Motorola DROID3 Hands-on and Walk-through (Updated: Second Video Added)

We finally got a hold of the brand spankin’ new DROID3 and have had just enough time with it to put together some first impressions, a quick video walk-through, and a fancy little gallery.  Overall, we’ve been really impressed by it after our first few minutes.  Motorola has done some major improving upon Blur to make this device feel like nothing they’ve produced before – and that’s a good thing.  The performance is stellar with the dual-core processor, we’re not hating the qHD screen by any means yet, and the keyboard is something we’re beginning to enjoy again.  So far, so good.

    I have had my Droid 3 since the July 8. I initially loved it and had nothing but good to say. Now it is the 16th and although the keyboard is stellar, this seems to be its only strong point. I really find the phone to be laggy and buggy. The camera on this thing is crap. The pictures have a blue tint to them. The front facing camera is even worse. I thought dual-core was supposed to make this thing fast, but it seems laggier than my DX. I have been at a wedding and family festivities all day today and this phone is on the verge of going back. I took ADW off thinking it was the problem, turns out Blur was worse. But the camera on this thing is a deal breaker. Most my family has ifone4s and I was embarrassed that there pics blew mine away in the same light and conditions.It is like I have taken a step back in terms of technology. I think Motorola maybe heading for razor demise again. Don’t misunderstand me folks, I am a Moto maniac, I bought the Star-tac, most of the V60s, Razor, Droid 2, DX, and now Droid 3. This may be then end. Who knows, but if the Bionic is like this phone but just bigger screen and 4G than I see myself moving on to a new manufacturer. Samsung is looking the the future I guess. Maybe I’ll give them a try. :/

    Nice UI touches!  I could totally imagine some people being fooled into thinking this was early Ice Cream Sandwich if you never told them it was MotoBlur/whatever.
