Hi everyone. I just got a Droid 2 Global (Verizon). Replaced a Samsung Glyde which was really bad. The touch screen failed after the first year, and no offer from Verizon or Samsung to make a deal on a replacement so I have been working around it till my 2 year contract was up. This is my first experience with a smart phone, and so far, I like the features, although I can never see myself watching a full length movie or TV shows on it, and I am too old for music videos, so prolly they will lose money on me. I must say that using the phone is more intuitive than any other phone I have. I've heard the the battery life is short, and this I am finding is true, lasted barely 8 hours with moderate use. Yes, I got the "Juice" app and it is helping, but only slightly in my opinion. There is no technical reason why they can't give you the option to purchase a longer life battery when you contract for the phone. Its just a lack of customer care, period. So, I'm looking forward to cruising the forums and see what I can get this baby to do. P.S. I am a Sudoku nut and I am having fun with the free Genina Sudodu app right now.
