Motorola A1000 review

 Review: November 2004  
 

Last updated March 2009

Rating: 5 stars

In a nutshell: The Motorola A1000 is a 3G smartphone, designed for business users needing to access email, websites, documents and contacts on the move.



 

Review

The first thing that you notice about the A1000 is how much smaller it is than the A925. It's 25% shorter, 20% thinner, and slightly narrower. Far more convenient for keeping in a suit pocket. The weight has also been slashed dramatically - by over 50g! Apart from the size, there are other cosmetic and minor changes to the external design of the phone.

The screen is the same spec as used on the A925. It's a TFT display with 65k colours, and is large at 4cm x 6cm, with a high resolution of 208 x 320 pixels - the same as the Sony Ericsson P900. The A1000 has a touch screen and supports handwriting recognition - a feature that it shares with the Sony Ericsson P900. The screen is used for most data input, either by handwriting recognition or using the "virtual keyboard" on screen with the help of a stylus. This system works well, and makes text input and menu navigation simple and quick.

With a Symbian 7 operating system, the range of software available for the A1000 is extensive. The phone will sync with Outlook and Lotus Notes, and can be connected to a PC wirelessly by Bluetooth™ or using a USB cable. The A1000 comes with a pre-installed Microsoft document viewer that supports Word, Excel and PowerPoint, as well as PDF documents.

As a 3G phone, the A1000 supports all of 3's video mobile services: video calling, video messaging & downloading video clips. It supports assisted GPS (Global Positioning Services) for enhanced location-based services. It also benefits from high-speed data transfer whilst on the 3G network. The screen format supports widescreen video.

Instead of a single rotating VGA camera, the A1000 has two integrated cameras. A VGA camera points inwards and is used for video calling. An additional 1.2 megapixel camera points outwards, and can be used for taking still shots. The external-facing camera has a 4x digital zoom. This is an excellent camera, although it performs poorly in low light.

Messaging is well-supported, as you would expect, with SMS, EMS, MMS and e-mail fully supported, including support for VPN (Virtual Private Network). The phonebook is large and can handle many different fields, including email, fax, home, work and mobile numbers. You can assign different ringtones to each contact if you like.

The phone supports multi-tasking, so you can make calls whilst using other features of the phone.

Another new feature is the stereo speakers, making the A1000 a high quality MP3 player in addition to all of its other capabilities.

The internal memory of the A1000 has been increased to 24 Mbytes, and this can be expanded by a removable TransFlash™ card (up to 256 Mbytes). This amount of storage should be ample for all kinds of data storage. Another big improvement compared with the A925 is the extended battery life of the A1000. Whilst still poor compared with an average mobile phone, the A1000 definitely has improved battery performance, and may only need charging every 2 days!

One point to note however, is that the phone has a tendency to freeze or even crash, especially when low on memory. We would strongly recommend a memory upgrade if this starts to happen. The phone is also not one of the most durable - the screen and joystick are the components most likely to break, so treat your A1000 with care!

ive had the phone now for well over 4 years, so a good workout! at the time i was looking at the P910i, after which i was shown this one as it was much cheaper at the time. certainly not the worst decision ive made in my life. ive left the phone in the rain once, had a mini-puddle on my screen, let the phone dry naturally, and it worked just as well as before. other times i have dropped it and it just comes back for more. however, maybe due to age, its starting to crash a lot more. if i drop it, it re-boots. camera is poor in low light and at night, but i got used to it and brought a proper camera. it has crashed on me as well when the memory got full, so lesson learnt and not repeated. never has anyone in my family had a phone that has lasted this well, this long, and for that i love it! oh and i have used the word viewer software. its good, but fiddly to get right. now awaiting the a3100!

2 batteries, 3 providers and 3 years later I'm still using my A1000 - There's nothing that's come along which provides a better overall feature set. The phone had a few quirks but almost all of those have been eliminated by (unofficial) firmware upgrades. Between GPS and some cheap navigation software plus the excellent freeware "Metro" package I'm able to get around easily while driving AND navigate fairly effectively using public transport systems in most major towns/cities. Texting is a bit fiddly due to the fidly virtual keyboard, but that's my only major criticism (that and I lost the joystick knob (it works better without!) plus the stylus a year or so ago..) MOTOROLA: when are you going to provide a worthy sucessor to this wonderful tool? mine is rather beaten about, but I love it.

