    Default Just received my Photon 4G!

    Bought this phone off of the marketplace on android forums. from what i can tell so far is that its a really nice phone. feels nice in the hand, battery cover is nice and grippy. fiddled with the home screens a little bit, pretty snappy. havent really been able to get into the phone yet so i will update later with my thoughts. but i can honestly say that the Evo 3D will have its hands full with this phone. its a BEAST!

































    Thats all the pics for now!!! Gonna try to activate it later tonight. ill keep you guys posted!!!

    Nice! I'm a little jealous. Good thing I dont have to wait much longer. Can you remove the bloat apps like you could on the E3d?

    Can the sd card be removed without removing the battery?

    Sure looks like you can..... :-) ....wonder if you would have to reboot in order to read the new card, though.

    Sweet! I'm pumped Sprint is allowing for removal of bloat.

    I love how it says "Confidential Motorola Restricted Property: Not For Sale" on the side.

    I'm impressed that Moto/Sprint allows for the removal of bloatware. How are the radios and signal strength? Call quality good? Inquiring minds want to know!

    The guy wanted 400 but I got it for 350. As of right now, I like this phone as much as my Evo 3D. But they are so different and do so many different things.

    Made a test call to my gf just to make sure it worked. Sounded great. The speaker phone and sound are way louder than my 3D. And the screen gets super bright!

    I'm not sure what a pentile screen is. Like difference wise. But I can tell a difference from this phone and my 3D. This screen is just as crisp and clear. Only difference is this phones screen gets SUPER BRIGHT! Both are pretty nice but both are different. Tomorrow I'll have a better review with some pics.

    I have some friends who will be buying this phone, but I'm doing some searching on it for them. Does it have the same "3d" effect as the Droid 3 does when you flick through screens or no?

    EDIT: The 5:35 mark shows what I'm talking about for those of you who haven't seen it.

    That's not much of a 3d effect imho. You can always user lpp and achieve a much greater 3d effect when scrolling from home screen to home screen.

    Thanks for the information, but I would like to know which phone has faster and better processor! The HTC EVO 3D or the MOTOROLA PHOTON 4G! I appreciate your thought.

    I'll stick with my 3D for a while. I absolutely live this thing. I really can't imagine a better phone.
