gsm arena have to put his reviews about this phone also., otherwise we have to move to other websites such as www.mouthshut.com which is very very useful
this is my very first Motorola ever. I only own it 1 day and still finding a little my way. first impression is that the build quality is good, the operating system in Androit, so that is OK too. does anyone know if Motorala has website or software ( as SE and Nokia ) where you can download applications, updates...... if yes, please let me know the web address of it
Is this phone is available in kolkata . Which one is better motorola xt5 or lg optimus one . pls reply . Is battery back up is good .
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.
Motorola pays a lot of attention to Android and aspires to be the top dog in this segment. The point is that you need to offer not only flagship solutions like Milestone/Droid or Droid2, but provide mass solutions as well. It is a traditional problem for Motorola and the company has no time for development here given low sales and weak interest from carriers in the segment. As always the issue is solved through ODM, when a partner gives hardware, while Motorola adds design and all internal features at its own discretion.
Quench was developed with the help of Foxconn, which is also responsible for Gigabyte Gsmart Z1305, These models are similar, but I liked Motorola more.
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.
It is nice on the outside, uses good materials and boasts a superior screen to its similarly priced rivals

I heard from Reliance Digital,Ambi mall, Gurgaon that it is going to release in this month. Is it right?

fabricio, 01 Dec 2010yes please help us about the touchscreen.... is it multitouch?it is similar not same as multiouch , they could have made a better touchscreen than this one but it's still better as motorola uses gorilla glass for the screns which equivalent to a stone, if you have used moto L7 you will know what i am talking about. it has a pretty ok pinch to zoom capacity like use your two fingers to zoom in not any side/volume key like other phones in market.one more thing about this phone is it has got 7 home screens and slide touch to swith between screens it worth a touch experience i must say, the price is suppose to come down to somewhere between 13k to 14.5k so wait on that till feb 2011.please wait fo further updates, I will keep updating you as an when I have time, thanks.
