Motorola Droid 2 Review

Conclusion

IMG_2715 The Droid 2 is a well-built phone and a decent improvement from the original (especially in the keyboard department). I doubt (and probably wouldn’t recommend) that original Droid owners will be rushing out to upgrade if they aren’t already eligible for an upgrade on their line, but new users will be getting an improved experience. Motorola certainly doesn’t have a game changer here, but it’s a decent phone that many are sure to enjoy. For me, it fits in the hands better than the Droid X, and the keyboard is useful, but definitely not recommended for anything involving heavy punctuation. Flash playback is abysmal for the most part unless you happen to find a player that works with it, but even then you’ll likely want to smash your phone on the ground once you try to use the controls of the video player. Flash is better at bringing Flash ads into the browser than it is at providing a usable Flash experience. The Droid 2 is also somewhat lacking in the camera department as it won’t do 720p HD video recording which current top-tier phones support, and the still photos won’t beat a well researched point-and-shoot.
