Excerpt: Stands the test of time. Pros: Build quality is tough Batterylife is decent Reception is above par as well as call quality Camera is very good Cons: Keyboard is very flush and hard to text with. Processor is sluggish, but what do you want, it's a circa 2009 on 3G Heavy phone. More metals used in construction. Screen and camera are average.
Excerpt: I owned the phone for a few months before upgrading to the HTC Droid Incredible, and honestly if I were using it when it came out it would have seemed amazing. The problem I had was mostly due to the camera and the keyboard. The camera was definitely sub-par and the keyboard was awkward to type with, otherwise, the battery life was decent and the touch screen was very responsive given it has a single core processor and very little ram.
Summary: I bought this personally because it is a droid based r2d2 cell phone plus the motorola i had so many other phones that get bad with sending and receiving messages it would glitch and or freeze up or turn off this one none of that happens if it doe's your phone should be checked but i do recommend this phone iphone has been played out i went through so much with them i changed it within a week i bought a new phone and sold it i like all the features this phone brigs to...
Summary: It helps to be a Star Wars fan to have this phone. Is it better than any other smart phone....I would say no. I did not have a smart phone before this phone, so this is my first smart phone and it's pretty good. Still trying to get familiar with it, but over all it's not a bad phone. I feel the battery should last longer, but it is what it is. I do get compliments that's it's a R2D2 phone.
Droid R2D2 excellent value and very user friendly! It also looks cool!

Summary: If we had known this phone was so cool, we would have bought it during our upgrade period instead of on eBay. This phone is extremely user friendly and FUN! It garners a lot of attention from those around you just because of it's nature of being R2D2 and using the sounds R2D2 made during the movies. The slide out keyboard is easy to use as well as is the touch screen. Battery life, phenomenal!
Summary: good value and star wars too boot. easy to use and not too smart for a non geek too use. it does everything i want and the cost most times is less than the insurance copayment. cannot beat the abilities for the cost. have converted 2 others in my family to the 955's.
