Performance:

The phone works fast and it doesn't slack while moving through the menus, excluding the ones with more content, like “images” for example. A slight slow down can be noticed while loading the camera/camcorder, but it is adequate. The Java loads slower than the V3i RAZR and the wait for Digital Audio Player is quite long and nervous.

The network cover is strong typically for Motorola and we didn't experience and problems with it, and during the test there was not a single dropped call.

The sound is clean and clear, and it sounds good, but slightly worse than the V3i. The same applies for the speakerphone and the melodies. They are good but weaker than the ones of the RAZR, and you may miss a call in a noisy environment, since the vibration is not that strong.

The battery of the phone is Li-Ion unit with 820 mAh capacity. During the tests the phone worked for about 3-3.5 days, or about 1 day more than the Motorola V3i, which battery is 710 mAh. The battery can be charged through the charger or through the miniUSB cable connected to a computer.

Conclusion:

The SLVR L7 is a good start of the SLVR series, but even the fact that it is a top model, it has some unpleasant drawbacks. The main problem is the keypad, which is cheaper made and besides the fact that it is light up in one color it is not as comfortable as the V3i and there are more problems with it, especially with the D-pad. The display is smaller, but that is understandable because of the pleasantly small size of the phone, which maintained to loose some weight and is now only 11 mm. Having a pleasant music player with extendable memory, it is one good and of high quality multimedia stylish phone.
