Motorola V600 review

 Review: July 2004  
 

Last updated November 2004

Rating: 2 stars

In a nutshell: A clamshell phone with camera, MP3 ringtones, Bluetooth and video playback.



 

Review

The Motorola V600 is a well-specified phone with an integrated digital camera, video playback (but not video recording), MP3 ringtones and Bluetooth™ wireless connectivity. Quad band lets you roam globally.

The V600 is an attractively-styled clamshell phone with a smart chrome finish. The quality of the display is excellent and the camera performs well (for a phone!). The phone is larger than most clamshells, but then again it is a high-spec phone with lots of features packed in. Overall a nice looking and functional phone, aimed firmly at the more expensive end of the market.

What lets the V600 down badly is the reliability problems reported by users. We cannot recommend this phone, and instead would recommend the new Motorola V620.

Its a very very basic phone compared to any phone you can buy nowadays but it is refreshing to go back to basics and use it instead of an iPhone or Lumia touchscreen etc. Clam shell feels nice and opens with a 'snap' feel. Screen is misery and poor, lots of ringtones, keypad ok, but apart from texting and calling thats it. The camera is woefully bad, battery life is a few days so ok. I wouldn't mind a modern up to date phone with this design but with decent camera and internet etc. Sadly this phone is left behind in yesterdays world of old phones.

From a performance perspective, this is a very poor phone and definately not worth buying. Long term issues I have had with the V600: * Charging often doesn't work. If it does, it's beause the wire is plugged in at a certain angle; * Tones randomly don't work sometimes; * The phone freezes at random. This might be during a call, typing a message or whatever. Often it needs to be turned off by removing the battery. * The phone sometimes behaves completely randomly, and not to your instruction. Multiple 'page' refreshes that cannot be stopped without resetting, an inability to access certain pages (e.g. messages) at certain times (you are just returned to the index) etc. * Many other annoying glitches. Every now and again I need to reset the date and time, again, this is needed completely at random. In sum: the phone doesn't always work as it should. This is not what you want! There are far more reliable phones out there.

Anyone and I MEAN anyone that has a bad review of this phone, is an idiot. This was my 1st contract phone (after owning only Nokia for yrs) and I have to say, that even though Motorola have reputation for making bad phones, this is one of the most robust I have ever owned. Mine died, only after being 'washed' by my gf and to this day (4yrs later) I have still to find a phone as reliable and as user friendly as this was (next best thing has been Sony Ericsson). Don't forget, without Motorola, we wouldn't have mobiles. as far as I can tell, all of the problems detailed above are in the minds of the user, or are down to user error. Don't blame technology for your inability to use it. I feel priviledged to have owned this phone and so should everyone else.

I don't understand why everyone else hates this phone! :S I've never had any troubles with mine. The camera takes pretty decent pics for vga, the weight is just right - not too heavy, not too light - the screen is clear and bright, the buttons are small enough to keep the phone small and large enough to be seen, the hinge is still just right, even after a few year's use... what's to hate? Bluetooth connectivity is reliable, I can almost always get a signal (I'm on a rare network), it's cute enough for a girly phone and stylish enough for a butch phone, etcetera. I've only had one "hang", and that was due to an accidental setting I entered. The only problem I might cite is that I can't store many text messages, but I'm unusual in that I don't use it for calls, just texts, so I need more than most. I give it 4 stars! :)

Do not buy this phone under any circumstances. You will land up with all sorts of problems with this phone. The features are great if only they would work all the time. The basics - charging, speaker phone and response time are not at all reliable and will go off any time and again start working if they feel like.

this phone is absolute pants! battery life is down to just over a day, but if i recieve a couple of phone calls the battery will be alomost flat, this is probably because the phone is getting on a bit iand i didnt have it from new. Also messages can take forever to come through. It has a bad habit of changing ring styles and going into silent mode, it switches itself of randomly, menu system feels slow and i dont think the set up is all that user friendly either. Ive just gone back to a samsung and although its not as feature packed its streets ahead for use and layout.

My V3 Razor recently fell and split into 2.

