    Hello. Im new and am going to get a droid. I was thinking of getting a used Droid 1 for metro pcs. What do u guys think is the droid 2 worth the extra couple hundred.

    I noticed today the Droid 2 and Incredible just came down in price on Verizon's website. They are trying to get rid of them I guess due to the Drod 2 Global and the Incredible HD coming out.

    Do you guys think that any of the price drops will drastically affect the cost of a used original droid. I have seen them for about $100. The droid 2 doesn't impress me much more than the first one.

    It boils down to personal preference!
    The Droid 2 stock contains much more powerful hardware(processor and more RAM/built-in ROM), more spacious qwerty sliding keyboard, and slightly sexier looks, I guess.

    The Droid 1, however has a D-Pad (which I freaking love, I don't care what so many reviewers think, I use it for my SNES+SEGA+NES emulators), is extremely customizeable as it didn't have any locked bootloaders or anything, so there is a lot of options for the user who wishes to hack into their phone.

    Hope that helped :)

    Yea that helps a lot. I love to hack into things change them and stuff like that. Thanks for telling me about the locked boot loaders i didn't know that. The d pad does look really cool for the emulators i use emulators on the psp and the old classics are really good.
    Thanks dancedroid

    I don't necessarily want to give you the wrong idea, though.
    You can still "hack" into the Droid 2 to a certain extent (visit the Droid 2 forums for more detail on what you can do to a Droid 2), but there is a lot more extensive "hack" history for the Original Droid.
