  1. I don’t understand how you could choose the Optimus since every single feature is better on the Droid 3, screen, keyboard and OS. I don’t understand how anyone can recommend a dual core Froyo phone over a Gingerbread phone. One of the key features of Gingerbread is full support of multi-core processors. That alone makes this a slaughter, but the screen makes this contest a joke. DROID3 is the best phone out there – period. The only thing is you need better software to fix the camera and camcorder, so after you get the Droid3 save up $10 for apps to fix that.
