Droid Serif is a transitional font; it feels more “idealized” than “written.” It has a slightly condensed, “square-feeling” bowl, contrast between thick and thin strokes, a vertical stress, and terminals and serifs that don’t look pen-formed. It has a significantly larger x-height than Georgia.
According to Ascender Corp., Droid Serif “features slightly condensed letterforms to maximize the amount of text displayed on small screens. Vertical stress, sturdy serifs and open forms contribute to the readability of Droid Serif while its proportion and overall design complement its companion Droid Sans.”
