The XT720 is one of the few phones (and currently only android-based one) to offer a camera with Xenon flash which is what inspired me to purchase it. The picture quality did not disappoint, and did not take many night photos for me to declare a successor to my Nokia N82.
I've come to be fond of the asymmetric shape, and accustomed to the Motorola interface. Although this phone comes with Android v2.1 Eclair, thanks to numerous internet-based resources (and Motorola's developer friendly reputation) I found it very easy to root and upgrade to v2.2 Froyo of the operating system. Main benefits are the ability to then tether to 3G, run in overclock for added processing speed (although 600MHz stock, can go up to 1.2GHz though I usually keep at 800MHz to balance batter life), and added features such as ability to install applications to the memory card.
The SDHC memory card and connection to PC are the only drawbacks of this phone, as it requires just 1 more step than plug and play. You have to set the mode (data xfer, memory card access, charge only, etc.) in order to configure properly when connecting to a computer, as well as "securely" remove/add the memory card itself. Other than that, I'm very content with the phone. Battery life is not great (need to charge about twice every 3 days with moderate usage), but this is about standard for any Android phone.
