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...

Motorola Milestone


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

We can’t deny that the Milestone is a great device. It has more pros than cons and we would certainly recommend the device if you are in the market for a Android phone. In fact it’s the best Android QWERTY phone today and no other handset has managed...

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...

Solid build qualityGenerous screen sizeHDMI-out for bigger display options

Slight lag in interface speedsDropped frames during 720p video recordingPoor imaging results from 8-megapixel camera

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...

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...

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...

Motorola Milestone - Second Chance


There's much to be said about the Motorola Milestone. Its debut as the Droid in the US was a sign of things to come from Motorola, especially so in the Android scene. To say the least, the Droid was as important to Motorola for its revival as it is to...
