Net10 Motorola EX124G Review

Rating: 

Average: 2.6 (14 votes)

Well finally the long anticipated Net10 Motorola EX124G has hit the shelf over the weekend, and this phone has brought mixed reactions in the Net10 Camp. The main talking point about this model is the sensor touch screen that works best with the included stylus. As you might be able to tell from the unboxing video this phone is somewhat hard to use as a "touch screen" using your hands.  So if you like a stylus your in luck! otherwise I guess this phone may not be for you.

Priced at $80 ex tax at Walmart stores across the nation, it may be a little over priced (ok way over) for what it is considering there are models like the LG800G that are half the price and are easier to use. 

Applications: The phone has Java installed and your able to purchase Java games and apps using the data connection. I did not see any way to install apps using USB, or the SD card however if we find a way we will let you know.

There are no apps installed by default, but there are a few proprietary built in apps like calculator, stopwatch and others as expected.

The phone feels light in the hand but appears to be a good quality build, very similar to the LG800G

Overall the phone is a 4 out of 10, it will only appeal to stylus fanatics, as there is better phones on Net10 at a better price.

I thought that was an excellent review. I have a 900 and you give a first rate comparison.

I agree

Comment: 

I agree with the comparison to LG800G. LG is cheaper and yet nearly same features. However my LG800G crapped-out a couple days later. Motorola was TWICE the price.

Installing Android apps on Ex124G

Comment: 

@Ralph On Thu, 09/15/2011 - 09:04 you said: "plus what's weird is the apps for an android phone works in my ex124g, but you have to install them on the micro card first and install back in the phone,can't explain it but it works" I don't have any trouble installing JAVA J2ME apps (files that end with .jar) but I don't have a clue how to install Android apps. Could you or anybody post step by step instructions on how to install and run an Android app?
