Excerpt: My husband bought the Motorola Droid as soon as it came out. At first, i was excited, because my phone doesn't have internet access and I thought this would be fun. I figured I'd try it out, and if I liked his, maybe I'd get one too. The thing I like least about the Droid is the QWERTY keyboard. I text all the time, and I use the Droid to go onto facebook. The keys aren't separate at all, so when you hit one button, you wind up hitting others.
Excerpt: I was so excited to replace my Blackberry Smart phone last Christmas with the Motorola Droid. I must admit, I was a bit puzzled at first by all the bells and whistles, but did alot of exploring and finally got icons where I wanted them for my personal use. I noticed on the first day of use that the battery was going down fast. I attributed that to alot of use and exploration of apps. After another full night of charging, the battery, once again, went down very fast.

Excerpt: On the surface this phone is great. It has great features. It is a Iphone competitor. It is faster in some ways than the ATT Iphone, specifically its internet speeds, but I have not tested its speed vs the Verizon Iphone. My test was a friend was searching for a review on something from a nationwide store. I decided to compare speeds and started after her. My search for the same site started after and ended before my friend's search. I was impressed by this.
Excerpt: I'll admit it: I'm a professional computer expert, so I have high standards for a smartphone BUT I don't think I'm going to say anything here that a buyer/user wouldn't agree to after using it for several weeks, so read on. I have a LOT of gripes about this phone, ranging from a few huge ones to a million small ones, so I'm going to start with what I like about it, because it's a nice small list .
Pros: Very good GPS reception. Good MotoNav navigation application, even if it costs 70 euros. Feels solid in its construction. Solid slide keyboard. Fell confortable and easy to type in. Nice acessories: multimedia mount and car support for GPS use.
Cons: Terrible camera quality. Became glitchy after a couple of months. Terrible keyboard support for non English writers. No Video Call support. The Android OS is still poor in features. Motorola apps are poor and you have to pay for everything.

Pros: The screen resolution is good, the speed is good, the camera is great and the volume is good. The apps are fun, BUT....
Cons: The phone aspect stinks. You can't hear the person calling. The person can't hear you. The voices go "digital" sounding, they fade in and out, there is a bad echo and dropped calls. I have been told the issues are not even aknowledged by Motorola.
Excerpt: Bought the Droid when I was headed into the hospital for multiple rounds of chemo and radiation, thinking that it would be easier to use than a big bulky and heavy laptop. At the time, there were only a few phones like this on the market about a year ago and wanted to stay with Verizon over ATT. I had heard only goods things about this phone at the time, so I pulled the trigger for my wife and I. Needless to say, I definitely should have waited to get a smartphone.
Excerpt: Got my Droid back when they first came out. I initially loved it, but the longer I have it, the more I hate it. Cons: 1) Using the slide out keyboard, when I typed certain letters it would add multiple letters. For example, typing the word "hello" would come out at "heeello". Had to erase a lot. 2) Going back to my home screen it lags a lot. I have to wait for everything to load and I've erased all texts, pics, cache, etc but it still takes a long time.
