    Today was a kinda sad day b/c a took my Droid back to day to revert back to my omnia with winmo 6.5 which pretty much blows. But I kinda just want to see where the developing goes and whether or not I will wait for the nexus. I just could not get past the laggy stock home screens, laggy scrolling(overclocking did help but....), and that darn low light camera(my omnia blows the droid camera away). I know it's kinda petty complaints but I didn't want to get stuck with a phone I am not 100% happy with especially if the nexus comes in a couple months.


    Oh and that whole clause about being able to return Items that were purchased back between Nov14th - Dec 10th or whatever worked LOL I got to use the Droid over a month for free (Kinda) I didn't even have to pay the 35 restock fee!

    Why would I take it back?

    And to go back to a WinMo phone? :blink:

    The camera I can understand some dismay, even though it's not as bad as people claim. I have some great shots to disprove them :)

    But the lag... not normal of a functional Droid. May have been apps loaded on the phone, such as an Anti-Virus.
    Sorry to see you go.

    I am glad you got something you are comfortable with ...if you get a Nexus see us at nexousoneforums.net. Maybe you'll change your mind after a bit and come back :). If not good luck

    If the winmo phone works better for you, I'd say go for it. Gotta have the phone that suits you best. Don't worry about what others say.

    What you saw as problems were software issues. I myself would have waited around. The lag you see is not because the Droid is underpowered. The software just needs some optimization.

    You have to be happy with the device you choose. If the Droid does not work for you by all means choose something hat you feel good with.

    Good luck sorry to see you go.

    Goodbye and good luck. You didn't really expect a whole bunch of people to say "I took my Droid back too" did you?;)

    if you arent satisfied with the droid, and didnt have to pay the restocking fee, i think its good you took it back. maybe in 3 months the nexus one with keyboard will come to verizon, and you can get that, but if you're not happy with that expensive of a phone, get rid of it until one comes out that you like.

    Seen the video comparing the N1 and Droid on this forum? No appreciable differences when browsing or or transitioning between screens.

    The difference will only get smaller once we get 2.1.
