The Motorola Tundra boasts a good quality and high performing earpiece and speakers good enough for music and voice calls. It makes use of the trademark CrystalTalk technology of Motorola that enhances audio quality during calls by canceling outdoor ambient noise settings.
Contacts are very easy to enter in this phone, although the text is very small despite the presence of enough space on the display. Contact information can be entered such as phone number, email address, address and other personal data. Users also may assign a picture and ringtone for specific contacts. The handset also comes with presets for popular web-based services and messaging systems like AIM.
The 3G support of the Tundra can deliver HTML web pages swiftly, although not as swift as those of the other 3G mobile phones available in the market. The web text however is often tiny even though the display size of the mobile phone is 2.2 inches. Zooming is possible but it frequently does not work.
The 2 megapixel camera provides basic photo capture, with the device’s external screen also used as a self-portrait screen even if there is no flash. Users however should not expect the most brilliant pictures with this feature as the phone only carries a basic camera. Shots taken indoors are usually lifeless and dull, especially those taken without flash.
The phone’s battery is said to last up to 316 minutes, or roughly 5 ½ hours. However, use of the phone reveals that the phone can only deliver up to 4.24 hours of constant talk time. The standby time, however, is a good 20 days.
