Motorola Rokr Z6

 

The new Moto Rokr Z6 is the latest addition to the Motorola family, and is said to have "the next generation user interface and Linux operating system." The Z6 is one of the few Motorola phones in the market to feature its new Linux OS. Clearly with...

As a phone the Moto ROKR Z6 is a good one. For the price of Rs. 11,750 you get 1 GB memory along with the phone. The phone is stylish, is easy on the eye and has an easy interface. There isn't much you can complain about the phone, at least I couldn't....

Motorola Rokr Z6m (Alltel)

 

For quite some time we've been eager to review another cell phone from Motorola's Rokr series. After the first handset we examined, the Motorola Rokr E1, failed so miserably we were hoping that Motorola would redeem itself (not that it would take...

The Motorola Rokr Z6m has an attractive, easy-to-use design with a solid feature set. It's a good performer, too

The Motorola Rokr Z6m camera and music player lack high-end offerings. Also, it doesn't come with the necessary equipment for transferring music to the phone

The Motorola Rokr Z6m is a quality music phone for Alltel, but we wished it offered a few more features and came with additional extras in the box.

No, that's not a RIZR Z3. We take a good, long look at Moto's first Linux-Java phone for the US - with Video Tour.

Review: Motorola MOTOROKR Z6

 

A couple of years ago, Motorola promised a new platform of devices based on Linux. That time has come, and the new ROKR Z6 music phone shines thanks to its nifty new Linux powered UI that is both flexible and powerful - and at times, even talkative....

Solid new user interface, good music features, great display, it talks

Only average reception, poor low-light camera performance

i liked the sliding feature of the phone and the fact you can use any audio to set as a ringtone

phone isn't durable at all, had it for less than a year and I can see inside the phone just from normal wear, the screws on the slider straight up popped out, making the innerds visible. The phone also freezes

Slim, small, can fit in my pocket. Love the sliding phone lock feature. Love the sliding feature. Can be used for MP3 player, looks "cool

Motorola Rokr Z6m (Alltel)

 

When I first purchased this phone, within a week I had trouble with the screen "flickering" and splitting (the top half of the screen would be superimposed over the image on the screen). I returned it to the US Cellular store and received a replacement...

Motorola Rokr Z6m (Alltel)

 

all in all I recommend anyone looking at this phone to never buy it, phone freezes a lot when sending messages, also doesn't send messages half the time, even with full reception, or it will send your message 2-4 times randomly.

Terribly made phone.

 

When I got the phone I knew I would have to take care of it since it's the large screen that can be scratched. I bought a special case for it and was extremely careful with it. I don't usually have problems with phones getting dropped or scratched so I...

Reception seems to be adequate. The screen is nice. Camera works fine in good light

Screen cracked at 8 months of gentle use, voiding the warranty. Thumb piece fell off at 6 months. Frame on the "slider" began to randomly split at 3 months. Glue on buttons melts and gets everywhere. Speaker for music is not good

This phone looks great and works great too!

 

This phone has worked great for 15 months now. It's the best cell phone I've had yet. Great sound, good picture & video quality. I love the address book. The calendar and recording functions are nice too. The phone looks great

Rarely, but occasionally the speakerphone comes on in my pocket, even though the phone is in it's case. That has just begun in the last couple of weeks though
