Well, there's a high price to pay for good looking phones. There are better equipped phones out there at lower prices, but it's something like a Porsche Boxter and and EVOIX. This phone is just so sexy
it also has much faster 3.6mbps HSDPA instead of the V3x's 384kbps UMTS. i reckon the screen is a newer generation qvga model from sharp. and the nvidia goforce 4800 processor is fully active that allows for faster menu and game performance.
this phone will drop in price very quickly but i would choose it not over the V3x. it's also 5mm thinner with a more solid metal construction instead of v3x plastic.
i think most MOTO fan out there age range from 45 to 60 years old moto fone is look so boring.......
honestly...this phone is a complete screw up. it's more expensive than the V3x and has a worse camera. the only strong points are increased battery life and slim design compared to the v3x. is that worth the price difference? i dont think so.
@legion, i cannot understand people who are just to thick to read and understand a post. he was saying that going from a v3 with the 2mp cam back down to a 1.3, to ferther you post please do not flam other members or it will be done to you. also like to add the fact that they are boh v3 models kinda hints that they are from the same model line... thing about it... you can compare them tard. its like corasa sxi to a corsa.
@Jimi K: I cannot stand ignorant people commenting on mobiles without having the slightest idea of how to do it properly! Razr v3xx can only be compared with v3i as it is its updated version and NOT V3x!!!! Motorola razr maxx is the v3x update!
I thnk this is the best phone ive ever used... the quality is superb!!! i,m a person who hates bringin a lot of stuffs And i also hate huge mobile phones becausethey take too much space in my bag... but this phone is cool it,s gt all the features i wantedand small enough to fit in my pocket! it,s never a hustle when bringing this phone unlike huge phones that you always have to bring a pouch with you!!!!
@Richard Buchanan, rip the nokia guy for saying moto desings are crap... well i do agree nokia haven't been very inventive but ome on man everyphone since 2005 has basically been the same design! i honestly want to work for moto desin dept... mess around on photoshop for 5 min and hey! a new v3. also u were saying about HSPDPA... why have on it on such rubbish phone? honestly the web browser on here has nothing agains nokias... its wasted on something like this
lol at the idea of a nokia fanboy lecturing on design change. nokia hasn't changed their design in a decade. same basic layout as the cheap candybars. your claim to fame is 5mp cameras and N Series and symbian because the phones are so bloated.
now after 3 years they finally come with a thin phone and it's just as ugly and dull as the rest of their lineup.
you guys are hopeless. because the V3 design is old doesn't make it any less. it's classic, timeless. the RAZR is still one of the best designs on the earth because others haven't caught up. it's in demand and that is why motorola did this.
please name me some phones with 3.6mbps HSDPA that look better and are thinner than this. I DARE YOU!
MOTO does not any better design and keep copying the same old v3 over and over AGAIN...,,wake up...MOTO....and to MOTO fan out there......peace.....happy holiday....
if it ain't broke, don't fix it....
How can you guys knock a phone that was a break thru in design-technology when it first came out, they worked on getting the other little kinks out until its to the point that it is at. Can't tell me that people haven't gotten accustomed to motorola menu setup yet? i mean if you see the simbian menus, you've seen motorola's, plus you have the options to re-order your menu to your own liking, i find that the people who pick at these things just aren't accustomed to cell phones, sometimes its jsut over bearing to see the whining and complaining about unimportant things, i mean years ago you had a 8-bit 2-tone screen with 4 ringtones, if you wanted a camera on it you would have had to glue it to your polaroid... not to mention the size of one of the old dinosaurs to beside. Fact is if you think the design is so bad, stop take a minute, think of all the stuff you can do with your phone now, compared to 1996, THAT'S A HUGE LEAP. NOW STOP COMPLAINING!!!
plus... other than motorola razr series, nokia 7600 and and the N-gage series, who else has changed from the standard candy bar design for phones? and kept the same level or better of technology? look at the N-gage series, they weren't even phones with games, they are games with phones, and i think the hype over them died down way quicker than the razr hype which has evolved from calmshells to candybars, to slides...
just another boring MOTO............MOTO u will not always on my list....
true if this is such a bad design why does EVERY other manufacturer including the chinese rip off manufacturers try to copy it. maybe if you already have a v3x or v3i/t youre not getting such an upgrade save the vid call camera and the hspda ......dont rag moto for coming up with the better mousetrap
moto features can never compare with mercedes .. if two good branded phs have similar design, ppl will only go for better features phs.
The Design of V3, V3i and now V3xx maybe a few years old but just look around, all Mobile makers are trying to copy them. Samsung, VK, Dopod, LG, NEC all trying to be like the Razer. This phone is a legend. If you can afford to have a Mercedes why Buy a
Wow. 1.3 MP. Just wow. the v3xx is actually managing to be slightly WORSE than the V3x.
