The Droid 2 brings such improvements as the latest version of Android OS, a faster 1GHz processor, and double the RAM.

The Droid 2 also sports a sleeker look with rounder, more-tapered edges. The silver-and-blue color combo is also quite attractive and different.

At 4.58 inches tall by 2.38 inches wide by 0.54 inch thick, the smartphone isn't compact by any means, but compared with the Evo 4G and Droid X, it almost feels small.

The original Droid's keyboard was rather awful with its flat keys and awkwardly placed D-pad. Thankfully, Moto got rid of the latter and raised the keys, so the typing experience on the Droid 2 is much better.

Despite all the upgrades, Motorola didn't change the camera on the Droid 2. You still get a 5-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash.

Overall, we were quite happy with the picture quality. Colors were bright, but we think images could have been slightly sharper.
