The first phone I got is Motorola 5200 and i still keep it and still working, only the battery that is damaged. Then I use Startac85, it felt good, small and lightweight. And the third I use the L series, I love the voice dialing and voice notes who owned L series. Great phone at that time .....
This is the best looking, elegant cellphone ever made!
Today it looks like still special, rare and hot!
I have 8 startacs (and, for example 3200, 8200, 8700 etc), all working and look almost unworn, with strong main and aux batteries.
Nowadays I use startac day by day. :-)

what i mostly love on this phone is its pretty damn good HD video recording capability.
WHat I love in this fone is the ZOOM capability of its camera w/c 20 megapixels, with auto focus btw.
Great strong wifi b/g/n.

With a resistive touch screen w/c is small at only 2" btw, what a waste

This is the best phone i have ever used.
i have used many modern phones but this one was very special to me.
I loved the StarTAC when it was introduced, which is why I invented the StarCAP. I wanted to make it more durable and pocketable. I'm happy to see I wasn't alone.
I got my StarTac in late 2001 and I’m still using it today. I’m on my 2nd battery and things are going just great. I bought a StarCap antenna protection clip soon after I saw other people with broken antenna’s. So how did I choose the StarTac? I watched which sales guys ran out of the building to use their phones and which ones were walking around inside the building with no reception problems. Like everyone has said, great UI and sound. I found out I could get a new phone free from Verizon, so I started looking at the Motorola KRZR and LG 8600 and decided to just keep my StarTac for now. I’ve also got a Palm TX which covers most bells and whistles anyone could need.
