Fantastic Keyboard phone!

 

Sep 18, 2012 by undergroundgilligan

I have used this device for several days and I was very impressed by many things Motorola did with this phone.

I am not a keyboard fan but I am looking past that for this review.

Pros-
Keyboard has great feedback and keys that light up. The slider used feels very secure.
Screen quality is quite good, still less than the Evo Lte but overall a good color balance and bright.
The device feels great in the hand and Motorola didn't use any cheap products here. Very solid.

Cons-
Battery life could be better, I seem to have to charge it more often but with the battery size they used it is right on par.
Camera needs work. Pictures seem blurry and stale.
No removable SIM card for traveling? For me this is not a big deal but for the traveler this means you can't use that pre-paid SIM when you travel.

Boarderline-
8 GB internal storage seems small to me but I still never filled it, 16GB should be standard on a phone like this.
Smartactions are quite a gimmick, they tend to be more of a headache than it is worth. (ex. when using a data app like speedtest.net if Wi-Fi is in the area it will try and connect.)

If the battery life and camera were better I would recommend this device to many people. But even being a light user you can burn through the battery quite fast.
