this is good review but at last gsmarena taint this review with mention other cheap phone
why they compare milestone with n97 or other weak phones (except nexus) !!???? shame
however n97 even cant beat moto dext
Still can't understand why GSM Arena has to bring the almighty brand into the review of Milestone....worst yet, seemed GSM Arena digged very hard to find "advantage" of Nxx over Milestone.
One of them being the price. First of all, N97 is x months old, vs. Milestone is about a month old (where I live).
Secondly, GSM Arena emphasized the fact BOTH N97 & N900 are being sold "less" than Milestone.
Mind to share with me where you get such data? I just checked the biggest chain in HK, which sells unlock phones without contract at MSRP.
No price for N900 yet, still, will N900 be sold for "less" than N97? I doubt so.
ace, 27 Jan 2010I currently have a bb tour with sprint...I was thinking of getting a new line and buying this ... moreIf you read the posts earlier, even I mentioned many times:
Droid = CDMA
Milestone = GSM
If you get a Milestone, it will only work with AT&T or T-mobile in USA. If you want such device to work with Verizon, you have to get the Droid from Verizon, no choice.
thanks very much gsmarena for full review milestone
and hope to write review for dext and other new moto phone soon
Droid Gets Overclocked to 1.1 GHz
Thanks to the guys at Alldroid, the Motorola Droid just got its processor overlocked and can now run at speeds as high as 1.1GHz. The ARM Cortex A8 Processor in the Droid typically runs at 550MHz so that's exactly double the frequency. To be honest, the guys who did the overclocking actually said 800GHz is actually the .... .
You can learn how to overclock your Droid here.....
I currently have a bb tour with sprint...I was thinking of getting a new line and buying this phone unlocked...but I see there isn't anything on the spec sheet about cdma...but the droid is with vzw which is cdma...does anyone know the deal... Also I was wondering if I should get this or should I wait for the "rumored" htc supersonic...I love my blackberry but I use to have a g1 and I miss my android OS ( and I really didn't like the samsung moment) any suggestions????
Thanks to GSM Arena, and after x years of waiting, we finally received a full review on a Motorola phone!
Good job! (not much can be criticized anyway!)
I'm surprised to read everywhere how expensive MILESTONE is against other smartphones.
In Argentina I bought it for U$300 but I'm obligated to keep a U$30 monthly fee for my calls for 18 months. Nokia's and Samsung's smartphones, at least down here are WAAAAAAAY more expensive, almost 50-70% more. Even an LG without Wifi is 50% more expensive!
has anyone else noticed that the keyboard for this handset is wrong? the "Y" and "Z" are in the opposite places making this not a QWERTY style keyboard but a QWERTZ keyboard. either these photos are wroing, or someone at motorola is dyslexic.
It is most common for handset keyboards to soften over time, like the T-Mobile G1 handset, similar to the new Milestone.
I've read that the keypad becomes softer (making it easier to use) over time. Anybody out there that has had this phone for a while care to comment?
Alldroid.com did the overclocking, they got the CPU to 1.1 GHz but it was only stable around 800MHz.
Oh yeah, Firefox browser coming to Droid/Milestone soon.
