motorola i850

Posted on: May 30th, 2009 by Jessica Mesick

The good: it's good for general functions, basically calling and direct connect. The speakerphone is loud and clear (though lately it's gotten worse and has been dropping calls). You get used to the interface after a while.The bad: I have to charge it every night; Motorola is different from any phone I'd used before (I once silenced it and it took me a month to figure out how to unsilence it, I'll admit I wasn't good with phones then) and the camera isn't really that great. Texting is annoying and sometimes the phone won't be able to retrieve a text. The clip it comes with tends to drop the phone if you lean over on the side you've clipped it to.Summary: I live on a farm and I've beaten this phone to what should have been it's death. I dropped it seven feet to a concrete floor, and all it did was flip open and scratch. I accidentally dropped it in my horse's food bucket, he threw it out, and still it works. It has scratches and the silver/grey has rubbed off in places, but I have dropped it numerous times. I know other people who had the same phone were having problems with it and I may have just gotten lucky. All in all, I wouldn't recommend this phone to anyone who is a heavy phone user; but for those people who just need a phone to keep in touch, it should work fairly well.

Its not worth the money!

Posted on: March 18th, 2009 by J S

The good: sleek.The bad: Very bad reception. If it is at home, highway, city, etc... My last service was so much better. Be very careful, and never drop this phone. You Will have to replace it! This IS NOT a durable phone! Not worth the price.Summary: The life of the battery is terrible. I had to replace mine on a brand new i850 with 7 months. The buttons stick. If you read the comments on here, they were posted months and years ago. Things have gotten a lot worse with this phone. Beware!

Easy to Use but not a durable phone

Posted on: November 27th, 2006 by Anonymous

The good: The color screen is impressive and the keys are easy to use.The bad: The exterior of the phone does not hold up to the wear and tear of use. The silver coating rubes of and reveals the black under coat. The nextel direct connect button tends to stick a lot as well.Summary: The overall phone is average. The camera works well and the keys are easy to use. Problem is the clip tends to rube of the silver coating on the phone and the phone does not save your photos to the sim card.

Why I like the i850

Posted on: October 4th, 2006 by Anonymous

The good: Has a lot of functions that we use everydayThe bad: It is hard getting used to the small size phoneSummary: We like the phone as it has a lot of functions that we use daily. It also has good reception which makes it fantastic as we were tired of the in and out conversations.

Connection

Posted on: August 22nd, 2006 by Rochelle Warren

The good: Awesome looks and durability. Very crisp, clear sound and smooth operation.The bad: I lose signal almost everywhere around my town. I don't like how it drops calls. I also find it hard to get signal in my own home.Summary: I like the look and over-all operation of this phone. It has some really great features as well and fun games too. But I do not like the reception I get and I think it's from the antenna.
