    Aren't they supposed to have the same specs?
    I just got my wife one and it's cool but.

    My droid is better.

    Why can i get more apps on it with the same memory?

    I have over 100 & she has 1/2.

    Of course the Droid is better... the ally is not a "high end android device" it would be better compared to the Eris or devour. Its a mid level smartphone. Cheeper processor and other parts.

    If they all had the same specs we'd all have G1's, wouldn't we?

    Uh no. Otherwise why would anyone buy one over the other (or upgrade)? They certainly can and do have different specs.

    Not sure what you mean. You have 100 apps and she has 50 and you're using the same amount of memory?

    Or are you asking something else?

    The LG Ally is using a dated Qualcomm processor, the same found in the Motorola Devour, which is nowhere near the processing power of the Moto Droid's OMAP 3430. There is also the lack of a dedicated GPU and the DSP in the Droids' OMAP is also a far superior piece. You have to remember clock speed is NOT the only defining factor. In this case you found out first hand. The Ally while definitely NOT a bad phone for a mid-range device is not in the same league as the Moto Droid/HTC Incredible.
