The Motorola DROID 2 is smaller and denser than the Droid X so it’s a little easier to slide into your pocket. Having the slide out keyboard is great. It’s still a little small for our liking but so much easier to use than a touch screen for banging out quick texts.
The Android OS really started to explode this past summer. There isn’t a single app we love on the iPhone that we can’t find on the Android OS. Angry Birds was pretty much the tipping point for the Android OS. Don’t laugh. We’re half serious. From music services to retro camera effects and everything else that enamored us with the iPhone so early on, DROID does and does it very well.
Call clarity is good. No dropped calls during our testing. Thank you Verizon. How’s that iPhone deal coming along? Certainly you can negotiate better terms and smaller subsidies because you really don’t need the iPhone or do you?
The DROID 2 has room for improvement. It’s too heavy. It’s not a deal breaker but it’s a little too heavy. The camera needs to be better and faster. People really are using these things as their “camera”. Make it boot and shut down faster. Nobody likes to wait.
With the Android OS hitting its stride we can’t wait to see how this market evolves in the next few months.
