Large. Takes ages to write a comma in a text.

I was bored of my NEC e313. I wanted a phone with some of the more modern features, such as bluetooth.This was because I loved the idea of being able to share my pictures and videos for free. So I turned to my local Carphone Warehouse. After browsing through stupidly expensive phones, I came...

“Me and my brick”

published 20/05/2004

Sound and picture quality are excellent

It's too big

I traded in my NEC e606 because the battery life was really poor. I wanted to stay with 3 because, although the customer service is quite poor to say the least, they are by far the cheapest mobile provider around for cross network calls. So in January 04 I trundled off to my local 3 shop to see...

“Hello Moto!”

excellent features, good quality!

its the size of a brick (literally!)

The Motorola A835 is one of the current phones available on the mobile network called ‘3’. I work for the mobile phone retailer The Link, and in January we offered customers 100 pounds cashback if they signed up to a contract on 3 with this A835. As I was due a new contract myself, this offer was...

Call Quality, 3G services, display

size, weight, limiited features

The A385 is quite large, it will just about fit in your pocket and the unit is quite heavy for a mobile phone. This aside it is certainly a stylish phone, sleek and stylish colouring and nice to hold. The display quality is unfaultable, bright and an excellent colour range. The display works...

Great picture quality and focus speed

Poor performance and reliability

This phone appears fantastic on the face of it. When you first get it in your hand your immediate reaction is, 'how old is this phone? it's huge!' Well the phone has fantastic picture quality and the video player facility is superb. You have easy access to sports news and football highlights as...

Video Recorder and Camera, Cheap

Is a Brick, bad top-up options

I brought this for for the Reason that it had a built in Video Recorder and Camera. I wasn't willing to spend that much on it, i ended up splashing out £74.95 on it from the link. I didn't care about the size, i realised it would be big, it is a Video Recorder though isn't it. It was a big change...

i have had my phone for around 4 months now and I must say its not bad at all. While there are several aspects that kind of annoy me others add a little extra. The main problem with this phone is the battery life. If you was to use it quite a lot you will find it wont even last a day, typically...

Top features, reasonably decent camera

Obviously the size

Well what can i say? If this phone was a bit smaller everyone would want one. I picked this phone up a few months ago for a bargain of £75 which i think is extremely good for what it's worth. Nothing has broken yet either, which is rather reassuring! The camera quality i think is rather good, and...

Lots of features, good camera

Cannot see the screen in bright light or sunlight ...

I got my A835 on contract with 3 early 2004. The offer was half price line rental for 12 months, although I do have to claim back months 3 to 6 and then 6 to 12. I get 500 inclusive minutes to any network any time which is very good, but have to pay for SMS messages. The other package offered 500...

Firstly, I think this phone is fantastic, it has a lot to offer, The Built in loudspeaker is great, this allows you to listen to your Mp3 files, also headphones / hands free-kit is included so you can listen to your music more discreetly. You can create your own Play lists so you don’t have to...

Bad Network, Rather large, No Games!

Ive had the Motorola A835 for about 8 months now, I am delighted with the features the phone posseses, such as MP3 Player, Bluetooth, Infrared, Video Camera, Large Memory, etc. However, the phone is extremely large, perhaps even big enough for the Guinness World Book of Records. Seriously, its...

great features and a cool 64,000 color display

a very big phone with little battery life

Motorola's A835 will be the object of desire for anyone who lusts after amzing technology. This, my friends, isn't just your ordinary phone to make and receive calls but one of the first to make video calls. The Motorola A835 takes still pictures, records video clips, has java, and a staggering...
