Motorola V545 Review

Motorola V80

Just as the V500 was almost identical to the V300, with exception of Bluetoothä, and the V525 was extremely similar to the V500, the V545 does almost nothing to break the 500 series mold. The only exception to this rule is the addition of limited video recording to the mix.

With a digital camera capable of capturing crisp, clear pictures, and a screen that can display those pictures with clarity and a large amount of colors, the V545 should appeal to people shopping for a relatively inexpensive, functional mobile phone/digital camera hybrid. The addition of 15 seconds of video recording will only peak your interest in this phone series.

The internal display screen is indeed bright, and with 65,536 colors incorporating TFT technology, this colorful screen won’t wash out, even in direct sunlight. A bright, vibrant image is what most users want—and Motorola has provided that quite nicely.

Motorola is the king of the flip form, and with the V545 they have proved it again. Slim, sturdy, with stylish curves, the V545 has a firm grip on what people look for in a phone’s exterior, and the features to go with it.

The 500 series added to the flip prowess by integrating Bluetoothä connectivity into the package. Not V545 users can use all their great Bluetoothä accessories to make life easier, especially when driving.

Javaä games, polyphonic and MP3 ringtones, fun lighting, and customizable wallpapers and screensavers make this a great phone for those looking to personalize a handheld device. But this phone is also a good choice for people looking for medium quality features at a fairly low price.

The V545 does not revolutionize the V500 series, so much of what is said there will also apply here. That being said, the V545 is still a stylish, economical phone, and for many people the limited video recording capabilities will be enough to send them over the edge into purchasing this mobile.
