    ModeShift controls?

    NHS IT guy is correct, the Moto V8/V9 had this feedback.

    HOwever it really doesn't matter, this phone will flop, and flop hard, why would you choose it over the similarly priced SE W910i (about £210) or perhaps spend less on the Nokia 5310 (about £100) or even, spend a bit more, and get the awesome SE w890i (about £250)

    Moto could have saved some money on this one buy asking me if i thought it would sell, i could have said no, saved them shed loads of money, and face.
