"Perks not worth aggravation of Motorola Photon Q 4G LTE"2.0 starson by spiderchik
Pros: Full keyboard, large screen, dropped in water and still works with otterbox case protector.
Cons: non removable battery cover, Software updates render phone useless, no SD card, keyboard key coating rubbed off in 3rd week, battery life goes way down after 1 month of use, heavy and large, runs on 3G, lte not available
Summary: Had i been aware of the lack of SD card, non removable battery cover and issues with the software updating, i would have forgone the full keyboard and went with a better functioning phone.In addition, the newest issue i'm experiencing is from the lack of SD card. I can't download all of the apps i want to use because there is no additional storage space for them.
Also, what is the point of having a 4G LTE phone when the LTE service is not available yet in my area. I almost can't wait until this phone dies so that i can be rid of it.
Software updates 2 of 3 times have rendered the phone so useless that i had to take it to a sprint store to have a tech fix the issue.
The keyboard keys started peeling and chipping off after only 3 weeks of usage..seems that if a phone's main feature is a full keyboard, more care would have been taken to see that the keys are durable.
