Honestly, I haven't used the a530 or a650...I own the a670 and can give you a review on this phone...

First, do you absolutely need tri-mode or is an all-digital phone workable for you? a650 is tri-mode...a670 is all-digital.

The a650 doesn't have a front display. The a670 does. Is this a necessity or can you live without it?

The a650 doesn't have a camera. The a670 does. For me this is a cool toy, but not a necessity.

This being said, the 2 phones are comparable. The size is comparable and is nice and compact. The buttons are still large enough to maneuver through the menus. The a670 has good, solid reception and crystal clear voice clarity. The ringtones are fairly loud (some would disagree I guess, but I find them acceptable) and the vibrate mode is super strong!

The a650 and a670 have the voice-activated dialing...this is a great feature.

I had the motorola v60i prior to this phone. I didn't know if I would like it as I loved the v60. I honestly can say I like this phone.


You have to reprogram the Auto Answer when you don't have the headset doesn't turn off automatically.

The battery life could be better. I've noticed, though, that at 3 bars (full) and 1 bar it holds for a long time. For some reason, the 2-bar mode fades fast.

No analog. For me, this is no big deal. But others may rely on this mode depending on where you live.

Hope this helps as a start...
