The Milestone is a much more accomplished handset than the Dext, Motorolaâ?? s previous Android offering. Itâ?? s faster, has a much better screen, supports multi-touch input and is laden down with features. In most respects itâ?? s also a better handset than the HTC Hero, but weâ?? re not sure itâ?? s going to do quite as well as that phone, mainly because we can see the styling putting a lot of people off.
Motorola's Milestone isn't a game changer, but it's an excellent Android smartphone on the whole. The chunky design, awkward sliding mechanism and QWERTY keyboard are sour points, but the fantastic display, impressive features list and the updated Android OS provide a rich experience.
Video is sharp, although not especially colourful given the capabilities of the screen.
Milestone is a terrible name for a phone, especially when the handset in question is pretty hefty (165 grams): after the capital heavy, vowel-less fun of RAZR, PEBBL and DEXT (presumably BRCK didn’t make the cut as a potential name), it seems Motorola is taking itself very seriously indeed. But while the Milestone does a great job of the serious business of a smartphone, running apps and browsers at lightning-fast pace, it fails in other areas that are just as crucial.
excellent call quality
Despite some design issues and a couple of missing features, the Motorola Droid is the most powerful and fastest Google Android device to date. It fully embraces the openness of the Android platform and offers Verizon customers a smartphone that certainly rivals the other touch-screen devices on the market.
With its glossy, DVD-quality
screen, YouTube -- and video games -- never looked so good.
The Motorola Droid for Verizon is a stunning smartphone. Loaded with free Google apps and a nimble browser that it displays Web pages and video on a large, colorful screen, the phone thrills and delights much as the iPhone does.
Call quality was very good, too, with voices on both sides coming through loud and clear.
The Droid offers a gorgeous display, a top-notch GPS application, and excellent call quality. Alas, I can't rave about its camera, keyboard, and Web browser. I'm not sold on the Droid as an iPhone killer, but it is an iPhone alternative that will appeal to those who like Verizon's network.
the phone is smart about adding new possibilities to these.
The Motorola Droid is a fascinating device, and a great addition to Verizon Wireless' lineup. It's the exact opposite of the While the CLIQ provides an innovative and deeply integrated social networking platform on top of a shoddy piece of hardware, the Motorola Droid is one of the most solid phones we've used, but it adds little to Google's own innovation.
The straightforward music player supports playlist building, album art, and shuffle and loop playback modes.
The Motorola Droid certainly stands out among the growing Android army due to its superior hardware and enhanced 2.0 software. But will the Android Marketplace catch up to the iPhone's App Store? Therein lies the key to success for the Droid. The Droid certainly lives up to its promises and does a lot of things the iPhone doesn't. The iPhone will probably keep its smartphone throne for now, but it will have to deal with a powerful new competitor.
modern minimalist phone
It's hard not to like Moto's new robot. The Droid is a smashing smartphone that gives Verizon's lineup a serious lift. The hardware's look might be polarizing-- folks seem to either love it or hate it, but it's got a clean, modern and slim design. It's well made with one of the nicer slider mechanisms on a phone and that huge display makes you feel like you've got a mini computer disguised as a phone. Reception is excellent and data speeds and web page load times are likewise tops.
easily the best Android phone
It will be difficult for casual observers not to see the DROID as a kind of anti-iPhone in Verizon's arsenal. Certainly the company has played up the comparison with its "DROID does" ad campaign, and it's no secret that Verizon and Apple have previously had some friction -- the V famously passed on the first-generation iPhone, after all.
At .54 inches thick, the Droid is one of the thinnest slider phones around, thinner even than the .61 thick Cliq.
Each new Android smartphone seems to improve on its predecessors. But Motorola’s latest, the Droid from Verizon Wireless, is a veritable quantum leap well beyond recent peers such as the Samsung Moment and the HTC Hero , both from Sprint – and even the Motorola Cliq (available on T-Mobile).
After the success of the E50 from Nokia, there was a demand for a something better in a similar package. That's when Nokia launched the E51. While the E50 was promising for an average user, the E51 packages power that'll suffice for demanding users. Can the E51 provide the power that many users expect with its conservative design? Let's find out.
The Xenon flash-assisted camera is similarly crowd-pleasing, producing photos with excellent colour balance and exquisitely captured detail.
The Satio does the basics well: call quality is good, text entry familiar and accurate, and battery life is comparable to any other smartphone you may care to name. But the Symbian OS is the blundering, ugly beast to the beauty of the Satio’s hardware design and media savvy, and it’s a fundamental flaw that I find difficult to forgive.
The Sony Ericsson Satio (previously known as the Idou) offers the ultimate multimedia experience. The 3.5 inch screen allows for crystal clear video playback, the 12.1 megapixel offers even clearer pictures and the full touch media menu lets you navigate the handset with ease.The Satio lets you enjoy any form of entertainment, anytime, anywhere.

Camera phones have been here for almost three years now, but the real progress on the quality and resolution front is just about to take off. Internationally, camera phones have hit a max of five megapixels, while locally the Nokia 7610 is the best camera phone officially available.
