Hey, BIG THANKS for the reply, much appreciated. Here in South Africa, the RAZR2 has just been launched in the shape of the V8. Most the cellular companies do a second launch of old products here..its actually pathetic(good sales pitch I presume). Only thing about the V9 that I dont like is that its only got one camera(ie no video calling). I hope the battery on the V9 is better than that of the V3xx. Biggest thing now is to find an overseas co. that does ship products out to our part of the jungle. Actually do have a relative on holiday in the UK, maybe if its available there, she can soure one there. But hey dude, thanx once again for the feedback, and watch these pages, I might just ask for more opinions.
hi v3xx user...
just want to ask if this model can use memory card up to 1G?or it would cost a problem......
hi dude!:) if you would ask me what phone should you go for, of course, you are right at choosing Moto Razr-2 V9:) Coz this particular type of model, together with V8, is in fact the next or rather the 2nd generation of Razr Blade Technology Phones (latest)... There are lots of improvements on its features...
Because the V3xx, together with the V3, V3i, V3i-D&G, and V3x, is the first generation of Razr Phones...
Every phone from every brand has their own downsides & we can not prevent that,, even the "talk of the town" Nokia N95 has strong & weak points,,
Downside of V3xx includes battery life may shorten when always keep your hands on it like playing games, listening to music, watching videos, etc. (like other brands), secondly, this phone has no GPS, no voice recorder, no FM radio, you can only use a wireless bluetooth headset (you can't use wired ones), and among others... very minor and not so big deal... But ironically, the image & sound quality of Razr phones are better than others... to give you a tip: "More pixels does not literally mean better image quality"... there are some that offers 5MP resolution but i don't think they correctly define the meaning of resolution quality / clarity:) trust me:)
Here's a hint: Specific Razr phones may offer you 2megapixel (size) camera but the image quality & clarity is superb... it's like a digital cam footage.. see that..
For the final word, this phone (v3xx) is great... Then about your prospect phone, all i can say is that, you are right at choosing the Razr V9!:)
i want 2 buy 1 what is the best thing to buy such that moto is it good 2 buy it
Like your opinions ant article on phone care. Agree fully with you on this. Have been a nokia fan for years, but have decided to change due to Nokia's pathetic batteries. Love the Samsungs..very good specs. So whats your opinion on the V3xx? Any downsides to this phone? Planning on getting one from the UK, coz it aint available here in South Africa. Another option is the RAZR2 V9. Would like your opinion on this
i found the image on display make the face
thin when upside (normal shoot)
then when you make it side shoot
then the face become bigger..
first i considered it as 'error' by manufacturer..then coz already bought
i considered it as advantage..
i have a choice to make picture look
like (cute/ comel) or (matured/matang)
and because i love its speed perfomance
(nokia/sony/samsung comfirm lack on this compare to price)
it considered 3.5g even claim as 3g only
i like the phone since i update it using moto software updater its camera quality improved. 3 video calling is great front camera has good quality. i use as a computer modem. try maximize all the features of your phones dont buy high end phone when your only using texting or calling it.
