    Day two, and I'm in love. Had S-Off and CM7 within an hour of unboxing. Coming from a Simply Stunning OG Droid (which I thought I was happy with), this phone is ridiculously slick. It's the same feeling I had when I first got the OG Droid after having a Samsung Omnia.

    I'm very happy with it as well. There isn't a phone out that I would trade it for....4G, dual core, 4.3" sceen.....you can have them, this thing is great stock but rooted? Badass.

    @Firefighter - you were right ;)

    @dixie - agreed. I decided on this phone because the only complaints I heard from reviewers were 4" screen, single core, and no LTE. For me, it's the perfect size, Android isn't yet built for multi-core, and LTE is still a beta tech *cough Thunderbolt cough*

    Two years from now, I'll get a 4G quad-core phone. For now, this is the best phone one can lay hands on.

    My only complaint with this phone is the reception. Not good compared to others.

    For me, it's equivalent to my OG Droid both at home and at work (an hour apart). I assume you've updated your PRL with *228 option 2.

    I have the reception complaint as well. I see about 15-20dbm lower than my Droid X and 20-25dbm less than my OG Droid. I have yet to miss a call or anything, but it can slow down 3g in some areas where I get good reception on the DX. My signal at home goes between about -105 to -88dbm where the OG is almost always -72 to -65dbm.

    That and the inability to root (shipped with GB) are my only complaints. It is fast, smooth and battery lasts days. Awesome device.

    I should add that it improved by about 3-5dbm by slightly bending out the contact on the phone that meets the battery door antenna. It makes a little bit better contact and improved the signal a little bit. I can improve it by about 15dbm by adding a 3" piece of 30guage stranded insulated wire and running out the little hole in the back, but I don't use a case, so I don't want a wire hanging out.

    It was more of a test than something I actually use though.

    I explain it in more detail in two posts here http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...59-dinc2-tower-service-issue.html#post1678719
