Is there a phone better than the z6tv for these needs?

by spurkbik201    Nov 10, 2008, 7:50 AM

Searching for a phone to replace my dying one (not dead yet). The z6tv is impressive, but is there anything else VZW offers that is better for needs below? Not need a QUERTY keyboard (low texter, something else to break) or touch screen (fingerprint magent) or mobile TV (no biggie), as no plans to subscribe until any expansion of channel offerings.

From the REVIEWS read here, CNET, HoFo, others, I like the z6tv for:
* better than average call reception, close to E815 quality some say.
* strong vibrate.
* very good speakerphone to use for work conference calls.
* 1000 phone book entries, VZ Navigator support, and 2.5mm jack similar to other phones.

Questions/concerns from reading REVIEWS
* How loud is the volume on the phone? Can you hear the other party inside a loud restaurant or outside near a busy freeway?
* Phone durability after several months?
* Does it has the charging issue over time like some other Motorolas?
* Since this is a slider, any comparable phone qualitywise that is a clamshell with less exposed screen to scrape or damage?
