Top Motorola Phones You Might Have Missed Completely
Finding itself pitted against the likes of Apple, Samsung, Windows Phone and HTC in the mobile market space, Motorola often finds it hard to catch the attention of customers with its offerings. As a result, a lot of its nifty phones fail to get in the spotlight despite packing a punch. Let’s take a few of Motorola’s cell phones that you may have failed to notice because of being blinded by the bright shine of iPhones, Galaxies, Blackberries, etc.
#1 Defy XT
Motorola Defy XT is one phone that you probably haven’t heard about much. This is forgivable due to the ordinary performance capability, mediocre screen and camera, and standard storage and battery capacity. However, the device was apparently not designed for the power users, but users who aren’t too good at keeping their phone out of harm’s way. Defy XT’s strength lies in its rugged dust-free and water-resistant construction. The phone is a keeper for anyone who wants an affordable device with innate survival instincts.
#2 Droid Razr HD
Motorola’s Moto Razr was at one time the phone to beat, especially in the US market. The company may have been hoping to create a similar sensation with Droid Razr HD, though it couldn’t quite accomplish its aim. Nevertheless, the device was nothing short of impressive, with fast performance, luxurious design, a huge 4.7-inch 720p screen, and decent 4G speeds. However, its camera left plenty to be desired, producing images that were definitely nothing something to write home about. On the whole, Droid Razr HD was a good enough package.
#3 Electrify M
Motorola Electrify M may not be as powerful as the Samsung Galaxy S3, but it carries enough juice to give other mid-ranged phones a run for their money. Motorola has fitted a colorful screen on the Electrify M for your viewing pleasure, and the battery has enough capacity to get through the day with ease. The 8MP camera isn’t the strongest trait of this particular offering of Motorola, The picture quality improves slight in well-lit settings, but it still isn’t what you’d call impressive. All in all, the phone is a great option for Motorola loyalists, especially those who prefer compact devices over the likes of Samsung Galaxy 3.
#4 Moto X
Motorola may not have too many flagship phones to flaunt since Moto Razr, but with Moto X, it has made it known to its competitors that it’s still game. The phone is superbly compact, has an excellent battery life, is loaded with a set of nifty voice command capabilities, and comes with a powerful processor and sufficient RAM. Its camera also adds to its value, with the picture quality being well above average. The only two noticeable shortcomings are its non-expandable storage and a screen that lacks both size and sharpness. Are these two shortcomings a deal-breaker? Hardly.
#5 Moto G
Moto G is a low-price variant of Moto X, with Motorola having to make a compromise on performance, connectivity, body, and a few other features in order to fit it into the budget category, which is does so quite nicely. It was among the first devices to receive the Android 4.2.2 update, thus giving is a significant edge over some of the other Android devices. Moto G is compact, has got decent power under the hood, comes with a battery that has an impressive stamina, and has a luxurious look. The limited storage capability, lack of 4G support, and a below-par camera are testament to the phone’s budget status.
Motorola may not be the first name that generally pops into one’s mind when it comes to smartphones, but the company hasn’t given up on trying to makes it own place in the market. Coming under the banner of Google, the company may find itself with enough resources and guidance to challenge even the likes of Samsung and LG.
