In spite of its elegant design and an improved keyboard, overall the Motorola MILESTONE 2 is not so much of an improvement on its predecessor. This model is criticized for its tatty-looking, bloated MotoBlur widgets, average battery life, poor video file support and for many the keyboard is a little too small to be convenient to send a lot of SMS, emails, or spend lot of time surfing the internet.
Motorola Milestone 2 is also criticized for its dual flash 5 megapixel camera, according to the users it is flat and mediocre, and the 720p HD video isn’t a market leader. Even its battery life is not considered to be too good. Its RAM is only 256 as compared to 2 GB in Blackberry which is really disappointing.
