The Motorola E815's overall shape and size were similar to other Motorola clamshell designs. The E815 phone is pretty feature-rich: 1.3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth® wireless technology, integrated MP3 player, PIX and TXT Messaging, Mobile Web 2.0 (Internet news, VCAST) and a 1000 contact directory.
Volume and Smart/Speakerphone keys are on the left side, trans-flash memory card slot on top, photo and voice recognition keys on the right. Trans-flash is yet another flash memory card sized for small devices like cell phones... you don't want to hear what I have to say about this. OK... I think it is crazy to keep making new card formats. Why don't they just put out a REALLY small chip and sell us new adaptors instead???
The E815 uses the standard Motorola power connector so it should work with all of the accessories that supports that format. The built-in speakerphone is on the back. The quality of the sound from the ear speakers and the speakerphone were fine for voice calls.
We loved the quality of both the internal and external displays. Both were clear and bright in daylight. The keypad was backlit. A nice usability feature in low light situations.
The integrated 1.3 megapixel camera was very easy to use. Photos can be take in several different quality resolutions (160x120, 320x240, 640x480, 1280x1024). The camera can also be triggered by an auto timer. Motorola had included a built-in flash (red arrow below) on the cover.
