Is It Your Type?
For lovers of the original Motorola Q, there are definitely improvements to be excited about with the new Motorola Q9M. It represents a solid step up in hardware from the previous generation Q. Not only is it more visually appealing, it just feels better to use.

Email Impractical with Q9
I set up my email using my Outlook account. Because my business email is very public, I receive over 200 spam emails a day. I have a spam filter on the Outlook account.
Once my email was configured thru the Q auto-sync, I would receive these unwanted spam emails because the emails were pulled from the server, not my inbox. I was told this was the only possible way to do this. My only option was to only allow specific senders thru my VERY LIMITED push preferences. This is not practical either, as I need to get email from people contacting me thru my business website.
But that's not the worst part! There is no option to block attachments on emails coming to the ph...

You CAN adjust the sound
I didn't think they were that effective. I tested them on my S9s as well as the external speakers. The sound was worse when used with...
When it comes to the laggy processor, they probably just have some left over from the old RAZR and decided to stick them in there.
