Motorola Slvr

The Good The Motorola Slvr L7c for Verizon offers a sleek design, EV-DO support, and decent battery life.

The Bad The Motorola Slvr L7c for Verizon has a low-grade VGA camera and lacks stereo Bluetooth. The phone's EV-DO performance was a tad slow and call quality was shaky on our end.

The Bottom Line The Motorola Slvr L7c for Verizon undoubtedly offers style, but missing features and uneven performance hold it down.

Motorola Slvr

Though Verizon Wireless was the first carrier to score the Motorola Razr V3c and Krzr K1m, it was a bit slower on the uptake of the Moto's CDMA Slvr, the L7c. Rival carrier Sprint was first to market with the thin candy bar phone, and Verizon now follows with its own model. Except for a color change, the Verizon Slvr L7c is indistinguishable from its counterpart, and it also comes armed with a VGA camera and EV-DO support but it lacks a stereo Bluetooth profile. Call quality wasn't the best but it's a decent phone if fashion is your main concern. Verizon's Svr L7c is $69 with service.

Design
Like Sprint's L7c and the GSM Slvr L7, the Verizon Slvr looks like a bit like a Razr that's been hammered flat. The trim profile (4.5 inches tall by 2 inches wide by 0.5 inch deep) will appeal to thin phone enthusiasts who are partial to the candy bar design, and the lightweight (3.7 ounces) ensures easy portability. The Slvr has a solid feeling in the hand but it's difficult to cradle it between your head and shoulder. We weren't crazy about the bland silver color scheme; we much prefer the dark grey hue on the Sprint handset.
