With its fast Google-driven browser, Verizon’s fourth Droid model may be a great buy for those who like to use their phone to access the Internet. The Android-powered devices were billed as the iPhone killer, and they do have several features that make them competitive. Motorola (NYSE: MOT News) added several more to the Droid X model, such as an 8-megapixel camera.

Strengths: At 5 inches long and 2.6 inches wide, the Droid X has a 4.4-inch display that would suit users who want readability. “It’s a handful, but a manageable one,” Gikas said in his review. Gikas also likes the device’s keyboard, which has a “Swype” feature that makes its touch-screen keyboard easy to use. The time-saving tool allows users to slide their fingers over the keyboard, rather than lifting them, when typing a word — and yet still avoid typos.

If you’re looking for a phone with a big screen, great search tools and on a reliable network, get the Droid X,” said Paul Eng, who also reviewed the phone for Consumer Reports.

Drawbacks: Droid phones are notoriously clunky. One of the largest phones on the market and weighing in at 5.5 ounces, it’s not a good pocket phone. Also, if you prefer carriers other than Verizon, this model’s not for you. Finally, some reviewers note that the screen’s resolution is not as fine as the iPhone 4’s resolution.

  1. Hi guy, It sounds really good!
