The Dext has a great deal going for it. The capacitance touchscreen is reasonably good, the slide-out keyboard is excellent and the Motoblur social networking apps are a treat to use. However, the lack of multi-touch, ugly design and sometimes sluggish performance means it doesn't endear itself to you in the same way as, say, the HTC Hero. It's still a fine handset, but it's far from being our favourite Android handset. Perhaps Motorola can go one better with the upcoming Droid, or Milestone as it seems set to be called in Europe.
