About this Deal
The Motorola Z9 has a sharp design, a generous feature set, and satisfying music and video quality. But most of all, its call quality is outstanding. The Z9's navigation array is dominated by a large Razr-like toggle with a central OK button. It's surrounded by a tactile silver ring, which makes it easy to use. The remaining navigation controls (two soft keys, a Web browser shortcut, the Talk and End/power controls, and a Clear/back key) are flush, without any clear separation between them. Yet, a closer look will show that they're not touch controls; rather, they offer a tactile "push" feel and a soft "click" sound when pressed. They're also covered by tiny silver bumps that are similar to the Motorola Rokr E8. The bumps are a nice addition as they allow us to use the controls by feel. The keypad buttons have a similar design except they rest on a slippery, reflective surface. That can be an issue for fast texters, and would have preferred a brighter backlighting.The MOTO Z9 has a large, brightly colorful 2.4-inch screen with a 240 x 320-pixel resolution and a depth of 262K colors. With the redesigned, more intelligent interface, you'll be able to search for contacts faster and avoid duplicate entries for the same person while allowing contacts to have multiple numbers. The customizable main menu means you're never more than 2 to 3 clicks away from your favorite applications. And text messaging is easier, with the MOTO Z9 recognizing what type of message you are sending.This phone provides Bluetooth version 2.0 wireless connectivity, and includes profiles for communication headset, handsfree car kits, and photo printing. With the A2DP Bluetooth profile, you can stream your music to a pair of compatible Bluetooth stereo headphones. You can connect your laptop (either via Bluetooth or wired USB) and enjoy dial-up networking--surf the Internet, send email, and access files from a server.Call quality could have been much better. Voice over the call sounds somewhat integrated with noise. Performance of the speakerphone is OK. Its battery gives you an average of 3 hours of continuous talk time and 3 days if it is used moderately.
