Review: Motorola Droid 3
The Motorola Droid 3 is mostly good, but has a few glaring problems that bug me.
The hardware, while huge and chunky, works well and offers the best QWERTY on a Motorola phone that I can remember. Lovers of the physical keyboard will surely enjoy that of the Droid 3. Signal and battery performance were great, but sound quality of calls was a real problem in my book. If you spend a lot of time on the phone, you might want to look elsewhere. If you don't often make use of the gift of gab, then perhaps this fault can be overlooked.
The software tools on board the Droid 3 are as good as other smartphones. It handles messaging with ease, and offers a few unique tools when it comes to social networking, such as the universal inbox.

Media playback is good and the Droid 3 offers plenty of options for the media savvy user. The camera software and gallery in particular are very good. It’s a shame the results of the camera and video camera were so average.
The Droid 3 is a satisfying sequel in the way that Toy Story 3 was. It's not as unique as the first, not as polished as the second, but still an overall good device.
