Review

Motorola MOTO VU204 (Verizon Wireless)

Motorola released two new phones for Verizon Wireless earlier this month when it introduced the Rapture VU30 and the VU204. Both phones offers similar designs, but take different approaches to functionality. While the Rapture VU30 offers a high-resolution camera and 3G multimedia, the VU204 takes a more low-key angle. Though you'll find Bluetooth and support for the VZ Navigator GPS service on the VU204, the camera is just VGA and basic communication remains a central theme. The candy bar design has a minimalist appeal, with a solid construction and well-designed controls. You can get the VU204 for just $29.99 with service, but it's even a bargain at the full price of $79.99.

Design
The Motorola VU204 offers a basic flip-phone design, but it goes a long way toward achieving both appeal and ease of use. We like the clean lines and rounded edges, and the soft-touch material on the rear face gives the phone a nice feeling in the hand. The battery cover is a bit cumbersome to pry off, but, overall, the VU204 has a sturdy construction. And at 3.54 inches tall by 2.09 inches wide by 0.76 inch thick and weighing 3.4 ounces, the VU204 won't bog you down.
