I've seen many many reviews and comparisons with these 2 phones, And there doesn't seem to be one clear winner. Many people say the 815 has the best reception which I really care for but there are many complaints about the charger, the soft vibratons and freezing which I also care for but not as much. I'm leaning toward the 8300 because I'm going to buy the phone without a plan so I cannot just easily return it. Whatever is choose is pretty much final. For anyone who has both or has used both for more than a week, is this a good choice?
yes it is true that the Moto E815 does get slightly better reception than the 8300 but usually in terms of there being more bars. The 8300 may not always show as many bars as the E815 shows but the quality of the calls makes up for it. The sound on the 8300 is in my opinion much better than the E815 in terms of volume and clarity. Peoples' voices sound a bit better on the LG not to mention louder. With the LG you get a nice conversation with no voices going in and out unless you are bordering on or in a total dead zone. Don't get me wrong, the E815 is a great phone and I loved it when I owned it, but I do definitely consider the VX8300 to be a step up. Hope this helps.
The Razr V3 sucks period. The outer display is useless. It is so dim that it's barely visible even indoors, and the inside display while very nice indoors turns completely black outside making both displays worthless. The outside keys are idiotically placed on the top flip of the phone so you have to have fingers of about 7 inches in length just to reach them or you have to hold the phone away from your face with one hand and press the buttons with the other. The memory card requires you not only to take off the back panel but the battery as well which is a very foolish design flaw. You can't have the phone vibrate while it's ringing and the vibrate strength is just about as horrible as the one on the E815. The E815 was a great phone, but i... (continues)
oh my goodness i love this guy!!!! i was just going to write that V3 sucks period!!! damn you got that right partner... seriously don't even thinking about getting the V3m or E815. 8300 is LOT LOT Better and you will never regret it... Serriously i mean just look at the e815's crappy camera.... you have to admit that all~~~ motorola's camera sucks!!! LG and Samsung has so much better camera quality.... LG blows out on E815 and V3m TRUST ME!!! 😁
Once again it comes down to which one you feel more confortable with. I had the E-815 since it came out and wasn't pleased with the reception, especially in W. Texas and Oklahoma (I travel a lot) so I got the 8300 at full retail. I have tried a large variety of phones and I enjoy the features and sound quality on this one. The best I have had so far. Ease of use and sound quality are excellent. Good luck on your choice.
