Awesome ! Im hoping that i can buy a droid 3 cheaper when the droud 4 came oht.
I've never tried over clocking Droid 2. but I will now!
I have a D3, loving it. A bit miffed about D4 coming out, but i'm not worried. The technology will only get better.
in fact I had a realization. I love the size of the droid 2. It's perfect. Don't get me wrong I love my D3. But if you could keep the droid 2 size, which was perfect for my needs, give it a droid 3 keyboard, and 4G. That would be my dream phone.
I'd even be willing to wait 1-2 years for technology to make this possible.
But to answer your question, my girl has Droid 2 no over clock, i have Droid 3 no over clock . Whenever I go to her phone I'm so used to my D3 that i notice around a 2 perhaps 3 second speed difference when launchin an app. Nothing significant.

do you love anime? Sailor moon? Ranma?
I just got the Droid 3 from CL for around $150. I also have a Droid 2 which I have flashed to Liberty 3 rom, got all my apps set up and well I'm used to it. The Droid 3 that I got looks new in its box, the girl that sold it to me got the Iphone 4 instead. I have yet to activate it or use it hard but I'm not too impressed. For some reason I think that the display looks better on my D2. I'm hoping that it's just the set up that I have with all the fancy widgets that I have. After all I'm comparing the horrible motoblur to a custom rom with fancy stuff.
Also I like to play a lot of games on my D2. I'm talking about roms like the SNES, Playstation and others. I like the keyboard on my Droid 2 for that purpose the A, W, S, Z keys align good on my Droid 2 to be used as directional keys. The Droid 3 keyboard key alignment is kind of like the Droid 1 keys and not good for gaming. The keyboard looks good otherwise.
I'm not quite sure if I will make full use of the capabilities of the Droid 3. Even though I'm a mobile gamer I play old school games that the Droid 2 has no problems handling even the PSX ones. In my case I'm not quite sure if the dual cores are that much of a jump in performance over my Droid 2, at least in my particular case. What I like about the Droid 3 is the bigger display and perhaps the dual cameras.
Another despoilment for me its the few custom roms available for the Droid 3, kind of like the Droid 2. I was late to the Droid 1 craze so for me the epitome of rom flashing was the Droid 2 running the liberty 2.0 rom. That rom had a good number of themes. The new gingerbread roms coming out are a bit lacking. It's almost like you have to trade off some stuff for something else depending on the rom. I don't blame the devs, Motorola has made it hard and their motoblur is just horrible.
Another thing holding me back is that I can sell this Droid 3 for a good profit. With the money that i paid for it plus the profit I could probably buy something else or even the Droid 4 that I had no idea that it was coming out until I read this thread.

I'm not a huge fan of the D3's Pentile display, either. That's not to say I think everything looks terrible on it, but some things don't look so great. I actually don't mind the way most webpages look, but some of the images I have in my Gallery look sort of crappy. This is especially true when I use SuperDim to keep my display from devouring the battery. With the brightness cranked up a bit, things look sharper.
Sadly, I do prefer the display on the D2G. When I mess with it now, though, it seems way too small. I prefer the way the D3 fits in my hand, but-yeah, its display is not my favorite feature.
I can see how the "D-Pad" on the D3 keyboard wouldn't really suit your needs. I've yet to play any of my NES/SNES games on my D3, but I used to play them on my D2G. You could probably get used to it, but I see what you're talking about. For someone who bangs out lots of emails, the dedicated number row comes in handy. For a gamer, it probably wouldn't.
As far as I can tell, the D4 is still just a mirage. Unfortunately, there are so few Androids with physical keyboards that you're probably better off waiting to see what the thing actually looks like and how the keyboard is laid out.
