Motorola Droid 3 (Verizon Wireless)

CNET
17 October 2011
  • Summary: For Verizon customers who crave physical keyboards, the Motorola Droid 3 offers an excellent one, but the rest of the Android smartphone's improvements fail to impress.
  • Pros: The Motorola Droid 3 features an excellent five-row QWERTY keyboard. The next-gen Droid also offers the latest Gingerbread software, a dual-core processor, and an upgraded 8-megapixel camera.
  • Cons: The Droid 3 lacks 4G. Compared with the competition, the smartphone's qHD display isn't that sharp and performance isn't as snappy. Call and picture quality could be better.

Do a dual-core processor and great keyboard make up for the Droid 3's lack of LTE and thicker stature?

theverge.com
5 August 2011
  • Summary: The third-generation Droid isn’t a trailblazer like its original forefather, nor is it a disappointment like the Droid 2 — it’s more of a middle-of-the-road phone. It’s got one of the best keyboards on an Android phone to date, a crisp qHD display, and some solid battery life. On the other hand, its somewhat sluggish skin, chunky bod, data speeds, and camera (with a lack of a camera button!) cannot match the competition from the likes of HTC and Samsung.
  • Pros: Best Droid keyboard to date, qHD display, Solid battery life, Global capabilities
  • Cons: Software can get laggy, No dedicated camera button, No LTE

Review: Motorola Droid 3

Wired
3 August 2011
  • Excerpt: When the original Motorola Droid charged into the smartphone world, it shook things up. The Droid’s arrival was notable not because it was an extraordinarily kickass phone, but because it was the first serious Android-powered challenger able to stand up against the market-dominating iPhone.

Motorola Droid 3 Review

Digitaltrends
3 August 2011
  • 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 own a dual-core phone.
  • 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

Droid 3 by Motorola

MobileTechReview.com
20 July 2011
  • Conclusion: The Droid 3 is a solid evolution of one of Motorola's most successful smartphone lines. It's faster, has a higher resolution display and the camera is surprisingly decent. If you've got the original Droid and have enjoyed that phone, we heartily suggest you check out the Droid 3: it's much faster and the display is definitely improved. If you're looking for a high end QWERTY smartphone on Verizon Wireless, the Droid 3 should be on your list.
  • Pros: Excellent build, fast, great keyboard.
  • Cons: Voice quality could be better.

Motorola Droid 3

cellphones.ca
24 November 2011
  • Excerpt: The Motorola Droid 3 is the third generation of Droid smartphones, and brings a few new features to the table. While the phone looks about the same as the previous two generations, the Droid 3 is thinner, which makes it easier to slip the phone into a tight pocket. The Droid 3 is also heavier than its predecessors, thanks to a slightly larger screen. This is not the phone to buy if you cannot stand to use bigger phones.

Motorola Droid 3

Pocket Lint
19 July 2011
  • Conclusion: The Droid 3 is a perfectly respectable handset. It’s fast, solid and well made, with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard that’s one of the very best out there, and a good (if slow) camera. The 4-inch screen is large and colourful but do sample it alongside the Nexus S, say, before committing yourself to emailing and surfing on it for a full 2-year contract. The bulky design also smacks of complacency.
  • Pros: Very well made, first class QWERTY keyboard (plus Swype), nice photos and videos
  • Cons: Juddery screen, not 4G, blokey design
