Motorola ROKR E1 review

 Review: November 2005  

Last updated November 2006


In a nutshell: The Motorola ROKR E1 is a joint development by Motorola and Apple and is the first mobile phone to support Apple's iTunes® system as used in the iPod.


The ROKR has been called the iPod phone, and it includes a number of features that make it a superb music player as well as a phone. The music player supports a range of formats, including MP3 and AAC, and the iTunes interface makes downloading tracks and creating playlists a breeze. This is definitely something that gives it an edge over other MP3 player phones. Downloading is not that quick - a 4 Mbyte MP3 track takes around 30 seconds to download. This is much slower than an iPod.

Music output is via 3D surround sound from twin speakers. You can also listen to music via the matching stereo headset supplied, however you cannot listen to music with a Bluetooth headset (Bluetooth is for voice calls only). Sound quality through the headphones is excellent and is pretty good via the speakers too.

The ROKR also has the full range of other features that you'd expect from a phone in this price range. These include a good 262k colour screen, a camera and a video recorder, although the camera is only VGA resolution (0.3 megapixels). A nice feature is the side lights that sync with music, ringtones and games and the vibration effects that sync with games and music. The "airplane" mode is also very handy, enabling you to access games and music during flights.

TransFlash memory cards can be used to expand the memory of the device. However, the phone has a limit of 100 music tracks, regardless of the memory available. This is a feature of the iTunes implementation. Once you've reached the limit of 100 songs, you have to delete some in order to download more. 100 tracks is a limit that will probably frustrate many users.

It's definitely a phone worthy of consideration if you're looking for a combined phone and MP3 player, but it's not the only choice by far. You could also look at the Sony Ericsson W800i, the Samsung D600, or a Nokia smartphone, such as the N91. Some of our user reviews have compared the ROKR with the older Motorola E398, and it's certainly true that the ROKR is basically an improved E398 with the addition of iTunes. It's evolutionary, not revolutionary, but the E398 was a good phone and the ROKR is too. Just not an outstanding one.

Motorola ROKR E1 features include:

  • iTunes® interface - make playlists
  • Music player: MIDI, MP3, WAV, and AAC formats
  • 3D surround sound (twin speakers)
  • Matching wired headset supplied
  • Handsfree speakerphone
  • Stereo polyphonic ringtones (MIDI, MP3, WAV, and AAC formats)
  • Side lights sync with games, ringtones, music and ambient sounds, plus vibration syncs with music and games
  • VGA camera (640 x 480 pixels) with 4x digital zoom
  • Video recording with full screen video playback
  • Display: TFT, 176 x 220 pixels, 262k colours
  • Messaging: SMS, EMS 5.0, MMS, instant messaging, email (POP3, SMTP, IMAP4)
  • Java games
  • Downloadable screensavers & themes
  • Picture caller ID & picture phonebook
  • Airplane mode: allows safe access to address book, games and music during flights
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth (including data transfer, but not iTunes or music), USB
  • Expandable TransFlash™ memory card
  • WAP, GPRS class 10
  • Triband
  • Size: 108 x 46 x 20.5 mm
  • Weight: 107g
  • Talktime: up to 560 minutes
  • Battery standby: up to 230 hours
  • Music time: 15 hours using wired headset or 6 hours using surround sound speakers

i think that the roker is a good phone to me it has with me 6 years

this phone is really confusing when it comes the MMS. i have tried many different things as to changing the size of the pictures and it still wouldnt send. i have full signal and nothing seems to be working under the MMS texting. yes that includes videos and music. i dont know if anyone else is having this problem but this might be a problem that im only having. Also the Itunes is not really worth it on here since it takes ages to transfer songs from to your computer to the Rokr thanks to the usb 1 usage. but other than that its ok. the signal strength is pretty amazing i have to give it that but i just wish the MMS would work...

