Excerpt: "Having being one of the first in the country to own a V3688 I have to say looks far out weigh practicality. The menu is long winded, requiring up to 10 key presses mearly to access a user in your phone book the phone is tiresome to use. Flimsy and prone to failiure I can safely say the least practical phone I have ever owned. No repair services locally, the phone must be returned to the manufactureer for any fault. No loan phone provided, expect to ...
Pros: Small, pocketable and posy (especially in Titanium)
Excerpt: "...got my hands on a Motorola V3688? More than ever before! It looks cool, but too damn small for a start. Lose it in a heartbeat! Though for some, the size may be a plus. Not for me though. I returned it after just one day. It was sooooo boring for a phone. Crap menu, pain in the bottom (see I'm being polite!) to navigate around and even though the vibra is quite powerful, I still didn't feel it go off in my pocket. It doesn't ring loud enough ...
Cons: toom many to say, enough to send it back after a day
Summary: "Its tiny" - "i've had bigger bits eh corn on ma crap" a wise fat man once said. And it is very appropriate for this phone. The Main feature of this phone is obviously is size. It fits in almost any pocket and still gives some space. Its not too heavy and doesnt get in your way. You have the good choice of a vibration function, which can be useful when you wish to be that little bit more discreet.
Excerpt: "...a week, but congrats to Motorola because after a seven day "resting" period it amazingly went back on!! Amazed? I would have been, had I not have been drunk. So reliability must fly high here. ...
Pros: VERY reliable and robust, despite its diminuitive size .
Cons: Doesn't have the greatest navigation and set up controls .
If I was a tortoise I'd make love to this phone !!

Summary: Excuse the title but it got your attention didn’t it, if you saw the advert you know what I'm on about, if you didnt .... well, you probably think I'm a bit strange !!! This used to be my “going out” phone as it was small enough to fit in my trouser pocket and had a vibrate alert which meant I never missed a call in a loud pub or club.
Summary: Ok with motorola you don't get all the features of a Nokia but this is my 6th motorola phone and I think it is great to say the least. Even though the ring tones are virtually the same since my TAC classic in 1995, I don't care. Motorola make brillant phones and so far I haven't strayed from the brand.
Sexy without substance... v. poor features prevail

Excerpt: "...apart - I'd never buy Motorola again after this phone. I am also trying to be constructive here, so ending on a positive note - Motorola have now released new (hopefully improved) models of this phone, which may have addressed/improved these negative points... so it's also best to check out other Ciao member's reviews of the newer models of this phone. ...
Pros: Small and sexy looking
Cons: Lack of features, extremely poor for text messaging and bad phonebook feature .
Excerpt: "Boasting the lowest measured SAR radiation value on the market to date with a figure of 0.02, makes me want to buy one, source: www.cellular.co.za/health/radiation_gsm_phone_a-to-z.htm Contrast that to Sony CMD Z5 at 1.06 - which is 53 times more. Nokia 6210 at 1.19 - roughly 58 times a higher figure. Ericsson T28 at 1.49 I do like my gadgets and functions, and I do think other phones do serve me better than the V3688 which is also ...
Summary: I was given a Motorola v3688 phone for use with my one2one SIM card. At first I was thrilled, it’s so small you can easily put it in your pocket so even when you’re out without a bag you can still take it with you. It’s also great when you’re in pubs and clubs, if you can’t hear it ring you can certainly feel it vibrating! But after a few months the novelty started to wear off.
Pros: vibrates, pocket-size
Cons: short battery life, buttons too small, bad menus
