Motorola Droid - Pocket-lint

 

This is a fantastic phone, but would we personally choose it over the Hero? Not, if the Hero, as suggested by HTC, will be getting Android 2.0

Screen, Verizon network, Wi-Fi, QWERTY keyboard

No multi-touch browsing, no emotion

It's the question that everyone will ask, so we might as well get it out of the way now - is this an iPhone or HTC Hero killer? And the answer is no.

Motorola Droid review

 

The world's first Android 2.0 phone will soon hit the UK as the Milestone. We review the Droid to see what goodies are in store…

It may be rough around the edges, but the Droid is the best Android phone yet and Moto’s biggest triumph since the RAZR

Motorola Droid review

 

Making good use of Android 2.0's new features, the Motorola Droid is a powerful web surfing and communications tool that has a chance of living up to its hype. The Droid's biggest flaw, however, is in its hardware design. The keyboard is shallow and...

The Motorola Droid certainly stands out among the growing Android army due to its superior hardware and enhanced 2.0 software. But will the Android Marketplace catch up to the iPhone's App Store? Therein lies the key to success for the Droid. The Droid...

Motorola DROID review

 

Motorola's second Android handset is heading our way. We review the Motorola DROID to find out what users can expect from the Milestone when it hits the UK.

The DROID is truly a coup for Motorola, a manufacturer thought to be well past its prime. Only sales figures will determine how the DROID will stack up against its self-professed competition, Apple's iPhone, but Verizon has found itself a fantastic...

Verizon Wireless Motorola DROID review

 

We review the highly anticipated Motorola DROID, Verizon's Android-fueled answer to the iPhone

Terrific hardware, fantastic build quality ; Free voice-guided navigation courtesy of Google Maps Navigation ; Blazing fast user interface

No native multitouch support ; Inadequate camera ; No global roaming capability

Motorola Droid review

 

The Motorola DEXT may not have been the comeback hit the once almighty mobile giant was hoping for. But its follow up, the Motorola Droid (or the Motorola Milestone as it is here in the UK), looks poised to not only put Moto back on the mobile map, but...

Screen is a stunner, capacitive touch is brilliant, Android 2.0

QWERTY keypad could be better, no multitouch on US version

One of the very best phones we've ever used, the Motorola Droid is set to slay all comers

Motorola Droid smartphone

 

The first Android 2.0 phone impresses with a strong suite of Web features and a stunning 3.7-inch display, but some users might have trouble with the shallow keyboard.

Snappy Web browsing, gorgeous 3.7-inch display

Some camera images come out grainy, flat keyboard is difficult to type on

Motorola Droid Ultra review: Superthin phone flattened by its Verizon rivals

 

The Droid Ultra's $199.99 price and even its very existence baffles me. Standing smack dab in between the affordable $99.99 Droid Mini and pricey $299.99 Droid Maxx , the only reason to choose the Ultra is either because you value trimness above all...

The superthin Motorola Droid Ultra has a lovely, large screen and takes pleasing pictures. The phone also has long battery life and offers slick tricks such as advanced voice commands and screen-based notifications.

The Motorola Droid Ultra’s chassis feels slippery, collects prints and smudges easily, and isn’t comfortable to hold. The phone has just 16GB of internal storage and no SD card slot.

Unless you want the thinnest smartphone on the block, the more powerful HTC One and Droid Maxx are better buys.
