I emailed motorola yesterday and got this back:

the second and third issues were about the camera stills and 720p video quality.
Was briefly on the Gadget Show on Channel 5 last night up against the iphone 4's camera, camera no where near as good as the iphones 5 megapixel & the 720p video awful.
this was emailed to motorola 10min ago after recieving this phone today...
Hi, I recently bought the Motorola Milestone XT720 from an online store (as I am in Australia) and I just want to give you a little feedback...(this is what ive posted on a few mobile phone sites/ user opinions)..
"ive had the phone for like half a day and i so wish i did not buy it... 8mp pics are average at best, HD video is unusable as it is extremely jerky(one of the main selling points is the first phone with HDMI out!?!?!), buggy UI, will not play mp3s????, laggy UI, photos go missing or dont save, radio does not work without headphones.. sorry barelyyyy works! (yes it is spose to fuction without)and the whole front side of the phone is made out of plastic/cheap fake chrome although reviews have stated the entire phone is made out of metal..
first and last motorola i ever buy...
going straight to ebay
I really did have high hopes for this phone, in what was spose to be a high end android smartphone and considering the money I paided for it im really disapointed.
got a reply back today.... a generic automated response saying i need to email motorola AU...
customer service is as good as there products!
