Because it gives you a bigger screen?

I dont know what sliders you have used, but some are extremely good. The 6110 has a rock solid slider, its build quality is incrediable (same cannot be said for the lens cover).

Aside from that, theres many reasons why people like sliders.

For starters, you can easily unlock/lock the phone one handed. Yes you can do the same with candybars, but not as easy if its a good slider.

Second, some prefer it for answering/hanging up a call.

And some prefer it over clamshells (me included) because its a lot easier to open. I prefer the look too, and a hinge is a lot more flimsy.
