...From the Makers of the RAZR...

How does Motorola go from making phones like the RAZR to this? I understand the size accommodates features and all that crap but technology should be progressive. Make it smaller then someone will buy it...but not me, I will not be buying the V365 aka the Moto BRIK.

It is actually not large. It's not RAZR thin but that is suppose to be a high end phone. That is not the market for this phone. It is a mid level phone with PTT. You have to look at the type of customer who will buy this phone for that feature. The camera and size is not their first priority. If you want a high end phone, look for the upcoming KRZR. It would be stupid of Motorola to offer just thin high end phones. They have to diversify their offering b/c the overwhelming majority of customers don't want all of those features. So it is not bad for a mid grade phone. It is already smaller and better than anything that Nextel currently offers. All of their phones are the size of VHS tapes 🤣

I do agree that some people are interested in larger phones, whether they have large hands or want to enlarge their biceps, however this phone is ridiculously huge. In fact, the i870 feature set kills this phone and is 3mm thinner..I mean c'mon it's a freaking Nextel! It's even thicker than the Motorola i730. So if Nextels are VHS tapes this phone is an unabridged English dictionary.

You are crying over 3mm 🤣

Come on now, its a mid grade phone with a few desirable features, not a RAZR which feature wise is a entry level phone. Plus the internal antenna is probably where that extra 3mm is coming from. Once again, there are some features that distinguish entry, mid, and high end phones. Motorola and Cingular are not trying to wow the CU500 or D807 customers. They are going after a particular segment where this phone will do well if the quality is up to par. Want to cry about something, lets talk about why it takes Cingular 3 years to test and approve new phones for shipping.

I agree with you. I am one of those people...
I actually purchased TWO RAZRS in February, and my roommate purchased one. My roommate decided she wanted a SLVR (which is a better phone than the RAZR by far I found out), and what did I decide I actually wanted to do? Downgrade. I went to the old V400 (which doesn't have alot of the cool RAZR features, but it's thick enough that it won't be sliding offa my shoulder, and has better reception). NOW, even though I adore my V400, I'm upgrading to this wonderful little V365. I recieve it Friday actually. I must say, I'm excited about it. It has a super long battery life, and to be honest, I LIKE the way it looks. I know thin is in, but some of us kinda like the way phones used to look and ESPECIAL...

You're kinda self-centered, aren't you? If you don't like it, nobody should be able to get it? I bought this phone SPECIFICALLY because of the size. I do have large hands, and I like the weight. This phone feels solid, and works well. The skinny little phones like the RAZR were simply not comfortable to me as they feel like a flimsy, dainty little toy in my hand. Doesn't mean I'm calling on Motorola to stop making dinky little phones just because I don't like them. Different strokes for different folks, bub.
