The phone comes with a VGA camera that offers more features than one would expect. The phone has a camera mode and the picture set up allows adjustment of white balance, implementation of different special effects like sepia, inverse, monochrome, and a resolution setting of up to 640 x 480. The phone can also be adjusted to set a composure compensation and allow auto-time capture. Although most of the more expensive mobile handsets have these features, the phones within the W376 range definitely lack these exciting functions. Likewise, the phone allows storage of pictures on the device and use of photos as wallpaper. However, the downside is that the pictures can’t be transferred to other devices through Bluetooth and USB connection.
As mentioned, the W376 is Bluetooth enabled, allowing it to connect to hands-free devices like a Bluetooth headset. But the Bluetooth function cannot be used in connecting to another phone or computer for transferring of files and photos. The phone may be the first Tracfone to allow Bluetooth access, but the limited access is somewhat of a turn-off.
The phone can also play MP3 ringtones but users have to browse Tracfone in order to download them on to the device. There are tons of generic ringtones integrated in this phone, and users have the option of setting the device to vibrate and ring, ring, or vibrate only.
The Motorola W376 is cheap for sending standard SMS, with a fee of 0.3 of an airtime minute for a text message and a minute for MMS. Users are also charged for every minute of downloading an MMS.
The roster of games on this phone is also short, with games like Tetris, Sudoku and Soccer options for those who want to spend their idle time playing.
Other features of this phone include voice mail, caller ID, caller waiting, stop watch, alarm clock, calendar, calculator, recent call lists, messages list, and a phone book that can store up to 500 entries. It also comes with a speaker phone.
