not very good
My krzr was working perfect when i first got it...now that i have had it a few months i realize it isnt worth the headache.My phone beeped for no reason and wouldn't recieve incoming calls after a few weeks, then the camera messed up and added all these little colored speckle things to the picture and whenever i try to go to my media gallery the phone froze as soon as i hit the ok button. Now the camera won't work at all...it won't even open up the application.Design 10/10Features 7/10Sound Quality 8/10Signal Strength 8/10Value for money 5/10

this is an okay phone
this phone is an okay phone. sometimes it freezes on me. But only once in a while. The only thing i do not like about it is that if you drop it, it cracks! many of my friends have cracked it (not me) and they cant wait to get a new phone. It's an excellent phone. Just not the type for me.Design 7/10Features 6/10Sound Quality 8/10Signal Strength 10/10Value for money 7/10

dont buy this phone
This is a beautiful and elegant phone.However the features arent good at all.It constantly freezes.I spend more time resetting my phone.Sometimes when I send text messages.It only sends numbers.
Right now I am waiting for August to get rid of this sad excuse of a phone.I might just say to heck with the customer loyalty incentive.To get rid of this headache will be well worth it.I expected more from Motorola.Design 7/10Features 2/10Sound Quality 5/10Signal Strength 5/10Value for money 1/10

this phone is really cool. it has a lot of useful and great features. its really small, so it doesnt take up a lot of room. i love the touch screen controls on the front for the mp3 player.
but after 1 year and 1month, my phone started acting up. it started freezing and now it is permanently frozen and messed up ( i never dropped it in water or anything like that).
im 15 yrs old and the weird thing is that my dads krzr froze and started working after 3 days, my moms krzr froze and she had to get a new one, and now mine froze and i have to get a new one also. I think its jut a problem that this type of phone has, if the freezing problem happens to many people
ive heard that the moto razr has the same problem also.
therefore , i think this phone is good. just make sure you have insurance incase you expierience this freezing problem. =]Design 6/10Features 7/10Sound Quality 8/10Signal Strength 8/10Value for money 4/10

Very good cell phone
Well my first cell phones where the LG 8600 and the LG 6190 I love Lg but when I saw this phone it seemed different when I got it has great signal usually at 5 bars but it is the same idea as the Razr only looking better then the RazrI think iit was good investment into a the K1mDesign 8/10Features 7/10Sound Quality 6/10Signal Strength 10/10Value for money 5/10

hate the display options
its a good phone for verizon but it needs more display options and more costomization
i think you should be able to change the red toolbar color like
and its also quiet and it needs to be a little louder on listening to the sounds and video
but other than that i like my krzr

Not So Fast
I posted a review about a week and a half ago saying this phone was a good value for the money. I had the battery issue that I thought was resolved by getting a new battery.
It was resolved for about a week. My phone battery is now dead after about 24 hours of standby time. I am headed to the Verizon store today to return this phone. Less than 30 days and I have to charge it daily with little to no use and a strong signal. I have been through two batteries, obviously there is a defect with this phone.
If you like to charge your battery continously and have your phone die at inconvenient times, then by all means buy this phone. If you do not, I'd look elswhere. It is a shame, I really like the design and style of this phone, if the battery worked I have highly recommend it.

My husband has had this phone for about 6 months and has had nothing but problems. First time it was replaced because he would charge the phone and say it full and go to use it and then it would be dead. The last 4 phones have been turning off by themselves. I WOULD NOT GET THIS PHONE!.Design 8/10Features 5/10Sound Quality 1/10Signal Strength 1/10Value for money 1/10

Good phone for the money
I had been looking at phones and reading reviews for several weeks before going with the KRAZR. I really wanted an iphone but didn't want to spend the money or switch my service to AT&T. I looked at Verizons iphone killers and was not impressed. I considered the Blackberry Pearl, but in the end opted to go the cost efficent route with the KRAZR.
The phone feels really good in my hand, it has a nice weight without being to heavy. The size is really great, it fits in my pocket very easily. I love the glass front that so many people have complained about. It does smear with fingerprints very easily, but I take great care to keep it clean and don't mind this. I have always kept my iPod in mint condition so doing that with this phone is second nature to me.
I did have a battery problem with mine from the start. I had to charge it every night or it would be dead in the morning. I was averaging 12 minutes of talking, 2 text messages and signal strength was strong. There was no reason for my battery to perform so poorly. After one week of this I went back to the Verizon store and after some hagling finally convinced the tech to give me a new battery. Now my bettery life is good. After charging over night I have 3 cells of battery life left 3 days later. I am happy if my battery will last 5-8 days. It appears to be on track for that.
I bought the Verizon holster to go with the phone and found a problem with it. Everytime I placed the phone in the holster the music...Design 9/10Features 7/10Sound Quality 7/10Signal Strength 7/10Value for money 9/10

Not so good
I had this phone for a month. This phone is no good. The main problem is the charging cover keeps falling off. I took it back to Verizon thinking it was just the one phone all of them are the same. Also i can't hear whenever i'm talking to some one the speaker is not loud enough and it doesn't hold a charge. No wonder it was free,Design 5/10Features 6/10Sound Quality 4/10Signal Strength 7/10Value for money 4/10

