Nope have the droid. Though my wife is getting it tomorrow I reckon since she preordered it from verizon. Though I would like to have a physical keyboard then at of the droid phone..
I don't use my physical keyboard much on my droid, but when I need it...I need it.
Love my Motorola Droid but I have had quality LG products in the past but still don't think that it is for me.
The LG Ally looks like a nice solid phone with great features but I'm going to stick with my Moto Droid.
This is my first post, hello :).
I recently sold my moto droid and got the LG Ally and I am very happy with my decision. The droid was great for everything except phone calls and I couldn't take it anymore. I decided to try the Ally since it was getting great reviews on the Verizon website and it was a good price. I am so happy that I did! It has so far been a great phone, and the keyboard is much better. Best of all, I can hear people and they can hear me! I have had several LG phones and have always been happy with them. I didn't want to give up the android OS either, it had to be an android phone.
From my experience with other LG phones they are all cheap, plasticy "kid's toys" that are way too easy to break, plus the audio circuits aren't that great. My sister got rid of her LG Env3 and replaced it with a Moto Droid. The LG Ally is featured in Iron Man 2, would be cool to get a phone that's as durable as the Iron Man suit! :)
Bought my GF the Ally last week. It's her first smartphone. I set it up for her with some goodies. She loves it. It packs the same processor as the Droid. I'm O/C'd so mines much snappier. Good, solid build on the Ally. She got it for free as she had a $100 upgrade credit on her account.
I like being able to show her the power of Droid, even if she only plays with what I set her up with. :) When will this thing be rooted??!
Naw, it doesnt have the same processor as the Droid. The Droid has a OMAP 3430, 550Mhz. The Ally has a lesser one:

It is powered by a Qualcomm MSM7627 600 MHz processor. This means you might not be seeing Flash on the Ally. Adobe said back in February that Flash will only run on phones with ARM Cortex-A8 processors and 50MB or more of available RAM, like the Nexus One, the HTC Incredible, and Motorola Droid, but the Qualcomm MSM7627 is a less powerful ARM11 processor.
I agree that phone calls are not the moto droid's strong suite. However, everything else the droid does makes up for its shortcomings in that department. Kind of depends on how many calls you deal with per day. I only deal with less than 20 calls per day. I used to deal with more calls. At that time it would have been an issue.
I'm probably most dissatisfied with the voicemail of Verizon. I'm using a non verizon app for voicemail, at this time. It gets me by, but a market leader like Verizon shouldn't have a weak spot with voicemail. I realize this is off-topic, but it is associated with phone calls of the droid.
