    I haven't noticed some of the bugs that people seem to be talking about, well, with the exception of the camera, I expected better pics from a 5MP camera (I know, it's "just" a cell phone camera with a tiny lens)the 2MP photos from my AT&T "Go Phone" are sharper than the ones from the Droid.

    Perhaps I haven't noticed many of the bugs, because the "newness" hasn't worn off yet. So far, my Droid has been performing well, and seems to be running fine.

    A Verizon rep told me, when I got the phone to expect a "major update" to the phone to occur sometime after the first of the year.

    My question is, when the update comes, will it be a push to our phones, or will we have to go to a website to d/l and install? Or worse, download to our home computers, attach the phone, and then transfer the update?

    It is inevitable that the next release of any software for any platform will fix some (but not all) past problems, and introduce new ones. The hope is that the problems fixed will satisfy customers enough to overlook hopefully minor bugs introduced. Hopefully Google/Motorola/VZW don't try to overachieve on this or any other release. Also hopefully they spend appropriate time testing. Some updates can leave you wondering if any testing was done or if they even use their own products.
    Interesting, but you didn't really answer my question. The droid is not as fluent as the Iphone. That specific problem, can it be fixed with an update or will we forever have to suffer from that problem?

    Are you using the stock home screen or something like GDE, Home++, Launcher+ or Panda Home? If so, go back to the stock screen. It's going to be smoother than your iPhone and smoother than a baby's butt.
    Thank you to all who have served or are serving our great country. You're always in my thoughts and prayers.

    I have used the stock screen since I purchased... and I have no lag whatsoever... like the previous poster said, smooth as a baby's butt.

    Well...how can any of us answer that? We as non-developers can only speculate. I personally think they will improve it.

    Knowing a lot about how Linux is structured, as well as having a background in development, most of the little hiccups look definitely like software issues. The hardware is highly similar to the iPhone, so I really think a lot of the little issues we are seeing with performance (and I do mean little, at least in my experience with the phone so far) could easily be fixed in a future software update.

    A lot of the people who have installed 2.1 on their rooted phones have mentioned how "snappy" the new version is. Search for 2.1 and see people's reviews, the speed of the droid seems to be increased.

    I'm not using any of those. Don't get me wrong, overall it's smooth for the most part, I just notice a slight stutter when swiping through apps etc.. It's not a big deal, I just noticed on my friends Iphone that it never has any kind of stutter no matter how quickly you swipe through it.

    I don't know, a lot of you seem to know a lot about this type stuff. I'm coming from a crappy blackberry, this is the first time I've ever had a touch smart phone. I do know that the Iphone processor is slightly better than ours, so I wasn't sure if this was a hardware issue or a software issue.

    Are you serious? What do you expect him to do? Ban him? You people need to stop being so damn sensitive.
