Motorola RAZR2 V8 - A good solid phone
Good call quality, solid construction, very good battery life, durable, stylish.
Charger/USB hard to connect. USB cover fell off. Poor Menu structure, Slow internet
The Motorola RAZR2 V8 is a very good Motorola phone. I bought it to replace my Nokia because the call quality is easier for me to hear. The phone has held up well over nearly a year with one exception: The small cover over the charger/Micro USB port eventually fell off. On a day to day basis, the phone works well and has great call quality with very good battery life. It has a reassuring heft and solid feel as well as a beautiful and very durable finish. The camera takes very good pictures and the MP3 player works well over the speakerphone speaker or Bluetooth 2.0 stereo headphones. Downloading pictures to my computer via Bluetooth is a snap. On the downside, the keypad is difficult to use by feel, the camera and media controls are buried in the menu structure, you can't start the camera or turn off MP3 with the phone closed, the internet connection is painfully slow and the menu organization is poor. Also the charger is difficult to connect.All in all, this is my favorite Motorola phone, but I really prefer Nokia or LG with their better menu structures, charger ports and key feel.
