That time, the requirement of long live battery phone is more take a part compared to the requirement of multi function and rich of feature phone and however according to the trend in market. Now, Philips tries releases the negative assumption to xenium. 9@9w is one of the answers. Carry xenium label, this phone still be come up beloved, elegant, and rich of feature.
This phone is come up in candybar form. But with wider and thinner dimension, its candybar appearance is seen more elegant. Differs from the old xenium which seen sturdy, Philips 9@9w is more accommodatingly the fashion side, but still in business phone corridor.
Nothing special in this phone material chooses. Mostly are dominated by ordinary texture plastic. Except in D-pad part and buttons around it which has given by metallic accent.
Take advantage of it wide dimension, the screen then no longer be positioned vertical like most of phone, but landscape. Smartphones which based on Windows Mobile Smartphone is the example of phone with this screen position.
Screen type applied is TFT 262.144 colors with old phone standard resolution (220 x 176 pixel) in 1.93 inches diagonal. If this phone comes up one year faster, this composition can be said “amazing”. But nowadays it’s impressed so ordinary, because a number of products has applies QVGA screen resolution standard for its phones.
Philips not yet does standardization to its phone interface. Thereby, every product yielded will bring you to different experience. Include in 9@9w.

Besides tough enough battery, 9@9w xenium is also equipped by complete facilities. One of them is sound player. A music player with attractive display and supports a number of audio formats (MP3, AAC, eAAC+) and graphic equalizer.
The sound quality can be put side by sided with other phone music player. Even without 3D (widening) feature, sound from player will be accommodated by internal speaker which placed in backover underside. The sound power is great enough. The sound quality of course not as maximum as listening via figured in stereo headset.
Philips 9@9w brings 2 megapixel cameras. Maximum resolution yielded is 1600 x 1200 pixels. Detail enough to be printed on postcard size photo paper.
Recently, double sim card technology started applied by Asia vendor. Mainly is China. And Xenium 9@9w tries to accommodate.
Than using different two GSM phone, you can apply only one 9@9w phone. But system applied is still swapping card. Both Sim Card cannot be active concurrently. To change active card, you are must do it via menu.
Theoretically, Lithium ion battery with power of 920 mAh at 9@9w doesn’t have any greatness. Especially if seen from its power uses which full of inefficiency feature. Happily, there is no 3G here. But, it still must be divided with TFT screen, Bluetooth, GSM network activity, GPRS, and music player.
Power management also has not helped enough. But, duration of 9@9w xenium battery of course better from other phone. In normal usage, this phone can hold out till 5 day after once charging.
Dual Sim GSM in a xenium phone is a something new. And so do the designs and multimedia feature inside.
