Excerpt: First, the battery life on this phone is horrible. If you are planning to play tiger woods golf, only plan on playing it for less than an hour or so. This goes for talking on the phone too. Second, I�ve had more then 3 people tell me, while using this phone, that they hear an echo when they speak.
Excerpt: I work for a wireless company in the Technical arena. I purchased the Z-800 excited about the color screen and the features that it offered. Shortly after receiving the new mobile I started to learn what it could and could not do. There were too many shortcomings for the phone.
1) Microphone placement.
2) Sound quality of speaker.
3) Phone will not notify of a new voice mail message after the first alert. (This was the main reason the phone was returned.
Excerpt: I must say this phone is the best verizon has come up with. The unique Japanese phone antenna placement is what I've been waiting for on American phones. I know people say it's awful and it's Japanese style is well... annoying but for those people who want to be different, this is the best phone.
Excerpt: This is a pretty OK phone. One of my relatives has it and i decided to test it out. Pros, color display, antennae placement it cool, (more phones antennas should be placed on the top, i think) and BREW. Cons, battery life and display is weak. Overall, this is an average phone by audiovox or sharp. i really enjoy the antennae placement because lots of cell phones in japan look like the sharp Z800.
