Motorola XPRT ReviewMotorola XPRT 8
Motorola XPRT was a solid all-around performer with good call quality and battery life. Users complained of a slight nasal quality but praised its background noise cancellation, rating us an 8/10 overall. To us the callers sounded natural and clear, and the speakerphone is particularly high quality. There was none of the “echo chamber” effect we experienced on the DROID Pro. The battery specs have been bumped as well, from 7 to 8 hours of continuous talk time. In our mixed usage we had no problem getting through a day of above average usage.
The XPRT is the first Motorola CDMA device Sprint has carried in quite some time and marks the beginning of a renewed relationship between the two companies. While it may be an older device on the market, it is a good one and is needed in Sprint’s lineup. Many power users will no doubt choose the HTC EVO 3D or hold out for the upcoming Motorola Photon 4G, but the XPRT gives Sprint a solid phone for enterprise users who want to get away from RIM but still keep the security features a BES offered them. We’d imagine the keyboard, familiar design and good battery life will also land the XPRT in the pocket of many casual BlackBerry owners or first time smartphone buyers.
Software version of the reviewed unit:
Android: 2.2.2, build KRNS-X4-1.1.5
Motorola XPRT Video Review:
- Enterprise level security will appeal to the business users
- Better call quality and battery life
- Global roaming capability
- Keyboard is better than the DROID Pro, but still a bit stiff
- No visual voicemail

dude i agree but its 2011 and smartphones with 680 mhz processors and 256 ram are thought to be seriously slow and low tech

An independent trucker I go to Church with owns the PRO and loves it. I spent an afternoon helping him set it up. Very good phone. While some slam it is as "old", it is not obsolete by any stretch of the imagination. I would not shy away from it in the least if a business first, play second device is what you need. You will need a little patience with the Motorblur UI on first set-up, though.

this is one of the only accurate depictions of Blur i've ever seen in any review, i'm quite satisfied with how that was handled. (:

This is one of the best reviews I saw. I saw a full spec of Motorola XPRT in Motoask Forum.
