Motorola Moto U9 Review

If you are after a futuristic smooth and sleek flip phone that delivers style and a decent set of features, look no further than the Motorola MOTO U9.

This compact Motorola handset has been compared aesthetically to a beautiful, well worn stone on the edge of a river or ocean, and this gorgeous imagery is not far off. The MOTO U9 is all curved edges and shine, as if it has been worn down over many eons and then polished. An OLED (organic LED) display is present on the top of the handset, and opening up the MOTO U9 reveals a second display as well a flat keypad.  The keypad is fine to use, but the real fun of the MOTO U9 is in the internal display.

The little screen on the front of the handset tells you the time, the reception and how much battery you have left in standby mode, but it can also be used as a viewfinder for taking self portraits with the built in 2 megapixel camera and as a controller for the music player.  You can play, pause and skip tracks using the controls on the display, which in this mode becomes touch sensitive. Not bad for a little flip phone screen.

Audio quality for listening to music and taking calls is fine, in fact better than fine considering the basic nature of the MOTO U9. The music player offers a range of sound settings, and supports a number of different files types including MP3 and WMA. The Motorola MOTO U9 is also Bluetooth enabled, so you can listen to music using the included headphones or a pair of wireless Bluetooth enabled ones. Unfortunately the MOTO U9 does not offer an inbuilt FM radio or high speed connections such as Wi-Fi or 3G; however what it lacks in features it more than makes up for in style.