Phone Care Guide, & other Practical Tips:
Hey guys, just a piece of advice: "Any type of phone whether it be moto, ericsson, or a nokia..if you don't take good care of it..it won't last longer.." A lot of us become so excited when we first got our brandnew phone, we tend to save photos, wallpapers, sounds, and videos, etc. to the maximum extent of its memory..without putting into consideration the consequences.. Yeah, let me just share to you guys that im a self confest avid fanatic of great mobilephones.. when coloredphones were first brought in into the market i was amazed by their capabilities, that time then the famous nokia 7650 (slide up) was at its peak, i bought my phone at 25thousand pesos wayback then, im really excited, i thought that its a great phones so i kinda save everything, & anything without considering what might happen... then few years later it became an old model.. and so i bought a sonyericsson P910i and that time the price was at 42thousand pesos... and then years gone by i just notice one thing in common with these mobilephones...no matter how big the memory or how great your phone is if you dont take good care of them they wont last... i saved as many files i can to it... knowing that its great...but in the end you will notice that they just "hang" or simply "lag" or whatever you call it! So, if you are considering a phone for yourself, only save those files that you can use on your daily habit... for best results, to keep you from system lags, hangs, on-off phenomenon, and etc. only consume the 20 to 50% of your internal memory then the rest save them to your phone's external memory card.. then back up excess files to your PC... view, listen to your files using a PC.. or if you want always use your external MMC, just use the internal memory whenever necessary or as needed.. Another problem is the "External MMC Fever", try to consult your phones users manual first before considering to buy a mem card.. coz we all love to listen to hundreds or even a thousand of (compressed) music, but do you consider first your battery life? think of it..you can not play all the stored music in 3 - 4hrs of battery..as i said..choose only these sounds that you play most, your favorites, that are fitted for a 3 - 4hrs of battery life. by the way, even you got a huge external storage it could also cause system lagging, hanging when you make it FULL! Treat your mobilephones like you'll never be able to have one again! hahaha... So, i hope you appreciate my little discussion about phones..
NOTE: At the present, i got this Moto Razr V3x and i can say that its great, along with the line-up of 2megapixel cameraphones, let me say that this one is has the BEST picture quality / clarity, precision / accuracy among the rest..
don't forget to follow my tips above, you'll benefit from it...thanks for your time, reading it...
For your Infos:
I read the earlier comments and it seems a lot to be explained..about the model, Moto Razor Blade Technology, we have four (4) specific models at the present:
1) Moto Razr V3 (so slim, 1.3mp cam, no mem card slot, not 3G)
2) Moto Razr V3i (so slim, appearance same as the V3, 1.3mp, bu this time it has an external mem card slot, not 3G)
- this phone also has a subclass the elegant model which is the V3i D&G (Dolce & Gabana)
3) Moto Razr V3x (a bit bulkier than the above model, 2mp camera w/ LED for night shots, the screen is brighter with 262k colors, a 3G phone / dual cam, expandable external mem card, WCDMA 2100, A2DP Bluetooth)
4) Moto Razr V3xx (slimmer than V3x, there's a lot of enhanced features, a 2mp cam / 3G, expandable mem card, 262k color screen, HSDPA, etc.)
- this one is the latest among the first generation of Razor Blade phones..
- for details, you may browse this site to see the second generation of Razor Blades...The Razr2... i.e. Razr V8 & Razr V9...
NOTE: Pls. read my next discussion about "Phone Care"...etc..
Whats the picyure quality like...1.3Mpix seems so low. Otherwise its seems like a nice phone.
just wanted to ask if you can organize messages to folders in this phone? and is there a send to list function? thanks!
This is the V3xx, not just the V3 it supports it all... MP3's AAC(+), has a high resolution screen 240x320, supports mobileTV and mobileRadio, supports external microSD, fullscreen playback, etc etc... Believe me, I had the old RAZR, this is night and day compared to that, the only thing that's the same is the shape. And it's Bluetooth 2.0 capable with an A2DP processor (for stereo playback via Bluetooth; and stereo downsample to mono devices, which was a shortcoming for it's predecessors). It also has a MusicID capability (like Verizon's music identifier)... Bottom line: Many many new improvements!
Yea it has all that stuff and it works a lot faster than the old razr. besides the batterlife because of the 3g network, it's an awesome phone totally worth the buy
Hey, abc. yes, you can. just buy a micro sd card, pretty cheap, then plug cellphone or card into computer and you're ready to go!
any advice welcome, Want to get a moto cus they look cool for me anyways!
But listen whats the capability for playing vids or music movies? any or none? If its possible whats the biggest memory card for this phone i have seen ads for up to 4GBs is this true can you really use this?
I want to buy this phone, but I want to ask if it have mp3, if it can use memory card, take photo`s, calculator, alarm...
Please tell me! cuz I`m going to buy it tomorrow! PLEASE AND THANK YOU VERY MUCH! :)
