Description

Motorola MOTOLUXE is a mid-range smartphone with a notification light that doubles as a place to attach a lanyard. The dedicated lanyard groove, as Motorola calls it, is located at the bottom left of the handset. That is also where the colored lighting for the devices notifications happens to be located. Aside from the added lanyard grove, the MOTOLUXE is an Android 2.3 device with a custom user interface called MotoSwitch. The hardware features a 4-inch, 480x854 display. Powering the smartphone behind the scenes is a single-core 800MHz processor and 512MB of RAM. Around the back the MOTOLUXE has an 8 megapixel camera with an LED flash. The front of the handset houses a VGA camera to aid in all of your video chatting needs. It also has a 1,400 mAh battery that Motorola claims will give the MOTOLUXE 6.5 hours of talk time.

  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 245 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

    Positioning - This field shows the positioning systems supported by the device. There are three main types: GPS, A-GPS and GLONASS. GPS - This is one of the most widespread global positioning technologies, developed and maintained by the U.S. government. It uses satellites in order to detect your location. Works best in clear weather. A-GPS - A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS and is the industry standard for positioning and navigation. “Assisted” means that it can use local wireless networks, in addition to satellites, for quicker and more precise localization. GLONASS - GLONASS is a global positioning system, developed by the Russian Federation. It’s very similar to GPS, but isn’t so popular in cell phones.

    FCC measured SAR - The exposure standard for mobile devices employs a unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate, or SAR. The SAR limit stated in the international guidelines is 2.0 W/ kg*. Tests for SAR are conducted using standard operating positions with the device transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified power level, the actual SAR of the device while operating can be well below the maximum value.
