After the success of the Motorola RAZR, most cell phone manufacturers have learned the Apple iPod lesson: packaging matters! As a result, we now have an onslaught of thin phones in the market and many more to arrive in 2007. Here's a brief comparative guide to the ones recommends to its users:


Slim and aesthetically designed the Motorola L6 presents a fully loaded, multi-sensory communication experience. Capture and share your special moments with friends and business partners with the excellent integrated VGA digital camera, video capture and playback and multimedia photo album creation tools. This little communication wonder is all packed to keep you in the loop with its state-of-the-art Bluetooth wireless technology, Push-to-Talk over Cellular (PoC) and advanced messaging services.

The sensorial Motorola L6 with its ultra sleek body and an exotic glass display is a fashionable accessory to flaunt. And the good thing about this is it delivers the features it promises and is no disappointment behind its beautiful body. At 1.1cm in thinness, the L6 is actually slimmer than the RAZR. It just slides into any pocket and at 86g it works out lighter than the RAZR. Slick, urban body that has won numerous fans, the Motorola L6 offers Push-to-Talk and upgraded memory storage of 10MB as opposed to the L2 or the Razr.


Dynamic design and ace functionality, groovy features, the Motorola SLVR ( is packed with all the latest must haves. From iTunes to vivid color display, 512 MB expandable memory all packed under its posh hood this is one happening number. It redefines thin with its less than half an inch girth and miniscule weight of 96 g. The Motorola L7 is not just another pretty face in the market; it comes loaded with a whole host of multimedia features right from a VGA camera, video capture and playback, optional expandable memory that allows you to keep the coolest downloadable ringtones, games, graphics and more. And the iTunes functionality is a boon to all music lovers and can carry up to 7 hours of music. So if you are looking at a Motorola thin candy bar form the Motorola L7 is your best bet so far with a great score on design, battery life, memory and more.


An ultra-thin candy bar phone at only 9.8mm thick the Samsung T509 ( is a keen competitor to the range of sleek Motorola's in the market. A great phone for someone looking for pure fashion without functionality, the T509 is the slimmest handset in the market. A large and vivid 262K-color screen allows for comfortable viewing of images and videos taken with the integrated camera. And the Bluetooth wireless technology allows users to pair secondary devices with ease and in addition, the high-speed EDGE network gives the SGH-T509 access to browse and download data files high speeds. But besides its sleek looks the phone has very little to offer, no music software, and no additional memory space. A pity in this day and age of multimedia wonders where music software and upgradeable storage space are a norm. A VGA camera with no flash as opposed to a 1.3 mega pixel immediately puts it a spot lower than the Motorola range. But on the other hand, a great battery life, decent call reception and call quality do work out to serve the purpose of this mobile phone.


This phone beats all competition hands down. A sleek ultra sexy look coupled with a vivid display, great speaker and voice microphone this hot number is an asset with full marks in both the design and the technical department. Loaded with features, this is no wannabe fashionista. It exudes class and sophistication while at the same time delivers what it sets out to sell-usability. Bluetooth, email support, MMS, picture phone book, polyphonic ring tones, remix able MIDI ringer software this phone is all about the good news. The menus are all quite logical and well named, however the applications themselves are not always as easy to use as the menus. Besides the camera application, nothing runs when the flip is closed. Closing the flip will always cancel that action. High quality and user friendly, the RAZR ( comes with just a few glitches. One-annoying factor is the screen visibility outdoors and some software glitches that can tend to slow it down. The battery life and sound are good, the phone feels solid, and the camera is functionally pleasing.


If the Razr is the ultimate in a good mix of fashion and usability, the Motorola Q ( goes a step further and lays down the foundations for the sexiest, most perfect phone ever. The slim smart phone that exudes elegance, functionality and style! More versatile than the famed blackberry this charismatic phone has won scores of fans. A strong contender amongst corporate users this wonder toy can be an equally useful asset in other occupations.

When looks matter, then yes the L6, L7 and Samsung T509 will add that glam factor but the Motorola Q beats all with its heady mix of functionality, design and solidity.

Samsung has recently announced a whole new series of slim phones, so stay tuned for more.
