Motorola DROID 3 vs Motorola DROID X2
Thankfully, calling quality is great on both handsets with their earpieces producing the same level of tones to make conversations more than audible to the ear. Additionally, voices are prominent and distinctive in tone to allow us to discern just about every uttered word – plus, it helps that there is no hint of background noise or static. But as we mentioned already, the DROID 3 takes a slight lead with its global function.

Using the handsets in mainly the same high coverage areas simultaneously in the greater Philadelphia region, they’re able to keep a steady amount of signal strength to the network – without fluctuating dramatically.

Even with their hard working dual-core processors, we’re able to get at least a solid day of normal usage with both handsets – though, it seems that the DROID X2 slightly puts out more life. But it’s only by a tiny bit. In terms of talk time, it easily goes to the DROID X2 with its 10 hours of continuous usage with a single charge – whereas the DROID 3 puts up a little more than 8 hours. Regardless, we’re more than content with their results, and more importantly, they beat out their 4G LTE brethren.


Okay, we get that Motorola likes to have variety, but after checking out what the two handsets are able to bring to the table, it’s very hard to side with the DROID X2. When looking at their same $199.99 pricing, it’s blatantly obvious that the Motorola DROID 3 is packing a bit more gear under its carriage to increase its overall worth to the consumer – like its front facing camera, exceptional keyboard, global function, and an updated customized Android experience. Previously, size was undeniably the main driving force for the beloved DROID X series, but now that the DROID 3 is sporting a considerably larger frame than its predecessors, it’s no longer an alluring physical trait that the DROID X2 can count on. Even worse, the DROID X2 is already behind the curve with its outdated customized Android 2.2 Froyo experience. However, it’s not all bad news with the DROID X2, especially when it’s the favorable one in terms of shooting photos and videos – but that appears to be its only strong offering. Admittedly, there is no denying that the Motorola DROID 3 received more love and attention, and ultimately, it’s able to catapult over the DROID X2 in being the biggest and baddest DROID smartphone to date from Motorola.
