    Thumbs down Returning This Phone Already

    I've given this phone a chance the last couple of days, but between the extreme heating up of the phone and ridiculously low battery life, it's time to go! It's obvious that Verizon rushed this phone out to make sure it was on everyones holiday list. My ear burns if I am talking on the phone for any longer than 5 mintues and will burn your hand if you are browsing a website or playing a game for longer than 5 mintues. As expecting with a smartphone, the battery will have a short lifespan each day, but this is just not manageable...question is do I get the Incredible, X or 2?

    Why did you get the Pro?
    Hardware Keyboard?- go with the D2

    Inc is on its way out (rumor)

    DX is huge.

    I happen to like the droid pro's design. If you don't use landscape very often and prefer a portrait keyboard like a blackberry or treo then its really the only option. It also seems a little quicker than the original droid 2 and the droid x...just my opinion. Nonetheless, its going to have to take something much better than the droid pro (or any droid out now) to make me get rid of my original droid.

    Ive seen a couple people complain about the unit heating up in other posts.

    The only reason I got the Pro was bc of the physical keyboard, so the D2 would be my next choice more than likely. I also tend to drop my phone every know and then so I would be concerned if I got the Incredible or X that it would crack the screen within a short period of time.

    The simply solution would be to get a case, screen protector and insurance. Insurance is your best bet. If the screen gets cracked, they will replace it with a new one.

    I dunno. I got one on the first day and this thing is AMAZING!!!! I've never had a phone where the battery doesn't heat up a bit, but all in all this is a great device.

    Running Hot = Advanced Task Killer?

    Just speculating.

    I havent noticed my droid pro heat up even the slightest bit, my battery has also been very comparable to my droid. I can get through the day with no issues with heavy usage.

    I am constantly on:
    wifi
    google voice
    grooveshark
    whatsapp
    gmail
    facebook

    maybe some droid pro's coming out are lemons, mine has been awesome thus far.
