Motorola DEXT review

The DEXT is Motorola's first foray into Android territory. Does it work? We review the handset to find out.

More and more mobile players are cottoning on to the fact that losing phones these days is a big deal. After all, these devices are increasingly linked to our individual and corporate identities and house more sensitive information than ever before.

Thankfully, then, Motorola's BLUR online service acts as a central console for you to control your device. Whether that's deleting everything and starting again just because you want to, or lost your handset and had to get a new one, or because someone stole it, it's a very useful tool indeed.

When it comes to multimedia, the DEXT doesn't disappoint. Snaps taken with its five megapixel camera with auto focus are good quality. In some instances, colours in photos appear even more vibrant than they do in real life, which could be either advantageous or a problem depending on your view point.

The placing of the camera lens is problematic, however, and we kept accidentally putting our left-hand little finger over it each time we tried to line up a shot.

In our first look review, we noted that the soft camera button that appears in the top right of the screen required a bit of user adjustment to get used to. After just a few pictures, we soon became accustomed to using it and fell into a pattern of using it intermittently with the hard camera button.
