Apologies for comment immediately below - in haste I misread talha's comment about ringtone playing went text sent (as opposed to received) ... talha's phone was def faulty in that case. Apologies again :x(
In response to talha's comment:
- You can download pics by connecting via USB and looking in the "pictures" folder. Although you can only download pictures you've taken and not any of the standard ones.
- Text tone can be set separately to the ringtone. If yours "rang" when you got a text then it was faulty.
I was looking for a budget phone that looked good and had a good battery life. After much comparison, between Motorola W220, Samsung X210,Nokia 6060 i decided to buy this one.
- Looks and feels absolutely fantastic, like a real phone not a plastic toy.
- The missed call, message and battery notification on the cover is simple but very functional and looks good too.
- The radio and voice sound quality is awesome.
- Screen is very good and looks solid.
- It has all the basic functions qou could need in a budget phone.
- only 100 numbers in contact list (for me though that's enough)
- the menu is not that stylish, though you can change wallpaper and colours.
- It's a bit more expensive considering the functionality than other similar phones.
The bottom line is this is a good solid budget phone and what costs more is the stylish looks. You just have to decide if that is good enough reason for you to spend 20-30 dollars more. For me it was.
A very good basic phone with good voice clarity and a really loud speaker phone which is most suitable to use handsfree when driving. Highly recommended if making and receiving calls is what you're looking
this is the best basic phone i ever seen.all basic functions.people dont try to find advance features in it as it is a basic phone
Smart, flashy looking phone that does "exactly what it says on the box". Can't believe though that it was a lower spec than V220. Bought as replacement to it then had to return. Why still make phones you can't download pictures off! Lovely big screen, great camera, basic ringtones, different games to V220 (bit boyish). Weird that when text is sent ringtone plays. Disappointed with it but only cos I wanted to download pictures - no other reason.
Forget all about the lack of technical stuff,this is a great,inexpensive,simple to use,smart looking,small,above average basic phone.Speaker phone is office quality,great for hands free and you get a radio.Amazing standby and talk times.Good pictures-no phone can compare in picture quality with todays digital cameras--buy a camera !!!!!!
amazingly good phone for its price and excellents looks. 1 of the best basic phones on the market
I've seen this model in o2 stores here in the UK in black only. I'm hoping many other phone stores have this phone in the other colour solutions. I hoping to get the orange coloured one! :-)
If you read comments below you'll find a lot of b-atching about poor camera quality, memory etc. This phone wasn't designed to be a be all and end all phone - it's a just above entry-level phone and should be judged as one.
It's small, smart and has the edge over other brands in terms of customising the settings e.g. you can set the text language separately of the menu language and it has vibe then ring or vibe & ring together. The volume of the ringer and strength of vibrate is superb and you easily can set different sounds for different alerts (call and text). The camera is basic and if you only need a basic camera - it works. If not then look at a more expensive phone.
Before getting this phone I tried a LG Chocolate (almost inaudible text alert even on the "loud setting" and woeful handling of predictive text cAsE settings!) and a Samsung E900 (unable to turn off key error volume when in silent mode despite there being a menu option to do so!). I bought the W375 unlocked for less than 100 GBP - sorted.
So in summary, while comments below (and probably above) about camera quality etc are objectively valid they are not valid to levy against this phone given its peers. If you want a robust basic phone that's good for the occasional low quality snap this phone comes recommended - plus you get a radio to boot.
Apologies to other posters who feel I may have offended them by having a pop but if you can show me a better phone for the money I'll stand corrected … show me the phoney ... :)
Good fone, especially if you are in between high end models and need a decent basic second fone. Money rules!
Finaly Motorola has a popular , quite mobile. Simple , clasic, trendy sexy,its a 3 x1 one, mobile, radio and camera. I strongly recomend it an its price friendly
Got to ask the question why did they make this phone? If you want a cam in a phone then this is not for you.Cam is 0.3 .pictures are horrible.Why does it need a bluetooth if it has only 1.5 mb.what are going to download in it if it had one.Of course it will be slow if it has only that much memory in it.So i would tell you if you want to buy a phone skip that one because its got a cam you cannot use and a memory that will keep you asking what do i erase next to keep the phone from working properly because you cannot use the whole 1.5mb otherwise your phone will just crash or else.Want size and nostalgia get the 220 instead.Less things there besides sms to get you worried about what to fill your phone with.
It's a good phone for the basics. I think for the average consumer it is a great buy, I played around with it and it is a little simple. But in the end it's a great phone.
A fantastic busget phone for the user who needs just talk and text and the odd photo.
But Motorola phones are genurally sh;t
