4.0 out of 5 stars Motorola Dext 28 July 2010
I own this phone although I didnt buy it from amazon. It does compete well with more expensive phones. I have played with the htc desire that a friend of mine owns and also uses the android os there is little to chose between them. I like the the fact there is a physical keyboard its much more comfortable to navigate with and txt etc.
I have no complaints about the phone for the money it is a very competitive phone the only gripe I have is over battery life and no its not just my phone either. With no use what so ever the battery will last but with only moderate use and by moderate i mean a couple of 10 min calls around 30 average txts and maybe checking your emails along with the applications you may have on the phone the battery wont last a day. Mine needs charging every night without fail or its dead. which is not ideal. On the plus though the android os is the best I have come across.

4.0 out of 5 stars High Value Smartphone 31 May 2010
By martinblank VINE VOICE
In the big hype driven world of the mobile phone, anyone could be forgiven for a lot of confusion. My wife's lovely HTC Desire isn't more than a split of a split second faster then the Dext loading sites or web browsing. But, yes, of course, the Desire is more polished, feels more expensive, has a more detailed and bigger screen, and is transparently more with it than this six month old Motorola. But the Dext is better value to buy outright (if you exercise common sense) and delivers most of the Desire's ability at about a third of the retail price. The handset is solid and a bit chunky, but there's a very good physical keyboard which makes input (for me) still easier than fumbling in my big fingered way around a virtual equivalent (the Dext has one of those too). Reasons not to go with the Dext might be that Motorola treat this handset like an unwanted child, on contract the Milestone is a better phone and a better deal, and fit and finish could be that little bit more refined. The Milestone is expensive to buy. The Desire almost criminally so. With the Dext you get a handheld computer that's not hugely wanting compared with the premium smartphones, and if you pay attention before you buy, you'll get exceptional value too.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best! 22 Mar 2010
This is a fantastic phone that does everything. The main advantage is that it is an Android operating system so there are loads of applications to download and most of them are free, The touch screen is easy and a pleasure to use and also the fact that it has a full qwerty physical keyboard is a major bonus. If your into social networks then this has a fantastic MotorBlur software that merges them all into one easy screen. Multiple home screens and widgets so you can personalise. Fantastic battery life and just an amazing piece of kit.

1.0 out of 5 stars Battery life is poor 6 July 2011
I agree with the other 1* reviewer. When I first got it, it was great but then it started to get really slow and unresponsive. I have to charge it every day, even when it's on a battery saving mode, which I think is poor.
The touch pad is really unresponsive and really annoying. It randomly turns off. It's rubbish if you want to hang up on someone because you have to press the screen 10 times.
The positives would be the querty keyboard.. without this the phone would be dire.

The applications don't work very well and you can't find them all.

The phone itself is no fun at all.

For someone who has been dead against iphones, I am actually considering getting one after this make. It has really put me off android.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish! 3 July 2011
Ive had this phone for nearly 18 months now, and I have been wanted to get rid of it for about 12 months!
When I first brought it I though it was brilliant and far better then my partners Nokia, but within months that all changed.
As the phone gets older it becomes more unresponsive, to the point where it doesn't work some of time, or presses someone completely random.
Motorola refuse to upgrade the software on this so, i am still running on its original Android 1.6 platform, and this is crap. A lot of the new apps will not work with this phone like, for example, the '...with friends' series of apps.
When i first brought this phone, it was impossible to send or receive anything using the bluetooth function, and it was only when i downloaded an app that sending photos was possible, but unless you root the phone (quite dangerous as you could end up blocking the phone completely) you still cant bluetooth music.
The battery life is less that desirable as well, and quite often i have to charge it mid way through the day!

All in all, i would avoid this phone with a 10 foot barge pole, and seriously think about buying motorola's in general.
