Motorola ROKR U9 review

3.7/10 AVG.
RATING



3.7/10
Informr score
The Motorola ROKR U9 currently has an Informr score of 3.7 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 4 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

Combine the PEBL with a Linux-based OS and you get the stylish and capable Motorola ROKR U9.

The ROKR U9 is a compact, but not cramped, flip with a feature set that includes a 2MP camera, voice dialing, expandable memory up to 4GB, and all the customization options you’ve come to expect. The internal screen has a 240 x 320 pixel resolution and measures two full inches.

And it’s all wrapped up in an eye-catching, rounded shell reminiscent of a stone worn from ocean waves.

The ROKR weighs in with a 7.2 hour talk time and up to 350 hours of standby time, which is definitely better than other phones in its category.

For the fashion-minded who enjoy personalizing their phone, the Motorola ROKR U9 is an excellent choice.