I received this phone as an upgrade on 3. I was new to MDA phones but have really taken to this little beauty and have had it for over 18mths. I have purchesed a new one(ebay). I have found that it does lock up but all you do is buy a transflash card for a tenner and store all your stuff on that. This phone does everything, I can connect via bluetooth to my Kenwood car radio for hands free dialing, very easy to do, just pair it and each time I get in it connects automatically. I concur that this type of phone is very easy to use, you just need to get used to it. It's stereo and I have purchased a converter from Hong Kong, two for a fiver, to plug it into my hifi at work using the built-in MP3 player. Pictures are good the 1.2 camera does well. The contract I have now is £20pm still on 3, 750/150 +50mms +50video +£5 downloads, 3 is the best network there is for overall service and vfm. Even their help desk (India) is much better than it was. They had to get better and they did! All in all get one, if you can.

I have had this phone for 8 months now and have had no problems with it until now, the phone just froze up on me and when I turned it off and turned it back on again nothing happens other than seeing the motorola sign at start up. Which I realise after reading these other reviews was down to lack of memory which I know to be true as I had low memory. I tried to use the SIM in another phone to get to my contacts but as with this phone you can use word or number pin passwords, mine had a word so I couldnt be used on another phone. This is the worst possible time it could have happened, I have friends coming down for the weekend from 200 miles away and no way of contacting them to make arrangements. But anyway other than that the phone is great.

very god phone, with loads of good functions, reasonably quick and battery life is pretty good. Only problem is the middle joystick, it falls off if not treated with a lot of care, but you can get a replacement very easily, very cheaply. Also i recommend buying a memory card if you want to put any songs or videos on as if u fill up the memory too much, it slows the phone down a lot, but with a memory card, this problem is solved.

WOW! This is an upgrade from my Motorola A835 and it is great. It is amazing, has all the great features- 1.3 MP video/picture capture-Full screen vieing option (fantastic!!!) PDA. Easy connection to PC (USB OR BLUETOOTH OR OTHER) (LOUD!) MP3 Player (i don't need my MP3 player anymore!) And way more to much to list..But one of the best thing is storage- You can get up to 1GB storage on it, if u buy the 1GB Card, which is WELL worth getting (Ebay). 256MB is also good! The only let down is the battery (with heavy use it will last about a day or two) But i don't mind that so much i think it is the best phone i've ever owned. If you like gadgets you're going to like this!

I had the A1000 in June 2005, the navigator button has fallen off but that is all. As I was due for a free upgrade on 3 by May 2006, I opted for another A1000! This phone is superb. Has all the things you need and more... As for those who call it a 'brick' well they are ignorant to the fact that this has it all and some. In fact, this mobile is actually thin in comparison to some handsets. Texts are so easy to enter, no more fumbling for letters as you are displayed a whole keypad plus it 'guesses' words to help you. As someone who has regularily upgraded to the next handset, this is one hard to beat. 10 stars, well done Moto.

The phone was great to start with but as time went on it started to fail. For starters the software is hugely un reliable, my phone decided to erase my contacts and messages not once but twice in a month and the operating system gets slow and laggy when you stretch it. The durability of the phone is also rather dubious. The front button comes off easily if your phone lives in your jeans as mine does, whilst the stylus also has a habit of falling apart. This brings me onto further problems with the network. If you want anything fixed on your Motorola A1000 be prepared for a long and complicated process. After several phone calls and endless minuites waiting to speak to someone I found from Motorola that 3 own all warranties for this particular phone and are therefore personally liable for any warranty related repairs. And to add salt to the wound... the warranty doesnt cover the stylus because "it isnt part of the phone". Simply, the Motorola A1000 is a victim of over complication. Whilst the gadgets are all good fun the novelty wares off very quickly. Also, the network that offers the handset "3" leave much to be desired. The customer service is poor and they seemed reluctant to help when problems arose.

