    Going from D1 to D3 What can I expect?

    Ordered a pair of Droid 3's friday will be here tuesday. got the BOGO. Wife is upgrading from LG3. I'm going from D1 to D3. Currently there is nothing wrong with my D1. I think I will just keep the D3 in the top dresser drawer until D1 craps out. What can i expect from D3 that I'm not getting with D1?

    Having owned a stock D1:

    You are getting
    1) a much snappier phone.
    2) a useful keyboard (really the best qwerty on the market)
    3) smoother web browsing and the ability to actually use flash with no problems.
    4) Motos cool widgets like quick contacts, news and inbox (I really like them)
    5) 16 gigs of internal storage ( I have a 32gig sd card in mine giving me a whopping 48 gigs of space!)
    6) 1080p video recording ( looks amazing in the right light)
    7) global capabilities ( I will find this useful)
    8) Motos UI, Its pretty cool but if its not your thing you can always switch to a home replacement.

    What your not getting:
    1) Unlocked bootloader
    2) Vanilla Android
    3) Physical camera button
    4) Pictures without a bluish tint in the stock app (bandaid fix with certain setting in Camera360 or ZoomFx)
    5) Easy to remove battery door

    The pros outweigh the cons. I had a rooted D1 running SS 5.4 OC to 1 gig and this phone just crushes it on performance, especially with web browsing which has always been a pet peeve of mine. You will be happy.
    LT* and guidot like this.

    One of my biggest gripes about the D3. I hate not having that dedicated camera button.

    +1, I came from a D1 and agree on every one of your points. I also was a faithful SS rom user and I must say the D3 still blows it away. Gingerbread on the D1 was a bad experience anyway.

    No problem, I also forgot to mention the front facing camera. It works with the hacked version of skype.

    I went from the D1 to the 3, and I love it! The only negative I see is the blue tint to the camera, but I can edit pics when I save them to the computer. I love the speed. I love that Swype works on this phone (the beta on the D1 quit working for me). I love the screen size and the speed. My D1 had gotten really laggy. Honestly, I can't think of anything I DON'T like about this phone, other than the blue tint.

    Had about a week now to play with my D3, coming from the D1. Love it so far. It seems light years faster that my D1, plays websites with streaming video extremely well, and hasn't lagged or force closed once so far.

    My only issue so far is the lack of "pinchability" for the pictures. I'm used to being able to seamlessly pinch pics right after taking them...it seems this is impossible unless you view your pictures in the actual Gallery app, and even when doing that, it's hardly smooth.
