Review: Motorola Brings QWERTY Expertise To Sprint With Photon Q

Motorola has long been one of the strongest Android phone makers. While Samsung may get higher numbers and HTC a bit more of the mind share, Motorola’s original Droid for Verizon is arguably the phone that made Android take off as more than just “not iPhone.” The line is so successful that many users dub […]