I've had the V600 for 15 months now. It looks good and is packed full of features (albeit lacking video recording) - which are listed on numerous web sites, so no point in repeating them here. However I do find the side-button for volume control/ring style irritating, as it can easily be caught and change itself to something not wanted. I also find the memory quite limiting. Furthermore, my USB data suite doesn't even recognise the inbox (to transfer texts, e-mails, etc. to PC), which I have been told by the USB manufacturer is common to many Motorola 'phones. Anyway, 3/5 for features. That's the good news. Now for the bad news, which mostly centres around reliability. (1) My first V600 was purchased just before a two week holiday in the US. I was struggling after 5 days and by 10 I'd given up - some internal problem caused the battery to short out. It got to the point that it would not hold a recharge even for a minute of operation. It became effectively unuseable for the second of the two weeks, putting me out of contact. The handset problem confirmed by the shop and replaced free of charge. (2) After 8 months of use, the second set needed an internal chip that controlled dialling etc. replacing, after signal strength would drop totally and for no apparent reason. Calls failed and texts would be held in the outbox. (3?) Also, when writing a text at the same time as receiving a text caused the phone to power off and back on again, losing the text being written. I'm not sure if this is related to the chip problem or not. Four months after having that chip replaced, the same problem is rearing its head again. I'll get it reparied and hang on in there for a month or two more but will upgrade later this summer to something with video recording, MP3 playback and expandable memory capability. It would be wrong to judge Motorola on the basis of one person's experience of one 'phone but it's safe to say that I'm not soley looking at Motorola for my upgrade. My old Nokia "house-brick" from the mid-1990s, which the V600 replaced, has proven far more reliable (if lacking in features)!!

I've had this phone since Chiristmas 205 now and up until about July last year I was very impressed. The camera is brilliant the games a good and bluetooth is easy to start up. But since July the handset has stopped charging completly. That maybe because it used to be my dads though. When it did work the camera was amazing (Can't video record though) the light on the front stands out and flashes when it rings. The oly bad point about this phone is memory. It comes with 5.5 MB which is just enough to hold 1 song and there is no slot for a memory card. In the reviews lots of them say that the battery life is poor but I didn't think so. All in all this phone looks good (not as nice as the v500) and is not much of an improvement as the v500. I am looking for another phone now but I'm not going to spend much on 1 as I did not use this for calls but mainly for features. The motorola c975 is 40 in carephone warehouse and comes with 30 airtime!!! I would recommend that more than the motorola v600

The speaker has broken so when you talk to people you can't hear them much and when you recieve a txt or call you can only hear vibration. I told my dad that the speaker doesn't work and he said the buttons on the side turn it up, I tried that a million times and it is on full volume and it still doesn't go louder. Plus when you put it in your pocket it is so thick that it feels like you have a brick in your pocket. Come on MOTOROLA i know you can do alot better. (e.g) MOTOROLA V3,V3i and V3x!

I bought my Motorola V600 from used at Compact Phones in Bradford in May last year, and I loved the phone from the start as it was a motorola flip phone which meant that it made a promise of style. It didn't dissapoint - two tone with silver and black, and some chrome on the outside of the flip, and on the keypad. My phone was unlocked to all networks so I was able to put my Orange SIM card in and play straight away. This phone's feature set was good for 50, with a VGA camera that is very clear, Bluetooth and MP3 Ringtones, I was very pleased with this phone, as it was a modern replacement for my deceased Sony Ericsson T630. I use Bluetooth to connect my laptop PC to the Internet, and although a 9.6K internet connection is nothing to get excited over, it's an Internet connection that I wouldn't normally have - I can connect in the middle of a caravan site, on the cliff tops at Withernsea on the east coast, and on the Dale peninsula in south Wales at the Dale Fort centre. This phone comes with silver metal covers that make it feel expensive but they are wobbly, but you can change both the back cover and the cover on the clamshell to suit your mood. The only downs I have with this phone is that first, I am visually impaired and with all motorola phones, I find it hard to read numbers in my phone book. I cannot record video on the V600 but I can play it, and the memory is not that abundant (Only 5 megs). i would have liked Motorola to include PIM synchronisation so I could synchronize my phone book with Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 quickly and easily but I can still do it, just one entry at a time. In summary, I believe that we should give Motorola the contempt they deserve as too many people seem to talk about problems they have with their phones. Out of all the phones I have bought last year, this one is the best. I went back to O2 with it in July and have had problems with not being able to make or recieve calls or text messagbes, but by going back to Orange, I have ironed out these problems

