motorolla charm- good pick for first time andrioders

i bought motorolla charm about a couple of months back from a retail shop. the phone is a fine piece with good touchscreen experience and social network integration (fb and myspace). this phone stands out for the ease with which you can message and write emails, as there aren't any other qwerty andriod phones out there.
the battery life is pretty ordianry with a charge required every night,
the camera gives good pics only in good sunlight, otherwise its average for such price range, the phone...

Too little internal memory

The phone comes with Android 2.1, which means that you cannot install applications onto the SD card unless you root your android, by doing which you risk losing manufacture warranty. And the internal memory is too less, a great part of which is occupied by Moto Blur app. So all in all if you are an app-freak and want to have an app for just about everything on your phone, then this phone is not for you. Otherwise if you are just looking for a cool android phone with combined features of Qwert...

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 c...

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 turnin...

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. S...

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!!...

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...

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.
