Sweet Phone

Reviewed on Monday September 6, 2004 by , Calgary
I have used the V600 ever since it was released in Canada and have never been more pleased with the phone - looks great works great and tons of cool features(like the MP3 tones). Only downside would be front plate of phone is very, very prone to scratches. Best phone I have ever used.

Third Motorola Phone

Reviewed on Wednesday September 1, 2004 by , London, England
My last phone was the V50, and I upgraded here in London for 40 uk pounds (about 70 bucks), mainly because my battery on the old phone wasn't lasting much anymore. I therefore wasn't looking for a long list of features.

However, I've now managed to use it as a mini-PDA which syncs with my Mac, both phone numbers and calendar (although NOT via Bluetooth, which only transfers pics, midi, audio etc...) you have to get the USB cable (which also acts as a charger, saving me the cost of buying a second charger (I had two with my last phone, one for home and one for office))

The V50 was much much lighter, and actually felt flimsey, but lasted well enough, being plastic. I suspect it would also fair better in a drop from waist level than the new phone.

I haven't managed to get the Instant Messenging working yet. I can't seem to access any web URLs, it always comes up Requested Entity Too Large :-( No doubt I'll figure it out eventually.

Good to see how far things have moved on in two years.

The most overhyped phone in history

Reviewed on Wednesday August 4, 2004 by , Laval, Quebec
The Motorola V600... As a Rogers retailer, I can say that no phone has generated such interest from the public before its release. After tried it through and through, I can say now that yes, its impressive, good-looking, but so overpriced!

Allright, for the good part, the screen on this phone is the best I've ever seen (yes, even better than on a Samsung!). Its crystal-clear, even outside on a sunny day. The camera is nice, on the screen at least. When transfered on a computer, the pictures lose their appeal, they all look blurry, so don't buy this phone only for this feature. The quand-band is an intersting feature, now business people can travel all over the world and carry their phone number with them. The user interface is fun, the menus are clear and easy to navigate. Lastly, the metal finish and the lights around the Motorola logo are neat, but kinda useless...

Now, for the less-good parts. The user interface is slow, and I mean SLOW... Sometimes, when you want to change menus, it will even freeze for a couple of seconds, go on "No Service" for a few seconds and go back to the main menu. The Bluetooth feature is half-baked at best, you can use it mainly with a wireless handsfree or to download pictures to your computer, you can't use it as a wireless modem (like with the Sony Ericsson T616). Also, the cover is easy to scratch and it doesn't take long to get it all covered with fingerprints. And last, but not least, the reception on this model is less than stellar. As a matter of fact, my V300 has a lot better coverage, at least in the province of Quebec. The V600 is less powerfull in closed area, like basements or concrete buildings.

I was impressed with this model, like everyone, the first time I've tried it. But by looking deeper, I've found out that this model may be not the Second Coming like everyone seemed to think. If you take it as a prototype of what the new models from Motorola will look like, its a good sign. But I'll wait for a price drop...

Under Further Consideration....

Hiya, I recently wrote a review on this phone and think it important to add something that has come to my attention about the phone that some of you need to be aware of.

This phone still is amazing with reception....

...but as I said, it is heavy. It also is _extremely_ scratch prone on all transparent surfaces. For those users like me who like to put in your pocket or be relaxed even a little rough with your phone, this phone is not for you.

The camera also often takes pictures that when you take them look good but when you go to save them, look as though someone had poured water on a fresh painting.

Still a good phone... but not worth the asking price.

Very Happy

My uses are a little different than some of the other users commenting on this phone.

I use my phone as both a work phone & my primary home number (no landline). That means I NEED good reception, no matter where I am and at all times. Whether I am on the highway, in a glass building, in a parking garage, in the middle of nowhere, or surrounded by concrete.. I need this phone to work, and work with good quality sound.

This phone works anywhere at work, including the second level underground parking. At home with my last phone, I often missed calls, was rejected from calling, experienced dropped calls, or had circumstances where a person's voice was unintelligible... oh... and in the kitchen had zero reception. With this phone, I can go anywhere in the house and not fear losing connection. I get a sustained 3 bars and in some cases all 5 or 6 bars.

The camera's cool, as is the level of customization you can have on this thing.

My only disappointments with this phone are that its a bit heavy, and that the screen is smaller than I would expect of a phone in this price range. And of course, that it has that motorola-specific left-send button vs. the standard right-send button.

All-in-all, a great phone though. The reception abilities alone are worth the extra price.

this is by far the best cellular phone i've ever had. it blows regular phones out of the water with its amazing video watching capability, and has an excellent camera as well. the reception is great anywhere i go, and everyone that sees it gives me great compliments. its even helped me get a few numbers, if you know what i mean ;)... i suggest this phone for anyone with money and the knowledge of a good deal.
