Had V60 hated screen, got this. color is dull, phonebook decent, people have hard time hearing me, microphone on top section. No Express network. Brew nothing great. Expensive. Bulky. Going back to V60 till Kyocera 7135 comes out. I want a color phone that you can see numbers well!!

purchased the z800 and at first sight i liked it. days went on and i started hating the phone. the phone heats up while talking and the microphone being in the top of the phone made it hard for people to hear me. for a phone to cost so much it seems like it would have had a calendar and voice activation dialing. verizon should have trashed this a long time ago. my audiovox 9000 is a much better phone. waiting for my motorola t720.

Bad phone with nice screen. Wait for the Motorola T720.

Working for RadioShack, I always get the latest phone as soon as it comes out. I must say though, this one didn't impress at all. Probably the worst phone I have ever used. For $400 I would never even consider it after using it, and if I had to pay the service, I wouldn't even use the phone if it was free. The BREW works great, and games are fun, but the lack of 1xRTT (Express Network) makes it extremely cumbersome and slow to download apps. The style of the phone, though an attention-grabber, is a little too radical, a little too large, and very difficult to get out of the holster and flip open, especially since it flips upside-down, with the antenna pointing down in its closed position. Very heavy, poor battery life, and reception is horrible. People on the other line could not understand me. Menus are nice, screensavers and ringers great, but besides that, the phone has very few, if any, useful features. I returned this after trying it for about 12 hours and decided to go with the LG-VX1. Though it lacks a color screen, at the time it was half the price, much smaller, lighter, external caller-id, better reception, more features, Express Network capable, and had very good sound quality. The Z-800 was just a failed attempt at rushing a color-screen phone to the market to compete with Sanyo's 5000/5150 phones. Better screen, but that's where it ends. Sprint's sanyo definitely takes the prize, and the 5150 is cheaper at that. This phone is a wonderful toy for the tech lover, but absolutely useless as a phone or communication device of any type. Very dissapointing. Wait for the Motorola T720.

Almost doesn't cut it...

I work for a wireless company in the Technical arena. I purchased the Z-800 excited about the color screen and the features that it offered. Shortly after receiving the new mobile I started to learn what it could and could not do. There were too many shortcomings for the phone.
1) Microphone placement.
2) Sound quality of speaker.
3) Phone will not notify of a new voice mail message after the first alert. (This was the main reason the phone was returned. I am not the type person to constantly open a phone to see if I missed a call or voice mail.)
4) Battery life is short. (I can understand this problem per it is processing a color screen.)

After owning the phone for 3 days I returned the phone missing the games and the color screen. Although this was not the phone for me, the Z-800 still had some strong points.
1) Menu was easy to use.
2) Decent managing software for phone.
3) Every one that notices the phone states, “That is cool”.
4) Brew.
5) To be the first phone of its kind, Job Well Done
