Summary: "Ive had this phone for about 2 weeks and have come rather fond of it! It does everything I ask it!! The social networking and internet is excellent on it. The QWERTY feels nice and is good to use, however, the backlight on 4 keys have decided they dont want to work anymore! And theres no flash on the camera!!!!!!!! Apart from that, I have no complaints about it. Nice phone, well built if a little big.
Summary: Battery life borders on the acceptable as long as you are not a heavy bluetooth or wifi user the projected life is frankly a joke and should be removed from the spec light use with bluetooth and you will need to charge daily. Google bought Motorola and there is a trade off, if you value your privacy avoid this and future Moto products like a rabid dog.
Summary: Out of every phone I've ever owned the Motorola DEXT is my favorite. Yes, it's old now and somewhat lacking in updates to a newer and faster operating system, but the build quality is excellent and the Motoblur overlay can be useful. In particular, the universal inbox and the way that blur syncs all the contacts from Facebook, Twitter and Gmail etc into one unified contacts list makes life easier when sending emails and Facebook messages and wall-posts.
Summary: There is no other way to start, but by saying: I love this phone. Usually, I find getting a new mobile phone to be a real hassle, but as soon as I found this online (and checked it out instore) I was certain it was the phone for me. It feels weighty enough that you know you've got it with you, but light enough to not weigh you down; It fits perfectly in my hands; The QWERTY keyboard is easy to use; The touchscreen works like a charm.
Summary: this is my 5th phone in 2mths contract with orange phone keep freezing no signal sent last phone bk was told they would sent me a new phone out instead of a reconditioned phone but now been told the phone has now been discontinued so they can only give me a reconditioned one can anyone help me here plz i dnt want to have another recon one as it will b my 6th in 2mth plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz help what am i ment to do
Summary: Personally the Motorola Dext was perfect on paper, I loved android phones and qwerty phones too, perfect mix. The phones social networking was very good it linked up my accounts quickly and rendered feeds very well. Camera 5mp no flash which seemed odd as the camera would benefit massively with a flash. My main issues were the battery life and glitches.
Summary: Very pleased with this phone. It is quite chunky but at least that means it wont break! I have dropped this phone a few times with the keyboard extended and it's been fine. Also I don't have a cover for this phone and it seems to resist scratches very well. I like the way you can set facebook updates and text messages to appear straight on the screen in speech bubbles. Quite funky!
Summary: I agree with the other 1* reviewer. When I first got it, it was great but then it started to get really slow and unresponsive. I have to charge it every day, even when it's on a battery saving mode, which I think is poor. The touch pad is really unresponsive and really annoying. It randomly turns off. It's rubbish if you want to hang up on someone because you have to press the screen 10 times. The positives would be the querty keyboard..
Summary: Ive had this phone for nearly 18 months now, and I have been wanted to get rid of it for about 12 months! When I first brought it I though it was brilliant and far better then my partners Nokia, but within months that all changed. As the phone gets older it becomes more unresponsive, to the point where it doesn't work some of time, or presses someone completely random.
the phone is great, but DID NOT WORK WITH MY SIM CARDS, so I asked for refund

Summary: Hi there, I owned a motorola dext before, but it was broken, so I ordered one from Amazon. Everything was fine, until I realised that the handset did not function with my O2 or Orange sim cards. The mobile phone was originally T-mobile, and as I found out from forums in order to access the phone's functions, it is necessary to have a contract with a wireless carrier such as AT&T, T-Mobile. They forgot to mention this here...
