Philips Xenium 9@9k


The Philips Xenium 9@9k is a rather simple and niche product for consumers who value the importance of long talk duration and eschew the advanced features found on modern mobiles.

Expert review by:

Philips Xenium 9@9w


It may not be the most feature rich mobile around, but its simplicity, clean aesthetics and amount of talk time that it offers makes a strong point for the Philips Xenium 9@9w

Philips Xenium 9@9s


The Xenium 9@9s does not only shine when it comes to battery life, it also strikes an elegant pose with its clean and sharp aesthetics.

Expert review by:

Philips Xenium 9@9h


The Philips Xenium 9@9h strikes the perfect balance between distinct elegance and pure power. With its incredibly long battery life, the 9@9h promises the true freedom of keeping you always connected.

Thing is, the theme on the main screen obscures the battery meter because of a blue on blue colour scheme which makes it a little hard to see until you move into one of the submenus.

Philips Xenium 9@9z


The Philips Xenium 9@9z is a standard candybar phone with FM-Radio, MP3 Player, miniUSB, WAP, MMS and also is a dual-band GSM.

Aside from its slightly sluggish performance, the device in general is quite recommendable to new users or those who want simplicity with a cheaper price.

Will Philips' comeback phone cut it?


Philips is back again, this time relaunching its Xenium line with the 9@9c. See how it fares in our review.

Triband; lightweight clamshell; ultra-long battery life

No Bluetooth; no camera, uninspiring design

It's a little more than your basic phone, but has a fantastic battery life. Perfect for the no-nonsense executive.
