You can't make video shots i believe with this phone isn't it? But on the Motorola download site you can order short video's for the v80. Is the pianoblack finish fingerprint resist, or is it bad like the t610 and tm100 (polish cloth included?).
The V80 is produced from plastic, although saying that there is no flex in case or squeaking when I'm using my handset. The shiny black surface looks very sophisticated whilst the platinum trim does look like it is made from a metal, even though it is not.
Anyone else viewing phone not aware of the V80 wouldn't realise that there are lights beneath the trim! :P
The v70 was made of metal (aluminium). Is the v80 also made of metal or is it plastics now?
In regards to configuring the supplied Bluetooth headset:
-Hold down the largest button on the headset for approximately 5 seconds, until the 'M' symbol continuously flashes blue.
-Hold down both volume keys for approximately 6 seconds or until the 'M' logo remains fully lit. It should no longer be flashing.
-Search for Bluetooth devices via the V80's menu options.
-The phone will find 'Headset 820' or similar. You will then be asked for a pin code. Type in: 0000
Recently I received my V80 and it has exceeded all my expectations. Before purchasing I had a difficult time deciding between either this handset or the V600, which seems to be a little more 'business' orientated in terms of aesthetical design. However upon arrival of the V80 I was surprised at how small and light the handset is! The design of the phone definitely stands out from the crowd and oozes build quality. So far I have had many a positive moment about various aspects of the phone, especially focusing on the excellent screen quality.
The only downside I can see so far is the fact that to connect the V80 to your computer you require a Bluetooth USB dongle and software. This in turn results in more money spent! Even though you receive a Bluetooth headset with the V80 (Worth £60-70) I would've rather opted for the software, which to me is far more useful ...
Other than that the V80 is a top phone! The situational lights are cool too ;)
I just got my phone today and can't set up the bluetooth headset. I followed the instructions exactly and it keeps saying "no devices found." Somebody please help!!!
Mp3 player is supported...It has mp3 ringtones as well...but no mmc card...
I got my V80 a week ago and Im still findin it the greatest phone Ive ever had. I used to have the V70 and love they kept the swivel function plus now with the lights and polo ringtines just finishs it off nicely great touch by moto to add the blue tooth for free as well.
i just bought this fone yesterday and im totally blown away...and so r my friends. Every time i get it out in front of people, ther is guaranteed to be someone who goes WOW! the rhythm lights r really cool too, plus the free bluetooth headset is the best. THUMBS UP TO MOTO
Hi, got me phone - its class! However i can't seem to work out how to assign a different event light to a incoming text message, does anyone know how to do this - manuals don't provide any help :( P.S. texting isn't as fast as a Nokia but all moto's are the same as they use ITAP - oh well can't be helped. Cheers in advance guys.
Mine is ordered and i will receive it before the end of the week! Yeah klaas - very usefull coments! I have used the K700 and its features are impressive but it doesn't have the presense of the V80, the style and design - as you say Mido it stands out from the crowd, makes a change from the standard candybar or camshell versions! Also the lights around the face of the phone are simply superb! Well done Moto!
What a useful comment by Klass...He has given us a great evaluation/opinion regarding this phone-keep up the great work...honestly its a great comment for a 6 year old!
I fully recommend this phone-i have used it for a couple of weeks after replacing a Nokia 6230-the screens dont even compare, this by far is superior and so is network reception-yes the nokia does have a couple of more features but this has everything a proffesional needs including style! The rotating mechanism is truley a great work of enginering-its stlyish but doesnt compormise the durability and reliability of this phone which does stand out from the crowd! As for the software i cant complain, everything works fine and is very user friendly and i like the added security features. The GPRS is much faster than Nokia or SE-my advice to Nokia is keep your user interface the same but do something more creative about style and reliability and by that i mean something flashy but not in the way of practicality so no silly key pads or cartoon designs (or those found in nurseries)-Sony Ericsson have to do something about network reception on the 1800 & 1900 GSM, as the reception is beyond terrible which ultimately shortens battery life-finaly what i like about Motorola phones is that they remain focused on voice quality which is the best among all. I always get great reception even in weak spots and with internal ariels on ALL frequencies. Whatever people say about features such as 1 mega pixel cameras and MP3, that should not substitute: Voice quality,User interface and Build quality (durability,size,wieght,style) the MOST important things in a PHONE-this is where the V80 excels in and other V series Motorola.
