  • WikiFreak Description

The Motorola L6 is marketed as a fashionable phone for those on a budget. Although this candy bar phone looks good, with its slim profile and choice of colors (silver, pink and black), it does lack some features that more expensive cameras have. What features does it have? A VGA camera, conference calling for up to 5 people, Bluetooth support, and address-book syncing are all nice touches.

The Motorola L6 is marketed as a fashionable phone for those on a budget. Although this candy bar phone looks good, with its slim profile and choice of colors (silver, pink and black), it does lack some features that more expensive cameras have. What features does it have? A VGA camera, conference calling for up to 5 people, Bluetooth support, and address-book syncing are all nice touches. There’s also an onboard mini-USB port for synchronization, although it can’t be used to charge the battery. Although the battery is small to fit into the thin design, battery life is good, at 4 - 6 hours of talk time.

So, what are the drawbacks on this phone? Call quality was average on the L6, with static and muffled and distant sound. Using the L6 is also problematic. Although the phone has instant messaging (AIM, MSN and Yahoo), as well as email support (AIM, AOL, Hotmail, Yahoo, and SBC Yahoo), using the tiny keyboard to message was uncomfortable, and the iTAP predictive text is slow and off-base. A more annoying complaint with the L6's design is the lack of dedicated volume keys - the left and right arrow keys adjust the volume, which may interfere with some applications. The L6’s low-resolution display is under two inches, with a noticeable screen-door effect. There is also no memory expansion slot, and the 10 MB of onboard memory limits the number of files that can be stored on the phone. The other missing element, that many other cameras have, is an MP3 player. Although many manufacturers are using megapixel options, Motorola decided to go with a VGA camera. Unfortunately, the camera takes indistinct, washed-out photos and thumbnail-sized, 128-by-96 videos at 5 frames per second. Although the Motorola L6 has some drawbacks, its price and fashionable look may appeal to budget-minded consumers.
