What's Good: Great voice quality; fast 3G data speeds; good GPS system; mobiTV compatibility; sleek, attractive design; clean menus and UI; solid build; easy to hold and use

What's Not Good: Rather large for a sliderphone; some may not like tiny buttons; heavy

Bottom Line: MOTO's Z9 is a top-notch featurephone that provides access to nearly all of AT&T's data and multimedia services in an attractive form factor.  The phone is rather large and pretty hefty, which is either kind of nice or really annoying depending on your perspective.  If you don't mind - or even like - the Z9's size and heft, you?ll be sure to enjoy its big bright display, fast 3G data access, and integrated GPS chip with onboard navigation.