This phone is a good enough fone if your a kind of person who isn't that up to date on features, sure it has a camera, video, iTunes, games etc, but the features are quite poor, when you have iTunes on the phone is very slow and can get on your nerves. Yes it has a good surround system, but now there is many more phones that I would reccomend. The good features with this fone is music, messages, settings and memory. I must admit the battery doesn't last that long either when you have the music on. The phone also freezes. Wouldn't reccomend it to a high tech person. X

I have never had any problems with the screen freezing... i have dropped it about 20 times and there are no scratches or breaks...absolutely robust tough model. Its not cost me a penny in repairs or additions. Speakers are like nothing i have ever heard before (so clear) and about it only holdin 100 songs.... its a phone people what do you expect... if you want 1000 songs get an IPOD! Only quibble is the video recording is not very long but hay we cant have it all! If thats all to complain about im happy... and ill have it for another 3 years i think!!!!

I got my motorolain 2005, and i have to say that it isn't all i thought it would be. The music doesn't play so loud after awhile and it can be different to most other phones in the way of controlling. It often turns itself on if it get's slitely nocked. The camera is not at all good for pictures or video.

Reviewed by Daniel from UK on 15th Jul 2007
I bought this phone 2days ago with a unexpectedly good discount of 50%! :) But I have a little problem.., syncing my music with iTunes is not that seamless what they said.. I can't all the playlists I want onto the phone icon in the iTunes list, but there are some exceptions which is really weird, and annoying. Why can not I put any of my music onto that phone??? There must be a way to fix this, and so I don't give this 1 or 2 stars, I didn't lose hope yet. The other thing that theres a 100 track limit, but who cares, you can change your songs daily, why not? :) However, the phone is great, it has Bluetooth, stereo speakers which is kind of nice, USB cable to transfer anything (You need the program Motorola Phone Tools for file transfers, except music that works through iTunes), and good display, logical menus, and everything. What I found bad, is that I can't make new folders in the Pictures folder or in any other, so you can't really organize your files. So, if I wouldn't have to work out that iTunes syncing problem I would give 5 stars, because it's a good phone, and worths buying it. Daniel J.

I am very happy with this phone. I don't use the iTunes function that much, however I did upload a few songs on it, just in case my iPod one day runs out of batteries. Speaking of batteries, when I call and textmessage alot, the phone easily goes out of battery fast. It is a shame how the guide book no where tells you how to have an mp3 as a ringtone instead of those lame standard ones. It took me a half a year to found out that it was even possible! The media functions such as camera isn't really that great quality. But it comes in handy when you don't have your digicam with you and you must take a snapshot. After reading a few other reviews, my phone never ever crashes. It's working great. I'm really happy with it, I wouldn't easily trade this one with a new one. It's just really easy to navigate through things.

Reviewed by Bex from UK on 29th Jun 2006
I do like this phone, i got it for my birthday, and i thought it looked awesome, and the fact that it has itunes was wicked. The people who complain about it only having a limited 100 songs are the people who listen to any old rubbish, if anyone can name 100 awesome songs that they would listen to anytime, then tell me, but so far i found about 70 or 80 songs is plenty, n i still skip some of them! At the start i did have a few problems with it xcrashing, but it only did this about 3 times and it seems fine now, i've dropped it twice, and the screen hasn't scratched but some of the casing has dented but its unnoticiable. The guy who said he had problems with getting a signal might want to look at where he lives because that has nothing to do with the phone, its the network. Just worked out how to have songs as ringtones so thats a great feature, as long as you move your videos and photos to your memory card, you'll have enough space to do this. The themes features is great if you ever fancy a change of scenary. The screen quality is fantastic. The camera is good for a 0.3 megapixel and the video is alright. The best thing about the phone is the built-in speakers, most of my friends thought someone had turned on a radio when they heard it! The lights are pretty funky as well love the colours! The phone is really good value for money and as a combined itunes and phone its awesome!

