    I'm trying to decide which of these phone to get and am having trouble with
    the battery specs. Can anyone explain why Motorola's standby and talk time
    are nearly three times that of the Nokia's. Is it that Motorola has
    developed a much more fficient battery/chio combo than Nokia or is it that
    The power requirements are less because the Motorola's output wattage is
    less (which would result in more dropped calls, etc...)?

    Any relevant feedback is welcome
    Steve

    Re: Motorola v120 vs Nokia 5100 series

    The TracFone nokia 5165 (TDMA) has more stand-by time than the 5180i (CDMA)
    and they both use the same battery (900 mAh)..

    The size of the battery on the 120c and 120t TracFone(s) is 1100mAh.

    Nokia makes a 1500 mAh battery for the 5100 series phones too by the way.

    The 120c is trimode and the 5180i is dual mode.

    Hope this helps.

    Recent Motorola phones have much better power-management. They get quite a
    bit of performance out of their battery. However, the more you talk, the
    less of an advantage you get. But yes, the v120's are now among the best
    phones for battery life, for the size.

    It's probably also due to the different battery technologies apparant in
    the types of phones

    nokia phone's still use the relativly old fashioned Lithium Ion
    battery's which aren't very conservative with power.

    Most other company's, (motorola) are starting to move towards the
    Lithium Polymer technology, making battery's more powerful per/size. or
    just smaller.

    maybe this helps

    We purchased Verizon service with 10 free V-120 phones for our
    employees. I am now trying to get the phones replaced as they don't
    work well. This is not an occasional problem and is causing
    communication problems with staff in the field. Not only is it
    impossible to place many calls, but if a call does connect, it is
    dropped repeatedly. I cannot use the phone from my home in Springfield
    Illinois at all.

    We have found that the V-120 is only usable if the caller is very
    close to a cell tower. In side by side tests of this phone; in the
    same location where the V-120 does not work, a cell phone with an
    antennae (i.e. LG LX-4400, Motorola T-720, Audiovox CDM-9000, Motorola
    V2260)) will work on the Verizon network.

    Was this a v120c or a v120e?
