  • Summary: The Photon Q 4G LTE is a very good phone, and it has a very good keyboard. That could be a perfect combination for some people, but fusing the two together causes some real problems with the phone's build quality, and its overall look and feel. Still, there's a lot to like about this handset: from Motorola's software enhancements to its solid speed and performance, the Photon Q checks nearly all the boxes.
  • Pros: Good, roomy keyboard, Fast performance, Genuinely useful software tweaks
  • Cons: Keyboard causes some build problems, Thick and heavy, Sprint's LTE isn't widespread yet

Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE Review

Digitaltrends
24 August 2012
  • Conclusion: With the Photon Q 4G LTE, Motorola continues its upward trend in design and usability. The Q keeps up with competing phones in every important way and though the battery and camera still leave something to be desired, they are serviceable. Most importantly, the Photon Q is a perfect phone for anyone who wants a slide-out keyboard. For mobile typing, it doesn’t get better than this.
  • Pros: Fantastic keyboard, Fast processor, Runs Android 4.0, Good feel and size, 4G LTE connectivity
  • Cons: Poor battery life while idling, Camera doesn't match up to competitors, Poor LTE availability on Sprint, Some call drops and data slowdowns

Motorola PHOTON Q 4G LTE Review

Phone Arena
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. The Photon Q may not have the highest resolution screen or best camera, but it does offer quality hardware and quick performance with some nice software tweaks.
  • 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

Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE (Sprint)

CNET
14 February 2012
  • Summary: The Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE is hefty, but packs modern Android power, an excellent keyboard, and LTE 4G if you're lucky.
  • Pros: The Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE brings a fast processor, a superb keyboard, Android 4.0, and a bright, colorful screen.
  • Cons: Until Sprint LTE is more widespread, the Photon Q 4G LTE is mostly stuck with 3G data. The phone is thick and heavy, it takes disappointing pictures, and its battery isn't user-removable.

Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE Review

27 December 2011
  • Conclusion: With the Photon Q 4G LTE, Motorola succeeds on a few fronts. It spruces up Sprint’s unremarkable hardware-QWERTY lineup, and gives Verizon Wireless converts looking for a Droid 4-like experience reason to consider the Now Network. More important, though, it improves on the experience provided by the original Photon 4G, and goes a little way toward restoring the prestige of the venerable “Q” brand.
  • Pros: The Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE is available now, exclusively from , . Though its full retail price is a steep $549.99, that’s on par with other devices in its class, and if you’re a new Sprint customer -or a Sprint customer eligible for upgrade discounts- that price drops to a more manageable $199.99 in exchange for a 2-year contract commitment.
