The Good Good looking, thin and compact body. Decent set of features, including Bluetooth. Low price.
The Bad Easily smudged display. No memory card slot.
The Bottom Line A generally useful and easy to use phone, the L6 would be a great choice for anyone who wants a reasonable amount of features in their phone, but isn't too concerned about having the most up to date and advanced innovations. Most importantly, they also won't have to spend too much on the phone, which makes it a good choice for pre-paid users.
The L6 is one of the thinner phones in the market, measuring just 113 by 49 by 10.9mm and weighing just 91 grams. It has a solid silver metallic casing and look, with a form-factor that easily allows it to fit in a pocket or handbag. The only drawback to this design is that it is longer than many phones. The keys are inlayed flat on the keypad, and while generally not a problem, they occasionally seemed difficult to use, especially during one-handed operation. The menu is accessed via a four-way rocker switch with a central selection key plus four additional buttons for quick-access and two buttons for other access on the edges of the unit. The VGA camera with 4x digital zoom is on the back of the unit near the top.
With a design definitely aimed at clued-in but not too technical consumers, the L6 has a range of features that appeal to the basic and more advanced markets. The L6 is a tri-band phone with up to 315 minutes talk time and 345 hours standby time.
Connectivity options are excellent, with a mini-USB port that is used for both power recharging and PC connectivity. An impressive feature for a phone this cheap is the Bluetooth connectivity that allows the phone to interface with a variety of devices and to transfer files or data to your PC.
