Motorola MPx220 review
| ||Review: February 2006
Last updated June 2006
In a nutshell: A smartphone based on Windows Mobile™ software.
The Motorola MPx220 is an updated and much improved version of the MPx200 smartphone. Motorola have opted for Windows Mobile™ software to power their smartphones instead of the Symbian operating system used by Nokia and Sony Ericsson. The interface style of Windows Mobile™ is very much like Windows on a PC, so will be familiar to users. It is a graphically-based interface designed to be both user-friendly and to enable a range of powerful software to be used, including Pocket Internet Explorer® and Pocket Outlook®.
The MPx220 has a good range of features, including a 1.2 megapixel camera, video camera and MP3 player. It comes with an inbuilt memory of 32 Mbytes plus an expandable memory card slot, and has good connectivity via Bluetooth and USB. ActiveSync® PIM Synchronization with a PC is supported. These features go a long way to fixing the problems with the MPx200, and the MPx220 is a much better phone. It's lightweight for a smartphone and has the benefit of being quadband. However, the phone is very slow, has a tendency to freeze or shutdown, has an unfriendly menu and the camera is rather poor considering that it has a resolution of over one megapixel. Motorola/Microsoft need to work on the operating system before a truly successful smartphone is going to emerge.
Motorola MPx220 features include:
- Windows Mobile operating system
- 1.2 megapixel camera with 8x digital zoom
- Video recording
- Internal display: TFT, 65,000 colours, 176 x 220 pixels
- MP3 player (Windows Media® player)
- Speech independent voice recognition
- Handsfree speakerphone
- Messaging: SMS, MMS, email, instant messaging
- Predictive text: iTap™ with T9 emulation
- MP3 ringtones
- Downloadable themes (ringtones, wallpaper & screensavers)
- Java games: embedded & downloadable
- Pocket Internet Explorer®
- Pocket Outlook®
- Phonebook (unlimited entries)
- Picture caller ID
- Personal organiser functions
- Memory: 32 Mbytes plus expandable memory card (MiniSD™card)
- Connectivity: Bluetooth, USB
- Vibration alert
- Quad band
- Size: 48 x 100 x 24 mm
- Weight: 110g
- Talktime: 440 minutes
- Battery standby: 260 hours

The review above is about right. It is a slow phone . Camera is poor.
Menu is long winded. Speakerphone is poor Think motorola have gone for
style. It is a little old fashioned but attractive.

I have had my MPx 220 for about three months now and I really like it.
The downfall I have is somethings are hard to figure out how to use
and there is so many ways to connect and hell I just want to be able
to use yahoo and can't figure that one out lol but anyway all in all
it has met my needs. Good reception and everyone seems to have battery
issues I do not have that trouble but I do have the issue of can't hardle
hear when talking on it.

I HAD PURCHASED THIS PHONE IN THE YEAR 2007 THROUGH AN INTERESTING ADVERTISEMENT
FROM TIMES OF INDIA, BANGALORE. FROM THE BEGINNING I HAD BEEN FACING
PROBLEM OF BATTERY BACKUP AND CHARGING. I HAD TRIED MY LEVEL TO REPAIR
THIS MOBILE THROUGH AUTHORIZED SERVICE PROVIDER AND EVEN GOING TO THE
COMPANY'S BANGALORE OFFICE DIRECTLY. BUT NOBODY HELPED ME. THE ONLY
ANSWER I GOT FROM ALL OF THEM THEY CANNOT SERVICE THIS PHONE SINCE THE
SAME IS NOT LAUNCHED IN INDIA. PURCHASED AT A COST OF RS.10200/- AND
PLANNING TO SELL AT RS.1000/-. THIS IS THE GREATEST MISTAKE I EVER COMMITTED

I want to say, that if you like a heavy and big Smartphone, so its your
choose Moto MPx220. Phone is really desgined well, only the problem
that frequently metts is the charger slope, which time by time is not
working. Another bad side is that calling voice is in low level. From
my individual use I can say that this phone is really good one and you
are not becoming borried using it. Voice Display Keyboard Battaery Life

Just purchased two and generously gave one to my wife. She loves hers.
My phone however is gets pathetic coverage and poor battery life - sounds
like I bought a bad apple but am able to get it replaced. I must say
though that the Motorola is better equipped and nicer to handle than
any Nokia I have owned.

