This enhanced version includes widgets for your messages and your latest status update and both shape and size of their windows can be altered by dragging the corners, so they can dominate as much or as little of the screen as you like. The rather clunky Motoblur site allows your contact data to be backed up in the cloud and lets you delete your data if you lose your phone – a service that's been echoed by HTC with HTCSense.com and has similarities to Apple’s Find My iPhone.
The 5Mp camera is a step down from the 8Mp model on the XT720 though it's apparently much the same as the one on the original Milestone, apart from having 720p HD video recording. Features on the still photo side include a dual LED flash, autofocus, widescreen setting, multi-shot (five pics max), panorama mode, digital zoom, face tagging and geo-tagging thanks to the onboard A-GPS.
Picture quality is decent enough in good light, with sharp edges and generally good colour balance. The HD video is reasonably sharp too, certainly a cut above what you'd normally expect from a 5 megapixel camera.
