LG DoublePlay vs Motorola Droid 3 – the specialized texting machine vs the universal phone
18 December 2011
Conclusion: Overall, both phones are pretty good, but for different purposes. The Droid 3 is slightly more expensive, but it’s a great universal smartphone that is reliable, durable and can be used for most tasks, including writing a lot of text.
Excerpt: The first time I laid eyes on the LG DoublePlay, I thought I was in love. I'm a former T-Mobile Sidekick / Danger Hiptop fan, you see, and both physical keyboards and rapid multitasking are near and dear to my heart.
Pros: Decent single-core performance, Decent battery life, Decent camera
