Motorola MAXX V6 review

 Review: January 2007  
 

Last updated June 2009

Rating:

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)
  • Battery standby: 350 hours

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'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.

I think this phone is very poorly designed. I used it for a week before I took it out of my bag to find the glass cover cracked. It hadn't been dropped or knocked against anything. Three weeks later I'm still waiting for it to be repaired but Motorola keep arguing its my fault. I'm pretty upset with being accused of damaging the phone. Why design a phone with a glass cover that can't stand up to being carried around in your handbag?

I totally love this phone. This is my 2nd Motorola phone. I used to have the L7 Silver and I was very happy with it. Based on my experience with Motorola, I've decided to buy another one (Maxx V6). So far, I have no regrets. But I'm quite concerned about the battery life. It's almost everyday that I need to charge. I'm thinking of buying another one even if it's from my own pocket. I've never had a better phone. Apparently, this is the best.

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!

Called motorola and they basically said they can't do notthing about it cuz its not a U.S phone. According to them U.S motorola phones and japanese motorola phones (like this one) are built with diffrent versions in it. So there go my 1 yr warranty. Wat a waste....

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. thanks for reading the mini review

I am now using Motorola MaXX V6 for 2 months now. Its a really great phone with everything you need. A good camera, 3G and a sleek design. But i have a bad experience with this phone. THE SECOND DAY i got this phone, i set an alarm in the morning and the whole day, the alarm sign wont go off. i tried restarting the phone and everything but the alarm sign is still there. And the phone's flip feels oddly loose as if its going to fall off. i send the phone to the nearest MOTOROLA SERVICE CENTRE and i had to leave my phone day for a day to get the alarm problem fixed. But the loose flip..they said, they cant do anything. (in a rude way) and i said its ok. THE SECOND WEEK, i charged my phone overnight (that is what ususally people do) and the next morning, i got a blank screen. When back to the SERVICE CENTRE and they said they have to get it check.left the phone there for 3 days. when i got it back, the changed the whole flip. A MONTH using this phone, suddenly this phone doesnt read my memory card and so do other memory cards. Went back to the SERVICE CENTRE and they get it check and gave me a new memory card after arguing with a formatted phone..AGAIN. (3 times. Imagine the hasle of transferring phone book contacts) Oh yeah.. and at the same time, some menu was in the MALAY LANGUAGE when i select the English language. Now, everything is ok and i hope nothing will happen. i will not recommend this phone to anyone due to the SERVICE from MOTOROLA and the trouble fixing this phone. i was suppose to get the NOKIA 8800 SIROCCO.

i got this fone 5 days ago =) with a mindset that unconventional is better =) in the philippines 73% of the cell phone users prefer nokia for its elegant design and the notion that its the most user friendly phone. This fone is really sexy for us guys, black color combined with glass is very classy, Its a James Bond fone, mysterious and smart. With the features, the camera, the bluetooth, the interface and the HSDPA are superb. One down side is the THEMES, it only comes with three themes, and in order to add more themes u need to download a p2ktool from modmy moto.com to flash the firmware of the fone. This is not only a hassle to users, it can definitely damage the fone. Im an electronics engineer and i know the nitty gritty effects of flashing a firmware, when the firmware is messed up? u myt as well throw the fone away. Design wise, the fone is superb, accesibility wise, its good, Functionality, its excellent.

Aesthetically, this phone is a blast. As many of the reviews would already have told you, it is a head-turner and being my first motorola phone, I absolutely enjoy using its programme. One point to note is that the manufacturers installed the speakers at the back of the phone, so when you decide to broadcast music and settle the phone on the table, the 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 on me.

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 continously.

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!

Third time, the vibrate doesnt vibrate anymore ---phone currently being "repaired". DO NOT BUT THIS PHONE!! IT IS TERRIBLE!!

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 BUY IT.

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.
