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.
Summary: Despite some design issues and a couple of missing features, the Motorola Droid is the most powerful and fastest Google Android device to date. It fully embraces the openness of the Android platform and offers Verizon customers a smartphone that certainly rivals the other touch-screen devices on the market.
Pros: The Motorola Droid boasts a gorgeous display and the benefits of Android 2.0, including a faster Web browser, Google Maps Navigation app, and better messaging and contact management. It also offers excellent call quality, long talk time, and improved speed over previous Android devices.
Cons: The QWERTY keyboard feels flat and the dialpad control is restricted to the home screen. Music and video capabilities still trail behind the competition. Dual-mode functionality for world-roaming capabilities would have been a nice addition. The Droid does not support Bluetooth voice dialing.
Summary: For those looking for something different from the iPhone, Milestone is by far the best option. Offering a responsive interface, infinitely customizable OS, and a large variety of applications from the Android Market, the Milestone will give you great value for money along with great features.
Pros: Excellent build quality, The infinitely customizable Android 2.1 interface
Conclusion: Hands down, the Motorola MILESTONE is one of the best smartphones on the market today. Even if a tad heftier than what we would have liked, the build quality is great and the device sports awesome functionality, including capable browser and probably the best camera found on Android phones today.
Pros: Proper build quality and overall design, Excellent display with great sensitivity, Very good in-call quality, Very good snapshot and video quality, Multitouch-capable browser
Cons: Relatively short battery life, Touch-sensitive keys with inconvenient arrangement, Good QWERTY keyboard with clattered layout
Conclusion: It's hard not to like Moto's new robot. The Droid is a smashing smartphone that gives Verizon's lineup a serious lift. The hardware's look might be polarizing-- folks seem to either love it or hate it, but it's got a clean, modern and slim design. It's well made with one of the nicer slider mechanisms on a phone and that huge display makes you feel like you've got a mini computer disguised as a phone.
Pros: Large, high res display, fast and slim, latest Google OS.
Cons: Multimedia syncing still not there, must remove battery to access microSD card.

Summary: Motorola's Milestone isn't a game changer, but it's an excellent Android smartphone on the whole. The chunky design, awkward sliding mechanism and QWERTY keyboard are sour points, but the fantastic display, impressive features list and the updated Android OS provide a rich experience.
Pros: Gorgeous display, responsive and zippy OS, relatively thin, full Microsoft Exchange support, multitouch and Flash support, Android 2.0
Cons: Clunky slider mechanism, unimpressive QWERTY keyboard design, uninspiring design may not suit all tastes
