A month ago, I gave up on AT&T. I loved my iPhone but I could simply no longer deal with dropping calls all the time. I had tried a friend's droid and I liked it enough. I've had it for a month now, and while there are features that simply beat the iPhone hands down, I feel that it's simply not as polished as the iPhone. I have simply come to the realization that I regret switching to the Droid.
The nav feature is absolutely amazing. There is no denying that. I also love the fact that it's a (mostly) open platform. However, there are just too many things that suck about this phone:
The voice quality is AWFUL. Every person I talk to says I sound like a robot and they can hardly understand me. As many of you know, this is not just my phone's issue.
The internet browser is pathetic (whether it's the default one, dolphin, etc). If it's not a mobile website, scrolling around is nearly impossible. Incredibly laggy and jumpy and overall the opposite of the iphone browsing experience. Why, when the droid is so much more powerful, does it lag MILES behind the iphone in browsing the internet? It beats the blackberry browser, but that's really not saying much. Furthermore, when you try to click on a link in the browser, half the time it thinks you clicked on something else, and you end up having to go back and reload the whole page over again.
The whole UI is just slow and buggy. I was hoping 2.1 would fix this, but it seems like that will never come down from google/verizon.
The build quality of this phone is terrible. It's got creaky plastic, it feels cheap and the screen slides open when it's in my pocket.
The battery is awful- I make a point of hardly using it, turn off GPS and dim the screen as low as it will go, and it still barely makes it through the day.
Sorry this post was so long. I'm just really disappointed in this phone, because it DOES have some great features, and COULD be a great phone. I just feel like they rushed it out the door without doing basic tests. Please, someone give me a reason to stick with this phone... tell me what I'm missing!
