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.

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

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.

Philips Xenium 9@9g

Slightly streamlined casing of the 9@9g is made of black plastic and edged with dark gray lengthwise. Such casing looks attractive and pretty imposing, but like all handsets with glossy finish easily picks up fingerprints. So if you want the handset to...
