Motorola ROKR E8 music phone

Can it revive the fortunes of the ROKR family

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Naturally, Motorola kits out the E8 with a stereo headset. While this is the average entry-level sort of quality you get with a mobile phone, Motorola does provide the ROKR with a standard 3.5mm headphone socket so you can easily replace them with your own better quality ear-gear.

If you’re keen to use the ROKR for regular music playing, this is recommended, as a decent pair of headphones will reveal a much more impressive audio performance than the in-box set. Sound quality from the player is very good, although we’d have preferred a bit more sonic headroom on the volume – it sounded a bit too low at maximum for our liking.

Music storage equates to 2GB on the phone’s memory and 4GB on MicroSD card

The loudspeaker, while capable of loudish playback, is no great shakes – it’s typically bass-light and tinny at higher volumes.

An FM radio is included as part of the audio spec too, and Motorola has loaded up the phone with SongID track identification software powered by Shazam’s tune identification service – similar in function to the TrackID app bundled on Sony Ericsson phones.
