    Hey guys, like most, I bought an OG on launch day and have enjoyed it immensely.

    I am trying not to get caught up in the TB vs Bionic debate, but do have a few questions about how the TB relates to the OG.

    Rate 1-10, 10 =best.

    Original Droid

    Call quality 8
    Handset earpiece volume 7
    Bluetooth audio quality 8
    Bluetooth audio volume 7
    Screen resolution 8
    Still picture quality 4
    video quality 6
    Soft KB accuracy 6

    That's all I can think of, feel free to add more entries. However, let's refrain from comparing the battery since there are so many variables with that.

    If the screen resolution is a 6 to you on the Droid you'll be extremely dissappointed on the Thunderbolt..

    Droid 1: 854×480 vs TB: 480 x 800
    so technically, the TB has a lower resolution but it looks damn good.

    Call quality 8
    Handset earpiece volume 7
    Bluetooth audio quality 8
    Bluetooth audio volume 7
    Screen resolution 8
    Still picture quality 7
    video quality 5
    Soft KB accuracy 9 (it's pretty good at predicting what you type and what you meant to type)

    it has been asked before and i definately feel that the TB is major upgrade from the original droid.

    I don't think it's bad at all. Was just saying to the op if he thought that the droid's resolution on a 3.7 inch screen at 854x480 was a 6, then 800x450 or whatever the TB's is on a 4.3 inch would dissappoint him.

    i'm an OG droid snob too.
    its true.

    using the tbolt i noticed first the sound is very muffled...reason..speaker is hidden by the kickstand..boo.

    I don't sit around with my phone on a stand getting calls...its in my pocket where a lot of times i don't hear it anyway...

    next the screen...i believe its a lower resolution on a physically bigger screen...so yeah..not impressed... unless you have bad vision then its a huge difference.

    and finally lack of a keyboard, might be a killer, i'm willing to give it a try but with the droid3 coming soon, and rumored to be a "google experience" device... i have to wait.

    oh tbolt pluses! battery life, if you're on 3g and turn the screen brightness down you will get better battery life.

    its faster!

    cool sense "themes" built in, kinda nice.

    physically larger screen...if you have good vision though this can be bad..cause to me the csm desire looks crisper...reason being? same resolution smaller screen.

    good luck!

    I know other phone are coming, but the fear of a tiered pricing structure has me nervous about waiting to long.

    Simple. a Droid is a real Droid. Thunderbolt is an Android phone made by HTC.

    If it doesn't say Motororla, it ain't a Droid. ;)

    Thunderbolt

    Call quality: 8
    Handset earpiece volume: 9
    Bluetooth audio quality: haven't played with it
    Bluetooth audio volume: haven't played with it
    Screen resolution: 8
    Still picture quality: 8
    video quality: 7 smart phones only comparison
    Soft KB accuracy: 8.5

    I bought the OG on Nov 6 2009, and after rooting, I said that I wouldn't ever find another phone to replace that bad boy. As hard as it is to leave the OG development community, the Thunderbolt is leaps and bounds ahead of a stock OG. Hell it's still better than a rooted OG in my opinion, and I've had nothing but the best experience with my OG thanks to the OG development community. But you have to play with the TB in order to truly appreciate it.

    Despite my decision ^^, I still use my OG around the house because of all the cool ROMS out there.
