Motorola Milestone 2 review

A thinner and faster redesign of Motorola's quirky QWERTY

Motorola Milestone 2 review: Video

Motorola milestone 2

The Milestone 2's default video option is to record in 720p, and the resulting footage is fantastic. There's nothing in the way of tearing or the over-stretched blotchiness you get in other so-called 720p mobile cameras, with footage the best we've seen from a phone camera.

The only downside is the size of the files. This superb video quality comes at a price, with the Milestone 2's HD 3GP clips taking up a huge amount of space. This 30 second sample clip of ours ended up as a 37MB file, so while it's going to be a bit of a pain uploading to Facebook over a flaky 3G connection the quality can't be beaten.

To keep file size down, you're able to choose a Video Message option, which drops the resolution down to QVGA (320 x 240) and imposes a one minute length restriction. Then you end up with a more manageable 1MB file. Sound is recorded very well, too, with the on-board mic doing a great job of picking up voices and animal snuffling sounds.
