Full Review of Motorola Droid 3

Sunday, July 31st 2011. | Gadget News

The Motorola Droid 3 smartphone released for the speedy Verizon wireless network is the 3rd installment of the incredibly popular Motorola Droid phone. However, regardless how powerful a phone is or how many wonderful features it has, if it is on a wimpy wireless system, it can perform to the best of its abilities. In this case, the Motorola Droid 3 is running on the wireless platform that was voted highest in customer satisfaction in 2010. Verizon is always speedy and efficient. With a quick processor, nice, big, bright display and full feature set, the Motorola Droid 3 stands poised to represent its popular ancestors, the Droid and Droid 2, very respectfully.

The display mentioned earlier is a 4 inch qHD display with 960 x 540 pixel resolution. That is a full 20% clearer and with better contrast than the typical 800 x 480 pixel phones, which make up the majority of the smartphone marketplace. In our test runs, surfing the web, watching videos and movies, or playing games was always an enjoyable experience visually. Buy the Motorola Droid 3, starting at $49.99 at Amazon.  All Android phone purchases come with a $15 Amazon credit good towards apps, MP3 downloads, and Kindle content.

And with the latest Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system and Motoblur overlay, the navigation of the Motorola Droid 3 is an above average experience compared to other mobile phones. And as with all Android operating systems, Google provides full Adobe Flash player support. The Adobe Flash player is widely regarded as the best at rendering webpages, videos and movies in the truest graphical representation. That means that your experience surfing the web when encountering Flash recorded content is always the best.

That 5th row is across the top of the keyboard, and supplies numbers just as you would see on a true QWERTY PC keyboard. In previous renditions of the Droid, you had to leave the keyboard to access numbers. This was not only a pain in the you know what, but also slowed you down when texting and keyboarding. This new side-slide keyboard on the Droid 3 allows those of us who text and keyboard extensively a much better experience.

And at only $49, the Motorola Droid 3 global smartphone is a top value in the mobile marketplace. Whether you desire a big bright, clear screen, multimedia capabilities, a Google Android OS supporting Flash player, or simply a great all-around feature set at a great price, the Motorola Droid 3 deserves your consideration as your next Android phone.
