Motorola RIZR Z3 review

 Review: December 2006  
 

Last updated May 2007

Rating: 3 stars

In a nutshell: The RIZR Z3 is a slide version of the superslim RAZR phone. It's a great-looking phone, especially with the cool blue backlighting on the keypad.



 

Review

The Motorola RIZR Z3 (or MOTORIZR, pronounced "riser") is a sliding phone with a look reminiscent of the MOTOKRZR and other RAZR-styled phones. In fact, it has almost the same specification as the KRZR, but in a different design. It's Motorola's first sliding design phone available in the UK. With a dedicated camera key on the side, and a 5-way navigation key, soft keys and on/off keys on the main body of the phone, you can access most of the phone's functions when it is in the closed position. Slide open the phone to reveal the full numeric keypad. This is the same style of keypad used for Motorola's other superslim phones, and is easy to use. With a blue backlighting, the keypad looks very stylish when in use. At 16mm the RIZR is not as slim as the world's slimmest slider, the Samsung D900 (13mm), but is pretty slim, and looks good.

The RIZR features the latest version of Motorola's user interface, and is perhaps less awkward to use than older Motorola phones. The RIZR is not the highest spec phone available, but holds its own against other phones in this price range. The camera is a 2 megapixel device and is as good as anything Motorola have produced previously, but not in the same league as the latest top-of-the-range phones from other manufacturers. There's a video recording option and an MPEG4 video playback feature in the media player. The display is a good quality TFT screen with 262,000 colours and a good resolution of 176 x 220 pixels. Again, this is trailing behind the best screens from Sony Ericsson, Samsung and Nokia, but is good enough. The music player is good quality and handles a wide range of music formats, including MP3, AAC and AAC+. An optional Bluetooth stereo headset is available.

The RIZR supports Bluetooth wireless connectivity as well as USB. Whilst internal memory is limited to 16 Mbytes, the phone's memory can be expanded up to 2 Gbytes with a MicroSD memory card. The phone is quad band and has good battery life.

Overall this is a nice-looking handset, but one that lags behind the competition in most areas. It's nice to see Motorola widening the appeal of the RAZR family by adding a slide-design phone to the range, but this isn't a phone that can match the very best from Nokia, Samsung or Sony Ericsson. Still, if you like the Motorola design and aren't a slave to specifications, then this could be a great phone for you. One word of warning before buying though - this isn't the most robust phone, and a number of our users have had problems with the phone breaking or freezing. The price of the handset has dropped considerably since launch, so if you're willing to take the risk it offers exceptionally good value for money.

For those of you who gave the phone a poor review because of the memory. Are you not smart enough to understand you need to buy a 2gb card for it? Thats as good as some iPods. What else do you want? If you can't figure out how you shouldn't have a phone. Do an Ebay search on "microSD memory card 2 GB" I don't really like the software- and am about to hack it. I would like better reception but the features like my podcasts to my tv shows I watch on it takes it soo much farther than my last nokia. and it cost me 50 bucks. so

Nothing wrong with the way it looks but not particularly easy to text on. Motorolas usually aren't. That's basically all I use a phone for, texting. Nearly all the other specs as wasted on me. The screen got dusty on the inside in no time and not impressed with the camera quality. And it has no Scandinavian alphabet! A couple of the keys are in unfortunate and inconvenient places, so you may well be in the middle of a text and suddenly find you've actually sent it, incomplete, by mistake, when all you meant to do was to backspace!!!

I BOUGHT THE NOKIA 5300. HAD PROBLEMS WITH THE VOICE DIALING. TMOBILE WAS NICE ENOUGH TO SEND ME THE RIZRZ3. THE PHONE LOOKS GREAT. I HAD A PROBLEM WITH THE MEMORY CARD. THE PHONE WOULDNT READ IT. THE FONTS ARE VERY SMALL AND THEY CAN'T BE MADE TO A DIFFERENT SIZE. THE SCREEN WAS ALWAYS DIRTY WITH DUST. I ONLY HAD THE PHONE FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS. WHAT I REALLY HATED ABOUT THE PHONE WAS THAT I USE ANOTHER PHONE SOMETIMES AND IN ORDER TO GET THE SIM CARD OUT YOU HAVE TO TAKE OUT THE MEMORY CARD. IN ORDER TO TAKE OUT THE SIM CARD YOU REALLY HAVE TO BE CAREFUL BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO LIKE SLIDE IT OUT OF A LITTLE SLOT WITH A PEN TIP UNTIL YOU CAN GRAB IT WITH YOUR FINGER. GETTING THE MEMORY CARD OUT IS DIFFICULT. YOU HAVE TO USE TWO HANDS VERY CAREFULLY SO YOU DON'T DAMAGE THE CARD. I SENT THE PHONE BACK AND I GOT THE 5300 AGAIN. THIS TIME THE VOICE DIALING IS GREAT. NO PROBLEMS AAND THE PHONE IS MUCH MORE USER FRIENDLY. LOVE THE 5300 OVER THE RIZR

