The Milestone 2 offers a number of improvements over the original Milestone. It's a good option for those who want an Android phone with a physical keyboard, but they should also consider the HTC Desire Z for its more elegant user experience....

THIS device is really not that blur. It's pretty smart even - especially for the social butterfly types.I'm talking about Motoblur, Motorola's user interface, similar to Samsung's TouchWiz or HTC's Sense.Why Motorola would call it...

Version two has a sleek appearance like many of Motorola's phones, although the design is not as stylish as the Flipout or Milestone XT720. The handset is comfortable to hold, with dimensions of 116mm x 61mm x 14mm. The device retains a physical...

The Motorola Milestone 2 offers a whole heap of features and does what we had hoped - improves on the original version. Social networkers will be happy that MOTOBLUR has been included, and users will be enamoured by the tactile QWERTY keyboard....

This time last year the Motorola Milestone won itself a fair few fans thanks to being one of the few high-spec Android phones to come with a QWERTY keyboard attached to it. The original Milestone certainly wasn't one of the prettiest or most elegant...

It's a bit of a brick, but the Milestone 2 is packed with good things, including the latest Android 2.2 OS, a fine Qwerty keyboard, a good 5Mp camera and Motoblur, which becomes addictive very quickly. But if you can handle the weight, and can live...

When you first see and feel the Milestone 2, it presents itself as a real premium device. It’s not. There is so much potential in this device, being once of the few Android QWERTY sliders in Australia, but it’s let down by the software....

The Motorola Milestone 2 is powerful and packed with features, but the addition of the Motoblur skin doesn't bring enough benefits to warrant the sluggish performance and likelihood that you'll wait longer for Android...

To wrap up, we’re very fond of the Motorola MILESTONE 2. It's a good solid phone, but unfortunately not a great one. With the negatives mainly being MOTOBLUR's hard-wired integration and the keyboard being a touch flat for our taste. The...
