Motorola RAZR2 V8
On first opening the box i was unsure what to expect.As a nokia user for some time i thought i would try something a bit different. At a first glance the V8 looks a very sleek stylish mobile.Its very slender body and the finish gives it a very modern eye catching look.I had visions of it being identical to the old v3 but its a much more updated appealing look.With its crystal clear large outer touch screen and fantastic 2.2 inch QTFT 262,000 inner screen screen it totally blows the v3 out of the water in that respect. The camera quality appears to be very good for a phone but like all camera phones its never going to match that of a proper digital camera, although the picture quality is better than a lot of other phones i have previously had. The layout menu is very easy to navigate.Found no problems finding what i needed.Everything is well set out and the initial setup process was simple.The sound quality of the v8 is fantastic.I tried out various tracks and it had no problems at all with the sound. Overall i highly rate the phone.It looks fantastic.Its feels very solidly built(Apparently a combination of metal and hardened glass).The menu layout was easy to figure out. I have used phones that cost three times as much as these will set you back and i have to say the V8 not only looks better but out performs all. If your looking for a great looking, solid built, easy to use phone with all the gadgets you need i recommend the v8

Motorola V8 RAZR2 phone
This was my second V8 after the last one finally died after two years of abuse.I am not a fan of smart phones- too complicated when all i want is to call/text/take a picture rather than fiddle with a netbook wannabe! I love the Motorola interface and yet its hard to find one on a contract so i get a reduced contract and buy my own phone.Lovely big screens and the buttons are big enough to use without nail extensions.. Yet the whole phone is one of the thinnest i have seen so fits neatly into a pocket.The software enables easy download of pictures/video and has a neat backup system for all the phone info- very useful if transferring info or if you lose your phone.Battery life is average but it is fast to recharge.
Dislikes-you really need a good quality case (easily bought on Ebay for around £5)as the screens are easily cracked- especially if your husbands horse chucks you on the road with the phone in your back pocket ;) the fancy paintwork does chip and peel if left unprotected in your pocket with keys but these are fairly petty/common sense things.
I would definately buy another one and my husband is always borrowing it as it is so much quicker to make a call/text rather than wrestle with his cr*pberry ;)

Motorola RAZR2 V8 Cell Phone
I got an excellent price for this phone, £65 from ebay user:heliganeden who occasionally has them for sale. Although this item was reconditioned it was in excellent condition. Good features are the touch buttons on the front which are kinda cool, the camera that you can see yourself when taking photos on the front colour screen is probably its best feature though. Its great for what i want in a phone especially for this price, there are better phones with better cameras and more features, yet they will cost a lot more money. Asthetically beautiful, the only down side for me is there is no memory card slot, the mp3 player speaker is fantastic though!

|Value for money|
just love this phone it is very resy to use tho for some reason it won't send mms.
battery life ok till i play music but mine came with a spare battery so all ok there.
its very bling with its gold lines my mates call it a pimps phone.
this is a brill phone if your after a flip type i had bought the gleam previously to this which i was really unhappy with.
The weight and ease of use make this a very good all round phone, if there as one critisism then its that Motorola have yet to address the battery life level which is poor compared to other phones. All in all though a good solid simple easy to use phone - This is my 3rd.
