Recently I discovered that my current phone was starting to have issues that are serious deal breakers for me. The major one being that thecamera was no longer working properly and causing a full crash of my phone. Very frustrating. I like to take a look from time to time to see the new phones that are on the market to see if there is any new technology that I just have to have on my next phone purchase.
The main reason I moved back to Sprint a year ago was because I wanted to be on (at the time) the only 4G network. Plus the plans at Sprint are fantastic. The Motorola Photon 4G is the phone that I was investigating today.
The store had a very interesting set up that I had never seen for a phone. It included a docking station, keyboard, mouse and computer screen. No something you'd expect from a phone. This feature happens to be my favorite and just the kind of “new technology” I was talking about. It's called Webtop, when you plug the Motorola Photon into the docking station and connect the dock to a TV or computer screen it automatically launches a Firefox window on the screen. It gives you the ability to open multiply webpages, apps, check your email and still take phone calls. It's really cool. If you are one of those that does everything from your phone this is a must have feature because it allows you to have a large screen view of everything on your phone. The clerk showed me all the great stuff you could do with it.
The other thing I love about the Motorola Photon 4G is it's size. I love my big screens because I watch a crazy amount of videos on myphone. Not only did it have a big screen but it was thin and extremely light. Even holding onto it in the store where its tethered to the display I was very surprised at how light it was. So this feature is another major plus for me. Because when you are carrying a phone around with you everywhere you don't want it weighting your pants pocket down. This phone also has a kickstand on the back of it for all that video watching I do.
Of course the main reason I was even looking was because of my own phones camera not working properly. As you can see in the photo the Motorola Photon has an 8mp camera on the back of the phone that has a powerful flash and HD video recording capabilities. It also has a camera on the front for video calling. Check out the dork in the phone!
If you are looking for a new phone to upgrade to I highly suggest the Motorola Photon 4G. You'll love all the features that it has to offer. I could see business savvy professionals loving this phone a lot because of the Webtop feature that allows them to see everything on a big screen and editing docs all while making calls. Then just unplug and go and it's all right there on the phone. I see the future of all phones heading into that direction.
Grab the Motorola Photon 4G on the Sprint network. You'll save a TON of money being on the ONLY truly unlimited network and pay nearly $30 less a month for it.
