Excerpt: This phone is very poorly made. I bought this phone at full price for my daughter, who's in college. She has had to replace the phone three times due to technical issues with the phone. The screen is forever messing up and once the screen is gone, the phone is basically useless. We have called the cell phone company each time it happens and they always cannot fix the problem, but have to send out a new phone. Very frustrating. Do not recommend to anyone.
Excerpt: This phone has done nothing but give me headaches and made me miserable. The touch screen is way to touchy. My old smart phone was never this touchy. The first time I droped it the screen cracked the second time I droped it the whole corner of the screen shattered. If I want ti utilize my insurance it will cost me almost as much to buy a new phone. I will never buy this phone again.
Excerpt: I love the slide out keyboard which makes texting so much easier but the inability to adjust the font size has been more than challenging. With emails and texts, you are stuck with one small font size. I wear 2.50 reading glasses and find it hard to read especially when standing in bright light (like near windows or in the car during the day). I wish I had chosen a phone that gives me more control over the font size.
Excerpt: While this may be a good entry-level smartphone for someone, the MotoBlur technology and small screen are definite let-downs. Couple that with Motorola's refusal to update Android 2.1 to 2.2 and you have a recipe for what I consider to be a below-average cellular telephone. The build quality of this phone is solid but the battery-life also leaves a lot to be desired.
Excerpt: I would recommend not buying this phone. It was my first smart phone, so obviously I was very happy with it when I first got it. I had never had so much information at my fingertips! Then after a few months, everything started slowing waaaay down. It takes forever for an application to open or for the browser to load. There are also alot of bugs with the touch screen, it doesn't always recognize when I 'tap' an option.
Excerpt: This phone has offered me nothing but trouble. My husband and I both upgraded to this cell phone in February 2010. We thought it sounded great, considering it had the QWERTY keyboard, the touch screen, was a smart phone, and we loved the idea of the 5 megapixel camera. It is a horrible device.
Excerpt: Physical keyboard is very good for those who like texting, on-screen keyboard is too cramped and predictive texting is awful. Camera is good, but has no flash, so useless in the dark, the phone itself is very heavy and thick (partly due to keyboard) but this makes it quite impratical, internet is slow and battery is awful, oh and Motoblur overlay is a pain in the ass. Have put up with the phone for 1 and a half years now, on a 2 year contract.
Pros: Physical Keyboard, Early Android Device
Cons: Motoblur overlay, Bulky form factor, Poor internet experience, Slow processor
