Review : Motorola H800
The phone is covered by hard and soft plastics, perhaps partly the reason the H800 is extremely light. As for the call and volume buttons, this further increases the attractiveness of the device.
The slider serves mainly as an indicator to the status of the headset. Press the call button and the slider ejects itself, then the headset is automatically activated. If the slider is left open after the call, it goes into standby mode, when the slider is pushed back to the original position, the headset is turned off.
The sound quality is also quite decent, at maximum volume the headset reverberates and itís loud enough to deafen, so there is no need to hunt for quiet locales to take your calls.
However, one misgiving about the headset is that it could not fit snugly into several earlobes specifically the protruding area where the speakers are. On the upside, the device is remarkably comfortable and didnít weigh down the ear. The call quality is not too badly affected however, and still works.
Another hassle is the micro USB charger, which is provided as an extension to your standard mini-charger port. Switching between the micro and mini chargers for your phone and your H800 is a pain altogether, perhaps the chic-ness of the device is needed to be maintain in order to eliminate any unsightly ports. Furthermore, the placing of the charger port makes charging a little more difficult that it should.
The manufacturer claims that the headset can last up to six hours of talk time and eight days on standby mode. After an inadvertent test by this reviewer the device does seem to have an impressively long standby time, after the device was left on at night.
At RM 338, the device is decidedly expensive, but it is still comfortable and good looking enough and packs a lot of good qualities then bad ones. Moto users can look to his headset as an excellent albeit expensive addition to their phones.
