Verizon Motorola Droid 2 Review, Droid 2 “Does it” Again?

August 23, 2010, By Atul Roach

The Droid first variant from Motorola certainly did it for Verizon, but the big question with the arrival of this years Droid successor is whether it can repeat the Droid success which we saw the first time around. At that time, the surge of the Android OS was a major factor, whereas now, Android is an established name so the onus was on Motorola to pack the Verizon Droid II with some novel and useful integrations.

Going by the face value, there is hardly anything you can pick to differentiate between the Droid and the Droid II other than the glossy blue-silver look on the front replacing the black look of the former Droid. Gladly, the feature set is pretty differentiable and that is what really matters.

The Droid II is better in terms of the battery life while the keyboard has also undergone changes, but it still feels awful to say the least. Droid II is also better in terms of the processor as the new adaptation is capable of clocking 1GHz.

What is more is the presence of Android 2.2 Froyo, but the disheartening factor is that it has been clubbed with MOTORBLUR UI yet again. Other features like the Swype virtual keyboard and voice commands along with an improved voice quality over the Droid make the Droid II an Interesting option.
