First Look: Motorola Grasp (U.S. Cellular)

1:08 /

The Motorola Grasp is a simple entry-level messaging phone with standard features and a full QWERTY keyboard.

-I'm Nicole Lee, senior associate editor for cnet.com and this is a first look at the Motorola Grasp for U.S. Cellular. It is a simple entry-level messaging phone. On the front here is a 2.2-inch color display. It's a little bit lackluster, only supports 65,000 colors. It is not as bright as you would like. You'll also get a full QWERTY keyboard. As you can see, the keys are raised above the surface so it's easy to text and dial. However, the keys do feel a little bit stiff when pressed. One thing we found a little odd is that the overall display and keyboard is a little bit offset to the right. Features of the phone are fairly basic. You do get the usual text and multimedia messaging features of course. You'll see get the 1.3-megapixel camera and camcorder and the usual voice command features. There's also a music player as well as stereo Bluetooth. The Motorola Grasp is available for $40 with a new 2-year service agreement. I'm Nicole Lee. This has been the first look at the Motorola Grasp for U.S. Cellular.
