i have this phone and take this phone for using gprs etc and also i like hearing music , but sound clarity for this e6 is too bad ..and also no battery backup.. for hearing music and use ur phone frndly use nokia n series and all nokia or use sony eric.. but dont use this phone u waste ur money on using this
Well at last I got this mobile. At first I was looking for the mobile interface in it...but then I found that it's not like that it's a computer. You can do anything with it.Some feature that caught my eyes are:
1. Ability to use cut, copy paste anywhere.
2. User friendly..(first 1 or 2 days you hhave to understand the formation of the OS)
3. Works very good with multiple application. Although it is applicable for EZX application only..but supported java appliacations are great.
4. Sound quality on the phone is not good also..not with the bundled earphone..but if you can I suggest spend some more for a good quality earphone. That'll change the sound a lot.
And at last camera is not that good..it needs a steady hand and lots of light for pix. That's it.
yes it does have handwriting recognition and the sound quality is worse than the e398. i have this phone currently and its terrible with music, its not loud, the bass is horrible, and the sound is just bad..if you want good music, go with the sony ericsson walkmans..because i am still using my old sony ericsson for music while using this phone..another problem i have found is, this phone spazzes out a lot, sometimes the backlight won't go off, its always so sloww, etc etc..its great for the internet though..i downloaded opera mini for my phone so the internet is a lot faster...overall i would only recommend this phone for the internet and the touch screenn..or else just spend an extra 200 more dollars to get an iphone.
>messaging may take time initially, but once you get used to the soft keys, your typing speed will increase. it also has character recognition(or handwriting recognition).it recognises characters when you write on it.
>i liked the options in notes, contacts and other apps.
>games. yup, you can have nice timepass.
>battery backup is decent.
>forgot to tell. i found the loudspeaker a bit better than w810i.
>that internal memory of 8Mb might be inadequate(can experience a lag)when playing with multiple apps. But, came to know of an application that puts aside some of the memory stick space for RAM, which might solve the problem. Heven't tried yet.
All in all This is an allrounder. Good phone to buy if you want looks+music+business apps.
If you are a student, and want to buy something different, then you can show off this piece.No doubt if you have a Rokr and a SE in front, your eyes will be locked on to Rokr, though your mind might be with SE. You know the specifications, so go with your preferences. CHOICE IS YOURS.
Contd.. now what i felt about the performance?
>display: it's awesome-this is what the sales guy used, to change my mind. the touchscreen interface will catch your eye. even more that guy played a video song on it's 2.4 inch display, and i couldn't take my eyes off.
>camera: the picture quality is just acceptable and nothing more(taken into account the quality of SE K750i). video is below par, but i heared the webcam feature is good-haven't tried myself yet.
>sound/music: good. comparable to SE w810i,though the walkman phones have a slightly better score.
>it's interface is user friendly. does not take much time to get used to it.
>FM Radio: the auto tuner sometimes doesn't catch a station frequency if the signal is weak. overall-it's ok.
Contd... Let me tell you more. I bought the premium edition.Contents are: mobile, 2gb memory card, wireless bluetooth headset, datacable, earphones, 2 CDs, charger. The standard edition comes with 1gb card and without the wireless headset.
Price: Premium-i bought for Rs.14k in Bangalore. Standard pack is around 11k.
Hi. I bought this mobile 2 days back.i thought of buying SE w610i initially. But, the guy at the shop changed my mind, and i have Rokr E6 in my hands now. i don't regret the decision. It's sound quality is good. Camera is average, but that's ok, after all you will carry a digicam if you want to take quality pics. You need to remember one thing- Rokr E6 is a PDA afterall, with decent music capabilities. It's a different feeling to play around with touchscreen-though to some it may be a bit irritating, having used the traditional keys to navigate.
To all rokr e6 users! Is there any software available for Editing Office documents in this fone. Pls reply soon becoze i'm planning to purchase this fone next week.
hey can ne 1 temme the box contents of this phone .... and is there ne premiuim addtion of this phone also availabla.... ?plzz reply soon thnx in advance,....?
I have one question, ROKRE6 sound quality compared to Alcatel 853 and Motorola E398.
I purchased this phone 1 day ago it really really rocks !!!!!! better than sony ,nokia n serise .just uy it. Rockr's video & audio quality is superb
GUys I got a question. I am planning to sell my ROKR E6...how do I reset my phone to factory default?? I updated my firmware and stuff. THanks!!!
People from motorolafans are siging a petition for the EZX kernel, this would make a good phone way better with native apps.
i am still very confused about buyin e6 or not..i mean is it all the good to buy it..n r they givin leather covr along???
I used Rockr E6 as webcam in skype. Camera quality is superb than ordinary webcams. wanna see me in skype use v3, my id is kailassenan. WHETHER N95 CAN??????????????????????????????????????????????????
