We'll have to wait for someone who has tried it out for himself. Also try other Moto forums, so whoever gets to answer you first...

You are right on the part of Motorolla. The other day I tried the new HTC Touch Diamond 2 & I’ll tell you it was my best experience till date using Winmo 6.5!!! Two distinct features which I liked the most were Handwriting recognition & the lock screen where I could see my upcoming tasks,messages,emails everthing on the main screen!!!

There are phones especially designed for rough treatmant. But you want a hi-tech phone, and I don't think any of them can take the abuse very well. The only plus I can think of for Moto Droid/Milestone is that it is the only hi-end phone with metal build, all other are plastic, so in that sense it could take a stronger blow and not brake. But screens are always the issue as they are big, and should be taken care of. So, ultimately, I guess any phone with a good armour case will do for you.

Every phone I've ever owned ended up severely scratched, dented and dinged. I'm an active person, and am pretty rough with my cell phones. Build quality is very important to me.
I'm currently looking for a new phone, and the droid is one of three I'm considering. Only reason I posted here was to get some feedback on real-world usage, I don't care about which phone is "best", I don't care much about the brands, I don't care which has the fastest processor.
Dude Motorola Own, Nokia N900 is 181g in weight.... thats all say how crap nokia are.... rather not - dont slate other phones unless Motorola are slated!.... whos testing 4G in the UK ... NOT NOKIA!... this phone has sold 600,000 in US not bad for a crap phone :S MOTOROLA ARE BACK WITH STYLE.... if they were so crap why is it the 1st 2.0 android phone.. google must of thought yeh decent handset

Two of you will wait for better CPUs and better corners.

who said i never touch a 1GHz phone ? sarcasm ? even you guys cant tell me your sources to compare snapdragon with ARM 550MHz then how can we understand you?
you complained my comments with your opinion without sources as if you were right everything n better than me, my comments are my opinion, of course your opinion is diff so you shouldnt push the other peoples's opinion..if i said 1 GHz snap is faster than ARM 550MHz, so what? why did you argue with me whereas you cant tell me official source to prove that ARM 550MHz is better than snapdragon?just opinion again and again...
then you bashed me" i fight with common sense, iam a little younger and bla...bla...."
you guys annoyed me!! yes you are very smart!! enough? yes i will follow your advice whereas your sources are none, enough? milestone is better than x10, enough?yes i fight with common sense, enough? yes iam little yourger, enough? why do you guys never relize it?
iam very confused
I'm very tempted to purchase the Droid (milestone), but after searching a few forums I found a few complaints about the phone that I was wondering if anyone here had experienced.
First of all, the batter cover on some units are loose, they can actually slip off while in your pocket. From what I read it's an easy fix, but I'm wondering about the quality of the phone now.
Has anyone been using a leather holster type case for this phone? I've read of two cases where there was abnormal wear on the corners of the phone because of the case. (Again, this is a quality issue with the phone).
Lastly, Motorola is working on a fix for the camera of the droid to deal with an issue with the auto-focus, there was an error in the programing.
Motorola has stated that the camera has a waxy coating on it from the factory, cleaning the lens will fix much of the issues everyone is having with it.
alex, 20 Nov 2009What's different between milestone and droid features??Droid has Google navigation, and Milestone has pinch to zoom. But the real difference is in network technology. Droid is for USA networks only, and Milestone is GSM. So if you live in Europe it is only Milestone for you.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Well, first of all Vinny is not a Moto fan. He is going for N900. And you can see that the two of us are not haters, otherwise we would be bashing each other phones. But we get along just fine. I fully respect and understand his wish to buy N900, as I understand that you would like to have X10. No problems there.
After all, I did write a nice post againts bashing X10 in SE forum, and some of your SE friends supported me and congratulated me. But you haven't said a word...
That shows a lot.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I might have gotten a little harsh with you sometimes.
but you kept insisting on the speed of the CPU (saying that you never had the phone in hands) and not taking in account that EVERY review online state that it's the fastest android ever made.
All the statement I did about the X10 and the snapdragons were all sarcasm to try to make you understand my point.
And I think that's what annoyed Cain as well: you complaining about the speed when every blog and reviewer were saying it was the fastest android out yet.
I'm gonna try to stop picking on you and being so harsh with you as you seem a little younger (no offense here) and seem to take things a little to intensively.
we're just talking about phone here ;)
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I think you're getting me confused with somebody else here.
the only argument I had here was about that comparison between the X10 and the milestone.
And it's only be with you.
Except the post where I put the video of the X10 (and even in that post, I end the post saying the X10 will probably be a good phone once it gets out) I NEVER, I insist NEVER batched on the X10.
If I did, please show me time and date and I'll be more than happy to apologize.
Also, The only comments I did about the milestone were about my impressions of the phone (which I had in hands) and even in those posts, I was careful about the words I was using. I was always saying " to me", "it's a personal taste" etc...
So I ask you the same thing: Show me the time and date where I said to somebody here something like: "you're wrong! the keyboard is awesome!", or anything else like that.
I dare you.
If I ever did, again, I'll apologize.
You're getting pretty aggressive about that whole discussion.
You need to chill out.
Some people DID compare the X10 with the milestone to bash about it.
the only times I did so was with sarcasme to make my point with you.
As I said before, I'm sure the X10 will be a wonderful phone once it gets out.
But the subject here is the motorola milestone.
And IT IS RIGHT NOW the fastest android ever made.
Vinny, 19 Nov 2009I think the fact that he got his post deleted proves your point. but you'll see... he's gonna... moreif you are a motorola fan then you bash snapdragon, it means you will kill your self soon
you see..that vinny start it again at first
you look funny and stupid
you knew that your video of x10 was a very old prototoype then you use the x10 ptototype perfomance to bash final x10 perfomance is out in february,what a shame!!read the date!!
you and cain said to me that i cant compare x10 with milestone coz x10 is not out yet but In fact you do compare x10 with milestone!
iam a big SE fan but iam not blind...i always read every phone review and i watch the video many times updately or i touch and play the phone directly, x10 got much...much better than before, of course you wont know it coz you will not do it for us..you will hide a good one but you will show us the bad one...
but till now, both of you cant tell me why omap 3430 ARM 550MHz is better than 1GHz snapdragon officially and specificly....then dont too much barking here
