This Motorola V80 review is based on a technical analysis of the cell phone's technical specifications, it doesn't constitute an actual hands-on review. It outlines the strong and weak points of the Motorola V80. The strongest points are listed with a (+) sign while the weakest points have a (-) sign before them. This Motorola V80 analysis is generated automatically based on our specifications for that phone and because manufacturers do not always detail technical specifications clearly, some information may be missing.
(+) Weight and Size: The Motorola V80 weighs only 3.53. This is rather lighter than average and should make this phone comfortable to carry around(+) Camera: It features a camera (camera), which is not a necessary feature but may be useful and make your experience better.

A color display is useful when browsing the wireless web or viewing pictures and, of course, the larger it is, the better the experience and, the more colors, the better your pictures will look.(-) Analog Roaming: It doesn't support analog roaming. Analog is the older North-American cellular technology, however North-American networks are increasingly converting to large digital-only networks, which makes analog a not-so-useful feature (check coverage maps for your area to discriminate on that aspect).(+) Bluetooth: It is Bluetooth-enabled, which is an interesting plus. Bluetooth is not really necessary but may be handy if you want to use a wireless headset or exchange data with your (Bluetooth-enabled) laptop, for instance.(-) Infrared: It doesn't feature an infrared port. Infrared is convenient, especially if you own a laptop (most laptops are infrared equipped), you can then use your computer to transfer contacts, ringtones or pictures (if the phone supports these functions) to the Motorola V80.(+) Text Messaging: It features a special way of typing text, either a full keyboard or some predictive text entry method such as T9 or iTAP. This is useful if you need to send short messages: it's much faster.(-) Voice Note: It doesn't have a voice note recorder. A voice note system is quite useful to make quick notes and reminders while on the road.(-) Free Custom Ringtones: . We don't have sufficient information on the Motorola V80 to determine if it accepts custom ringtones in a free do-it-yourself manner so you may not be able to add free ringtones, you may be forced to use your carrier's paid ringtone service. If that matters to you, many other phones allow you to do it yourself and for free, which makes a difference if you're planning on personalizing your phone. To help assess this phone's behavior with ringtones, check out the ringtone compatibility list.
