Motorola Droid review

 

The world's first Android 2.0 phone will soon hit the UK as the Milestone. We review the Droid to see what goodies are in store…

It may be rough around the edges, but the Droid is the best Android phone yet and Moto’s biggest triumph since the RAZR

Motorola Droid

 

When Google released its first Google phone with T-Mobile in 2008 the industry had high hopes. Here was an open source platform that would change the face of the industry and give Microsoft, Apple and anyone else who happened to be interested, a run...

Screen, Verizon network, Wi-Fi, QWERTY keyboard

No multi-touch browsing, no emotion

It's the question that everyone will ask, so we might as well get it out of the way now - is this an iPhone or HTC Hero killer? And the answer is no.

Motorola Droid review

 

Making good use of Android 2.0's new features, the Motorola Droid is a powerful web surfing and communications tool that has a chance of living up to its hype. The Droid's biggest flaw, however, is in its hardware design. The keyboard is shallow and...

The Motorola Droid certainly stands out among the growing Android army due to its superior hardware and enhanced 2.0 software. But will the Android Marketplace catch up to the iPhone's App Store? Therein lies the key to success for the Droid. The Droid...

Motorola DROID review

 

Motorola's second Android handset is heading our way. We review the Motorola DROID to find out what users can expect from the Milestone when it hits the UK.

The DROID is truly a coup for Motorola, a manufacturer thought to be well past its prime. Only sales figures will determine how the DROID will stack up against its self-professed competition, Apple's iPhone, but Verizon has found itself a fantastic...

Verizon Wireless Motorola DROID review

 

We review the highly anticipated Motorola DROID, Verizon's Android-fueled answer to the iPhone

Terrific hardware, fantastic build quality ; Free voice-guided navigation courtesy of Google Maps Navigation ; Blazing fast user interface

No native multitouch support ; Inadequate camera ; No global roaming capability

The DROID is truly a coup for Motorola, a manufacturer thought to be well past its prime. Only sales figures will determine how the DROID will stack up against its self-professed competition, Apple's iPhone, but Verizon has found itself a fantastic...

Motorola Droid review

 

The Motorola DEXT may not have been the comeback hit the once almighty mobile giant was hoping for. But its follow up, the Motorola Droid (or the Motorola Milestone as it is here in the UK), looks poised to not only put Moto back on the mobile map, but...

Screen is a stunner, capacitive touch is brilliant, Android 2.0

QWERTY keypad could be better, no multitouch on US version

One of the very best phones we've ever used, the Motorola Droid is set to slay all comers

Motorola Droid smartphone

 

The first Android 2.0 phone impresses with a strong suite of Web features and a stunning 3.7-inch display, but some users might have trouble with the shallow keyboard.

Snappy Web browsing, gorgeous 3.7-inch display

Some camera images come out grainy, flat keyboard is difficult to type on

The Motorola Droid certainly stands out among the growing Android army due to its superior hardware and enhanced 2.0 software. But will the Android Marketplace catch up to the iPhone's App Store? Therein lies the key to success for the Droid.

Motorola DROID review

 

It's hard to look at the DROID without looking at the company which brought the device to life. Motorola: for years the name has been synonymous with... well, disappointment. While the industry-stalwart made cellphones sexy with the RAZR, the days...

Handsome and unique design ; Hardware keyboard ; Google Navigation on-board

Hardware keyboard isn't great ; Android software selection still thin ; UI still not a seamless experience

Review: Motorola Droid

 

The Motorola Droid is the first Android handset on Verizon. Better yet it can do some things the iPhone only dreams of.

An awesome Android phone on the Verizon network — finally! Gorgeous, responsive touchscreen. Fast, fast processor. Excellent browser. User-replaceable battery

We want our multitouch pinch! Difficult-to-use physical keyboard. Pocket-tearing heft
