There's Better Phones Out There!

Posted on: May 27th, 2010 by Anna Mainelli

The good: Keyboard is nice, text messaging is decent, good web browser, lots of featuresThe bad: kinda bulky, memory is not the best, not easy to work with, takes a while to processSummary: This phone is good for those of you who like multimedia phones and love a lot of features. It has mail, an excellent web browser, shortcuts, lots of menu styles, and it has great potential to be an excellent smartphone. But if you're a text message guru, be sure you delete messages often. I text a lot, and several times a reminder popped up telling me my memory was almost full because of text messages (it wasn't even that many messages) and it took 45 minutes to delete all of them. Overall, there are better smartphones out there, but this is not a bad choice.

Spoiled by my Blackberry

Posted on: April 13th, 2008 by K Stringfield

The good: Keyboard works for me; screen is clear and easy to read (when it's lit); size is convenient; seems pretty tough; recharges quicklyThe bad: software lacks a lot; microphone is all but useless for voice dialing; back-light time-out optionsSummary: I can't quite remember now why I didn't replace my stolen Blackberry with another one, but the Q seemed a good idea at the time. Honestly, it's very serviceable, very good-looking, fits nicely into my hands, pocket, side of purse and I've found the keyboard easy to use. initial synchronization with my Outlook contacts was quick and straightforward. Initial setup of Bluetooth was difficult due to poor instructions on finding the "Discover Me" mode on the Q. Although microphone is adequate for speakerphone purposes, it is totally inadequate for voice dialing and I'm still trying to find out if I can use some sort of voice tag for each contact to mitigate that. So far, no luck. Up until now, Blackberry was the only cell phone/PDA I had used and if something happens to this one, I'll probably go back. Seems sturdy enough. I've dropped it once or twice without ill effect and carry it around in my purse without a cover. also, there needs to be a longer-time choice between "never" and "60 seconds" for back-light time-out. Finally, Microsoft needs to take some basic lessons from RIM as to PDA software.

Not too bad...

Posted on: August 10th, 2007 by Brittany Panus

The good: looks nice and slim fast internetThe bad: kinda hard to use...and something that is REALLY annoying is that if u get a text the ringer keeps playing until its over...even when the text message has already been read it will keep ringing until the song is over...when in meetings or public places it gets a little old and we can't figure out how too stop it...Summary: More of a business phone,not recommended for teens...go with a different phone and there isn't the best battery life either

Motorola Q is a great business phone!

Posted on: April 21st, 2007 by gerald davis

The good: Thin, sexy, large screen, very similar to my blackberry in button layout, usb-mini sync/charge port, voice recognition is good, speaker is good (callers can hear me an i can hear them.) Holds 2gb mini-sd. Battery lasts with the righ preparation of powermanagementThe bad: adding new contact from unknown number, cant press letter to go to similar lettered entries if just adding to existing contact, silver buttin is not a joystick, though that would be nice, No MMS is available yet.Summary: This phone is more like a business extension device then a phone. It has web, mobile outlook which is easily synced with MS.Exchange (very handy for smb users and entrepreneurs). The device is a good looking device, balances well in the hand for great one-handed action (texting, short email replies, etc ...) the only things that its missing is wireless (802.11) and MMS capabilities, although that might be a consequence of the providers not enabling the MMS feature. Beyond that its a very business friendly device and well recommended. There are a few tips to extend the battery ( turn beaming off, set displays to turn down after 10 sec, and dim the screen with utility caled candlelight, and youll love your phone battery life like me.

Motorola Q

Posted on: February 24th, 2007 by Anonymous

The good: Easyn to hold with the rubber coatingThe bad: Unbelieveably hard to use.Summary: Would not sync. Buttons are too close together. Navigating around the phone was difficult. Speaker mode was very tinny. Provided case was a joke. I hated this thing so bad that after a week I took it back for credit. Thank goodness for the two week grace period. I have always had Motorola phones and loved everyone until this one. Doing anything with it was a chore!Battery life was terrible. If you feel you must buy one of these then opt for the extended battery. Original battery would not get me through a work day if I used it very much. Motorola should be ashamed of battery performance with this unit.

Emails don't stay on device until you delete them

Posted on: December 10th, 2006 by Scott Nelson

The good: The phone has great features and is generally pretty goodThe bad: The emails you download using a POP3 service only stay on the device until you delete them off the server. Once your POP3 mail client removes the message from your mail server, the device seems to think it should also delete them from itself. This is the MOST ANNOYING "feature" of the thing. In my opinion, it should keep messages until you TELL IT to delete them.Summary: The phone sometimes reboots itself for no apparent reason, but otherwise it's a pretty capable device.

This is a great device!

Posted on: August 17th, 2006 by Mary Jane Rynd

The good: The size, styling and weight are terrific. The screen is clear and vibrant, and the voice quality is the best I've ever had. I find the navigation fairly intuitive.The bad: The battery takes a long time to charge, and the life is nowhere near that of BlackBerry (which spoiled me), even with the "large" battery. It has required me to change my habits and charge up much more frequently. I purchased an additional charger to keep in my suitcase so I won't ever forget it.Summary: I would highly recommend it. I didn't rate quality/durability since I've only had it for two weeks, but I will add that it has survived 2 three or four foot drops onto a hard surface.

Lags a little, but otherwise great!

Posted on: June 6th, 2006 by Maxwell Potts

The good: I am still in the trial and error stages of learning the new Motorola Q, but WOW here is what I think so far. Features that have impressed me most are the voice and sound quality, using voice commands with the Bluetooth headset, photo quality, vibrant screen, MMS, and DUN with PDANET. The bad: I don't feel like the scroll wheel is sturdy enough. Seems to lag and could really use some better shortcuts. For example, it takes three steps just to get to the InBox... Summary: Even with a few small complaints, I am never expecting to find perfection in my cellular phone. For the few short hours I have been playing, I am impressed and believe this is going to end up being very popular!

Getting used to the Q

Posted on: June 6th, 2006 by Joseph Thompson

The good: This phone has it all. I love having access to my calendar, contacts, e-mail etc. (The best part was it took like three minutes to upload using wireless sync. Sound quality is great, on and off the speakerphone. The bad: When putting the battery case on my new Q I was disappointed by the "cheap" feel of the cover. I was also bothered by the amount of time it took the phone to boot up. I understand this is a with a lot going on inside of it, but at least show me something. Let me know it's atleast attempting to come on! Summary: Besides the cheap feel of the phone, I have been impressed with the features and the programs. As long as the phone doesn't fall apart or the scrool wheel fall off, I would recommend giving the Q a shot!
