When you first pick up the Motorola V635, it is rather heavy and bulky compared to many new phones on the market. When compared to Motorola's popular RAZR phone, which has most of the same features, the V635 is a relative brick and includes an obtrusive stub antenna.
However, the phone's stylish black and silver lines combined with a bright screen make it a pleasure to use -- if not carry.
The phone's keypad is easy to navigate and contains two soft keys that can be personalised to launch one of the phone's numerous applications. By default the soft keys launch the text message menu and the video camera, so we didn't feel the need to change them. In addition, it also contains a permanent button that launches the digital camera and another that launches the browser.
