Even by mid-2010 standards, Verizon's original Droid still looks and feels thoroughly modern -- after all, it set a pretty high benchmark for the upper end o...

Motorola Droid 2 Global review: Motorola Droid 2 Global

 

Motorola Droid 2 Global

The Motorola Droid 2 Global offers world-roaming capabilities and has a faster processor than the Droid 2. The Android 2.2 smartphone can also be used as a mobile hot spot.

Battery life could be better.

The Motorola Droid 2 Global is a solid Android smartphone for globe-trotting executives looking for a BlackBerry alternative.

Review: Motorola Droid 2 Smartphone

 

The Motorola Droid 2 makes some modest improvements in hardware and software to make for a (mostly) winning follow-up to the original.

High call clarity and great reception mean you can actually use it as a phone. Sound output is loud enough to play music for friends. Lightning-fast internet browsing. Slide-out keypad is spacious and easy to use

Would have to start wearing cargo pants to be able to put it in our pockets. Fairly difficult to navigate at first. Picture and video quality are okay, but nothing we’d really want to upload to Facebook

Motorola Droid 2

 

Ships with latest version of Android ; Improved design

Motoblur detracts from a few native Android apps ; Camera is mediocre

The Droid 2 is a big improvement over its predecessor, but if you take a lot of pictures with your smartphone, you might want to opt for another Droid.

Motorola Droid 2 (Verizon Wireless) review

 

Editors' note: Portions of this review were taken from our evaluation of the Droid X since both smartphones share a number of features.

The Motorola Droid 2 sports a sleeker look and an improved keyboard. The smartphone also features a faster processor, double the RAM of the original Droid, and ships with Android 2.2.

The Droid 2 doesn't have a front-facing camera and Android 2.2's new camera interface. It lacks HDMI port. Though the keyboard is better, keys are a bit stiff to press.

The Motorola Droid 2 offers a number of improvements that make it a worthy upgrade from the Droid and certainly a top choice for those who want a smartphone with a physical keyboard.

Motorola Droid 2 Global (Verizon Wireless)

 

The Droid 2 Global connects to Verizon's CDMA EVDO Rev A network here in the States and to CDMA, GSM or HSPA 900/2100 networks abroad. (No, the GSM side doesn't work on AT&T or T-Mobile—only foreign networks.) It also has Wi-Fi 802/11 b/g/n. Basically,...

Global capability. Good keyboard. Fast processor. Long battery life

Muddy voice quality

The Motorola Droid 2 Global is the top business smartphone for Verizon Wireless subscribers.

Motorola Droid 2 Review: Rebooting the Droid

 

If you've played around with the original Motorola Droid, the Droid 2 will feel very familiar. In fact, at first glance, the Droid 2 appears almost identical to its predecessor—so much so that distinguishing the Droid 2 from the original in the hands...

Motorola Droid 2 (Verizon) Review

 

The Droid 2 is a very good sequel, boasting slicker design with a more comfy keyboard, a speedy processor, and a highly functional version of Android 2.2 (with Motorola's custom widgets). However, this phone also has some drawbacks, including buggy...

Much improved keyboard, Customizable widgets, Android 2.2 OS, Fast hotspot connections

Wi-Fi problems, Mediocre call quality, Inconsistent Flash performance, No HD video recording or HDMI

Motorola Droid 2 (Verizon)

 

Late last year, the original Motorola Droid brought Android into the mainstream. Since then, a new generation of keyboardless "superphones" with larger screens and faster processors have captured the public's imagination. And yet there are still plenty...
