I'm too lazy to search the archives and make sure, but based on your comparisons and the descriptive examples you gave on this phone (Atrix HD, DROID 4) it seemed like you have never even seen a Motorola Photon 4G (without the Q). I get that its essentially the same as the Atrix 4G, but you never referenced that either. Anyway, based on the review, you confirmed all of my worst fears, they kept the phone at par in some areas but made it worse in others, (8GB internal memory that you didn't mention, vs. the 16GB internal that the Photon shipped with, same 8mp camera that takes horrible pics, same 1080p video capture, sealed battery that still wont make a full day on 4G, sub par speaker phone... I could go on, the comparisons were there to b... (continues)
Clearly you see that I gathered enough info from your review to formulate an opinion about the phone despite my complaints, so thanks for taking the time to review the phone anyway. Knowing it still has the same lame cheap ... (continues)
I thought the same thing about fuzzy pictures at first on the Photon Q but, and im sure you already knew this, I took a small plastic film from over the camera that came on it out of the box. I know to do this on any new phone but this one was so small that I didnt notice it at first.
Well the Camera is not as good as the Photon 4G... the camera quality is actually quite disappointing compared to the new phones that were just released recently. The images come out all grainy. Not sure why the images didnt look like that on the revi... (continues)
Slightly larger battery, same size display, but 25% less talk time vs the Photon? And it's a real shame to see Motorola follow the poor standard being set by the other phone makers with an integrated battery. I have to switch out batteries in my Photon once every 1-2 days, as it can't make it through an entire day with anything more than minimal usage. Poor move Moto. And the display on the Photon was probably the most common negative comment it received, yet it looks like they hardly did anything different on the Q. While I'm sure it'll be a good phone, I see it as a disappointment, especially considering how long it's been since HTC and Sammy have released their flagships for the year.
