Motorola DEXT review

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

Video recording at 24fps is also on offer, which we found to be of average to good quality depending on filming conditions.

There's also a 3.5mm jack so you can use the headphones of your choice, in addition to micro-USB for charging. You'll also find onboard A-GPS, a digital compass and support for the major multimedia file formats (audio: AAC, AAC+, AAC+ Enhanced, AMR NB, MIDI, MP3, WAV and video: H.264, H.263, MPEG).

We found battery life to be neither abysmal nor anything to write home about (quoted figures are six hours of talk time and 13.5 days of standby).

How much mileage you'll get out of a full charge does depend on just how much you've got going on on the handset and what sort of user you are, but we'd carry around the charger or micro-USB cable just in case.

Verdict

We’re still big fans of the DEXT, despite its social networking and consumer-oriented focus. That said, in its present guise, it’s probably better suited to business users who only find themselves out of the office occasionally rather than full-blown road warriors or executives who need simple access to complex data and functions on the move.