Loved the phone when I had it and found it very user friendly. However, changed my mind after 8 months when the backlights packed in for no apparent reason. As the phone was under warranty, I sent it back to motorola workshop (on the advice of my supplier) only to be told that nothing could be done because fault caused by 'water damage'. This is rubbish! Last year I had problems with motorola V500. On that occasion, screen packed in after 10 months. I know I'm not careless with the phones, my previous motorola Timeport continued in perfect working order for almost 5 years and still comes out in emergencies!

To be fair to the phone.It was quite impressive when i first got it and it hasnt ever stopped working completly.But more and more things seem to become apparant on it which only serve to wind you up.I could only ever save approx 8 text messages on the phone,yet my outbox would have 40+ messages in it (who cares what you have sent to people) For some unknown reason you can change the ring style without having to open the phn, so if its in your pocket you can knock it to silent without knowing. It freezes quite often, and seems to lack some of the more basic features of models lower down the range.In this case more was certainly less.wouldnt bother

This phone is ok in terms of functionality, but in terms of battery life, I think the batteries in Jenna Jameson's vibrator last longer than the battery on this phone. And for some reason, some clever fool at Motorola thought it would be a great idea to put a volume button on the outside that makes the most horrendous noise when pressed... and it often goes of in your pocket when you are walking up stairs. I think the phone actually knows when your in a place where phones are not allowed on e.g. a library or a cinema and then decides to go off with the use of the helpfully placed volume button on the side of the phone!! And don't even get me started on the memory on this phone, I think my gold fish has a greater memory capacity than this phone...Apart from the above, the phone is useable and generally ok.

I really like this phone. I was worried because of the negative reviews, but I'm not worried at all now. Keep in mind that a) I've only had this phone for 30 days, and b)it's my second cell phone. Oh, and I'm a computer nerd. Pros: You can configure ALL the buttons on the Home screen, so it makes performing common tasks very easy. Good, solid design. I dropped mine in the sewer, and after opening it up, soaking it in alcohol, and drying it thoroughly, everything works (camera, bluetooth, speakerphone, connectivity still good) Great camera for being integrated into a phone (640x480 w. brightness adjustment and 4x digital zoom) Nice main color screen, very visible blue LED external screen. Oodles of ringtones. Easily change customizable ring styles from Loud, Soft, Vibrate, Vibe then ring, Silent. Cons: It's a little hard to figure out at first due to all the features. Voice recognition doesn't work for me. It could be my voice, however. Bottom Line: An attractive, effective phone with possibly too many features. I would highly recommend it.

On the plus side, it's easy to use for basic tasks; the keys and directional pad work well for dialing and games; the WAP browser's fine; the screen's good; the ring's loud; it's nice looking and quite small. On the minus, I've had problems getting bluetooth to work with my PC (though that may be a fault on the PC side); sometimes you have to press a few too many buttons to do simple things; the less-used menu options tend to be hidden away; the lack of T9 predictive text is annoying; the camera is average; the reception and call quality aren't as good as some phones; and I've never used the video playback. Overall, good in some areas, average in others, but not really bad in anything.

For a phone that was the top of the range the camera is dire. Despite the choice of settings the camera takes photos as it sees fit, usually less than 40kb, hence poor pictures. It takes at least 5 to 6 key presses to access functions I should be able to access in 2. On one very embarrasing occasion the phone rang loudly in a shopping centre, I tried to answer the phone but it wouldnt stop ringing, I tried to turn it off but it wouldnt have that !! In the end I had to remove the battery !!!!. Poor call quality, profile changing in your pocket, you've read it all before. For such an established communications company, Motorola dont know how to make decent mobile phones !

