My motorola w375 is a sleek silver grey with a nice chunky feel to it. It was passed on to me when my husband decided that he could no longer put up with the size of the buttons on the key pad! He doesnt have very large fingers so I would think that many other people have the same trouble . This proves no problem to my skinny little fingers although it does take a long time to text a message as the phone seems to think for a while whether to move on to the next space or not!
I particularly like the flip up top which, as I work on a boat ,has protected it from the salty enviroment and general bumps and bangs as it always lives in my pocket. The key pad lights up when you open it to show the clearly defined buttons which helps if you have to use it in the dark and one feature that I like a lot is the flashing blue envelope which is displayed on the lid to show that you have received a message so a quick check now and then when noisy engines a running means you dont miss important messages.
I dont need a lot from a mobile ,I very rarely use the camera so this reasonably priced mobile with it´s easy to navigate menu suits me .It does warn you when the in box is full and you must then empty it to receive more texts.
It has now lasted three years and I have become very fond of it,its sort of comfoting knowing it´s always there in my pocket.
I own a pink one of these, and my parents both own black ones (hence why mine is pink, but that's another story). Overall, I'm happy enough with my phone; it was well-priced, its sleek, it has a nice feel, and it's good for making calls. I wouldn't say it was absolutely amazing though, since there are a few things about it I would change.
The Good: It looks nice. This is a bigger deal than it'd appear on the outset, but it's sleek, and a nice shape, and LOOKS like a phone (rather than some alien pod thing that beeps). The screen is a good size, I like the fact that it's a flip phone and thereby eliminates the change of accidentally pushing buttons while it's in your pocket, and it's a decent price for a mobile.
The Bad: You get what you pay for. It's a simple phone, with little in the way of extras (though it does have a camera, so that's a plus point). The on board memory is small, and only allows you to store about 100 texts at any one time - this is for both your outbox and your inbox, and your drafts, etc. The buttons are great at the start, but if you text a lot as I'm prone to do, they have a tendency to crack and weaken, and you'll eventually find yourself pressing the same button ten times to make it type one letter.
Summary: Overall, its a good first or second phone, and there's a lot to commend it, but if you'd like to text a lot or maybe save more messages then this possibly isn't the phone for you.
I bought this phone a couple of yerars ago now, and it's still going strong. When I bought it, it cost me around £50, a good price. Now it's big brother the W377 (virtually identical, except has bluetooth) is around the same price and is still flying of te shelves. I work in a shop and these are one of our top selling mobiles. Firstly, it's a Motorola and I personally think they have the best menus and screen layout of all the brands of mobile. The colour screen on this mobile is faultless and the camera is not bad for snapping things in daylight. The handset comes with a mini USB cable so you can transfer your snaps to your PC or laptop, when you get them up full size they are the clearest pics but not bad at all for the price of the phone. The WAP feature is fast, and allows you to store pages for speed. The handset itself is a good looking flip, with flashing indicators on the top to tell you if your battery is low, you have a text, missed call or incoming call. Smart.
Motorola, the USA based world's third largest mobile phone manufacturer is one of the popular name in cell phone lovers. It has varieties of different phone with lower level medium budget level and higher luxury models.
Here I am going to review a cheap budget phone W375, I will discuss about its design, features with memory, connectivity, design, data and battery back-up etc.
Now the important point of phone is its attractive folding design measured with 99 x 45 x 18.6 mm, 73 cc, and weight is about 88gm. Phone has only single display and if there is any call and you wants to see the caller than u have unfold the phone to see that caller. But is completely made for budget level buyers so that there is no mean to keep double LCD, it may increase its price at all. But the design is very sexy and attractive in this category phone.
Display size is about 128 x 160 pixels, 1.8 inches, in terms of millimeter it is 28 x 35 mm, with TFT display screen, total 65K colors. Screen resolution is not as good as compare to higher 16m colors but it is good enough in its category phone. Display deals better with indoor use but in bright condition there may be some problem but this is a common situation in about all phones.
In terms of memory this phone failed to provide adequate memory, only has 1.5 MB of shared memory. Phone also has a camera but there is no sufficient memory for that and there is no mean of keeping the camera with this type of insufficient memory. I don't know that why every manufacturer try to keep camera in phone without providing enough memory for that. I can say that they are try to make a marketing funda with adding camera and they can say that this phone has camera, but reality is worst when it comes with its memory size.
Connectivity features is also very bad, and this phone only has GPRS and USB connectivity. There is no Bluetooth, no Infrared etc. This type of phones can provide at least Bluetooth or infrared, with its budget status.
Other important feature is its FM radio but it can't support stereo sound, having only mono sound support. But maximum phone also has mono support with its internal speakers and they only can provide stereo sound with compatible handsfree.
Battery back-up is not so good but it is ok with Standard lithium ion battery, 850 mAh (BT50), having about 3 hours of non-stop talktime. Motorola claiming of 7 hours talktime but as practically we can get only about 3 to 4 hours of talktime. Back-up time in FM music is also remains same.
Over -all this phone is a good lower level budget phone, if you don't wants to have much featured phone with high mega pixel camera, high memory support with extra advanced features than it will be better choice for you.
