The positive: The Motorola team has done it again with the Adventure V750. Once more the company has come out with a phone that''s carefully made with the usual user-friendly and easily accessible features expected from Motorola devices. With full network compatibility, superb call and music quality, and the ever popular push-to-talk feature packed into this little phone, we have a hard time finding a reason to not like this mobile device.
The negative: There''s no doubt the Motorola V750 is superb phone, but just like everything else in life, if you look carefully enough, there will always be a flaw or two turning up. Regarding the most popular features on V750, both the speakerphone and push-to-talk systems could be better in terms of loudness and audio quality at times, but this may have been due to spotty reception. Photo and streaming video quality? We''d say about average, but not too bad for a Feature Phone.
Design: The old adage stands firm: If it isn''t broken, don''t fix it, a stance Moto has taken with the Adventure V750, and it is serving them well with this phone. The V750 is a very attractive phone that''s just slightly bigger and heavier than its predecessor, the W755, bearing a striking resemblance with very little difference in design, and that''s to be expected as the V750 sports another signature Razr-based body that''s easily distinguishable anywhere you go. Despite crowd complaints about the similarities to the normal Razr-like look, many are now seeing otherwise, thanks to the design''s familiar sleek lines. There are however some not-so-obvious improvements with the V750 that Moto has managed to pack in. Its rugged workman-like construction offers a solid feel that snugly fits in the palm of your hand. There is also a great convenience factor thanks to the phone''s dedicate music controls and in-your-face crisp external display. The obvious compactness, portability and durability give the V750 an obvious advantage over many of the mobile phones on the market today; especially when it comes to the ability to absorb shock and vibration.
Features: If you like a large contact database, then the V750 is an obvious choice for you, with a phonebook capacity of up to a whopping 1,000-contacts with room in each for 5 phone number entries, two e-mail addresses, and additional notes, this phone definitely packs a punch. The phone allows the user to organise contacts into caller groups, thus pairing them with a photo or one of 20 polyphonic alert tones and ringtones. Other features include vibrate mode, call timers, text and multimedia messaging, call recording, a calculator, a calendar, an alarm clock, a world clock, a notepad, a voice recorder and a speakerphone. Standard fare on these types of phones, but all very convenient nonetheless.
The bottom line: Out of a mark of 10, we''d give the Motorola V750 an 8 for performance, and 9 for design and functionality. This is a great feature phone for the price.
