well how about the features of the two phones? which one's features are better?
(ps. drjim thx for ur answer)
The samsung is a nice phone, nothing wrong with it at all really. Decision for you is whether you want 3g and like the overall package. Personally, I find the samsung very plasticky and a bit toy-like. The razr maxx feels like a chunk of nicely sculpted metal with a rubberised finish. Men tend to like the maxx more than women. You may like the samsung more if you're a lady, it is a bit smaller in the hand.
This phone runs UMTS at 850Mhz, 2100Mhz and also 1900Mhz (a US freq only I think).
I can assure you that the V6 maxx runs class 6 HSDPA over UMTS at the 850Mhz frequency. This is the network we have in Australia that this phone is available on.
I think motorola is really good and the HSDPA functionality of this phone is outstanding, one user said that the motorola handsets have the most comebacks, well i also work at a phone shop and found that Nokia Handsets have the most comebacks in particular the Nokia N70...now theres a crap phone, especially when the public raved about this phone only to be dissapointed.
I really want to purchase this phone and I have a couple of questions to current owners:
How is the HSDPA coverage where you are if you are in the US? I heard that it only uses the 3G 2100 band which is the only one not available in our wonderful country.
How is the camera/video camera? I am not expecting miracles or anything but as long as it's nice enough for clear picture messaging/nice short stints of viewable video then it's fine.
Can you see videos/pictures in landscape mode? I heard somewhere you can and I plan to put some videos on my microSD card.
Thanks in advance!!! =oD
I sold my V3x already after 3 weeks of using it. I love the V3x but I just want the HSDPA feature of this phone. I'm just waiting for the arrival of this unit here in the Phils. Can't wait to have this phone.
Can someone please take some photos with maxx camera?
In different conditions like inside, outside etc.
I'm in a hurry, going to order the phone tomorrow. But if the camera sucs I wont.
My old moto v620 has that so i'm verysupersure but I can't promise:)
moto is the best ever and forever.
nokia and so r crap with ugly designs
The u830 still are missing some features that I want for a phone so that can't be compared.
Motos are reliable especially v3 series. The only problem they have is their battery. You maybe didn't count the massive v3 out there compared to other phones. Many phones = more repairs that a mobilephone in a little scale.
Well, publicity is one thing to sell stuff, but moto is giving what people want, slim nice looking phones and thats why people buy them.
And yeah, the original v3 is stoneage.
OK, i have both the motorola v1050 and i just got the razr maxx recently. 1st, the motorola v1050's camera is CRAP. it can take pictures in the night, but it will be very dark and hard to see, even when the camera is in night mode. the v1050's light is useless too. with the razr maxx's camera, even though its 2mp, the picture quality is comparable to a phone like the samsung d900 and it also takes pictures clear and crisp, no matter how bright or dark it is. the razr maxx's flash is quite good for a phone.if you look at the razr maxx's flash closely, you can see that there are two lights integrated on it. the right light lights up when you turn the flash on. the left one acts as a camera flash, turning on only when the camera takes a photo.
the razr maxx's mp3 is also better than the v1050's. with the razr maxx, you can sort your songs into playlists, artists, albums, genres and composers, like sony erricson's walkman phones. with the v1050, you can only sort your songs into playlists. also, the razr maxx has an option where you can turn the bass boost and/or the spatial audio on or off. you can also store more songs with the razr maxx. it has 50 megs of built in memory, the v1050 only has 16.
the razr maxx also has the EDGE technology, HSDPA, WLAN, GPRS and all those other stuff that i havent mentioned, and all the v1050 has is GPRS.
in conclusion, the razr maxx smashes the v1050.
slimmest phone??? have u seen the lg u830??? the only reason motorola sold a lot of them coz it had a big publicity on tv and movies... i work in a phone shop and motorolas have biggest come backs for repairs... theyre so unreliable... they look good but its really getting old.... not bcoz they sold a lot means that theyre good they just have good advertising..
After a few days use I have grown to like this phone more and more. It will be a long, long time before I even think about upgrading and it would have to be something highly revolutionary in the market to make me think about that. Some people may not like the fact that it has a 2mp camera. As I have said before, I see a phone as a means of communicating not for boasting about the number of pixels. Those who choose a phone like this are likely to have a pretty decent spec camera anyway. I looked at a lot of phones before getting this. I waited a long time to get this and am very glad I did.
This phone has amazing features in a beautiful and robust package. It is pleasing to switch it on in the morning and put it in my jacket pocket. Motorola excel at giving their products that feel good factor missing from other phones.
If you have not used a motorola before then the menu system may seem a little tricky but it does not take long to get used to it. I happen to like the way they work, its a personal taste thing. Once you have got used to using one, all the functions can be accessed very quickly indeed. Much faster than a nokia despite their intuitive menu.
The pre loaded screen savers and wallpapers are very classy so you can personalise this phone with images that match its upmarket looks.
Many people have already asked me what kind of phone it is and where I got it. You're not likely to get that kind of reaction with many other phones.
Oh, by the way, as regards the glass on the outside - not one scratch yet. Plenty of finger prints though.
The phone's available and easily acquired on Telstra. Has been for a couple of months.
Primarily I need a practical phone that I can carry with me all day, one tha fits in my pocket, fast responseand ease of use. I already have a digital camera so I never thought of my mobile as a digicam. 2MP are more than enough for everyday use. I also got the Nokia N80, SE P990i, SE K800i and the list goes on. Extraordinary specificatios but completely unpractical. Especially n80's software is SO SLOW that it really gets on your nerves. Not to mention its brick size...as for the design part, the v3 is still considered as the most succesful design in mobile history, with many followers and awards. It all then depends on your needs and taste...nothing more than that
