Sliding keyboard is the best feature.

cparkhillacct, Ebay

  • Summary: Broke the glass on my phone. So needed a replacement. Wanted a sliding keyboard, so not many options available. This Motorola was exactly like my previous phone which I had just gotten 2 months ago. (Oops, no insurance!! I hadn't damaged any of my phones in the past 14 years-so why buy insurance?!) Still learning phone features so can't rate if this phone is better than some other product. Just happy to having sliding keyboard again.

The non-removable battery will kill the phone.

LouisCyphre, Phone Arena

  • Excerpt: I had mine fail after having it for over 16 months two days ago. The battery failed, swelled up and apparently took out the microSD card slot. Non-removable batteries are a MAJOR ENGINEERING fault. That's the most likely component to fail. If the battery fails and swells on a phone with a removable battery the battery cover is most likely to pop off.
  • Pros: Slide out QWERTY keyboard., International (Worldmode).
  • Cons: Non-removable battery., Screen resolution.

Love it!!!! Battery could be better.

  • Summary: I liked it so much that I bought two more new ones for my family. I bought mine used on ebay a couple of weeks ago. Works great. I just wish the battery life was better. It is not a huge deal for me, however, because I have a charger everywhere I turn. The keyboard is great. The touchscreen is responsive. I got on Sprint's Framily plan for $25/mo. + taxes and fees.

The Motorola Photon Q 4G is hard to beat.

jamesandrosemary, Ebay

  • Summary: This was a replacement for another Photon 4G that I damaged so tha in itself says a lot about how I feel about it. I'm an Android fan and I love the slideout keyboard.

decent phone

  • Excerpt: i like this phone, i got it when it first came out and it was top of the line then and still works now. i broke the speakers a few months ago and now i have a new phone, but i still actively use this one as an ipod and for doing stuff that could screw up my new phone. the kickstand is nice, and probably one of the best features.
  • Pros: kickstand, matte plastic, 1gb ram
  • Cons: small battery, poor wifi antenea, smudgy screen

nice one to have, but I'd say its not better than droid 4

rcsiberia, Ebay
31 October 2013
  • Summary: I bought this phone and found its screen glass is so bad. Scratches appear very fast. The screen of mine was slightly broken and I ordered a new digitizer, and this new digitizer (not original) is much much much better than the original screen. The phone is great, bright screen, resolution is not so high so performance is good, the bootloader can be unlocked by official motorola site, BUT. It has just 3.7Gb of internal storage.
