The first week, however, I couldn&rsquo;t get into the phone right away. I rarely took the Droid 3 with me because it seemed sluggish, but I finally buckled down to figure it out and came away modestly impressed with the third version of one of Motorola and Verizon&rsquo;s most popular brands."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/adt/auto/1314721289.usr309.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>This is a good concise review of the Motorola Droid 3.&nbsp; Though I'm not a fan of physical keyboards on phones in general I really don't like them without dedicated numeric keys.&nbsp; I was glad to see they finally fixed that and added a new top row with numbers.&nbsp; I'm also glad they added MicroHDMI.&nbsp; The fact that it can record 1080p video is a nice touch as well.&nbsp; Also, I was glad they finally bumped the screen up from 3.7" to 4".&nbsp; I think screen size is so critical when you're using your finger, and not a stylus, to push on-screen buttons.&nbsp; I was very surprised that the reviewer found it slow at first.&nbsp; I haven't used it but wouldn't have expected that from any dual-core phone running Gingerbread.</p><p>Do you have a Droid 3?&nbsp; If so, what's your favorite feature?&nbsp; How has the performance been?&nbsp; If you don't have a Droid 3 does it have the features you're looking for?</p>
