Summary: First off the phone is smaller then you would think im talking the whole phone not the just the screen size. The keyboard buttons are very jammed tight. It freezes alot and it shuts off randomly. On phone calls its really easy to push buttons with you cheek because the screen does not like to stay blacked out. I understand its not a 3g phone but even for edge it runs slow for what in its time was a high end android.
Summary: so far, i've had this phone for a year..... the thing is, i can't really buy any phones from tmobile, because i'm not the owner of my tmobile account....so i decided to buy a unlocked phone. So far this phone has been great, but as usual, there are a few pro's and con's... pros -android -qwerty keyboard -big touch screen -works with tmobile 2g -VERY STRONG PHONE < nearly indistructable cons -short battery -d-pad placed in an uncomfortable position -keypad hard to reach...
Summary: The device itself is solid and nice. Even the keyboad is nice. I will skip all the good (which im sure you can find a lot elsewhere) and go stright to the bad: The Milestone is a locked phone. This means that the only way for you to get any software updates are through Motorola. This could be OK except that Motorola is doing a terrible job in releasing software updates. I have been waiting for a Froyo update a long time. I'm not a phone hacker, i use my phone for work.
Summary: Since people like lists, I'll start with what I liked and disliked. Pros: 1. One of the best screens that is not an iPhone 4. 2. Amazing browsing capabilities. 3. Relatively fast processor and GPU. Cons: 1. Constant echo on all voice calls (T-Mobile and Skype). 2. Sound quality through the earpiece is mediocre. 3. People on the other end often complain of audio distortion (e.g.
Summary: The phone is great. Nice display, good navigation, great access to applications. However in today's world a phone that doesn't work with 3G is extremely lacking. The European version of this phone can connect to Motorola's website and update to Android 2.1 OS. However, the best connection on AT&Ts network is EDGE...which is the slowest data speed. Only the TELUS version can access the AT&T 3G network. Beware of the European versions if speed is your concern.
Summary: This phone has the potential to be great. Due to the fact that Motorola will not unlock the boot loader it falls very short of the great mark and hits somewhere in the mediocre range. I would otherwise say this phone is wonderful. Look at all the droid has done and you can see the potential of this device.
Summary: I was recently at a local mall and decided to browse a few stores to check out the latest smart phones. Went to a Verizon Wireless store and tried the Motorola Droid. I was not impressed. Laggy interface and slow web browser. Mentioned this to the salesperson who commented that the mall did not get very good cell reception (the Droid only had 1-2 bars). Then I took out my iphone 3gs to see what reception I was getting. Interestingly- five full bars!!
