Motorola MAXX V6 review
| ||Review: January 2007
Last updated June 2009
In a nutshell: 3G RAZR phone with 2.0 megapixel camera, video calling, music player, memory card, Bluetooth™ & HSDPA (3.5G).
The Motorola MAXX V6 is an updated version of the RAZR V3X. It's an ultra-slim and lightweight 3G handset featuring touch sensitive music keys on the front of the clamshell that light up when in use. It's also the big brother of the Motorola V3XX. In fact the RAZR MAXX is very similar to the V3XX. The only real differences are the appearance of the phones and the fact that the MAXX has a better camera. Both are slimline clamshells, but the MAXX has a more futuristic look, with its combination of metal and glass and the cool touch sensitive music keys. We'd like to point out that touch sensitive keys, while they look fantastic, can be annoying to use (the LG Chocolate and Samsung E900 have annoyed a fair number of users). However, when used sparingly, for non-critical functions like music, we don't think that they'll be a problem. And they do look fantastic with the blue lighting!
Like the V3XX, the RAZR MAXX introduces a new technology called HSDPA (High Speed Download Packet Access) which enables data to be downloaded at speeds of up to 3.6 Mbps - that's 10x faster than conventional 3G - and has been dubbed 3.5G. This means that you can make maximum use of 3G network services, such as high resolution video calling at 15 frames per second, super-fast music downloading and streaming and live TV on your phone. The MAXX and the V3XX are the first UK handsets to feature this new technology, so this is a cutting edge device.
The MAXX has two cameras: a 2.0 megapixel camera for still photography, and a VGA camera for video calling. Both are good. The video camera is high resolution (640 x 480 pixels) and supports a frame rate of 15 frames per second. The main display is also excellent, with 256K colours and a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels.
Music is definitely one of the core features of the MAXX. The stereo MP3 player supports the most common digital music formats (MP3, AAC & AAC+) and you can plug in either a USB headset or a wireless stereo Bluetooth headset (both optional extras). Sound quality is excellent. 64-voice MP3 ringtones are also supported. The useable memory is just 50 Mbytes, which is enough to store around 10 songs, but you can expand the memory using a microSD™ memory card. No memory card is supplied with the phone, but you can buy these relatively cheaply now, and the microSD™ format cards are available at up to 2 Gbytes.
The battery life of the MAXX has been improved compared with the V3X. Bluetooth and USB 2.0 connectivity are supported, and all the standard features that you'd expect from a modern phone (MMS, email, web browser, etc) are present. Although it's very slighter thicker than the V3XX, we prefer the RAZR MAXX because of its improved camera and cool appearance.
Motorola MAXX V6 features include:
- 3G video calling
- 2 megapixel camera with 8x digital zoom
- Video camera (640 x 480 pixels, 15 frames/second, MPEG4 format)
- Main display: 256,000 colours, 320 x 240 pixels (2.2 inches)
- External display: 120 x 160 pixels, 64,000 colours
- Stereo MP3 player (MP3/AAC/AAC+ formats)
- MP3 ringtones
- Java games
- Messaging: SMS, EMS, MMS, Email (POP3, IMAP4, SMTP)
- Phonebook (1,000 entries)
- Memory: 50 Mbytes plus microSD™ memory card slot (expandable to 2 Gbytes)
- Connectivity: Bluetooth, USB 2.0
- WAP 2.0, EDGE Class 10, GPRS Class 10, HSDPA 3.6 Mbps
- Opera web browser
- Vibration alert
- Triband (GSM 900/1800/1900) plus 3G (WCDMA 2100)
- Size: 105 x 53 x 15.5 mm
- Weight: 100g
- Talktime: 175 minutes (120 minutes when video calling)

Bought this model last 2008 in the Philippines and was able to use it for only 8 months because of software problem. Although its still under warranty, I was not able to have it repaired because I went to Dubai. Would you believe that Motorola Dubai doesn't have the components needed to repair my phone? Crazy! The problem with my Razr V6 was that everytime I turn it on the keypads would only work for a few minutes and then everything freezes. The only button that functions afterwards is the ON/OFF switch. I have a new phone now but IT IS NOT MOTOROLA!

this phone is amazing, it stood up to the 200km head on collision with a bus, that killed my son in August 2007, I found the phone in the wreck and it had been forced under the drivers seat of the car, I was allowed to retrieve it I took it home charged it up and it still worked,and it had all my sons photos, music etc, and worked well for 16 months after the crash, before it stopped working, took it into get fixed it needed another board in it, had it fixed and it is still going strong, I have not got much left from my sons life but his much loved Motorola MAXX V6 is very important to me very reliable.

My wife and I have 2 of these awful phones and regret ever purchasing them. The glass on one "thermo-shattered" (no warranty but $160 to replace). One was Dead on Arrival from the shop and now (after only 18 months) I've had a catastrophic failure because of a stuck keypad (only the on/off button works). The internet is replete with examples of Motorola V3 and V6 Kedpad failures so I will never purchase one again.