Well the phone started of nicely, I liked it very much, only problem was it gets damaged pretty easy, so the looks take of in no time... Now i've got this phone for about 10 months, and it won't reload anymore... It isn't the adapter, I allready checked that, so time to return it to Moto... Time to buy a good nokia (only bad looks... or a Samsung!)

Hi. I have had the phone since last April. I have had a number of problems with the phone, as those described by others. When switched off the backlight on the front screen stays on, the pixels on the front screen become scrambled and distort the time display. I also had a problem when the phone would not switch off! I was told by the O2 shop where I bought it that I had to use the Master Reset button, which I don't ercall seeing in the manual. This also ended up losing all my settings. And will somebody tell me how to set up for voice dialling???!! There appears to be nothing in the manual for this at all. The Blue Tooth unit I have is okay, but still don't really understand how it works (though I can answer calls with it). Again the manual for this was rubbish. It's all in all a very flashy phone, but too complicated for my liking. Think I will go back to a Nokia next time my contract expires in April. If anyone can help with the voice dialling please let me know by leaving me a message here!

I have had this phone for a while and its resonably ok, It feels durable and sturdy and although ive had problems with the phone powering itself off or diverting calls on the odd occasion this isnt too bad. One thing i would say is this is definetly a phone for right handed people, im a lefty and the position of the buttons is pretty horrible, left OR right handed the buttons are too flat and lead to people with chubby fingers making mistakes, when you close the flap shut it gradually leads to annoying little scuff marks on the screen from the buttons. The wap is horribly underdeveloped (like the phonebook), no bookmark function, only a store page function, where you have to leave the wap to go back and open it, or a web shortcuts page which is not well explained and doesnt seem to appear in the manual very much. i dropped mine and the silver bit of plastic on the face cracked, its difficult to replace and u have to replace the full front plasctic screen , this cheapo- easily breakable bit could eaisily have been part of the removable fascia, saving me a lot of trouble, Overall, being heavy and metal doesnt make u a good phone, pretty poor camera, no video, get a nokia

I have had the Motorola V600 for one month now. I have had to send it back because it has developed a fault -the backlight on the lid only turns itself on when the phone is switched off (this happens randomly), and freezes the phone ! I have to remove the battery and re-insert it to re-set the phone ! Apart from this problem, the phone in general is OK. One annoying thing though -the switch controlling the ring style is on the outside and sometimes tends to get knocked accidently, changing the ring style without my knowledge ! Another thing which my previous mobile phone (Nokia) had which this one hasn't got is the ability to change the start day of the week in the calendar. I personally find this very useful as my working week starts on a Sunday (I work shifts). I tend to agree with the other reviewers who say that the quality control and field testing of this phone (and perhaps other Motorola phone models) would appear to be rather poor.

Terrible. Had to send it back after two days after a number of problems- accidentally pushing the buttons on the side to change profile is bad enough, but when it does it of its own accord, it becomes a whole different kettle of fish. It stalled when composing text messages, the vibrating alert decided to pack up numerous times, and the front display screen became unreadable. It looks nice, fair enough, but otherwise, poor. Avoid at all costs.

I bought this phone as it had the best list of features for the money. What a bust! First the phone wouldn't charge but managed to fix that. Then one day the phone gave it up and died, great. Got a replacement from the network (Orange) but that broke within 2 hours! They got me to reboot the software over the phone and that fix lasted less than 10 minutes. The menu system is harder to learn than my previous Nokia's and samsung's and it seems that in the initial set up, you get the camera if you press most keys, I dont know about you but I text alot more that I photograph! Ringtones are awful, you will be buying a new ringtone within the first day. To be honest, I dont trust this phone, it is so unreliable. Get something like the Nokia 6230. Dont be fooled by the features, the phone is a DOG!

