Product Description

Motorola MILESTONE XT720 is an Android 2.1 smartphone, ready to take great images with its 8MP camera with Xenon flash. This really looks to be the most camera-centric Android handset to date, especially when you throw 720p HD video recording into the deal. Other than that, the Motorola MILESTONE XT720 seems to be a very good looking handset with characteristic design, large 3.7-inch, 480x854 resolution capacitive screen, HDMI interface, 3.5mm jack, and all other kinds of stuff.

Costumer Reviews

I got this phone via one day shipping Nov 5th. I just got back from the post office from mailing it back to Amazon (Nov 9). During my FULL three days of ownership I must say that the phone is indeed a very nice phone. I will list some pro's and con's I found for the phone...


-Android 2.1 (Eclair) Pretty decent (this is listed in my con's as well)

-8GB micro sd card (I did not get around to using this as I have my 16gb card from my other phone.)

-Nice bright screen. Also it is rumored that it is made with gorilla glass (so it will be hard to scratch up.)

-Sound quality from music and phone calls are nice, although the music volume could stand a tad bit improvement.

-When navigating through the phone to find things there is little to no lagging.

-Apps are easy to install from market. (Must have internet connection to access it).

-Camera and Video Recording qualities are decent.

-Wi-fi connection avail... (To my knowledge, per jessica from tmobile, they do not charge you if you use your OWN wi-fi connection, so thats a plus.)

-This has a speed of 720 mh so it is close to 1gh like the droid x and other phone models.

-Overall look of the phone is awesome, I took it out in public once and got loads of compliments.

There are more PRO's, but I cant remember them all, I will update later when they come to mind...


-While the Android 2.1 is nice, everyone on the motorola and mobile forums are waiting for the Android 2.2 update that way simple things such as saving photos and apps to memory card will be easy as pie.

-The shutter sound everytime you take a picture. Even if you have it on silent/vibrate and take pictures then, the shutter is always on and loud as heck to boot. This is definitely not the phone to have when trying to sneak a picture of something because it will get you caught,lol.

-While the screen is indeed nice, it is also a magnet for fingerprints and smears. I found myself constantly wiping it off. Tried to use a stylus to eliminate fingerprints, and its not calibrated for that, FINGERS ONLY! The back of the phone which seems rubbery is fingerprint haven as well.

-Your apps save to the phone's memory instead of the sd card.

-Your pictures also save to the phone's memory and have no option of being saved to the sd card (trust me I have looked.)

-Unless your a programmer and can write scripts, there is no way to get rid of some of the pre-installed applications.

-Last but not LEAST the VERY REASON that I RETURNED MY PHONE..... The battery sucks major ones..... I believe I had a faulty battery as I got it on Friday and from friday at 4pm until Monday 5am it has been on the charger for over 50 hours and yet the highest max for th batter was at 54%. I figured the 54% was enough to do a motorola software update (via settings on the phone) BOY was I WRONG! My phone has not been the same since. I had it on the charger during the update and the led lights came on, the moto logo would appear every ten minutes or so, but it wouldnt load up... I figured I would do recovery mode, was able to pull it up, but because I was lacking battery juice so I couldnt go through with it. I dont understand how a phone can be on the charger left alone for at least 6hours with no usage at all,and still not even be 15% charged.

Aside from the battery issue, as I am absolutely PO'D about because I had to spend $15 to ship it back to amazon, now I gotta wait a whole week or so for them to get it and refund my money so that I can purchase a different one.Not to mention since I was not able to power the phone back on I was not able to factory reset it before sending it back. With the refund I will get another xt720, as aside from the battery issue (which i believe was faulty, plus I will be ordering a backup battery) I liked the phone. I think the phone is just what I want and need in a phone right now..

A tidbit for those who are ordering from Amazon. I am not sure if it was just MY PHONE or if they recycle parts or whatever. But you will definitely want to review all of the items and check for usage before using them. As I was packing up my phone to send it back to them I noticed that the manual didnt look that crisp(looked used/handled before), the wall charger they gave me was scratched up and the prongs rusted at the bottom (took a picture of this, not sure how clear it is though.)and, the box itself was not "sealed" as most phones are, nor did it look new. I overlooked all of this because I was in AWE to have a new phone, but glad that I was able to check it before sending it back.. My thing is, if I am paying $400+ dollars for a phone, I expect EVERYTHING in the box to be brand spanking new, Amazon totally dropped the ball on this one. From this point on, I will be checking everything from them PRIOR to use.

I have purchased this phone a month back and it took the international logistic arrangements almost 2 weeks to let me use this beauty. I am from India and got it from as it was available at 100 USD cheaper cost than what is market rate here. From last two weeks I am completely hooked to the phone and has used almost all the features and installed tons of software from android market place. Before buying a phone I knew that the phone is having Android 2.1 and the version has few issues which google has promised that they will clear them in the next release i.e. 2.2. But After buying a phone, before it comes to me, motorola has published a model wise schedule of android up-gradation. To my utmost surprise, they have denied the upgrade for the XT720 and ruthlessly stated that there will be no upgrade for the device. I will suggest anybody buying this phone to be informed about motorola's upgrade schedule and check their requirements. The phone is a real good piece of hardware and android version it carries simply rocks!
