Motorola Milestone Review: In Depth
28 March 2014
Conclusion: Despite our reservations, the Motorola Milestone feels like a special phone, although we’re not entirely sure why. Perhaps because of the attention to detail that has gone into making it, or perhaps because it signals a return to form for Motorola which was once one of the mobile heavyweights. Either way, it’s a great handset and a real contender in today’s crowded marketplace.
Excerpt: On July 15, 2010, the Motorola Droid X made its massive debut on Verizon. With an impressive 4.3 inch screen, Android OS and dazzling HD camera, it was a much hyped smartphone that lived up to expectations.
Summary: Verizon’s Droid phones just keep getting better and better.
. The Droid X is now the best. Its larger screen, better camera, Bluetooth voice dialing, and Wi-Fi hotspot feature will make it the current Android phone of choice for many. If you want a smaller phone, the Incredible or the new line of Samsung Galaxy Android phones may be a good choice for you, but if you can manage the larger size, the Droid X is an excellent phone.
Summary: With its huge and responsive screen, sharp 8-MP camera, and mobile hotspot feature, the $199 Droid X can rightfully take its place as Verizon’s top Android device. Some may prefer the more compact Droid Incredible, but it doesn’t offer HDMI output or 720p video recording. While this device likely won’t sway Sprint customers away from the Evo 4G, especially if they live in a city with 4G coverage, Verizon Wireless power users will find that the Droid X marks the spot.
Pros: Bright massive display, Responsive and very accurate keyboard, Loud and clear speaker, HDMI output, Blockbuster app for renting buying movies,
Cons: Interface occasionally stutters, Phone might be too large for some, No front-facing camera,
Summary: Sure, the DROID has some shortcomings. That being said, it's a phenomenal media device, and is a great addition to Verizon's smartphone lineup. Battery life leaves a lot to be desired, but the 3.7-inch display, Android 2.0 software, and strong design more than make up for it. Be sure to check it out in the store prior to purchase, as the design and operating system will be a love or hate thing.
Summary: Motorola's Droid is the snappiest Android I've used to date. This is a significant issue, as one of the most common complaints I hear from Android users is regarding lag . This complaint has generally come from those using a customized version of Android - like HTC's Sense - but does come occasionally from those running vanilla Android, as is found on this device.
