I love my motorola Z9 phone! It's not only cute and trendy but it's easy to through the apps, the screen is big, nice light weight to it, the speaker is very loud which is good for when I put it down to do something else while continuing to have a conversation or to just listen to music that I downloaded onto phone and it also have a voice recorder which people might not think is special but there have been so many times I have recorded my friends and I hanging out or singing together (badly) but it's another way to help create/reminisce good memories. But I have to say my most favorite feature on this phone is the camera! I have had a few camera phones and comparing them all makes Z9 look like a digital camera due to the quality.

You can change the resolution from low to high and the lowest is 320x640. And the camera can also record videos that come in the size of 320x640 as the biggest size. Oh and I almost forgot the camera has a flash which, advance in warning do not try to aim at yourself because it is ***bright***!!! Anyways back to the subject, when you're trying to record a video or take a picture but it's just too dark, this phone's flash actually brightens up the video/picture that you are taking and actually shows everything because one of the last phones I had did not make one bit of a difference other thank make a huge blurry circle in the middle you couldn't even tell there were people there! But this one does and the flash also comes in handy when you're trying to find something like when you're outside your house at night going through your cluttered purse trying to find your keys or just clearing a path when you're walking at night...and yes I do use this for those things and trust me it has come in handy MANY TIMES!

The downside is the keypads, they're very small and nice to look at but such a pain to use! Especially if you're a person who constantly write text messages, like myself which is why/how I got used to it but my thumbs would literally start to hurt and cramp up in the beginning and even after I got used to it. But other than that I really do love this phone and sometimes my friends love it more than me especially in public when they pretend it's theirs for the day! :)

The exterior of this phone isn't so attractive, perhaps it  will appeal more to males or tom boys than most girls, however, the layout menu inside is quite nice. Everything is clear and easy to find, and the colours and themes are better than other cell phones I have tried (Samsung)

The problem is though, if you text too much with this phone, the buttons will start to wear off. Like really wear off. I've had this phone for ten months now and my buttons look like I purposely tried to scratch them off. Although the back of the phone doesn't scratch easily, the front of the phone and the screen are actually quite delicate. I have dropped it once on not even a concrete floor and my screen is cracked. Needless to say, my Motorola isn't exactly in the greatest condition.

A very nice plus for this phone for some may be that it has the ability to input and read Chinese characters. Most phones, you will have to pay extra for this feature, but I was lucky that this phone had it already installed. I would say that this would be the most special feature of this phone.

The charger that comes with this phone is supersenstive, so you cannot bump the phone while it's charging or it'll disconnect. But it also comes with a handset type charger that helps prevent this and is probably more useful if you don't use the phone while it's charging. The battery life on this phone is also quite good, the downside is that it doesn't tell you exactly how many percent battery you have left.

The earphones didn't come with my phone, but the sound and quality of the ones I bought for this phone was excellent. 

In conclusion, I think that Motorola is a phone best for someone who doesn't do too much texting and is just looking for an average type cell phone.

Motorola Z series phones are the ultimate phone.

By 

from Judsonia, AR

Comments about Motorola Cell Phone:

**Motorola Z9 **is the best phone i have ever owned, it is a nice chocolate color and is a slider.  The mp3 player on it is wonderful for downloading music and the sound quality is excellent concidering it is coming from a cell phone.  The speaker is great for when you have your hands full and still need to talk on the phone, just turn on the speaker phone option and go.  Now i'm a big txting machine I love to keep in touch with my three daughters all day long and with the t-9 option on I can txt almost as fast as they can.  I have been thru 2 Z9's the first one my husband dropped in the yard and the dogs got ahold of it pretty bad, still worked until I ordered myself a new one.  Dropped the second one in a glass of water it worked well for a few days.  Now i'm looking for a new phone and I am seriously leaning on going ahead and buying another Z9.  I know it sounds crazy but that is how much I miss the Motorola Z9.

Motorola Z9 cell phone-great phone-not so good battery.

By 

from Smyrna, GA

Comments about Motorola Cell Phone:

The Motorola Z9 cell phone is a pretty good product.  It's deep brown color looks very nice and stylish.  It's a very sturdy phone, although a little heavy.  It is a slide phone, has a large display with raised dots to actually feel when you select things.  It has a round directional pad that allows you to navigate on the front.  My directional pad cracked in half about 9 months after I got the phone and a few months later has formed another crack in it.  When you slide the front of the phone up it has the traditional number keypad for calling and texting. The keypad is flat, the keys are not seperated, but each key has a raised spot on it that allows you to feel the key as you push it.  The camera is good quality.  It has clear sound and the speaker phone works really well.  The Z9 has bluetooth, and mp3 player, the ability to download music to play and for ringtones, GPS capabilities, email, texting, and internet.  The only complaint I have with this phone is the quality of the directional wheel and the battery life.  I bought a new battery a month ago and it does not stay charged longer than a day.  All in all I am very happy with this phone and would buy it again.

Motorola moto z9 is a nice phone with pretty accesories

By 

from High Springs, FL

Comments about Motorola Cell Phone:

This cell phone is a nice change from the oversized monster of the past, It's range and capabilites are wide spread and easy to understand. The keyboard locks when closed which is a nice addition so that my purse does not call my friends anymore. The screen is easy to read and the function are easy to understand.

The Motorola Z9 is a good phone but did not last long.

By 

from Morgan City, LA

Comments about Motorola Cell Phone:

The Motorola Z9 is a good phone that had great features.  The phone was easy to use and was not loaded down with so many features that it became complicated.  The slide was nice but be careful if you take it out to a sand area like a beach.  The sand tended to get in the slide and cause it to have a rough feeling when you opened or closed the slide feature.  Being able to open the phone to speak or leave it closed was a nice feature also. The phone was bluetooth ready and owning a vehicle that had Sync features the Motorola Z9 was great to use in the vehicle.  It provided hands free operation of the phone thru the cars speakers.  The best feature was the ability of the vehicle to read the text messages out loud when they were received.  Syncronizing of the phone to the Sync feature was very easy.  The only issue we had was my wife and I each had one and the phone just did not seem to last very long.  Less than 2 years use we actually got out of our phones.  Overall it was a good phone.

Great Cell Phone

By 

from Jeremiah, KY

Comments about Motorola Cell Phone:

Love this phone. I looked at several phones before selecting this one. A slider with slim features got my attention, then the color of the phone sold me. Very easy to use, not like some of the new techie phones which are way to difficult to use, when you are just wanting to make a simple call.

It's a good phone.

By 

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Motorola Cell Phone:

This is beautiful slider phone. The features are not something you would want in a new phone according to today's standards because with most of the new plans, you're able to get phones with better features. I had this phone when it first came out in 2008. This phone should be considered when you need a replacement phone. It looks good, it's a slider, and it is easy to navigate through the phone. This phone takes good pictures with a 2 mega pixel camera. It can record short video clips. It's got a memory card slot. I had a one gigabyte memory card in it which allowed me to download decent amount of songs onit at one time. It's got bluetooth built in. I find Motorola phones to be the easiest phones to navigate. This phone has GPS built in GPS but requires a separate data plan if you want to use it. All in all this phone looks excellent and it's slim. It is agreat replacement phone for today's standards.

"Beware"

By 

from Jacksonville, AR

Comments about Motorola Cell Phone:

The new Motorola Z9 at first I was very excited when I received the phone.  It's a very good looking phone.  Very classy.  But my first Z9's screen went out with in a month, so I sent for a replacement.  Now a couple months later, the replacement's screen has gone out.  So at this point I would definitely not recommend this phone.
