    So i got my Droid on March 5th, and if i wanted to would be able to return it within30 days and get the Nexus one..... Dont think i want to, but was wondering what you think?

    please no flaming or one sided arguments.... Just pros and cons.
    Thanks.

    Nope, I like my physical keyboard, and I like Motorola's products.

    Nope, i'm not for the nexus one. I do not like HTC in the least. I hate the trackball in any phone. The pluses are it has a faster processor.

    I'm in the same situation, just got the droid recently. The speed/memory upgrade isn't worth losing the keyboard in my opinion, so I won't be upgrading.

    I go back on forth on this one. I do not use the keyboard at all, but the Droid is one sexy beast of a phone. I say the deciding factor to me is that thanks to this forum and the developers that provide us with these fantastic ROMs, with all the latest functionality, I now see no reason to switch.

    Not to pile on... but physical keyboard on the Droid FTW!

    With stock settings, processor performance might have been an issue, but with overclocking (even to just 800, much less 1 gHz or 1.25 gHz) there's no way the performance upgrade is worth the switch.

    Moto to Nexus

    Was originally planning to wait for the Nexus One. However, my youngest calmly pointed out that the iPhone had a problematic first year and went through a couple of 'generations' before it stabilized.

    Also, new = retail and roll-out dates always slip.

    Moto has been out for a while so all the kinks, hopefully, should have been worked out.

    So ... the youngest and I picked up two Moto's last night ...

    I think I'm on the Verizon 'VIP' program so may be able update in a year if the Nexus One is worth it ... probably not ... so Moto and I will be BFs through 2012

    Actually, any communications technology past shouting is over-kill for me ... however, just gots to have those electro-toys !

    An chance DOOM will ported to the Moto ?

    If I had the opportunity to switch without penalty (ie: extra dough) I most likely wouldn't, due to the lack of physical qwerty on the Nexus.

    The Droid has other advantages such as multi-touch accuracy, or speaker sound quality as well.

    I will be switching to the Nexus when it hits Verizon. As much as I love my Droid, the call quality is just terrible for me. I switched to the Droid from years of a Blackberry ... and Motorola is just not cutting it.

    I had and returned the droid. I really want(ed) a phone w a physical keyboard, but the droid's is awful. I am considering the n1 vs incredible. Incredible (my understanding is same phone with sense ui) is more likely for me since it will be cheaper through VZ.

    I would love to see a revision of the droid with the few, but VERY significant problems fixed.

    To play devil's advocate, in theory the N1 is more highly overclockable than the droid is (unless I've missed something).

    Of course that's true, doubling 1ghz will always get you more than doubling 550mhz.

    way to close to the equator for my taste...
    The only problem I have with droid is the screen sometimes not coming back on after I end a phone conversation. Some people say to use Screebl, but I've tried it and sometimes it works and for the most part it doesn't.

    Not sure "Upgrading" is the right word :)
