If you enjoy your family, free time and job...DO NOT get an android phone. They are entirely too addictive and will take up all your free time...lol Love the Droid..best phone I ever had.
+1 for disregarding that study.
Download "free hand note lite" and trace diamond patterns on a friend's phone or do it on a store demo. The store would be glad to help you get that app on the phone to test the responsiveness of the screen.
I can trace straight lines without a problem like this:
and they do not come out like this
If you select the Droid as your next phone you won't be disappointed, but if you are that is what 30 day trial periods are for
If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

those are just my 5 cents
Thx for the replies. I'm going to the verizon store this weekend to try one out, but ill probably end up buying one if I like it because I can always return it if I change my mind. I need a phone now so I can't be waiting for another to come out, and I really like the keyboard on the Droid. Pretty excited to be getting a smartphone: )
As far as touch screen accuracy goes, that article is absolutely false when it comes to the Droid. Using multiple finger drawing apps, I was able to draw perfectly straight lines with my fingers, single and multi touch.
I have owned Palm Treo, Htc xv6800 and Touch Pro and can safely say that the droid blows them all out of the water. I just watched a video on cnet for the new windows mobile 7.0 and I will not be leaving the android market anytime soon. I recommended this phone to my 2 nephews and they are now proud droid owners as well and loving their devices.
Hope this helps you,
Well first post on here and it had to come on this thread. I had a iphone for a year att service sucked so i went to vzw. And iam so happy i did the droid is all around a way better phone then the iphone was. touch screen almost the same just a tiny advantage to the iphone. and thats the only thing better about it..no customization at all. the speed seems about the same. get it..luv it...live it
