A Tale of Two Phones Review with images

AdvantagesGreat design

DisadvantagesDifficult to use

"...had decided I wanted the Motorola Z8. I hate Motorolas as a general rule - I find them quite clunky and hard to use but I had tried a Z8 out and decided I quite liked the feel of it. I was sold on the HD screen, the fact it will play a full length film (not that I often have occasion to watch a film on my phone but you don't think of these things when you buy one). It seemed pretty easy to use with a decent sized memory but most of all I liked the ..." Read review

AdvantagesNice phone, Nice bright Colours... Good memory

"...and i came across the Motorola Z8. it looked good, it sounded good and aparantly it was meant to be good..... little did i know how much trouble i would have with this phone.

I could sit here and tell you all about what you get with it, the memory card, tell you about how pretty it looks... ..." Read review

"Motorola make a nice phone?!! Yes its true, this phone is fairly good, it has all the features of a modern day phone and more. Well first of all the standard functions: they are very good, the mp3 player is very good and the quality of the sound is fantastic, i compared it to my Sony Erricson w850i and i prefered the Motorola Z8. As for the other features they are pretty much the same. Except from the curving slide design which works suprisingly ..." Read review

My honest opinon

Advantagesgood picture quality

Disadvantagesmy whole reveiw is negative realy

"I got this phone with o2 over a pay monthly scheme. I pay £35 a month and this came with the phone for free as well as a free bluetooth headset. It came with the film The Bourne Identity on a 512mb mini SD card. The phone is stlish and has a bend in it to cause ease with talking on the phone and has 16million colours, a 2 megapixl camera with an 8 times zoom. To be quite honest however i wish i'd never bothered with this phone. It has caused nothing ..." Read review

Motorola really are not worth the bother

AdvantagesThe look good

DisadvantagesBut never work more than 5 minutes

After careful consideration, I order my Motorola Z8 online and opted for a 18 month contact with 02, this was last November. I had the phone proberly less than a month before the screen went wrong, for example I would try to make a call and the screen woulnd turn purple/ red/ black and then ..." Read review

The Bourne Identity Motorola Z8 Edition

AdvantagesAmazing phone, long battery life, smooth movie graphics

DisadvantagesCan become faulty if used vigorously and the slide mechanism can become scratched

"After browsing through catalogues of mobile phones and accessories, my eyes instantly fell upon the sleek design of the Z8. Unlike all conventional mobile phones, this phone has a 'slide and bend' feature which enables a more comfortable firt around the user's head. It also has a crystal clear interface screen which shows images and movies in high resolution. The Bourne Identity edition not only includes the phone but comes with the surreal S9 headphones ..."

Motorola RIZR Z8

AdvantagesLoads of state of the art features!

DisadvantagesTakes a bit of getting used to.

"I got this phone a few days ago and was drawn to the fact that it also plays movies in HD as well as music. The casing is sturdy, but a little awkward to open at first, till you get used to it.(I kept knocking the battery cover off by accident). The camera quality is exceptional and when you watch a movie, the picture quality is 'top notch'. I will be able to watch sky tv on it when it becomes available but due to the newness of this product its ..." Read review
