go over to smape.com (sorry, gsmarena) they just compared the sound quality of the mid-range music phones available in the market today. good news, Moto fans, the EM 30 won it over against Nokia's 5310 (i'm assuming 5310's sound quality is just the same as the new 5320). it appears that the EM 30 is a sound bargain among the mid-range handsets.
if you don't mind not having the Omega wheel, the internal memory (EM 30 makes up for it with the compatibility of higher expandable card), touch pad (EM 30 has mechanical keys; on a side note, some people hated the E8's touch pad), and only two modes available on ModeShift (EM 30 only has 2 modes-- numerical, and music player), GO FOR THE EM 30.
i think i know what i'm getting myself for Christmas (yeah, i know it's a long way to go, but i'm excited nonetheless) =)
keenen, 23 Sep 2008i have always thought that the rokr e8 have the edge over the em30, the latter being branded a... moreE8 has "internal" 2GB memory, which EM30 doesn't. That's the main difference other than the omega wheel.
tjangtjoet, 22 Sep 2008Very ugly phone I have ever seen..like a kite! this is not ugly this is ultimate
i have always thought that the rokr e8 have the edge over the em30, the latter being branded as poorman's e8, but seems that all the e8 features are the same as em30, the only difference is the navi wheel
I bought the Em30 yesterday and here is my opinion about the phone.
1) Sound quality from the speakers is simply awesome,...better than the more expensive phones from nokia and SE
2) The included headset could have been better.
3) The phone has USB charging feature which is really great
4) Display specifications on GSMarena are incorrect. It is actually 320X240, 256k colors and 2 inches. Overall the display is very good.
5) The phones UI is a bit on the slower side
6) Built quality is gud
7) The CrystalTalk technology is marvellous - I have not had better call reception in any other phone of any make . It is just awesome
8) Camera is OK OK. I am not a camera person. Given it is just 2MP, it perfroms OK types.
9) Battery Life is very good.
I hope this helps
