“I don’t like typing messages on my phone. Some people get used to it.”
Review of Tracfone Motorola W175 Cell Phone: What’s most important in a cell phone? Ask this question to ten different people and you’ll get ten different answers. The most important thing depends on you, your situations, your needs, how you’ll be using the phone and when. Do you need mobile Internet? Is style the most important thing? What about battery life?
If you’re looking at a Tracfone cell phone, we already know the number one requirement you have – no contract. With that out of the way, you now have to choose a phone. While Tracfone doesn’t have a huge selection, the phones they do have the range in features and fall to both ends of the spectrum.
If you’re considering purchasing the Tracfone Motorola W175 Cell Phone, read on to find out of this phone can live up to your standards.
The body is thin and tall and is plastic all around. It feels light in the hand, yet solid to the touch. It feels like it could survive a drop to a hard surface, though it will suffer cosmetic damage.
The backlight is a pleasant blue color, and the screen is bright and vibrant.
This phone is a candy bar style and features an LCD display with a resolution of 128 x 128. The keypad lays flush with the cell phone and is easy to type on, with a rubbery coating. The navigation dial on this phone is Motorola W175 common shiny, round dial with a menu button in the middle.
There is a headphone port located on the side of the player. The antenna is internal, and the charge/data cable port is located on the bottom of the device.
The W175 features FM radio, which is a nice option for a phone that doesn’t allow music to be transferred to it. This means you’ll always have some music to listen to, and with the long battery life, you can’t really complain.
This phone utilizes Motorola’s ClearTalk technology, which means the ‘voice on the other end’ sounds natural as if you are talking to the person next to you.
This is perhaps the most surprising feature of this thin cell phone. The standby battery time for this phone is long 19 hours, which puts the most phones to the same. This phone can sit uncharged for over two weeks before the battery gives up the game.
The talk time is nearly 10 hours.
Nothing can be transferred to or from the phone. Tracfone disables that port.
With all the phones that Tracfone offers, this one is very nice. It is solid and thin and has the basic phone features needed to make calling a pleasant experience. The battery life is long, and the FM radio is a plus.