Having hastily sold my Mpx200 last year after owning for only a few
weeks, due to battry life and poor reception, I eagerly bought the Mpx220
thinking things would be a whole lot better. Ouch not so. Firstly let
me say the phone is lovely the operating system is great, and I have
no complaints there. Its just the battery life issue. If I switch Blue
tooth on it discharges too quickly. Last night I completed a charge,
did not use the phone and 6 hours later I got the warning message, battery
is low. If I could sort this problem out I would enjoy using it.

The problem with this phone is it seems to be built for the computerphile.
Your grandma would hate this phone but if you are reasonably intelligent
and enjoy working on computers you will like this phone. The MPX220
is loaded with features and, more importantly, hasn't been locked down
like many other phones. A major complaint on my last phone was the inability
to use an MP3 file as my ring tone. Happily this is not a problem on
this phone. I haven't experienced any of the charging or microphone
issues mentioned here but I've only had the phone a month. I did purchase
the 3 year warranty ($9 - a bargain) so if I do have any trouble I should
be covered. Camera: Cell phone cameras ALWAYS suck. If you want a camera
don't buy a cell phone instead. The problem with cameras in cell phones
is mostly aperture-related. You cannot space the lens and CCD far enough
apart to get a good picture. This is an superior phone and is an excellent
choice for business. The international capabilities and the ability
to sync to your PC is invaluable. Bluetooth functionality is great except
for the inability to use voice commands. The MP3 player is nice for
the traveler. As stated earlier, this phone is not made for less technical
users but even a novice user would enjoy the capabilities of this phone
with some reading and practice.

My Wife and I bought an MPx220 each as we wanted compatible Windows
Mobile Phones. We preordered these when they first hit the UK market
on the basis that they were incredibly feature-packed. We also had an
MPx200 which is an excellent phone just lacking in features. I wish
we hadn't bothered. We were plagued with problems from day 1. Mostly
we had charging problems. One of the phones would only charge from USB,
not mains, then the USB charging stopped working. It went back and we
got a replacement. That worked for a few weeks and then stopped charging,
we took it back and were told that it wasn't covered because we had
caused the damage due to fluid ingress. What a load of nonsense, there
was no fluid ingress, the internal connector was sheared off due to
the poor build quality. The sound was virtually non-existant and almost
impossible to hear it ring. The bluetooth doesn't work properly and
the camera is badly substandard despite it's features. This phone is
a piece of junk and has put me off motorola for good. Their customer
support helped in that respect too, as they were totally unsupportive.
I've gone back to my faithful SPV E200. Don't get this phone it's apalling.
Zero stars (if only!).

I just bought this phone about 2 months ago on ebay. I like the phone,
but recently had the microphone issue. I was able to "reset" it by turning
the speaker phone feature on and then off again. I'm also having two
other annoying problems... 1) T-Mobile's service coverage isn't as good
as there map shows. 2) The phone doesn't charge well. I think this is
due to the plugs and the way they connect. It charges best with my USB

My worst buy in my life. We bouht 3 of them to have a pda-like phone

so always dark. Soon after using it closed and needed a reset. After
the reset bluetooth doesn't work. Should also say its sound output is
very weak compared to any other brand. And finally in less than 7 months
the microphone stopped working, no one hears me. My 2002 bought Siemens

