Motorola Motosurf A3100 Review

The Motorola Motosurf A3100 is a curvaceous touchscreen handset.

The Motorola Motosurf A3100 is a curvaceous touchscreen handset. Employing a stylus to make the most of the resistive touchscreen, the Motosurf A3100 offers good connectivity, quality multimedia functionality and high usability to anyone who doesn’t want an iPhone.

The edges of the Motosurf A3100 are smooth and metallic, combining nicely with the glossy black face. A 2.8 inch touchscreen takes up the majority of the handset and provides satisfactory viewing, although not the best on the market. Other controlling is done via a trackball and call buttons located at the bottom of the handset. 

This controlling is made effortless by Motorola’s use of the Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional operating system. Scrolling between screens and menus is responsive and fluid. You can browse through lists, drag and drop menu items and do a great deal of interface customisation. As the interface is Windows, the Motosurf A3100 sports a number of productivity features including Word, PowerPoint and Excel document viewers, a PDF reader and Microsoft ActiveSync.

Internet browsing is also a breeze, mainly due to the fact that the Morotola Motosurf A3100 uses Opera Mobile as its web browser. This browser is fast and efficient, providing well rendered pages and images. Connecting to the net is fine as the Motosurf A3100 is HDSPA compatible and can use the Next G network. Other excellent connectivity features include W-Fi, A2DP Bluetooth and GPS.

Using the Motorola Motosurf A3100 as an actual phone takes a little getting used to, but once you have mastered the stylus, messaging and calling is easy.  Call quality is sufficient and the design of the handset means it cradles well in your hands.

A 3-megapixel camera with flash as well as a VGA front mounted camera has your photo and video needs covered, and a 3.5 mm headphone jack is a blessing for multimedia users who want to watch videos or listen to music using their own headphones.
