Never having owned a Motorola mobile phone before and having heard a good number of "horror stories" regarding their usability and reliability I was somewhat dubious about receiving the L7 SLVR as a replacement for my beloved w800i (which had a rather unpleasant confrontation with a car :( ).

I should never have worried! This has to be one of the best phones I have ever owned - definitely on a par with the w800i. I'm something of a music fanatic, hence my purchase of the w800i (a dedicated Walkman phone) so this review is going to focus primarily on the audio performance.

Unpacking the phone when it arrived, I was absolutely astounded to discover just how thin and light it really is, a true technological marvel if ever there was one. The phone itself is extremely well built, demonstrating none of the "poor" qualities I had heard associated with Moto's in the past. I was somewhat concerned (after experiencing what the SE had to offer) that the screen quality may fall below my somewhat stringent expectations, however this is most certainly not the case - the screen on this little phone is truly out of this world, superbly clear and bright. The only slight niggle I have with the screen is that it picks up fingerprints very easily (although, I should note, it does not seem to scratch easily).

The phone's software is a marvel to work with, it's extremely responsive and has never let me down (crashed, frozen or "white screened") yet, in two months of continuous use. I was a little disappointed to discover that the UK version of the phone does not come preinstalled with the mobile version of Apple's iTunes software, as the American variant does, however I found the inbuilt Motorola software to be more than sufficient for occasional listening, with the option to install iTunes widely available over the internet, should you crave compatibility with your iTunes enabled computer. The sound quality from the built in speaker really is second to none, with extreme volume and admirable bass levels. Music can also be played via standard headphones (albeit using a 2.5mm to 3.5mm jack plug adapter, which is less than ideal) or even via your bluetooth headset.

A brilliant little mobile for student's and businessmen alike :D

Integrated camera, 4X zoom and video functionality
262k colour screen
removable transflash memory card
Triband
Bluetooth enabled
MiniUSB connectivity.

EDIT: Forgot to say, I didn't actually pay for this phone - It was an insurance replacement for my w800i. However, it is available for £119.99 at CPW now!

Hiya, that was a good review, although it would have been good to know how much the phone cost you (if not on contract). Just a minor point really - no offence meant. Di x
