Motorola DROID Milestone 2 Android Smartphone Features

The best just got better with the Motorola Milestone2. Its more of everything. More speed, more memory, more media, more features, more capable. Twice as fast as the original, enhanced MotoBLUR that brings all your social networks, emails and messages together and the latest version of Android with Flash 10 support, wireless media sharing and even the ability to turn your phone into a wireless hotspot.

For:

  • Well built
  • Keyboard is great to use
  • MotoBLUR adds to the experience unobtrusively

Against:

  • Keyboard slide isn't spring assisted
  • TFT screen isn't as vivid as other displays
  • Looks too much like the original

What we say:

Not a rehash, the Milestone2 ups the stakes on the original considerably. The new processor gets a speed bump to 1GHz, while the original was no slouch, the Milestone2 now flys through apps, and the extra on board memory gives plenty of space to run lots of apps or have graphic heavy web pages open. The new keyboard makes use of the wasted space on the original while also adding gently domed keys, making typing much more pleasurable. MotoBLUR is also now included, letting you aggregate and bring all your social networks. Just like the original, the Milestone2 comes with the latest version of Android available, which brings features such as wireless hotspot capability, speed boosts and lots of other tweaks and improvements. If you loves the Milestone, then you'll love this, its everything that was great about the original, but improved, refined & polished to bring it bang up to date.

Superb

Motorola got the form factor pretty much perfect first time around, and wiht the v.2 revision sorted out the internals. I had been looking for a replacement for my Milestone 1 for about a year because it was slowing to the point of being comatose. I was worried that the M2 would be much the same, as on paper it doesn't look that much more powerful. But the extra RAM seems to do the trick. I've now re-installed all the apps I had to abandon for lack of space on the M1 and the M2 is still motoring along. What can I say - a smartphone without a keyboard is just plain dumb!

Awesome Underdog!

Superb build quality; great keyboard; clever motoblur skin over standard android. Very swift navigation through menu system- no lag. Great speakerphone. I love its subtlety and understated style- no flashiness here. Lovely gloss finish on the front frame and soft-touch at the rear. Dirt Cheap for what it is. At this price I feel Ive almost stolen it!

milestone 2

iphones are overrated! This phone is great value for money, easy to use and solid. I dropped it already and not a scratch, if it was an iphone it would have been the death of it!!
