OK Motorola fans get your motor’s running for this one, as the team over at Motorola city are presenting their brand new Motorola Photon 4G on Sprint, which is designed within a rather different looking, sharp hexagonal casing.
The Motorola Photon is a powerful piece of kit and is effectively underpinned by the Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread system that operates gracefully on top of the 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor.
Visually pleasing, the Photon has over four inches of screen size, 4.3 in fact, of HD quality, WiMax speeds of 4G, DLNA, Wi-Fi, HD video capability and recording, plus loads more on offer.
Some might find the Photon’s design to be somewhat bulkier and larger than expected, but this Sprint enabled gadget is sure to please many. It stands at five inches in height, has just over two and a half inches of width, with a depth of just 0.5 inches.
Overall it looks pretty sturdy and quite ‘male’ in its design. Brilliant colours are displayed with ease on the display, although it might not be quite as clear as Apple’s iPhone display, but it is hard to scratch with its included surface resistance and coating to help reduce glaring light.
Move around gracefully via the touchscreen which is ultra speedy and themes can further be customised by using seven available designs. Those who are familiar with ‘pinch to zoom’ functionalities will be totally at home here too.
The gadget’s home screen holds intelligently placed menu items and short cuts and the integrated camera with flash can be used from the rear of the Photon.
A front facing cam is also a handy option as well as a standard Micro-USB port and 3.5mm jack for headsets. The gizmo also can cleverly be positioned to act as desk located clock and weather station when the kickstand is moved into position, saving any embarrassing or expensive accidents with this prized possession!
