The average consumer who is out for a smartphone will really enjoy the MILESTONE
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 come to the inevitable conclusion that, despite our perceived flaws, we think the average consumer who is out for a smartphone will really enjoy the MILESTONE provided they’re okay with dedicating some time to what is for some a bit of a difficult learning curve. As for the nerds, it&rsqu... Full review
True milestone device for a troubled, former majesty that has lived without glory long enough
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. On the other hand, the MILESTONE is not exactly exemplary in terms of advanced software, due to the fact it lacks certain extra features that make the CDMA version more attractive (Facebook integration, Google Maps Navigation etc.)

The smart phone for the user who wants everything, including a dodgy gold trim
Has a very industrial look and feel to it
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 that any rumor of the iPhone moving to the network is now squashed. Or they're confident enough that Apple won't hold a grudge. The former scenario is more likely. (See the best travel gadgets of 2009.)

The second best phone you can buy right now, after the iPhone
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 stunning screen and Verizon's network still make it the second best phone you can buy right now, after the iPhone.
At the same time, there's reason to pause. Android is evolving more rapidly than any other smartphone platform, both in terms of the hardware and software. When HTC's Hero came... Full review
Perfect storm between awesome hardware, great software, and a great network
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 it’s going to take some time and a whole bunch of improvements before we think Android can totally compete in the consumer space like others can, but Android is getting there slowly and this device in general couldn’t be a better way to show it off. There’s obviously some compro... Full review
Fun to use and so much more capable
One of the thinnest sideways sliders
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 black monolith from "2001: A Space Odyssey." As far as monoblock-style touch phones goes, its unique.
It feels very good in the hand. Though a bit on the heavy side, the materials feel top notch and the construction is sturdy and strong. There is a mix of metallic surfaces, plastic surfa... Full review
The hype and talk around this phone lives up to the expectations
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, including ones that are already part of the Android lineup. Verizon has definitely got itself a jewel in the form of the Motorola DROID and will most likely provide some much needed attention to the open platform. In doing so, it shows Verizon's commitment in lessening their control on how a phone sh... Full review
It's the combination of solid phone, smart user interface
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 the iPhone 3G look a little tired, the BlackBerry boring, and the Palm Pre an after-thought. The Droid doesn't have a single "wow" feature. Rather, it's the combination of solid phone, smart user interface, and Verizon's kick-ass network that makes the Droid a cut above most smartphone... Full review
