Mediocre Phone

The Motorola VU204 is just "ok". The battery life is great and the illuminated keyboard is really nice, unfortunately there are pretty much NO features. There is no music player which is a big disappointment. I really like the rubber they used on the back. It feels soft, yet solid. The keyboard feels really cheap and the screen on the inside should have been made bigger. Overall, this is a good phone if you arent going to have it for a long period of time, or if its your first phone. But if you are a texter, I would not recommend it.

Too simplistic and wide design!

I had Krzr which I broke, so I got VU204. When I opened the box, I really liked the design and soft velvety feel of outcover. But, not to my liking,  the phone is lot wider than Krzr and the number keys buttons are from plastic and looks cheap. Inside there is nothing in it, no music player or external memory, which I knew when I bought it, but I kind of regret it now. Sound quality okay I guess. One thing I like is it has dedicated headphone port which was lacking in Krzr.

Design 5/10
Features 4/10
Performance 8/10

Pros

  • Outcover is stylish.
  • Dedicated headphone port.
  • Smaller motorola charger (than one with Krzr).
  • Ok sound quality and reception.

Cons

  • Wider and thick.
  • Number pads feels like cheap plastic.
  • No external memory - no music unless you buy from verizon.

no good

had this phone one week before the inside display went out suddenly - never to come back. so cheaply made you can't even take off the batt cover without damaging it. all around fail. too bad there are no well made basic phones available...not everyone wants all the flash. is there no market for a durable basic phone? jeez.

Motorola VU204

Ergonomical from factor, soft touch shell make this phone a pleasure to hold and will not slip easily. Display is crisp. Fonts are small which Motorola is infamous for. The only setting that a user can adjust the fonts is for dialing numbers. Choose large fonts of course. Vibe is quite strong. Ringtones are pretty generic Motorolas including Verizon Wireless basic tones. Reception is very good. Battery-life has yet to be determined. Turn the display brightness down to 1. That should help. This is a CDMA phone so do not expect "uber" battery-life unless you purchase an extended life battery with over 1000ma. Otherwise not a bad phone for the affordability and performance

Design 9/10
Features 8/10
Performance 9/10

Pros

  • Ergonomical, soft-touch shell(not a fingerprint magnet), reception.

Cons

  • Small fonts, somewhat cramped outer display
