Summary: Before there was "Nexus," there was Droid. Verizon, Motorola, HTC, and others teamed up to turn the Lucasfilm-licensed term into a synonym for everything great about Android. It deserved the moniker, too: from the original, keyboarded Droid to the Droid X and Droid Incredible, the name meant something. Now four years after its first "Droid DOES" ad , the Droid lineup — now exclusive to Motorola and Verizon — isn't competing with the iPhone anymore.
Pros: Lots of useful additions to Android, Solid call quality
Cons: Awful design, Weak build quality, Poor battery life, Lots of Verizon bloatware, AMOLED display has a few issues
Conclusion: It's funny that the Moto X overshadows Verizon and Motorola's latest Droid for 2013. They share quite a bit of DNA including processing architecture, Moto's wonderful Touchless Control and Active Notifications, AMOLED 720p display technology and a 10MP rear camera with RGBC sensor. But the Moto X wins us over with its overarching focus on usability.
Pros: Great new user-centric features like active notifications and always-listening voice command software.
Cons: Slippery, glossy finish doesn't do justice to the Kevlar underneath. Battery life just OK.
