Just got mine today....looks great and feels great but menu system is annoying and camera is fairly poor. I wish video clips were longer, but i can put up with all that since i have a camera, mp3 player etc too.
What I want to know is....how do you voice dial numbers in phonebook?
and how do you make the outside screen display te clock not digital numbers?
A beautiful looking phone, great tactile sensation, flip up is a bit of a nuisance (top half is too heavy), but otherwise physically gorgeous.
Unfortunately as usual motorola manages to produce stupid menu menu's despite everyone else in the industry managing to cover everything much more simply.
Finally, and worst of all, the icons!!! They produce a beautiful phone, and then got some 10yo to design the icons - they're boxy, crude and childish - how about you spend a bit more on the graphics designers.
Bad menu's and bad icons is enough to make me regret the purchase.
It is more apporiate if your comment apply to the Nokia 8800.
PS. For your information, I presently still own:-
- Motorola U6, V3, V3i.
- A Vertu Ascent.
- A Nokia 8800.
- Sony Ericsson K750i & K600.
- 2 J-phones for use in Japan when travel
there for business & holidays.
An overpriced joke, lacking the most basic features, like any other motorola really
how the keypads working???its looking wierd!
is that just touch the surface??is that the keypad has sensor??
Great looking phone with excellent feel & the size is just perfect. Very strong reception.
Keypad not bright enough & not as user friendly as the V3 keypad. Main screen can be bigger by utilizing the extra space available. Video clip too short time & camera can use higher MP ones.
A great design phone none the less. Well done Moto.
gromit, there is no EDGE on U6, but i mean altho it looks gr8, but stil not worth buying, as V3x n V3i are alot better[ jus own comment no offense ]
I love this phone. The texture, the pleasure of the slide+open function and the functions are just awesome. I'm still getting used to the overall feel of the phone, texting with the pad is a little weird, but overall its a top notch phone. Whats more I got it free!
Can anyone confirm if this phone has Edge. In the manual it states there is Edge and even shows what the icon on the screen looks like. In the specs on various websites such as this one it states no Edge
Tgis phone is beautiful. I tmay not have the best features but god, it's a good looking phone.
I got this phone last week. I love the shape design, the feel of the material, and the colour of the external display. However, I find that when i'm slightly aggresive shutting the flip the phone will restart! I can also tap quite hard just below the zero key and it will restart, not very good!
I'm in the middle of sending it back, hopefully they all weren't made like this because I love the phone. Yeah, ok, the features aren't the best, but i've come full circle since my first mobile, the most I want is to be able to call, text someone and have bluetooth, that's all I use a phone for! So some good design goes along way with me.
Hope this helps
Azza, to change from digital to analog on the clock go into menu, settings, intial settings, time and date; turn off auto-update; adjust the settings as you need; turn auto-update back on.... its a stupid place to put it, but once you learn the trick its not bad.
i just got my PEBL U6 today it's great...
www.puremobile.com has a very good price $528.00 and you get the HS850 headset and 1 more battery... great buy
I've been a Sony Ericsson user and was apprehensive about buying this phone. This is one of those rare phones that has a tactile feel that makes u want to caress it. The weight of the phone itself gives an impression that its solidly built.
A few issues that I have with it is the backward user interface. The icons look so 1980s, like Windows 85. The least they could do was to give us better looking ones like the ones found in E680i. My main peev is with the phonebook. I can't believe they are still using individual names for each number instead of grouping it into a user's set of numbers.
And what is that scroll wheel doing on the interface? Arrrgghhh! I feel cheated of screen real estate. They think we're that stupid to need it to guide us through navigation?
Since the camera is on top of the screen, it wasn't possible to have a bigger screen. But if you look at the edge of the screen, the thick lining around it could have been used as extra space. It would easily provide another 15-20% screen area.
Why am I not sending it back? In the end, the cool design won me over. Motorola has finally been able to give us a design that closely resembles a Star Trek communicator. Now, if they would only add in a feature to make a sound when the phone is flipped, I would be able to use the communicator sound with it.
oh my goodness! his phone rock! honestly its a very irresistable phone!
the design, material and feature. GO MOTOROLA!
There is a special XMAS edition out I saw on http://www.ImportGSM.com that comes with 2 batteries, 2 chargers, HS-850 headset, case and other stuff! The box looks AMAZING though. They have pictures they posted on Howard Forums and also if you click screenshot on this page:
Rite, im thinking of buying this fone, i would appreciate a constructive review by anyone who genuinly has this fone, I would appreciate if you could tell me the pros and cons of this fone
