Is the Samsung Z540v phone any good? I cant seem to find any reviews on it that are helpful.
Also is it better than a Motorola V3x?

I have been using the Z540v for about 6 months and it suits my needs as a personal phone. On the plus side - I can carry enough music on it for a couple of hours, video call people and buttons are easy to use. The down side - the cameras are slow to react and the quality of them not all that good, music synchronisation does not work with media player and battery life (when bluetooth is on especially) is not too long. The only other thing that is annoying enough to complain about (but not do anything about) is that it is branded to vodafone. There are a couple of menu items missing (alarms tone springs to mind) that are irritating for me so I do not use all the functions.

Overall as a phone for calling and texting people it is good enough.

battery life = 5 days if you dont touch it at all, 1 day if you use 3g or make calls!!!!

Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.
