I HATE MOTOROLA!.. seriously, had two devices, V3x Razr and Flipout. seemed like good prices at the start but they fail.. crappy battery life on both phones, VERY poor video camera. (V3x low frame rates) (flipout, Colours blurred) but it is what you get for a moderate price, but honestly even the Samsung GT i550 (something like that) is like 1 million times better and it has Froyo as well as a cheaper price TAG!!!... compare $400 NZD vs. $280 for a phone like that..
Overall I don't like Motorola, Go with other companies that are with android since they've done a better job and care about the consumer

Rizal Murad, 05 Mar 2011I'll never like motorola..!My first phone was Motorola E360 8 years ago. Cheap buth have color screen and metal rim. However, the SMS writing began slowing after 20 characters. I never like Motorola again.

i think atleast for now google should kick in and should release minimum requirements for any device which is planned to be released and should directly release firmware updates like microsoft model and like apple or android users who are feeling neglected will not buy future android devices and ultimately go for ios way . really google you need to tighten the knot , enough free open source now make some rules for everyday popping androids with so many styles, these companies are making joke of smartphone platform.
Honestly I don't even know why this is a big deal for people. You don't buy a low end phone and expect the latest and greatest updates for the device. There were so many people with the original T-Mobile myTouch that kept complaining about not getting Froyo and when they finally recieved it there were countless problems and slowdowns because the phone couldn't handle it. If you bought a Charm, don't expect it to run and do the same stuff that other 1ghz phones can do.
Dumb decision. I'm in the market for a new android phone. Moto just got crossed off the list.
Rizal Murad, 05 Mar 2011I'll never like motorola..!
i like moto
i don't care about update
Sony Ericsson is not doing it either with their x10 phones.
Anonymous, 05 Mar 2011This is why I won't ever buy a android phone :DThis is why I'm considering getting a WP7 Nokia or an iPhone. The update process is a PITA. With an iPhone, I am guaranteed to get updates for two years on the same day the update is released. I'm still inclined to get an LG O3D though just because I want cutting edge technology.
Wow Motorola , you really Sucks in customer support area, my milestone never get the official froyo, i had to use a cooked rom!! thanks god to hackers and modders... i´ll never buy again a motorola , thats why apple is ahead of you , good support...
Surprise! Surprise! This is why I ditched my moto phone last year and will never buy another...
Graz, 04 Mar 2011This is why I won't ever buy a Motorola phone.This is why I won't ever buy a android phone :D
Hardly surpring. What I learned as Motorola Milestone owner is that customer "after service" is more important than the fancy features on the paper during release. For this reason and reason alone, I recomend to avoid Motorola products at all cost.
Now stop crying babes... what is so bad about not getting Froyo?? Eh? Do you actually what the update entails or are you just upset that you're not getting upgraded.... so the sad feeling of having an "old" hand set?!? Come on, be honest... But you know what... BE HAPPY... Android 2.1. is still a great OS, if you would upgrade to 2.2. your mobiles would not cope... so be happy having a smooth running handset with a not so up to date OS instead of a crappy running phone with the latest OS.... I know what I would go for and the Moto flip is pretty cool device... even without Froyo, so stop frowning
Dee, 04 Mar 2011I always thought moto phones were garbage and now I think the company is garbage too! Support... moreWell, actually MOTO phones always have the best quality, even the cheap ones, because MOTO always use metal so, if you think that their phones suck, that is just prejudice... (you can't even compare the obvious flipout vs SE X10 mini pro, I had both and the SE has the most nasty build quality ever!) On the software side, well, that's another story, yeah, this suck and they suck for this! But on the other hand, the other are exactly the same, low end phones never get upgrade... THAT SUCKS!
