Motorola Roadster 2 Review
Last year, we loved nearly everything about the Motorola Roadster Bluetooth speakerphone, except for the fact that it failed in one crucial area – calling quality! Needless to say, that’s undoubtedly the most important thing for any Bluetooth speakerphone, but it seems that Motorola is going to attempt to redeem itself with its successor in the aptly named Motorola Roadster 2.
Design-wise, there’s nothing different about this one whatsoever, which is a shame in a way because it would’ve been nice to see an update after so long. However, the single thing new about it, is the silverfish color scheme it has going on – as opposed to the all-black finish of its predecessor. Even though we’re bummed with the rehashed design, it’s nevertheless solid with its overall build quality.
Taking up a majority of its front surface, the Roaster 2’s speaker grill is prominently in full view – while physical buttons occupy the areas above and below it. Yes, the buttons are flat to the feel once again, but as usual, they exhibit a decent amount of response when pressed. On one side, we’re greeted with its power switch, LED light, and microUSB port to charge its internal battery, which is rated to offer 20 hours of talk time. Lastly, the sturdy clip enables it to cling tightly to our car’s visor without any worries of coming off.