If you want to keep phone only for conversation purpose than this phone is pretty good for you with its attractive folding design and good battery back-up.
Quite a few Motorola mid-range phones have been sucked down into the budget range, either as a planned strategy or lack of market demand and the W375 is no exception. This phone, loosely styled on the successful KRZR K1, offers quite a few slimmed down features but doesn't go quite as far so it is 'no-frills'.
This phone is about as cheap as PAYG gets - about £20 will see you get one. There is a related model - the W377 which is simply an upgrade of this with a few extra features (I'll try to review this if I do manage to get my hands on one).
First impressions of the phone are good. It's actually very slim and does not have a very big footprint. It's also pretty light, too and I am aware that it is available in many different colours in case you don't like the one you get. Externally, the phone has an LCD to the outside, which does not have much use apart from to tell the time, or let you know missed calls/SMS.
Open the flip and you have a nice keypad layout with a 65K colour screen. Now, this is nothing special - the type of screens have been around for some time already. But, we have to remember that this is a budget phone. There is a camera, but only at VGA resolution (that's under 1 megapixel, really). This will only take photos suitable for MMS, not really one to take holiday snaps on.
Actually, this phone wasn't that good. I think the problem with Motorola is that they did not think this through in what they wanted to achieve with this and there are quite a few contradictions here.
The phone is pretty good to use but the battery life is not the best on this. Possibly the screen eats up quite a lot of power, but that is hardly an excuse when seeing other similar phones produce longer battery life. I found myself charging every day - I get quite nervous when the phone is only on one bar of battery.
I have never been a fan of the Motorola OS, so I might be biased, but I found this quite unresponsive. Texting is far from intuitive on it. The internal memory is a shade over 10MB, which is fine for this type of phone - and then Motorola fill up the space with stuff like games, MP3 ringtones and other memory-hungry stuff. I did not find a way to remove the games.
Therefore, having a camera on the phone is pretty redundant. If you have a lot of contacts and SMS messages stored, you might only be able to have 10 or 15 shots in VGA mode stored before you get the 'out of memory' message. Pointless. For the same reason, there is very little point in having MP3 on this, it just eats up valuable space.
The phone also contains no Bluetooth. It would be most handy, if only to send files away to make room for other stuff on the phone. But, no it does not have this - and it hardly costs the earth to put Bluetooth on the phone.
So, you can see what I mean when I say it's not clearly thought out. If I were Motorola, dumping the camera and MP3 stuff, increasing battery life and dropping the price to around £15-20 would have been a better bet, given the absense of a 'no-frills' clamshell phone. The W377 has promised to remedy a lot of the aformentioned faults, but we'll see.
Still, it's a very cheap phone. If you would like to get one, these are available on all networks apart from 3. Just don't expect too much, and even at this price level, I think there are better alternatives.
Motorola is one of the most famous companies all around the world , and when it make a new mobile , it must be incredible one , and that mobile (w375) is a beautiful mobile full of advantages :

Now I have to be honest, I never usually go for Motorola phones and I don't usually buy any this cheap but when I received it I was shocked as its value for money. I paid around 30 pound for the phone a few months ago and I've had no problems what so ever. What's more, even though it only cost 30 quid, it isn't the worst looking phone in the world. In fact when it's closed you'd swear it cost four times as much as it did. HOWEVER do not buy this phone if you want a phone equipped with modern features. The reason this phone is so cheap is because it has been designed pretty much just for texts and phoning. I think the idea behind it is great. I've lost count of how many times I've heard someone say, 'o but I don't want a phone with loads of features, I just want one for texts and phoning'. Motorola have successfully created a neat little phone that'll let you carry out all your basic needs as very little cost. Although there are some down sides to the lack of features. Despite not caring about it when I bought the phone, it's annoying having a phone that doesn't have bluetooth or infrared. This makes it impossible to connect to other phones and means you can only connect to your computer with a cable. There are also so problems with other things that are on the phone. The one thing that bugs me is the amount it lags behind when you text. I text very regularly and when I do I text fast, however the phone doesn't seem to appreciate this and plods along at its own pace which can get very frustrating and means it can take longer than normal to write a text. However this is the only big problem I have with the phone, other features such as the headset and calling are all great and work just as well as on my other phone (Sony Ericsson W810i). Therefore, if you're looking for a phone to carry out basic tasks at a low cost this phone is definitely the one for you. The only warning I have is that the phone is quite slow at times and texts can take a while to write. Apart from this, I'd definitely recommend this phone to people wondering whether it's a good deal.
This is a very well-priced, sleek, sexy phone by motorola. The W375 is slim and very easy on the eyes, with its super light frame weighing only 3.1 ounces and large vivid screen inside. This phone looks more costly than it is and has all the extras that you need, while staying within your budget.
Calendar and Alarm Clock features make it easy to stay on schedule whether for business, school, or life. Speakerphone and the ability to transfer media files via USB is also helpful.
VGA camera with 4x zoom takes great pictures that can be uploaded to your PC or simply saved as a backround. For entertainment, the phone has impressive pre-loaded games, and a built in FM radio, as well as the ability to download songs to your mobile.
The only downside is that the phone does not have bluetooth, but other than that it's great.
