Motorola Charm Review by Sydney

28 April 2015
  • Summary: After using the Charm for a week, I realized that it would make a perfect messaging phone. As a smartphone, it doesn't quite handle everything that a smartphone should, but it has the specs and the capabilities to be a great messaging phone. You can take that as a positive or a negative.
  • Cons: MotoBlur can be slightly annoying and hectic; 3MP camera didn't perform very well; display resolution is low so text and pictures are pixelated

Motorola Charm Review: The Pixel-Faced Killah

Android Police

  • Excerpt: Getting my hands on the Charm was no mean feat. Motorola didn’t seem keen to send out review units to anyone in a hurry, so I took it upon myself to go buy one, under the pretext of it being a gift for my girlfriend (she has a Nokia 1661 for chrissakes).

  • Summary: To get that price, you will have to subscribe to one of T-Mobile's "Even More" Talk + Text + Web plans, which start at $79.99 a month. That price might be too high for newbies upgrading to the Charm from a texting phone or another feature phone that doesn't require a full data plan.

  • Summary: Some form factors appeal through unique sizes and designs. Others go for features. The new Motorola Charm chooses the former as its selling point. Positioned as a messaging-centric phone, the Charm has design traits that remind us of BlackBerry devices.

Motorola Charm

30 September 2010
  • Conclusion: If you're looking for a very affordable and compact Android phone with a QWERTY keyboard, the Motorola has its charms. Despite our complaints about the display and MOTOBLUR overwhelming the small home screen, the Motorola Charm is a solid messaging phone and a very affordable Android smartphone.
  • Pros: Good keyboard, lots of social networking, strong reception and voice.
  • Cons: Display is small and low quality, social networking overwhelms the tiny home screen.

Review: Motorola Charm

27 September 2010
  • Excerpt: The Motorola Charm for T-Mobile is indeed a departure from Motorola’s well-known Droid line. The biggest change is in the Charm’s unique form factor which includes a landscape screen, front QWERTY keypad, and overall squarish design.

PC Magazine
16 September 2010
  • Conclusion: The Motorola Charm is a compact, socially alert Android phone that's let down by insufficient screen resolution and sluggish performance.
  • Pros: Slim and lightweight. MotoBlur is useful. Runs Android 2.1, complete with free voice navigation. Voice dialing over Bluetooth.
  • Cons: Low resolution screen. Sluggish. Poor reception. Many Android Market apps are unavailable. Backtrack is useless.

Motorola CHARM Review

10 September 2010
  • Summary: The Motorola Charm is the embodiment of the “smart-messaging phone.” It runs Android, but make no mistake — it’s not what you would expect from your typical Android phone. It has an excellent qwerty keyboard, a small screen well designed for messaging applications (but little else), and a price...
  • Cons: Adorable form-factor, Keyboard is well made, Comes bundled with an extra extended battery, Camera has Panoramic abilities, Freezes up occasionally, Display isn’t good

Motorola Charm (T-Mobile) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
2 September 2010
  • Summary: We think a lot of messaging fiends will appreciate the Motorola's Charm's unique design. It's nice to be able to fire off e-mails and texts without having to slide a keyboard down or rely on a touch keyboard. The $74.99 price is also attractive.

  • Conclusion: Well it's about time that we find someone brave enough to venture with something different in terms of form factor with Android – even more when landscape QWERTY handsets are abundant.
  • Pros: Fantastic QWERTY, Solid construction, Two batteries
  • Cons: QVGA display, Inferior producing camera, Orientation issues with certain apps
