Stuart, 12 Sep 2008Guess you're right, I like flip phone like my previous V8, had to give up due to current work ... moreTime to get myself a name here.
Thanks for your compliment. Sorry about getting off topic, as I tried an Z9 when I was in US in June.
Unfortunately the phone doesn't support the 3G network in HK, hence HK doesn't carry it.
Don't like V9 myself bcoz I've to dial the v-call number then close the flip...quite a hassle compare to my other "active" 3G phones like V3maxx I-mode, V6, or even A1000 and E770. (had an E1070 but was stolen)
For E8, personally I'm not too used to its keypad, so I've decided to trade it in for something else. (another Moto phone, of course!)
I am a Nokia fan, but i realize that Moto is making great change in its phones lines. If in the past month the company has been subject to critics as people said Motorola just continued to duplicated the RAZR models by several variants. It's obvious that feedback has lead Moto to make a step forward. I appreciated the effort made by its designer when consider Moto E8 end EM30. As Nokia fan i was about to buy Nokia 5220 XpressMusic when i discover the Moto ROKR E8. And i can tell you that this phone complies with all that i need as a music lover. I've read users opinions and i can say there are more positive than negative points. I decide to buy the E8 and it will be the first time i'll use another brand. Nokia has deceived me since my last phone (Nokia 5310)has re-starting problem that can not be solved.
i wish the E8 will fit me and make me forget about Nokias so called Xpress music phones.
that razr 3 will come with 5mp , symbian,wifi,gps,fm radio,3.5ghsdpa
kasra, 15 Sep 2008my musicplayer is very basically and there is no effect on it.and this is different to GSMaren... morekasra,
I believe the effect you were talking about is the album cover (usually picture of the singer). I've loaded some songs into my E8, some via bluetooth from another phone or converted by a music converter software then sync via PC. Most of the songs did not display the album cover except a few. So if the source of the songs you obtained from come with the album covers, you'll see them but if not, nothing will show.
Hope this helps.
Andy, 15 Sep 2008Hi all again.
Sorry I have not been on this much, I have been very busy with work....Stu how ... moreHey Andy, I'm really honoured to be included & mentioned by you. However, I must admit that I'm not an expert in phones especially E8, it's just that I'm willing to share whatever limited knowledge I have with everyone. There are many others that frequent here and I can see they are way more experience than me definitely and are willing to help too.
For me, I was surprised with the battery life of E8 because I was not expecting it to outlast my previous V8 much. Statistically, based on the E8 & V8's spec sheet published here, the E8's talk time is supposed to be 6 hrs and V8's almost 8 hrs. From my usage, the E8 practically outlasted V8 by approx. 20 to 30% more, something good that I was not expecting.
Well, another issue that I'll be monitoring is the E8's frame finishing, including the frontal part where the keypad is located. Just wanted to know how tough is it, from scratches or impact.
Cheers to all.
