airedale, 06 Jul 2010Is camera gud? Which one is better, Rokr E8 camera or EM30 camera? Sorry for my bad english.is the same. The only difference between E8 and Em30 is that the former has touch capabilities in the keyboard (not in screen).
This phone has some issues when you come to use it for a while, with incoming calls... it laggs a lot because of memory leaks, I dont recommend it.
if you want a cheap one, buy some sonyericson or samsung. If you want a good Motorola you will have to spend a lot more
i have been using it for almost 2 years now, since then i havn't had a complain, though its camera is not good in indoor but better outside, this phone suits me, i love it.
Are u can rewind when playing music with this phone just like E8? Sorry for my bad English
Is camera gud? Which one is better, Rokr E8 camera or EM30 camera? Sorry for my bad english.
I have this phone for almost 2 years, great phone, have a 8 gig card with it and it works fine. The phone gets a tad slower with the 8 gig card, but it is something which you can live with. Exceptional build quality, so solid in my hand, it has an aura of quality materials and makes you thing it cost much more than it really is.
It's a ROKR so music player and sound quality is awesome, works great with Bose bluetooth headset and is truely best phone in its class in this respect. Radio is also great, tuned in twenty stations and the sound is so loud a crystal clear!
All my freinds drool over the display, its just 2" 320*240, but the quality is exceptional. Every thing looks so vibrant and colorfull in it, not to mention videos.
I am completly satisfied for what i have paid for this phone. I highly recommend this phone as a must buy.
does it not come with a USB....find it difficult with uplaods and other stuffs
works well for me..audio is clear ..video is ok..although cam is not that well but its bearable ..cam just need enuf lights and shoot it well..
i'll award toe slowest phone in the world.. even for not supporting any application,freezing if any msgs or incoming call comes.
Carlo, 27 May 2010Yeah.. This is really good music phone for all rockers ..And this is my first phone .. that b... morei'll award worlds slowest phone . it hangs if any incoming call or msg comes.dosent supports any application.
What is latest software version for Motorola EM30 phone? I am using this handset last 1.5 years. Please reply soon from reliable source as I want to update my phone's software. Thanks,
Yeah.. This is really good music phone for all rockers ..And this is my first phone .. that brought of my mother...
i have both model of motorola em30 and e8 both of them is very good. you want style then bye moto rokkr.i love my both phone.that is a simple a stylish phone.
Motorola ROKR EM30 is the best mid-range music phone available in the market today. EM30 in fact, is a simplified version of mighty ROKR E8 with almost no differences between the two other than a few costly features taken out from the former. The luring combination of a relatively low price and the expensive materials and design which were inherited from the E8 model, an unmatched audio quality, touch buttons serving as player controls – here are the principal points that lured me to buy this handset.
The E8 model remains a rather expensive offer, that’s a fashion phone which will never be subject to serious price reduction. The design of EM30 can be basically described as a copy of the original E8 design, the materials, measurements and weight are the same and at the same time preserving the fashion statement. The handset has a very unusual shape – the thickness and length are quite normal, but the width is a bit too large. I don’t try to say the phone feels clumsy, but the 2 inch screen looks utterly disproportional, though this brings about no actual problems. The screen uses a landscape orientation, so the keyboard area is very spacious.
The assembly quality is truely exceptional. All the parts sit tight, there’s no slightest play between the details. The handset feels like a monolith. The casing frame and the side edges are painted silver. The surface coating sports a very high quality. The back panel uses metal as well, though treated with a soft-touch coating, which is very practical – the scratches and worn spots are kept away.
EM30 sports a 2 inch 320x240 TFT,262K colors screen, made by Sharp Corporation, Japan. The screen is supported with a mirror backing and the quality is amazingly high, it's the best of its class, the colors are maximally natural and vivid, brightness level is high.
The gadget comes with an only polyphonic speaker, but it has a really high quality and volume. It’s perfectly audible in any environment. EM30 features a Morphing keypad, and the dedicated player controls are placed between the rows of numerical buttons and are only rendered active in the corresponding mode.
The EM30 model runs on powerfull Freescale MXC275-30 platform, having a 532 MHz ARM11 processor & a 208 MHz StarCore SC140e Digital Sound Processor(DSP). The interface is based off Linux Java 7.1 and can indeed be named one of the best interface solutions currently available on the market.
It's not much of a secret that every music phone manufacturer does everything to outreach the competitors in the quality of audio. Now one has to know the difference between sound quality & volume. The ICEpower audio chips commonly found in Samsung mobile phones boosts sound volume which has no effect on the quality. Thus Samsung phones are evidently one of the loudest in the market and have a clear advantage over its oppostion.
Both Motorola & Nokia tends to put more emphasis in the idea that quality should prevail over volume. The utilazation of dedicated DSPs in Nokia & Motorola offers an unmatched quality of sound since DSP puts into action sophisticated algorithms & advanced audio codecs to improve the audio signal rather than making the sound louder. The DSP separates unwanted noise from the signal, and only then is passed to the amplifier.
When i bought this phone, being a phone critic compared it to three other music phones of the same price bracket.
1)Sony Ericsson W302->3.5 mm audio out/DSP: -/-
This phone has no advantages over EM30 at all – the materials, assembly, ergonomics, software platform, screen and audio quality are apparently inferior to what you get with an EM30. The only plus of W302 is the size, the model is a really miniature piece. But that’s not going to save W302 from an utter failure in the competition with EM30.
2)Nokia 5220 XpressMusic-> 3.5 mm audio out/DSP +/+ : This phone happens to be a stronger adversary. The choice between these EM30 & 5220 appears to be a hard one, the advantages of Motorola don’t look that impressive in this pit fight: a slightly better screen, the Linux-Java software platform, support for 4 GSM frequency band and a generally higher quality of communication including a better and louder speaker sound, but the battery life in player mode is shorter. As for the sound quality in particular, we really liked the very natural sound.
3)Samsung Beat M3510->3.5 mm audio out/DSP: +/+
The sound quality doesn’t look as great if compared to the competitor model by Nokia but maximum sound volume is high. The basses sound too muddy, intermixed with quantities of noise. The distortion rate is stably low, though.
Of late, Motorola have been through a time of trouble, but it didn’t stand in their way of tailoring really good products. Among the handful of worth mentioning handsets, EM30 is probably the most eye-catching, combining a powerful fashion impact and a high sound quality, all of this coming at an affordable price. At times, it lacks some sound volume, losing in this aspect to Nokia and even Samsung. The high quality of sound is provided by the hi-end hardware & DSP and a selection of advanced audio codecs. The Spatial Audio technology polishes the resulting signal to a state of perfection. If you are satisfied with the not too impressive sound volume, but the best SOUND QUALITY go for EM30.