The phone is actually quite useful for the Picsel Viewer (which allows you to look - but not edit - Word and Excel files). It does pretty much what it promises to do, although camera/video is not good in low lighting. As a phone I have not had any problems between February and October, then BANG!! The screen froze and that was it - phone dead. 3 refused to fix/replace under warranty and sent their infamous letter which they send when you are 7-8 months into the contract. They offered to fix at a charge (£130) or upgrade (nothing free)!! Many expensive calls later and nothing. Bought a replacemnent on EBAY. When the contract comes up I am back to O2 and will never be a 3 customer again.

Over the years I have used alot of mobile phones. The A1000 is a great phone and has helped me out alot, as I don't need to carry a pda with when I'm away from home. The software available for it is vast, games, books, video players and reminder programs. I have updated the transflash card recently up to 512mb, and now I can and have got a feature film on it. The reception is great as all my other phones have had to be used near a window but this works fine no matter where I am in the house and when I'm out. Clearly a well thought out upgrade to the A925,and smaller is better in my view. Andrew Price.

This is the first PDA type phone that I have ever owned, and I have to say that I do not think I will ever go back to the standard type.. The phone is comfortable to use, is a good weight, and size, easily fitting into either a shirt pocket, or jeans pocket. The screen is clear and the quality of the text to read is more than acceptable. The quality of the sound is also very good,, and the applications that come with the phone make managing your day to day life, much easier. In short, I would strongly recommend this phone to anybody who finds the tools on a standard phone, restrictive, and anybody who likes to have a bit of fun playing with their phone.. LONG LIVE THE MOTOROLA A100Ö..

I have had the A1000 for about a month and I am satisfied with it. Its size and weight is just right and the introduction of the picsel viewer is a great help, the dual speakers give clear sound when listening to music and the three services aren't too bad, you can send e mail. However the A1000 fails in its camera quality it is supposed to be 1.3 MP but other phones with the same standard such as the Samsung D500 are twice as better, the quality of the MP4 player it is said to have is terrible and I we were led to belive that you could edit word docs but you can only veiw them. Overall it is an excellent phone which sets the bar with most of the top of the line PDAs on the market. I am interested to see what the improvements are on the A1010.

i think this phone is brilliant, mp3 is outstanding, the way you can draw/write notes in different colours etc, add any music/picture/video/microsoft word files from your pc using the software and the usb lead. With the photos you can edit them by adding funny drawings and frames you then can transfer the pics onto the memory card and get them developed. Games are amazing aswell if you get the right ones the graphics are as good as gba on some games (lock n load, rally). if on 3, mtv and comedy vids are really good aswell. the only doubt of it is the size its bigger then all new nokia and motorola models but its a phone for me so size dont matter.i myself havent had any tech fault whatsoever,

A year ago i started a contract with 3 with a Motorola A925, this i found to be an interesting phone capable of lots interesting features, it also had a lot of quirks, the battery life was short, but i still managed to keep it working for 12 months. Just recently i have upgraded to the A1000, very pleased so far, it has only locked up once so far. My other half also has an A1000, in the early days she had many problems of loosing signal,dropping calls and locking up.This phone has since been reflashed which has stopped the phone dropping calls, and she was given an updated CD, we removed the old software installed the new. Now all the problems have disapeared, appart from the odd lockup when you ask the phone to do alot. My phone i noticed is the modified version and software, so as yet i have had no problems. It really is a fantastic piece of kit, "if you know how to use it" I would never swap back to a button mobile again. Can't wait for Moto and 3 to get the A1010 on the U K market.

The Motorola A1000 phone is fantastic in so many ways. The camera is pretty good (especially outside), the MP3 player is great, the PDA functions are great, it looks good and it plays great games. BUT it is very unreliable. In particular, the screen is very fragile and I've had one break within weeks. In addition (and as I now realise from other reviews, is common) the phone crashes when the internal memory is full (and you can't repair it yourself). All of this is made worse by 3's abbysmal customer service. Dreadful, unhelful, slow, call-centre from hell customer service. Don't get an A1000 on 3 UK. In fact don't get any phone on 3 UK.