I have had the V600 for 6 months now along with the Jabra 250 bluetooth headset. The best investment I have made in a cell phone yet. Also purchased the cable and software that allows me to share the info on my laptop. This is especially nice when adding contacts, free or customized ringtones, saving pictures, etc. It can all be done by simple drag and drop. I have had none of the problems that others have mentioned in their reviews. I am with Cingular and other than a very poor signal at my home the service has been very good. The only improvements I would recommend would be better placement/design of the external buttons used to adjust ringing and voice dialing. These are to easy to accidentally activate. Also would like to see a slight modification to the edge of the cover to make it a little easier to open "one handed". Occasionaly when I recieve a call and attempt to flip the phone open with one hand it partially opens and then closes. This of course disconnects the call and I have to call the person back. One more reason to use the wireless headset and never have to open the phone to answer. If you are buying a phone for the camera you need to rethink that idea. The camera function on 95% percent of all cell phones is a novelty item. Don't expect anything but a cute picture that you can send to a friend. As a Safety/Operations manager, I use it at work to document situations or damaged shipments. It is great for those type of situations. My next cell phone will have all of this plus corporate email functions.

OK so I'm reading everyone's reviews and I've noticed that those who gave the phone one star used a nokia previously. Here's a tip: LEARN TO USE A MOTOROLA. You dimwits a nokia and a motorala ARE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT!! A motorola doesn't work like a nokia. Before you give up after one week on a phone cause you dont't know how to turn it off, or you dont't know how to change the options so it doesn't go to your voicemail after two rings - READ THE MANUAL!! And if the phone is turning off by itself, did you ever stop to think that maybe the battery died?? Or if your phone was dropping calls or you were getting bad reception - did you ever stop to realize that your service SUCKS!! I have never heard so many flamboyant and over-exaggerated complaints in my entire life. The worst one was the idiot that said she didn't get missed calls, but got them 2 or 3 days later. Maybe that's cause people don't call you EVERYDAY - and I can see why. Please, please, for the sake of humanity, use common sense before blaming everything and the war on your phone!!

I've always had Motorola phones, since they were the size of a house brick and weighed pounds. But I am becoming disillusioned with the V600. I've read all the previous reviews and it seems Motorola lacks consistent quality control. yes, for a bells and whistles phone it takes excellent pictures, but you cant send them.. video clips, a joke Text messaging, they come in when the phones in a good mood, often hours after sending, and some do go missing and this is with the useful O2 provider. The keypad and face, screens and surrounds are badly marked and shiny stuff wearing through in places. I carry this phone in my jeans pocket always and though it is a clamshell, leaning on it will; 1, turn the phone off 2, change the ring from vibrate to loud. 3, give you white screen syndrome The volume control is oversensitive , also a fault on the bluetooth headset, which I find gives me earache after several hours of car wearing and is not loud enough when driving on a motorway, even with the earpiece held close into the ear And as for battery life, mine is now down to 36 hours standby, it was only marginally over 72 hours from day 1. And yes it has been cycled according to instructions and it is a high power original battery. The instruction manual I find difficult and not informative enough, bluetooth was difficult to set up and the GPRS is a law unto itself, Access the intenet? I dont think so, despite visits to the O2 shop and numerous calls to the O2 helpline. Altogether I am not happy with this phone,but I dont think I'd change to Simens or Motorola, they look dated and it would mean unlearning years of hello moto !

At first I loved it, then the novelty wore off. The phone book is rubbish (why give the option of adding a new number to an exisitng person, for it to just create a whole new record for that person?). Why have video playback but not video recording? Anyway, after a few months it started turning itself off when I opened it. After getting it back twice from the manufacturers, I then couldn't set the time properly (I would set it and then it would randomly change to something else). It's still at the manufacturers and as far as I'm concerned it can stay there.

This is absolutely ridiculous. You have to keep scrolling for a loooong time to find a name. - Switches off randomly - Would not stop ringing once and neither could it be sitched off. Had to remove the battery to shut it down. - Will not receive messages unless you are in standby mode. - Plastic front cracked easily. I had my phone in the pocket and leaned against the table.

look, i just want to say where you ALL CAN SEE that there IS, i repeat THERE IS a way to have multiple numbers or phonebook entries UNDER ONE NAME. PRIMARY CONTACTS. find that in the settings, and then when you're in the phone book, you just hit left or right to see the different numbers. i have 3 different work numbers in my phone, ALL UNDER ONE NAME. it doesn't say my company's name 3 times. only once. this is on all of the v series phones. i am SICK of reading about people complaining about this when it says in the manual how to change it!
