Motorola V360 (T-Mobile)

The Good The Motorola V360 has solid talk-time battery life and comes with Bluetooth, a music player, a speakerphone, a crystal-clear display, and an expandable memory slot.

The Bad The Motorola V360 has a poor external display, a dull design, and average picture quality. Also, there's no flash for the camera, and applications can load slowly.

The Bottom Line The Motorola V360 abandons the flashy for the functional. Although the design is a step backward from the last model in the product line, it's outweighed by attractive features.

Motorola V360 (T-Mobile)

Motorola V360

The Motorola V360 evokes little emotion. Of course, except for models such as the Razr V3, Motorola tends to be low on visual appeal and high on function. A less-patient person may disregard this phone because of its looks, but we stand by the old mantra of "Don't judge a book by its cover." T-Mobile's V360 is a solidly constructed, feature-rich handset that makes a quantum leap from the V330, the previous model in the product line. This lightweight handset is perfect for the consumer who is on the verge of discovering that cell phones are so much more than just a phone. We may be a bit nitpicky, but the design of the Motorola V360 falls short of the vision seen in Motorola's more fashionable cell phones, such as the Razr. The handset is a two-tone blue and silver with a matte finish. The front flip is mostly blue with a silver border around the LCD and a silver U-shaped design element on the outer edge. The U-shaped design continues inverted, in the interior of the phone, and even though we think we understand what Motorola was trying to accomplish, we just don't like it.

With nearly the same dimensions as the last-generation V330, the Motorola V360 measures 3.5 by 1.9 by 0.9 and weighs only 3.9 ounces, lighter than the V330's 4.2 ounces. We applaud Motorola for doing away with the external antenna, which helped the V360 fit nicely in our pocket. We also like how it felt in our hand when closed, but in the open position, it felt too flat against our ear. We applaud Motorola for increasing the size of the external display, but a grayscale screen is hardly an upgrade from the V330's two-tone blue. The backlight setting is not adjustable, and we weren't able to display pictures or wallpaper. We do like the addition of the date, which is added to the time, as well as the battery-life and reception bars, but we still don't get photo caller ID.
