Ok, trying not to be too negative here...
I have had the Moto Droid for 1.5 weeks now. Running 2.0.1.
I have noticed that Droid does not do the following (or do the following correctly)
Anyway, Like I said, I'm not trying to be too negative, and I do love the phone, I just wish the stuff I mention above was included "out of the box".
- Doesn't display 95% of PDF attachments in default E-Mail (not G-Mail) program. [k-9 does]
- Doesn't display many embedded pictures in G-Mail.
- Doesn't let you empty your G-Mail trash. It appears to work, but when I log into my G-Mail on PC, items are all still in trash.
- Doesn't have any flash support yet.
- Doesn't allow incoming conference calling. If I am on the phone with someone, and someone else calls me on call waiting, I can't merge the two calls together to allow all three people to talk together on one call. Can do this for outgoing, just not incoming.
- Doesn't have a calendar widgit that auto refreshes. (mine stays on one dat until I reboot the phone, which I don't feel like doing every day)
- Doesn't have a long enough USB cord.
- Doesn't have Mini USB socket like most previous Moto phones. (Droid has micro)
- Doesn't have an "out of the box" solution for syncing Microsoft Outlook items (contacts, calendar, notes, tasks) for users who are not in an exchange environment.
- Doesn't have a way to clear Android Market search history.
- Doesn't vibrate when using the silence feature on screen lock.
- Doesn't have easy global volume control.
- Doesn't pick up sound very well while recording video.
- Doesn't support many MPEG video files. (need to convert to MP4)
- Doesn't have stock multi touch features
- Doesn't filter free apps / games on search in market
- Doesn't switch home screen to landscape when rotated.
- Doesn't work with my bluetooth as nicely (clearly) as my Moto Razr did.
- Doesn't have a stylus. (most cases not needed, but sometimes it would be great)
- Doesn't have an app to create / edit word or excel docs.
I know the market has tons of custom apps, but Paying the money for the phone, the accessories, the voice plan, the data plan, I don't find it necessary to have to pay money to install apps that the phone should have included in the first place.
I have found some free apps to cater to some of my needs, but not all of my needs. I think Google kinda left out the "corporate world" in their thoughts when writing the Android software, and developing the phone.
If anyone out there has found solutions or work arounds to any of the things I mentioned, please share.
