Expert Review

20 August 2012
  • Conclusion: So, is Motorola’s Photon Q a good enough phone to keep the QWERTY alive? Probably not, considering it is probably the carrier's fourth best LTE phone. Still, for those who just can’t let the QWERTY go, the Photon Q does offer an outstanding keyboard to go along with a respectable set of features.
  • Pros: Well designed, comfortable to use physical keyboard, Snappy OS performance, Bright, vivid display
  • Cons: Non-HD screen resolution, Camera performance could have been better, A fixed battery means you’ll need to manage your battery better

Review: Motorola Photon 4G

Wired
8 March 2012
  • Pros: Brawny phone on a fast network is great for data-gobbling apps. Ships with latest version of Android (Gingerbread 2.3.4). Kickstand for movies and physical shutter button for 8-megapixel camera are nice touches. Fast, fast, fast.
  • Cons: Sucks battery like a Hoover. Annoying UI is annoying. Optional 0 “Webtop” dock (shown in the photo at top) is a waste of your hard-earned cash.
