gret phone, horrable battery life.
mr. droid has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
battery is rubbish to put it lighly. going back to my droid x and hopefully i can return this phone. hate it. 2 hours off the charger using only texting a little bit and battery is 1/3 drained. it is great besides that. should have got a droid 2, lg ally or samsung continuum as a second phone.Build quality 9/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 10/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 9/10Text input 9/10Display 9/10Battery 3/10
- almost everything, espcially the keyboard
- battery life is lousy. possibly worse than htc incredible.

I saw this in a Verizon store because it was time to trade in the ole Pixi and I wanted a phone just like it. Then I saw this. Had to have it of course. The review bellow explains it all. The only con I had was that the screen wasn't as big as the others ( like the Pixi) and it was more for business which now i use it everyday.Build quality 10/10Reception 9/10Call quality 9/10Internet 9/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 9/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 8/10Text input 10/10Display 9/10Battery 9/10
- Great keyboard
- Good size
- excellent call quality
- pretty good battery
- Screen not as big as other phones

This phone is great if you check your expectations!
CometGSR has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
The Motorola Droid Pro is a pretty nice Smartphone if you don't ask much of it. It is one of the very few QWERTY candy bar phones that feature Android. It's size makes it easy to carry on a belt and it feels really good in the hands. There are very few phones like it that isn't a legacy Blackberry device. If you like this form factor, I suggest giving this model some consideration.
Keep in mind, this phone will not blow you away with it's features. It was released in October 2010, it is now almost 2016 which makes this phone a relic. What it does do is stir some attention, many people ask me what kind of phone it is, some mistake it as a Blackberry.
Keep Facebook, Messenger, Linkedin or any other social media off of this phone. Trillian works okay for a chat client but I wouldn't try anything else. All of those apps are way too advanced for this older device. I have a tablet that I use for my social media applications, I don't need it on my phone.
It does the basics including phone calls, texting and e-mail. Light internet surfing is possible but you wouldn't want to ask much of it. It is great for getting phone numbers from websites.
This device works well for that special someone who prefers a QWERTY keyboard and smaller size. As long as you don't ask much of it, the device works. If you want all the social media and modern software, you should look elsewhere.Build quality 9/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 5/10Multimedia 5/10Camera 5/10UI speed 8/10Everyday usage 9/10Text input 10/10Display 8/10Battery 8/10
- Small size
- Good Otterbox Options
- QWERTY keyboard
- Stable OS
- Storage Space
- No Modern Application Support

Nice phone as long as you don't car for support.
Aglarond has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
In general, I love this phone. Great keyboard, responsive touchscreen. Horrible battery life, though. Ended up rooting the phone, getting rid of the main battery draining apps, setting the CPU to scale between 300mHz and 1gHz depending on need, and setting up a task killer for everything else. I can now use it all day, including streaming a good bit of music and only have to plug it in at night before bed. If I didn't use it for streaming, I'd probably get a lot more. Basically, if Motorola/Verizon didn't load it with so much crap it would be an almost perfect phone. The screen's not as big as some of the other phones, like the Thunderbolt, but I like the overall size of the phone better. Would definitely recommend if you didn't intend to keep a stock configuration. Otherwise, look elsewhere. It also feels kind of cheaply made compared to some of the other offering out there, but I haven't suffered any hardware problems with it.Build quality 7/10Reception 9/10Call quality 8/10Internet 8/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 5/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 9/10Text input 10/10Display 8/10Battery 6/10
- Great quality phone.
- Better size than most other Droids.
- MotoBlur sucks.
- So does the camera.

Great form factor, awful camera, terrible MP3 playback, had to return it
CrocadileUT has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
The Droid Pro is feature rich, and a great transition to Android for those of us used to BlackBerry because of it's portrait form-factory physical qwerty keyboard. It's more capable than a BlackBerry, a far better web experience, but it comes up short when comparing battery life of a BlackBerry and quality when compared to an iPhone 4. It's display resolution and camera leave something to be desired as well.Build quality 7/10Reception 9/10Call quality 10/10Internet 7/10Multimedia 4/10Camera 1/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 3/10Text input 9/10Display 8/10Battery 8/10
- BlackBerry-like form factor
- GSM & CDMA (world phone)
- physical qwerty keyboard
- awful camera
- low resolution display
- bad audio quality
- had to return, too unstable at the time

Anyways I couldn't be happier w/my Pro...Its does lack some of the ease of use that Blackberry has but the Pros outway the Cons making the Pro my favorite phone out of all the phone i've previously owned ex..Pink Curve, BB tour, all of the LG envy's and the LG Ally!!!!!!Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 9/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 8/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 9/10

This phone is perfect for my everyday use! the portrait qwerty is fantastic! The touch screen is wonderfull. Sometimes there is a server malfunction, but only if you have many apps running at the same time. I would defenitly reccomend this to a friend!Build quality 9/10Reception 10/10Call quality 9/10Internet 9/10Multimedia 8/10Camera 7/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 9/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 6/10

DROIDPROFANATIC has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
The best phone i have ever used! Works so well! I don't have my face to it's screen 24/7 so the battery works pretty well, just a daily charge will do. The call quality was excellent! The android touch screen married with the portrait qwerty is wonderful!Build quality 9/10Reception 9/10Call quality 10/10Internet 9/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 9/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 5/10
- The battery life is short, but no different than any other smartphone.

Droid Pro is a cordless phone, not a global phone for business traveling.
Travelbusiness has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
This phone cannot serve my business needs. One or two long calls, and leaving in standby except for email, the phone lasts less than 12 hours. Apps cannot be killed, or restart on their own. It is a battery vampire, without added value for blackberry converters.Build quality 6/10Reception 6/10Call quality 6/10Internet 6/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 6/10UI speed 6/10Everyday usage 2/10Text input 6/10Display 6/10Battery 2/10
- Fun, featured, popular
- Specs are wrong - not 7 hours talk and NOT 320 hours standby.
- Cannot control or turn off many apps - real battery vampires
- Not a cell-phone, but a cellular cordless that needs constant charging.
- Do not travel with this phone - it dies before your business meetings are over, unless you ask your clients for a charger.

Review of Droid Pro
Droid Pro has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I was previously Blackberry user and now a user of Droid Pro. In overall, I am satisfied with the device however in terms of phone function, calling, it is not good as Blackberry.
In addition the battery runs out so quickly as other reviewers have commented. Qwerty keypad is just fine but much prefer to Blackberry's.Build quality 9/10Reception 8/10Call quality 8/10Internet 9/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 9/10UI speed 8/10Everyday usage 7/10Text input 7/10Display 7/10Battery 5/10

Droid Pro Vs. Blackberry?
droidpro.usersrated.com has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
After reading the Endgadget Review, I am excited to get a hands on review of the Motorola Droid Pro. This phone looks remarkably similar in shape to to a Blackberry, but the Droid Pro’s dimensions seem larger. This is Motorola first attempt at stealing the Blackberry faithful away. It’s meant to be a business device and stands to pose a serious threat to RIM.
I like the look of the Droid Pro, and if the keyboard is anything like the Blackberry, it should be a very good alternative. I am not a fan of the original Motorola Droid’s fold out keyboard, so I am anxious to see how the Droid Pro’s keyboard feels and works. I am not blown away by the specs on the Droid Pro, it seems like a limited upgrade from previous Droids. The internationalization is a nice to have, but really not something I would use regularly.Build quality 9/10Reception 7/10Call quality 7/10Internet 8/10Multimedia 7/10Camera 8/10UI speed 7/10Everyday usage 8/10Text input 10/10Display 7/10Battery 8/10
