Motorola Motosmart

CNET
9 May 2012
  • Summary: The Motorola Motosmart has an alluring price tag but juddery performance, a weak battery and an unlovely screen means it never shines. There are excellent, highly capable Android alternatives around this price so make sure you check out the competition before saddling yourself with what is, at best, a very middle-of-the-road performer.
  • Cons: Plodding performance; Stale version of Android; Ugly Motorola software; Low-res screen; Weak battery; Poor camera.

  • Excerpt: This pint-sized smartphone has an attractive £99 price tag on a pay-as-you-go basis and is aimed at those looking to purchase their first smartphone. We like the simple and attractive black and silver design. The Motosmart is lightweight, not too thick and the build quality seemed good to us at first glance.

  • Summary: Overall the Motosmart feels a bit out dated. Especially when you can get jems like the Xperia Tipo for about the same price.

  • Excerpt: The budget Android smartphone market is a crowded place with handsets such as the LG L3 , HTC Desire C , Huawei Ascend G 300 and Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 already fighting for dominance. From our time with the MotoSmart it's clear that it has a fight on its hands for budget dominance/survival. See also: Group test: what's the best Android phone?

  • Excerpt: Design It might cost less than £100, but the Motosmart feels like a well-built piece of kit. Although slightly chunky, the device sits nicely in the hand and its matt black battery cover gives it a touch of class.

TechRadar UK
8 August 2012
  • Conclusion: The Motorola MotoSmart is physically a solid little phone, but it's let down internally by shockingly limited onboard memory, a poor screen and rather duff camera. We understand there's a big market for cheap smartphones, but Motorola has cut so many corners with the Motorola MotoSmart it may as well come in an octagonal case.
