BTW, how much do "music phones" usually start? Less than US$240?
i had a unique experience... i used the rokr headset for past 4 days and every day minimum i hear 4 hours of non stop music in full volume... to my suprise battery was drained to zero only after two and halfdays.... but with other headsets--Creative EP630 it came only one and half days... COOL na... EM 30 ROKR really ROCKS..

I agree with Ajoy that the specs could have been better.
The phone might be good, but is not at all a good value for money...
Its popular rival has offerings with comparable specs starting at half its price.
Motorola culd have given sm more specifications in a above 8000 Rs phone......Virtually there is not much difference in it than the SLVR series but only extra features are:- equaliser and bass boost(which most users hv no idea, hw 2 operate??), Morphing keypad,and a audio output jack.
The cost wuld have been justified if either it had greater than 2 Mpix or it was accompanied with a flash( A basic feature provided by NOKIA's Rs7500-Rs8000 phones!)
Overall d phone's cool new look and music features along wid d innovative morphing keypad are the only plus pts. !!

For Look, I shall give 8/10; For Shape & screen, I shall give 5/10 as the set is wider in shape & due to horizontal screen, it looks a bit smaller, A2DP is not working properly, occassional 1 or 2 seconds chopping is there, in 1 minute duration, I got maximum 12 choppings. Menu is a bit sluggish, 4-5 seconds delay is there. Motorola may have invented mobile phone, but there menu pattern is of out dated. No, improvements in nearly last 8 years. Broadcast message you can't see on your screen, Operator logo you can't display on your screen. Bass-Boost function is useless. On good & costly headset you can have good bass feeling. Except look & little music, it doesn't have any great feature. The crystal talk feature- I didn't find any difference between motorola & other make phones. That's all my dear.
Bought this phone on the weekend. Very satisified with the sound quality and ease of use. Nice camera too. At just 8000 Rs. in India, it is value for money. Definitely recommend it.

The phone has all the things that I need (talk, text and decent amount of storage. Its offered with a 1GB card for Rs. 7990/-)
But what is holding me back from buying it is the audio quality and volume when it plays music.
I listened to it in a store when it was being demo'ed to someone and to be honest, it was not impressive. But the store was really noisy and i could not come to a conclusion.
After reading thru the opinions and feedback, it seems like the sound quality is not up to the expectation of many (the max volume is inadequate, volume drops when equalizer is on, and the bass boost having no effect)
I'm not interested in thumping bass or movie hall sound effects, i just need clarity and minimum distortion..
Does the phone deliver this ?
this rokr series has the best sound same as E8. built in media player 11 and it is linux phone.
bass boost is best with bigger headphone or connect directly to hifi becoz of deep bass (some say LFE). that why if your headphone is small or cheap, you will hear some volume decrease or cannot hear at all the improvement after activate bass boost feature.
