Motorola Slvr L6 (silver, AT&T)

 

We were disappointed that Motorola chose to downgrade the L6's display from 262,000 colors on the L7 to 65,536 colors, or 128x160 pixels. Though it's large enough (1.75 inches diagonally), the difference in resolution on the display is clearly...

The Motorola Slvr L6 has a slim, sexy design, Bluetooth, and quality performance

The Motorola Slvr L6 has a low-resolution display and a poorly designed keypad. It also suffers from blurry picture quality and an average speakerphone. Plus, Cingular has deactivated some important features

If you can get it at a bargain price, the Motorola Slvr L6 is a solid option for users who want a functional phone with sexy looks, but true phone fanatics will be disappointed.

Motorola L6 review: Affordable RAZR bar

 

Everything started with the Razr. The success of the ultra thin clamshell has put Motorola on the top of the high-class phones. Intended for the ordinary user with its reasonable price, the Motorola L6 follows the example. The equipment however won't...

Additional operating elements can be found on the side parts of the phone. There is a camera button on the right side, just above it is the miniUSB connector, the charger slot and the data cable slot. On the opposite side, practically at the same...

The SLVR L6's reception seemed good and calls were generally extremely sharp. But we occasionally got background hiss or buzz on our calls, and we were unsure whether to chalk that up to the phone or to T-Mobile's network. The speakerphone volume was...

Dazzling design. Thin and light. Good voice quality

Poor camera. So-so speakerphone. A bit fragile

The thinnest phone you can buy in the U.S. today makes pretty good calls.

The Motorola Slvr L6 (the candy bar-style version of the company's thin line of cell phones) has the same look and feel as its sibling, the Slvr L7. Only this model lacks a way to expand memory beyond the included 10MBs (that's actually plenty of...

Review: Motorola L6

 

In general, our reviews are purely Mac- and iPod-related, but sometimes we broaden our scope to other things “tech”. In this case, we took a look at Motorola's L6, a phone sometimes referred to as the original SLVR, as it shares much of the design of...

Slick design, small, seems surprisingly durable, plays well with OS X, simple interface, Bluetooth

Cheap screen, weak camera, only 5 voice-dials, certain models might not work with Cingular

Motorola's L6 is rather underrated and almost unknown in the US, but fails to disappoint.

The New Motorola L series are an innovative upgrade of the world famous RAZR. The L series phones are for people who like the thin style of the RAZR, but do not like clamshell / flip phones. There are three L series phones that have been released...

Snapshot: Motorola L6

 

While the Motorola SLVR L7 is a great handset in its own right, it is a little expensive for some. Enter the Motorola L6 - it has a very similar design and specifications to the SLVR, but comes at a much nicer price point.

Motorola L6 Review

 

Building on the success of the highly acclaimed SLVR L7, Motorola recently released the L6, the newest ultra-thin device to the popular SLVR line-up. Virtually identical in size and shape to the L7, the L6 offers a familiar slim profile with a metal...

Throughout the review many comparisons were made between the L6 and its big brother, the L7. Both being released for Cingular, their similar designs are bound to draw assessments. But since both phones are marketed towards different consumers, the L7...

Motorola L6

 

We're glad that Motorola appear to have dropped the dreadful "Motorola SLVRcam V280" name and go with the "L6" instead. It's a much less muddled name for the product and it retains the "SLVR" branding for other premium handsets. And although the...
