u r just correct AB i don't know why some people are off topic.V8 has a very cool design and who says motorola is not good?that is not correct that motorola phones have a very expensive if we send it for repair. i have two motorola phones V3 and A 780.infact i have never sent my phones to repair because i never had a problem in 2 years
well in my case a phone is a phone right lol just for makeing calls not stupid cam phones and other stupid things people only go by the features on a phone now not by the signal and battery life thay want a star ship on there pockets my phone cost 29.99 and works well to what a shame on you's paying 100 of pounds out for phone's that do silly things :(
Nokia phones are definately most reliable.....Motorola phones NO comparision.
Moto phones repair charge are also very high!!!
A little off topic here, we should be giving our opinions on the Motorola V8 not any Nokias
Rudh, you must keep in mind that a there are a lot more Nokia's sold than some other brands, so there are bound to be more returns/repairs. I also work in the mobile phone industry and i find that there are only a select few Nokia's that have recurring problems, and the rest are fab!
The V8 has expandable memory up to 256MB, the d500 has only built in memory 80MB
Samsung D500 - 1.3mp Camera
Motorola V8 - VGA Camera
D500 - 96mb memory
V8 - 5mb memory
D500 -93.5 x 45.7 x 23.5mm
V8 -113 x 49 x 11.5 mm
Yeah but be mindfull that the camera will only be VGA, meaning it looses out to the D500 and the upcoming sony's, it may be stylish but its in no way leading the pack for technological inovation.
(Sorry for the double post)
Motorola Menus are great...
I have worked for T-mobile for over a year... and I would never recommend a Nokia. They break very fast... relatively, the percentage of new phones (less then 1 year old) that came in for repair were Nokia's.
This phone is very beautiful! and the specs are perfect! No doubt about that... beats the D500 certainly!
D500 is big AND thick.
But don't be mistaken... the V8 is very thin but CERTAINLY NOT SMALL!
I am still hoping the SonyEricsson Z700 (from 2003!) will someday comout (it is a cancelled phone :( )
Very nice phone, slim,anyone knows how it looks in real life ? please tell me before buying
Why need for Li-Poly bathery when this can last 17 days in standby and 6 hours of talking!!! Find any other that can last so much !!! Look at this photo: http://www.mobileburn.com/media/motorola/slvr/slvr_side-IMG_8720.jpg just great looking. it has blue light in keyboard, fantastic phone. I am Nokia user and hear that motorola has bad menu. What do yoy think about that. Nokia is easy to use.
AB!!!! Are you crazy? Is it ALL u need?? Where is Li-Poly battery??
Kind regards from Poland!
its all you need, stunning looks, sleek black colour, small, THIN, camera, MP3 PLAYER, EXPANDABLE MEMORY CARD SLOT, EDGE
what more do you need
As I see this phone is simmilar to E398 but twice as thin, wich is good !!!! MOTOROLA PHONES are the BEST PHONES!!!!!
