Very disappointed. I thought this was the cheapest phone with the sufficient features and performance at a required level of quality I'd need. I loved it had a QWERTY keyboard.

Unfortunately these phones are very glitchy. At the first week of use it started to reboot randomly (it usually happens when I use the QWERTY keyboard); this problem is most likely a hardware flaw and it's been reported extensively on forums. With time it becomes unreliable and slow.

A month later, another issue that many users have also experienced appeared: the physical keyboard started to fail (keys become non responsive, the phone types duplicated letters, etc.). I bought this phone because I thought it would be useful to have the best of both worlds (virtual and physical keyboard), but now I don't want to use the QWERTY keyboard as it is becoming unusable and annoying.

It just sucks, don't buy it.

I have the XT862. It is carried by nTelos. East coast USA. THE PHONE IS HONESTLY A FANTASTIC PHONE AND VALUE. The quality With the camera and the video are undeniable. I only get concerned that it seems to heat up a lot with prolonged use. Must phones will though. It can be serviced either via GSM Or CDMA. NICE PHONE AND BETTER THAN ALOT ON MARKET NOW IN 13. HANDS DOWN.

I used to love this phone, but now the keyboard is not working properly: sometimes it misses key, others it doubles the key pressed.

It's an excellent mobile, the only improvement would be increasing 512MB RAM to 1GB :-)

> In reply to Eisley @ 2012-07-30 01:31 from L88d - click to readThe PowerVR SXG540 from Milestone 3 is more powerful than Adreno 205.

Adreno 205 is comparable with PowerVR SXG530, which equips the older Milestone 2.

I Have a Milestone 2 with PowerVR SXG530 and a Xperia Mini Pro with Adreno 205, they have equivalent performance, very close.

This phone is amazing, I'll never let go of qwerty KB, 512Mb of RAM isn't so much, but it's enough to run clean the android OS, with a dual-core processor, this phone is all I ever wante

Considering only relevant things, please help me:

A bit hard choise: Xperia Pro or MM3?

In terms of GPU, for web browsing and ~very~ casual gamming which is better: PowerVR SGX540 or Adreno 205. By how much?

I know MM3 has Dual Core processor, a bigger res screen and 1080p@30fps video capture, but these are not my concerns. So, please help me decide :)

- L.

Btw, the slide keyboard on the MM3 is as the MM2(loose)? Or this new is better?

Thanks you'll!
