Motorola Photon 4G review

 

The Motorola Photon 4G can dock to a monitor and run a full desktop Firefox 4 browser in addition to the Android apps - an intriguing step from a smartphone to a post-PC device.

Despite its fairly pedestrian hardware design, the Photon 4G should appeal to anyone looking for an Android smartphone that stands a good chance of being allowed access to the corporate network - but you do need to be something of a propeller head to...

Motorola's Photon 4G: The best Android smartphone yet

 

Despite its fairly pedestrian hardware design, the Photon 4G should appeal to anyone looking for an Android smartphone that stands a good chance of being allowed access to the corporate network. The 4G WiMax capability isn't worth spending money on,...

Review: Motorola Photon 4G

 

A photon moves at the speed of light, shines brightly and has a resting mass of zero. That said, it's a damn good name for...

Brawny phone on a fast network is great for data-gobbling apps. Ships with latest version of Android (Gingerbread 2.3.4). Kickstand for movies and physical shutter button for 8-megapixel camera are nice touches. Fast, fast, fast

Sucks battery like a Hoover. Annoying UI is annoying. Optional 0 “Webtop” dock (shown in the photo at top) is a waste of your hard-earned cash

Motorola Photon 4G (Sprint)

 

The Photon connects to Sprint's 3G CDMA and 4G WiMAX networks, as well as to Wi-Fi and to HSPA 14.4 high-speed networks worldwide. The phone comes with a SIM card that can roam on foreign networks at high rates, but as with all Sprint world phones, its...

Optional desktop dock transforms the phone into a nettop. 4G-compatible. World phone. High-res screen. Top-notch music and video players

No laptop dock

Our latest Editors' Choice touch-screen smartphone for Sprint, the Motorola Photon 4G is powerful, fast, feature-packed, and, in a pinch, it can double as a nettop PC.

Motorola Photon 4G vs. HTC EVO 3D

 

For as long as the modern smartphone has been around HTC has been the go-to manufacturer when Sprint wanted a top-tier device. At first it was with Windows Mobile phones like the Touch Diamond and Touch Pro 2 and as the market shifted towards Android...

Motorola PHOTON 4G Review

 

Not too long ago Motorola was teetering on the brink of viability, but along came a little green robot and the company's fortunes have changed drastically. Sprint's situation isn't quite as bleak, but its hoping that their renewed partnership with...

Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE Review

 

The Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE is the first 4G LTE phone for Sprint to bring a slide out QWERTY keyboard to the carrier's growing 4G LTE network. The Photon Q 4G LTE is very similar to the Motorola Droid 4 on Verizon, but Motorola delivers a vastly...
