    Motorola Gleam+ with its stylish design is sure to make it great at the sales charts. However, some of the flaws in the handset if asked can be listed starting with its lack of a GPS system which is now commonly made available in similar category mobile phones too. That feature has its demands out there. The camera provided is comparatively a resolution one. 2 Mega pixels are too low in a world where the minimum is now found to be at least a 3 even in the not so popular brands.

    The camera again has its disadvantage with its inability to offer an auto focus facility. In short, the camera area isn’t something that Motorola Gleam+ can be proud of. Clicks with the provided camera device are not that impressive with the camera lacking an ambient light sensor which usually gives automated adjustments of screen brightness.

    The price however will be budget friendly according to the manufacturers. The phone will soon hit in all the leading stores.
