Motorola SLVR L7c

 

The Motorola SLVR has always been more about looks than performance; it's a good-enough phone with great aesthetics.

Great look and feel. Pretty good voice quality.

Odd microphone placement. Annoying memory-card slot. Awful camera.

Motorola Slvr L7

 

There's a lot to like about Motorola's Slvr L7, the company's latest cell-phone/iPod hybrid. It's pretty, sleek, and fairly easy to use for making and receiving calls; and its integration of iPod features is a great extra. Unfortunately, it doesn't...

Slim cell phone feels sturdy to hold Integrates iPod features

Syncing music is a laborious process Adjusting the volume is difficult

Aside from those drawbacks, it is nice to be able to play music and make phone calls with the Slvr L7. And as a phone, the Slvr L7 is easy to use and easy to carry. Still, if I wanted an iPod I'd buy one; and if I wanted a phone, I would choose a...

Motorola's latest thin phone combines the RAZR's good looks with iTunes, but sports last year's specs.

Thinnest phone that you can buy iTunes built in • 512MB memory card included • Loud, crisp speaker

Slow music transfers over USB 1.1 100-song limit • Mediocre stereo earphones • No EDGE or UMTS support

Motorola SLVR L7 review: Slim style

 

Here comes the ideal mobile solution for all those who are not in love with clamshells, but do like Motorola Razr's slim design. Motorola has decided to continue the path marked by its popular Razr by launching a new line of slim phones with classic...

It all started with Motorola V3 Razr. Till the moment this model was launched no one would ever even dare think of such a slim mobile phone. The Razr model was a huge success and managed to get on top of the slim handsets. At present, all major...

There's been a lot of hub-bub about Apple creating an Apple branded iTunes phone. But Jobs and company have held off, probably because Motorola is swimming at that cell phone end of the iPod pool, first with the poorly received ROKR E1 and now with the...

iTunes-compatible cell phone that's even better looking than the RAZR

Low iPod Shuffle-like capacity; poor earbuds; exposed and vulnerable surface and screen

The SLVR's iTunes interface pretty much parallels the iPod's; but the SLVR is certainly no iPod.

Motorola Slvr L7 (black, AT&T)

 

The Motorola Slvr L7's 262,000-color, 176x122-pixel display measures 1.8 inches diagonally, making it large enough for the phone's size. It's great for scrolling through the menus, viewing photos, and playing games, yet it does disappear in direct...

The Motorola Slvr L7 has an attractive overall design. It also comes with an integrated iTunes player, Bluetooth, a sharp display, a TransFlash card slot, and a speakerphone, as well as solid call and music-audio quality

The Motorola Slvr L7's iTunes player is sluggish, and it's burdened with too many usage restrictions. The phone is further hampered by a low-resolution VGA camera, a lack of support for EDGE, tricky controls, no FM radio or stereo speakers, and little...

Motorola's Slvr L7 puts a prettier face on the iTunes phone, but its low-resolution camera, its sluggish music-player performance, and the limitations on the iTunes usability are big distractions.

Motorola SLVR L7c (Sprint)

 

The Motorola SLVR L7c for Sprint is as attractive as ever, with good sound quality and an excellent price. Though its design is a year old, voice-oriented fashionistas who subscribe to Sprint may still be impressed.

Great look and feel. Pretty good voice quality

Odd microphone placement. Annoying memory-card slot. Awful camera

The Motorola SLVR has always been more about looks than performance; it's a good-enough phone with great aesthetics.

Motorola SLVR L7

 

Along with its RAZR cousins, the quad-band SLVR L7 gets excellent reception, though sound quality isn't quite as good. We found that voices, both sent and received, are sharp, and the earpiece volume is loud enough, if not very loud. But the...

So pretty. iTunes is easy to use

Quiet speakerphone. Poor camera. Slow data transfers. Strange headphone connector

Looks and feels great, but this is the vanguard of design, not of technology.

Motorola SLVR L7

 

Motorola's candy bar-style thin cell phone, the Slvr, comes in a few flavors (L7, L6 and L2). It has many features found on the flip phone-style Razr including that trademark keypad and Motorola's easy-to-use interface. Though there's more to the Slvr...

Motorola L7 SLVR Review

 

The SLVR L7 is a good start of the SLVR series, but even the fact that it is a top model, it has some unpleasant drawbacks. The main problem is the keypad, which is cheaper made and besides the fact that it is light up in one color it is not as...

Size ; Stylish design ; Music player with extendable memory through microSD memory card ; Good battery life

Worse under light and smaller buttons (in comparison to the RAZR), using which leads to some mistakes ; Easy to finger print the surface ; Uncomfortable SIM card holder ; Lack of service lights
