Motorola W755 reviewed

The Motorola W755's design looks way too familiar but its solid feature set, ergonomic controls, and enjoyable call and video quality make it a reliable Verizon Wireless handset.

The Motorola W755 finally has landed in our hands. I have to apologize for taking so long to review this phone--I know a lot of you were asking for it--but Motorola and Verizon Wireless took their time in getting us a sample model. But now that it's arrived, I can report that it is a solid phone. It depends way too much on the Razr for its design inspiration but it remains a solidly constructed handset with a great display and ergonomic controls. The addition of the purple model is nice as well. The feature set is respectable, save for the lack of editing features in the camera. Performance was mostly good--I enjoyed the call and video quality but the music player and speakerphone were disappointing. The Motorola W755 review gives you the full story or check out the Motorola W755 slide show for a photo gallery.
