Ok let's put this one straight, the Motorola E398 defiantly has the new WOW factor in up-to-date mobile phone technology, I wasn't entirely sure that I wanted a new phone as I still own the E700 but I wanted to go for something with a WOW factor. I...

MOTOROLA E398

 

THE ultimate pedestrian accessory back in the early 1980s was the "boom box" -a 76cm long, 12lb music machine that urban youths proudly carried on their shoulders.

The youth market segment will become the most important for manufacturers during the upcoming years, first models targeted for this segment will be released during this summer. Unlike the phones released for youth earlier, these will be completely...

The phone's design is performed in calm manner, it is not screaming. The edges were slightly rounded, this creates good impression from overall phone's shape. The plastic which is similar to rubber by tactile impressions is used for the construction...

Motorola E398 review: A small stereo jukebox

 

Motorola E398 phone freely follows all company's previous V-models but the construction is classic and besides other functions it comes up with a revolutionary feature: it has two speakers and can play MP3 loud and in stereo.

With its dimensions of 108 x 46 x 21 mm Motorola E398 belongs to mid big handsets. The construction is classic, with a keypad on the front. The front side is dominated by the active colour display, which sizes respectively are 30 x 37 mm. It features...

Motorola E398

 

Motorola's music mobile combines a full-featured handset that will appeal to a wide range of users whether they're looking for fun, functionality or the perfect mixture of both.

Simple, stylish design ; Large, bright screen ; Stereo sound for MP3s ; VGA camera with flash ; Expandable memory

No video recording function ; No FM radio ; Joystick can be fiddly

Motorola have really done well and the E398 does perform in all aspects of my review except for a few small problems which people can get used to over time. Plus, the fun and functional features overtake any problems.

The E398 is certainly an entertaining phone, even though it's maybe not the most innovate thing you'll ever see.

Motorola E398

 

This is truly a great product from Motorola, eclipsing even the hype of the V66, the MPx200 and the V80. Those models enjoyed a good marketing campaign, but if the initial indications are anything to go by, the E398 will probably be Motorola's best...
