Motorola L6 won't be a market hit for sure. But it will find its users anyway. These, however, would be rather people, for whom the mobile phone serves mainly for calling and who want to "break free" from the stereotype of a stylish phone with reasonably above standard features. Another attractive aspect is certainly its price.

Strong competitors of the Motorola L6 in this price range will be mainly Sony Ericsson K700 and Panasonic X700. Sony Ericsson could gain the users' hearts by its traditionally excellent menu, the sufficient memory capacity and the built-in radio. As for the Panasonic, contrary - due to the support of the miniSD memory cards and the Symbian S60 OS.

I bought the L6 after my SE K790 broke from water damage. This was the cheapest phone at the store so I bought it. I'm looking for another phone to replace this one as the poor quality reception and dropped calls is just unbearable. I had perfect reception in my home with the SE K790 but with this L6, I get two bars at most and it's almost given that within a minute the call will drop. Pros: cheap price, thin, good quality speaker and loud. Cons: poor reception, no missed call function. Additional info: The phone I bought, I'm not sure if the phone was built for North America as I had to also buy a power adaptor to convert the electrical plug. Less

this was my first cell phone, i got it a little over a year ago and i am just getting a newer one now. it has treated me great over the times. a few things i have noticed reviewers complaining about is the complex menus - they are not complex at all. in fact, they are pretty straight forward.. there are just a lot of options so maybe that's it? every now and then it randomly turns off on me but it doesn't happen often and it really isn't that big of a nuisance. the keypad isn't exactly small, the keys are just all flat and kind of close together so it can be difficult to hit the key you want sometimes. you develop a technique though. it isn't a problem for me. the camera isn't great, but what do you expect from a cell phone? it does the job. it captures the moment. if you want a camera buy a camera. a major perk of this phone for me is the flat, thin design. i don't carry a purse, i usually just take my wallet around with me and this phone slides right into the slot where i keep my bills. battery life is decent, speakerphone is par, and the sound quality on video recordings is great. i would recommend this phone. i didn't need an mp3 player, i didn't need a state of the art camera, i didn't need a camcorder - i needed the L6. it has just enough features to keep me interested without being overwhelming.
