                            Few More Discussions about Motorola Quench XT5 XT502:

                            The screen does not look attractive and beautiful, but it is acceptable. But design wise it cant be said how Motorola Quench XT5 XT502 is, as different user will have different opinion on its look.

                            The screen resolution is not that high, but it is ok as low screen resolution results in longer battery life.

                            Motorola Quench XT5 XT502 will be really faster than what you can expect for its price.

                            But it has very small internet memory for you to use, that is you can hardly install 7 Android Applications on to the internal memory. If you don’t mind that, it will be fine as long as you can switch to external memory.

                            I love this phone! It's very easy to use, yet still looks impressive and stylish. One small problem though is I keep on running out of storage capacity when I install more than about 7 or so of the Android applications. No problem, we can install applications onto the memory card. Surely there must be a way.

                            All in all Motorola has a good solution for those who need an Android smartphone at the lowest price, but with good features. I like the model as it is easy to use, so that many people will be more than happy to have it. Excellent value for money. Touch experience is awesome and Headset and loudspeaker sound is good.
