Motorola Droid 3 Review
8 February 2014
Conclusion: If you are a Verizon Wireless Android business user, hardware keyboard aficionado, or world traveler, then this is your device. The phone is fast, the software flexible and not in your face, and the raw capabilities are just unmatched for the U.S. market. This is the phone I want to use when it's time to get on a plane or get some work done while out of the office.
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
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). If you’re looking for a powerful smartphone with a great QWERTY keyboard, the Droid 3 and Captivate Glide are both excellent choices – I’d recommend the former, though, if you want the best.
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 Droid lineup. It surpasses any previous Motorola keyboards that we’ve seen.
Summary: 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. But beyond all that, it boasted features unlike any other phone at the time — yes, back in 2009, a WVGA screen and Android 2.0 (along with Google Maps’ brand new turn-by-turn directions) were thoroughly modern.
Pros: Best Droid keyboard to date, qHD display, Solid battery life, Global capabilities
Cons: Software can get laggy, No dedicated camera button, No LTE
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. And having a screen that's better than Apple's already-fantastic Retina Display is kind of like Motorola bragging about being able to offer that all under $200 on a two-year contract. And that's why it's the best phone on the planet, too.
