Motorola DROID 3 Review

0. phoneArena 18 Jul 2011, 07:48 posted on

Now that we’re witnessing the third installment in the DROID series, it’s almost unimaginable to see this one slipping through the cracks. Boasting the always expected yearly hardware upgrades, we also see a larger presence with the Motorola DROID 3’s design – and rightfully so, it’s aiming to take things to a bigger level...

This is a discussion for a review. To read the whole review, click here

my Droid 2 is rooted and overclocked to 1.4 GHz guy, since it seems possible for me to make the impossible possible maybe i should go try to loot Fort Knox...

Oh yes, the typical "add faster processor" and "new screen change." Oh how wonderful. Oh wait, they forgot to add LTE support. Oh dear me, such a wonderful step up. But then again, Motorola has never made good devices.

so what if there's no LTE? if you want it so bad get another phone. the Droid 3 has everything BUT LTE and for some people like me that's preferable for a phone like this.

Good, maybe you'll get enough to buy yourself a clue.

Here we go again with the bloatware and bootloaders. Honestly is that all you can talk about?

This phone has a improved screen, way better keyboard, snappy UI(yes despite all the bloatware and that you have to unlock the bootloader) it still runs very smooth. Why don't you actually use one at a verizon store for a few minutes before you talk so much crap about it.

I think you are just mad the Miz is nothing but a jobber now and won't be in the title picture ever again. lol

"Here we go again with the bloatware and bootloaders. Honestly is that all you can talk about?"

Or we could talk about it being on Verizon's horrible network? Or we can talk about it not being LTE? Or we could talk about it not having an unlocked bootloader? Take your pick.

"This phone has a improved screen, way better keyboard, snappy UI(yes despite all the bloatware and that you have to unlock the bootloader) it still runs very smooth. Why don't you actually use one at a verizon store for a few minutes before you talk so much crap about it."

Why in the hell would I ever touch anything with Verizon's name on it lol? No thanks, I rather spend my money elsewhere without getting rapped in my wallet. I don't care about a better keyboard, UI won't matter much if it has so much crap on it preloaded by Verizon.

"I think you are just mad the Miz is nothing but a jobber now and won't be in the title picture ever again. lol"

Put it like this, I'm making more money "jobbing" in one night than you'll make in an entire month.

Lol you actually refer to yourself as the miz. God that's too funny. Like someone who travels the world week to week would ever bother post s**t on a phone website.

I can admit to being an average joe but unlike you who fantasizes about a half naked dude with a belt that belongs to CM PUNK. A guy who actually can wrestle and who isn't annoying like you err the real miz.

Oh YES, because it's not like wrestlers don't use the internet or twitter or even Facebook. But go on, continue being envious while I continue climbing my way up after ME wrestlemania.

Lol, CM Punk can wrestle? Since when?

Did you not watch CM Punk Vs John Cena at MITB? The crowd was going crazy for CM Punk, Miz could never and will never have that kind of fanbase. Only trolls like you like him because you are two of a kind.

the picture quality between the Droid 2 and the Droid 3.

Droid 2 beats it hands down in picture quality. The colors are off with the Droid 3, at least in the pictures I have taken which have all been indoor. Clarity doesn't mean much if there is inaccurate color representation.

However, the quality of the still photos is the ONLY negative I have found on this phone over previous models. I can't express enough the interface improvement and smoothness scrolling between screens. I haven't had any of the freezing problems I frequently had with the Droid 2.

Sorry, I never had the Droid 2 so I can't say really. If it's the same camera on the Droid 1 however then I will def give it to the Droid 3. I mean sure, today's world the Droid 3 camera is lacking but it is much better than the original Droid's.

I feel like this phone deserved its rating. Not really my cup of tea so yeah. 8.5 is more than welcome "for me".

Another Android phone with a sorry camera and poor battery life. 8.5 the new 6.5.

drop it down two points and I'll agree.

Dropping points on a phone for having poor battery life is like dropping points on a car for not being very fuel efficient. If you want a phone with killer performance, you're gonna use a lot of power. If you want a car with killer performance, you're gonna use a lot of gas. Unless the phone only gets like 5 hours of battery with heavy use (not even my EVO is that bad) there's no reason to dock any points.

Great review. I would turn down the dial on your automatic adverb generator though.
