Excerpt: Even if it has reduced its personnel to the lowest numbers in all the history of the company, the mobile division of Motorola still lives, and another phone faces the light of day. Motorola U9 is a mid-budget clamshell that targets those people that remained faithful fans of the brand. Small, sleek, but above all incredibly aerodynamic, Motorola U9 was launched in an effort to limit the disastrous financial results registered last year.
Pros: I have praised the phone's design, which is a little bit unusual. Another positive trait of the phone could be the low price. I would also enlist here the presence of a microSD slot and the very nice OLED external display.
Cons: I was disappointed by the battery's life expectancy and the very poor sales package, which doesn't contain anything but the phone. Also, I have noticed that sluggishness of the device, even when not running any applications at all.

Summary: The new MOTO U9 from Motorola marks a change in the company’s 2008 cell phone production direction. Motorola has already been wildly successful with a series of reliable and practical phones, but it hasn't been till now, with the MOTO U9, that the company has stepped out of the box and really designed a style-forward device. The tiny and compact phone features a smooth glossy service, and a unique curvy body that cuts an eye-catching frame.

Conclusion: Well is the U9 worth getting? If you like it, the answer is definitely YES. We are in love with its outer appearance and are with mixed feelings only about the black on the inside. However, it surely looks cool in the grey color variant of the phone, which is for the gentlemen. Some may worry about the visibility of the external display, the camera quality or the multimedia options, but aside from those, the U9 is a great phone, with lots of options and responsible...
Pros: Good built quality, Easy to use, but feature rich software
Cons: Scratches easily, Multimedia features are disappointing
Summary: The reception quality of the U9 was never an issue, for it is a typical Motorola-branded phone. The loudspeaker’s volume is pretty average, though you won’t miss calls when the handset is in your clothes; the vibro alert is moderate strength-wise or a tad better than that.
It may sound strange but the U9 has no direct competition – neither the Sony Ericsson Z610i nor the Sony Ericsson Z750i is among them, although they sport similar finish, plastic and styling.
