If you look for the mid-range Android smartphone with the good-looking appearance, then you'll definitely need to check out the Motorola Motoluxe. The smartphone was initially unveiled in CES 2012 and it attained a great first impression from the audiences specifically for its engaging design, big screen and good construction.
At the first look, Motorola Motoluxe comes with the standard touchscreen bar style with the soft metallic elements and also soft touch finish. This device measures 117.7 mm in height, 60.5 mm in width, 9.9 mm in depth and about 123.6 grams in body-weight. Having this sizing, the device is obviously sleeker and lighter as compared to the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx and it has the almost same size of Samsung Galaxy Ace 2. As one of the phone’s positive aspect, you'll get the big 4 inches TFT capacitive touchscreen with 854x480 pixels of resolution and the reasonable 254 ppi of pixel density. Beneath the display, there are actually four standard touch-sensitive controls which comprise of Menu, Home, Back and Search keys.
As the performance booster, this phone has been packed with the single-core 800 Mhz Qualcomm processor along with the 512 MB of RAM and 1 GB of ROM (microSD and microSDHC support). For playing 3D games, the phone has been added with Adreno 200 GPU. For the operating system and user interface, the phone has been pre-loaded with the Android 2.3.7 (gingerbread) combined with the custom Moto Switch UI. The standard battery of lithium-ion 1400 mAh will provide the talk-time of up to 6.5 hours (2G)/4.5 hours (3G) and standby time of up to 450 hours (2G)/400 hours (3G). Unfortunately, this battery life is below the average of other smartphone in the market.
When it comes to camera specifications, this smartphone sports the 8 megapixels camera with auto focus, single-LED flash, exposure control, white balance, geo-tagging, scenes and effects. The device will also support for video calling with its 0.3 MP secondary and video recording with the VGA quality (640x480p). There's also the dedicated camera shutter for quick capturing need.
To gain access to the internet, the phone works with GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, HSDPA (7.2 Mbps) and HSUPA (5.76 Mbps). The default web browser supports for HTML web browsing and Adobe flash for a better viewing of web-pages. There will be also the built-in online support including YouTube and Picasa apps. The device also comes with the microUSB 2.0, Bluetooth 3.0, 3.5 mm audio jack, DLNA along with Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n.
The price level of Motorola MOTOLUXE is about $380 with no carrier’s contract. The key benefits of this gadget will be the solid construction, sleek design, large display and reasonable camera specs. Then again, the device makes use of the low screen resolution and it doesn't come equipped with the most recent Android OS.
