thanks for givging comparison but still i have many confusions in my mind first of al... moreFunctionality wise, if there is anything which is missing on Z6, then its only FM. in all other aspects Z6 has everything which E8 has. The biggest advantage of Z6 is ofcourse its 600+ Mhz procesor. it does make a difference. moving through phone menu is very very quick. scrolling is also fast but not as fast on E8 which is because of its scroll wheel. The scroll wheel is absolute charm to use. it can be used at all places. be it in contacts, song list, messages (even the main message content), fast forwarding rewinding and at all place where scrolling bar comes in to picture. But if are moving inside menu, there is a slight lag here and there for E8. also there is a slight lag when maximizing the minimised music player.
security features of Z6 and E8 are both same, with locking features available for messages, call list, contat list, browser, settings etc.
regarding keypad, if you have big thumb, then i am very sure you will have trouble with Z6 keypad , espicially the bottom most row. also D pad has some quality issue ragarding it peeling off. one needs to be careful with it. E8 keypad has no such problem. if you use E8 keypad as a normal keypad then there will be absolutely no problem. keypad is really large in comparinson with Z6 so making wrong keystrokes is never an issue. also the vibration feedback is very nice. it takes just a few days to get acquainted with its keypad. but after that its more fun.
Regarding music quality, i will try to be as frank as possible. The quality of music enjoyed on E8 is better than Z6. and the main reaon for it is the presence of standard 3.5mm headset jack which makes us possible to use custom headphones. Sound of E8 is more crisp and clear. But to enjoy good sound from E8, it is very very essential to use good quality headphones. the one which comes with phone is of no use and needs to be dumped straight away. but its not the case with Z6. headphones supplied is much better and do sound good but a bit muffled specially if using spatial audio option. But again if your main intent to hear song is from a S9, then there is hardly any difference between the two. Also the equalizer settings which are available in E8 is no use (for me atleast) as it does not work along with bass boost. only one of them work. Overall i can say that the sound of E8 is the best among all rokr. i have used all rokr phones (E1, E2, E6, Z6 and now E8) and can easily say that for music quality, E8 is best among them. comparing E8 sound quality with other music branded phones espicially walkamn is a very trick one. if bass is ones only choice then walkamn phones are better giving better bass with its mega bass feature. but other than that, the music clarity and smoothness is better enjoyed in E8. also the interface of E8 is more simpler to use.
for me the biggest attraction of E8 is not its music quality but its mode shift keypad and scroll wheel. both gives a complete new experience of using a mobile phone. you have to use it to believe it.
siju, 28 Jun 2008except for higher processor, E8 is better or equivalent to Z6. i had an Z6 and then upgraded t... morehey siju !
wud u plz tell me which rockr has the best sound? can we copmare it with an i-pod? does it sound like like an i-pod?
thanks for givging comparison but still i have many confusions in my mind first of all tell men about security features difference between e8 and z6,a good security which was given in slvr series was to lock everything plus you can block call other than ur phone book okay now i am interested in buying z6 the main reasons are 625mhz processor plus its display quality secondly i think its keypad is more soft and easy to use than e8 but u are saying that z6 keypad is not good well u used z6 u better know that, now please tell me sound quality difference between z6 and e8 as many reviews that e8 is number one in sound quality than all other walkmans in sound quality but reviews about z6 says that there is nothing so imazing about sound of quality of z6 please clarify is difference is minor or big or which one is powerful in speakers
thanks in advance
This is a phenomenal phone. If you sit beside someone with an ipod, they'll surely get jealous with your new baby while scrolling like them thru the omega wheel.
siju, 29 Jun 2008S9 can always be bought separately and it also sounds a bit btter in E8 (not by much). If pric... moreEmm... I see. Do u know the actual price of Z6? Especially in Malaysia... us$299,$199,and $149,which one is latest price?
limyool, 29 Jun 2008Emm... Z6 comes with cool S9... Still make me hesitate to choose one of them... How is your opinion?S9 can always be bought separately and it also sounds a bit btter in E8 (not by much). If price is your concern, then i think Z6 with a S9 will cost u same or less than a E8. Z6 is a good phone by itself, (very stable and fast, not a single hang or lag for the last one year of my use) but E8 is better ( new phone with a new technology and thats why a higher price tag than Z6)

limyool, 28 Jun 2008I'm going to buy motorola new phone... Someone pls tell me about Z6 and E8,which one is better... moreexcept for higher processor, E8 is better or equivalent to Z6. i had an Z6 and then upgraded to E8. to start with, Z6 has no FM, no standrd 3.5mm headset jack, no scroll wheel, no mode shift, difficult keypad and many small small things regarding the user interface. the phone is more easier and simpler to use than Z6. the only plus point of Z6 is that it is lightning fast and there is no lag whatsoever. E8 has some lag here and there specially in menu. but scrolling speed of E8 is faster than Z6 due to its scroll wheel. if u want anymore specifc comparison between the two, please ask.

anmol swan, 26 Jun 2008hey guys m thinkin 2 buy dis fone...but cn sum1 tell tell me its sound quality cause ive alrea... moreyou say, bad sound quality of E6. That is confusing. I have an E6 and it has wonderful sound quality. Even my friends who heard it say it as good as SE Walkman. Even the default handsfree of Motorola has very good sound and so does the S9 Snoop headset. What's more, you can use a headphone of your choice, be it a Sony or Sennheiser, due to 3.5 mm audio jack.
And one good thing, when u plug in a headset without mic, the phone mic is used for calls, and the sound going out through that is really clear.
Siju, 23 Jun 2008@ Abhijeet New themes cannot be downloaded for E8 as is done for sony or nokia phones. but ... moreFor moto you dont download themes, you create a new one. What you need to download is skins. Skins is the moto equivalent of themes for nokia. Skins+background+tones is moto equivalent for theme. You can get skins by going to a motoexpress center and having a software update. You get 4 new games, new skins and some other stuff. You can have it updated every 6months when moto releases new apps.
hey guys m thinkin 2 buy dis fone...but cn sum1 tell tell me its sound quality cause ive already had a bad sound quality wid moto rokr e6