I bought this thinking it'd be like my old Sony-Ericsson P800. It's not a patch on it. It's already broken and has never performed very well as a phone. To be brutally honest, once the "oh, wow" factor has worn off it's just an example of a badly made product further screwed up by three mucking about with it's software. Three have further annoyed me by taking 10 days to deliver it then refusing to replace it as I have to report any problems within 7 days of ordering it. The Three network is fine, I think. Their customer service stinks. Buy any phone from a highstreet shop, at least then you can walk in a hand them the phone for repair and get a loan phone.

It happen to me in Shanghai, Shenzhen, Hong Kong, Philippines, Malaysia and Singapore. Time, I guess, for another visit to Motorola.

If you want a phone don't buy it, if you want to impress your mates with all it's features OK go ahead. Totally unreliable, drops calls all the time, turns itself off and on at will. Battery life useless, I get about 2 days on standby, camera worse than useless in low light. Currently my phone is back for repair for the second time in a couple of months.Restiction of the 3 network makes surfing pointless. Yes this phone is packed with features but not one of them is any good except maybe the MP3 player but, hey, with Ipods about who cares..

I received this phone as an upgrade to my old A835. It was long awaited and I loved the look of it on screen when browing for my new phone. It was great when I picked it out of the boxed and found out it was smaller that I had thought! My friends have big smart phones this was half the size of theres oh and lighter. The Symbian system put me off at first as I was expecting PocketPC but after remembering my old Psion Series5mx I got use to it again, although it has changed just a little since then. The phone is light slim and looks very good. The battery life appears to be very good at the moment the camera is good with 1.2megapixels but not great with low light (seems to be the same with all Motorolas). Overall I'm really happy with the phone, it has bluetooth so I can connect to my laptop or Desktop PC and usb connection if I want a faster transfer. I've always had Motorola phone and they've always had problems after about a year so lets hope this one works for longer, I love it!

Well this phone is really amazing...if you understand how it works. As it combines alot of things, all in one, it is so sophisticated that one needs to study it to go well with it. The best thing to do to avoid sudden crash is to expand its memory with atleast 128mb memory card. You can install as many softwares as you wish. For me I have dictionaries, ebooks (about 80),and others that are not in eform. The picture quality is some how average particulary in dark. It looks great, and works great so far.

I have had this phone a week and I am delighted with it. Its true, it is not just a simple phone - I don't think it ever tried to be. The sound quality is way superior to the LG U8110 I had previously, the battery life is excellent. I have sync'ed with Lotus Notes. The menus are SO intuitive, you just play about with it and most of the time your instinct is right - being an Engineer, that's what I often judge electronic goods by. The screen is very clear, the sound is more realistic and it is noticeably quicker (and more informative) when downloading 3 web pages than the U8110. It doesnt 'cling on' to a 3G signal when it is virtually unuseable like the 8110 did. The free Bluetooth headset is still to arrive, so I cannot rate that, but overall its the best phone / PDA I have ever owned well done Moto!

Multimedia device with bright screen? Hello Moto Hello (that's the devices way of saying yes) Fast processor and ability to run a wide range of applications? Totally. Is it good for the internet? Pretty good. Is it a phone? Sort of. In a "stand still and use my stylus" kind of way. This phone is totally impossible to use on the road, if your walking down the street or if your doing anything where you arn't sitting still. And the messaging is horrible. You have to type on a tiny bitty qwerty keyboard - I have no idea why they didn't add a keypad and predictive text capability. I have already called multiple people by mistake, accidently sent a personal message to 3 people instead of 1 - very easy to do considering if you slip with your stylus it selects multiple people at once. Does it have big, bold advertising screens linking you to sites where you can download latest ringtones, games and the latest news? Sure does. On it's home screen? You bet. Can you hit these accidently? All the time. Can you turn these intrusive messages off? Not without running a crack - and they are disabled at best. Unacceptable in my book. The AGPS takes about 10 minutes to get a lock, the camera is hopeless indoors (but great outside), the calender is nowhere near as good as my iPaq, the audio quality shrill (via the headphones) and the phone drops out all the time is multiple places. Looks like we still need two devices afterall.... atleast on the 3 front.

