Excerpt: This phone is godawful and anyone who owns it and doesn't work for Boost Mobile or Motorola will tell you that. It's flimsy, and it's not intuitive or easy to figure out. It has annoying features that you will never use and lacks features that everyone uses. If you set your alarm clock and the phone rings or you receive or send a text, or otherwise use the phone the alarm gets turned off.
Pros: It has a pretty design on the back cover, It made me appreciate other phones like never before.
Cons: It is tedious and annoying, It is not intuitive or user friendly, It lacks features that everyone uses and has features that no one cares about, Where is the calculator?, The alarm clock, Deleting messages, Reviewing multiple msgs, Delays downloading messages, Send/recieving messages is very slow, It's expensive, It's flimsy, The clock sits right in the middle of the screen on top of your wall paper. The other option is to have no clock
Excerpt: I have owned this phone for a year and have had no problems at all. If folks would remember that it is a cell phone andnot a sledge hammer the phone holds up very well to every day use. Sound is very good as is the signal. I say good job Motorola.
Excerpt: BETTER NOT DROP IT!!! Mine slipped out of my hand - who doesnt drop a cell phone?!?!?! and the glass over the screen SHATTERED!!!! I called motorola and they will not warranty it. So I told them that the design team needed to go back to square one and reboot - cause this is SORRY durability for a cell phone. Phones are dropped a million times a day!!!
Excerpt: The i856 is a solid phone. Build quality is good, although the phone feels a bit light. It was easy to set up and use. The included browser appears somewhat limited in internet use, but you can install Opera mini 3.1 and it improves the internet experience significantly. The screen is clear, bright and easy to read, even in sunlight. Call quality is typical Motorola, meaning that is it strong, loud and clear.
Pros: Nice form factor, easy to use, internet works well with Opera 3.1 mini browser installed, call quality is good.
Cons: Keys are a bit close together, it uses micro usb rather than the ubiquitous mini usb
Excerpt: My boyfriend and I purchased this phone two weeks ago. The first week we had to take it back because the battery cover would not stay on. The week the whole screen is just white. It has not been dropped! The phone will just shut off without warning and the chirp is always messed up. Other then that the ringtones are loud but we couldn't figure out a way to get them from fun for mobile so we just bluetooth them from other phones.
Pros: If you hold the down button on the main screen it will tell you time, battery level, ect...
