Pros Beautiful screen and fast web browsing
Cons You are more likely to connect to Edge which is slow
Summary This is NOT just another Razr. The screen is beautiful. This is compared to the latest Cingular 3G smart phones. The web browsing and cingular video is fun and fast, with one major caveat, 3G. If you do not live in a 3G area, this phone really isn't worth it. I never use cell phone cameras, so the upgrade from VGA to 1.3mp is not appealing. I added Media Max 200, which is really cool, surf the internet anywhere and cingular video is pretty good for killing some time. Overall, this phone costs me $50 with an extended contract. I wanted a blackjack, but the only thing this phone is really missing is push email (although pushes from Yahoo) and you don't need to spend $40/month for a Data plan.
Pros Better quality than previous razors, mp3 capable, more physically durable
Cons many manufacturers defects, larger than other razors
Summary I sell cingular phones. This phone has a great look and was expected to be far better than previous models. I even sold it to a friend because I thought it was a better phone. Now that it has been out for a while almost every one I've sold has come back to the store for a repair of some sort. Some have lost their service, others have technical glitches (like defaulting to multimedia messages when you create a new text). I would NOT recommend this phone to anyone.
Pros Call Volume, Signal, External Buttons Don't Get in Way
Cons Camera Could Be Better, Call Log Not Complete
Summary I didn't do a full comparison since I only had both phones for a day and there are many features I don't care as much about. After all, the main function of a phone is to call people!!
This phone's call volume is much louder than the Sync. Also, you only need to push one button to get to Speakerphone during a call (I believe Sync required more than one button push which takes you away from your call longer than it should).
All of my old phones and the Sync could not get a signal inside an ice skating building. This phone could get a signal in most areas of the building.
I also use the phone as a watch. By pushing an external button, this phone's external display comes up with the time immediately. For the Sync, you had to push the button down for 3 seconds before the time came up. In that amount of time, you can open and shut the phone to see the time. What use is the Sync's external display in that case???
I find opening and closing this phone to be easier than the Sync. Also, the external buttons on this phone are located on the flip part rather than the non-flip part. I open the phone with my left hand and with the Sync I would frequently hit the external buttons, but not with this phone. Although hitting the external buttons really didn't screw anything up with the Sync, it was still slightly annoying to me.
One thing I liked about the Sync over this phone is the Sync's complete call log. If someone calls you multiple times, you can see the times of their last 30 calls. With this phone, if the person called 30 times in a row, it will only show the most recent call time. I also liked the Sync's individual number buttons.
Finally, the Sync's camera took a clearer picture, but the Sync's zoom hardly zooms compared to this phone. Taking an "unzoomed" (1X) picture on the Sync, the subject was so far away, you had to maximize the zoom just to get it to Motorola's "unzoomed" (1X) picture. Motorola then has 2X, 4X and 8X zoom. Of course, since Motorola's pictures aren't as clear, the zooming makes it even more pixalated.
But since I care mostly about the phone performance of my phone, how it performs as a camera is not a big deal to me as long as it can take a half decent pic which it does. I also didn't do any testing on the music or any other parts of this phone yet. I'm sure I will eventually, but as far as actual phone performance, this phone is far superior to the Sync.
One last thing, I think the chrome accents on this phone looks better than the plain black Sync (or the plain black version of this phone), but this phone does seem to show fingerprints more easily.Updated
Note, I had both phones together at the same time for a day because I originally got the Sync for myself, then got this phone for my daughter while I was still in my 30 day return period, so I kept both phones for a day to do the side by side comparison, then I gave my daughter her phone and exchanged my Sync for this phone.
Pros Great style
Cons Everything else
Summary We have 2 mine and my wifes. Same problems for both phones. Powers off by itself reseting to defaults, poor battery life, poor navigation. I am on my 3rd and my wife is o her 2nd. I my be turned off Motorola forever!
"wonderful phone"on by granlov55
Pros the best thing happened to me..my previous motokrazr..got fried for some unknown reason...they no longer made that model, so mine was replaced with the V3xx. It is a little wider,.the LCD is larger, great pics, videos, texts easily, sounds great.
Cons The only thing I found that I dislike about the phone.... and I have had the option to use several different phones, is that I was used to a 4gig memory card, this one only accepts a 2 gig memory card.
Summary Overall as I stated before the ease of use, pictures, videos, voice recording, texting.... (I prefer the full qwerty keyboard) everything I have used I really love. I do wish it would accept a 4 gig memory card. But since I don't download music much it's not such a bother. Another great thing I seldom ever lose service...It picks up a signal almost everywhere!! That is very important me! More so than any other feature!!