Ok, this phone is very misunderstood, the instruction manual really needs an update as many of its tricks have been left out. Yes it has its drawbacks but has many positive things going for it. I've read all the complaints of it falling apart, locking up, slow to respond, wiping the memory etc.... well the bottom line is this. I repair/unlock phones for a living, I've seen and worked on almost all modern phones right back to the early motorola bricks....The A1000 is a great phone, the three network does limit its 3G capability, so come on three open up the walled garden to the www... The bluetooth on the A1000 is great and works well with other phones and devices, the camera is average and nowhere near the quality of the Nokia 6630 or the Sharp GX30. The PDA is comparable to the Sony p900. Build quality is good, I suspect a few users are a little heavy handed. The screen is identical to the Sony P900. Locking up problems are due to memory overload, my advice is to buy a 256 memory card and store all the music/vids/pics on that, leaving the phone memory fairly clear, this will speed up the phone and stop the crashes, two mp3's take up around 14mb... always back up your contacts no matter what phone you use. All in all the A1000 is a capable phone comparable to the Sony P900 and at a much better price, very visual lighting adds to its appeal. Don't get many of these in for repair but loads for unlocks. Other phones reviewed, Sony P900, Nokia 6630, NEC 616V, LG U8120 U8138.

I worked for 3 for 2 years, and this is the best BUSINESS DPA phone I've ever used. I'm now on Optus (2nd largest carrier here) with my new company and the service on 3 in every way (apart from the helpdesk) was better - calls, voicemail, directory enquiries etc - all better on 3. I've been made to use a Windows Smart fone for the past 2 months - what a dog by comparison. All these people here whinging about the A1000 not being as good as their old handset need a check-up from the neck-up - this is not the same as 'just a phone'. If all you want is a phone to make calls and send SMSs, don't buy an A1000. However, if you want to have your emails from your PC, your calendar from your PC all sync'd up all day, PLUS your personal email account alongside them, PLUS able to browse the internet and buy/sell on ebay and get google all on your phone PLUS have maps and GPS working, then get a life - get an A1000. The Bluetooth is superb, the voice activate dialling is a license saver, the menus are SO intuitive and easy by comparison to a Windows CE device. After 8 months of use, I've never had my A1000 lock-up, reset (unless I dropped it - twice) and I've never had it display a message "SORRY - THE CALL COULDN'T BE ANSWERED, THERE WAS AN ERROR" when I tried to get an incoming call - my windows fone did it all the time - there really is no comparison. If you want email, web and applications, get one of these. If you want to make calls and sms from a keypad - don't. It's that simple, if you confuse your use, then it's YOUR FAULT - not the phones. And my final point about such a great phone - if you don't like your A1000, sell it to me! They're great and I'll have as many as I can get! jeff_coleman@optusnet.com.au

Or, you may have a phone that will never be the same again. For 3 network, no access to general internet - only 3 network. Otherwise, reception not bad where I am. The joystick button has broken and keeps falling off - happened within first week of owning. Good luck with a poor purchase if you had the misfortune to buy one.

I've had the A1000 since December last year and used to think it was wonderful. That is until it started crashing and loosing all of the photo's etc I had stored on it. Normally when it crashed it would restart and everything would still be there but twice it's lost everything. Since then it's been back to 3 three times and I'm using a loan phone just now until I get a brand new A1000 as the old one is totally goosed. I had to angle the charger and the phone over a pen with weights on each end to charge it and then it stopped taking a charge completely (and that's been fixed twice) then the charger took out the bottom of the phone with it when i removed it. Unfortunately my insurance means I only get the same phone - lets hope the software's been updated and this one works better!

It's a good usable phone. The facing camera is better than the rear.

The only thing I hate about this phone is the speed that it does things. I wish it had a faster processor but it's got a 168MHz CPU which does well for standard stuff. The AGPS is very poor compared to dedicated recievers. If I had a choice I'd still get a XDA IIi anyday.

