Th... moreNot really try to defend, though if you can find another phone with "both" a 2.2" and a 2.0" mons working at the same time with (noticiable) better battery life than V9X, then your point stands.
Otherwise, before you purchase your V9x, did you expect a shorter battery life due to the dual supersize mons?
Since you've a V9x, I bet you live in US. If so, I'd suggest you put a car charger and a USB cable in your office, so you can have power on this phone all the time.
PS. I'm using V9 (as V9x is not available in my country)
The v9x has the WORST battery life EVER - a phone is no good if you can't ever make a call. This thing barely gives you 1 hour of talk time, standy is less than 48 hours, I'm getting complaints from family & friends about crappy reception & dropped calls, and you have to keep the phone open to use the speakerphone, which is a pain. None of this was an issue w/ my trusty v551. Steer clear of this thing - huge disappointment!

I work for...but I don't get this great deal! I've to pay US$250 for my V9 (no x...) where I live.
For all you MOTO FANS.... If you a new V9x.. Go to Wal-Mart online phone store they are giving this phone ayay with a 2 year contract. Or do what I did add a line and you get one for just 99.99. How about that !!!!! Signed: D1dickie

This phone is great and all, but I still think the old RAZR looks better.

The V9 is my 3rd Motorola model (V3X, V6) - I'll never buy a Nokia again!
I going to buy this phone because it's slim, sleek and stylish unlike the nokia brick phones that doesn't even fit your pocket. Whooo!!! I love this phone!!!

I asked Moto how it works, it says after I press the v-call button, close the flip immediately and I can v-call through the external cam...
That's why I'm still using my good old V3maxx i-mode which offers a secondary cam for v-call.

i think this is a good phone for people who only really want to make phone calls and store images. The camera on it is barely B-grade. the images have a horrid contrast.
i know all this because i sell the phones and have just spent an hour playing with one to fully delve into it's fewatures so i can sell it's good points.
this v9 are latest generation system with fast OS
dont compare it with the old generation becoz of slow OS
if you say so, probably you are using the old.
the os is optimize for performance and feature
the best thing with this phone are touch screen on external screen with haptic technology
