Motorola MPx220 Review

As a clamshell form factor, the exterior features an outer color display allowing users to quickly glance to see who's calling without opening the phone. The speaker grill is located below the screen; used during handsfree access and music playback. While the lens and flash of the integrated 1.2 megapixel camera sits along the bottom, allowing convenient access to capture photos of business and personal encounters.

When flipped opened, the brilliant 176 x 220 px internal screen is revealed, capable of displaying 65K colors. A slightly oversized directional keypad is flanked by the Home, Back, and Left and Right soft keys, used for convenient shortcut navigation. Below the Home and Back keys are the Talk and End keys respectively. In the dark, a faint blue glow illuminates the recessed numeric keypad, used with iTAP predictive text input for trouble-free messaging.

Against the left side contains a 2.5 mm headset jack, volume keys, and power button. While the right side features a built-in infrared port, dedicated camera button, and miniSD card slot; for when the MPx220's internal memory runs out. Connection ports for charging and synchronization are located on the bottom.
