Motorola Droid 3 Review
3 November 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...
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.

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
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.
Pros: Large keyboard is comfortable enough for extended typing sessions. Useful predictive text suggestions make long messages a breeze. Lightly rubberized back provides a non-slip grip, as do the similarly rubberized keys.
Cons: The 960 x 540 resolution screen looks nice, but it’s no Retina Display. Dynamic range during calls sounds a bit clipped and tinny, like the lower frequencies have been rolled off. No 4G LTE? For shame.
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.
