Motorola L6 Review
Review: February 2006. Updated June 2006.
At its launch, the Motorola L6 took over from the Motorola
RAZR V3 as the thinnest mobile available in the UK (although that
has now been surpassed by the Samsung P300).
Even slimmer than its big brother, the Motorola
SLVR L7, the L6 is just 10.9 mm thick! Like the SLVR, the L6 is
a RAZR for people who prefer simple candy-bar shapes. It features a
similar chemically-etched metallic keypad to the RAZR, and also uses
toughened glass to protect the display. The design of the phone is striking,
even before you see just how thin it is. It's also available in pink.
Although the display is rather poor, being STN rather than TFT, the
phone does come with a video camera, MP3 ringtones and Bluetooth connectivity.
The L6 also has a built-in handsfree speaker and good battery life.
What it lacks is an MP3 player and some decent memory.
Features of the Motorola L6 include:
- VGA camera (640 x 480 pixels) with 4x digital zoom
- Video camera
- Display: STN 65,000 colours, 128 x 160 pixels
- Handsfree speakerphone
- MP3 ringtones
- Messaging: SMS, EMS 5.0, MMS, Instant Messaging
- Push to Talk
- Java games
- Downloadable screensavers, images, animations and sounds
- Picture caller ID
- Phone book (500 entries)
- WAP 2.0, GPRS Class 10
- Web browser
- Connectivity: Bluetooth®, USB, SyncML
- Memory: 10 Mbytes
- Size: 113 x 49 x 10.9 mm
- Weight: 86g
- Talktime: up to 250 minutes
- Battery standby: up to 345 hours

Great phone. I've had it as my only phone for the last 5 years. It's
been filled with sand on the beach, dropped into a pond (where it died,
then miraculously came back to life the same day) and has fallen out
of my pocket and spilled its battery and back panel onto the floor on
impact countless times - including a few at fairly high speed onto the
road from my push-bike.
It just keeps on going. The only problem I have had with it is that
the battery is now more than a little tired, and needs to be charged
once a day. I've just ordered another battery from the internet, which
cost me about £1.80. I'm interested to see how much longer the phone
will last, and how much more accidental abuse it can take before it
finally pops it.
It's magic. Thee dunt mek em lark thee used t.

I used to repair mobile phone handsets and remember 2005/2006 when these
were new to the market. I've never really been a fan of Motorola phones
but the L6 was probably one of their better ones where reliability was
concerned. Motorola handsets were always notorious for arriving dead
at the workshop, if a non liquid damaged handset wouldn't power on with
a known working battery then it was usually a BGA component that had
failed requiring a replacement PCB in Warranty repairs or Beyond Economical
Repair in other cases. We used to see a fair few L6 returned to us for
repair, however i'd say that 95% of the faults and failures were caused
by customer damage; ie water or physical damage, shattered screens,
damaged casings and PCB damage caused by dropping them.

Really good phone had it for years and it's still here! It has been
dropped quite a lot but still works fantasticly and hardly has a scratch.
Easy to use, good battery could do with a bit more memory though

I got the L6 in January, and straight away was impressed with it. It's
got the features of the more expensive Razor phone, but is cheaper.
I had a motorpla phone before I got the L6, so I found it easy to navigate
(to those complaining the menus are too complicated- you need to get
used to a motorola). I did drop the phone a month ago, went a bit funny
for a few days, but has recovered! Nothing wrong with it, although I
wouldn't advise dropping it to test that! One slight problem- bluetooth.
They don't tell you that to send a file, you gotta go to copy and then
look for devices. Remember that guys! I love my phone, and am considering
buying the L7 sometime soon, and will compare.

this phone is lovely. it is available in pink and silver and is soooooo

ok so the screen is not tft but is is only £70!!
Reviewed by Korpo from Poland on 10th Mar 2006
Bought the phone after loosing my sl45i. Nothing special, but a good
deal for such a low price. 11MB is enough for about 30min videos (3gp
10fps-128x96) so u can watch your favorite series, and with the unlocked
load java apps installing games via usb is just easy. There is a limit
of 30 installed apps. The camera has really poor quality, there is no
video lengh limit (turn off the MMS video setting). Comparing L6 with
other phones such as SE k7xx series is just silly. Remember about the
low price, and the fact that this phone is ment just too look great
so dont be suprised with its poor specs (i.e the 128x160 display).

I've ony had the phone a couple of days and I like it! My sister has
the RAZR and they both do everything that you need, as well as look
cool. For those who keep complaining please remember. It's NOT an MP3
player like the more expensive L7, so don't expect it to hold hundreds
of MP3's! And also, if you want to take decent photos, go buy a camera.
Mobile cameras are only there for quick snaps, not professional photography!
It's thin enough to fit in my pocket, and the sound quality on a call
is excellent. My last phone cost me £60 and didn't even have bluetooth!
If you don't like it, then squeeze extra cash out of your wallet and
buy something more expensive!

