I was sick and tired of getting the phone that within a month, Cingular would have it as their "go phone/pre-paid phone" and wouldn't offer much support with it. I decided to dig deep in my pockets and purchase this phone, along with a special offer of free bluetooth set, free car charger, and a $50 rebate. The rebates now come in the form of Visa Cards. They are good to pay for ringtones, or anything that is less than $50.
To the phone itself:
* Very thin phone that you can place in your pockets
* Itunes capability to put up to 100 songs on it (that is if you can make it past 20...see below)
* You can actually now save your ringtones onto a memory card or to the phone. Easier to take your tones with you if you ever switch phones.
* Variety of colors
* Save movies, photos, and more
* You can plug it into your computer to charge it.
* Heavier than expected for it to be this thin
* Battery runs down fast if you play the MP3s a lot.
* Mine does not hold more than 20 songs in it.
* Speaker to carry conversation is VERY weak. Speaker to listen to music is very loud. I don't get the justification on this. What is the point of having speaker to talk if you can't hear a word even with the other person pretty much yelling?
* Bluetooth was not loud and it was like I had the phone to my ear. Salesman told me that it was louder than talking with speaker.
* The signal is poor at times and sometimes it takes 3 times to call someone before it connects on your end, even though the other person has picked up and been hung up on.
* Photos are not of good quality when uploaded to computer
* Even when phone is on silent, when you go to charge it (plug in, car, or via computer) you get a very loud beep. This can be very annoying.
* Contrary to the belief, you cannot use any or part of your mp3s as a ringtone.
* MP3s must be I-tunes capable. No WMA files allowed.
Overall, I would not recommend this phone as it is obviously overpriced for the features that don't work. I was shocked that for this to be a thinner phone that it was as heavy as it was. It was like Motorola took a step backwards. If you are looking for a phone to play MP3s (which you cannot use as ringtones), I would wait until this one is cheaper than $100 to purchase. Otherwise, you are wasting your money.
Motorola SLVR L7
This is quite good phone but still it has some typical sympthoms typical for Motorola. Like most Motorola phones it looks really good and for quite long time it was slimest phone on market (113 x 49 x 11.5 mm). Its light and you could even put it in to pocket of your shirt. Its really well build and metal casing guarantee good durability of phone so you dont need to worry. Quality of display (size 30x37mm) is very good with resolution 176x 220 pixels and sharp picture. On other hand camera in this model is not that good and offers only VGA resolution (640x480 256k colors) which is good just for really fast snapshots. This phone could quite well work as MP3 player (especially if you install iTunes on it) but for this you will have to use microSD memory card because telephone it self has only 11MB memory (5MB free for user). Due to its slim and narrow design other people sometimes could echo while talking with you. Only way how to avoid this is stick phone really close to cheek while you speaking. Key pad is typical made in Motorola and after while you will love it. Because it has miniUSB connector you could easily recharge it from USB port thats usefull if you have notebook always with you. Phone has no irda just Bluetooth which works quite well.
Thats it about hard part. Soft part is the part where Motorola SLVR L7 has most weakneses. Default menu is not really good at least you have option to customize it. Weakspot is SMSing where you cant even setup automatic confirmation of sent messages :( iTap is quite good alternative to T9 (word prediction) but has some flaws especially if you dont use different language then english. Calendar is quite good but I dont think that someone would really use it since you have to buy special software for synchronizing with Outlook. I think Motorola SLVR L7 is really good phone if you want fancy phone and dont need three billions of other mostly useless functions.
+ Great and slim design
+ Supports microSD
+ Good quality of display
+ MiniUSB connector
- Motorola menu
- You could hear sometimes echo
- SMSing has some flaws
Ps: English is not my first language so I apologize for all mistakes :)
I have had this phone for 4 months now and I really like it.
-Itunes! I don't even need my Ipod anymore! it stores 100 songs, but you cannot expand your memory so you just have to change your 100 songs every so often.
-I like how thin and small it is. It fits perfectly in my back pocket without an enormous bulge that makes it hard to sit.
-its very easy to use, you don't even need a manual to figure this baby out.
-cute and stylish
-no damage to it if I drop it on the floor, or sit on it. pretty durable! I don't think I could step on it though.
-download ringers, games, pictues easily.
-I have had no problems with sound quality, speakerphone or hearing people well. All have been fine!
