Motorola Q review: Motorola Q

 

Editor's note: This review has been updated to include the results of our battery drain testing.

The Motorola Q9c offers a Windows Mobile 6 upgrade as well as GPS, Bluetooth, and EV-DO support. The smartphone also has a 1.3-megapixel camera; decent call quality; and solid messaging capabilities.

The extended battery adds an awkward and bulky bump to the back of the smartphone, and the keyboard is a bit stiff. The speakerphone produced some feedback, and performance can sometimes be sluggish.

Some design quirks aside, the Motorola Q9c for Sprint is a worthy upgrade to the original Q, adding GPS and more stable performance, among other things.

Motorola Q Smart Phone

 

Like the Razr before it, the Motorola Q clearly aims to make a fashion--and technophile--statement. Slim and stylish, this silver-hued PDA/phone is just 11.5mm thick--thinner than the Razr, and significantly more compact than competing smart phones...

Impressive slimline design Inexpensive for a PDA/phone

Doesn't include Office apps Navigation controls are hard to use

If you need a slimline, large-screened companion at a comparatively low price, the Q deserves consideration. But if looks and size aren't paramount, it may be worth the extra bucks to step up to another device, and gain more functionality

Motorola Q

 

Unfortunately, wireless carriers charge an arm and a leg for plans that help connect smart devices to the Net. Sprint has the kindest rates, at $15 per month, but Cingular and Verizon charge more than $40 a month on top of your voice plan for many...

Very thin. Excellent one-handed use. Great voice quality. Stereo music over Bluetooth

A bit buggy. Multitasking can cause music to stutter. Expensive data plan ; Watch the Motorola Q Video Review

This excellent phone, e-mail, and Web surfing device will make Q a favorite letter for Verizon customers.

If you've had cellular phones since the days of those mammoth handheld sets, there's a good chance you had a Motorola. After all, Motorola introduced the world's first commercial cellular phone in 1983 and it's been perfecting the technology ever since...

Motorola Q Cell Phone Review

 

Another Smartphone to look at, but this one stays skinny..

The Q isn't a perfect device, but as of right now there is no such thing as a perfect device. The Q is definitely something to take a look at; it has some great features including EV-DO, a QWERTY keyboard, and a very sleek, thin design. Sending...

Motorola Q Black

 

Motorola launched their Q smartphone amidst a flurry of hype proclaiming it the world's thinnest, lightest, and most stylish handset to feature a full QWERTY keyboard. Still a hair's-breadth skinnier than the new Samsung Blackjack, the Q is amongst the...

Motorola Q Cell Phone

 

The Q falls between two worlds; it lacks the more sophisticated software of the Pocket PC based devices, and it lacks the simplicity of phones designed more towards voice use. As such, those who need their business information (such as scheduling and...

Review: Motorola Q - A RAZR-Thin Communicator

 

The front of the Q holds the 320 x 240 pixel, 65,000 color TFT screen, which is nice and bright, although it gets easily smudged during phone use. Below that is a simple button layout that will be familiar to anyone who's used a cell phone before

With its slimmed down design and its impressive feature list, the Q is a beautifully made smartphone for people who want power, convenience, and style. The worse thing about it is that it makes the competitors look awfully bulky
