Motorola W220 review

 Review: December 2006  
 

Rating: 5 stars

In a nutshell: An entry-level clamshell phone with an FM radio.

Best buy: SIM Free Unlocked Motorola W ... from Amazon (£0)



 

Review

The Motorola W220 is a budget addition to the popular RAZR clamshell family. Featuring Motorola's now familiar flat keypad with cool blue backlighting, the W220 is a bargain basement phone with limited features. There's no camera, no music player and the screen is a basic colour display with a low resolution. However, there is an FM radio that can be listened to via the speakerphone, or using optional stereo headphones. For someone looking for a basic phone with an attractive design, the W220 could be a good choice. This is virtually the only clamshell phone in this price range. Be aware that this is not a superslim phone like the Motorola RAZR, but it's still compact and lightweight. The closest competitor is probably the Nokia 2310, which comes in a traditional candy bar shape rather than a clamshell.

when the W220 came onto the market Iwas staying in ENGLAND and was given a motorola w220 for my birthday. well not only was I converted from being a nokia fan but that little w220 became the most important and precious part of my life. Two years ago I was diagnosed with Motor Neuron Disease [ALS] and within a year I had lost the abilty to talk.My amazing motorola w220 has been my main source of communication for the last year. It fits in the palm of my right hand and I operate the keys with my thumb to ether send a text message [sms] or merely hand the phone to whoever I am 'talking' to and they read off the screen.The only problem is that it is finally nearing the end of its life [ literally held together with elastoplast. Iknow by now to most people the w220 is a thing of the past but maybe you guys have the contacs to track down onor two of those amazing motorola creations [dont mind how battered they are] regards - Peter - kingsanuk@yahoo.co.uk

Peter, you have probably already tried places like ebay, so all we can suggest is that you widen your search to consider one of the other Motorola RAZR-style models. There were many similar ones and they are all available very cheaply now.

Needed to replace my phone as stolen and just wanted something to call/ text on! It does lack extras that many phones these days such as camera, MP3 etc! However I carry my camera and my ipod with me so I didn't need these! Looks good and seems to work well... Only had a week so can't comment too much! The only downside is that it does tend to pick up grease..I have the black so not too bad but I don't think I would suggest pink or silver for this reason. Also radio is great!

I found this web site because I wanted to see if anybody else was suffering the problems that I have. On the whole, the phone performs excellent and I get over a week between charges even with reasonable call usage. But it has inexplicably powered down a couple of times when I have tried to answer a call (really annoying!!); and a couple of times I have flipped it open to see the message "Enter PIN code", as though it has done a reset. Since only one of the comments below hints at anything like these problems, I think I just have a bad one. Other minor gripe: I sometimes find that the battery cover starts to slip off by itself. But overall, great for the price.

I have had this phone for several months, and found it to be really good. Although this phone doesn't have a lot of fancy extras like a camera or mp3 player they my old phone had, I have found that I actaully use the fm radio more than I ever used the more advanced functions on my other phone! The battery life seems fine to me, it has a nice looking design (several people have commented about how nice it looks, and are always surprised when they hear how cheap it is!) It also seems to be pretty robust! It's survived me dropping it many times. The only downside is that is it rather slow to text with. If you try to text too quickly then it gets confused and can't cope. Other than that, I would say that for the price it's really good, and cheap but stylish phone, then this is a great choice.

Great phone for those looking for a phone to simply make and receive calls and messages. Motorola has developed a phone for a specific target audience and it delivers. Solid build quality and good battery life. It is also small and light. Big, clear text and keypad, which is great for old people such as my grandmother, who really loves her W220 I bought for her. Being a flip-phone, it is handy for those who forget to push a button to hang up or leave the phone in their pocket/bags and don't realise a button is accidentally pushed (yes, grandma, that refers to you too). Menus are kept simple although Motorola still need to work on user-friendliness. It is also rather sluggish.

For a simple functional phone this is excellent. Good ergonomic design and pretty much covers the bases for a deecnt basic phone. I tend to use an ipod for my mp3s and an SLR for my photos, the lack of extras therefore don't bother me. The long battery life and ease of use make this excellent. Highly recommended if you just want to buy a mobile phone and not have to pay for functions you don't use.

i hav a w220 and i personly dont like them. dont get me wrong they look alright and i like the way that when u get a message or a call. A icon lights up on the front(which when is not lit up is invisible). But i want a phone such as the sony ericsson w810i that can be connected up to your pc and can play lots of songs. Which is not as expensive as the nokia 8800.Overall the w220 is a stylish and cool but does not contain enough. It is good for the price, but they could of at least contained a basic song player. I give it 3 stars because it is not amazing for gadgets but looks quite attractive.

I bought this phone for my wife at Christmas. Personally phones with camera and bluetooth are the type of thing that I look for in a phone. For my wife, on the other hand, the simpler the better and for this purpose the W220 is the best phone I have come across. The price, size, easy to use menu and battery life are all excellent. The only thing I have to moan about is the alert tones. You have only a few preset ones to choose from and they are quiet and short. Quite often my wife fails to hear a text when itís in her handbag or in a public place, It would have been nice to select one of the many loud ring tones for a text alert. If you want good looks, simplicity, reliability, this is the phone to go for.

Although this is a basic phone I find I am using it more than my K1 or N73. I have not used the camera feature on any of my camera phones nor am I interested in listening to music from a cellphone. What I want is a phone to be used as a phone and the W220 fits into this excellently. You can also set the SMS delivery report to be always "on" which I am surprised is not capable in the K1. For a basic phone it should be able to have at least a week's standy time like the Nokia 2610 which is the other phone in this category. I have always used Moto, Nokia and the old Ericsson phones and find that generally Nokias have longer standby time while Motos have clearer and louder voice.

I bought this fone last two weeks and it works very well...sometimes one specific key is not functioning properly but all you need to do is to turn off the phone and press it 500 times (lol, that will make sure no rust or dirt will be in the way when you press the specific key. Feature wise, this fone is not at far but it has a decent RADIO and Battery Life. It lasted for about 4 days with minimum usage. What good about this is that it has looks eventhough it's inexpensive...I've got it for 5,500 pesos here in the PH. It gets strong signals and the voice quality is the same as Nokias. Buy the black one...it looks more professional and people sometimes think that you are holding a V3...looks can be deceiving...my fone...girls find it cute and sexy. Buy it...you will not regret it. By the way, this is my first Motorola fone and find the fonts very unique...they looked like handwritten and not robotic unlike Nokias and SEs. If you are on a tight budget and only needs a phone that is reliable for calling and texting...then go for this one.
