I scoped that phone out long and hard and yes, I did have reservations. I would have liked to see it have 1Gb of RAM like every other phone out now, but you know what? I can deal with it. I only had a slight issue with speed on the original Droid.
Before I move on, I should let you know that I am a power user. I use the physical keyboard more than I use the virtual keyboard. I update servers, manage six different email accounts, deal with clients, and so on. I use the phone to its fullest extent and she was good to me. I love Android and would never think of going the way of Apple, Blackberry, or Windows, regardless of what the masses think I should do.
So I've got the phone and one thing that I loved is that it has more memory for apps. The original Droid had something like 256mb allocated for apps and I was constantly moving things to the SD card or just deleting them to make room for more essential apps. It got to the point where I deleted Flash because it wasn't as important as the other apps. So now I've got something like over a gigabyte of memory for apps and that should last me a while.
Now I'll get into the good, bad, and whatever of this phone:
This keyboard rules. It clicks and I don't think that it's going to soften up at all for the next few years of heavy use.Read more ›
Slim, Sleek, and Angular - The droid-3 is more slim than the droid-1 or droid-2. It also has the same angular shape that attracted me to the droid-1. I wasn't a fan of the droid-2's strange curves.
Keyboard is a dream - That's why we want the droid-1/2/3 right? They delivered. The droid-3 keyboard is an incredibly improvement over the previous generations. I prefer droid-1 keyboard to droid-2, but droid-3 is undeniably better than both... much better, incomparably better.
Speedy and Snappy - The droid-3 is rippin fast. In fact, it surprises me that the droid-3 is notably faster than my Xoom, which is allegedly using the same dual core processor. Perhaps they did some nice software updates in between, or perhaps it's something else, but the droid-3 is REALLY snappy both in apps and the Browser. In fact, it's the first android phone I've used that feels like it has a 'snappy' browser, even for typing into web fields.
Screen is workable - I like the droid-3 4" screen size over the 3.7" droid-1 screen, but the visual quality on the droid-1 screen is obviously higher. That's partly because the droid-1 screen was a smaller version of the same resolution, which made it look a little crisper, and partly because the droid-3 uses a new PenTile screen technology that basically has fewer little-tiny dots (subpixels) at the same resolution.Read more ›
I've had the first droid since november 09 and im a keyboard fanatic. I need the option of touch screen and a physical keyboard, no ifs, ands, or buts about it. This phone crushes the competition. The screen resolution (960*540), 4 inch screen, and 5th row of keys are the obvious upgrades from the disappointing droid 2. Internally they gave us 8 gb of internal memory, 2 cameras, and only 512 on the RAM (which is still an upgrade from the last droids). Also dual core 1 GZ processor!..nuff said
Its much faster! I've crammed it with all the apps from my Droid 1 already and it hasn't slowed down much at all! I HAVENT EVEN MOVED ANY TO THE SD CARD YET! So it handles them well.
Front camera and keyboard. Very few phones in the market have both. This phone is the only one on Verizon to do so
The buttons are much better than the last two Droids. You don't have to press nearly as hard.
DLNA - really moving into the future with this. Makes sharing so much easier
Comes with apps that help you better manage your phone such as task manager, messaging (manages alerts from your texting app to emails, to Facebook and so on) social networks (which helps you import everything by each social network you're a part of). It makes you feel loved when it comes with GOOD apps to help you better use your phone
Nice screen! Bigger and better by resolution. You just have to see it for yourself. When you go to the verizon store, just look at it
Battery life - for a 4 inch screen, my battery life is pretty good. I do alot of surfing and texting as well and it still holds up. Compared to other 4 inch screen phones and dual core phones..it has to be one of the best.Read more ›
