It's been a long time since Motorola came out with a phone I could get excited about. The V878 is compact, good volume from the handset, and excellent RF performance.The OS is different but took me no time to become familiar with it. For all of you who hated Motorola's address book? Your prayers have been answered. The browser is quick....faster than the V600. The camera takes sharp pics as well. The only negatives are: 1. no bluetooth, 2. back battery cover a little flimsy, 3. no police scanner, 4. No fish finder and, 5. no remote car starter.Highly recommended..
