Ran the latest version of Android (at the time)
Best Hardware for a smartphone (at the time...nexus one may out class it now)
It looked tough and felt tough...(picture a droid taken on an iphone or an HTC eris/hero in the octagon...no contest right?)
After a month of use...I strictly use the touch screen for emails and texting. I have modded the crap out of the phone...it looks Ridiculously awesome...and it runs smooth as glass. I was already heavily invested in google apps (google docs, calender, talk, gmail, tasks) so the phone has integrated into my day to day better than i could have imagined.
I think that it is a good all purpose smartphone.
-16GB of Storage via SDcard come with the phone (upgradeable to 32)
-Rooting is almost as simple as turning it off and on again
-Amazing camera, moved from an old 5MP Casio and the features smoke it. Which is funny because the Casio is an actual camera and this is an addon
-Can be overclocked pass 1Ghz and stay stable (i'm at 950mhz and its stable as hell)
-Not choppy AT ALL. This is the fastest "phone" I've ever seen, hands down. It handles multi-tasking even at stock speeds like a champ
-Flash support is coming (in b4 HTML5 vs Flash ****storm)
-Google Voice is amazing. I'm saving $30 a month on a texting plan because i just use its application to send and receive.
-Can be tethered extremely easily.
-Speakers are solid, the BEST speaker(phone) I've ever witnessed. LOUD, too!
-Feels like a quality product when you hold it. No joke, its great to just hold this thing.
-Physical keyboard is nice to have. took me a while to get used to the Droid's touch keyboard because i've only ever used a few, hard keyboard was a great learning experiance in those situations where i didn't want to use the touch-screen
-Mixed results on the battery from other people but I find that at the end of the day Im still sitting on close to 30% power (GPS off)
-Google Map's nav is AMAZING.
-I'm not one for a million apps for small ****, but its nice to see such a diverse market. Only apps ever to be taken off the android market were those for tethering because of T-Mobile pressure, you can still get them.
-Every Droid or Android related question can be answered here. The majority of people that come here do so to discuss the droid (and that's a LOT of people). The learning limits are endless
-The OS isn't as polished as the apple OS, but it also isn't as restricting.
That's about all I can say. Read it over and browse the general discussion for a droid. There are plently of these threads and the answers are all around you. At the end of the day your opinion based on your feelings and research alone are what matters.
I am not an IT guy, was really averse to buying an Apple product (apart from my MacBook) IN THE BEGINNING. My MacBook and my Droid have been 2 of the best purchases I have made.
(As far as "apple users dont know a damn thing about computers" : you are correct, they are pretty much idiot proof, thus no knowledge is needed.)
