Motorola RIZR Z3


The RIZR marks the Motorola's entry into the world of slider phones, dominated largely by Samsung at the moment. Sliders are nothing new, so what does the RIZR have, to make up for the long absence from this form factor?

The RIZR Z3 has been priced well at Rs. 13,500. It offers the same features as the KRZR K1, but it does it for around Rs. 2,500 less, and it also offers a newer form factor. However, The RIZR is late. Samsung has been making sliders for years and...

Motorola Rizr Z6tv ( Verizon Wireless)


When Motorola introduced its first slider phone with the Rizr Z3 , the company successfully took its groundbreaking Razr design to the next level. Now the company is offering the Rizr Z6tv, which is essentially the Rizr Z3 with Verizon Wireless' V Cast...

The Motorola Rizr Z6tv has a slick slider design, good call quality, and includes Verizon's V Cast Mobile TV service.

The Motorola Rizr Z6tv lacks some of the features found in the Rizr Z3, and the camera produced disappointing pictures.

The Motorola Rizr Z6tv is an attractive cell phone that delivers good performance and includes live streaming TV.

Motorola MOTORIZR Z3


Motorola's phones have a well-deserved reputation for sharp looks that are usually matched by sharp performance. But Motorola's latest sleek slider, the MOTORIZR Z3, suffers from a couple of counterintuitive user interface problems that mar its...

Thin; compact slider design; 2MP camera w/light; stereo Bluetooth

Counterintuitive music and camera applications; microSD slot behind battery cover; short talk time

this phone is still a solid device with an above average camera.

Motorola Rizr Z3


If you're tired of carrying around a music player, a digital camera, and a cell phone, the Motorola Rizr Z3 can help you consolidate. This midnight-blue cell phone is the slider-style cousin of Motorola's popular Razr. It's available from T-Mobile for...

Screen is easy to see, even outdoors Includes great multimedia functions

Keypad is hard to press Phone is a bit hard to quickly master

Many phones are now three-in-one devices, but the well-thought-out design and easy handling of the Rizr Z3 as a phone, camera, and music player make it a multimedia device I'd be happy to put in my pocket

This slider version of the KRZR looks good but doesn't have much new under the hood.

Sleek design with full-sized keyboard • Sharp 2-MP camera • Bundled Roxio multimedia software • Fast Web surfing • Excellent battery life

Some calls didn't connect • Doesn't record video

Motorola RIZR Z3 review: Sliding Moto


Yes, it's true, Motorola have made slider phone with the RAZR looks. Its name is RIZR. The letter-game name still holds true. This is the first Motorola slider for the European and American markets. The Asians are a different story. Considering its big...

Motorola Rizr Z3 (black, Unlocked)


Ever since it introduced its popular Razr phone, Motorola has done everything it can to capitalize on two trends: thin phones, and a vowel-dropping naming convention. After the Razr and the bizarrely named Krzr, Motorola now gives us the Rizr Z3 (it's...

The Motorola Rizr Z3 has a striking design with a great display and navigation controls. It also offers decent call quality and a pleasing feature set

The Motorola Rizr Z3 has shaky speakerphone quality, and the camera didn't take the best pictures. Also, the microSD card slot is in an inconvenient location

Motorola does a slim slider phone well with the attractive and well-performing GSM Rizr Z3.

Motorola's MOTORIZR Z3


What was once known as the Capri -- the US Motorola team's first 4LTR slider effort , not to be confused with the Korean team's Z -- can now be called the MOTORIZR, and the skinny is, of course, not entirely surprising. The 0.6-inch thick quad-band...

Motorola RIZR Z3


You've met the type. Good looking, appealing, friendly, helpful, and perhaps just a little slow. No, I'm not talking about the guy next door. I'm referring to Motorola's RIZR Z3. This solid cell phone offers good voice quality and a powerful...

Well-built. Good voice quality. Sharp 2-megapixel camera

Sluggish interface and especially WAP browser

Motorola's RIZR Z3 is a solid, reliable midrange phone for T-Mobile with good looks and pretty nice features, as long as you don't expect too much of it.