I REALLY TELLING THAT THERE IS NO BAD REMARKS ABOUT ROCKR E6. ITS REALLY A COOL & BEST MOBILE.
Battery backup is amazing. You will get 3+ days with normal usage. Very thankful to all Motorola manufacturing team. Such a good mobile. Price slashed to 11,000 Rs in India. Sony Erricson w810i & Nokia N95 don't have more features than ROCK E6 Guaranteeeeeee.....

Am here again to tell u few more thing about Rockr E6....
Rockr's video & audio quality is superb. I'm concerned more about video. You can convert any of your video files(mpeg,mpg,wav...) to real media(.rm) by using Moto EzX Video Producer utiliy(CD). It converts to a compressed rm to a video of 320x240,12fps,256Kbps & audio of 44Kbps. Watching this converted rm video in Rockr is amazing & superb. It has a good battery backup when u use multimedia. Dragging the video or mp3 forward or backward is more GUI friendly using stylus..more friendly that using with window media player.I have tried with a video rm file for 1hr(110mb) size after convertion. Its amazing to come to notice that there is no lag in its both video & audio till 1hr & quality of both r thrilling! You can play mp3 songs for 14 hrs non-stop and video for 10 hrs in its 1000mah battery! No issue in battery backup, you can trust Rockr.(N series fails in these)
I did't feel any problem in scrolling the mp3 files using stylus, its smooth and selecting a music from the playlist.
One good feature is that u can turn off/on ur network from your Rockr itself. That means if u r roaming or does't want to pick any calls...u can use this unique feature, n can constanly watch movies and songs without any phone calls(u can save battery discharge too due to network). Rockr replaces iPod!!!!!!
Rockr's Photo Editor in its menu have a lot of options like adobe photoshop have(more than paint in windows). U can edit, add comments from the photo u took by its camera or external image, u can write in a blank new image using the stylus and can make ur own banners with colour setting, brush, pen....a lot more...
Another unique feature for good sleepers. U can set two alarms at a time and you can set snooze from 1-5-10-15min. So if miss a morning alarm & snooze at 5:00AM, there u can set another alarm at 6:00Am with snooze. This feature is not there in any of the Nokia mobiles.
Call Record can log upto 50 Answered Calls, 50 Missed Calls, 50 Dialled Calls with Start time, Date & Call Duration.
In calender you can set events and Tasks independely. Its a good business mobile.
Message composing,notebook editing,adding contact,photo editing are too easy with writing by using stylus.
Mail can sent via bluetooth or using its own bulit in modem. Opera browser is good in handling html files.
Phone book, Inbox and Outbox capacity are unlimited. U can switch the storing location to memory card/phone menory/simcard memory.
Memory card, Sim Card, Battery have seperate slots. Sim card can be taken without removing of the battery(sim lock also thr). Rockr have an additional internal battery(cell) to maintain the time & date, when its main battery is removed.
Speed dialing using single number dailing is possible by using its Turbo dialing feature, u can assign ur 10 independent family friend nos. Speed key 1 can be assigned to any other no than a fixed no in nokia series.
Voice recoding can be used during phone conversation storage & seperate voice storage.
Video and Audio recording is unlimited(depends on memory card capacity), quality is good if you watch the video in rockr itself.
Rockr have 3 USB modes: Modem, Mass Storage, Webcamera.
Webcamera have good quality like desktop creative webcam, good in video chating and video conference.
You can set Audible timer in Call setting. That means u can set to hear beep sound to u alone in every 50th sec of each minute while making outgoing and receiving incoming calls. This feature is very useful for those who are concerned of time to end the call, so u can avoid mis-using of extra time in a minute during the phone call. The 1 minute beeper can be changed to 5/10/15min beeper. Moreover u can set to display timer for viewing the call duration on screen.
Memory card can be ejected using an option eject(without swiching off rockr) and can be inserted with automatic detection like using pendrive in our laptop/desktop.
Phone book is so user friendly unlike Nokia/Sony Erricson. We have a good control while searching a person's contact & calling from the phone book using stylus as well as using finger touch. Srolling of the contact lists and mp3 song lists can be done ur finger touch itself except message composing unless if u used to or having small finger tip. Dialing a number can easily possible by using ur fingers. Stylus is only for style and fast message composing. No need of taking the stylus always if u can do everything with fingers. Stylus is kept in line with phone chassis, so that it is not projected, it acts as an additional lock to ur back cover. Stylus is small and is extendable like the radio antenna to get grip in our hand. You can set left and right hand setting in ur rockr, a very good mobile for left handers too.
There are more feature to tell about my Rockr E6, till then bye.
Rocks u all......
