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.
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.
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
Excerpt: The Droid is Motorola’s second attempt at an Android phone but the first one they’ve actually gotten right. More importantly, it’s one of the first phones that can legitimately stand head-to-head with the iPhone — and come out ahead in some significant respects. Like get decent reception!
Pros: An awesome Android phone on the Verizon network — finally! Gorgeous, responsive touchscreen. Fast, fast processor. Excellent browser. User-replaceable battery.
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.
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
