Motorola has stuck with an 8-megapixel sensor for the Photon Q, and unfortunately results could have been better. In general photos turned out with muted colors and soft detail. The Photon Q has good detail in close up shots, but from even just five feet away the sharpness begins to wane.

The camcorder performed better than the camera, shooting video at 1080p and 30fps. Color reproduction was still muted, but overall we were impressed with the quality and fluidity of the videos. It would benefit from image stabilization, but we were still pleased with the results. Despite the sunny skies, the frequent glints you see in our sample video is large raindrops which the Photon Q did a good job of filming.

Multimedia:

Of note, Google Play Music is the only loaded music player, something we’d imagine is directly related to Google now owning Motorola. Google Play Books and Movies & TV are also preloaded for your reading and watching pleasure.
