Motorola MILESTONE 3 Review

The Motorola MILESTONE 3 is the new addition to the MILESTONE line of phones (also known as DROID in other countries). The phone measures 60mm x 115.8mm x 13.7mm and it weighs 165g. The original DROID was a very promising phone as it was flagship starter for Android OS. The DROID 2 did not achieve much appreciation. Now the MILESTONE 3 (DROID 3) is all set to make up lost ground.

Like other MILESTONE phones, even this new addition has a larger frame thanks to the large display. The display measures 4.0 inches and has a display resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. The HD display is truly the USP of this phone. You will have no troubles in viewing the phone outdoors. Another cool feature on board is the microHDMI-out port. There is a camera of 1.3 megapixels present at the front for video calling. The physical keyboard is truly one of the most user-friendly ones that we have ever seen on any smartphone. Switching the phone on its back reveals the 8 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash.

The Motorola MILESTONE 3 is powered with dual-core 1GHz OMAP4 processor. It has also got 512MB of RAM. The MOTOBLUR interface is present over the Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread OS. The internal storage of 16GB and the external memory can detect up to 32GB of microSD.

The 8 megapixel camera is capable of taking crisp photos that are rich in detail. You will be surprised to know that the camera is capable of taking even more impressive photos indoors with artificial lighting then taking photos in natural light. On the Motorola MILESTONE 3, you record 1080p HD videos at 29fps. The onboard music player is simple and comes with equalizer presets. The audio output is quite good. As far as video playback is concerned, you can enjoy movies of 1920 x 1080 resolution without experiencing any choppiness.

Browsing on the Motorola MILESTONE 3 is smooth and it can easily compete with top-notch smartphones. Since it is enabled with Flash, you can experience desktop-like browsing. You can connect to the web through 3G and Wi-Fi. The phone has tons of apps like Amazon Kindle, City ID, NFL Mobile, Skype, and Quickoffice to name a few. The 1540 mAh battery gives a talk time of over 8 hours and standby time of nearly 300 hours.

Motorola Droid Pro Review

Motorola Droid Pro XT610 is the newer version of the Motorola Droid phone from Verizon Wireless. The phone weighs 134g and measures 119 x60 x 11.7 mm. The form factor of the phone is very similar to that of a BlackBerry phone. The exterior of the phone is made up of hard plastic which makes it very durable.

The display of Motorola Droid Pro measures 3.1 inches. The capacitive touchscreen display has got a display resolution of 320 x 480 pixels and is capable of displaying 16 million colors. The display occupies the major area of the phone at the front and the remaining part is occupied by the QWERTY keyboard. Typing on this keyboard is not easy but with frequent usage you will be able to create text messages and emails easily.

On the left side of the Motorola Droid Pro, you can find the volume rocker and the microUSB port. On the right side, you can a programmable key. At the top, you can find the power button and 3.5mm audio jack. At the rear is located the 5 megapixel camera.

The internal memory of the phone is 8GB and comes with 512 MB RAM and 2GB ROM. The external memory of the phone can read up to 32GB of microSD and comes with 8GB card. The phone’s snappy performance is all because of the 1GHz processor and PowerVR SGX530 GPU.

The 5 megapixel camera of Motorola Droid Pro disappointed us as the snaps appeared to be blurry and grainy. When lighting conditions were good, it could take decent photos. You can record DVD quality videos on this phone. The video player can easily play video range of video formats including DivX and XviD files. The stock Android music player comes with simple features.

The stock Android web browser loads pages without delay. You can access the web using 3G and Wi-Fi internet connectivity. The standard Li-Ion battery of 1420mAh gives a standby time of over 310 hours on 3G and talk time of nearly 7 hours on 3G.

Motorola Droid X Review

Verizon Wireless has introduced a new Motorola phone with Android OS – Motorola Droid X M8810. This phone is the successor to the original Motorola Droid A855 that was released last year. The phone weighs 155g and measures 127.5 x 65.5 x 9.9 mm. It comes with a TFT capactive touchscreen display that measures 4.3 inches and has a FWVGA display resolution of 480 x 854 pixels and is capable of displaying up to 16m colors.  It goes without saying that phone is bulky; however, the guys at Motorola have tried their best to make the phone as thin as possible.

Below the display of Motorola Droid X, there are four physical buttons namely Menu, Home, Back and Search. On the left side of the phone, you can find the microUSB and micro HDMI video port.  On the top, there is power and display lock button along with the 3.5mm audio jack.  On the right side, there is a volume controller and camera launcher. At the rear, there is an 8MP camera with flash and external speaker. The microSDHC slot can be accessed by opening the back panel.
The Motorola Droid X runs on Android 2.1 OS which provides the user with 7 home screens. In the late summer, Motorola has announced that the OS will be updated to Android 2.2 (Froyo). The internal memory of the phone is 8GB with 512MB RAM. It can detect up to 32GB of memory. The phone is powered with OMAP3630 720Mhz processor and PowerVR SGX530 GPU which produces snappy performance.

You can setup IMAP, POP3 and Exchange email accounts. You can make use of social networking sites like Facebook, MySpace, Picasa, Photobucket, and Twitter on Motorola Droid X. The home screen allows you to add messages widgets which will let you see your text messages and emails. You can also add social networking widget on the home screen to get update from all your buddies. The News widget helps you fetch latest news from Digg, Fox Sports, Reuters, and USA Today.

The 8MP autofocus camera with dual LED flash is excellent as it takes amazing photographs in any lighting conditions. It has got features like geo-tagging, 8 scene modes, and 8 color effects, face detection, etc. Videos can be recorded at 1280 x 720 pixels at 24 frames per second and also at lower resolutions at 30 frames per second. The stock Android 2.1 music player has got features like album art and equalizer presets. The sound through the loudspeaker was not loud enough and even the sound output through boxed headset was found to be good. We felt the same even when we listened to the FM Radio on the Motorola Droid X.

You can connect to the web on 3G at 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and at 2.0 Mbps HSUPA and also through WLAN. The Webkit browser has features like multitouch pinch-to-zoom, double tap for zooming, allows you to open 8 windows at a time, bookmarks and 3D side-to-side scrolling. The YouTube videos that are embedded on webpage are opened separately on the YouTube player. The other feature present on the phone includes Bluetooth and assisted GPS. The standard Li-Po 1540 mAh battery gives a talk time of 8 hours and over 9 days of stand-by time.

You can even try using sunset mode or night mode to take snaps in low light conditions. If there is enough natural light available, you can turn off the flash.

6. Shutter sound

For privacy reasons the law has stated that the cell phone camera must play an audible signal before it takes a snap. If you find the sound to be irritating or loud, you can make use of third party application such as SilentSnap to turn off the camera shutter sound. You can search for such an app on the Android Market.