-I like the headphones, I like when I'm listening to Itunes, someone will beep in and I can use it as a headset too. But if you lose those your in trouble because they are special headphones from Cingular with a special hookup, so you can't just use regular old headphones.
-when using the internet on the phone, it is sooo slow to load pages. Sometimes it will take 45 seconds to a minute to load a page.
-the camera could be better. I try to take pictures of my black cats and they don't even show up! its like one big black blob.
-the keys are too close together. I text all the time and I hit the wrong buttons pretty often which can be VERY annoying. Also, if you live somewhere cold and wear mittens, you will always press the wrong keys! I try operating Itunes with gloves on and its impossible.
-occasionally I will have a hard time loading my cell phone into Itunes which means I can't put songs on it.
-can't use MP3's in itunes as ringers.
-disadvantage of it not being a flip phone is there is nothing to protect the screen or the keys.
Overall its a pretty sweet phone!
The Motorola Slvr L7 from Cingular is a snazzy phone that will simply boost your self confidence. I purchased mine as a refurbished phone from the Cingular website for $99.99 and it works perfectly fine. If you are looking into buying this phone, there are essentially two main points to cover: Design and Media Options.
The L7 is one of the slimmest phones on the market. It is about as slim as a RAZR in terms of the sides and it is just a little bit longer than a normal wallet. I went from a bulky V547 to this phone, so I was very pleased that the SLVR can slide into your front jean pocket and there will still be no bulge. The interface is similar to the RAZR's, and while the buttons might be small for some, you will adjust easily.
The L7 is the only SLVR model that includes iTunes, and the concept works out great. The interface for itunes is just like an ipod without a scroll wheel, and you can either listen on the speakerphone or with included headphones. Also, if you get a call while listening, the music cuts out and once you are done with the call it resumes automatically. To store songs, the L7 has an included 512 MB SD memory card that fits into a slot in the phone. The card can hold about 100-130 songs on it, but there is a cap of 100 songs max on the L7, which is a little annoying. To upload songs, an included usb cord hooks the phone up to a computer with no hassle, and iTunes automatically detects your SLVR. Also, you can access your SD card as a portable disk so you can upload mp3 ringtones, pictures, movies, and java games to your phone easily. The included camera on the phone has 4x zoom and takes some of the best quality shots I've seen. All in all, a solid media unit.
PROS: iTunes!!! Memory card makes transferring files from PC to phone super easy, solid camera, all packed into one of the slimmest designs that Cingular offers.
CONS: 100 song limit in iTunes, can't use songs in iTunes as ringtones, screen picks up smudges easily.
FINAL WORD: Although it comes at a price, the SLVR L7 has a super slim and sexy design combined with a load of media options to keep you satisfied at least until your contract renewal.
I have used this phone from 3/2006 to 3/2007 with a 512MB micro SD card on the Cingular network and here is what I think about the Motorola Slvr L7.
- The clarity of incoming calls via the speaker phone is good and people can't tell if I am on speaker phone or not.
Video & Photo
- This is where I was disappointed. If a video file is over 30 or 40 seconds, the phone will display an error and not play it. I've written to Motorola about this and they told me that was normal. Can't torture your eyes by watching tv shows or movies on that little screen - unless they are less than 30 sec.
- The quality of the videos and photos taken with this camera is mediocre and come out grainy. Even when viewed in the phone.
- No matter how big of a micro SD card you have, the iTunes program in this phone will only hold and play a max of 100 songs, if you have the memory.
- Sounds quality is decent using the included headset. Handy when you need to save space and leave the iPod at home.
- Nice slim phone. Fits nicely in a pocket book, but the keypad is easy to manuever for people with small to large fingers.
- Easy to chip the left and right sides of the phone.
- Screen is prone to scratches, fingerprints, etc. (same problem with every phone that I have ever owned)
Ringtones & Games
- Not much of a variety of either.
- You can make small mp3 files into ringtones for your phone. Again, there is a limit on the length of the mp3. I place the mp3's on the micro SD card.
- I am comparing the menu navigation to previous Nokia and Sony Ericsson phones that I have used. The menu is a bit more complicated than the Nokia menu, but simpler than Sony Ericsson's menu. It's easy to get used to.
- The ability of the phone to connect to the computer via the included USB data cable is great.
- Battery life is good, but runs out twice as fast if you are playing music or have Java applications such as a game on. Remember to quit those programs if you are not using them.
Hope this helps!
