E71? You must have really small hands! The E71 has a lot to offer... True. But the Q9H at least has HTML e-mail, a decent sized and very usable keyboard.
This is not a music phone, and its camera is there, cause the folks at Motorola probably felt pressured to have it in.
And, no I don't really miss the WiFi. Tried WiFi on an E90 and it was too much of a hassle. Likewise on the Samsung i600, which needed a reboot every 7 hours.
As an all rounder this beats any E71, i600 and yes the E90.
If you run it with activesync on EDGE, this thing can give you up to 36 hours on the standard battery, but an average of like 24 hours.
Were can you buy those Micro SD wifi cards?
I've search everywhere but I couldn't find them in webshops..
I like the design of the phone, its keyboard and screen, however after having it for about 2 weeks I realize the amount of system memory is not sufficient, and I will probably send the phone back for a BB. Its ridiculous to add all the bells and whistles Motorola has put on this phone without adding sufficient memory to run them!
anonymous, 20 Oct 2008I just wanna ask if 18000 pesos which is 400 dollars if converted is worth the cost of this ph... moreget the e71. One of my smart/pda phones is the moto q9h, and it sucks. again buy the e71 because it has more to offer than the moto q.
Matt, nice info on the micro SD WiFi card! still, what about the necesarry memory for all our files, downloads, music etc. Still cant give this phone the deserved recognition as it does not perform well.
I just bought this phone offline yesterday from At&t. Is it black or silver? What's the deal? At&t advertised it as silver in the picture but it said black in the side bar, I'm going to be really mad if it comes in black, it seems that they have two different kinds of Q's: the Q9h and the Q but they don't know the difference. I called them up and they said it came in one color: silver but it also came in black in the store.
AT&T as well as Motorola states it can handle MicroSD up to 32GB (MicroSD SDHC 8GB+ motorola site )2 batteries 1130 mAh standard battery and 1800 mAh extended battery is included
If you get your Motorola Global from AT&T you get 2 batteries, 3.7 Volt 1130 mAh (milliAmp hour) 4.2 Wh (Watt hour) standard BT60 and BT90 3.7 Volt 1800 mAh 6.7 Wh extended life battery. The talk time on this unit is much better than the Samsung Blackjack II, twice as long. The battery drain on 3G is not as bad as it was on the Blackjack. The processor is 100+MHz faster but has less system memory which isnt bad not noticeable. Full Opera moble web browser makes up for lack of system memory. If this had the same memory as the Blackjack II this would be the best smartphone.
Bluetooth 2.0 profile is nice and added feature is playing your media through a standard bluetooth and not stereo headset thanks to windows mobile 6.1 standard.
But it has bugs vtap crashes when system resources are low. I wish there was a way to use the storage space on the phone to up the memory. I would throw another 64 megs to the system memory. And Motorola states that this phone can handle MicroSD up to 32GB which makes this better than a iPhone short a touchscreen.
Design 9 Features 9 Performance 9. This is great phone it would be a 10 if it had more system memory.
there is too wifi you can go buy a wifi card on the internet for it its called the SDW-822 from spectec
it plugs directly into your card slot
Oh and for all of you inquiring about video conferencing . . .its not supported by this phone, no WiFi either. . . no GPS . . . and I could never get it to work as a modem.
Nokia E71 on the other hand, well read the reviews, I absolutely fell in love with this phone!
I’m EXTREMELY disappointed in this phone, came from the previous Moto Q GSM and was quite content but wanted to take advantage of the 3G functionalities available by my local providers . . . This phone is terrible it keeps switching bands 3G, GSM, 3G etc on each switch the call is dropped and when it switches back to 3G it resets itself!! Losing my personal configuration!!! The only good thing is the speakers great sound but I got a stereo for that.
Went for the Nokia E71 . . . bye bye Motorola NEVER AGAIN
And yes we tried to reprogram the phone to get the glitch out but no go, tried keeping it on GSM band / mode only to discover that the GSM reception is lousy. . .
i have one problem with q9h.
when i charge,that battery doesnt last even 3 hours and i dont do nothing with phone.
i charge all night and nothing,the same problem
what to do?
Why does the phone switch off and on it's own?Is that a sign that it has a virus? What can I do to silve the problem.
i also have this phone but tired of it due the lack of wifi. so i got the n95 which is awesome.
now, the moto q11 lacks 3g, although it has a wifi.
what gives motorola? both wifi and 3g should be included for future moto q
so people till motorola include both wifi and 3g to the moto q, i recommend the nokia e71.
Why during the whole charging time the key board is lighted ? Is this a defect ?
i just recently got the q9h and am wondering about the GPS option does it work an where is it in the phone?
3.Flawless compatability with my network provider
The lack of WiFi really hurts.Oh,and is there a way to clear your entire sms inbox at one shot?I cant seem to find that option in the menu.Have to manually delete messages one by one.Real pain in the butt.
Anonymous, 23 Jul 2008I wish companies would stop using the term global when it does not work in Japan. No WCDMA/HSD... moreWhen you say Q9 is not a "world" phone, so which one really does?
I've the Asian version which supports GSM850/900/1800/1900 and WCDMA2100, the last band makes this phone works in Japan.
Call me naive, I'm aware of any GSM phone which supports "both" 3G networks being used in US (HSDPA 850) and everywhere else (WCDMA2100).
Better yet, is there any phone you know of that works in all 3G networks around the world...including the one in (South) Korea?