I just got this today, for £69.99!!! Wow! I paid £89.99 for my old phone
which had diabolical performance (Motorola v545) even though it had
a better quality screen. To be honest that's my ONLY gripe if I were
to be picky...though the screen is clear and in colour, it is a bit
blocky. BUT! This thin little thing is great to look at, nice and light
and feels great in your hand. The buttons are a nice new development
and it does have features that my old phone doesn't such as the high
quality mp3 ringtones. I'm impressed that these days you can get such
a sleek and new phone for this low price. If you're just looking for
a great phone with an ok camera as a bonus, then this is the one for
you - excellent performance. (If I was to spend more I'd definitely
get the L7 SLVR like my brother has).

Ther seems to be alot of different opinions about this phone, from poor
to outstanding. I would just like to add my opinion about this phone,
I purchased it 1 week ago and right from seeing it on the stand I knew
that it was the one I had to have, I must say that it has not let me
down to date, very easy to use, good quality and very light. I am even
going to change my company phone to this model. Value for money? very
much so and it looks great.
Reviewed by Girdag from United Kingdom on 26th
I'm very impressed. Camera is not digicam quality, no, but its acceptable
quality for a phone, and if I want hi-res photos, I've got a good enough
digicam anyway. Video is reasonable, and the MP3 ringtones sound surprisingly
good - very nice indeed. The tiny size and good looks are another plus.
A few people have reported technical problems - I've had nothing, and
there are less reports than on most other phones, so I'd say that those
with a problem are in the minority. Overall, for anyone who wants MP3
ringtones, a decent camera and video recording, but doesn't have money
to burn, this is an excellent choice - for this price, you're not going
to get anything better. Highly recommended.

I'm very happy with my L6, it has great set of features. The Bluetooth
capability is incredible, it is really quick in exchanging data with
my computer. The design of L6 highly enviable, silver colour gives it
a distinct personality altogether. Highly affordable and handy set,
mind it, L6 is hellbent on mindblowing performance in the coming years.
Motorola should keep up up the goodwork, and support this product with
great care, since after sales support will be the key for L6 success
saga to continue.

I got this phone last week with lots of expectations, and I 'm not regretting

which a man looks for in his mobile these days.My last phone was Sony
Ericsson T200, which was ok but, L6 is a king of features in front of
all my previous mobiles. I feel proud to be the owner of this masterpiece.
Incidently my first phone was a motorola. L6 is a blockbuster and will

Have to say, after reading all of the above comments, this phone might
look nice, but it is very bad. The back phone cover warps away from
the phone after 2 weeks, i got it replaced and within 2 days it happened
to the replacement phone, and i didnt even have it in my pocket! Again,
if style is what you're after then this might be the phone for you,
but, if you want quality, then DO NOT even look at this phone. The Bluetooth
is extremely slow, the camera is average, sony erricson is better!,
storage!?, well lets not even start on that. If you want to stand out
in a disco then buy this phone, there are loads of lights on it. If
you want a phone that is good quality and good performance and a low
cost then have a look at the Sony Erricson or Nokia entry phones. Miles
better. Keep well away!!!!!

feature you dream of having it is the best phone in this price range.
If you are wanting to spend below £100 this is the phone for you. I
have had phones over £500, and so far even this cheaply prices £90 phone
is better. It is the best phone I have ever owned, and probably will
be for years too come. So if your looking for a cheaply priced phone,

I havent got much experience with phones - but I thin the L6 is an outstanding
phone. The features seemgood to me for the price (although I'd have
liked an L7 the extra dosh for the features didn't seem wroth it). It
looks very nice and teh buttons seem fine to me once you get used to
them. The side button for the camera and the another programmable side
button are both very useful and perhaps the only big problem I have
with it is that the camera quality is not amazing, plus the filters
are minimal ('bluish','greenish','redish' - all rubbish and no use,
then just black and white and antique). I was unsure on features whether
to ge tthis phone and when i saw it in store it look quite large face-on.
but it fits perfectly in your pocket and looks AMAZING once you turn
it on (yes the blue buttons turned me :P) Id advise anyone to buy this,

6230 .. I happen to have 6230i and 6230 and this is way better than
the 6230 , about 10 times clearer and so much better looking . The whole
idea of these phones is the looks , same as V3 and that only had 5MB
of memory and they still cost more than the 6230 on eBay . If you want
loads of MP3s to play buy an iPod , take pictures? buy a digi cam .

Hello The L6 is a sleek phone, elegant and easy to carry. The length
of the phone could be reduced or if it is to be maintained like this,
the display could have been bigger. TFT would have been cool. The battery
backup is not as good as the other Moto phones. Downloadable applications
could have been provided and adding memory card could have been added
as the feature as competitors in other brands provide all this at relatively
nearer prices. Overall, if you are looking for a sleek phone with good
features with the phone and the budget fitting your pocket neatly, L6

Very Neat phone, it's amazingly slim and light, I can hardly feel it

using bluetooth, and set them as ringtones. The sound quality of ringtones
is fantastic, very clear and loud. Screen quality is pretty good, camera
quality on the screen is not so good, however I can transfer pictures
I've taken onto my computer using bluetooth and they don't look too
bad on a computer screen. Battery life is around 3-4 days with moderate
use, better than the V3. Bluetooth I believe is the key to this phone's
success, as although it is limited with a VGA camera and only 10Mb memory,
it's fully interactive with your PC with no need to buy waste of time
USB cables and motorola software. Four stars, as it could do with a
little more memory, but for the price the features and design are second

A very good value for money phone, many features are different from
my old nokia but thats more the fact I'm not used to the phone than
the phone itself. Look at the phone specs before you buy it, can't expect
to get a 3G phone for this price. And bluetooth is a slow technology,
you can't make it faster. The screen is fairly good quality for a phone
in this price range and the sound quality is the best I've heard.

