Another four – lettered bombshell from the house of Motorola, the Motorola KRZR K1 is a sensational device. The handset comes wrapped in good looks and places itself decently between the fashion phones and other serious devices.
The KRZR K1 comes with a narrows frame as compared to its predecessor, the RAZR. Its narrow frame has a hardened blue glass finish at the top, while the back borrows a matte feel of the PEBL. And at the bottom is perforated dimples, to give the phone a modern look. The device's magnesium and polished chrome composition adds to the solid and well built construction – so providing a good feel when held in hands, or placed against the ears. To accommodate the narrow frame, the Motorola KRZR K1 comes with narrow keypad and narrow internal display. But thankfully the trimming down did not spoil the user experience. With the 1.9-inch internal display, the device maintains the same brightness at 65,536 colors and 176×220-pixel resolution. Perhaps the only disappointment in the designing flaw is that the device is really speaking to finger prints.
The Motorola KRZR K1 has bumped up the camera sensor to 2 Megapixels from the RAZR's 1.3 Megapixel shooter. And that's about it. For the camera comes sans photo light and auto focus. There is also no dedicated camera icon in the first-level menu grid. The user interface of the camera is kept simple. There is an indicator about remaining photo that can be taken, self timer, storage media, camera and video mode, self timer, zoom, and an animated D-pad to allow changes in settings for Color Style, Lighting Conditions, 8x digital zoom, Exposure. Beside, there are options for editing. The video mode shoots clips with sound at 15fps.
For music, the device comes with a good music player. It can support popular music formats like MP3, AAC and AAC + files. Multimedia A2DP profile is supported, so music on the phone can be streamed wirelessly to a stereo Bluetooth headset.
Other features of Motorola KRZR K1 is pretty straightforward. The device is a quad-band, and it offers the versatility of EDGE, USB, Bluetooth, GPRS and WAP. There are many messaging options like SMS, MMS and email; while its also features a comprehensive organizer list. Motorola KRZR K1 offers 20 MB of memory and 6 hours of talk time.
