The Motorola XT720 is unashamedly a media phone.

Add in HD video recording and top if off with a HDMI port, which lets you connect the XT720 directly to your HD TV. For: 8 mega-pixel camera & Xenon flash work really well Captures great quality HD video Built like a tank, feels really well made Against: Small built in storage Not a small phone Xenon flash can drain the battery quickly What we say: “ The Milestone XT720 is the best Android camera phone bar none.

1.0 out of 5 stars It's not bad but..... 24 Sep 2010
By Momfer
Let me start with, the build quality and general feel are excellent for this phone. And as per Motorola quirkyness it has a somewat off beat design. Call quality and reception are fairly good.

If your not a to demanding Android user this phone might just fit the bill.
Resason for me it has only 2 stars, Motorola's Lack off software upgrades, (As i write this phone has no v2.2 froyo) And thus can't move app's from it's rather tiny phone storage space to the Memory card.

I would suggest, look at HTC or Samsung first before you deside to buy this phone.

26-11-2010 Update!
It is now known that the XT720 will NOT be updated to Android v2.2, Very poor performance from Motorola there as the phone is only released for 6 months.
Motorola does promise to update other phones, Milestone and the Defy for example although Motorola said the same for the XT720 If you do consider buying a Motorola be warned that the update policy of Motorola can bite you........

3.0 out of 5 stars XT720 experiences in Kuwait 15 Sep 2010
1. HDMI connection faulty - phone hangs - had to power off by removing battery cover for the phone to work
2. Camera sound cannot be disabled
3. Time delay after clicking the button and image shoot
4. Terribly slow for a smartphone
5. New contacts added only to the Google account and not to the phonebook
6. SD card automatically unmounts when connected to my Vista Home Premium; need to shut down and restart phone for the SD card to work again.
7. 8GB standard SD card too small for a 8 MP camera + HD camcorder. - doesn't stack upto iphone.

1. Powerful flash
2. Sharp images
3. Loads of features
4. Large Android app market

Swift response from Motorola support but of little help.

4.0 out of 5 stars More a signpost than a milestone 16 Aug 2010
Motorola released a software update which dramatically improves the performance of the phone. This boost in speed makes the phone handle a lot better than before - the camera shutter release is particularly more responsive. Generally this has removed some of the cludgy feeling that XT720 had prior to the update. As a result of the performance boost I have added an extra star.

-----Original Review-----
I am fairly unusual for an Android phone owner - I have an iPhone 4 as my main phone and would have bought a second one if it were not for two reasons it is significantly cheaper than the iphone 4 - about 2/3rds the price sim free and I need an android phone to test software on.

The milestone arrived in a neat package which slid open like the original Razr packaging; sliding it apart revealed the Milestone with a large screen with a gunmetal surround and was a nice introduction; it would also make it a good gift. After charging it up I slipped in a sim and turned it on; I was presented with a fairly bright screen and a phone that has an angled bevel that looks like a stylised folder on its side. The back of the phone is a rubberised paint which gives it a nice feel - and stops it sliding about. On inserting the sim the phone stepped me through the basics of setting up my gmail accounts; and I was easily able to download a twitter client.

Andronid v iPhone is a tale of two worlds; the android world is more user configurable and has less control but with that comes a cumbersome interfaces and potentially confusing setup - you wouldnt give an android phone to your mum it would have to be an iPhone.
