Cool Motorola KRZR

Check out the new Motorola KRZR. It's amazing! Apparently, it has a mirrorish front. But I prefer my current black RZR V3, though.

Anyway, this is the Dutch KRZR page. The sound gets annoying after a while, but it's really cool, nevertheless.

This is the US page, with a 360 degree spin.

Re: Motorola KRZR

I had a RZR for a while and I thought it was a great phone. The new one looks nice.

Re: Motorola KRZR

i would never get one. they cram phones with far too much stuff these days, resulting in loads of lag when trying to use it
i have a nokia that calls, txts and takes pics. i never even use the camera on it anyway

Re: Motorola KRZR

Nokia has cool phones, too. I love the design of the RaZR phone. And it's very user friendly, too. It has a lot of options, but they don't get in the way.

You know, Joe Satriani has a Motorola RaZR, too. The same one as me! It's great.

Re: Motorola KRZR

Now here's a phone which seems user unfriendly to me: the pebble. That would slip out of your hands in no time! It looks cool, though.

Re: Motorola KRZR

the KRZR is alright but not my cup of tea. i saw that phone about 12 months ago, being that my cousin works at motorola so he gets all the phones a year or so before they are released. i love the RAZR and won't have anything else. there were issues with them, sure, but they are overall great phones. as with anything else, you either love it or hate it. technology will keep getting better and better.

Re: Motorola KRZR

Motorola tapped into the "cool looks" factor when they released their slim phones. The reason why I think their phones are POS's is because their quality leaves a lot to be desired. To me, a mobile phone has to work everyday no matter what. With the V600 I had, it had nothing but issues left and right. QC on those phones was a mess. If you slightly touched the flip part of the phone while it was ringing, and you would attempt to open the flip, it would send the call to voice mail because the flip was too sensitive to touch. As a temporary fix, I turned the flip feature off so I'd have to open it and hit a button to answer. Then the display would have an incredible lagtime to bring up all the info, so you basically would miss calls because of it. If the day was hot or cold, the display on the front would freeze up and not work right. Sometimes the big display would simply turn white for no apparent reason. Sometimes the phone would turn itself off for no apparent reason while it was fully charged. Did I mentioned that I'd have to charge it every day? If I made or received more than 2 calls, the phone would have to be recharged completely. Signal wise, the phone simply left a lot to be desired. People sometimes couldn't hear me when I answered the phone and vice versa. I had a Nokia phone and I never had a problem with it and I used the hell out of it.

I have just bought a blackjack and I'm pretty pleased with it. I've never had a Samsung phone before and this one is pretty nice.

I know Joe has a razr, and I feel sorry for him. I might like his music, guitars and gear but phones are where I draw the line. I simply hate it when I pay good money for something that doesn't work the way it was intended to.

There's your answer Myst.
