Review: MOTOROKR Z6
Although the screen doesn't appear to be any larger than on the Z3, the resolution is now QVGA (320 x 240). Because it has more pixels in such a small area, it looks much sharper. Motorola has also finally found a way to maintain the glossy glass face from previous designs, but make the screen easily visible outdoors, even in direct sunlight.
Recent models from Motorola have demonstrated excellent signal strength and the Z6 is no different. We were never without a signal and the Z6 positively laughed at our vault test, showing 3 bars underground and making calls with ease.
Phone calls were no problem to hear, even in loud environments. The ear-piece on the Z6 is reasonably loud and very clear. The loudspeaker is even louder, while maintaining impressive clarity. Although it is not as remarkable as the early Q9h we recently previewed, it is still well above average.

We couldn't even make it 3 full days without having to recharge the Z6, even with light to moderate usage. This did not include much data or Bluetooth use. With heavy usage battery life shrank to just over 2 days. Pack your charger if you're going away for the weekend.
