The average consumer who is out for a smartphone will really enjoy the MILESTONE

from BGR (5 years ago)

There’s no denying that we’ve had some pretty uncomplimentary things to say about the MILESTONE, but it must not be forgotten that we’ve also given it a lot of praise. As we sit back and try and think of how to sum up our thoughts into a few sentences, we can’t help but co... More

True milestone device for a troubled, former majesty that has lived without glory long enough

from PhoneArena (6 years ago)

Hands down, the Motorola MILESTONE is one of the best smartphones on the market today. Even if a tad heftier than what we would have liked, the build quality is great and the device sports awesome functionality, including capable browser and probably the best camera found on Android phones today...

The smart phone for the user who wants everything, including a dodgy gold trim

from CNET (6 years ago)

The Motorola Milestone is a fast, powerful and feature-packed smart phone with a stunning screen and great connectivity. The slide-out keyboard is as flat as a pancake, we still pine for the missing Google Maps Navigation feature, and it lacks the style of the iPhone or the Palm Pre, but we can'... More


Has a very industrial look and feel to it

from Techland (6 years ago)

By now you've seen Verizon's iDon't/DROID Does campaign on TV or on the streets. The first commercial can be found here. It's a bit tongue-in-cheek and Verizon has admitted this, but it does highlight a handful of things that the iPhone clearly cannot do. It should also serve as a clear indication t... More

The second best phone you can buy right now, after the iPhone

from Gizmodo (6 years ago)

These things are true about Droid: The camera's not great; the keyboard isn't mindblowing; Android 2.0 lacks the polish and multimedia prowess to completely match the iPhone. What's also true is that a killer design, Google's services, Android's exploding app ecosytem, powerful multitasking, a stunn... More

Perfect storm between awesome hardware, great software, and a great network

from BGR (6 years ago)

So, what’s the wrap up, you’re asking right? We absolutely love the Motorola DROID. It’s a perfect storm between awesome hardware, great software, and a great network. That’s not to say it’s for everyone. It isn’t the most consumer-friendly device off the bat and... More

Fun to use and so much more capable

from MobileBurn (6 years ago)

There's no reason to beat around the bush here. I think the Motorola DROID is flat out the best consumer smartphone available on Verizon. The DROID will likely eat into sales of LG's popular enV series of feature phones since it is just as fun to use and so much more capable. The keyboard could have... More

One of the thinnest sideways sliders

from Phone Scoop (6 years ago)

The Droid is already evoking the "love it or hate it" reaction from many people. If there's one thing it's got, it is its own sense of style that stands out from the growing number of look-alike Androids already populating the market. It is rectangular, with sharp edges and strongly resembles the bl... More

The hype and talk around this phone lives up to the expectations

from PhoneArena (6 years ago)

It's almost unfathomable to see Verizon tie the knot with Android – especially seeing how the carrier passed up the iPhone and usually packs on its  applications on smartphones. The obvious comparisons will be made between the DROID and other premier handsets available on the market, incl... More

It's the combination of solid phone, smart user interface

from Wired (6 years ago)

Yet, the phone is endearingly quirky. Tweak the settings to turn on the haptic feedback and you can feel a nice rumble each time you press a button. And then there's the squawking of the word 'drooooiddd' in a robotic monotone when you power up the phone or get a voice message.Overall, Droid makes t... More

Horrible waste

(2 years ago)

I get "your SIM card does not allow you to register on this network" about half the time when trying to connect to my own network. Connecting to wireless can completely drain a full battery in around 20 minutes. I get no connections if I am more than 1 yard from an outside wall in my house. Attempts... More


great durable smartphone

(4 years ago)

I'm not sure what the other users are talking about but I have had this phone since early fall of 2009 and not many issues yet. Yes it might not be fast like these new 4g phones but it beats any blackberry that was released before september 2011 and is more durable and reliable than other flimsy and... More


Devils cellphone

(4 years ago)

This is a curse, I use it for a year and a half now, and it was all good for like half a year, but then it just began to get worse and worse... from all cellphones I had, this is the worst. 1. The phone automaticly press on the screen buttons and many times I'm getting calls from people telling me... More


Worst Cell Phone I've ever owned

(4 years ago)

I have had my Motorola Milestone for just over a year now. This has been the worst phone experience I have ever had. I have had the phone in for multiple repairs between the back light on the screen malfunctioning constantly (even after a repair it is okay for a couple days or a couple weeks then... More
