The new Droid phone is definitely a step up for phones that utilize the Google Android system, and it is definitely a phone that has gotten everyone’s attention. But, does the phone really live up to the hype? Well, that is up to you to decide, but here are some quick thoughts on the phone after a general going over.
First of all, the shape and size of the phone are nice – especially considering the fact that the phone includes a full, real QWERTY keyboard. The keyboard is a bit awkward to use at first, but you quickly adapt to it with a bit of practice. The phone is nice to look at, but the real fun begins when you turn it on.
The resolution on the phone is brilliant – needless to say, this one is a looker! You will see on this phone a screen that is definitely above any of it’s Android predecessors and one that definitely competes with others on the market. As far as performance goes, the Droid can seem a bit stuttery at times – though this is easily made up for by the speed and quickness with which other functions are performed. Also, the camera takes decent stills, but what is really amazing about the Droid is the video that it can take! You will be amazed at the high quality of the video that you can capture on this phone! Another great feature on this phone is the audio. Built in, on board audio, from conference calls to music, is very good! It is undistorted, clear, and very pleasant to the ears. Some of this is certainly due to Verizon’s network, but Motorola must have put some serious effort into it as well!
All in all, this phone is a keeper! Two thumbs up for a winner from Motorola!
