Review: Motorola Citrus
Bluetooth on the Motorola Citrus worked just fine. I connected to a Bluetooth headset with no trouble, and the reception and sound quality was pretty good. I also connected to my Bluetooth stereo speakers, and this worked just as well. The phone supposedly supports the object push profile for transferring files, like photographs, but problems with the image gallery share feature kept me from being able to test this feature.Clock
The Citrus uses the standard Android lock screen, with a big clock on its face. It was easy to check the time in a hurry. There are also clock widgets that you can place on the homescreen panels, and a tiny clock in the corner of the notification bar up top.

Bing Maps and VZ Navigator handle local search and turn-by-turn navigation duties, respectively. Verizon doesn't ask for a monthly fee for VZ Navigator on this phone, and the app has an updated look and feel on Android that makes it much more useful and easy to manage. Both VZ Navigator and Bing work just fine, but if you're not a fan of either you can download Google Maps for free, which also offers free navigation. Both Bing and VZ Navigator also work with the contact list, so you can tap on a postal address on a contact card and start navigating or search for that spot on a map. In terms of performance, the phone had no trouble following me on my trips around the unnamed country roads in my area.
