Motorola V186

Discontinued
9th January 2005

 Motorola V186 The Motorola V186 is an upgrade of the V180 handset, we believe aimed at the US market and featuring EDGE data support. Like the V180, the V186 is a fairly basic but lightweight handset, with a 128x128 pixel display in 4000 colours that comes in at around 85 grams.

It's an attractive handset, but a very basic one, with a passing resemblence to other V-series handsets. The rest of the V186's specifications are fairly unremarkable but fairly useful in a low-end device such as this. There's a WAP 2.0 browser, polyphonic MIDI and MP3 ringtones, a built-in speakerphone, instant messaging and interchangeable covers, plus Motorola's Motomixer application for editing ringtones.

The only real difference between the V186 and V180 is EDGE data support, and EDGE is relatively rare in many regions as carriers have opted for 3G networks instead.

There's no Bluetooth on this phone, nor is their a digital camera. Connectivity to a PC is via a Bluetooth cable only, and in our view the small display isn't great for web browsing. It's a little hard to see Motorola's target market for this as EDGE is normally found more often in midrange and high-end handsets. Perhaps this will appeal to businesses on a tight budget, but even then there are much better handsets to be found in the Motorola range.
