    No I'm not that impressed either. It doesn't seem to be much thinner without a physical keyboard. I Love the physical keyboard and I love the resolution On my Droid

    Those people complaining are the loud few with problems. My Droid hasn't crashed once since I've gotten it and I haven't had any problems besides the camera autofocus bug, and that fixed itself. As for the physical keyboard, I love it, but I'm coming from an env2, so my standards aren't as high as say, someone coming from a Blackberry.

    Nope.
    I too have grown to love the physical keyboard...
    I'm not digging the protruding 'hard key's on the HTC

    droid phones

    purchased droid phone and i hated it. Keyboard stinks and i could not send a group text message. The camera on the droid is horrible. The Eris has a great camera. I returned the droid and got an Eris. I loved it except it has the weakest vibrate setting and i could not feel it vibrate in a holster or any other type of belt holder. I returned the Eris as well. I am hopeful the Bravo/Passion addresses these issues in addition provides the dragon chip set and Android 2.1 operating system. Can't someone make a great pone for the verizon network? In all fairness my son loves the Eris, but he keeps in in his pocket.

    Droid does group text. Handcent does this. Not perfectly but it does it. Should've done some research there.
    Camera is good on Droid, just low light it struggles. And it has a flash, so how is the Eris, with no flash better?
    Vibrate is a little weak.
    Droid is a great phone. It's 2 months old, I think you gave up way too early and had the wrong attitude. Sorry to hear that.

    this phones battery life will be horrible. I think that developers are so set on turning phones into computers that they tend to forget that we use these devices mostly away from charges. The droid and droid eris battery is average already with data use included, which is a major selling pint of the phone, so imputing a processor that has double the speed, running the same UI's, really makes you question is the cell phone industry about flashing off your new toys, or providing high quality, dependable, products.

    I did my research, but somethings you don't learn until you own it. I picked up the Handcent app still inferior for group texts and the camera on the Eris takes beautiful photos in lower light situations than the Droid. Droid is a brick of a phone with a lousy keyboard that will fail as word of mouth spreads. Eris is a much better phone, but in my line of work a decent vibrate setting is a must.

    I just got my Droid last week and I love it! I am just worried about the staying power of it with all these other phones coming out. Anyone else having these concerns?

    There is a lot of discussion on Droid vs Nexus One on this thread:

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...you-return-your-motorola-droid-nexus-one.html

    But to answer your question from my own opinon... No, I am in no way regretting my Droid. Heck, even the Engadget Review of the Nexus One had the Droid coming out on top.

    The Droid is a great device, one that will be even better with the 2.1 upgrade, so no, I don't think there is anything lost by going with the Droid over Nexus One.

    But that is just my opinion of course.
