Just wait for stable version to come out!!
Though no official announcements from MOTOROLA regarding our devices!

I use milestoneoverclock and setcpu app from market which helps me to last my battery longer (with moderate use i.e. twitter,facebook,music,browsing I get battery backup of 2 days). Try these apps and you should have no worries.
As long as USB charging is considered I guess it is problem with your device.
And touchscreen is smooth like charm, I didnt face any problem with it.
Of course, touchscreen is not better than iPhone because iphone uses 60FPS scrolling while android devices use only 15FPS.
If you want scrolling like iphone you need to wait for bootloader to unlock so that we can flash MIUI ROM which offers 60FPS scrolling.

While you enjoy such a big screen there is a trade-off. And if you say office hours, why not simply charge @ your office "and" home?
charger - I have always charged my Moto phones with USB cable, both through desktops and notebooks at work, never a single problem, from my oldest phone which supports charging via USB (V6, Z3, V3x, etc...) to my latest ones (Milestone, Cliq, XT720, Defy), suggest you double check the setting on your phone, or visit your local Moto service for assistance.
touch screen - never having problem when making / receiving calls. Suggest you try to have the monitor actually touching the face, so the phone would sense the phone is on call and locks up the touchscreen.
I've been using the phone for about a month or two now and I'm rather disappointed in this, after reading all the hype that came with this phone.
The 8mp camera, though great, hangs the phone more often than not. The battery life? It only operates during "office hours". Meaning, it doesn't last more than 3/4s of a day. Especially if you're an active user and you want to rely on it to read your newsfeeds and twitter updates, 1/2 to 3/4 day. Tops.
The usb charger, isn't quite a usb charger. I couldn't use it on my macbook nor my dell laptop at work, because I just couldn't find the right pod to plug the charger in to.
When picking up the phone, you either accidentally hang up due to your face touching the hyper-sensitive touch screen or having numbers being pressed all over the place because the keypad would be triggered by accident.
The only redeeming factor about this phone (and this is just one minor factor) is that it syncs its contacts onto google contact, which makes it convenient. But am I willing to give up the rest of the functions this phone's lauded to have just to have this one little convenience? Not a chance.
I guess I'll be headed towards the direction of Apple now, cos I know that at least, my calls don't drop because I pick up the phonecall like I'm supposed to.

"Hey GSM ARENA please edit your review in the section of video playback"
We have tested lots of videos in 720P. It can play 720P .mp4 format videos with its stock player without loosing audio-video synchronisation.
With v-player alpha it can even manages to play 720P .mkv videos (though in .mkv might lag when multitasking otherwise smooth like charm)
(Dont know if thats because of app2sd + FROYO JIT but yes it can play now)
[deleted post]Merry Christmas and cheers for our MILESTONE XT720.
If someone manages to unlock its bootloader, 2.3 Gingerbread is not far away!!!
Don't sell your devices, there are lots of specifications that will be revealed.
-XT720 users believe that there is 512MB RAM in XT720 but because of 2.1 kernel only 256MB is available, devs are working on flashing custom kernel to it and if lucky we can have 512MB RAM too.
-With this 2.2 ROM and app2sd enabled total free INTERNAL MEMORY is whooping 265MB.(Generally which is 160MB on 2.1 ECLAIR)

ruby, 20 Dec 2010I 've been using this phone and m very satisfied. I used Iphone 3g for 2yrs and now bought xt7... moreTo be honest, I didn't find much differences between Android 2.0 vs. 2.1. But for 2.1 vs. 2.2, 2.2 offers:
- app2SD, which means the user can store the apps in the memory card instead of the phone's memory, which has about 150mb only. (soon you shall find out you won't have enough space to store all the apps you want)
- ability to play flash, as right now the default browser doesn't support watching any video. There is a dedicated Youtube for mobile but selections / available video are (way) less than the original ones.
I have the XT720, and I would say the upgrades are "nice to have", but I'm still quite happy with the phone.
