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.
Pros: Small, pocketable and posy (especially in Titanium)
Excerpt: Well, how disappointed was I when I 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.
Cons: toom many to say, enough to send it back after a day
Excerpt: I was really happy with my phone. It was a freebie from The Carphone Wharehouse (themselves very helpful I must say) and looks the part. Small, sexy and compact, lightweight and with a silent vibrate (we ALL love them :) ). The features were maybe a little limited, and the navigation controlls definately could be better. The way that you set it up is not ideal, but I find the sheer look, size and feel (not to mention price) of it to more than make up.
Pros: VERY reliable and robust, despite its diminuitive size .
Cons: Doesn't have the greatest navigation and set up controls .
Excerpt: I was at first attracted by the cute body structure of the phone and I love the sliver colour! I simply think the design of this phone After using it for a while, I have not only realise that it is a nice looking phone, but good in quality too! I have had this phone for about a year and a half now, after all the heavy usage and my constantly careless treatment, by dropping it on the floor. It is superising that it still work perfectly!!! :) Honest!
Sexy without substance... v. poor features prevail

Excerpt: I bought this mobile in Dec 2000. I must admit the reasons I did so were purely superficial, as I bought it on it's looks and size alone. After over a years heavy use - I can now conclude that this mobile is extremely poor, due to it's lack of features. I paid £300 for it and within a month the poor reception, made me regret not fully researching phones for features.
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.
Excerpt: The Motorola V.3688 is yes one of the cuteset phones on the market and and for the price it really ought to be. I got mine for £260 on virgin mobile. This phone is good for the people who wanna be stylish as it really is cute (so cute a baby tortoise gets the horn for it) the lack of features on this phone really is annoying.
Pros: sexy, cute, small, light, stylish
Cons: You do not get caller identity on text messages which causes a lot of frustration, there is a lack of ring tones, if you have the phone on vibrate and ring when a text message comes through it only vibrates,
Excerpt: When I first saw the Motorola v.3688 I loved the look of it, but vowed never to buy one myself. I felt that any phone with moving parts like that was asking for trouble. Well the size got the better of me and I changed my mind. Dependant on what it is you want in a phone, the v.3688 can be a pain or a blessing, for me it was the latter.
Pros: Small, compact, Long battery life, Vibra Alert
Excerpt: The tiny little brother of the original motorola startac that looks very small and very cute. It is surprising that in the world where everyone wants to be big, the world of technology tries to make everything small. This phone s probably too small for some and it is relatively easy to loose. In addition, some people might find it quite hard to actually either press the keys or hold it up to your head to make a call.
Excerpt: After seeing the advert of this phone with the Toitoise, I just had to buy one to see if it really does have that effect !! I just need to find a toitoise now !! Anyway, the Motorolla V3688 is a good buy, obviously the main attraction is the small design of the phone, making it easy to slip into your trouser pockets when you don't have a jacket and things like that.
