Review: Motorola i9 Stature

Form Basics Extras Video Wrap-up Comments  2  

The i9 confuses me. It does some things, such as calling and PTT, extremely well. The limitations of the iDEN network, however, are very clear.

The camera may have a good user interface, but the pictures are sub-par. The music player may work really well, but without a headset jack of any kind, it's rather wasted on this device. The SMS/MMS features work as well as on any other phone, but there's no IM support and the email application is extremely limited. These issues may not bother everyone, but they bother me.

At its core, the i9 succeeds at being a rock-solid communications device that improves stylistically over other iDEN phones from Motorola. It may be better looking than the typical iDEN chunker, but in this case, beauty is only skin deep.