READ THIS REVIEW ***I made a BIG mistake. I don't know why I decided to go for it. The body feels cheap and tacky and the camera is very poor. Video is also pixelated and "squarey". The iTunes interface is painfully slow, taking around 40 seconds for ONE song! And i cannot believe Motorola have used USB 1.1 technology! Not USB 2.0!! The joystick in the middle is not as responsive as it used to be either and the battery cover has been prone to coming loose. And i would love to know why Motorola have put the memory card slot under the battery of all places? very strange. I find reception is poor, wherever i am with 3 bars maximum, if im lucky. The battery also lasts 1-2 days, if that. The built in speakers don't even go loud in maximum volume. I have since sold it on and got a Sony Ericsson W810i which is MUCH better and the quality is outstanding. Think very carefully before going for this.

Reviewed by mitch from UK on 14th Jun 2006
Absolutly AMAZING! Yes the 50 song limit in Aus (100 in other countries) can be dissapointing but there are ways to get around this without loosing quality. People who can be bothered to tell others will write it but im not one of them people so im not. Otherwise its an all around good phone. People complain about the VGA camera (0.3MegaPixel) but it still takes amazing pics. And lets face it, a mobile IS NOT a camera, A CAMERA is a camera. Besides i have had 3 other VGA camera phones B4 and this one definatly beats them in quality, even though its the same MegaPixel. All up gr8 mobile for teenagers or people who consider their visual image important.

Thought this phone was fab to start with, great having Itunes on it. Then it started to crash, freeze and generally do other weird things. Had to take battery out to switch it off when it froze. In the end, i couldn't even type text in a message or save a number without it freezing. I'm currently waiting for a replacement phone as i sent mine back. Unfortuantely I have to have another E1 as this isn't a known fault! Pah, my dad had to send his back for the same reason, and I have read countless reviews from people who have had the same problem. I think I am going back to Nokia!!

Look this phone is a E398. Ok i agree. the E398 was voted top mp3 phone fo the year by Cnet. So how come people are Critizizing it when it gets put back onto the market with BETTER FEATURES. Dont say its a waste of money eatheir its is great value. It also comew with 256 mb flash card. Thats worh 30 alone. So dont complain about the price. If you want a mp3 player capable of playing 5000 songs. Then a 120 phone is not going to dilver that is it. So go work in Mac Donalds and save some money up to buy a ipod instead of spending ur life on forums saying the Rokr is rubbish. Ben

This phone is quite good, the sound quality is brilliant, the only problem is that you can only have 100 maximum songs on it, the megapixel is not the best feature on this phone either but if you are like me and very rarely use a the camera on a phone then your ok. I dont think this phone is as good as the sony ericsson W800i or Sony ericsson W900i if your looking to have a brilliant camera on it as the W800i and W900i have an amazing 2.0 megapixel camera. So if your looking for a phone with a brilliant megapixel camera and want loads of songs on your phone then your better of getting the W800i which you can get approx. 125 songs on it or if you wanna get even MORE songs on your phone then the W900i is the phone for you which you can hold approx. 500 songs on it. Also look out for the sony ericsson W950i which comes out sometime between summer 2006 and christmas 2006 which will have a WHOPPING 4GB memory which you will be able to get around 4000 songs on the phone, YES!!! I SAID FOUR THOUSAND SONGS. I for one will be getting this phone only one problem... Sony have decided not to put a camera on this phone!!!!!! I have one question for people who say that sony ericsson have only got a better camera. Have you actually seen how much music you can get on it? as I said before in my review that sony ericsson W800i and W900i can pack a whole lot more music on the phone and thats just the music my friend has 125 songs on his W800i, 95 games lots of videos and pictures and he STILL has space for more stuff. If I could have got this phone when I got this phone I would have but where im on contact and I have only got a visa electron card I could only get a certain phone from the site I was on.

