The Motorola Hint QA30 seems like a good idea, but some major design concerns keep it from being a top messaging phone.

Motorola Hint QA30

The Hint QA30 looks a little weird, but its design grows on you.

When the slider is closed, the Hint's squarish shape is unmistakable.

The Hint's volume rocker on its left spine was flush. We had difficulty finding it when on a call.

The Hint's camera lens is on its rear face. Unfortunately, we couldn't fully secure the battery cover.

The Hint's keyboard is as wide as it can be without making the phone larger. Still, some users might find it to be small.

The Hint's keys were difficult to grasp and they felt rather stiff.

We also weren't crazy about the Hint's navigation controls.

The Hint is wide, but it travels well. It also has a solid feel in the hand.

The Hint's camera doesn't offer a flash or a self-portrait mirror.
