The MOTO Q 9h global may seem larger than some phones, but it actually fits quite nicely in one’s hand and pocket during daily use. Click on the thumbnail to see it next to the two battery sizes available. The larger battery requires a backplate with a “bump” to accommodate, but it’s worth it.
The QWERTY keyboard has nice solid buttons that curve out. This makes it easy for men to use – I always hear men complain about various keypads what with some keys being too squishy, to small, to fragile and so on. I have nails, so even small keys are not too difficult for me, but the MOTO Q is sturdy and feels just right.
I and my callers are happy with the voice quality of this phone – that includes using the speakerphone and Bluetooth devices.
The MOTO Q 9h global comes with Windows Mobile (r) 6, built-in GPS capabilities and Documents to Go (r) for document editing, seven dedicated shortcut keys which are easy to find, a 2.0-megapixel camera with flash (still and video). AND Opera Mobile browser as the default browser. Being a big fan of Opera in all it’s variations this makes me quite the happy camper. I’ve been told downloads can be up to 3.6 Mbps via ATT’s UMTS/HSDPA-based BroadbandConnect network.
The 3G-powered MOTO Q global is the first MOTO Q smart device sold in the U.S. with worldwide capabilities. That means making a phone call in 190+ countries and accessing e-mail and other data in 135+ countries.
And, of course, this phone uses the microSD card – something that seems to be a standard these days. One thing I like about the file manager on this phone is that it’s much more user friendly than other versions of other phones. Example: I can select multiple files and move, copy, delete, whatever. This feels much more like a small computer than a clumsy attempt at a computer.
