That's right. Motorola doesn't like us. I came to this conclusion after I got my hands on a RAZR V3. It's a nice phone, I'll give them that. But it's more looks than anything else.


Firstly, older models of V3 [including the one I've examined - V3r] don't have a slot for a memory card. This means no mp3's, videos and photos in large quantities.

If the lack of support for memory cards wasn't enough, the V3r came with video commercials in *.3gp format. This wouldn't bother me, but the files are protected by 'system' attribute and you can't delete them.

The phone is capable of storing no more and no less than an even hundred SMS / MMS messages no matter how much free space you have. At this day in age, this is unacceptable.

Since the phone is a clamshell, it's equipped with a smaller screen. When the phone is closed, the screen displays time, battery status, network status and souch. When opened, it goes immediately to the Motorola logo. Which I think is too much, since there are already two logos etched into the phone's case.

Of course you can bypass most of these problems by softmodding / hacking the firmware, which I was forced to do. You can free up some space, change around a few things which you are not able to change with just the options menu or even unlock some features. But should you be forced to mess around with system files to get the features you're supposed to be able to access from the get go?

Below you can see how I changed the original Motorola logo displayed while the phone is open.
