5.0 out of 5 stars Long Live Motorazr V3!, 7 April 2010
This review is from: Motorola V3 Sim Free Mobile Phone - Black (Grey kit) TRD41 (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I, for one, utterly adore this phone! I got my first one when it originally came out, and I had the thing for over 3 years until it died an untimely death at the feet of a small child on the bus (knocked it out of my hand then stood on it - was not impressed). I got a slider phone after that and I couldn't get used to the keypad or any of the settings on it, and it seemed to freeze whenever I went near it.

In short, I repel technology, yet the original V3 (the basic model with no video camera) survived everything I could possibly do to it, which included being dropped down several flights of stairs on numerous occasions, and it never had a mark on it when it died. My only concern was how the number 8 on the keypad managed to fall off despite being flush to the phone.

The flaws: personally, I don't feel that a lack of video camera is a flaw, but there are those who would like their phone to sing, dance and do their ironing, as well as shoot 12 hours of video and have the storage space of an external hard-drive. If you use your phone as a camera or video camera, then this isn't the phone for you.
After a while (and I mean a long while), the battery starts to give up the ghost, but they are easily replacable, as are the chargers, which, sadly, aren't as durable as the phones themselves.
There's not a lot of space for music or downloads, but you can fit one of two small files on if you like your personalised ringtones, but the ones built in to the phone are pretty decent themselves if you're not that ringtone-conscious.

The pros: the contraption is indestructible! Mine went through hell and back and survived 3 years in the pocket/bag of a teenager, so you know it's built to last.
It does what it says on the tin. It's a phone; not a laptop, and it does exactly what a phone is designed to do, and it does it well. It has a very easy SMS and MMS style, it has great call quality, and it fits into your pocket nicely without looking like you're carting round a housebrick.
All in all, epic little phone!