I got this as an upgrade to a phone that was killed by a swimming pool... The phone is really nice. Love the size. The slider works well. Some parts of the software have been updated with some neat features, HOWEVER: I have had numerous lock ups, and blocking out of parts of the phone, only to have to shut it off and back on to where I could use them again. The phones software really lags and it just overall slow and jerky. They REALLY need to re-write it or give an update. For this reason, I am ready to send it back to customer service and get a Pearl. Some have said to look into a software update, but I tried that, and it was up to date already... So, nice looks, but poor software.

This is my sixth day of using this phone. Virtually everyone in US has a flip hone. So my slider phone stands out. What I love about this phone is everything can be done without opening the phone, except dialing a new number or txt messaging. Love the 2mp camera. It does what it meant to do quite well. But itís no where near a stand-alone camera, even a vga camera. The only reason I don't recommand anyone buying this phone is because I don't want it to become a fad like other phone. Everyone and their grandmother has a RAZR-V3. RIZR phone is all mine.

I love changing my mobile very often and my latest BABY is the Moto RIZR. I also currently have a Samsung D900. The D900 was excellent in every way but even though it was slim,it was a bit wide.Also the D900s 3 Megapixel camera was by far the worst camera I have ever seen in any Samsung phone. I am very pleased with my Moto RIRZ.It looks very very sexy and stylish,trust me you have to see this phone in person to see how beautiful and sleek it looks,these picture do not do the Phone Justice.The only gripe I have with this phone is Motorola seems to have changed the internal software(Firmware) of these newer models.Motorola Mp3 quality is not nearly as good as Sony ericsson but atleast they could be modded to perform better but these newer models are not yet fully moddable and the Mp3 quality and loudness Sucks when using the headphones.But in every other department ie Its interface,looks,camera and very high qualityt display,You cannot go wrong with this phone so GO FOR IT!Gr ab Your Moto RIZR today. sidrat100@hotmail.com

I was told the damage will not be covered under warranty as it has been caused due to liquid spilling or exposure to moisture.. ?? Such a lie.. i absolutely loved this phone and was extra careful with it, hence there is no chance of it getting anywhere near liquid or exopsed to extreme weather conditions.

I have owned the Motorola Rizr (pronounced riser) Z3 for almost 2 months, and as my 8th mobile phone, I have been very impressed. Looking at the hardware side of the phone first it is very well made, with excellent use of materials. The glass screen cover has yet to show any scratches, where my old phones had numerous light scratches after a few weeks, so it would seem no screen protector is required if you want to keep it in good condition. The body is made of metal coated with a soft touch material (this can be clearly seen in the battery cover); this combined with the weight of the phone (which is slightly heavier than a plastic phone of the same dimensions) makes for a high quality feel when holding the phone. The sliding mechanism is great, especially as it is Motorola's first; the front panel snaps up and down with little effort (it is spring assisted) and there is a raised bump on the screen for your thumb. This makes it easily as good as Samsung and far smoother than the Nokia sliders that have been released to date. The only downside I have found so far is that fingerprints show up easily on the glass screen cover, and need to be wiped off quite frequently. Software-wise, the idiosyncrasies of the Motorola operating system do take a little getting used to, but not to the extent that I would want to change to another phone. Certainly it is not as intuitive as Sony Ericsson's interface, and does not appear to respond to keypresses as rapidly as say the SE k750i, however it is no slouch and is certainly very useable. I think it will be very interesting to see how the Z6 fares with the new Linux based system. I have read of two issues here and elsewhere: one where the clock does not show up on the standby screen, and one where dust collects under the screen cover. My phone was purchased as an O2 upgrade in Feb 2007 and displays the time on the standby screen in either analogue or digital format (this can be selected in Settings->Personalise->Home Screen). As for the dust issue, this has been happening to me - a lot of dust had collected under the display cover within a couple of weeks - perhaps because I had been using tissues to wipe away finger smudges! It is dissapointing that the screen has not been sealed well enough to prevent dust getting under there, however I have found that it is very easy to clean, so I have provided the following instructions: WARNING - DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS IF YOU ARE AT ALL UNSURE, AND DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO RISK VOIDING YOUR WARRENTY!!!!! Turn off your phone, flip up the front panel and place the phone face down on a soft surface. Use a Torx T5 screwdriver/bit (available from some hardware/electronics stores or online) to carefully unscrew the small screws from the reverse of the front panel. Do not loose these!!! If you turn the phone over you should now be able to lift the top of the front cover away from the display, then slide down slightly to free it from the bottom of the display. Be very careful at this point as there is a small ribbon cable connecting the front cover buttons to the rest of the phone!!! This can be unplugged from the display board by carefully lifting it away, you may need to use a small screwdriver to gently lever it up but in my case this was not necessary. Now use a blower brush (available from any good camera shop) to blow away the dust from both the LCD display and the inside of the front cover. Then simply reassemble the phone by following the above instructions in reverse. Voila - dust free Z3!