I brought this phone and within the 6 months i have had too send it
back to get fixed because off faults including, key pads not workin
only the hang up button (turning phone on and off), screen cutting out
and turning black with all front lights turned on and the camara flash
continusle flickering on and off, music changing 30 secounds into the
song but still says it play the other, photos automaticly turning into
white thumb nails so then turned phone off and back on then all photos
turned into the same image then i got out of media and back in then
the photos became currupt(lost a heap off memories that can never be
replaced), and more so i honislty think that the $250 i payed for this
phone was very poor although i do know some one with the same phone
and has had it for a year and has not seen one single fault.

I've had this phone for 18mths now and it's never let me down. I bought
a hard crystal case for it when I first had it, which has protected
the glass front and stopped it getting scratched. The camera is only
2 mgp but takes amazing photo's, I've been more than pleased with the
quality, as good if not better than my digital camera. Easy to use,
good signal strength, audio is good, I can't fault it. It was my first
Moto and I'm loathe to stop using now I've upgraded to a Viewty. I dont
think the Viewty will match my Maxx for ease of use and hard wearing.
This phone has been in my bag, thrown in the dash of my car, dropped
several times, and used daily, and has never ever let me down once.
I can only highly recommend it.

I do like Motorolas and this was a great phone initially but I did have
problems with the keypad freezing, this was after 8 months or so - with
no warning. The only button that would work was the power button. I
took it back but it did the same thing after being fixed. So far, the
replacement has been working fine. It is easy to use, has a good camera
and is stylish. So due to the freezing only 3 stars for me.

I had this phone for almost a year - and loved it. It did everything
I could possibly want to it to do, and got a lot of satsfaction from
it, although the software could freeze frm time to time, and scrolling
thorugh phone book entries could be slow. One day I was about to use
it and it had inexplicably gone dead. (Battery was fully charged and
had not provided problems. I was unable to get a replacement. A great
phone while it worked, but the fact it died even before the warranty
was gone was dissapointing. - I havce been informed the sluggish behaviour
and the sudden death of the handset were probably software problems.

Had the phone less than 6 months, I am currently waiting for my 5th
replacement as it is dead. The previous 4 phones were swapped out within
2 weeks of getting the 'upgrade'. Dodgy software when texting and keys
stick when dying. Battery life absolutely appalling especially if you
use it for business as well as pleasure and need to use the phone throughout
the day. Nowhere near as good as the V3 range. Orange are completely
useless, they keep swapping it out and will only offer me alternatives
of the worst phones out there that are huge, heavy and totally unappealing
so I am stuck with the useless MAXX for another 8 months until my business
contract runs out.

This phone is aight. I can tell u that the camera is good for a 2.0
mega pixel and recording a video is so horrible. It looks choopy. I
also have the samsung E730, that has a 1.3 mega pixel camera and i can
tell u that phone records wayyyyy much better then this one. Anyways,
the mp3 player is also great and loud. Louder then the V3x. I have a
2gb memory card for this phone with about about 300 songs. I hate when
u upload a song to the phone and to play the song u just uploaded u
have to go through so many other songs on the list. While on the V3x
when u upload a song, the song is currently the 1st mp3 on the list.
The speaker is so loud when playin mp3's but when talking its low. I
also like how fast u can go through the menu and stuff very fast compared
to the v3x, its freezes alot. Last but not least the battery life on
this phone is horrible. U can be on the phone for 45 mins and by the
time u check their's only 1 bar left. Crazy!

This phone is one of the best looking phones currently available and
being a motorolo you wont get the protection of a nokia or the music
capabilities of a sony ericson, but as a general phone, (remember it
is a phone -not an mp3 or camera - they are bonuses), being more stylish
and cheaper than some of the heavyweights makes it a good choice, plus
not many people have them so you can show of to the masses of D900 owners
a cheaper better looking phone. Mine works fine ive never had a problem
and i see the battery as acceptable 4-5 days i can get out of an overnight
change had 6 months nothing gone wrong. Doesnt sratch unless your careless,
like ANY phone. NOTE Please dont say this phone is fragile, its a flip
and therefor has a hinge, all flips are the same. The phone is sturdy
enough you realy shouldnt damage a phone i mean how can you the worst
thing that could happen is it fall of a table about 4 feet hardly going
to break. Scratches are a result on careless owners not a manurfacture.

manufacturers installed the speakers at the back of the phone, so when

sound gets muffled. That is one major design flaw. Besides that little
glitch, it is one excellent choice as a phone and the ITAP is growing

I loved this phone (notice loved)... I've had it for 2 months... it's
a bit scratched which is annoying as I really try to keep it away from
keys etc. But the main problem is I have an intermittent mystery of
not getting text messages!!! This is VERY annoying. I'm with Ornage,
but have never had a problem with them or my previous motorolas. It
happens when sent from other Orange and O2 users. Nobody seems to know
why this is happening but if orange don't sort it out i'll have to revert
to my trusty old slvr!!! The rest of it is great though... the blue
neons flashing on the cool glass front! Camera is excellent especially
with the light! Would be great but text messages are rather important
to me! And when they don't come and your mates get annoyed because you've
not replied it's even more annoying.

