This time around though, we’re presented with a much larger looking device than before, which is primarily attributed to its 4” display – though, it manages to keep things streamline at 0.5” thick. Constructed out of this durable...

they are! and i'd be one of the first to admit the Droid 2's touch screen isn't the most accurate i've ever used. xD

PhoneArena you are wrog on one thing with the review of the Droid3. The phone does not come with any sd memory card at all, it has the ability to expand its memory with up to a 32 gb card but it does come with 16gb internal memory. I as a Verizon Wireless rep was given that information from upper management yesterday before the official in store release of the phone. But either way the phone is amazing and i would prefer my new droid 3 over my droid x anyday! :)

Most people have at least one or more SD cards. I have two 32GB sd cards and three 16GB memory cards. Yes I buy phones and keep them in good condition and then sell them on Ebay. But I don't sell my sd cards though.

My only complaint is I really wish they 1GB of RAM on this phone, such improved specs overall. Running the latest Android software, 4 inch qhd display, way better keyboard, 16GBs of on board storage, 8 megapixel camera that can shoot 1080p videos. The list goes on and on with improvements but the phone is still stuck at 512MBs of RAM. I would have been happy with 768MBs of RAM even. I have noticed that using the phone, I tend to only have 80-90MBs of free space when you have phones like the SGS2 have over 600MBs of free space. It really makes a big difference to prevent force closes, lag, and other problems.

BUT that's really my only complaint and even so, the phone is very snappy and fast. Games look very good and no lag whatsoever, I really like the keyboard A LOT. I didn't even bother with the Droid 2 because of how little they improved it. This is NOT the case with the Droid 3. It is a huge improvement on almost every single thing.

Wish AT&T had this. Still pissed about Moto taking away the camera shutter button.

Not to be a d**k, but a predecessor is something that "precedes" or goes before in terms of place, order, rank, importance, time, etc. So the Droid 2 is actually the predecessor of the Droid 3...not the other way around.

they got it right..they were just redundant with "previous predecessor"
