What You Need To Know

  • The Droid Pro feels and looks a lot like a BlackBerry.
  • It has a full keyboard and 3.1" screen.
  • Overall, the Droid Pro is very slim but does protrude a little at the top.
  • It weighs as much as an iPhone, which isn't much.
  • Motorola obviously had to sacrifice screen size because of the keyboard, but it's not too bad.
  • The screen has just enough room to use comfortable and it's actually one of the most responsive screens we've used on an Android device.
  • There's support for multi-touch, too.
  • The resolution is the only thing that could use some work; it's pretty low at 320x480 (compared to the iPhone's resolution at 960x640).
  • The keyboard works as well as the BlackBerry's for the most part.
  • It feels like the BlackBerry Tour's keyboard because of the raised edges on the keys, which is a good thing.
  • The keys are a little close together which might be a problem for people with huge fingers but overall, we liked typing on it.
  • The Droid Pro runs on the latest version of Android, so it's just as fast as other smartphones.
  • When launching games or apps, the Pro was as fast as the iPhone or Droid X--and in some cases, faster!
  • This is one of the quickest smartphones we've reviewed.
  • The web browsing experience is a little tight on the small screen.
  • Users will probably be pinching and zooming a lot to see what's on the screen.
  • Despite this, the browser was super fast and runs Flash well.
  • The 5 megapixel camera's picture quality is pretty good: outdoor pictures look really good but indoor photos were a little grainy, even with the flash.
  • The video quality isn't HD but it'll do.
  • The Droid Pro comes standard with access to the Android Market, support for practically any email account and DLNA streaming to devices like a TV or PlayStation 3.
  • Also, the phone works overseas unlike a lot of Verizon phones.
  • It only has 2 GB of internal memory, plus a 2 GB micro SD card, so you'll probably have to shop for a larger card.

Price

  • $20 with a contract on Amazon Wireless.

Rating

  • Buy!
  • Despite the small screen, this is a super fast productivity phone with tons of perks.
