Motorola MILESTONE XT720 review: Android sidearm

 

The original MILESTONE was the lifeline by which Motorola pulled themselves out of their deathbed. And now the once ailing giant breathes again – but is in no mood to rest or make peace. Instead, it's breathing fire on the enemies.

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 (480 x 854 pixel) resolution ; Android OS v2.1 Eclair ; ARM Cortex A8 720MHz CPU, PowerVR SGX graphics accelerator; 256...

No DivX or XviD video support ; No smart and voice dialing ; Somewhat clumsy camera interface ; GPS navigation app only offers a 60 day trial ; No Flash support for the web browser

Motorola Milestone XT720 (unlocked) review

 

The Motorola Milestone XT720 is the next-gen model of the original Milestone--the GSM version of the Motorola Droid . This time around, Moto ditched the slide-out keyboard to give the XT720 a sleeker design, and made other improvements, such as an...

The Motorola Milestone XT720 features a sleek design and an 8-megapixel camera with HD video capture. The Android 2.1 device also offers the full gamut of wireless options.

The Milestone is sluggish at times. The camera has shutter lag, and picture quality could be better.

The Motorola Milestone XT720 is a full-featured and sleek Android smartphone, but it's rather underwhelming in the performance department.

Motorola MILESTONE XT720 Review

 

Is it a mirror? Is it a reflective PCMCIA card? No, it's the Motorola MILESTONE XT720! Touted to be Motorola's camera-phone extraordinaire, this touch-screen phone mixes a traditional candy-bar form-factor with some interesting styling, a WVGA...

Motorola Milestone XT720 Reviewed

 

The Motorola Milestone XT720 is an excellent choice in the Android phone lineup. Its features include a 3.7 inch capacitive touchscreen display, 8 MP camera, 720 MHz processor and 512 MB RAM. Read more about the smartphone in the full review.

The Motorola XT720 is undoubtedly a very capable Android smartphone, especially if you are looking for a good camera. However, if you don't need the 8 MP camera, I would recommend the Samsung Galaxy S for its better display and video support. You could...

Here is the FoneArena Motorola Milestone XT720 Review

The XT720 was first announced as the MOTOROI for Korea and we were really excited about it. But it has been launched in the market when there are lots of faster Android phones out there.The multimedia aspects of the XT720 are worth appreciating but the...

Motorola Milestone XT720

 

The 3.7" 854 x 480 pixel display is the same as the one used in the DROID or Milestone and it is one of the most attractive features in the XT720. Compared to the rival HTC Desire, the XT720's TFT panel is a bit less bright, but it has a slightly...

Motorola Milestone XT720

 

The Motorola Milestone XT720 originally released in Korea as the Motorola 'Motoroi' which is now available to the US and Europe is Motorola's successful Droid , minus the QWERTY keyboard with the specs beefed up, plus a rather distinct 'bulge' you...

The XT720 features a capacitive 3.7" inch TFT-LCD display supporting multi-touch - great to go with the Android 2.1 Eclair it packs! An 8 megapixel camera with Geo-tagging, Xenon Flash and the capability to record at High Definition HD 720p, there's...

Motorola Milestone XT720

 

This camera-centric smartphone is a bit long in the tooth but still worth considering.

High resolution display, Camera beats competition, Xenon flash

Plastic screen, Uses older version of Android, Sluggish processor

The Milestone impressed us, can its successor compete with the HTC Desire and iPhone 4?

Motorola Milestone XT720

 

First there was the Motorola Milestone (or Droid as it was known in the US), but what if you didn't like a slideout keyboard? What if you wanted a touchscreen interface, but still wanted to stay Moto friendly? Had the Milestone XT720 packed a...

3.7-inch screen, android 2.1, 8-megapixel camera, HDMI out, FM radio

550Mhz not 1Ghz processor, Design not as complete as it could be,

Had the Milestone XT720 packed a Snapdragon 1Ghz processor inside rather than the 550Mhz offering, this review would have ended very differently.
