For people that are expecting a large amount of groundbreaking features, this phone is just not for you. There are features that have been seen in flip phones ever since 2006, but this does not mean that they have not been upgraded since then. Coming with 5MB of internal memory is just enough for this phone since there is really no applications that can be added to it. Music can be downloaded from the Motorola music store, but there is only a limited amount that can be downloaded with the little memory that comes included. Odds are if someone is buying a phone like this then they may just want it simply for calling and texting, not adding music and applications.
The Motorola Gleam comes with a loud speaker for speaker phone, a headphone jack, FM radio, MicroSD card slot, and java games. Features are usually one of the biggest reasons as to why someone would buy a new cell phone, but with this phone everything has already been done before. FM Radio is a nice addition to because the minimal space to download music will not be a problem while streaming music directly to the phone. MP3 ringtones can be downloaded for crystal clear quality ringers, but every phone today is able to do this.
Luckily for people that need a cell phone to answer email messages on the run, the Motorola Gleam has this option. The small screen is not ideal for answering or composing long emails, but it is at least there for people who need it. Also for the phone being affordable, it may be the only option some people have when heading out to the store for a new cell phone. For people who love text messaging, you will have enough room to save up to 500 messages and the keypad is exactly like the RAZR, which many people had become adapted to. Talkers will have about 6 hours of talk time and 8 days of stand-by. This is longer than most smartphones available because of the power required by them.
