?
Hi, For some reason, when I get SMS from one person, my phone has no allerts. I have tried deleted that person from my phone book, changing that person's contact on the phone, putting that person in a group, out of a group...etc....It still won't have any sound/vibration. I don't know why, because the phone works fine if other people SMS me. Does anyone else have this problem? Thanks!
yes it has the speaker phone which lets you talk without holding the phone. and that feature in this is better than any other phone as you can turn on the speaker phone right after u dial even before the call is connected unlike in many other phones...
I'm thinking of buying the Motorola E398, but I need to know if it has has a built-in handsfree option, which allows you to receive a call without holding the handset to your ear. Can anyone confirm this.
Can somebody help me pls...
