The Motorola KRZR K1m is a gorgeous phone with cutting-edge design and features like EV-DO internet connection, video streaming, MP3 capabilities, and two full-color screens. With its shiny metallic-glass front thin design, the K1m flip-phone is a fashion statement. The phone also includes a 1.3-megapixel digital camera with video capture and playback, innovative touch sensor music, integrated GPS navigation, Bluetooth 2.0 technology, Over-the-Air Synchronization and expandable memory up to 1 GB through optional microSD cards. The open K1m feels very comfortable against the ear, and because it's so narrow, it's easy to hold. The K1m’s display is very bright and clear, and has a wide viewing angle. The comfortable keypad has a cool aqua-blue backlight. Multimedia is where the KRZR K1m falls apart. The reception and sound quality of the KRZR is good. Voices are clear and had no interference or static. However, if a user’s hand completely covers up the bottom of the phone that houses the internal antenna, there will be a drop in call quality. The earpiece speaker has eight levels of volume, with medium or medium-high sounding best. The speakerphone is clear and not distorted as long as the volume is not turned up to the highest setting. Users can also close the flip while using the speakerphone. The battery delivers 3 hours of talk time and 6 days of standby.

Not only is the 1.3-megapixel camera hardly cutting-edge, but it also lacks a flash. The phone also has decent MP3 capabilities. Users may buy and download songs directly from VCAST, or upload files from a PC via USB cable. However, users may not use iTunes files, but must upload songs from a Windows computer via Windows Media Player 10. VCAST's video menu took a long time to load on the phone, the interface seemed sluggish, and videos were very choppy. Plus, while the V CAST Music store works smoothly, users have to open the phone and click at least three times before music starts playing. The external touch-sensitive buttons are pretty, but they can be both not sensitive enough. However, the speaker is loud and games played adequately well. The phone uses a USB jack for headsets, but comes with an adapter for standard 2.5-mm headsets. The new KRZR K1m is an improvement on the previous KRZR, but there are other slim phones available with better multimedia options.

  • Krzr K1 problem

    Has anyone ever experienced this problem with the Krzr K1? Large flip screen turns white at times, while the small outer screen shows date and time just fine. The phone is able to make out going calls; but incoming calls are intercepted by voicemail. Time for a new phone huh!
