The phone feels very good and holds a call very well. The external display is fantastic showing time and date in normal mode and then either text messages or who is calling. A nice blue background light is used for both displays.
The V60 gives the user the feel of having an actual tool in their hands, and not just a small plastic toy. Motorola accomplishes the feat of making this phone feel less flimsy by using a brushed aluminum case and carbon fiber inserts on the face of the phone. Not only does this give a better feel to this phone, but also it jumps up in a level of styling that Motorola has not reached before. Motorola has improved upon their button layout in the V60. . One of the more noticeable differences is improving on the layout of the smart key and volume buttons on the side of the phone. Motorola also has added a separate scroll button on the middle of the face that makes WAP browsing easier. This display on the V60 is much easier to read than on previous models. The back lit LCD display is clearer and easier on the eyes. The V60 also has a small caller-id display located on the outside of the phone. Similar in size to a pager's display, this is a helpful function for seeing who is calling with out having to pick up and open the phone. When not receiving a call, the external display functions as a clock for those few times you are caught with out a watch.
