Hello everyone, this my my review of the motorolla w377.
This is a budget flip phone from motorolla which I used to own. And here is the review:
Looks: Personally I think this phone looked very slick. It was covered in this nice looking and feeling see through style plastic, and I was genuinely impressed with the build quality. The picture doesnt show it very well, but the middle bit was a sort of mirror style chrome. Furthermore, the front lights up depending on what is going on (battery life, charging, rings, text messages), which made a sort of beautiful display everytime something was happening.
Functionality: The phone always had a decent signal, and because it could fold in half, it had a very good standby battery life time (because when you shut it, the screen turns off completely). Also, because its a flip phone, you can never miss call somebody. Furthermore, the screen is protected from scratched from keys and other items in your pocket.
Features: The phone had all the basic features, such as an alarm (the alarm was awesome as you could put an alarm for a different volume compared with the volume of the phone, so you could have a max volume alarm when the phone is on silent if you wanted, a feature I really miss these days). But there were limited games (sudoku and tetris, that's all folks!). Also its a budget phone, none of this GPS, 3G or any of that. Strictly texts, calls and stuff like that.
The phone also has a camera, which is pretty grainy to be honest, but still it feels like a good addition to the phone (can't remember the mega-pixels).
Ease of use: The phone is really intuitive to use, and although I never used a motorolla before, I just picked it up and knew straight away what I was doing (unlike other brands. see my review of the lg Cookie). The operating system is responsive, and I dont ever remember waiting for things to happen.
Reliability: This phone was very reliable, except when it had been used for heavy calls. Although the standby battery is good, heavy use and this phones battery do not mix. This is more a phone for the occasional user.
The sound quality was fair, nothing thats going to blow you away, but for this price, it was good.
So the summary:
This phone is almost like a budget motorolla razor to my eye (a friend of mine had one). It doesnt have all the features, isnt pherhaps as good looking, but it is a lot cheaper. If you do not use your phone an awful lot, and do not care so much about features, but want a good looking phone, then I would seriously check this out
Summary: A good phone for those who want a basic one
