All depends on your needs....
Good looking I would say. But the camera is rather poor, (for the diminutive size of the lens good though)
If your only need a camera-function that can take fair vga-resolution pictures of well-lid non-moving objects, this might do. But I'm sure you could find better!
Has anyone got problems with key pad, mine seems to be lifting and slightly raised.
Hey... I'm looking for a good-looking clamshell phone with a decent enough camera. Will the V3 be good enuff?
a v3 is twice the price of a k700i.your best bet would be a samsung e600, motorola v547/545, nokia 6020, 6610i or 3220
Hi. I need a new phone because i've recently spilt pepsi all over my sony ericsson k700i, and now its beyond repair. I can't afford a new k700i which is ashame cos it had everything i wanted. Im now considering getting a Motorola V3, it has a camera, bluetooth, mp3 player.. but my only worry is that it only has 5.5mb memory whereas my k700i had 41mb. Has anyone found that this is not enough memory for them or am i wrong?
the V3 is an excellent looking phone and very state of the art for the times, but as many ppl have stated on these post still resembles on the inside just the same as other phones...this is correct, bc the same company makes all types of phones, so you can't be mad that this phone is not the 'star wars edition', and to be forreal there are many other models out to buy, so why did you buy this one? Because it is different, and now that you have this phone you are different, so if you don't like your new V3, simply put, just buy a new one, and all you worries can be other worries when you get another phone that doesn't stand up to the so called hype...or, take the other persons advice, and sell it on ebay...the only problem i've found is not being able to keep the screen clean, and if you have big fingers the laser cut keys are sometimes difficult...that's all, makes all my call so far, but that's just so far. If a V3 is what you want, aquire one, but be aware, there are many new models to come...
Hi 2 all i have just bought a v3 i live in australia and so far i think it's great but reading the negative side from people has got me thinking....Is it really as good as the sale person said .....well to answer this ...YES YES YES for those who don't like it you should have reseched it better b4 you got it stop your crap get over it and get a new one ...for those who like the phone congratulations and ENJOY cause i know i will remember everyone people read this and it could make or break a person from getting the phone of their chose so be careful what you say really think b4 you say something negative ... Happy Using your V3 .....
V3 is unique thats why i purchased it after all how many people have you seen with it where you live.
i think of my v3 as more of a lincoln navigator than a merc maybech
The V3 is a damn cool PHONE ... if you want can-opener, screw-driver, tweezers, etc. go buy a swiss army knife!
this a forum for phone users to share their experiences and give opinions on the phone they own.
i am not saying the V3 is a bad phone, just that the user interfaces could be better (menus etc).
for somebody who may be wanting to purchase this phone then the information and opinions shared here could be invaluable and save the buyer parting with their hard earned (or not)cash on an unsuitable phone. if you have no complaints about your V3 then great, i am happy for you !
Those poeple who complained about the V3 being difficult to use or the manual being illogical, etc. must be seriously retarded coz I figured out how to use my V3 with just one quick browse of the manual ... maybe if they bothered to actually read...
Hey guys you are talking about the phone like it is a space shuttle. when you remember about 10 years ago a pc had a 100mb big harddisk and everybody was delighted with it. novadays the same people are talking crap about a mobile phone with 5mb. i think it is enough for a mobile phone. damn, it is only a phone. when you guys need more space then buy a pda or stop takling crap.
to the guy who compared the Mercedes Maybach to the motorola V3 !!! HA... u nailed it there, spot on correct!
the Maybach is basically a stretched 1991 S-class,with a nice shiny new body and interior on it. but it is still a crappy old S-class underneath.
likewise the V3 is nice and shiny and modern to look at, but inside it seems to be the SAME OLD CRAP what Motorola use on all their phones !
poor memory, the menus arent easy to use, it is just not as intuative to use, as say Nokias are. the functions dont come naturally to you, you really have to stop and think about what buttons you are pressing. i shall go back to my Nokia 6230 methinks!
and before anyone has a go at me, i have owned x2 Mororola V3 now and have been really nice and shiny and good to pose with,but only because it looks different.unfortunately when you peel away the glossy exterior, you are left witha very average phone.
guess what i am selling on e-bay now ???!!!
