>> Hi, I'm Kent German, senior editor here at CNET.com. Today I'm gonna take a first look at the Motorola W755. This is a new phone from Verizon Wireless Service. I know a lot of you have been waiting for a view of this phone. I'm sorry it took so long but Motorola just took us a long time to get this review model but we finally have one in house. This comes in a couple of colors. You can see this is dark gray color here. I do like the design of this phone a lot. You might think that it is based a little too much on the RAZR as Moto tends to do but overall it is solidly built, it's well constructed. I like all the metal up here in the side, top of the hinge is really sturdy too, it folds back. It does fold a little behind the rear face, you can see that. That's not typical and it really doesn't make that much of a difference unless you're trying to hold the phone against your shoulder then it can make the phone just a tiny bit unwieldy. But overall, pretty solid design, well built. It does have some dedicated music controls around the display. There are touch controls. It doesn't really have a push feeling, nothing really tactile that give you some feedback. Also in the outside you have a speaker phone key which is nice and a bluetooth key which is also a kind of a cool thing. Here on the side we have a volume rocker. We have the Moto multi-function buttons that we see on other phones and in the side we have a mini USB port. Over here we have a voice dialing button and a headset jack and right here you do have the camera lens. There is no flash but you can use this screen down here as a self portrait mirror. Inside, very brilliant display, it was pretty nice, colorful. I thought it could be a little tiny but bigger for the phone size here but overall it did its job well. Down below we have a couple of soft keys, dedicated camera, video button, clear key and talk and end keys. There's also a power button. It's a pretty standard Moto design as far as these controls go but there was a little bit of tactile definition so I did find them easy to use, user-friendly and ergonomic. Keypad buttons, they also have a little bit tactile definition, mostly flat with the phone. You can feel that you're actually pressing the key. Of course you need know which key is which, but the numbers in the keypad are kind of big which is nice and they're brightly backlit as well. Phone does have nice thin profile. It does have a solid but lightweight feel on the hands. Inside you'll find VCAST music, VCAST video player, bluetooth, the camera, basic organizer features, all the features you'd expect from sort of midrange Verizon VCAST phone. I'm Kent German and this is the Motorola W755. ^M00:02:10 [ Music ]

Motorola W755 - black slate (Verizon Wireless) Review
The good: The sturdy Motorola W755 has a vivid display, well-designed controls, and decent feature set. The call quality is satisfying, and the photo and streaming-video quality are both excellent.
The bad: The Motorola W755 has a poor speakerphone, and its music player was unimpressive. Its camera offers few editing features, and its memory card slot is buried behind the battery.
The bottom line: The Motorola W755's design looks way too familiar, but its solid feature set, ergonomic controls, and enjoyable call and video quality make it a reliable Verizon Wireless handset.
