Motorola knocked it out of the park with the PHOTON 4G, the manufacturer's first WiMAX smartphone. With a 1 GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 CPU, 4.3-inch qHD display, 8-megapixel camera with 720p HD video capabilities, and Android 2.3, it comes out of the box ready to fight for the top smartphone spot. Battery life is decent with moderate use, and signal strength is impeccable in both 3G and 4G, making it a great Sprint phone if voice quality is priority.
