I'm using since one and half year

I'm using this phone from Dec'2010 and everything is same including the panel. it is a good bet on for the OS and the applications it has got. poor battery back up, still can be adjusted with battery manager and some time the phone hang up and cant answer the call as there is no option of answering … (View complete review)

great clam-shell phone, works like a charm!

Its a great phone, with abundant apps etc.
the only thing that puts me off is that there is no upgrade to froyo OS(2.2) hich allows applications to be moved to SD card. but given the price package, good deal.
I recommend all buyers to go low on the apps to let the battery run for a day!

I bought the phone six months before. Certainly has got no issues in the same. Touch, features & apps. inbuilt are amazing. Its worth @ 7k. Negatives.. as same as any Android handset is battery life even in smart saving mode.

Just the one I needed

I must thank Flipkart first of all for delivering it in time. The phone is a nice choice for a businessman. Though there is a problem with the Operating system loaded in this phone, which is, you must always keep your internet on, otherwise the syncing will stop, and you have to do a factory reset, … (View complete review)

Motorola Charm is Pocket Hercules - Power Packed Phone

I am using this phone currently and this is a fully loaded phone which defy its price (7k). Battery is a concern for a heavy user but you can take the most out of your battery with the help of shutting down unwanted application running in the back ground. Track Pad is very convenient and better than what I was expecting. At 7k you won't get any other phone which can compete with this. I fully disagree with the people who gave a bad rating for the phone for its Android OS 2.1 Eclair. Come on!! We cannot expect Motorola Charm to behave like Pandorra's Box for a price tag of Rs. 6999.

Good looker, well built but PATHETIC battery life and pathetic software

I ordered Charm and got it after one day.
The phone is loaded with features, well built and is a great looker. I even got queries and appreciation at my workplace:) it was kind of good. However the phone software is pathetic and the worst among all phones I have used in past 10-12 years. The android interface is nice but the settings are impossible:-
1.The worst thing is that the phone keep forgetting setting.
2. There is an option of turning off the Haptic Feedback. But even after turning it off, it does not get turned off. The vibration on touching touch keys is irritating at…

MB502 - Good on features that can not perform to capacity. Thumbs down!!!

OS - Android 2.1, Can not be upgraded at all until your death (MotoSupport words as interpreted from various websites) Score: -1
Connectivity - 3G, WLAN, Edge, Gprs and all. Score: 1.
Keypad - Neatly placed QWERTY below the screen, nicely spaced without any problem in last 6 months, not a key has faded its embossed golden keyletters yet, Support for symbols is too bad... like i can not find a greater or smaller than symbol on normal keyboard or even in extra symbols. Score: 5
Display - Brilliant, Awesome! 3" * 2.8" effective screen area. Touch i…

Good phone if you are not expecting extraordinary

Bought this phone more than a month back. Its a nice decent phone for average use. I'll highlist the Pros and cons below:
1. Nice looks. Curious eyes look at it when kept on table. Doesn't have a box like look and feel
2. keyboard is great. i have small and thick fingers, so found comfortable in typing
3. Nice grip. With rubber back, it doesn't feel slippery in hands. Plus its scratch resistant
4. Decent sound output. Earphones are good. Even at high volume, voice doesn't squeal and is clear. Even on call sound is clear at low volumes
5. Touch is responsive. Its ab…

I don't think it's a great buy!

Been a week that I've been using this phone. Flipkart, thanks, you made an excellent delivery. For te phone, I wasn't really impressed.

The looks of the phone are to die for... It looks no less than a high class phone, but I wasn't very happy with the functionalities. It started hanging from the 2nd day onwards, even though there was some internal memory free. The internal memory all in all is VERY less. On an average you can install maximum 7-8 of your downloaded applications at a time. The phonebook's great, but I was really disappointed by the music player.

If there's a s…

Grab it before the price shoots up!

Firstly thanks to Flipkart for prompt service. Got it in 2 working days.

1. Awesome qwerty pad, the feel is real good and keys have a very good feel.

2. Battery last for almost 1.5 days, which is good for a Motorola phone.

3. Awesome music playback

4. Android apps galore

5. 3G,2G and Wifi more than enough to keep you connected to internet.

Immediate things to do after buying

1. Buy a screen guard

Because the battery life does have an impact o…

Very good phone

I have had this phone for over a week now. I am very happy with it. It combines good features (Touch, QWERTY, backtrack, Android) with a stylish look. The battery is OK too--I get close to a day with the display set to low brightness and with Pushmail disabled.
