Motorola Droid 3 vs Samsung Captivate Glide – comparing two of the best QWERTY smartphones on the market
12 December 2011
Conclusion: The price for both the smartphones is about the same, and with Christmas coming, it will most likely go down considerably, especially since the new 4G LTE models are coming up (the Droid 4 is already here).
Summary: The Droid 3 has three things going for it: the top-notch keyboard, the latest Gingerbread Android operating system, and it can easily be used outside the United States. The well-thought-out keyboard with its offset keys, dedicated number row, and useful arrow keys is a wonderful addition to the...
Pros: Solid build, Excellent five-row keyboard, Gingerbread operating system, World phone, Dual-core processor, Adequate dual cameras, HDMI connector with mirroring
Summary: The Motorola Droid 3 is the best Android device on the market today. It's got the performance to match the other big boys, but it's also got the battery to back it up. An 8MP shooter isn't any joke, either.
Excerpt: In 2009, Motorola and Verizon announced the original Droid — a highly popular device which kicked off, thanks to Verizon’s Droid campaign, a revolution in which not only geeks had Android phones.
Summary: The Motorola Droid 3 is the latest successor in a line of powerful handsets that have helped define Android smartphones. Like its predecessors, the Droid 3 takes on an angular physique but with thinner profile and a larger footprint.
Pros: Great keyboard, Flexible user interface, 1080p HD video, World 3G roaming
Cons: Heavy, No Google Talk video support, Poor camera white balance, No 4G support
Excerpt: The original Motorola Droid was a trailblazing phone when it launched. In fact, it’s a historical device — one of the very first Android phones and the very first to take on Verizon’s Droid moniker.
Pros: Best Droid keyboard to date, qHD display, Solid battery life, Global capabilities
Cons: Software can get laggy, No dedicated camera button, No LTE
Conclusion: The Motorola Droid 3 is a good upgrade from the Droid 2. The overall design has remained mostly unchanged, which will be good for fans of the original that are looking for the same form factor but with boosted specs.
Conclusion: The Droid 3 is a definitive step up from previous slide-out Droids. The 4-inch screen is appreciated and we think the keyboard is pretty much best-in-class. Also, thanks to Android 2.3, it runs much more smoothly than the Droid X2, which means users can actually take advantage of the fact that they...
Pros: Fantastic slide-out keyboard with number row, Larger 4-inch screen, Android 2.3 is fast and speedy, Solid battery life, 16GB internal storage, GSM-capable world phone
Cons: No 4G LTE, Screen quality is poor, Camera takes washed-out images, NinjaBlur UI is bland, A lot of unremovable bloatware apps
