Review: Motorola Droid 3
As mentioned earlier, there are 60 apps preloaded on the Droid 3, many of them Verizon and Google's own software/services. Some of the stand-outs include Amazon's Kindle app, BlockBuster, Golf, MotoPrint (lets you print via Bluetooth to compatible printers), and QuickOffice.Bluetooth
The Droid 3's Bluetooth radio connects to phones, headsets, PCs, and speakers. I had no trouble pairing it with half a dozen different pieces of equipment. Phone calls placed through mono headsets sounded terrible. The same goes for music played through Bluetooth stereo speakers. Sending files between phones and PCs, however, wasn't a problem, and I was able to connect the phone to my car and see my address book just fine.Clock
The Droid 3 has a large digital clock that is easily seen when the power/lock key is pressed. Reading the time outdoors, though, can be hit or miss. The Droid 3 also has a clock widget for use on the home screen panels. This widget is widely customizable, but the lock screen clock is not.

The Droid 3 includes both Google Maps and VZNavigator. Both are capable applications at providing voice-guided driving directions. The latest version of Google Maps supports 3D city views (in select cities) and map caching for offline use. VZNavigator doesn't do that, and costs $10 per month to use. VZNavigator's GPS performance is a little bit better and more accurate in my experience.

Review: Motorola Moto Z2 Play for Verizon Wireless
Motorola's latest Android smartphone is the mid-range and highly-capable Moto Z2 Play. This winsome handset may not stay strictly true to the original, but it is compatible with all of Motorola's Moto Mods accessories and still brings plenty to the table.
Review: Motorola Moto E4 for Verizon Wireless
Motorola's entry-level Android handset, the Moto E4, may be small in stature, but it's big on performance. The E4 is an affordable phone that includes a fingerprint reader, a 5-inch screen, and a capable camera.
Review: Moto Mods for Motorola Z2 Play
Motorola's new Z2 Play smartphone is a fine piece of hardware and I strongly recommend it. While you're at the Verizon store, you should consider picking up some Moto Mods to go with the Z2 Play.
