Motorola DROID review

 

It's hard to look at the DROID without looking at the company which brought the device to life. Motorola: for years the name has been synonymous with... well, disappointment. While the industry-stalwart made cellphones sexy with the RAZR, the days...

Handsome and unique design ; Hardware keyboard ; Google Navigation on-board

Hardware keyboard isn't great ; Android software selection still thin ; UI still not a seamless experience

Review: Motorola Droid

 

The Motorola Droid is the first Android handset on Verizon. Better yet it can do some things the iPhone only dreams of.

An awesome Android phone on the Verizon network — finally! Gorgeous, responsive touchscreen. Fast, fast processor. Excellent browser. User-replaceable battery

We want our multitouch pinch! Difficult-to-use physical keyboard. Pocket-tearing heft

Motorola Droid (Verizon Wireless) review

 

On June 30, 2010, we adjusted the ratings to reflect new devices in the market.

The Motorola Droid boasts a gorgeous display and the benefits of Android 2.0, including a faster Web browser, Google Maps Navigation app, and better messaging and contact management. It also offers excellent call quality, long talk time, and improved...

The QWERTY keyboard feels flat and the dialpad control is restricted to the home screen. Music and video capabilities still trail behind the competition. Dual-mode functionality for world-roaming capabilities would have been a nice addition. The Droid...

Despite some design issues and a couple of missing features, the Motorola Droid is the most powerful and fastest Google Android device to date. It fully embraces the openness of the Android platform and offers Verizon customers a smartphone that...

Motorola Droid

 

The first time you pick up the Motorola Droid ($200 with a two-year contract from Verizon; price as of 10/28/09), you'll notice its solid feel and heft--there's a lot going on behind the crisp, 3.7-inch touchscreen. Making good use of Android 2.0's new...

Snappy Web browsing ; Gorgeous 3.7-inch display

Some camera images come out grainy ; Flat keyboard is difficult to type on

The first Android 2.0 phone impresses with a strong suite of Web features and a stunning 3.7-inch display, but some users might have trouble with the shallow keyboard.

Motorola Droid

 

The Motorola DROID has a lot to offer running the Google Android OS 2.0.1 and at the top of that list is a speedy user experience. Nothing seems to lag on this smartphone and it comes with plenty of features to keep you busy. The music player is...

Motorola DROID Review

 

The deed is complete and the joining of two unfamiliar players has come to fruition – finally. Verizon Wireless has held out long enough from embracing the Android camp because of the fear losing complete control in the way apps and media are carefully...

Motorola Droid Smartphone

 

Excellent OS with flexible interface. Easy to use and setup

A little bulky and battery life could be better

One of the best Android phone out today, but not for long (see the HTC Incredible)!
