"Right on the mark for business users"4.0 starson by sdankert
Pros: Clear display, thin, good keyboard for typing
Cons: Delay when launching apps and USB headphone adaptor
Summary: I am writing this review based on two days of use. As a business user, my primary needs are real-time push of my corporate email to my smart-phone, great cell phone charracteristics, and ability to review MS Office docs in email attachments. For these things this phone is excellent. My last phone was a Treo 650 (Palm OS). After two years of use it had become very unstable (even after a hard reset back to original configuration). I often had to endure multiple auto restarts when I attempted to make a call or at times where I was receiving a lot of email pushes. Further, that phone was really bad with dropped calls (Verizon was my carrier). With my Moto Q I have experienced none of these issues. Signal strength is great (no dropped calls yet) and I haven't had a single auto restart. I waited for the AT&T model to come out so I could get Windows Mobile 6 (Verizon is ver 5). I miss my touch screen from my Palm and it does take longer to switch from one application to another on my Moto but these are minor trade-offs for the much improved timeliness of email pushes (I get them on my phone within seconds of seeing them in my laptop inbox) and the stability of the calls and phone itself.
As a last note, if I was going to use this as my primary portable music device I might reconsider...I don't like having to carry around the USB to headphone adaptor...of course if I was using this for music I could just buy bluetooth headphones.Updated
My opinion of this product continues to improve. This phone is a huge improvement over my old Treo 650. Battery life is astounding...I spent the holiday weekend at a home with poor signal strength...my 650 would die after less than a day. With my Moto Q9h I lasted more than 3 days! In addition, my email synch with my corporate server is blazingly fast...my emails hit my phone within 10 seconds of seeing them in my inbox. The keyboard is a dream, way easier to type on than the old 650's cramped keys. I would rate this phone a 9 if I were doing it today.
