Editors Didn't Like

  • Small, low-resolution touchscreen only for basic uses; some apps aren't written to run on landscape screens; below-average photo quality
  • Low resolution screen. Sluggish. Poor reception. Many Android Market apps are unavailable. Backtrack is useless
  • The display on the Charm is not as vibrant as most other Android phones, and the small screen real estate really makes MotoBlur feel more cluttered than ever. We also think the photo quality is not that good
  • Low 320 x 240-pixel resolution, Motoblur runs a bit slow, Some popular apps don't run or look weird, Runs a little hot
  • DISPLAY DISPLAY DISPLAY it’s that bad. Freezes up occasionally