This has to be the worst phone I have ever displeasure of encountering.
Being in the telecommunications industry I have come across a lot of
poor efforts - but this one takes the cake. The phone's packaging is
quite good and it "looks" OK but its operation is appalling. Most of
the problems stem from the dodgy Windows Mobile OS. Its slow, it hangs
and it is generally unstable ( hey - just like Windows Desktop!). Australian
Carriers marketed it here for a short time and then withdrew it due
to the barrage of complaints received. It is also unrelaible with one
of our MPx220s failing totally shortly after reciept. Don't buy it -
get a nice Symbian phone instead ;)
Reviewed by Robert from Antigua WI on 1st May
I'm torn as to if to tell you get this phone. Motorola has so many flaws
in the hardware and software on this phone. You must have the latest
firmware or you can not hear anyone. Once thefirmware and software is
working correctly and the hardware works it's actually a great phone.
I have two. I had to send them to MOT to have them both reprogramed.
That was not so bad when I was living in the USA, but now I live in
Antigua and getting support on the phone is a nightmare. One of the
two phones now has a microphone problem. No one can hear me on the MPX220.
Why I don't know. If I use the headset or bluetooth headset it works.
I called MOT and they say send it in. It's cost me more in postage then
the cost of the phones. So to sum this up, Nice looking phone, great
features, very unreliable. No longer being made but available on Ebay
and other vendors. Best bet, get something else unless you have the
patince to deal with MOT support.

For most of you reveiwing this phone, you can't make a sound judgement
in the first week or month, it takes time for it flaws to unfold. It
looks great, and have great software, but it's the most money i've ever
wasted. It has camera problem, sound problems, hangup problems and charging
problems. I'm a computer programmer so i'm not the average user, the
not charging problems are most annoying to me because it now remove
the chance of me troubleshooting other problems. The way it work with
outlook is great, but this pone needs to go back to the drawing board.

I bought this phone for its PDA like features and QUAD band capabilities.
This is the WORST phone I have encoutered in my life so far. The problems,
1) WHen I am on the phone it automatically switches between "Normal"
and "Headset" profile, even though I don't have any headset connected
and Bluetooth is turned OFF. The audio keeps breaking during this process.
2) The reception is VERY BAD. 3) The Phone hangs and no keys work at
that time. So I have to remove the battery to power it off. I had a
Sony Ericsson phone which is smaller than this one, and it works GREAT.
I am planning to buy a NOKIA and throw this phone in the DUMSTER(Where
it belongs). I sent this phone to MOTOROLA Support, and they returned
the phone WITHOUT Fixing the problem. My Verdict is, MOTOROLA PHONES
SUCK, AND THEIR SUPPORT SUCKS EVEN MORE. At this rate this company would
go out of business soon. So DON'T BUY MOTOROLA PHONES.

I am not sure what most of these people are talking about. MPX220 is
a very nice phone and everything works just fine. The options on this
phone are numerous and for me all of them works pretty good. Remember,
this is a windows operationg system in a tiny enclosure. If you need
a basic phone, then this is not for you. If you are technical and would
love to use unmatched features (for the size) of this phone, then you
will love it. After I upgraded the the phone with the new BIOS a few
months ago, then the original two problems that I had with it (lock
ups and Voice volume) went away completely. I love this phone and the
things I can do with it.

Reviewed by Jaymes from United States on 19th
I've had my MPx220 for just under a month now and I've been mentally
kicking myself for choosing it ever since! I was attracted to it by
the things I need most: a quad-band phone that'll work globally, a 1.2
megapixel camera with video/audio, 512 MB of removable memory, USB modem
capability, Windows Media Player, and the '03 Windows internet browser.
The Windows browser is great, by the way; it's really nice to be able
to log on to MySpace, LiveJournal, eBay...just about any site you try!
It's like having a tiny PDA. The lightweight little phone looks nice,
too - kinda 60's retro with its chrome speaker face and blocky details.
Beyond that, though, the phone sucks! The photos and video are so bad
that the resolution on the camera may as well be just 640 x 480. No
matter what camera setting I use, the pic's come out dark and hazy.
The phone's volume (or lack of) is my biggest peeve, though. The phone
HAS to be set on "Outdoor Mode" just to hear anything through the speakers
or even the phone ringing. Worse, no one can hear you when you're talking
to them! I bet every person on this page has a lot of experience with
people saying "What - I can't hear you!" and "Are you standing next
to a waterfall or something?". Having to shout to be heard gets annoying
REAL fast. Plus, when the speaker volume is turned all the way up, the
speaker gets really tinny and tends to vibrate to the point it's hard
to understand what people are saying! Another gripe is the fact that
the phone is about as user-friendly as a calculus book. Things that
should be really easy to find like the alarm clock are buried several
steps into menus (if you're looking for yours, open the Start menu,
select Settings, select More, select Date and Time (which makes NO sense),
then scroll down to the bottom where you'll find the alarm clock settings
hiding from the world). More gripes: the clamshell is pretty hard to
flip open with one hand, if you miss a call or get a message you won't
know without manually checking the inside screen (no flashing light
or anything), no way to combine ringing with vibrating (only one or
the other), no page-scrolling buttons on the side (they only raise and
lower the volume), three second delay when you're answering calls, crappy
ring tones and displays...I could go on for quite a while. Suffice it
to say, I'll be trading my phone in for something easier to use real
soon. I just wish I'd seen this site before I wasted $200 on mine!