Excellent phone with ultimate features. The only drawback is the 0.3 mp camera. The battery life is awesome. Excellent music quality and a very good tft screen.

this phone is rubbish! how can you say it is better than the sony walman phone, because it 'looks better and can play itunes?'. sure on the computer itunes is good, and good with an ipod, but on this phone- why???? the only thing good about the phone is the stereo sound speakers. audio capacity is small. mp3s are barred at 100 songs, camera is vga (0.3 MP), menus are slow, and lots of crashes and other problems. i bought this phone thinking it was going to be good, but a week later returned it and got a w800 instead. the phone looks nice and shiny on the shelves, but its just another plasticy gimmick...

Sluggish, spongy operation, good speakers. CRASHES: I see another reviewer has reported on malfunction, error, software problem of this phone... mine locks up every time I attempt to enter text characters and resets or turns off and on.

THis phone is great!! The I-Tunes is fntastic as well as the sound. The camera and colour screen is good, and bluetooth capability is a bonus. Very stylish, I think.

i have had this phone for a few months now, and have had to have it replaced twice already, the sound quality is good, but the fact that the software on the phone keeps deleting the songs from my itunes, the bluetooth doesnt work, and every time it gets a call or a text message through, it freezes and switches itself off, meaning you cant make phone call or use it to communicate, which is what it is for. i have found it completely useless and would never reccomend it

After a bad start with this phone it seems to be getting better. At first I couldnt get the Itunes to work, tried everything but my computer couldn't read it I finally formatted the memory card and that sems to do the trick. My only other gripe is that I seem unable to change my mp3 into ringtones, when i go into my media folder it is not picking on any of the music in the memory card. It is doing my head in. I upgraded to this phone from a D500, I fancied a change and didnt want to get the D600. I do like it and im sure that once I search the net for help on ringtones I will like it a lot better. Good for a change.

This phone does not deserve the ipod badge. Here is a short list: Pros: Good stereo speakers I-tunes Cons: Screen and menu system bad Camera only VGA resolution- terrible, really Tunes are incredibly slow transfer-takes ages!! Fiddly joystick 100 song limit despite card capacity- what is that all about??!! Very slow, errattic menu interface operation, especially when listening to music in the background. The stereo speakers and I-tunes are the saving grace. If i could have given 1 and a half i would have.. Alternative phones: Samsung D600, Sony Errcson K750i, Nokia 3250, or wait until the ROKR E2 is released- that should be a much better phone

An amazing phone. It does everything i want it to do and more. The guides are a little too vague though and a bit confusing. The sound quality is amazing and the itunes capabilities save spending extra money for an MP3 player. Rock on ROKR.

the only thing i like on this phone is the i tunes.. and even then they were trouble uploading onto the phone, then when transfering pictures to computer it continuosly adds extra songs deleting the ones i selected! the camera is dissapointing.. the message capacity again dissapointing.. the phone is constantly running out of battery meaning that the i tunes feature can never actualy be used!! stupid stupid people that made this phone i neeeded a new phone and now i have wasted my money on a piece of junk !

This is by far the worst phone I have ever had! There are several faults I have experienced such as the erratic crashing by turning itself on and off and the fact that on several occasions it has deleted all the iTunes off for no apparent reason! Takes a while to get used to but if you want it for the iPod features you would be much better off buying an iPod! The camera technology isn't very high quality either. The only good feature other than the iTunes is that it has a relatively long battery life! Wasn't enough for me to not cancel the contract though!

The ROKR is a good size, excellent screen res and of course iTUNES :D also it has nice touches like the light responsive keypad ie when its daylight it stays off and at night it will come on [i initially spent ages trying to make it work, thought it was broke lol] and the rokr allows different vibration patterns which is cool too! only real letdown is that, no matter how big ur memory card, the phone only has 100 song capacity but tbh i have an ipod so its fine lol. All in all a brilliant phone at which im v v v v v pleased with. worth the money.
