Motorola Droid 3 Cell Phone Review

Verizon’s Droid line of Android phones has been very prolific this year. We have reviewed the original Droid, the Droid Incredible, the Droid X, the Droid 2, and the Droid Pro. Although they all run on the Verizon network (in the USA) and use the Android operating system, each has a unique set of features. So when the Droid 3 appeared on the scene, we were happy to give it a thorough assessment.

The Droid 3 comes in the typical Droid box with a futuristic-looking red-eye logo, as shown in Figure 1. These logos are found on all the Droid boxes. All the logos are similar, but each is unique to the individual model. The distinctive red-eye logo shown on the box also is the basis for the animation that starts when the phone is turned on.

The contents of the box are shown in Figure 2. The Motorola Droid 3 comes with an AC adapter, a USB cable, and reference material. The SIM card and battery came pre-installed on our review device.

As you can see in Figure 2, the Droid 3 is a typical candy-bar touchscreen phone. Like other Droid phones, it has a solid build and a good solid feel. It measures 2.5 x 4.85 x 0.5 inches (64.1 x 123.3 x 12.9 mm). It is slightly thicker than some other Droid phones because of the side-out keyboard. Although the keyboard adds some heft, it is not as much as you might think. The Droid 3 weighs in at 6.49 ounces (184 grams), whereas the original Droid weighs 5.47 ounces (155 grams) and the Droid X weighs 6 ounces (170 grams).
