Review: Motorola Droid
Here is Phone Scoop's full-length, in-depth report on the new Motorola Droid. It easily bests most other Android phones out there, but still has a few major drawbacks.
AD article continues below...
If you're a Verizon Wireless customer who's longed to be on the cutting edge, the Droid is probably your best bet. It is Verizon's first Android phone, and makes a bold entrance with Android 2.0 system software, a 5 megapixel camera and other features that the current crop of Android phones just don't offer. On top of that, it's well built, has an incredible display, and ain't bad looking, either.
assuming with a 2yr contract.
the total was 226.00
thats pretty darn amazing for a high end phone
Does it have a sensor on it for calls?
Iphone killer? Not a chance
i was hoping for more from motorola but was very disapponted. so some observations:
- screen transitions were choppy not smooth and fluid like the iphone.
- overall design is clunky and kind of like a brick. i like the htc droid phone much better.

First thing I'll do when I get this phone is load a movie on it. My smartphone sales will be great.
One thing I notices with your review is you said the video quality was poor. Some other reviews I've read mentioned that while the camera was finicky, the v...
app storage limitation?
Are Android app developers that buttoned up and space conscious? Can I expect a game like TigerWoods to ever be available on this platform?
Is is even logical to compare it to my ipod touch that can utilize the entire 16 gigs for apps/music/video or whatever?
Six months down the road I don't want to be hassled with which app do I keep and which can I get rid of to make room.
That being said, they are working for a way that only executable files have to be on the phone, an the data (the graphics, saved games, etc) will be able to be on the memory card.
I Would Wait.
Agreed. Reportedly Verizon is throwing everything except the kitchen sink.
