The advantage of the Inc2 is that she would want it and then I can get whatever is the best 4G phone in 8 months. Besides, Amazon has the Inc2 for $80 for a family plan upgrade.
    8 months? Wow, by then we'll probably have the Droid 4, Droid X3, and the Dinc 3 coming out and maybe even quad core phones lol

    Many devices "actually work".

    What you need to keep in mind is that posts on any discussion forum site (not just Droids/smartphones but any product out there) will be skewed as posters will post because they have a problem. It's extremely rare for people to make "All is well" posts. Don't count on posts for any sort of statistical analysis. I frequent forums not only for my Droid but for my cars, my espresso equipment, my Tivo, my shaving gear, etc. If I made assessments solely on discussion forum posts I wouldn't own anything as every product would appear to be extremely faulty.

    Forum posts don't account for the countless users who don't even use forum sites so consider that as well. You're dealing with an extremely limited sample (look at the number of registered users versus total sales figures for all devices discussed here) on top of a medium that skews posts towards complaints.

    This is why statisticians specialize in their field. They need to be able to account for such biases.

    That should be your clue. Have you not seen the countless posts by people with Droids and Allys that do have problems? It's like that with any model (or any product as stated above). Again, people post when they have problems or questions.
