So, after having my Moto Droid for over a week now, I've been able to form a pretty solid opinion of it in stock form. Haven't rooted it yet, and don't plan on doing so for at least another month or so, possibly longer.
Here are a couple things I've noticed or come across in this past week:
-Any one else also keep bumping those darned menu, home, search and back buttons on accident? I even have an Innocase that helps a bit, but I keep slipping onto them occasionally!
-Keyboard is difficult to use, as many people have read. My fingers are becoming more adept at using it, though, takes practice
-Swype is an absolute must install!
-After getting a hang of the phone, learning to tap the power button to lock the phone and put the display to sleep is a must.
-I feel that the micro-USB port is placed very well, as if it's a great place to anchor the phone on my hands. Anyone else?
-The phone isn't as large as I imagined it would be, which I guess I thought it was going to be absolutely massive. Isn't as large of a footprint (or handprint, depending on how you look at it)
-Why won't the homescreen change it's orientation unless I slide the keyboard out? Every other application does it, I kind've expect it there, too. Am I missing something?
Again, these aren't complaints, merely observations. I love the phone, so don't tell me "return it and get something else". It's a really impressive piece of hardware, and I have no buyer's remorse whatsoever with this piece of tech.
Truthfully, it's my first smartphone, so I'm still adjusting to the fact that I have all of this data at my fingertips. Email on the crapper? News in the passenger seat? Weather at the dinner table? Yeah, it's awesome.
