Motorola MILESTONE 2 review: Landmark droid

 

The MILESTONE 2 has a single mission – to reclaim the top spot in Android messengers for Motorola. It has the pedigree and the personality, and with the right upgrades, it seems a lock to become the next all-in-one messenger of choice.

Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G with HSDPA and HSUPA support ; 3.7" 16M-color capacitive touchscreen with WVGA (480x 854 pixels) resolution ; Scratch-resistant Gorilla glass ; One of the slimmest QWERTY side sliders ; TI OMAP3630 1GHz CPU, PowerVR...

The internal 8GB of storage is for apps only ; Side sliding mechanism is not spring-assisted ; DivX and XviD playback has its issues ; Non hot-swappable microSD card slot ; No FM radio

Great phones are never good at just one thing. The Motorola MILESTONE 2 can do a lot and it can do it right for a lot of different users.

Motorola Milestone 2 Review

 

The Motorola Milestone 2 is an excellent phone with Android 2.2 froyo. It has excellent hardware specs and comes with a 3.7 inch TFT display and a stylish design. Try the Milestone 2 and you won't be disappointed.

The Motorola Milestone 2 is one of the best QWERTY Android sliders available. It competes directly with the HTC Desire Z, but with a faster processor, and a better UI with Motoblur, I find the Motorola Milestone 2 a slightly better deal and I would...

Motorola Milestone 2

 

Launched at the end of 2009, the original Milestone was an impressive piece of kit, but a year on it definitely needs an update, and the Milestone 2 adds a faster processor, much improved keyboard, more internal memory, Android 2.2 and full Flash...

Motorola Milestone 2

 

The Motorola Milestone 2 is the European Version of the Motorola Droid 2. The biggest differences are that this phone runs on a GSM network and includes MOTOBLUR as opposed to the stock Android on the Droid 2.

Spec-wise it's all the same. 3.7 inch touchscreen, slide out keyboard, and 8 GB of onboard memory. The Milestone 2 is looking to drop sometime in quarter 4 of this year.

Motorola Milestone 2 - HardwareZone.com

 

With its 1GHz processor, 3G mobile hotspot connectivity, an enhanced version of MOTOBLUR, Adobe Flash Player 10 video support, HD video, seven customizable screens and access to thousands of apps, Milestone 2 does more than ever before.

Improved keyboard design; Good battery life; Refined MOTOBLUR interface

Sub-par camera capabilities; Average hardware performance; Inaccessible memory card slot

Motorola Milestone 2 review

 

A thinner and faster redesign of Motorola's quirky QWERTY

Rock solid metallic body and keyboard ; Great, responsive screen ; Good camera, fantastic 720p video quality ; Fast, glitch free operation ; Some great media and connectivity features via Motoblur

Tatty-looking, bloated Motoblur widgets ; Below average battery life ; Poor video file support ; Keyboard is a little too small for easy use ; Terribly clunky Motoblur Facebook and Twitter integration

This time last year the Motorola Milestone won itself a fair few fans thanks to being one of the few high-spec Android phones to come with a QWERTY keyboard attached to it.

Motorola Milestone 2 review: The Motorola Milestone 2 offers an improved keyboard and HD video recording

Great keyboard, industrial style design is well built, smooth slider, excellent display, latest version of Android

Touch-sensitive menu keys, feels a little slower than alternative Android handsets, design won't suit all tastes

The Motorola Milestone 2 is a very similar smartphone to its predecessor. However, the Milestone 2's improved keyboard, HD video recording and faster processor are all welcome improvements and make it well worth considering if you're after an Android...
