Pocket sized fun

  • Excerpt: Is it me or is it mobile phones general? I really have lost count of the mobiles I’ve had, and had to replace, usually just after the guarantee runs out! Every one of them seems to come equipped with its own inbuilt ‘characteristics’ – intuitive text function anybody? At last, I have found a mobile that suits me (poor misguided fool that I am, I had actually started to believe this).
  • Pros: Small, compact
  • Cons: maybe too small for some people

  • Excerpt: I was desperate to get my hands on the sexy little V3690, so I got around to ordering it in April when my old contract with BT Cellnet ended. I liked my Nokia 3210 as it was very easy to use, but it seemed prehistoric in size compared to the new phones coming on the market at that time. The phone arrived by post (I ordered it via an internet shop) and I excitedly opened the box. It was just what I imagined, small funky looking and looked easy to use from first sight.
  • Pros: Looks good, small and lightweight
  • Cons: Severe lack of ringtones, no text messaging name identification, badly set up voice activation system

Motorola V.3690

Toady, Ciao

  • Excerpt: My first phone was a Nokia 5110 I got it free when I signed up for a one year contract with Vodaphone. THis phone was nothing but trouble from day one. The second day I had this phone the plastic front fell off, so I had to go back and change it for another one. After a couple of weeks the display used to disappear and the phone would turn it's self off. Anyway when the year was up I decided it was worth paying out and getting a decent phone.
  • Pros: Everything about
  • Cons: None

  • Excerpt: Sexy phone. Sorry about the analogy. I have had my V3690 for over a year now, mine doesnt have some of the features that are available now, such as voice activation, but it still works fine. I really like the look of this phone and find it really practical to use. It is really light and can actually be carried easily in a pocket as it is light enough and small enough.
  • Pros: Small, stylish, light
  • Cons: Poor reception sometimes

  • Excerpt: I love this phone. I have to say that I disagree with those that have said that the menu system is hard to suss out. It's not at all, even if you're not a technology buff - I certainly am not yet I can work this phone with great ease. Small and lightweight and scratch resistant, I find this phone highly durable and can survive bumps and knocks that other phone will break after.
  • Pros: Looks great
  • Cons: Not AS feature packed as some other phones

The V.3690

atmity, Ciao

  • Excerpt: Weighing a tiny 82g, this is one of the lightest fones around. It is the best Motorola fone out, but it like their other models has its flaws. It (or a similar variation of it) is used on famous TV shows, take Fraiser for example, it is regarded as one of the best fones around. People want it for it's tiny size and weight, it's so compact that you flip it open to reveal the screen. The smooth silver exterior shows class and style.
  • Pros: Very stylish and compact
  • Cons: Poor features masked by a brilliant exterior

  • Excerpt: This is a fantastic little phone, it is one of the smallest in the world weighing only 82g.It is very small and very stylish. It also has some great feature aswell. Some include vibration alert, voice notes where if you need to make a note of something you just speak into your phone or you can record part of a phone conversation. There is also a quick menu which you can personalize so that you can access different sections of your menu very quickly.
  • Pros: Small, light, great features
  • Cons: not wide range of choice of ringtones

  • Excerpt: The Motorola V3690 is in my opinion a great little phone. It weighs only 82 grams, and has many useful features such as voice activation, silent vibrate and a large capacity phonebook. It comes in four colours, blue titanium black and champagne. The titanium model looks the best in my opinion. The later models of the V3690 also have the useful feature of predictive text input, which nowadays is a necessity for all enthusiastic texters.
  • Pros: small, light, voice activation
  • Cons: a bit flimsy

Its got the looks, but not the brains

  • Excerpt: With the introduction of the wafer thin Ericsson t28 and the much easier user interface of the Nokia, the good looks of the V series somehow continues to win friends. The Motorola v3690 is exactly the same in appearence to its predeccesor, but with a few added features. The V3690 has many useful features such as vibrate alert, voice memo facility, voice dialing, snap open call answering and memo facility. However the V3690 does have its work cut out.
  • Pros: very small, good lokking phone
  • Cons: Lack of features, not easy to use

  • Excerpt: The Motorola 3690 is a very good looking phone, it's light, weighing 83g... But!... it may seem small, and it is!... but it is rather a deep phone, it's not long, it's not wide but it's very deep... Unlike the Sony CMD-Z5 which is thin, short and small, oh yeah and very sexy... The Motorola 3690 isn't that small really... It has a bettery standby time of around 100 hours, a battery talk time of around 180 mins and it takes around 150 mins to be fully recharged...
  • Pros: Looks pretty good
  • Cons: It;s fat
