Motorola Citrus (Verizon Wireless)

 

The Motorola Citrus has a simple design and a functional feature set that includes a file manager. Call quality is quite good.

The Motorola Citrus forces you to use Bing for search and maps. The Web browser experience isn't great, and typing can be tedious on the small display.

The Motorola Citrus is small and devoid of high-end features, but it works as a beginner Android phone.

Motorola Citrus (Verizon Wireless)

 

The Citrus includes Backtrack, Motorola's ill-conceived, rear-mounted trackpad that is difficult to use accurately and scrolls the screen by accident all the time as you hold the phone. The first thing I do when I get a phone with Backtrack is test to...

Clear voice quality. Good battery life

Screen resolution is too low for Android UI, and also limits Android Market app compatibility. Backtrack is useless. Stubborn on-screen QWERTY keypad. Lots of bugs

The Motorola Citrus is a poor Android device for Verizon subscribers; it's not nearly enough of a contender to warrant the modest savings at the retail counter.

"citrus phone is the WORST PHONE EVER"

 

Worst phone EVER. My land line phone worked better when I was 15, and I'm 45 now, GET RID OF THIS FORKING PHONE IT IT THE WORST CELL PHONE EVER INVENTED AND I AM INSULTED THAT MY INSURANCE COMPANY REPLACED MY VORTEX WITH A PIECE OF CRAP LIKE THIS.

NONE. The green light when there is a message, but if you can get the message because this phone is so forking slow and unresponsive, good the fork luck

Minus any stars and no upvotes: This is the worse forking phone I have EVER HAD!

Cons extended

I hate it.

It is to small.

Consumer review by:

"I absolutely HATED this phone!!!!"

 

I hated this phone because it was so slow I literally yelled at it! The reason I am getting a new one is because at one point I had to hold the phone at a certain angle to make it charge! And it "accidentally" fell in the toilet.

Nothing at all.

Everything.

"This phone is very disappointing."

 

battery life is okay.

When browsing the web it is sometimes pretty slow and the font is too small to see so when you increase it your constantly shifting back and forth to read/ see what your trying to view. It tends to spazz out and turn off or completly freeze up at the unlo

"Motorola CITRUS, ok phone"

 

Good Camera good screen back trackpad

Battery life, proximitity sensor goes off, shuts off, when not in use finds some way to turn itself off or runn out of power. Vibrates sometimes when not touched, and the most tedious part, speaker phone shutting off and turning on in the middle of calls.

I'm on my 3rd phone in 3 weeks. It starts out working fine then one day it just shuts down. When you press the power button to turn it back on, all that happens is that the Round White Motorola Logo flashes on the screen twice then goes off. I've...