Well i cant compare with previous phones ive had because they have never been this advanced, but i got to say that i was a dissapointed. A bit of advice for anyone who is going to buy these type of phones, check everything before you buy. The dealer i bought it from ONESTOPPHONESHOP who's name i do not want to mention offered me a special deal on the three network. They will give me back moneY every three months to cover the cost of the amount they showed as line rental, because threee would charge me more, and there is so much paperwork involved they are proably hoping that no-one will bother. They also gave me a free bluetooth headset which i think was made from paper. I only bought the phone because of how good it sounded but if you are buying a phone from the back of a newspaper ad be careful. And on top of that the phone was dissapointin, the button fall of twice in one week and i had to empty and search my hoover to find it.The phone always crashes, and the camera quality is no good and without a memory card not much photos can be stored. If you can make full use of the fone its excellent, provided it works and only if you realy need all those extras then its agood phone, only on another network!!! And last of all i accidentally cracked the screen!so if anyone wants to buy all the spares then contact me on jas_binda@hotmail.com

IT'S LOTS OF THESE LITTLE THINGS THAT , AS YOU GET TO KNOW THE PHONE , YOU GET REALLY DISAPOINTED WITH. i came from orange and a nokia (house brick(ok smaller than the 3 phone)) 3330 and even that has a better menu system and a more workable system than this thing. if you want lots of gismo's and no substance then this is the phone for you but if you're like me and just want a phone that works then i suggest you give this one a WIDE BIRTH!

I have had two different phones from Three, they have all gone wrong and after being fixed gone wrong again! Three sent me this A1000 as a free upgrade.

I do not use the phone that much, but have to charge the bloody thing up every second day! The PDA function seems to be good, I had a Nokia Communicator once, and the Motorola calendar is much better. I think this phone would be great on a different network, but it is spoiled by being locked to Three. The only good thing about three is that you can get loads of minutes free in your tarrif.

For about 65% of the places I go, call's are near on impossible. The e-mail is useful, but 3 do charge you for using this separatly (bless them...). Any problems you may as well take it to McDonalds, as you just get transfered arround a switchboard merry-go-round in India where the operators have even less idea than I do of how to solve the problems. The Button did fall off the front, but luckily I found it and glued it back on. The finnish and build isn't very strudy and I have the impression it won't last the 12 months it's on contract. It has done the boot up thing a couple of times, but in it's defence it has sorted itself out and does seem to work ok. Software for linking to the PC is useless, and a pain to use, and now seem's to make windows think the a1000 is a new modem and messes up my settings when I use it. Makes a half decent MP3 player and with the 256MB expansion card holds plenty of tracks, shame again that you have to buy this separate.

I love the phone as a phone - it does all the things I want plus a few I'm not that bothered about. But it is suffering more and more from errors (I've had it since December 2004). It crashes often, losing the homepage GUI which means I have to do the Windows thing of switching it off and on again. It very often fails to connect to outgoing calls or take incoming calls, even though the signal strength (according to the handset) is fine. Or it fails to pick up signal in places where I know I usually get 5 bars (e.g. central London - and no, not in the dead bits, but in places like Trafalgar Square). Or it tells me that video calling is not available, when I'm only trying to make a voice call. Again, I have to keep doing the Windows-style reboot. Plus - and this is minor but irritating - the silver coating is rubbing off the handset lock slide switch, showing bare red plastic underneath. As yet, it hasn't lost all my contacts, but if it does, I will cry.

This phone has really let me down! I expected a lot and for the first week it delivered, then little things just started getting worse and worse To start with it was just the phone's slowness that annoyed me, but things soon changed. My phone hardly works at all now, it reboots itself constantly, sometimes never fully swithing one and leaving the reboot loop. About a week ago the phone crashed wiping all my memory. I could have lived with this but it also wiped my sim card of all contacts and that is just not on. Backup your address book I hear you cry........... I WISH. The software that comes with the phone is TERRIBLE, as already said, its so clunky and I can never get it to work with the USB cable. I also hate Three's walled garden approach but have learned to live with it; some of the free content they provide (news and sport) is actually quite comprehensive and for the price, I can't really fault the network The phone however, is terrible. Don't waste your time and money. Stick with the Nokia, seems like they know how to do things properly!!!

Generally I agree with most reviewers here. The A1000 is an excellent device (can't write "phone" because it is much more than that). The pros include size, battery life (compared to earlier/other 3G pda/phones), versatility and price/performance. The cons are mainly the lousy camera, slow and cumbersome cable sync (for transferring audio and video content), and lack of built in fast dialling (e.g. no speed dial buttons).
