So, I own it for about 3 weeks. Camera/HD video is a disaster. Photos are acceptable in sunlight, but seems blurry in any other conditions. And by acceptable, I mean, barely acceptable. Not better than 5Mpx N82 from 3 years ago, that I still own. Video is 19fps, and jerky. Seems that current firmware was thrown on it at the last moment without any testing. I will wait for 2.2 and 720MHz update, hoping that camera performance improves, otherwise, will sell it.
I bought it for the camera and xenon flash and in combination it makes good photos of close objects but everything else is underexposed, aggresively processed and just not in tack sharp focus. This was a huge dissapointment because I come from SE Cyber Shot phones and am not used to such poor camera performance. I can see the photo right after taking it and it looks ok but then it gets processed and saved and it's botched. Otherwise, Android is a new experience, phone working fine, processor good enough, a real toy if needed and am not sure I could switch back to Symb or WinMo etc. To be honest, this is a great phone, just do not go for it for the camera as main objective. And, oh, HD movie: very jerky.
Does anyone know if this phone has a graphics chip like the original milestone? or does it just have the processor?
8MP, Digital Zoom with Xenon Flash
Automatic Touch to focus with easy panorama, face detection, multi-shot (6 shots in a row), face filter, red eye reduction, camera shake prevention), scene controls and effects
Believe me i'm not a huge fan of MOTO not even a regular one and after 9/10 years using mobile phone only used Samy's phones(99% it will continue 'till end of my journey!).
But,hey!is this phone is some low or mid range?!
the point is for sake of your love with mobile devices,you 2369 peoples('till now)that voted this phone,are you certain the rate of all 3 factors(Design,Features,Performance)of this phone stands at 8.5?!
from Specs it seems it's only second to it self(i admit i don't have direct experience,but my bro,the die hard MOTO fan may get one soon).
i can't believe(even if told by MOTO's own exec's!!)the rating is what you get from this phone.
hi, i m using this phone, initially, i'd problem with the Media Gallery browser, but it seems that it isnt disturbing anymore, and i've thousands of posts here, i dont understand that why ppl are underestimating the phone's capability? i agree that since the phone memo. isnt enuff due to which we ppl cant install too many apps for this phone is concerned...but in general, the display, screen resolution is good (please dont ever compare this phone with Apple Iphone 4, since the price difference is double than this cellie)
May i know whether this phone will receive Android Froyo update??
please let me know asap
m1l4d, 11 Aug 2010This is great but cpu appears to be a bit week. Anyone having any speed issues? It is laggy or... morefor me,i think my milestone xt 720 is smooth enough,much better than nokia symbian.

THE UK VERSION is 720mhz but UNDER-CLOCKED by Motorola to 550mhz, so your setting WILL say 550mhz.
Apparently Motorola may!!!??? release a firmware to set the processor to 720mhz but is afraid it will reduce the battery life.

About the CPU, it has 550 MHZ, not 720 MHZ. I saw this also on their site.
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 today.
