Motorola Iron Max Motoluxe review

Motorola has been quietly beavering away on some interesting innovations recently, not least its high-end new RAZR series. But its bread and butter is in mid-range Android handsets like Motoluxe, which despite its premium sounding name and better than average camera is very much a middle-of-the-road phone.


Style-wise it's the familiar Motorola-esque black slab but it has an extended lanyard slot at bottom left, with an insert green LED inside that lights up when you receive a message or when the phone's charging.

The four-inch screen offers a perfectly respectable 854x480 pixels, which works out at 244ppi -- it's not up there with the very best but it's certainly not bad, and looks crisp and detailed enough when surfing the web or viewing video.

It's running Android 2.3.7 Gingerbread, so no Ice Cream Sandwich yet, if at all (Motorola won't confirm if an update is on the way, but apparently all Motorola phones are guaranteed at least one software update in their lifetime, so there's hope). Switch it on and you're presented with a twist on the lock ring we've seen on some of HTC's Gingerbread handsets. On this version there's a central key button surrounded by six programmable shortcuts for phone, browser, texting, email and calendar, plus a mute setting. You can open the last function you accessed by pulling the key outwards, or you can go straight to one of the functions by dragging it into the centre. It's a neat, time-saving feature.

Other Motorola tweaks include the Social Graph widget, which can be set to populate the screen automatically with pics of your most popular contacts (or you can set it up with your favourites manually). There's also the Activity Graph widget, which does the same for your most popular apps. Neither are essential, but they are useful, and help to make the phone a bit more distinctive.

The 800MHz processor backed by 512MB RAM won't come top in many hi-spec lists, but it did its job capably enough, with no obvious signs of lag. The eight-megapixel camera is a bit above the mid-range Android average by at least three megapixels. It's helped by a bright LED flash, autofocus and digital zoom and while picture quality is pretty good, there are other snappers that do better with these sort of specs, notably from Samsung and LG. On the downside, it takes a little too long to open and there's no HD video recording either, just standard-definition 800x489-pixel resolution.

There's a measly 300MB of memory on-board but you can insert a microSD card up to 32GB. The battery held up fairly well, delivering a solid day's worth of steady use.


The Motorola Motoluxe offers a decent range of features and just a little bit of Motorola personality to help it stand out from the midrange Android crowd.

Motorola iron max - Motolux: The good and the bad

What a dark horse this phone is. Recently got this phone after seeing on you tube by accident. I am a total phone nut & own approx eight at the moment including iphone4, samsung nexus s, LG optimus black, Lumia 800 & so on. So I know a good phone & this is a cracker! for below £200. It has an 800mhz processor but this does not slow it so much its noticed. What it does achieve though is a longer sustained battery life. On sole use of this mobile, can easily do 2 -3 days. All my other phones can achieve at best is one.

Due to the phone being an alloy design it does not creak when pressure is put on it. Anyone owns a plastic mobile will know exactly what I mean by that. The Motoluxe feels a very expensive device & best way to describe would be the feel of teflon. Its also very misleading on video just how slim the device is. I originally thought must be chuncky like the defy but its not.

The device is very slim & the styling makes it feel slimmer. I also like the illumination port lower left of device, that notifies of text, e-mail & calls. Great for me as work where mobile ringing calls not allowed, so easily know when a text or e-mail arrives. The quick launch from main screen to any applications you wish is also something only just being seen on ICS, devices. As said previous this phone is less than £200 & most middle range phones are well above this price.

I Believe the saving was due to using a sub 1ghz processor, but it doesn't appear to make any difference being slightly underpowered & Motorola have done a good job of getting a good performance out of the device. I only ever use 3G & constantly get buffering on my phones when playing videos, except this phone. I am very confused by the least powerfull phone I own being the best video player? bluetooth connects fine & GPS again perfect. Its the first Motorola I have ever owned, but after this device it wont be the last.
