The KRZR K1M is the RAZR’s better-looking sister. Looking more like a fashion accessory than a piece of technology, the K1M is an attractive iteration in the firmly established RAZR franchise.

The K1M is a CDMA phone (Sprint, Verizon, Bell, Telus, etc.) that runs on the high-speed EVDO network, provides a WAP browser which, combined with its 176x220 pixel internal display, creates a passable internet experience, and rounds out its feature set with 64MB of onboard flash memory, expandable microSD memory slot and a mini USB port for PC syncing. It also includes illuminated external MP3 controls and a phonebook that can store up to 1,000 contacts. The K1M provides a variety of ways to customize the look and sound of your device. This clamshell also features a 96x80 pixel external display, useful for checking the time.

One interesting improvement over prior versions is the keypad. Although it looks similar to the RAZR keypad, it actually uses a technology called electroforatic deposition, a fancy phrase that means the keys are soft to the touch, with an almost rubbery feel.

If you are a fan of shiny phones, you will definitely enjoy the look and feel of the Motorola KRZR K1M. Good sound quality for phone calls and a competent MP3 player makes this flip worth a look.

Design is neither original nor innovative

from Wired (over 7 years ago)

The RAZR is the runway models of cell phones: anorexic but fashionable. The new KRZR K1 is the same runway model, but with more memory, a shorter chassis, and a bigger bottom. Yet somehow we found it strangely more desirable than a RAZR. Our unit came outfitted with nifty MP3 playback and VCAST services... More

not a very good battery life

(over 3 years ago)

I had this kind of phone for 2 years. It was a pretty good phone but the battery life just wasnt the best. The phone would die in less then a day. I always had to make sure that i was charged up. This phone also would make a very loud noise when your battery is going dead and there is no way to turn... More

Good phone, fragile outer cover

(over 3 years ago)

We've received a great number of K1M and K1 phones all with the same issue - the outer cover seems to either get smashed easily or several hundred people are pretty clumsy. Probably a combination of both factors but the phone doesn't seem to be very durable.

Ok phone

(over 4 years ago)

I have had mine for 2 1/2 years now I had some trouble with it in the beginning, it wouldn't stay charged (it would go dead after 1 hour on stand by!) sent it back they fixed it and never had a problem again, it has great reception ( I am in an area where it is very hard to have good reception... More

It was okay...

(over 4 years ago)

Like a lot of other reviews I've seen on here, my cell phone also deletes random contacts when I add new ones. I've had it for about a year and am looking for a different cell now. The numbers started wearing off a couple months into using it and now they're basically gone. It freezes... More

It had its moments

(over 4 years ago)

I bought this about a year ago, it hasn't been THAT bad... Pros: - it looks really nice, i have the one in red and i can't find many other red phones - it has a display in the front so it makes picture taking better so you can see yourself - I also very much like its t9, it made texting without... More

Awful Phone!!

(over 4 years ago)

I got this phone a year ago(Nov 08) and have had nothing but issues with it!! I got it on Telus prepaid and it is the worst piece of technology I have used!! I have had many phones and this was by far one of the worst!! The keypad wore completely away within 3 months, the headphone attachment broke off,... More

No problems

(over 5 years ago)

Unlike many other reviewers on here, I have never had a problem with my phone. Ive had it for about 2 years. I have even dropped it a bunch of times and nothing bad happened. The only bad thing i noticed is when adding contacts, the phone is not smart enough to use a unused "speed no." and... More

Battery Life WORST EVER

(over 5 years ago)

I bought my KRZR in June 2008. Battery dies in Feb 2009. Replace battery in Feb 2009. New battery dies Nov 2009. Replace battery again in Nov 2009. Arrrgg. Ridiculous battery life. I am a HUGE fan of Motorola and have always bought Motorola since 1995. The KRZR has really ticked me off. If the battery... More

Don't waste your money

(over 5 years ago)

I've had my KRZR for almost 2 years. It started out decent (compared to what I had before) but now the battery won't even last a day with average use of calling and texting. (I use my cell phone as my alarm so I have to charge it every evening now) Also about 6 months ago it started randomly... More
