"Solid phone, but wish it went the extra mile in customization"3.0 starson by Sumo Joel
Pros: Solid construction, long battery life, decent camera phone
Cons: Customization options leave much to be desired
Summary: This phone replaced my Motorola v710. I like the phone overall, but I just wish it went the extra mile in various areas.
1. It doesn't feel cheap, but I wish it was thinner. The v710 was thin.
2. No belt holster was included this time around in the package.
3. Cameraphone is improved over the v710, but the images are a shade too bright. Increasing the contrast only makes photos darker, not better.
4. My biggest pet peeve -- there are only 3 skins/themes to choose from: Moto, Scarlet, and Techno, which are all gaudy/cheesy. You are stuck with these three skins, and can't even download anything else.
5. For some reason, even "High" quality (1280x1024) camera phone pictures used as wallpaper appear grainy/pixelated. They look fine to view or posting online, but not as wallpaper. It's just odd.
6. On a related note, any photo you use as wallpaper will be used as the wallpaper on the outside display. Sounds good initially, except all the external display text basically block out the photo, which in my opinion doesn't look all that great.
I think the phone is solid and decent, but not really exciting.
