    Design

    In terms of design, Motorola went for a sleek, business-like black and silver color profile. The glossy black finish of the phone face contrasts in a good way with the brushed silver side and back casing. Additionally, "concealed" within the black front casing is a low-res color display which not only adds to the eye-appeal of the phone but also serves to display the time. However, the V710 is anything but slim. At almost an inch thick and weighing in at a hefty 4.5 ounces, its sure to make its presense known in a pant or shirt pocket.

    Lets take a look at the V710's design from several angles:

     

    This side of the V710 shows the consistent silver and black styling of the phone as well as the volume-adjust buttons and the speakerphone toggle. Also of note is the bulk of the phone, which is more obvious in this view.

     

    Same styling applies to this side, but note the silver top of the antenna which matches the silver of the camera lens casing as well as the side buttons and front motorola insignia. The button closest to the antenna is the camera toggle, and the other one activates the speech recognition feature.

     

    This view shows the bottom area of the V710 and its accessory and power slots.

     

    The top end of the phone is where the memory card slot and headset jack are locted, both protected by fitted rubber coverings. For a multimedia phone, as Motorola sells the V710 as, room for additional storage is crucial. Fortunately, the V710 designers placed the card slot so that it would not distract from the phone's overall design.

    The interior of the V710 features a sizeable 2.2" color display and silver keypad set against dark gray. Taking advantage of the large size of this phone, Motorola has implemented large num-pad keys, a circular 4-way navigation button and other shortcut keys. The keypad is backlit.
