So I've decided to start up a list of the quirks I've encountered one or more times on the DROID since I've had it (going on a week now). These are in no way, shape, or form, things that I loathe about the DROID so much as they are... well, things that could most definitely be improved upon with little to no upset on my end. Not necessarily looking for comments, but if you've encountered similar things, well then... sound off!
No particular order, just listing them as I recall.
1. Dead battery... for no reason? I work in a secure facility, so when I go inside, I have to leave the phone... well, OUTSIDE. I keep it in a well-insulated part of my car, but that doesn't mean much. It gets pretty cool outside, so could that be discharging the battery? If so, that's... unfortunate. Both the iPhone I had, as well as the LG VX8700 didn't have any issues here. Can't be the apps or services (i.e., GPS, WiFi, etc.), as I disable them before I go inside.
2. eBay tables: They keep growing and growing and growing... I posted something similar to this in another thread somewhere. When I go to eBay, and then check out the "Won" or other "My eBay" areas of the site, the tables grow. Without any real sign of stopping, really.
3. Schizophrenic vibrate functionality? Every phone I've ever had—period—has had a silent mode with optional vibrating functionality. Now, the DROID has a silent mode, which is slick, but if I use that, it won't show me the icon for the vibrate feature being turned on. And sure enough, if I go into the settings menu and check, it's not actually... checked. So I check it, and there's the icon. But if I toggle silent mode off, then back on, I once again have to manually go back into the settings and turn it on.
More to come as I encounter them.
4. Contacts with IM contact information specified in the contacts have no action assigned... When I click on someone's IM ID in their contact listing, nothing happens. At all. But I'm gonna go out on a ledge here and guess that if John Smith has an AIM ID of jsmithlolz, and I go to click the button, I'm supposed to have an appropriate application installed and configured to handle this type of action? If this is the case, it seems just a tad... unfinished to me. There should at least be a notification to the extent that, "No application has been installed to handle this application."
Issue number 1 has been solved: narrowed it down to operator error. When I was using the maps for the first time, it shut off while I wasn't actively navigating anywhere, so I set the screen timeout to never. I guess what was happening (and had I checked out the battery status monitor, I prolly could've gotten confirmation of this) was I was getting phone calls, and the screen stayed on until it died.
