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: 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.
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