I have the Maxx now for a couple of weeks after I wapped it for my old
V3 (The silver one). This phone is so much better!! Cool lights on the
front of the phone for when you have your phone on silence (when in
a meeting). Good sound when calling and for listening to mp3. The camera
is also very good. Useful is the light on the back, which you can use

Had this phone about a week now and i'm very impressed with it. Looks
fantastic and both screens are excellent. Camera is fine, not the best
i've ever seen but perfectly acceptable for fun snaps when out and about
which is the only thing I ever use a phone camera for. I've always been
a big lover of Samsungs and I was worried about deviating to another
brand but I have no regrets. The menu system isnt quite as simple as
Samsungs, but it certainly isnt complicated! I do find that Motorola
ITAP texting system is so so much better than T9 once you get used to
it! Overall i'm very impressed with this phone!

and froze my phone --- declared fauly! Third time, the vibrate doesnt
vibrate anymore ---phone currently being "repaired". DO NOT BUT THIS

I've had a few Moto flips now. V3 - then the V3i - both nice looking
fashion phones. The MAXX walks the line between fashion and features.
I noticed straight away that the MAXX is much faster when texting and
blasting through menus than the V3i ever was. The rubber / metal / glass
combo has a nice feel to it. The front glass looks nice, but can be
easily scratched if you're not careful! Nice phone though, Moto fans
shouldn't hesistate to buy!

Poo poo...terrible phone. Feels cheap, it's way too fussy on the front,
and is basically an utter pain in the backside to operate. It's cumbersome,
unappealing and way too masculine. What a total disappointment from
Motorola, seen as though the V3i and the Krzr were so good. This is
going straight back and i'm swopping to the LG Shine. One word of advice...DON'T

Okay I've had this phone for about two weeks now. Previously I had the
V3 and the V3X so I am no stranger to Motorola or the Razr style phones.
It's pretty good. Certinaly an improvement in a few key ways. The internet
browser is far superior and finally you can browse any web-sites (not
just restricted to mobile phone friendly ones). The interface is a bit
fiddly to browse, but it's not a blackburry and if you wanted one then
get one. Music-wise - pretty good. Playlists can be created, and the
soft-touch screen makes it into a reasonable MP3 player. The speaker
is way better than either of the previous models. It is now possible
to hear what is coming out of it without having to sit in a really quiet
room and hold the back of the phone close to your head. Were I to drive
and put the phone on speaker phone (not something I'd do in the UK as
it may be against the law) then it would be easy to hear messages or
hold a conversation even with road-noise. However I have to say the
styling is nowhere near as good as the original V3. The V3X wasn't as
good-looking either. To be honest I think the metal look and feel of
the first phone was half of what was so cool about it. Shame really.

So sorry to rain on your Samsung parade there Ivor but you are misinformed
with the details,Motorola are the first to feature HSDPA 3.6Mbps (10
x conventional 3G )in their phones. Samsung however only have the inferior
older standard of HSDPA 1.8Mbps thats HALF THE SPEED of the technology
this phone uses!!! As for the phone itself it looks like the team is
back to its usual classic acievements ie a phone that is actually easy
on the eye, as opposed to a grotesque lump of metal and/ or plastic
a la Nokia Samsung or Sony E., while also importantly at the same time
carrying out its stated functions in an effective, competent mannor
ie in direct contrast to the LG 'style "phones" '( allegedly phones
but completely unrecognisable as such among the functional characteristics
of present day mobiles) ENJOY!

I've had this phone a couple of days now, and for a first time motorola
user I've been pleasantly surprised. I was reluctant to get the phone
but so far its proved to be a good decision. The menu is very easy to
understand, although I had to check the instructions a few times, nothing
major though. The text messaging if you haven't used motorola before
is a little different but after a couple goes at it I'm pretty much
used to it. It's very well made, especially compared to the V3, especially
at the hinge. Both displays are very impressive, big and bright. The
music player is very well thought out and easy to use, and the touch
sensitive controls on the front is very good. The camera isn't as good
as my last phone, SE K750i, which had autofocus, etc, but it's good
quality none-the-less, it is, after all, a mobile phone! I was worried
about the 'solidness' and durability of it, having seen my friends V3s
break easily, but so far I can't see any problems with it. In my opinion,
its a very good phone. I wanted a change from the conventional SE or
Nokia phones, and also the Samsung phones which everyone seems to have,
and I think I've made a good choice. Hope this helps.
