This phone is awful

Bee Sneeze, Phone Arena
21 September 2010
  • 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.
  • 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...

  • 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.

Love the i856 Debut

Cyberstoic, Phone Arena
1 January 2010
  • 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.
  • 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

Moto Debut Sucks

Rhonda, Phone Arena
24 November 2009
  • 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.
  • Pros: If you hold the down button on the main screen it will tell you time, battery level, ect...
  • Cons: The phone has too many flaws.

VIVISWORK, MercadoLibre

  • Conclusion: Vale la pena, pero por el diero que cuesta -y por tratarse de Motorola- esperaba MÁS.....
  • Pros: Compacto, Moderno diseño, Bastante robusto (estructuralmente), Cuenta con repuestos asegurados!!
  • Cons: Software "lento", Muy frágil en lo estético, Pocos recursos
