    Motorola CHARM Review

    Well it's about time that we find someone brave enough to venture with something different in terms of form factor with Android – even more when landscape QWERTY handsets are abundant. The Motorola CHARM is actually a well-rounded device that refreshes the usual set of Android phones we're typically presented with. When it's priced at $79.99 on-contract, it makes for a decent offering when you factor in its rare portrait style QWERTY, inclusion of Android 2.1, and its quality construction. read more →

    • Fantastic QWERTY
    • Solid construction
    • Two batteries
    • QVGA display
    • Inferior producing camera
    • Orientation issues with certain apps

    Motorola Charm

    The Motorola Charm is an affordable entry-level Android 2.1 smartphone that should please users who are primarily texters.

    At S$499 without a contract, the Motorola Charm costs slightly more than competing Android 2.1 entry-level devices , but it's the only one with a physical keyboard (aside from the Flipout). Ultimately, what we have here are two near identical devices from Motorola, the Flipout and Charm. read more →

    • Relatively slim and portable
    • roomy keyboard
    • runs on Android 2.1
    • Wi-Fi, HSDPA and GPS connectivity
    • seamless wireless connection with a computer via Phone Portal.
    • Small, low-resolution touchscreen only for basic uses
    • some apps aren't written to run on landscape screens
    • below-average photo quality.

    Motorola Charm (T-Mobile) Review

    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. However, the Charm's low-res screen and sluggish processor can't handle everything Motoblur tries to do, let alone Android. read more →

    • Good physical keyboard
    • Runs Android 2.1
    • Includes two batteries in the box
    • Low 320 x 240-pixel resolution
    • Motoblur runs a bit slow
    • Some popular apps don't run or look weird
    • Runs a little hot

    • Good Built
    • Decent Touch screen
    • Connected Music Player
    • Good Bass and music quality
    • Comfortable QWERTY board

    • Orientation Issue with most apps
    • Skype app never works
    • Poor Battery Backup
    • Heating Issues over prolonged use
    • Very less memory for installing apps
