Verizon Wireless Droid 3
Great keyboard, Flexible user interface, 1080p HD video, World 3G roaming.
Large keyboard is comfortable enough for extended typing sessions. Useful predictive text suggestions make long messages a breeze. Lightly rubberized back provides a nonslip grip, as do the similarly rubberized keys.
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
Screen is bright and detailed even at low settings, Physical keyboard is backlit and fairly comfortable to use, Construction of phone feels solid, Internal hardware provides lots of kick to the performance
Great keyboard, flexible user interface, 1080p HD video, world 3G roaming
Gorgeous screen, Long battery life, Works worldwide, Sharp 8-megapixel camera, Five-row keyboard.
Excellent keyboard, Dualcore CPU, Highres qHD display
Excellent build, fast, great keyboard.
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.
Nice big keyboard, Ships with Gingerbread.
Dual-core processor helps ward off lag; nice, solid, professional design; great standby time; 16GB built-in memory; awesome 5-row QWERTY keyboard.
Heavy, No Google Talk video support, Poor camera white balance, No 4G support
The 960 x 540 resolution screen looks nice, but itís 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.
No 4G LTE, Screen quality is poor, Camera takes washed-out images, NinjaBlur UI is bland, A lot of unremovable bloatware apps
Heavy, not very comfortable to hold, Sliding action requires too much force
It's not the lightest (184 grams) or thinnest (64.1 x 123.3 x 12.9 mm) phone out there, Once you've used Verizon's LTE data, it's tough to go back to 3G, If you don't have to have a slideout keyboard, you probably don't need the Dr
Heavy, no Google Talk video support, poor camera white balance, no 4G support
No LTE, Android skin slows things down, HD video playback trouble, Some bugs.
Boxy and bulky, Subpar camera, A few bugs
Voice quality could be better.
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.
Poor camera, Way too much bloatware, Stock applications were unstable.
The PenTile display effectively kills the term "qHD"; battery life suffers while in use; no LTE; 512MB RAM; no physical camera button, 8-megapixel camera is mediocre.
