    Not me. I have a Moto Droid. I would have for the better keyboard. but after learning about the detailed specs of each phone, I dont want something that similar. I dont want the Inc., but I would probably pick the Inc. over the Ally, and I want a physical keyboard....lol

    Now, if I didnt have the Droid? Tougher question. I'm not even sure I woulda got the Droid if the Ally was out, the keyboard looks better. Since I know the touch screens are so good on the Droid and Inc., I might have got an Eris.

    Capacitive FTW.

    **All this would have been before doing research on the specs of the phones and before I learned about rooting***

    And lets not forget reception. My phone has to be a good phone first and foremost.

    If the Ally had better reception? Even tougher question.

    PS: This poll isn't going to accomplish much since most here already have a Droid of some type :blink:

    LOL! I wasnt expecting that big pic. lol Please tell us how it is when you get it. And at $49 NE2?!?!

    I see I forgot to put price into my equation..(I know the Droid can be had for $20 now but still, I brand new smartphone that cheap?)

    But with ppl that want a physical keyboard, I wonder how many Droids are gonna sell now? That keyboard definitely looks nice on the Ally. I dont think most folks in the general public will research the detailed specs. I can see the Ally getting decent sale numbers.

    :) His name is Hewson -- I found him in Google images. I'll gladly post a review soon after. I'm hoping for improved battery and phone quality without losing much processor performance. The Moto and HTC Droids are $149 with my NE2+online discount.

    In California, there is a Buy One Get One Free going on for the Moto Droid. I don't know if that applies with your NE2?? But if so, that makes for a better price......

    Phone price is pretty insignificant considering data plan. I tried the Moto Droid and had unresolvable issues with phone quality and short battery life so I returned it.

    Looks like a BB storm with a slider,not a bad thing, just very similar looking to it. I 'm interested in performance on this as well, looking forward to your review!

    MobileTechReview: LG Ally
    • "800 x 480 capacitive touch screen is very sharp and bright-- we like"
    • "The user interface is responsive, and we had no issues with lag"
    • "There's an embedded d-pad on the right (handy for text editing)"
    • "has excellent call quality on both incoming and outgoing ends"
    • "We were pleasantly surprised that it held its own against the HTC Incredible and Nexus One"
    • "Battery life is solid for a high end smartphone and we had no problem making it through the day with heavy use"

    All I can say is do a compare on Verizon's site between the Ally, Moto Droid, and the HTC Inc. You lose with the Ally.
