Satisfying Review of Motorola Photon 4G Sprint

Till few months ago Motorola was swinging on the edge of viability, but with the partnership with Sprint, they are hoping to get back in some serious business. Motorola Photon 4G is the most impressive smartphone of the Motorola-Sprint series. Motorola-Photon-4G It comes with a futuristic, cool design, excellent accessories, active voice cancellation, and healthy mix of business and entertainment features. Motorola 4G is the ultimate powerhouse of the phone. It comes with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a dual-core 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, a 4.3 inch qHD display, 8 MP camera and much more.

Motorola Photon 4G is an attractive and sleek device. At first glance, what makes it special is the Android 2.3 Gingerbread interface with the vibrant 4.3’’ touch screen. Coming to its Design, it is unique. Motorola has chopped off its corners, creating some what octagon look. Its angular looks give an expression of being futuristic. It feels solid in the hand, with a rubbery back which helps in good grip. Photon only weighs 5.57 ounces which is remarkable for such a bulky looking phone (I mean its big screen).

The Photon has a bunch of business features including Exchange support, enterprise security, and 3LM Ready for Business software. It is indeed a perfect phone for business lot.
Motorola Photon 4g includes a Kickstand and a sensor that launches Widget Clock app. The kickstand is very useful part of the design. It comes in handy for most of the time. Unfortunately, microUSB port is on the opposite side of kickstand, which makes it impossible to plug-in when the kickstand is being used.

Of all the Motorola smartphones released this year, the Photon is best of the series. The design is unique and the Tegra 2 processor paired with Sprint’s 4G network is hard to beat. But it has some disadvantages to like bluish tint to the display and the uneven camera. Overall the Motorola 4G is a very good phone depending on what you are looking for. I found the experience to be pleasing but as I have said camera is what Motorola should work at.

I can’t wait to get my Photon 4G! There is so much to love about this phone. Mainly, it is global, has a dual-core processor, and 4G. I am a big movie streamer, so with all of these features, the Photon should have no problem keeping up with me. The app that I use to stream is the DISH Remote Access app. I love this app because it lets me stream movies and TV shows anywhere I am! Since the Photon is a global phone, I can go to any country and watch TV! As a customer and employee of DISH Network, I have been using the DISH Remote Access app for a long time on my previous phone, and I know that it is going to be great on the Photon once I get it!

The Motorola Photon is the next 4G device in the line up for Sprint's network. The Gingerbread phone sports a 4.3 qHD touchscreen display along with a kickstand. The device seems rather similar to the Atrix, but it does seem to have it's own charm about it. The Motorola Photon sports a dual-core Tegra 2 chip with WiMAX, CDMA, and GSM capabilities. The Android device can reach up to ten hours of talk time and is powered by a 1700mAh battery. To keep your Motorola Photon protected, why not it with some of our Motorola Photon Accessories?
