    BGR reports that the Motorola Droid 2 has the lowest return rate on VZW and the signal fluctuation issue is supposedly non-existant.

    Droid 2 owners, your thoughts?.

    Full article:

    On the fence about the Motorola DROID 2? Wondering if people are happy with the device? Well, we have been told that the Motorola DROID 2, according to one of our connects, has the lowest smartphone return rate on Verizon Wireless. Not only are people apparently thrilled with the device, but that pesky fluctuation issue with the antenna doesn’t seem to be a problem either, as we have also been informed that the DROID 2 has one of the lowest dropped call rates on the carrier. Who knew.

    Well... could also be that only 11,000 units were sold in the first month or 2, I forget if it was one month or 2 months. Not saying the phone is bad at all, but when you start comparing return rates you also have to look at the total number sold.

    my droid 1 was stolen and replaced it with the droid 2.
    truthfully, i miss the original droid. the store didn't have any in stock and no certified preowned droids were in stock either.
    the droid 2 is nice. waiting for the r2d2 version or might switch to the fascinate.

    I think for the average everyday user the D2 is all one could ask for in a device, it's the U/G hacking community that has issues, and it's only the locked bootloader and blur that is holding it back for us

    Yeah, what is the % return rate...that's more accurate of how good technically the phone is.

    Bought a D2 for my younger brother. After tinkering with it for awhile he will be getting a slightly used D1. I'm not giving this thing up even though I have an DX as well. This is a really smooth, snappy and bug free device (at least in my experience) and I have no trouble believing that people are not returning these devices.

    They would need to compare how long the Droid 2 is out compared to other phones. Maybe there'll be problems later on to cause returns.

    I got the D2 on a contract upgrade while I was also getting my Second D1 being replaced after the Froyo update bricked it. Seeing as how I'm not a rooter, I am in love with the D2. The keyboard is miles better than the D1, and it's just alot faster and smoother. I wouldn't go back to a D1 unless I had to wait on a replacement D2.

    I kinda miss my D1 but at the same time happy with the D2.

    Besides the usual blur and bootloader comments my only complaint is I have found is that my 3g seems alittle spotty now.

    Love my D2

    I have had my D2 for a couple of weeks now and don't have the screen freeze issue my D1 had. In addition, battery seems to last a good day and a half with moderate use.

    I am really loving my D2.

    Did they fix the inaccurate touch screen? Like you would press it and it would flick really fast to the end of the page? my refurb D1 does it just as my original D1

    Motorola did prove that the Droid 1 had the worst touch screen out of two HTC phones and the iPhone 3GS..

    It doesn't even go to 1x when it does it, it completely loses data.

    I was a Droid 1 owner that was rooted and ROM'd. As an IT professional that uses my phone for work practically 24/7, I consider myself a power user.

    I was forced to upgrade and chose the Droid 2 after a lot of research. I loved my OG Droid but this one is even better. I'm even a fan of some parts of blur (not ALL but there are useful features).

    I'm very happy with it and love it even more than the original.

    I have had my D2 for 3 weeks now and just loving this phone. I have heard and seen on the different websites where people are having so much trouble with their D2. But hey when you put out a new phone you can always get a lemon and apparently they made alot of lemons...lol except for mine isn't one though. I have had no problems what so ever with mine. And the blur thing not sure what that is but hadn't had a problem and the battery is just fine for my use.

    I personally love the subtle updates that came with the Droid 2. I sold my Droid on ebay and upgraded. Wasn't feeling it with the Droid X, a bit too big for my liking.

    So far, no issues with signal quality. Phone is fast, smooth and solid.

    I love my droid 2, have had it for a couple weeks. The battery life wasn't that good so i upgraded to the veizon extended battery, now it last all day. The longest it has gone without a charge is about 18 hours which i think is pretty good. I have only had the phone lock up once, but i was listening to music and the screen started to flicker. So that's the only time i had to reboot it.

    I live out in the country and the 3G service isn't good but i have never lost a signal while talking to txting.

    Uh, folks, the return rate is a percentage.
