Motorola MOTOLUXE Review: In Depth
13 July 2012
Conclusion: What you end up with in the Motorola MOTOLUXE therefore is a well-built smartphone for the masses. It doesn’t have the power or speed that higher-end devices have and the camera UI is a bit of a disaster, but when looking at the direct competition - the Orange Monte Carlo (ZTE Skate), with the MOTOLUXE's better screen, better camera and better build, despite a few glaring shortcomings Motorola's offering is definitely our preferred choice.
Pros: Large, sharp screen, Great build quality, Handy widgets
Cons: Convoluted camera UI, Terrible flash, Laggy performance
Excerpt: Motorola's Moto X is a phone for the rest of us. Its standard black and white models may not look like much, but fire up the MotoMaker tool and you'll land yourself a beautiful smartphone that feels yours from top to bottom. It's simple, comfortable, easy to hold and – with little extras like Quick Capture and Active Display – a pleasure to use.
Pros: A compact design, great color customization and KitKat support make the Moto X a fresh and personal phone.
Cons: It doesn't have the processing speed or storage options of truly fantastic devices.
Conclusion: As for whether I would recommend the phone to anyone I think I would recommend it to literally anyone who is looking for an android device that’s a little different than any other but it will make you smile every time you use it.
Summary: Despite harbouring allusions of grandeur, the Motorola Motoluxe struggles to live up to its name. On the outside it's appealing enough, but the user experience is less than stellar and there are better phones out there for less money.
Cons: Weak hardware; No Android Ice Cream Sandwich; Camera is poor.
Motorola MOTOLUXE – a budget smartphone worthy of attention
31 January 2012
Conclusion: The exact release date has not yet been revealed, but the phone is expected to start shipping to Europe and South America starting this February, which is pretty close. The price should be around $100 or less – I wouldn’t expect anyone to pay more than that for a mid-range phone on a contract.
Excerpt: If you want a smartphone from a company that has a substantial amount of geek cred and a little bit of fashion sense, look no further than good old Moto and its fairly attractive Motorola Motoluxe . This monolithic Android handset ships with a 4-inch 480x854 touchscreen display, an 8MP autofocus camera, a 1,390mAh battery, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system.
Excerpt: The received wisdom in some Android -loving circles is that iPhones are for those concerned more with style than substance. The response from fans of Apple's smartphone would be that Android handsets are poorly made substitutes for those who cannot afford iPhones . The Gingerbread-toting Motorola Motoluxe proves the lie to both arguments, in both good and bad ways. But it is far from a 'luxe' device.
Summary: Here we are again at the end of another review, this one I have really enjoyed doing more than most because the phone has really grown on me! I really didn’t expect it to as well so for that reason I think I like it even more.
