Motorola Z9 on AT&T SlashGear Review


It would be easy to dismiss Motorola's Z9 on first sight, as just another RAZR-inspired basic cellphone.  The Z9 has the usual zero-profile keypad (here with

Motorola Z9


This 3G slider is a bit heavy, but it offers excellent call quality and GPS navigation.

AT&T Navigator easy to use, performs reliably ; Fast Web browsing ; Clear call quality ; IM support

Larger and heavier than RAZR2 V9 ; Navigator slow to gauge current location ; Blurry Cellular Video and still photos ; Choppy audio and video streaming

We really like the Moto Z9’s sturdy design, large screen, instant messaging support, and AT&T Navigator functionality. Media streaming wasn’t very fluid, however, and the phone itself may be too big for some users. Nevertheless, if you're in the market...

Motorola Z9 (AT&T)


For the past two years, Moto has been under enormous pressure from many camps (us included) to come up with something completely new. So when we first held the new Motorola Z9 for AT&T, we were a bit disappointed that it doesn't stray very far from the...

The Motorola Z9 has a sharp design, a generous feature set, and satisfying music and video quality. But most of all, its call quality is outstanding

The Z9's 3G performance was variable. Also, its photo quality wasn't as sharp as it could be

The Z9 may not offer anything new but it's a fine cell phone in all regards. It offers an attractive design, a great feature set, and superb call quality.

Motorola MOTO Z9 (AT&T)


Another top-notch, high-end mobile phone from Motorola, the new Z9 scores high on all performance measures. It's the best feature phone AT&T has to offer. So why am I so bored? It's just that the Z9 seems like a virtual clone of our Editors'...

Excellent voice quality. Built-in GPS navigation and video-sharing features. Good Web browser

Reception isn't quite as strong as with the V9 ; Watch the Motorola MOTO Z9 Video Review

The Z9 is a high-quality feature phone with video sharing, GPS, and a host of other features. There's nothing innovative about this handset, but it works very well.

Motorola MOTO Z9 Review


Just recently launched, AT&T has added the Motorola Z9, to stand alongside the RAZR2 lineup that was launched several months back. With the way things have been going for Motorola, we imagine that they are hoping to add onto the success of the RAZR2...

Motorola Z9


Motorola hasn't been looking too strong in the news lately, with flagging numbers, possible spin-offs of the phone division and a general heap of negative hype because they've failed to come up with something as wildly successful as the original RAZR...

Slim and shiny. Good reception. Good music and streaming video experience. Good GPS performance.

The microSD card slot isn't hot swappable. Battery life could be better.

The Moto Z9 is a hard phone to not like. It's got great looks, a sturdy build with metal casing, it feels good in the hand and has a wealth of useful features. As the first GPS-enabled feature phone on AT&T, the Moto Z9 will be on your short list if...

Motorola Z9 Mobile Phone Review and Prices


This slider phone from Motorola offers an excellent feature set as well as very solid performance. At first glance, the most noticeable thing about the Z9 is the stunning 2-2/5-inch LCD. Capable of supporting up to 262,000 colors, the screen presents...

Review: Motorola Z9


Motorola's Z9 is like a Motorola V9 RAZR2 that has been given the slider treatment. It has the same good looks, solid construction, and overall appeal of the RAZR2, but lets people carry something slightly different.

The Motorola Z9 features Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP support for stereo headsets. Pairing devices is very simple, and I was easily able to pair several different headsets. The handset features an indicator light in the top right corner of the front of the...

Motorola Z9


MOTO's Z9 is a top-notch featurephone that provides access to nearly all of AT&T's data and multimedia services in an attractive form factor. The phone is rather large and pretty hefty, which is either kind of nice or really annoying depending on your...

Great voice quality ; fast 3G data speeds ; good GPS system ; mobiTV compatibility ; sleek, attractive design ; clean menus and UI ; solid build ; easy to hold and use

Rather large for a sliderphone ; some may not like tiny buttons ; heavy

Review: Motorola Z9


The Motorola Z9 is the slider version of the RAZR2 series. This capable phone brings style--and sheer size--to Motorola's slider line-up. It conquers multimedia functions, but is it a good phone?

Product Specifications

Take the best and make it better. The MOTO Z9 shares the rich and beautiful look of the latest and greatest RAZR2, now offered with the luxury of a slider. This mobile is not only breathtaking but its design is built strong with chemically hardened glass, vacuumized metal and stainless steel construction.
