Another observation with XT720: JPEG compression is high on default camera - 8MP picture is about 1.5MB.

Picture quality/sharpness is definitely improved with highest quality JPEG compression.
i want buy milestone xt720 ??!!
where is update 2.2 for it ??!!!
GSMArena, please correct the mistake about the phone's Ram. It has 256 Mb of Ram, not 512 Mb. I saw this on Motorola's site. The CPU of this phone is 550 MHZ, not 720.
Motorola engineers have racked their brains for the first time to create a mobile phone which can be called high end. Otherwise they are the dying breed with their "popular" clamshells
There seems to software update soon for the Xt720 but they don't seem to specify what will be fixed!

Ok about the 720p video, you need to buy a really good (class 6-10) sd card for it to work smoothly. The camera won't work without an sd card, and the one inside produces jerky 720p video. I think that having an Android with a point & shoot replacement, is worth the extra money.
I am planning to buy this phone and noticed it had 'a-gps' which said it required a data plan. But I was wondering if I install Garmin moblie on my phone with maps will I still need a data plan for it to work? When I installed Garmin moblie on my old...
