Motorola Citrus Review

2 January 2011
  • Summary: As I stated in the beginning of this review, I had to quickly adjust my perspective of the Motorola Citrus  due to its positioning and difficulties that I had with inputting text. It's not one of the high-end devices I typically use. The market for this device is for those people looking at their first or second smartphone, without the bells and whistles of some of the more notable Android releases.
  • Pros: Small size, Good battery life (in most conditions), Durable construction
  • Cons: Performance is not great, Small screen

Motorola CITRUS Review

17 December 2010
  • Summary: Android phones are like reality TV shows—they’re everywhere, only far less annoying and actually useful. So, it’s inevitable that Android phones would make their way into the entry/mid-level phones circuit, and the Motorola Citrus is one of the troopers bringing a taste of the most popular platform to the users on a tight budget. However, the Motorola Citrus is not alone. For $30 more, there’s the LG Vortex.
  • Cons: Good battery life, Decent camera performance, Cheap materials, poor display, Laggy phone performance, Overpriced, even if its free

Motorola Citrus (Verizon Wireless)

PC Magazine
16 December 2010
  • Conclusion: The Motorola Citrus is a poor Android device for Verizon subscribers; it's not nearly enough of a contender to warrant the modest savings at the retail counter.
  • Pros: Clear voice quality. Good battery life.
  • Cons: Screen resolution is too low for Android UI, and also limits Android Market app compatibility. Backtrack is useless. Stubborn on-screen QWERTY keypad. Lots of bugs.

Review of Motorola Citrus

Testfreaks blog
7 December 2010
  • Summary: Today for review I’ve got another inexpensive phone from Verizon, it’s an Android phone running version 2.1 and it’s from Motorola. The Citrus is meant to be basic and it is, it’s small and compact but yet it gets the job done. The Citrus features a touchpad on the back called Backtrack that can be used for navigation if the user wishes instead of the normal touch screen.
  • Pros: Simple and easy to use, Touch pad on the back is interesting, Very small
  • Cons: Poor camera, Browsing experience is not the best, Low resolution and the screen is small

Review: Motorola Citrus

29 November 2010
  • Excerpt: The Motorola Citrus was announced in early October alongside the Droid Pro. Besides an apparent marketing attempt to begin naming phones after fruit, the Citrus is Motorola’s offering for a low-cost Android smartphone.
