looks great and most of the spec is cool, except for no 3G support. for that cost, nokia and others give 3G which is a big advantage. I hope moto "recognizes" the target users while deciding the spec of a new phone
dmarvp, 14 Oct 2008that's the only con I have with this phone. If you listen to music a lot (and that's what this... moreYou are lucky my man, having so much time listening to music.
I got an E8 and the battery life is really good, much better than my previous V8, in fact I was more than happy. I'm a heavy phone user with my bluetooth headset turned on connected from morning right up till night before I sleep & recharging and the E8 can last me about one and half day, with my previous V8, less than a day probably about 10 hours in average. If your E8 can only last you less than a day, I believe your music usage must be non-stop with brightness turned up a notch higher, probably screensaver on, bluetooth on, backlight duration more than 20 seconds, my guess. I don't know whether this helps, I charge my phone for about 8 hours every night, maybe you can try re-adjusting the settings and charge it longer?
E8, 13 Oct 2008How long does its battery last with frequent use?that's the only con I have with this phone. If you listen to music a lot (and that's what this phone is supossed to be prepared to) the battery doesn't last more than a day.
Stuart, thanks for entertaining questions. You are probably one of the nicest poster on the web!
Here are my queries: my phone can't play all the music stored in my microSD card continuously (the way it does to ALL the songs stored in phone memory. Playlist accept only songs stored in my phone. Mine has no base boost ,too!Is this how it is or my phone has a problem? Is there a smusic player setting which allows me to choose memory card or phone memory?
100 Moto, 10 Oct 2008E6 is Linux based full touch screen phone support up to 2GB external memory. E6 has 2.4" vert... moreis it true that e8 can support a memory card up to 8gb? im just curios you know coz i bought e8 yesterday! thanks!
A truly fantastic phone! The music sounds awesome. I have a question though, I can't seem to turn on the bass boost.
Got mine today! And I'm really happy about it.
I'm glad I didn't get discouraged by the negative comments about this phone. Some people are obviously asking too much from it. They are to busy complaining to see what beauty this phone has. Certainly,they are the type who will never get satisfied. That's sad.
But this phone rules! May not be the best, but it stands out among the rest.
Cingulair, 10 Oct 2008That is not so. It is supported on AAC files also. Try the 128 kps size.how do you create your .aac files? I create mines with Itunes (the extension of the files is m4a in the end tough. don't know if that means something). I add the album art with Itunes as well or with mediamonkey. Still I tried with the 128kbps size and no album art is showing.
Another question on the air: How much does your battery last ? I find myself charging my battery every night. That's annoying as hell.
First Draw back is NO FLASH because of that u can have picture in night.
Ring volume is not much loud and keypad is not comfortable for typing sms.
But the look is good.
I m motorola loverz... but i gonna get a new hp, this hp's screen seem... small,hmmm.... and how izzit the sound quality, great~?
Stuart, 10 Oct 2008Just to share with you on my experience. I only sync via Motorola phone Tool, for contact, cal... morehi
i want to know whether games can be downloaded in e8. also in this multitasking can be done or not , i mean while listening to music can we play games.
dmarvp, 10 Oct 2008I found yesterday that the album art is only supported on .mp3 files. Not on .m4a or .aac file... moreJust to share with you on my experience. I only sync via Motorola phone Tool, for contact, calendar, music, ringtones and etc.. Using the Phone Tool, I can actually direct where the song should go to, either Phone or Memory card and you can even create new folder to store different audios.
I've not synced directly via Windows Media Player so I won't be able to pin point the problem you were facing, hope the above helps.
