    Droid2 vs Droid

    I currently have a Droid... Stock Android 2.2 (FroYo) firmware that was pushed out by Verizon as of a couple weeks ago.

    I love it.

    My wife is due for an upgrade and wants a smartphone, but is short on cash seeing as how she has student loans to pay off...
    She offered to take my Droid as a hand-me-down and let me use her upgrade opportunity to get the Droid2. This appealed to me, however, I'd like to know some things...

    1.) Battery life... Stock for Stock battery or Extended for Extended battery... Gimmie an apples to apples comparison. Anyone have any figures? I'd assume doubling the processor speed would cut down on the battery life SIGNIFICANTLY, but all the published figures seem like the Droid2 has a LONGER battery life... Better power management?

    2.) Droid2 runs MotoBLUR... How much different is it? Is it like going from Windows2000 to XP or is it like going from DOS to Windows XP? If it's a significant change, I'll be rooting and installing a new ROM. I like the stock FroYo as it is... (It also took me years to upgrade form Win2k to XP and I'm still not running Vista, much less Win7... I DON'T like change!) Thanks.

    1. I see no difference in battery life between the D1 and D2 but to be honest I have a back up battery, 2 of them actually fully charged so I never really think about it that much. Just to let you know you can get a back up battery on Amazon for 8.00 and a charger on ebay (wall) for 5.00

    Everyone makes a big deal about motoblur. I took it and threw it all in the trash and just set my screens up the way I wanted them.

    I'm getting a D2 tomorrow as a warranty replacement for the D1.

    My D1 was OC'd and I bounced between UD and BB for the last couple months.

    When I get the phone tomorrow, I'll give you some A2A comparison. I also bought the extended battery, so we'll see what happens.

    I compared my D2 to my Rooted D1. Same speed, 1 ghz. I still haven't rooted the D2.

    For me D2 has had better battery life than D1.

    Performance is also better on D2.

    My D1 was overclocked to 1GHz, ran mostly CyanogenMod ROM.

    I hope I have the same results. I preemptively bought the extended battery for $37. It would be nice to have to return it.....

    I love my Droid 2's battery life, I recomend rooting and underclocking 300-600 mhz ondemand for when screen is off and I get a whole days use out of my battery.

    the battery is about the same but if you root you can underclock the phone and that will improve battery a lot! i can get a full 12 hours and more on it and i am constantly using the phone, ive been told that im a lil in love with it haha. i upgraded from a droid one and couldnt be any happier, so get it root it and have fun.
