Motorola U9 (black, Unlocked)

 

Though Motorola has succeeded in making a series of reliable, practical cell phones this year, the company hasn't been working the style angle that hard. Sure, the Z9 and Rokr E8 are attractive, but even those handsets put function over form. The...

The Motorola U9 offers an attractive design, a decent music player with stereo Bluetooth, and an appealing display

The Motorola U9's controls are flat and slippery and its memory card is in an inconvenient location. Its menus can be sluggish and its photo quality is poor

The Motorola U9 is a mostly reliable music phone with an eye-catching design. We had a few complaints, but it makes up for its deficiencies with good call quality.

Motorola MOTO U9 Review

 

Today, here is the second generation Motorola phone with this design language, the MOTO U9. Strangely, Motorola has dropped the PEBL line-name and has branded the new phone just as MOTO itself. However, the look is similar and the soft forms definitely...

MOTO U9

 

Motorola has released the MOTO U9, which has a great-sounding cell phone, but what else does it offer?

The new MOTO U9 from Motorola marks a change in the company’s 2008 cell phone production direction. Motorola has already been wildly successful with a series of reliable and practical phones, but it hasn't been till now, with the MOTO U9, that the...

The weight of the phone is no muscle maker either. With the super light MOTO U9 phone, only 87.5 grams, no need to sweat over carrying it. Bulgy phones are the thing of the past! Do not force yourself to carry a new or old phone that is the weight of a...

Motorola MOTOROKR U9

 

Marketed by pop star Fergie and aimed at women buyers, Motorola's MOTOROKR U9 is a budget music handset with plenty of style. Despite its fairly low p...

Thin and lightweight design, external display, touch-sensitive music controls, animated screensavers, A2DP Bluetooth

No 3.5mm headphone jack, no microSD card included, sluggish user interface

The MOTO U9 is a nicely designed handset, but given it's marketed as a music phone, the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack is an annoying omission.
