Motorola V195 (T-Mobile) review: Motorola V195 (T-Mobile)

 

With all the hype over Motorola's Razr , it's easy to forget the company still produces handsets that aren't all about style. Take T-Mobile's Motorola V195 for instance. Designed with simplicity in mind, it makes no effort to chase the thin-phone...

The Motorola V195 has well-designed controls and a decent feature set, including Bluetooth, world phone support, and a speakerphone.

The Motorola V195 audio quality had static at times in our tests.

Despite varying call quality, the Motorola V195 is a solid choice as a basic cell phone.

Snapshot: Motorola V195

 

With a huge 1020mAh battery, the Bluetooth capable Motorola V195 manages up to 10 hours talk time and 21 days standby - all in an attractive clamshell design. It won't break your IT budget, either.

"An oldie but goody; a great phone throughout the years."

 

A tribute: I just gave in and got an iPhone 4s, but I am keeping my battered but sturdy little Motorola V195. It's 2012 and this phone is still going strong 6 years later. The battery still lasts for a week if I don't make a lot of calls! It's kind of...

Battery life

High radiation levels - 1.6 watts per kilogram, which is the maximum amount of radiation allowed by the FCC in the US and Canada. This info is easy to find online, and a number of reviews exists for this phone.

Good for parents

 

I hope it lasts. It was good for the price when I picked it up on the Shell Shocker. Thanks Newegg!

Pretty basic phone that does what it's supposed to. Unlocked phone, slid a T-Mobile SIM in it, works fine so far. Speaker feels a bit cartoony, but sound quality seems fine. It likes military time for some reason

Hope I didn't blow the speaker >.< A music player and a microSD slot would have been a nice plus, but for parents and people who just want a phone, this is great. OH! If you have the My Faves service with T-Mobile, this won't display them, but...

Basic Phone

 

Its basic. Large number buttons. loud ring tones. Good for starters, seniors

NONE..if you are looking for just a phone

voice quality: awful

 

I have about 7 cell phones in my household at the moment, and from all the phones I have had in the last 10 years or more... whether is a $30 or a $300 phone, I have never been able to find a phone with voice quality to match my 1st phone: an ericsson...

It works, has all the necessary 'basics" for a phone

except what a phone is all about: Voice quality. not worth more than $3 (for a back up phone, and even then....)

Excellent, no-nonsense phone

 

Good phone, haven't found any quirks in over a year. Sound is excellent. No camera (which is what I wanted). A great straight ahead phone for people who still use phones for talking (imagine that)

None yet

Motorola V195 Blue Unlocked GSM flip phone with Bluetooth - OEM

 

my 2cond cell phone I had (2002) nokia 6310i. I did not have to recharge it for 14 days. With an unreal sound quality and all the features as mentioned above. That was a phone.

it is a phone, it rings, it vibrates, the sound quality is good, has alarm clock. What else do you need. it is unlocked, it is cheap

battery life is probably 3-4 days or so ; Something was missing in the settings, but I forgot what it was. Menu is somewhat intransparent, but everyone is different there