it deffinetely has a big problem with charging. its very big, very uncomfy
to use, yuo have to use a lot of force to open it (for a handy). The
arrows are much too big, and the number keys are too small. it takes
a very long time to turn on, sometimes it turned randomly off when i
ended a call, even tho the battery was full. it is really heavy, and
very complicated. ppl sent files over using bluetooth, then i had no
idea where to find it, n when i found it in the 'flie menager' it still
didnt open. the ifrared also didnt work. basically, this handy sux,

This is a Windows Mobile Smartphone using the Windows CE operating system
and Microsoft Activesync to sync with Microsoft Outlook on a PC or network.
If you aren't a Pocket PC user or you have no experience with CE, then
this phone will be a disaster for you unless you take the time to learn
it. Like on a PC or a Pocket PC, apps don't shut down just becuase you
stop using them. They stay running in the background until you shut
them down manually. There are reasons why this is done, but if you don't
manage the open apps, the processor will become overworked and either
slow down or crash. The software includes an excellent task manager,
but you have to use it! This is not a phone for someone who just wants
to pick it up, make calls, snap a few pics, browse the web and then
forget about the phone after closing the clam shell. Once you know what
you're doing, you will find the Windows Mobile Smartphone software is
extremely flexible and powerful. It can handle, display and manage enormous
numbers of contacts and appointments (over 500 MB worth if you use a
storage card). The processor is faster than most desktops were ten years
ago. That 500 MB can also hold a lot of songs or pictures, it that's
your thing. It's almost an ipod shuffle all by itself. There is a huge
volume of third party software that no other clam shell type phone could
ever handle. I have a dictionary in mine that uses more than 10 MB of
storage. Anyway, I bought this phone about 8 months ago because I have
been using a Pocket PC for years. I have not encountered a single problem
with it, and I use almost every feature. For those of you with slow
or locked up phones, use the system manager (The icon looks like a traffic
light). True, there are some annoying aspects to the OS, like the alarm
clock being burried in the menus, but there are excellent third party
solutions to them like "Bluetooth Switch" and "EZ Alarm" that allow
you to put shortcuts to those often used apps on a speed dial. Look
at Handango.com. This is the only small, clam shell WM Smartphone on
the market. Its a far better phone than a Treo or a Pocket PC phone
edition, which may be better PDAs than phones. It fills the niche I
was looking for, and it has done so flawlessly.

I've had this phone for a month now. I've been up and down the front
range of the Colorado Rockies; from Denver to New Mexico and the reception
has been very good. The phone takes very good pictures (for a phone).
I see people complaiing about the pic quality, but I thought the pics
looked great for a phone. This is not an 8 Meg Pixel 1->5 thousand dollar
camera, it's a phone. Maybe someday, phones will come close to the quality
of high end digital cameras. Also, I've read about the volume. There
is a setting for indoor and outdoor volume levels. If the phone is set
to outdoor, it is plenty loud. Also, some ringtones will be louder than
others. And, since this is a phone you can browse with ActivSync, you
can also download whatever ringtones you want as .wav's. I think a lot
of critical opinions come from lack of understanding (take some time
to understand your phone) and over expectations. Sure, out of a million
sold, there will be a few problem childs and infant mortality phones.
Usually, it's the problem phones or problem customers that will take
the time to write. How'bout the other 99% that are completely satisfied?
I like the feature where I can charge the phone while it is plugged
into the USB. Also, I like that it has the IR option. Also, the phone
is just right to fit in your pocket. It does alsmost everything the
larger PDA's can do without the bulk. As far as needing a Qwerty keyboard,
well, if I'm going to be typing that much, I'll do it on a PC. For simple
text messages or notes, the phone is is OK. I'm sure there are those
who want to type /a lot/, and for them, there are virtual keyboards
and a lot of other keyboard solutions. I was able to install some apps
like the battery pack pro, 1-calc and smartphonenotes very easily over
the USB connection. Also a wireless USB plug can be purchased for 20
bucks to sync up you phone without the cable. Well, I hope this phone
last for several years. I was back at the store looking around, and
to make a choice of phones again, I'd choose the same phone. TIP: It
plays MP3's but also play whatever wavs in the ringtones dir. I haven't
noticed the flip being weak. It looks and feels durable. I think the
mini SD can go up to 512MB. Not bad for a phone. :-) After installing
the additional storage, there will be additional battery drain. I'm
not sure how much. Cons: On this phone, I think the battery conver could
fit a little tighter.