I bought this phone to replace another motorola that had given me good
service.I had tried a few others but not being a teckno and having shovels
instead of hands this was by far the best feeling handset with positive
action keys that i can press without using a tooth pick.The display
is very good,keyboard well lit i dont have to worry about dropping my
keys now just switch on the phone.pictures are allright once you set
the exposure.Very easy to use slips in my top pocket dont even know
its there,to me a phone is for phoning this does it in style.

this phone is poorly built the camera quality is shocking and the amount
of memory is rubbish frankly i cant believe the japanese have released
something so shoddy i just tapped mine and it went off id rather have
my old nokia 5100 back even though it didnt turn off it did its job
better than this piece of poo ever could , i would reccomend the motorola
pebl it has better features, the only good thing about the l6 is the
sound quality its awesome for playing songs loud and clear didnt come
with cable so had to buy a bluetooth computer port the bluetooth is
so slow i dont understand this phone

I do not understand all the bad reviews on this phone. It has all the
features of a decent phone and for the money you will be hard pressed
to get anything better. Come on you people, what do you want for seventy
quid! I have one more thing to say to those that put this phone down
and that's LOOK AT THE SPEC BEFORE YOU MAKE YOUR PURCHASE! If you want
a top-notch camera and MP3 player you will have to spend at least four
time as much.

Well I've had this phone for a day and I'm in love, was very disappointed
to have to replace my old moto (c651) with a cheap seimens as it was
stolen, and this more than fulfils my expectations of motorola loveliness.
I'm not a phone wiz so cant compare to other phones, but as far as I'm
concerned a phone is a phone and this is a great phone. You want to
take quality pics? Well thats what a camera is for, 1.3 megapixels is
hardly good for a camera nowadays. The camera here suffices for taking
pics to personalise your phone. You want a phone with MP3 player? Surely
you cant fit all the music you could need onto it, plus the battery
is likely to go dead much sooner. And for you clumsy people who are
likely to break your phones - get a case!!! It's really that simple.
You want it all at once you risk so much more going wrong.

For what i paid for i am very happy! All these people who slate this
phone are fools - look at what your buying before you buy it, take the
time to read the specs and you'll see that the camera isnt the best
one out nor does it have a mp3 player!! if that isnt a problem for you
then i would recommend this phone *****. READ THE SPECS BEFORE YOU BUY!!
I paid £70 for this phone, and i have until now always said i would
never buy a Motorola, but i am certainly impressed!! It does what i
want and does it very well!! again - check what your paying for!!!

The fone is ok camera not bad however if you want a quick bluetooth
then itz quiker to buy a non bluetooth fone (very very slow) to activate
so 1nt a fone get the k700i
Reviewed by Lewis from England on 28th Jan 2006
Nice little with no accessories at all! Looks nice but the screen is
tiny! V3i has all the accessories you can think of plus its thinner
and has a bigger and higher quality screen. Motorola have made some
great phones recently and this is the most basic. ( Eccept for the PEBL
which really is a Complete letdown for Motorola) Besides that, it's
all going well for them. Carry on with the great phones Moto!

I am surprised by the negative reviews this phone has had... This has
been one of the best phones I've had to date. Firstly it's a real eye
turner, everyone mentions how nice it looks plus being a lad it fits
in your pocket and you don't even know it's there! Considering it's
size and how little it cost (£69) it does do a lot, such as bluetooth,
camera, video & stores plenty messages & pictures. I'd say this phone
is a must for someone who is fashion conscious and talks/texts a lot.
Maybe try something else if your after a camera/music phone though.

Good looking phone but functionality isn't great. Fiddly to use, average
camera and no mp3. All style and not alot of function - great if that's
what you're after - certainly gets attention, lots of comments, strong
light emanates from screen.

Think this phone is great, does everything you want it to and in my
opinion is one of the best phones on the market at the moment! ok then.
Maybe the bluetooth is a bit slow but I aint had any major problems
with it! And I dont see how people can complain about the camera quality
at all. Its a great phone!

Reviewed by Amy from United Kingdom on 21st Jan
Very disapointed with this phone. In a matter of 1 week i had to return
the phone back to the shop as the bluetooth had 'crashed'. It was replaced
with a new handset only for that one to break in the matter of 2 weeks,
this time it kept switching itself off at the slightest knock or bump.
I think in order to have a stylish thin phone you compromise on the
quality of the handset. I have been put off motorola's now and will
(if i can help it) never get another one.
