In a video comparison that just screams “appropriate”, the Motorola DROID 2 goes one-on-one with the original Motorola Droid. Looking at the two devices side-by-side, one can conclude that these things are almost identical at first glance. The Droid 2 does away with those gold accents Motorola included on the original offering, and they also improved on the physical typing experience by removing that ghastly directional pad to make more room for the slide-out keyboard.’
It’s usually the inside that counts with an Android device, though, and the Droid 2 doesn’t disappoint. The original Droid sports a TI OMAP3430 processor clocked at 550MHz and 256MB of RAM, while the Droid 2 gets a nice hike in speed thanks to its 1GHz TI OMAP 3630 and 512MB of RAM. The speed benefits shows in several benchmarks with the Droid 2 outperforming the original Droid in every category (including GPU benchmarks, which is pretty significant seeing as they house the same GPU).
