Anonymous, 24 Dec 2010Does this phone has chinese languange? I did purchase my Quench XT5 in Australia and the only languages it has installed on it is listed Deutsch, English, Espanol,Francais, Italiano.
I have looked and as yet have not been able to find any mention of the Chinese language in the settings.
I did pick up a Quench XT5 day few days ago, it is workimg very well, the touch screen is very sensitive in many applications and i am learning to control my touch pressure and have only just remembered to take advantage of the roller ball function.
This set has a nice feel and portrays the impression of sofistication and quality.
It took me a long while to place many of my MP3's onto playlists but now thats done i will post up soon on my opinion of the music player and other stuff.
Great phone, the specs and reviews were very accurate.
Bought from dick smith for $377, bargain!
Seems like Motorola would not be updating the android version on XT5 (and XT3 as well) -> https://supportforums.motorola.com/community/manager/softwareupgrades
What sounds strange is that Moto says that XT3 would remain on 1.6. From what I know, XT3 is pre-loaded with 2.1. Does Moto mean 2.1? Is Moto out of their mind for not updating the android versions? Obviously android updates are not easy for them (UI changes and so on), but that's sad for customers who want to use new technology (at least for 1 year from the purchase of newly launched phone).
@ce hacker, 21 Dec 2010Dear terry
as you are not addicted to games and social networking it will be wise to have any... more @ce hacker thanks, i did buy a cookie fresh just recently for my girl who will not use it as she prefers her old nokia 3315, therefore i kept it and i like the touch experience although it could be a tad more responsive that is why as also i am a bit of a mobile addict would like to use the Quench xt5 because of its speaker quality ringtones and presumably superior and hopefully more responsive toush over the cookie fresh which is not bad for what i paid.
I wonder how the roller ball will perform in time.. hmmmm
I also like the idea of gorilla glass hmmmm what do you recon .....
as you are not addicted to games and social networking it will be wise to have any of the phone but a 'hard' qwerty will be easier to use.
Also try to go for a tab as they have larger screens and hence more easier to use.

What's the stock Recovery of this phone? I lost mine by installing Clockworkmod :(
Best phone with most required specifications ..
A must buy phone wid gud price..
The ringtones are loud, which is boosted by a dedicated speaker at the back together with a good tunes selection. The vibro is above average. Speech transmission is not a problem.
From the use of Gigabyte Z1305 we know that it freezes when you get SMS from short phone numbers like хххх if you open a message, go out from it and then return. The same issue is present here. During one moth I had several reloads. In general the phone is quite stable and long lasting for its range. It has a different screen with acceptable resolution for convenient use.
The build is good, while the price is low for Android solutions (€200). HTC Wildfire looks like a rival, but it loses out on price, which is 40%-50% higher. At the same time Wildfire has Sense, but its screen has lower resolution. Cameras are roughly similar. Samsung models (Galaxy 550/580) have inferior cameras, screen resolutions, but do not cost less. Even Gigabyte fetches more, which is strange. All in all Motorola has a good solution for those who need an Android smartphone at the lowest price, but with good features. I like the model as it is easy to use, so that many people will be more than happy to have it. Excellent value for money.
Capacitive technology with multitouch support allows for swift operation without delays, which is especially visible when working with photos.
A 3.2″ screen offers the resolution of 320х480 (Galaxy 550 features only QVGA) and up to 262000 colors (TFT). In the sun it fades away, but the text is still readable. The picture quality is high if to compare with rival models due to its resolution. This is a huge advantage. The screen fits up to 12 lines and several service lines.
Design, dimensions and controls
A traditional black candybar features a front plastic element, which gets soiled easily. The back and both sides are velvet like, so the phone is comfortable to hold in hands. Dimensions are 114.9 x 56.8 x 12.6 mm (4.52″ x 2.23″ x 0.49″), and it weighs 117 g (4.12 oz). The model fits all hands well and is easy to carry in a pocket.
The top hosts a 3.5 mm jack and the switch on/off button. The left side has a capped microUSB jack. The right side is for a paired volume rocker and a camera button.
It is nice to see that hardware call and end buttons are there coupled with a trackball in the centre, which also supports pressings. Controls are excellent for an inexpensive phone. Sensor keys are typical of Motorola
The segment of entry level Android smartphones was nonexistent until recently. HTC Wildfire became the first model offered and Motorola Quench is its direct rival. Other competing handsets are Samsung Galaxy 550/580, but Motorola has a better screen with higher resolution, which is the strongest point of Quench.
In the segment of accessible Android phones low resolution screens are traditionally used, but Quench is not weak in the area. This highly attractive solution can be easily recommended as the first Android phone. Away from Android world this model looks eye-catching as well and can be used as an inexpensive multi-purpose smartphone. Classical design goes hand in hand with excellent value for money. It suits customers who choose their models carefully and are ready to use the phone for a long time without looking at new gadgets. We are unlikely to get an update to 2.2 and above, but some people do not need them.
Text input is via QWERTY by default irrespective of the screen orientation. If you are a big fan of semiQWERTY it is here as well. During the input you only have to browse the screen to the side to activate another keypad type. You need just one touch to change languages, which is convenient
you can update separate RSSs or all of them together
