1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Hey everyone was wondering if the Droid 1 was any good. I want to start my friend out with a really great Droid and she really like the 1. Just needed to get some input before I ordered off of eBay

    It's not capable enough for the newer apps and so forth, but I loved that phone. Took a ton of abuse and still works today. Even after I rooted it, not enough space or power for gb or ics, had to retire it for a DROID 4. I like my new phone, but DROID 1 will always be my favorite, its just over three years old and that is ancient in DROID years.

    I hate spending money on phones or expensive services. So I'm still using one on prepaid. I bought it locally from CL for $50 about 9 months ago.

    If you don't add too many apps, then it works okay out of the box. If you do want a ton of apps, then you have to learn a bunch to keep it lag free. I learned a bunch and use things like kernels that have functions that were written only last year.

    That's why I can run mine lag free, but users who retired theirs say it's impossible and to "get a newer phone."

    Thanks for the info not sure what to get her. I'm still running off my original Droid x with no problems with tons of apps. maybe I will upgrade us both to Droid x2 for some pretty good ones on eBay as well.
