Well, I just wonder about the video capability of this phone and about the review. Saying that up to 720 video would play on a 2 GHz processor phone really doesn't tell much. Did you try 1080 video files, did you try different file formats? That would be helpful, thanks!

I have had this device for just over a month now and I have to say I am very impressed with it.

The "quirks" in the design, such as the slightly raised casework around the glass make perfect sense when you use it. However, the design trim around the camera does look pretty naff. But I don't spend that much time looking at the back of the phone. Overall I like the design and the fact its hardly any difference in size to the Nexus one I owned before, yet the screen size is 4.3" - excellent. The trend for ever larger phones is lost on me, this is big enough thank you.

Good points:- It is very slick in operation. The phone has never crashed in the time I have owned it. Battery operation is 1 day comfortably with normal use, but intensive use, such as several hours on games or facebook will get you reaching for the charger within a day - but at least you do have to try. Nexus one would routinely torch the battery in 12-16 hours on normal use. SD card slot, major bonus! The screen is bright and, while not a "retina" display, it's clear and easy to read.

Bad points:- You can't use BBC iPlayer because the BBC media player app does not install. SD card only accepts up to 32Gb. Camera is not the best in low light, colours lack saturation and accuracy. All apps store on the phone memory, there is no option to move to the SD card, but at least there's 5Gb of storage on board to use. I wonder how well this phone will be supported for android updates, something Motorola have been very slack with in the past.

Overall I am very happy with my choice and even happier that it is not Apple or Samsung.

To answer the question above the phone records and plays back at 1080, so video files of this size should be OK.

Readily available for £250 - where from? Seems to be about £330 every where I have checked?

Having had this phone since a few days after launch replacing my rather old HTC Desire. I have to say on the whole I am very pleased with it so far - the battery life is good but it does seems to run down a bit quicker than other phones when running cpu intensive tasks like playing games - this is probably due to the intel chip. What is really a surprise is how few things I can find that don't work on the intel chip (Probably have the Orange San Diego to thank for that) all the apps I wanted have worked fine. Web browsing is really good on this phone the new chrome browser works really quickly much more pleasing to use than on my last phone. Another concern is when will Jelly Bean come out for this? Motorola have already updated some of there other phone launched at the same time as this so think there may be some delay again down to the different architecture. This may also slow down development of alternative roms from the likes of XDA-Developers in the future as well.

Other minor gripes are the instant shutter button which seems nice at first has taken hundreds of photos of the inside of my pocket! (Thankfully this can be turned off so it doesn't work when locked).
The weird way it mounts as storage on windows machines - you don't need the Motorola software but if you don't you have to eject a virtual CD before it mounts the internal and external storage and often I have to switch it to camera mode quickly then back to MTS mode to get it show up!

@nrostoks - It plays back all the media I have tried using MX player upto 1920 x 1080 video in MKV and MP4 containers with AVC video (upto L4.0) and AAC audio - and no stutters uses about 65% cpu according to MX player to play 1080p with stereo audio.
