Motorola V330 Review

Closed, a 96 x 32 px monochrome screen displays two lines including time, signal and battery strength, phone status information, and even messages to notify users of incoming calls. Above the LCD, a lens to the 0.3-megapixel VGA camera is situated, able to capture images at up to 640 x 480 px in resolution.

Along the left side, volume keys adjust earpiece and ringer volumes during calls and standby. Underneath, a Smart Key allows users to perform frequent basic functions by anticipating likely subsequent actions such as selecting a menu item after it has been highlighted. A Voice Key is located along the right side, used to create recordings or issue voice commands.

A USB-capable data port is housed on the V330's top edge, along side a standard 2.5 mm jack allowing handsfree access through wired headsets. Optional accessories can be attached through the Connector Port located on the bottom, or just a charger.

Flipped open, a 176 x 220 px screen is capable of displaying 65K colors. Positioned below, a 5-way navigation keypad is flanked by Send, Power / End, Browser, Camera, Menu, and Left and Right soft keys. Fairly standard, a numeric keypad allows iTAP predictive text messaging with a few simple key presses.

Out of the box, the Motorola V330 comes with a standard 780 mAh Li-Ion battery, travel charger, hands-free headset, SIM card, and user manual.
