Pros Small design, loud speakerphone, 2.0 MP digital camera, removable memory, battery life, strong signal
Cons no FM radio, high price
Summary I purchased this phone from topgiant.com and I have had it for around 1 week. When I first opened the box I noticed it looked alittle long compared to my old RAZR, but it was much slimmer and fit in my hand much better than the RAZR did. The Digital camera is great for photos and the speakerphone is loud, here are some pros and cons:
2.0 MP digital camera and video record
nice color display inside and out
strong reception with T-Mobile service
Quad band service for overseas use
Removable memory card slot
Mp3 Player with stereo headphones(sounds great!!)
Long Battery life
Its a head turner!
Should have FM radio on it
This is a really great phone, I am enjoying it and I love when people ask me about it and it gives me a lot of attention, I would reccomend it to anyone
Pros Great modern design
Cons programming not so great
Summary From a design perspective, this phone is ideal for the person needing a sleek, cool design with attitude. Keys are easier to use than V3 or any other RAZR series. Great camera, DURING THE DAY. No flash destroys the fact of a good camera. Great text message memory. Not a fan of the fact that everything has a menu. Too much to push and not convinent.
If you don't mind that you have to push more buttons to get to the selections you need, or that you can't truly personalize the phone as you could any other RAZR, then your okay. Also the music feature takes too long to come up vs. any other MP3 phone. When you try to retrieve pics from your memory card, you get a lot of formatting errors. I am big about the phone working for me and not me working for the phone.
Pros Solid, great form factor
Cons Flimsy power/USB cover, software
Summary The shape and heft of this phone is excellent. It feels "solid" without being bulky or heavy. The screen, while necessarily narrow, is clear and easy to see even in daylight.
The glassy front cover looks great at first but its charm is short term. As numerous other reviews have mentioned it seems to literally suck the fingerprints off of your hand. For the first week or so you'll polish it constantly then, if you are like me, you'll just resign yourself to a fingerprint covered phone and only polish it up when showing it to admirers.
The little plastic cover over the power/USB connector feels remarkably flimsy for such an otherwise solidly constructed phone. I'll be curious to see how long it before it breaks off...I'm not expecting it to last long. On the other hand, many other phones don't have any cover over the connector at all.
My worst gripe is software. For a high end phone you'd think Motorola would (1) have higher quality software and (2) include it with the phone. Instead you have to purchase it separately and its interface and interaction with outlook is far inferior to the software that is available for free for my previous nokia.
"Horrible Phone"on by lawstudent82
Pros Design, Battery Life
Cons Call Quality, Call Quality and Call Quality
Summary I generally get a new phone every few months and decided to try a Krzr. I have hear horrible things about the RZRs in the past but the employee at the store where I purchased this one from informed me that this one is much better.
He was wrong. The call quality on this was terrible. It consistantly dropped calls and I was constantly asking people to repeat themselves.
In my opinion a phone is as good as its call quality and the rest is just a bonus. This phone is the WORST phone I have ever owned. After replacing it through the warranty 4 times because each one was worse ATT finally gave me a Blackjack. I must say the call quality is far more superior.
DO NOT BUY THE KRZR!
Pros EDGE, 2MP camera, complete beauty, comfortable form factor
Cons no flash/autofocus, fingerprint heaven, no 3G (but there is no 3Gservice by me so EDGE is perfect for me)
Summary Ok someone needs to fire whoever looks over these reviews. First of CNET says the following:
"Unlike the Krzr, which supports Verizon's 3G EV-DO network, the Krzr K1m taps out at 2.5G EDGEG networks."
it should read:
"Unlike the Krzr K1m, which supports Verizon's 3G EV-DO network, the Krzr K1 taps out at 2.5G EDGE networks."
Also we have here:
"The internal display still supports 65,536 colors and measures 1.9 inches (176x220 pixels)"
The KRZR actually supports TFT 256K colors not 65K colors.
"We tested the (GSM 850/900/1800/1900; GPRS; EV-DO) Motorola Krzr K1 world phone in San Francisco using Cingular's service."
"We tested the (GSM 850/900/1800/1900; GPRS; EDGE) Motorola Krzr K1 world phone in San Francisco using Cingular's service."
Anyways this is an amazingly sexy phones with not the highest end of features but I'm not trying to have the phone make me a pizza or anything, it's a phone first and it does that spectacularly.
