    Eris is the worse phone ever

    I can't believe how pathetic the Eris is. I am on my third one. The track ball messes up and causes the keyboard to mess up. I am new here and all the post for these phones are how terrible it is and how many problems they have. I get to upgrade in December I want to get the Droid 3 no more virtual keyboards for me.

    Don't discount high end all touch-only phones. They blow the eris out of the water. Most people who buy phones like the Droid 1, 2, or 3 end up using the virtual keyboard more than the physical. The eris is just a low end phone with a slow processor, tiny ram, etc. The glitches can be attributed almost entirely to the low end specs of the phone. Even low end phones now blow the Eris out of the water.

    The last time I used the physical keyboard on my OG droid was to boot into recovery. Don't discount a physical keyboard, but don't go with a low end phone either. I got my wife an Eris, and she grew to hate it after a year. I'll never buy her a "cheap" smart phone again.

    No offense but did you do a poll for this? Most of the people, that I've talked to, have used the physical keyboard more than the virtual keyboard. It's why they bought the D1, D2, D3 to begin with. I use the physical keyboard about 98% of the time. You should research before making an extreme assumption and calling it a final conclusion without any facts/polls/questioning.
    Funny how some people complain more than my 2 year old daughter does.

    No offense my fellow forum friends..but I myself use my physical keyboard much more and faster than the virtual..but I will use the virtual when I'm only typing a quick yes or no..I myself type much faster with the physcial too..faster than swype..(of course that's me and my own skills and preferences) I know more of us buy the slide out phones for for that reason..lol I really wanted the x at the time but this is why the d2 was sold on my preference! But I understand the differences of opinion as the prior phone I had was a dare and I hated it!!! Lol

    I don't have any statistics backing it up, this is mainly from my personal experience. I have worked in a Verizon store for 4 years now and had friends who've had the d1, d2 and now d3 and all of my friends use the on screen keyboard more than the physical keyboard. Some, but not many of my customers end up using the physical keyboard more than the on screen keyboard. I had the Droid myself and used the physical keyboard more at first because I had bad experience with on screen keyboards (LG dare) but after a month I only slid it open to show the keyboard to people, it was all on screen for me.

    I have had the eris, droid 1 and now droid 3. Droid eris was sweet when I first got it, then sucked a few months later. Got my d1 and was sweet, but never really used the physical keyboard, maybe 10% of the time. Now the droid 3, awesome phone, dual core and front camera. Love it, runs fast and the stats have now switched, I use my keyboard 90% of the time. It helps to have a way more intuitive keyboard.

    I love these Eris hate threads. I also love how the posters of these threads always think that it is unanimous that people hate their Eris. My wife and I have had our Erises since Dec. 2009. We are both on our original Erises. We both had trackball issues a couple of months back but those have cleared up. The Eris was perfect for its time, and yet it was inexpensive. I would not have treaded into the smartphone waters any other way. I paid $49 BOGO for our Erises, and we have both been happy with them.

    Mine is rooted, my wife's is stock. No technology is perfect. Our contract is up and we are patiently waiting for the Bionic to be released. However, in the meantime, we are still happily using our Erises.

    The Eris was not the best smartphone on the market at the time of its release. However it was worthy of the smartphone label. A little bit of tender love and care, as well as using these forums to get around the deficiencies was all it took. If you couldn't make the Eris work for you then I suggest an iPhone. I think you'd have been much better with one of those because it requires no brains to operate. (I don't mean that as insult, some people don't want to tinker with their technology, they just want to use it. I don't recommend Android for people like that.)

    Awesome post and I agree...I am like the old saying, hate the game not the player..lol ...Anyway...I am and android Junkie!(if you will)..lol
    And I would even play with a devour if I had one..I am on the Droid 2 and love it..However I do own a brand spanking new Droid Eris..but it was given to me to fix..I was unable as it had no sd card..I do have access to an sd, but am not experienced with rooting the HTC devices..in fact if I could get it past the bootscreen or stock recovery I would try and mess with it..but all I can do is wipedata and reset and right back to the white screen with the droids skating..lol I would do anything for a fix..or a working eris or sd card to get it running...wish I could fix it? Any ideas?
