Motorola Gleam Review

by VISHAL GAIKAR - on Feb 10th 2012 - 5 Comments

Like pretty much every phone on the market today, the Motorola Gleam has an antecedent.  In this case the well known and extremely popular Razr.  The competitively priced Gleam  resembles the Razr handset in details large and small, from its clam shell design to its keypad, which, is a flexible plastics rather than aluminum found on the Razr. Although definitely designed for the budget conscious, the Gleam looks expensive.

The design is attractive with an appealingly glossy finish and and Led lights which pulse when the phone is opened or shut. Like most such shiny exteriors however, it does have a tendency to pick up fingerprints.

Lets Talk Specifics

Texting is easy on the Motorola Gleam because the large buttons on the keypad have enough play to allow your fingers to glide easily over them. The 2.4 inch display, while somewhat small, is representative of comparably priced phones. The Motorola Gleam is not a true smart phone, and truth be told,  is rather low tech, not having 3g or WiFi connectivity, let alone a lot of fancy apps. In fact there is very little technological advancement over the Razr.

On the  plus side, less technological sophistication means the Gleam is easier to use than many phones, and is also definitely less of a power hog,in fact the Gleam boasts a longer battery life than any true smartphones. And there are times, particularly when you need a phone to be just a phone, when longer battery life is worth more to a user than the latest cool app.

Some Pros, Some Cons..

The Motorola Gleam 2 megapixel camera is probably the rock bottom of what one can expect in camera phones these days, taking only fair quality stills and rather poor quality video. Also the Motorola Gleam is short on internal storage space, having only 5 MB available. However the Gleam does  have a microSD slot that allows for additional storage. The sound quality of  live FM radio from the FM receiver and of music on the Gleam mp3 player are bot fairly good, but probably better if you have your own pair of headphones to the fit the standard 3.5mm jack.

You normally get what you pay for, and if you are a feature conscious buyer for whom money is no object, the Gleam is not for you. However if you are on a budget, or even  if you just don’t care all that much about owning a phone that has all the latest gewgaws, the Gleam is a good choice. Although doing without 3G or WiFi connectivity is  somewhat something many phone users might miss, the basic functionality  and user friendly interface of the Gleam as well as its sharp, attractive appearance make it a good value for the money. There are plenty of deals on the Motorola Gleam that you can find around the internet.
