I will never buy another Motorola product

I bought this back in 2011, and enjoyed it for a little then, but soon found the problems with reception, poor battery life, out-of-date OS, etc., so this is *not* a comparison of an old phone with newer ones. It's just a review that is three years overdue.
I should have realised it was crap about two weeks after I bought it, when it refused to wake from sleep mode, although fully charged, and I had to call my provider's tech support line. With very little delay, they told me to take out the battery and reinsert it after waiting for 60 seconds. Really? Seriously?

- it also has an FM radio
- very little memory (yes, 12GB on the micro SD, but you can't store any apps there with this version of Android)
- poor battery
- poor reception
- fuzzy camera
- Android version way out of date and cannot be upgraded
- occasionally refuses to come out of sleep mode, although it is fully charged. only recourse is to yank out the battery, wait 60 seconds, reinstall the battery and then turn it on again. especially annoying if it's ringing at the time!

Ehh its ok. Not nearly as good as the others say it is, compared to today's phones.

This phone is ok for everyday use if you don't play a lot of games. Its pretty laggy, taking pictures is a pain despite the quality. Pictures turn out badly in the dark, and the phone often crashes. Has a REALLY small system memory, only 30 MEGABYTES for you to use, and many apps can't be saved to the sd card.Build quality 10/10Reception 9/10Call quality 10/10Internet 7/10Multimedia 8/10Camera 6/10UI speed 4/10Everyday usage 6/10Text input 5/10Display 9/10Battery 10/10

excelent smart phone ,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.
Motorola had itself a true droid army in almost no time – and the best thing is it’s not an army of clones. Creative designs and rich equipment helped the company make an emphatic comeback, and the XT720 is focused on keeping up that momentum.
It’s not as simple as calling it a sequel – a QWERTY-less alternative of the original MILESTONE. 8 megapixels and a Xenon flash for a physical keyboard is a trade-off many users would be delighted to accept. But the Motorola XT720 is keen to offer more. It packs its punch with character and personality.Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 10/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 10/10

vey good phone i like it very much excelent smart phone ,The original MILESTONE was the lifeline Motorola MILESTONE XT720 is an Android 2.1 smartphone, ready to take great images with its 8MP camera with Xenon flash. This really looks to be the most camera-centric Android handset to date, especially when you throw 720p HD video recording into the deal. Other than that, the Motorola MILESTONE XT720 seems to be a very good looking handset with characteristic design, large 3.7-inch, 480x854 resolution capacitive screen, HDMI interface, 3.5mm jack, and all other kinds of stuff.Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 10/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 10/10
