Motorola Droid 2 Cell Phone Review

Introduction

We liked a lot of things about the Motorola Droid, but we really hated the keyboard with its off-set scroll pad and the fact that you couldn’t use voice commands when using Bluetooth. So, when Verizon and Motorola announced the Droid 2, we were excited to take a close look to see if these two problems had been resolved. We were also eager to see what other improvements were made.

As shown in Figure 1, the Droid 2 comes in a small gray box. The phone is manufactured by Motorola, uses the Google Android operating system, and is being offered in the United States by Verizon.

The contents of the box are shown in Figure 2, and they include the phone itself and a USB charger which attaches to the included wall charger. With this type of charging system, you can charge the phone either from a USB port or a wall outlet. Also included is a Getting Started Guide in both English and Spanish. The precautionary pamphlets (Product Safety and Warranty Information Guide, an informational pamphlet on Radio Frequency Emissions and Responsible Driving, and a Consumer Information Guideow) outnumber the operational guides. A PDF of the Droid 2 User’s Guide can be downloaded at the Motorola website, and the manufacturer also offers a printed copy at no additional cost. Kudos to Motorola!

The Droid 2 measures 2.38” x 4.57” x 0.54” (60.5 x 116.3 x 13.7 mm) and weighs 5.96 oz (169 g), making it almost identical to the original Droid. Like the first Droid, the Droid 2 has a solid look and feel. But this Droid adds a little style to the plain, rectangular, black brick-like Droid. As shown in Figure 3, the Droid 2 has a shiny dark silver bezel with rounded edges and a curve at the bottom. Although it is a minor design change, it makes the phone look much more polished and at least a little more stylish.
