Motorola W755

The Good The sturdy Motorola W755 has a vivid display, well-designed controls, and decent feature set. The call quality is satisfying, and the photo and streaming-video quality are both excellent.

The Bad The Motorola W755 has a poor speakerphone, and its music player was unimpressive. Its camera offers few editing features, and its memory card slot is buried behind the battery.

The Bottom Line 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.

Motorola W755

The Motorola W755 for Verizon Wireless has a lot in common with Moto's Z9 for AT&T. Though it doesn't offer an innovative design or a feature that we haven't seen before, it earns a lot of points for just being solid and reliable. And with a cell phone, sometimes that is all you need. Beyond the W755's familiar face is a solid midrange feature set, easy-to-use controls, a brilliant display, and mostly satisfying performance. The W755 is an affordable $99 with a two-year contract, but you can get it for as low as $19.99 if you buy it online.

Design
It won't take a cell phone geek to notice the W755's strong resemblance to the Motorola Razr. Like its famous predecessor, the W755 has a slim design with a square external display and a tiny camera lens just above. It's not unattractive by any means, but it is very common. Yet even with the similarities, the W755 has its own personality. At 3.9 inches by 1.9 inches by 0.68 inch, it's both taller and somewhat narrower when measured across its front face. Its profile isn't quite as trim, either, but it still manages to cast a svelte shadow. We didn't mind the extra girth as the phone has a very solid and sturdy feel in the hand--this is one phone we wouldn't be afraid to drop. We also liked the soft-touch material on the front and back covers. Not only do they add to the W755's durability, but they also contrast nicely with the shiny silver hinge and spines. The W755 comes in dark slate (aka black) or purple. We reviewed the slate version, but the features are the same on both models.
