If I were in the Moto Engg team I would have increased phone's thickness by 1 mm and put Roker E6's 1000 mAh battery on it. Its a Music phone based on Linux ... man.
And for a music phone I would definetly add a FM radio too.
I would love this phone, the style is better then samsung who own the slider market :)

So fellow indians and other nationalities......plz do not purchase this phone till all these bugs are fixed....as u will feel really bad wen u find out that it wasnt wt u expected
Nice Display. Camera, Good.
Over all its Nice
Does this phone beat the v3i, which is like the 'icon' phone of motorola the last couple of years?
What's your opinion?
there must be some malfunctional phones!!
the fewer the better@
I've had this phone for only one week and I've had to replace it twice. I'm now waiting to replace it again next week. I am finding that when I adjust the volume while playing mp3s the sound cuts out for a second. The sound also cuts out when I go in and out of network range. Motorola Australia have told me that the three ROKR Z6's that I've had so far may be from a bad batch (don't they bother with quality testing anymore?). I have wasted so much time going backwards and forwards to the dealer for replacements as well as emails and telephone support with Motorola. Motorola's support has been less than satisfactory. My last phone call with their customer support line told me if I wanted the phone replaced it would take longer to do it through Motorola than through the dealer. Basically, I don't think they care and would prefer you not to bother them. My dealer spoke to his Motorola representative and explained my issues and the rep's response was "what does he want?" The dealer replied "a fully functioning Z6!" They told the dealer that I should write down my issues and send it to them. Motorola telephone support also said I should put it in writing and send in a complaint. Obviously complaining over the phone is not enough for them now days, even though they have notes and a case i.d. describing all the issues I've discussed with them already! They want me to waste more time and possibly they hope that I just won't bother.
So rather than wasting any more time with them, I thought I'd share my experience with a wider audience. This may be a good phone when it works properly but God help you if you get one from a faulty batch and have to deal with Motorola Australia. If I wasn't stuck on a 24 month plan I would swap brands.
can u guys tel me where u can find games for this mobile? i tried downloading games but wen installed it says not enough resourses...help plz...
As I own one, I'll give a little insight;
The camera is OK. Just OK. The colour rendering is even throughout the image and better than most Motorolas (IN FACT IT IS SURPRISINGLY GOOD) but the handset tends to blur ALOT even with the slightest movement. I don't know if this is on my unit only, as I haven't heard anyone else complain. Video recording is only at QCIF, but I believe future software updates may change this.
The sound is not bad, also better than most Motorolas, but not quite SE, I think. Although, switching on the S9 gives it one helluva punch. That's when the rokr starts rocking! It's got stereo widening and bass enhancement. Stereo widening works very well, but bass boost decreases volume significantly. The drawback with this handset is the built in speaker, it could have been better / bigger. The software does compensate quite a bit.
The slider is absolutely perfect. Way better than the Z3 (I had one) it's smooth, spring loaded and sturdy. During the first week, I opened and closed the phone as much I could, and the only thing that wore out was my cramping thumb.
The battery could be better. Its life is much lower than the z3 (due to the screen, most likely). Java games drain it within 2.5 hours. Lowering the brightness helped alot and didn't affect the visibility. It was clear even in direct sunlight. I am very happy about that.
The shiny chrome finish does not highlight fingerprints. In fact, they are almost non-existent. I was surprised.
Also, I haven't experienced any dust creeping in under the screen as I did with the Z3. Seems they fixed that problem.
The platform is apparently called MotoMagx, which is, as I understand, not the same as the software on the E2 (Which was Juix). It's newer, with far less java and lots more Linux. That's why people have been unable to mod it, I'm told. Although, the UI is almost the same.
Any questions, feel free to e-mail or ask here.
