I had this phone for a year but have now upgraded, my son is now using it and he LOVES it. I found it a bit bulky but mine never froze and the screen resolution was amazing. The battery life was adequate and the sound quality really good for playing music without headphones.
This phone is nice when it's brand new. However, the only major problem I see after one week of use is: there is a long delay in showing display from standby mode. it took 4 seconds to show screen. can anyone tell me why it is like that? it will be ok after i did a master reset, then after one week of usage, it starts to delay all over again.
I have had this phone for almost a year now. The first 2 months i had it, i thought it was the best phone ever as could watch films and football hightlights on it, but after that, it was a different story... Random reseting, reseting when saving a contact, freezing, unable to call some numbers..... The Z8 has proved to be the most frustrating i have ever bought, and would not recommend it to anyone! Not sure if it is Motorola or just this phone... But do not buy it!! Trust me.

Anonymous, 09 Jun 2008hey, i got the phone, and 2 days later the screen started jumping every once in a while, any1 ... moreI've had my Z8 for less than 12 months and apart from the usual random turning off, blank momochrome screens it finally died after re-charging you can get txts in and call but NO SCREEN......funny Vodafone are not supporting this phone anymore!!!
I can't play music from my phone's playlist, i keep getting a bad request response when i try i get the following reposne. "bad request".
Anybody who can help?
Ok right now I have the Motorola SLVR L9 its a really bad phone. But I was wondering on this the Z8 does it text as slow as the L9? And do I have to call T-Mobile to turn on my web setting or will this phone do it like the Z6?
i bought this phone a few years ago its very nice and i recomend it personaly its very close to me as it slides and bends towards me
I was going to buy this, until I read a whole heap of complaints. Since I just snapped my V3x in two, that phone was stupid too, until I got the keypad replaced and new firmware then it was the best phone ever, never turned off never got the white screen again. But I don't wanna risk it again, since it did take a while to fix it all. Stuff you moto sell your designs to sony or nokia, I like the looks they kick ass.
I just returned this Handset , because there are common problems , ringtones availability not so great , the main Issue ....the Menue is ONLY available in English , that I think is very poor . NO THANK YOU ! I would LOVE to have a SIEMENS again .
i was very unsatisfied with this particular device. there are better phones by motorola out there, the razr series for instance.
hey i was wonderin if, like all previous motorola phones, the Z8 changes its ring style to loud when charging...???
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Just got one, being on "clearance" for about USD300 here in HK, where everywhere else is still selling for around USD$383. Yes, my phone is from a chain phone shop with official warranty as "brand new".
Though I'm always too dump for any Smartphone, as I can't even make much customization on my Z8 at this moment.
