Motorola ES400S Sprint Mobile - First Look Review

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

The ES400S isn't small, but given its rugged design, that's to be expected. It measures 5.1 by 2.4 by 0.7 inches (HWD) and weighs 5.5 ounces with the standard 1540mAh battery. An optional, tremendous 3080mAh extended battery adds an extra ounce and another two tenths of an inch in depth. You'll want this, because the ES400S's paltry talk time of just 3 hours and 25 minutes with the standard battery was a real disappointment. The 3-inch PenTile LCD display is a mixture of old and new technologies. It's plastic and resistive, it offers standard VGA (640-by-480-pixel) resolution, and it's designed to be used with the supplied plastic stylus, all of which makes the screen old tech. But it's also LED-backlit and features haptic feedback, which are two unusual features for a stylus-based display. Regardless, it looks unusually bright and colorful for a plastic screen.
