Menus Calls/Contacts Messages  


The phone application itself is a stock Android calling tool. You can use the software dialpad to peck out new numbers, or use the contact application to search for those whose numbers you already have. In-call features are unaltered from stock Android, which is simple to use.


The main contact application is stock Android, but Motorola has developed a cool home screen widget for your favorites.

At the top of the central home panel, you'll notice four empty boxes at the top, with what appear to be other boxes stacked behind them. These are your favorites. Drag the set of boxes down, and the stacks will open up to show you a grid of your top 20 contacts, complete with photo ID. Tap the photo of your contact, and it will open a drop-down menu that offers a handful of quick actions, such as calling them, messaging them, or sending them a Facebook message. It's a neat little tool.
