Motorola MOTOLUXE Preview

 

Motorola has been pushing the high-end in Android phones for a while now, coaxing early-adopters out of their shells with LTE marvels like the DROID RAZR and the DROID 4, but the MOTOLUXE shows it hasn't forgotten the entry-level market. Solid and...

Still, for pre-pay customers or those wanting an affordable SIM-free device, there’s a lot to like about the MOTOLUXE. The screen offers a solid compromise over size and usability, and the build construction – though not a true “rugged” phone – is high...

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...

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

We've established that the Motorola Motoluxe is no real fashion accessory.

Motorola Motoluxe review

 

The Motorola Motoluxe is an entry-level device, despite Motorola positioning the handset as a fashionista accessory. As such, it lacks the high-end features and specs you'll find on many handsets, but in return it won't cost you an arm and a leg to buy.

Battery life, 4-inch display is generous at this price, compact

Poor camera performance, Motorola's tinkering could be more flexible, a little underpowered

If you're on a budget, but want to look like you aren't, then the Motoluxe with it's larger-than-average screen will likely tempt you. The camera isn't great, which is annoying, but good battery life and a likeable design mean it's worthy of...

Motorola Motoluxe review: Hands-on

 

The Android Gingerbread-powered Motorola Motoluxe smartphone is the latest mid-range handset to join the party, but does it bring anything new to the table?

Mid-range smartphones can vary greatly from cheapo budget handsets to phones that are only a few steps down from being top-tier phones.

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 review

 

Despite harbouring allusions of grandeur, the Motorola Motoluxe struggles to live up to its name. On the outside it's appealing enough, but the user experience is less than stellar and there are better phones out there for less money.

Attractive design ; Large screen

Weak hardware ; No Android Ice Cream Sandwich ; Camera is poor

In many respects, the Motoluxe is quite a confused product. The appealing aesthetics and 8-megapixel camera hint at top-level aspirations, but the 800MHz processor and lack of Android 4.0 bring Motorola's latest blower down to earth with a bump.

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: In Depth

 

The Motorola MOTOLUXE marries style and affordability with its 4-inch WVGA screen and £230 price tag.

Large, sharp screen ; Great build quality ; Handy widgets

Convoluted camera UI ; Terrible flash ; Laggy performance

What you end up with in the Motorola MOTOLUXE therefore is a well-built smartphone for the masses. It doesn’t have the power or speed that higher-end devices have and the camera UI is a bit of a disaster, but when looking at the direct competition -...

Product Specifications

The crystal-clear 4-inch touchscreen display showcases all of your content, from photos and videos to e-mail and social media. Hit your next event with style, confidence and a phone that can handle your social calendar.