Best to Worst
When I purchased this device it was hands down the best phone I have ever owned. It had great sound, strong signals, and incredible battery life. Then it began to deteriorate. After 8 months, a fully charged battery will give me up to 30 minutes of talk time and about 18 hours of standby time. Since I only use the phone as a phone, that is really significant. I have to charge it 3-4 times per day. The signal strength has weakened significantly and the sound quality is now poor. My wife 3 year old LG is now much better than my KRZR. I now consider this to be among the worst phones I have ever owned and am preparing to trash it.Design 9/10Features 5/10Sound Quality 7/10Signal Strength 2/10Value for money 1/10

I've had my KRZR for just over 6 months now and I am very disappointed with the phone. When I first got it, it seemed great. Nice size and it looks great. But the more I use it, the worse it seems. First thing is that if you leave your phone on for more than a couple of days, the response to button presses gets ridiculously long. It takes more than 5 seconds between the time you press the button to the time the phone reacts. Turning the phone on and off fixes this, but I should not have to do that. My old V710 did not do this. The other annoying thing it does is that it does not display the phone that it is dialing when you use a phonebook entry. Very stupid. Lastly, only 6 months of light use and now the battery can't hold a charge for a day. I'm only getting aoubt 15 hours before I get the annoying dead battery beep. I would not recommend this phone to anyone.Design 9/10Features 5/10Sound Quality 7/10Signal Strength 7/10Value for money 3/10

The phone has had a bad wrap, and it WAS crap when it was first released, after the software upgrades that were released for the phone, its been doing a LOT better. The battery is still a problem. just like all motorola phones, especially if youre gonna be playing music, definately get an extended battery for it.Design 7/10Features 3/10Sound Quality 6/10Signal Strength 8/10Value for money 5/10

sprint motorola krzr k1m is a waste of money
you figure that when you buy such a nice and expensive phone that you would have all the features you could want.i sure was wrong on that note.i found out after buying motorola bluetooth stereo headphones that the motorola website is compatable with the k1m,it is not. you cannot get streaming music over the headphones.i want nothing to do with motorola ever again.i bought many motorola products but i have found that it is all false advertising.never ever believe what the motorola website has to say.also the battery in the k1m isn't very good at all.it runs out very very fast.i will never own another motorola product again.i am destrying all my motorola products and buy a new phone from a company that better represents itself.Design 4/10Features 1/10Sound Quality 4/10Signal Strength 4/10Value for money 1/10

Best buy ever made
This phone is awesome. It is stylish and sleek. Although their are flws to the phone the good out ways the bad. I would not recommend it to people who would use it for work, but i wold recommend it to teens. I just recently got this phone so i have'nt tested it completly. The reception on this phone is amazing, i have at least 3 bars everywhere i go. The battery life is amazing. the only flaw is that it is realy slow but a good buy.Design 10/10Features 10/10Sound Quality 9/10Signal Strength 9/10Value for money 8/10

Better Than Expected
Im an LG person and was very happy with the LG product. I made the switch back over to Motorola and i have to say Im quite impressed with this phone...the battery life, lasts approximatly two day, the call quality, the sleek design which this is a solid phone. Ive read many many reviews about this phone and I have to say Im quite impressed thus far.(Having it 1 Week) This phones solid and durable, however Im yet to drop this phone yet, hearing so much about the front portion which is glass....have to make sure u get a clip on case so u dont cracke it.All in all decent phone...Great Job MotorolaDesign 9/10Features 10/10Sound Quality 8/10Signal Strength 7/10Value for money 10/10

great but slow
I love the phone but its response time slow and it gets slower as time goes on in about 2 weeks its unbareable I have to remove battery and do a hard reset and seems to fix it for about 2 weeks.... (i think its a memory leak problem)
Verizon said they a working a firmware fix and it is a known problem... I guess they like the Gates theory get it market first fix it later....Design 10/10Features 5/10Sound Quality 10/10Signal Strength 8/10Value for money 5/10

Great Phone - Sprint
This phone is a major improvement over the RAZR that I used to own. Call quality is amazing and the UI is much better than Verizon. I wish it had an external light for missed calls, and A2DP Bluetooth (minor request) Menus are a slightly sluggish, but firmware update is on the way to fix this. This phone is great from Sprint.Design 9/10Features 8/10Sound Quality 10/10Signal Strength 10/10Value for money 8/10

Great style but very slow!
Well to start off I love the new modern look to it. But once you start to mess with the features on the phone you start to notice its a little slow it takes a couple of seconds to react once you push a button. The battery life on this phone also only lasts a couple hours I have to recharge my phone at least three times a day which is rediculous! Now the sound on the phone is very good so I am really excited to get the music essentials kit. But I hope that the music on my phone is not goin to be the only thing I love about my phone because that comes on most phones these days!Design 10/10Features 7/10Sound Quality 9/10Signal Strength 8/10Value for money 7/10

Motorola KRZR K1m
Very good phone! I love it, just wish that Verizon had better features for this phone such as the Motorola KRZR for Cingular/T-Mobile. But over all I love phone. Very stylish, sleek, and feels good to hold. :)Design 10/10Features 10/10Sound Quality 10/10Signal Strength 10/10Value for money 10/10
