Motorola Motoluxe review

 

There's more to Android than high-end devices, as we take a look at Motorola's entry-level MotoluxeOn the European side of the Android world, Motorola hasn't really made the same im...

The rear 8MP camera is pleasantly surprising though. It isn’t in the same league as HTC’s 8MP cameras on the One series, but for a budget orientated device it’s not bad at all. Low light performance isn’t too hot, but in well lit conditions it produces...

Motorola Motoluxe review

 

Poor hardware meets dull design in this middling Android 2.3 smartphone

Wi-Fi hotspot capable ; DNLA streaming ; Rubber chassis ; 4-inch screen

Poor camera ; 800MHz processor ; Boring design ; Lags during navigation ; Only 1GB internal memory

Motorola says that it's OK to go ahead and stare. No, really. When it comes to the Motorola Motoluxe, it positively embraces bad manners, because, according to Motorola, this handset is going to blow you aesthetics lovers away.

Motorola Motoluxe review

 

The received wisdom in some Android-loving circles is that iPhones are for those concerned more with style than substance. The response from fans of Apple's smartphone would be that Android handsets are poorly made substitutes for those who cannot...

Place the Motorola Motoluxe next to a Samsung Galaxy S3 or an iPhone 4S and it shapes up poorly. It packs middling specs and fair-to-middling performance into a stylish frame. But if you want a decent Android smartphone at a reasonable price, you could...

Motorola Motoluxe

 

With a 4in screen and 8MP camera this is a surprisingly capable budget Android smartphone.

Smart design and good build quality ; Large and high-res screen for its price ; 8MP camera with dedicated button

Too sluggish in general use ; Camera not as good as you'd hope ; Interface is fine but nothing special

It's great to see a removable battery cover on the back, but it is a little bit too removable. On a couple of occasions we knocked the phone from a coffee table and sofa onto the carpet and the panel pinged off. Clearly one shouldn't drop a phone if...

Motorola MotoLuxe review

 

Motorola takes a middle line between the tough DEFY and the sleek RAZR

A handset like the MotoLuxe will live or die based on its price. Given the early indications on this we can see it doing quite well, as it feels great in the hand and though not the fastest handset, feel goes a long way at lower prices.

Motorola MOTOLUXE Review: In Depth

 

Stylish, slim, 8-megapixel camera, Android 2.3 Gingerbread and a 4-inch WVGA screen, the Motorola MOTOLUXE looks like a corker when you consider the £230 price tag. Marketed at the cost-conscious…

Large, sharp screen ; Great build quality ; Handy widgets

Convoluted camera UI ; Terrible flash ; Laggy performance

Motorola Motoluxe

 

Motorola aims to crack the budget market with its latest Android phone, but is the 4in screen enough to brush aside strong competition?

A reasonable budget handset, but don’t expect its ageing hardware to stand up to Android’s toughest tests

Motorola Motoluxe review

 

We review the Motorola Motoluxe, a low-end, compact smartphone with Android 2.3.7

Compact, Won't break the bank, Some nice interface touches

Can feel slow at times

The Motorola Motoluxe is relatively capable at its price point we think you would be better off waiting to see what the forthcoming budget devices with Ice Cream Sandwich are like

Motorola Motoluxe Android smartphone

 

Review Don't be confused by the name: it may be seem classy and good-looking but this is a mid-range handset, not a deluxe one. It's also quite distinctive, which is good at a time when Android handsets are numerous and often me-too copies or...

This is a likeable phone with decent screen, a camera that is higher quality than the price would suggest and has neat styling to boot. It would be better if it came with the latest Android software, though this may follow. And a faster processor would...
