Making Cell Phone Shopping Fun – Shopping for the Motorola Photon #MotoCalyp #cbias

I have had the same phone for quite some time and it is getting to the point where I can no longer even understand what people are saying when I talk to them because of the internal speaker and problems with it. I have been contemplating upgrading to a data plan and a more robust smart phone but have been hesitant due to price. Thus, I decided to do some research on smart phone that were on the market on my carrier (Sprint).

In doing the research I found that I was drawn to the Motorola Photon. I was impressed with all of the extras that the phone provides, the great internal camera and graphics as well as so much more! I was excited when I was asked to go and research this phone a bit more as I continued to prepare to make the decision of whether to buy this or not.

I decided to go to a few stores and try out the phone itself as well as do some price comparison as I know that I would like the best deal that I can find on this phone if I so chose to do it, I started my search at Best Buy.  The first thing that I noticed here was that they had a good selection of phones for many carriers. I did not like the fact that the phones were inoperable.  The price for this phone was reasonable though, a mere $99 with a two year agreement.

Then I decided to try out local Sprint Store and there they had less phones overall, and for some reason their prices were substantially higher than Best Buy ($100 higher). I found this to be interesting as I would have thought that Sprint would try and be cost conscious, but alas they were not.

In looking at the phone itself I have to say that I loved the overall display and the screen was so large. The pictures and color in the display was so vivid and when you watch a video on the phone you will be amazed to see how clear of an image it produces. The camera takes decent pictures (as good as a regular 8 mp camera will. The phone does make gathering and sharing information intuitive in nature and so easy.

Overall, I was impressed and I know that I will be highly considering this phone in the future as I make the change to my own phone!

  14. I used to have your current phone until one day while I was texting the screen just went black then flashed a bunch of words then black again. and never turned on again. It was only 6months old Iam surprise yours is still working.{I’ve heard others have the same problem} This new Photon seems like a great choice to upgrade to. I like the large screen and high quality camera.

    • I have had some issues with Palm’s in the past with their battery ceasing up and then I have to take the battery out and reboot and then it works fine… but alas, it is a old phone!
