manu, 19 Jun 2008how is the sound quality through speaker,is it loud like N81? Please tel ASAP.it sounds very good music mp3 ringtones
one of the best fone
sound is good in out put
if u compare the sound quality in earphone then its one of the monster
its not like samsung cheap and irritating sound quality
I've had mine for two weeks now and absolutley love it. The key feed back is different and scroll pad is touchy. The picture quality is so so but I didn't really buy it because of that feature. Music quality is really where it shines. Oh..The ear phones that comes with it flat out suck! I'm looking to get some ear buds to replace them. Battery life seems to be decent. I'm recharging about every two or three days talking a good bit and sending atleast 20 txt a day. If you look around you can get it for less than 300.00 shipped express. Not real sure if you can post website addy's or not. I'd buy it again. Hope this helps.

New themes cannot be downloaded for E8 as is done for sony or nokia phones. but the default theme is very good. one can actually create new theme on e8 but for mr it is useless as it only changes wallpapers, screensavers and ringtones.
keypad has absolutely no problems. i bought this phone on the first day of its launch and i usually type atleast 20 messages a day. since actual size of keys are large, typing is that much easier with less to none wrong keystrokes. if you think of it as a soft touch key pad, you will never like it but if you think of it as a mormal keypad, you will love it.
hi guys !!!! i want to buy E8. but my friend told me that we can.t download themes through data cable. and is keypad have problem after sometime in writing text.

I just bought this phone yesterday, and I've got to say that this phone is the most beautiful phone I have ever laid my eyes and hands on. I just love carrying it with its glossy exterior. The features are all perfect! Plus the expandable memory is a great addition since it already has a 2gb internal memory. This phone is kind of reminiscent to an Ipod but with added phone functionality. And its really slim! the only downside that I found was that the camera is only 2MP, but it's even clearer than my previous phone's camera (Nokia 6670). Overall, great phone at an affordable price (Bought it for PHP14,000)
i bought the moto E8 and its just great.the design especially the touch scroller is really cool. this mobile with better camera(megapixel) would have made it a winner but nevertheless it is good.
Ok ppl i bought this phone at sangeetha for rs 12500 it comes only in dark navy(in india) with 2 gb internal memory i bought a 4 gb card for 1 grand. The phone is awesome the interface is good screen is good(not very small) key pad exellent and earphones are not very good but you can always buy a different one . Camera is also average but music quality is top notch and exellent equalisers camera not very good but on phone the photos looks good and it reads out msg s :) and ya the album art comes as a very small icon not very big all in all worth buyin for its music and style and yeah i put this post from my e8 usin opera mini :)
If I remember correctly,e8's 500mhz is the fastest cellphone processor in the world today. Nokia Xpressmusic uses a separate audiochip for its music capabilities but I dont think it is on par with the moto system. Only the up and coming motorola z10 has a faster one (800mhz)
Depending on where you buy, there may be memory cards free but I dont think so, since there is already 2gigabytes onboard phone memory.
Another thing, MOTOPHONES ARE IMMUNE TO MOST VIRUSES. You wont need anti-virus with these things, as when the files in question are corrupted and you try to play them, motorola interface prompts you and asks your confirmation in deleting said file. I havent actually encountered viruses on the e8, but all recently released motophones have it so I dont think this would be different as it uses the same Linux OS.
Also, at a phone expo in Britain, they tried an 8gb memory card on it, and it worked!! So you can get up 10 GIGABYTES OF MEMORY!!!!! Although there may be problems when you get higher since only a 4gig card is recommended.
My experience with an older motophone where I placed a card that isnt up to its recommended capacity is that the playlist refused to read the additional songs. The phone refutedly supports only 512mb, but i reached 700mb of my 1 gig card before I encountered any problem. However, all 700mb were only songs and I was still able to use the 300mb for pictures. I managed to fix the problem though and it works fine now.
If we follow that context for all motophone systems means that if you put 8gb cards in, you can use 5gigs before encountering any problem, not to mention the 2gig onboard, you get 7gb worth of song memory + 3 gigs for other stuff.
