Sturdy, stylish, well-priced camera phone

I've only had my W385 for a little while but so far I'm really impressed with its features and high quality look & feel.
It feels solid in the palm of your hand, like it was made to last, yet it doesn't feel clunky at all. It's not as slick-looking as a KRZR, but if you're not into playing "look at me" while talking on your cell phone in your car or at a club then this probably isn't a concern.
The W385 is a very attractive phone with clean styling, and the price makes it even better. I got mine for $99 on a Pay & Talk plan which includes $50 calling credit, so essentially the phone cost $49. Not bad for a good quality camera phone on Pay & Talk.
The sound quality and calling features are excellent, and the keypad and menus are easy to use. The only negative things I've noticed so far are that the display is on the small side (it's not tiny but it might be a concern if you're visually impaired), and the camera is pretty basic with no extra features.
For the price the W385 is an excellent phone. I can't attest to its long-term durability at this point, but the last Motorola I owned went through hell & back and never quit once. Based on that, plus the quality feel of the W385, I feel very comfortable recommending it!
