Maybe too affordable?

I wouldn't consider myself a rabid fan but I have been with Motorola my entire cellular life. V710, V3m (hacked), and V9m (about to be hacked). I thought I would branch out for my next phone and try a sideways slider with QWERTY. I handled the Rival at the Verizon Store on Tuesday and was a little disappointed. I don't get the color scheme and the buttons seem so un-Motorola and gimmicky. I'm used to something solid with a solid feel and well machined lines that run the length of the cell phone body. The Rival was a puzzle. By the time I'm due for an upgrade hopefully they'll have rolled out something else.

It's a piece of sh*t. The delay on the screen is horrible, and the overall feel of the phone is crap. It is not a normal Motorola.

It's a Kyocera in Motorola skin. That's got to be it.

and the reviewer doesn't seem to hold the build quality against the Rival. Are all Video Tours that positive? Maybe I'll give it another look in the VZW store but I'm still hoping for something a little more polished.
