KRZR K1 Review
Reviewed on Friday July 13, 2007 by Hiran, Calgary, Canada,
I started with the Motorola V551, recently upgraded to the SamsungD807x, but due to problems bought this phone. I am highly highly disappointed after all the hype about this phone. The software on the V551 is far superior to this phone!!!
Con 1 - only 9 speed dial entries, and they _cannot be contacts from your sim card!! this is useless, i barely use my contact list on my previous phones, as i always just flip through my speed dial entries. ONLY 9 speed dials?? and can't be from your sim card? this is useless!!!
Con 2 - no regular headphone, jack, only usb, and does not come with converter. so though i can put my micro sd card in it, i can't actually listen to music right now!!
con 3 - you have to take off the battery cover to even put the micro sd card in!
con 4 - the exterior lcd display, along with the main is absolutely terrible in natural sunlight. i have to continuously cover the sunlight with my hand in order to see, so i can dial, or 'use' the phone.
con 5 - the face plate is shiny why? because there is a glass sheet. if you are one that takes care of your phone, however, might drop your phone over the course of its life, the glass will break! - ITS GLASS! your cell phone company will not cover that damage.
pros - looks good from the outside, professional looking phone - business men will like that - goes well with a suit.
- reception is pretty good, battery life is pretty good. thats about it. Aside from looks, i would not recommend this phone, and i am actually returning it - switching to the Samsung A706. i will write a review on that once i have used it.
do not buy this phone, - wait for motorola's new line - the RIZR looks to be a much better phone - wait for that.
