Motorola PRO+ Review
We are quite satisfied with the in-call audio performance of the Motorola PRO+ as the earpiece produces loud and distinct tones even when its volume is not turned up all the way. There is a secondary microphone, which suppresses a great deal of background noise, and our voice sounded really distinct on the other side of the line, although slightly artificial. When it comes to battery life, the Motorola PRO+ can provide 8 hours of talk time or last for 312 hours in stand-by mode, which are both figures slightly above the average.


Conclusion:

In conclusion, the Motorola PRO+ could have been a good entry-level business-oriented device if it wasn't for the poor performance of its browser, but other than that, there is little for us to complain about.   We find itvery suitable for people who simply prefer physical keyboards over virtual ones; people who like texting and spend a lot of time chatting with their buddies online. Besides, the smartphone  is pretty strong in the multimedia department and packs an eye-pleasing display.

Of course, it would be a good idea to check out some of the alternatives. If you are a social freak, the HTC ChaCha is worth considering as it packs a physical keyboard as well, yet comes cheaper than the PRO+. Besides, the Samsung GALAXY Y Pro and the M Pro share the same form factor, and even though might not perform as well, both are considerably cheaper. But the best alternative in our opinion would be the Sony Ericsson mini pro, which offers both identical hardware and a physical keyboard, yet can be bought much cheaper.

RIM's offerings and HTC's Salsa are better looking.

I loved the first Pro. Would it kill one of the phone manufacturers to make a high end business device?
