I was excited to receive the Motorola Droid 2, but unfortunately that excitement hasn’t lasted. This is certainly not a bad phone, but it’s not a “wow” phone either.
The main disappointments, aside from a major glitch with the mobile hotspot service, are the annoyingly indistinct buttons and the mediocre voice quality. If you’re interested in this phone, I’d advise you to try it out in person before buying it.
In my opinion, there are better Android smartphone options available from Verizon.
- Solid overall design
- Nice display, usable in direct sunlight aside from some problems with yellowing
- Good battery life
- Keyboard is OK, but not great
- Small buttons
- Voice quality is average at best — I have no problems hearing my callers, but they have a hard time hearing me clearly
- External speaker is underpowered and tinny
- Disappointing Camera
