Motorola Charm (bronze, T-Mobile)

 

If you think all Android phones come with big beautiful touch screens, think again. The Motorola Charm is a decidedly different take on the Android smartphone, with a square touch-screen design like that of the Motorola Flipout, except that it doesn't...

The Motorola Charm is a slim and portable handheld with a roomy keyboard and decent call quality. It comes with Android 2.1, a full HTML browser with Flash Lite, Wi-Fi, 3G, and GPS

The display on the Charm is not as vibrant as most other Android phones, and the small screen real estate really makes MotoBlur feel more cluttered than ever. We also think the photo quality is not that good

If you can look past its design pitfalls, the Motorola Charm is an affordable and usable entry-level Android handheld. Android power users, on the other hand, may want to look elsewhere.

Motorola Charm

 

This affordable Android phone has a cute design and a good physical keyboard but it's lack of speed and low-res screen are turn-offs.

We think a lot of messaging fiends will appreciate the Motorola's Charm's unique design. It's nice to be able to fire off e-mails and texts without having to slide a keyboard down or rely on a touch keyboard. The $74.99 price is also attractive....

Motorola Charm (T-Mobile)

 

The Motorola Charm brings Android power to budget-minded buyers for a low up-front price: just $49.99 with a two-year contract and after rebates. It's an interesting, touch-enabled alternative to a BlackBerry Curve, and a more compact phone than many...

Slim and lightweight. MotoBlur is useful. Runs Android 2.1, complete with free voice navigation. Voice dialing over Bluetooth

Low resolution screen. Sluggish. Poor reception. Many Android Market apps are unavailable. Backtrack is useless

The Motorola Charm is a compact, socially alert Android phone that's let down by insufficient screen resolution and sluggish performance.

Without a doubt, there surely have been many people out there clamoring to see an Android smartphone that employs that typical BlackBerry look with its signature stationary portrait style QWERTY form factor. The yearnings of many have been heard by...

The Motorola Charm is the embodiment of the "smart-messaging phone." It runs Android, but make no mistake -- it's not what you would expect from your typical Android phone. It h...

We've talked about the good and the bad, but what's my final verdict on the Charm? That depends on what you need it for. Don't go into it thinking you'll take advantage of the thousands of apps on the Android Market, because the phone wasn't designed...

Motorola Charm Review - Android Phone Reviews by MobileTechReview

 

You know that square phone trend? It's not over yet: just take a look at the Motorola Charm. Motorola has been taking design leaps with their Android smartphones, and the Charm takes fewer risks than the positively unusual Motorola Backflip on AT&T....

Very good keyboard, lots of social networking, strong reception and voice. Both standard and extended batteries are included

Display is small and low quality, social networking overwhelms the tiny home screen

If you're looking for a very affordable and compact Android phone with a QWERTY keyboard, the Motorola has its charms. Despite our complaints about the display and MOTOBLUR overwhelming the small home screen, the Motorola Charm is a solid messaging...

Review: Motorola Charm

 

The Motorola Charm for T-Mobile is indeed a departure from Motorola's well-known Droid line. The biggest change is in the Charm's unique form factor which includes a landscape screen, front QWERTY keypad, and overall squarish design. If you consider...

The Motorola Charm packs a strong Android punch into a mini QWERTY slab shell. Will its charms sway you from noticing the low res screen?
