What is it: Qwerty keyboard Android smartphone

Price: From £379.99

Good:

  • Improved slide-out keyboard layout
  • Swype on-screen keyboard
  • Latest Android 2.2 OS
  • Packed with features

Bad:

  • Irritatingly slow in places
  • Poor battery life
  • Widgets still need improvement

The judgement: 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 updates.
