Motorola Clutch i465 review: Motorola Clutch i465

 

Editors' note: Nextel now offers the Clutch for $39.99 with service. It is similar to the Boost Mobile model, except that it offers a few unique Nextel features.

The Motorola Clutch has a compact design with a comfortable keyboard. Call quality is excellent.

The Motorola Clutch has a low-resolution display and a clunky interface. It does not support instant messaging.

Boost Mobile scores with its first messaging phone. The Motorola Clutch offers good performance and an easy-to-use design.

Video Tour: Motorola i465 Clutch

 

Motorola kicks out a low-cost texter for Boost Mobile. The i465 Clutch has a QWERTY keyboard, Bluetooth, a camera and decent looks to boot. It is hampered only by flimsy software.

Affordable Cell Phone

 

Late last year, I purchased the Motorola Clutch i465 Cell Phone as part of the Boost Mobile phone plan, which is Pay-As-You-Go. The price was $79.99 from Best Buy. So far, I have to say that it was the best choice I had ever made. I think that this is...

The phone is very affordable, simple, and easy to use. Has great text messaging features

The photo quality: not great. The buttons: are challenging to use