Had this phone for 4 weeks and it decided that it wouldn't text anymore. Sent it to Motorola for repair under warranty, took them 5 weeks to decide to replace it after numerous phone calls and heated discussions! Replacement worked for approx 3 months and now will not read sim card, so is off for repair again! When it works it is a fairly good phone it has a few querks , there is a time delay on flip answer and the camera is not great. I think Motorola really do need to get their act together with this and improve on its general reliability as it would appear that I am not the only person who has had problems.

where do i start? I bought it in february and it worked ok for about
a month or so. Then it went all downhill. The windows freeze so often
that answering calls became imposible. I couldnt answer a primary call
and to add to that i couldnt switch to an incoming second call. It would
just not do that or better yet, it would hang up on both people. The
phone also has charging problems ( at least this one and that of my
boyfriend), you put it on the bedside table to charge next thign you

Then i replaced this phone with a newer version one ( supposedly better
softwear that corrects all the problems). The problems with this one
are even greater!!!! It doesnt work! Period! Moto and Windows are not
ready to be on the market as one piece.... DO NOT BUY!!!! I'm in the

I've had the phone four months now. The operator has replaced it twice
to try and fix the problems, without success. First the good point,
it synchronises with Outlook very nicely via USB. Otherwise it's hopeless,
keeps crashing regularly - almost once a day! UI is poor, response is
slow, navigation a pain. No copy & paste makes sending e-mails or saving
to contacts a real pain. No option to mark contacts, e-mails, or messages
to selectively delete or copy them. There is a delay of a few seconds
between pressing a button and the call being answered, before I got
used to it I pressed the button again putting my caller on hold. Poor
screen contrast and viewing angle. Flip screen is loose except when
fully open or closed. Bluetooth headset auto-answers and the setting
is not editable. Ring tones are sad to say the least and even on the
loudest setting, can't be heard when the phone is in your pocket, unless
you are in a quiet environment. Profiles don't work as the Phone|Sounds
setting overrides the tones and alert types. The external LCD backlight
delay is very short and cannot be set, so you can’t see the time/date/signal
strength/battery state without pre ssing a button. The voice command
interpreter cannot decipher my accent and it cannot be trained! Battery
life is less than a day if you have the bluetooth turned on. A real
waste of £70 my old Nokia 6600 was a far better 'smartphone' in every
department except camera resolution.

I am a bit disappointed on the mpx220. The camera pictures are 1280x960
but they all get a bit noise even in well illuminated places. It has
a nice Calendar, but lacks a simple alarm-clock. Videos are very small
in resolution and very short, I haven't found the options to change
this yet. Also its a bit slow on incoming phone-calls, so it can take
1 second or 2 to get a fully functionally line (taking a call and immediately
sayin "hello" or so rarely will reach the caller). Javagames hardly
work on it. It calls Smartphone, but I miss a texteditor or even a wordpad.
Yup and it has windows-related bugs like locking a file, even when the
application is closed allready. One further mysterious problem was that
I wasn't able to shoot another foto (out of memory) even when the memory
was free, storage (I have 512MB additional storage) was booth nearly
empty (except for 29 fotos - 4,27mb). It is still usefull as mp3 player,
but I guess there are better mobiles out there.
