Compare U9 Purple Deals
Motorola’s U9 in luscious purple is a compact and curvy flip phone: at 90 x 49 x 16 mm and weighing only 88g, it will slip into the smallest designer handbag - yes, it is unashamedly a “girly” phone, ticking all the significant boxes. A mirror finish conceals an external display (128 x 160 pixels) that comes alive with animated screensavers and touch-sensitive music controls, while the main TFT display beneath the hood is 320 x 240 pixels resolution.
While offering only a 2 megapixel camera with no flash, it does the job for on-the-go snaps and a 15 fps video camera has 4 x digital zoom. The music player supports all popular formats.
Internet is via GPRS/EDGE, so it is not the quickest, but it supports SMS, MMS and email. As a quad-band phone, the U9 potentially offers global roaming. Utilities include a hands-free speakerphone and picture caller ID.
One of the best equipped mobiles in the sub-£100 price range, the U9 is an eye-catcher for its colour and design.
Internal memory is only 25 Mbytes, but a microSD card slot support additional storage up to 4GB. Battery life is rated at seven hours’ talk time or 350 hours on standby from a full charge.
