    State Your Droid PRO'S & CON'S

    I hope battery technology catches up to Droids work load. the other part to this CON is a PRO, which is the battery can be switch with a full charged battery, iPhone can't.

    Goggle search by voice command is awesome.


    I would of like verizon's GPS technology instead of goggles


    Cut and paste text, about time this was available.

    This thread is young, i'm sure as time goes on with usage people like and dislike certain things.

    PROS: Fast, Bright screen, Google GPS, Customizable, Loud speakers (real head turner when i get a message and u hear "DROID" i love that!), good Apps (I know apple has more, but droid has everything I need and then some), Great Touchscreen keyboard (although i've been using the Hardware keys, and they arent so bad either), Web pages with video players are supported. Flash 10 support in 2010.

    CONS: Camera, the constant need to Kill Apps, no PUSH support for POP3/IMAP, phone sometimes acts wonky when trying to sync a contact from facebook, media player isnt that great, only 3 home screens

    Overall though, I love this phone. The issues that I have with it can hopefully be ironed out via software updates. The phone has crashed on me one time [android.process=acore failed?], and my wife's droid randomly turned off by itself last night (we are bringing it back to vzw later today) Other then that, as previously stated, I am a believer that the Droid is a wonderful phone with many potentials to be a great one, in due time we shall see.

    Cons: Music player seems to not support AVRCP which I NEED!
    PROS: Battery life! I get awsome battery life.

    The cons for me are:

    Keyboard - My right thumb naturally wants to settle in around the "L", so typing is a stretch. Space bar is hard to hit. I find holding the device with my right hand and just single finger typing with my left is much easier for me.

    Camera - Slow to get a picture. Quality is not bad, but for a 5 meg camera, they are awfuly grainy.

    Auto Dimming - Too sensitive and always going in and out.

    Vibrate - Could be stronger

    Screen - Sometimes too sensitive. I find myself barely touching a button and end up on a screen I don't want to be on.

    Screen - Sometimes not sensitive enough. It can take several touches to get it to do what I want.

    Battery Life - I can kill it in about 6 hours of playing and in about 12 hours of just letting it sit doing nothing

    Pros:

    Loud Speaker - When it rings, you know it

    Wi-Fi - No data reception out here. WiFi helps let me use it!

    Screen Res - Nice. Sometimes too sensitive, sometimes not sensitive enough.

    Pros:
    1. Overall "fluidity" of the OS (Coming from a Storm)
    2. Google voice search is incredible.
    3. Touch screen is amazing. (Again, coming from a Storm)
    4. Speed
    5. Browser
    6. Contrary to popular opinion, I think that It's a great looking phone.

    Cons:
    1. Camera (for obvious reasons)
    2. Keyboard is just ok.

    I hate to gripe about a new (and expensive!) phone, but I can see myself becoming royally frustrated in the future about the fact there are no Call/End buttons on the device, it's all on the touch screen.
    But, a pro: it beats the pants off my old phone - a 3 year old RAZR!

    Pro's: battery lasts for a longer period vs the imagio I returned to get the moto droid, also the battery recharge is very fast (last night it went from 15%-90% in about 40 minutes

    Cons: keyboard is a tight for space especially along the top row of keys.
    No speeddial especially for voicemail access.
    No manual included, had to find on internet to download to PC
    Not having a cool weather app like htc has on their phones (hopefully there will be a hack for that!)
    Other than that it is a cool phone so far.

    Isn't that sort of like complaining that the call/end buttons on a non touchscreen are on the device itself and not on the screen?
