Motorola Milestone

 

The Milestone has been one of the more anticipated handsets for our sector. In fact after poking around a bit into the gray market and other the international as well I found that the handset is selling quite well and Motorola is back! Razer be damned....

The price tag on the Milestone is Rs. 32,990 (MRP) which means the MOP could very well be around Rs. 30,000 putting it in the HTC Hero’s league. While it’s quite a hardcore handset and does have a considerably amount of speed to offer for multitasking,...

Motorola MILESTONE review: Hello Droid

 

Android devices come from all walks of life but rarely do they carry as much baggage as the MILESTONE. Motorola seem to be betting the farm with the MILESTONE and the warm reception it's getting must leave them breathing a sigh of relief...

Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support ; 10.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA support ; 3.7" 16M-color capacitive touchscreen of WVGA (480x 854 pixel) resolution ; Android OS v2.0 with kinetic scrolling and pinch zooming ; Slimmest side slider with full...

No DivX and XviD video playback ; No smart and voice dialing ; Somewhat clumsy camera interface and limited camera features ; No free GPS navigation solution ; No Flash support for the web browser ; No FM radio

So, Motorola are back with a bang and the MILESTONE is one of the best spec'd phones to ever run Android. The Google Nexus One is supposed to instill fear in nearly every touchscreen device out there but the Moto Droid must be positioned well enough by...

Motorola MILESTONE Review

 

You´ve probably noticed that Motorola has not been doing great in financial terms lately, registered record-breaking losses and has been slowly, but steadily, losing ground on the cell phone market and the major winners that cashed in on the weakness...

The Milestone isn't particularly good looking but it's easily one of the toughest Android smartphones we've ever tested

The Milestone is, quite literally, a solid phone with decent features. It just feels a little dated compared to other Android devices.

Motorola Milestone Review

 

Motorola was a successful company that enjoyed peak sales with their RAZR series of phones. But the sales went downhill as they were not able to bring out anything new other than phones that were quite similar to the RAZR phones in design and...

Brilliant Design ; Great Build Quality ; Huge Display ; Good Audio Quality ; Plenty of Connectivity options ; Android 2.1 with Android Market ; 5 MP Camera

Average Battery Life ; QWERTY keyboard needs refinement ; Mediocre Camera ; No FM Radio

The camera is actually very good. Indoor and outdoor pics have come out well with this device.

Motorola Milestone XT - Mobile Movie Mania

 

Imagine a phone that records 720p videos and connects to your HDTV with a HDMI cable. Or don't imagine, but read about it in our review of Motorola's latest addition to its Milestone family, the Motorola Milestone XT. Can it live up to the original...

Review: Motorola Milestone (Droid)

 

The Milestone is the largest touch screen phone I've tried to use for any length of time. Its 3.7 inch capacitive screen is a joy to use for web surfing and media playback but, in the end, is a tad too large for my liking. This is made worse by the...

The Motorola’s form-factor divides opinion – I’m not its greatest fan – but with a generous 3.7inch screen, large slide-out QWERTY and solid build it will certainly find plenty of fans. Software-wise, you have almost the latest build of Android, which...

Motorola Milestone Smartphone Review

 

It's the Android Smartphone that you've been waiting for.

Priced at AED 2,500, I feel that the Milestone is an excellent buy. It’s not only the best Android device that I have ever used but its also the second best touch screen device. Yes, the comparison to the iPhone is inevitable- and although there are...

The Motorola Milestone, also known as the Droid, represents a fresh start and a second chance for Motorola to impress and influence the smartphone market.

Slim form factor; Syncing features by Motorola; High battery mileage

Late November, Motorola launched the first Android 2.0/Eclair smartphone in the US and Europe - the Motorola Droid (in the US) aka the Motorola Milestone (in Europe). Like Motorola's first Android smartphone, the Motorola Cliq/Motorola Dext, the...
