The "1-Minute" Review
A conventional open-face handset with a bright color screen and a host of the latest features, the c370 is designed for a wide North American audience. Motorola knows that features and specs sell phones, but with this model they appear to have adopted a strategy of maximizing the secondary features while avoiding potentially expensive components, like high-end color displays or digital cameras, that would drive up the unit cost.
The c370's display is a middle-of-the-line 4096-color LCD: fine for most situations, and good for gaming, but which washes out under bright interior lights or direct sunlight. In contrast, high-profile but lower-cost features are closer to the cutting edge: Java support for games and wireless applications, the latest Web browsing technology, MMS support, and GPRS high-speed data transfer using a mini-USB port.
Naturally, the c370 allows you freedom to customize themes, desktop wallpaper, screen savers and polyphonic ringtones, and includes all the standard minor features like voice dial, vibrate, and alarm. Front and back faceplates are both removable, so expect a wide selection of OEM and aftermarket styles to become available.
