Motoluxe Review

Rating: ★★★½☆

Motoluxe is a midrange phone from Motorola. The phone measures 117.7 x 60.5 x 9.9mm and weighs 123.6g. It is a very pretty phone. It is slim and has metallic elements on its body. It has a solid and sturdy appeal with soft touch finish.

The Motoluxe has a large capacitive display that measures 4.0 inches. It has a display resolution of 480 x 854 pixels with a pixel density of 245ppi. This enables you to view crisp and clear images. However, it becomes difficult to view the display outdoors even if you set the brightness to its highest setting. Below the display, on the left hand side, you can find a large notification light. A blinking light is what you see whenever you receive an SMS or miss a call.

The Motoluxe fails miserably when it comes to performance. You will experience great deal of sluggishness and the phone tends to lag from time to time. This becomes more evident when there few widgets on the homescreen. The reason behind such a performance is the 800MHz processor and Adreno 200. Motoluxe has 1GB ROM and 512MB RAM onboard. The external memory can support up to 32GB of microSD. The Android GingerBread is what you get on this phone.

The 8MP autofocus camera can be used for taking above average photos. The images lack clarity and detail. It takes nearly three second for the camera to be ready to take new photo after snapping one photo. It can record only VGA quality videos. The music player is quite as it has a unique feature of automatically downloading lyrics and album art while playing any song. The video player only supports playing MP4 videos of not more than 800 x 480 pixels.

When it comes to web browsing, you will experience choppiness while accessing heavy sites through the preloaded browser. However, web browsing becomes a better experience on Motoluxe when you disable Adobe Flash. HSDPA at 7.2Mbps and HSUPA at 5.76Mbps are the speeds that the Motoluxe offers you. Other features include Wi-Fi, DLNA, aGPS, stereo FM radio and Bluetooth. The standard Li-Ion 1400mAh battery gives nearly 400 hours of standby time on 3G and over 4 hours of talk time on 3G.

LG Prada 3.0 Review

Rating: ★★★★☆

Prada is a very well-known Italian brand known for producing topnotch quality leather goods. It collaborated with LG in 2007 to launch the original LG Prada. It was an instant hit as it was one of the first phones to have a capacitive touchscreen display. However, the second version of the phone LG Prada II failed to achieve the same accolades because it did not offer anything as compared to its new competitors. Here comes the all new LG Prada 3.0. The phone measures 127.5 x 69 x 8.5 mm and weighs 138g. The Saffiano pattern (leather texture finish) on the phone is nothing special. There is a visible Prada logo on the device.

The LG Prada 3.0 has an IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen. It has display resolution 480 x 800 pixels with a pixel density of 217ppi. The display measures 4.3 inches. Thanks to the NOVA PLUS screen technology; the display appears very bright under sunlight. On the topside of the Prada 3.0, you can find the audio jack, microUSB slot and display lock/power button. Above the front-facing camera there is a button that launches the 1.3MP front-facing cam to take your snaps.

The LG Prada 3.0 runs on Android OS v2.3. The interface is kept very simple. The phone runs on dual-core 1 GHz cortex A-9 processor with a GPU of PowerVR SGX540. The internal storage capacity of the phone is 8GB. It comes with 1GB RAM and 512MB RAM. In the Korean version of the phone, you can find TDMB TV tuner.

Prada 3.0 comes with an 8 megapixel camera. The camera app is very intuitive. It takes a little while for the camera to focus.  It is capable of stunning photos in the outdoors with saturated colors and good details. Sadly, it fails to take good quality photos indoors even LED flash does well in illuminating the subject. It can record 1080p HD videos. The 1.3MP front-facing is good enough for snapping self-portrait photos. The video player supports all the well-known video formats including DivX and XviD.

When it comes to web browsing, the Android browser delivers good internet browsing experience thanks to its tech specs. It supports Flash. For better browsing experience, it would be better you install the Opera Mobile browser. Other features of the phone include TV-out (through MHL), aGPS, Bluetooth, WLAN, DLNA and so on. The LG Prada is powered up with 1540mAh battery that produces standby time of over 320 hours on 3G and talk time of nearly 5 hours on 3G.
