In the Tools menu you will find Calculator, Calendar, Alarm Clock, Dialing Services (Fixed Dial, Service Dial), Activation List, Voice message and World Clock applications. The Calculator is a basic one. The Calendar has four views: month, week, day and organized events view. You can create a new event and set various option: subject, location, event type and repeat options (daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, none).
The Alarm Clock application enables you to create alarms with names and reminders. Multiple alarms are available too. Voice recording is limited by the free memory only. The World Clock application displays the time in several different time zones.
Another application we did not mention earlier is the Media Finder which is something like a gallery. It handles your media files like music, videos and pictures. When browsing through the pictures, the phone shows you lower quality thumbnails in order to make navigation faster. If you stop on a picture, it clarifies and becomes the full quality image. The Media Finder is a substitute for the file manager and we have to admit that it works great. We would like to see it more often in future Motorola handsets.
The only two games in the phone are Block Breaker Deluxe and Platinum Sudoku. The first one is rather amusing; the goal is to break the entire block on the screen with the ball without letting it fall. There is no need to tell you what the Sudoku is.
|If you want a stylish clamshell with 3G, a good camera and various features - Motorola RAZR maxx V6 is your best choice. You can also consider the Samsung Z560, those two are really similar. In our team's opinion, the Motorola is slightly better in almost all aspects and it surely deserves the praises.|
Other applications in the phone include BACKUP, eBay Pocket Auctions, HELPMEMOTO, Motorola SETUP and Motorola TEXT. The first two need no introduction. HELPMEMOTO is a tutorial of the phone. Motorola SETUP is for setting MMS and Internet options easily. Motorola TEXT is for backing up text messages.

In our team's opinion, the Motorola is slightly better in almost all aspects and it surely deserves the praises. At first we were skeptic as some of the recent Motorola phones we reviewed were disappointing and we didn't expected much from RAZR maxx V6, but it turned out great and we can surely advise anyone who wants a HSDPA clamshell to go straight ahead and get one of those beauties.