This is very annoying, so i am now searching for a new mobile.

This phone is quite nice. It is quite complex so if you are looking for a simple phone go for a Nokia. Its modern and quite light, there are some disadvantages but overall it is OK.

This phone is extremely easy to break, and a simple tap of the phone may freeze it. When it is frozen, it's impossible to turn off until the battery is removed. This is hard to do, as the battery compartment locks up and is very fiddley. On the other hand, it has a cool flickering Bluetooth light.

Excellent reception, outstanding video and photo performance, but a little complex to learn all its features, and mainly, you need special headphones in order to tune fm radio.

ive just bought my Z3 today and it is amazing, the picture quality s amazing and so is the flash on the camera it can easy light up a dark room. only down side is that there is no radio but who needs that when you can have all your favourite mp3's on it, i also got a micro sd card for £20, all in all money well spent.

This phone is absolutelysuperb in design and motorola have done an excellant job. I am used to using slide phones and it definately beats other slide phones in this department. The software is the same as the KRZR but both are excellant phones. I would recommend these to anyone. You hear about the screen on the ouside of the KRZR cracking but it only happens to those idiots who put the phone in there front or back trouser pockets. Ladies, it also depends on how tight your jeans are! buy this phone, honestly is is tops!!!!!

Whats not to like ! Feels solid and looks good. Ok Motorola OS system aint the best but Samsung's is not much better. Nokia rules in this department but in the long run you still get to the feature you want. Money well spent in my humble opinion.

Lately I've been a Sony Ericsson power user (K700i, W800i, K800i) but hav decided 2 try this cool looking Z3. I stop using Motorola/s after my V8088 clampshell as alternatives seemed better. I only took notice to Motorola again after the release of RAZR V3 & SLVR L7 but they're not featured packed. The Z3 is excellent with the MP3 w/ A2DP Bluetooth and a reasonably good camera. Sadly no FM radio. The OS is still not the most ideal but it has some winning abilities. The built quality surpass all the other brands that feels plasticky. The screen is one of the brightest & sharpest I've seen but wish it could be larger. The unique magnesium keypads & blue glow is really cool. Not for the simple minded. Lastly it is a power/designer phone for those who want to stand out... and it did... my friends were all admiring the looks of it!

Brought this phone last week in black from Carphone Warehouse, am really pleased with it, its a good solid design and seems easy to use. It looks very classy and quite a few of my friends asked where I got it. My only problem was on Christmas eve when it suddenly stopped charging and giving strange error messgaes up, also the blue charging light on front did not light up. Took it back to Carphone who gave me another phone which seems ok, but to be honest the blue charging light still does not come on the front (even tho owners manual says it should) and I fully charged it when I got it out of the box but a few hours later it wanted charging again so am having my doubts now..any advice on this matter would be helpful. But in general I really like the phone.

I havenít had a Motorola phone since the Star TAC 501which at the time was probably the best looking phone on the market. To my knowledge the first clamshell on the market I know I used to get looks of envy when everyone else was using their bricks. The Motorola RIZR Z3 gives that same impression it looks great, it has a good solid feel without being heavy, it has PURE STYLE written all over it. O.K it has itís drawbacks the menu system my not be the most straightforward, the camera my not be the best on the market but as a phone it works perfectly well. Who cares about all that you wouldnít worry about a pair of shoes that hurt, or a pair of jeans that were to tight, as long as they looked good and this phone looks FANTASTIC.

Ive been waiting to upgrade my handset for some time now and have tried the usual suspects (Sony K800i, NOKIA 8800, N80, N91 and Samsung D900) and to be fair, they all did what they where supposed to (make calls)but they had that much other stuff on them, that they stopped being mobile phones. Had this phone for 5 days now. Used the software for the first time yesterday. As such only two small gripes:firstly, the screen stays black after about 1min, you then have to press a button or open the phone to view the time. This is a bit of a pain especially if you use your phone as a time piece. Secondly, the supported software isn't compatible with Itunes. Again, not a show stopper but if you want to play and edit tracks, a much easier interface would help. Other than that, a very sexy, stlyish, easy to use mobile phone (it can even make calls!!)

Phone worked well for about 4 months. Then it just started to switch itself off for no reason. Doesn't seem to do it as often when fully charged so now I charge it twice a day. MP3 player works well, bluetooth is good, camera very good. Has gone in for repair now, so hopefully it will stay on when it comes back.
