    One of my favorite tech video stars, Mr Brownlee, posted a photo on twitter of the new Droid Z and the 2009 Motorola Droid. And as we come upon 7 years of droid-ing we have all had different experiences with the Verizon Droid line. Some of us have been on board since the beginning, other before, and some after.

    What was you top 3 favorite Droid phones you have owned over the years. And by droid I am referring to the Verizon android line that had the Droid branding. This includes the lesser known Droid Eris (which was overshadowed by its cousin) and the HTC Incredible (which was later made a Droid-line phone).

    What was your favorite Droid commercial?

    Feel free to share other Droid moments below as we celebrate 7 years of Droid Does.

    I never had the pleasure of owning a Droid but I am contemplating it if the Note 7 doesn't wow me.... I will say when the Droid commercials first came out everyone thought I was nuts because at the time I had an iPhone but still walked around saying "DROID"....

    This was my favorite. I love the ending, "...on the ever expanding Android Market, when there is no limit to what Droid gets, there is no limit to what Droid Does" as the spheres explode.

    I had a Palm Pre+ during the initial droid craze, but moved to a Droid Bionic on its release day.

    My Gmail notification sound is still "Droooooiiiid!"

    I only had the Droid and Droid 2 Global (sent Droid 2 in for RMA and I got the Global as a replacement).

    The Droid 1 was my absolute favorite though. Even with the android phones I had after that such as the HTC Thunderbolt and so on, the OG Droid had everything I wanted at the time. I still have it. Might power it on just for fun after seeing this thread :)

    The Droid Bionic is what brought me to DroidFourms. I had the Droid X and the X2 before that. I loved all of my Droid phones.

    7? Seems longer. I guess because so much as changed and advanced in those 7 years. I went with the HTC Droid Eris back in 1999 because the Moto Droid felt like a Volkswagen in my pocket! Plus I've never seen the necessity of a physical keyboard, though I have considered phones since with them.

    Droid DNA, a really nice device IMO; and it ended my servitude to Verizon.
