The Motorola ROKR E8 mobile phone has your normal video view with the zoom in, zoom out features and the video/camera feature. For those who are video/camera enthusiasts; this is a wonderful plus if deciding to buy this mobile phone. First, let us investigate further into all the features of this ROKR E8 phone.
For many of you who are dedicated multitaskers, this mobile phone has flaws such as having to switch certain modes. If you are in need to pause music or must skip a few tracks, be prepared to having to switch completely out of your current mode as you will need to wait for the new controls to light up; meanwhile switching to the last task you were at in the first place. This is a flaw that can be a killjoy and a big negative for this mobile phone overall.
On a positive note; it has a sleek, slim physique at 10.6mm with a length of 115 mm; around the same measurements as it’s competitor; the iPhone, with a high gloss surface. Another notable downside is the two inch QVGA screen which isn’t a comfortable fit for the other features the ROKR E8 mobile phone has to offer; unlike other phones. This feature would have been nice for movies if only it were a bit larger. Unfortunately there is limited support at H.263 or MPEG 4.
A wonderful change is a microSD slot; 2GB of memory and a headphone jack at approximately 3.5 mm. Unfortunately there are no GPS, WiFI and 3G features to spoil us; but there is an FM radio and voice recorder!
Camera mode on this mobile phone offers no high hopes as there is a low pixel count and horrible image processing. You may as well through in the lack of auto focus and flash. If you are big on camera phones; perhaps this isn’t the one for you.
The scroll wheel is a feature that is hard to get along with. The three quarter wheel allows you to run your thumb fully around it when changing different menu and music options. Fortunately; the wheel is accompanied by glowing dots; allowing the user to be guided left, right, up and down.
The Motorola ROKR E8 comes equipped with Song ID powered by Shazam. Unfortunately the 2 inch isn’t easily read, and is way too small. This mobile phone is okay in some instances; but is held heavily on the negative side.
The Motorola ROKR E8 is pretty much rigged for the music lover in us all; with the ability to store 1,500 songs. This mobile phone is equipped with repeat keys; giving the user functions such as forward, play/pause, back and forward. One shall have the gift of the basic text messaged letters. For some, this feature may be suitable; unfortunately it may not work for all. The looks are great and works well for music; therefore lacking the necessities of a complete phone and camera.
