    I've given this phone a chance the last couple of days, but between the extreme heating up of the phone and ridiculously low battery life, it's time to go! It's obvious that Verizon rushed this phone out to make sure it was on everyones holiday list. My ear burns if I am talking on the phone for any longer than 5 mintues and will burn your hand if you are browsing a website or playing a game for longer than 5 mintues. As expecting with a smartphone, the battery will have a short lifespan each day, but this is just not manageable...question is do I get the Incredible, X or 2?

    Why did you get the Pro?
    Hardware Keyboard?- go with the D2

    Inc is on its way out (rumor)

    DX is huge.

    I happen to like the droid pro's design. If you don't use landscape very often and prefer a portrait keyboard like a blackberry or treo then its really the only option. It also seems a little quicker than the original droid 2 and the droid x...just my opinion. Nonetheless, its going to have to take something much better than the droid pro (or any droid out now) to make me get rid of my original droid.

    The only reason I got the Pro was bc of the physical keyboard, so the D2 would be my next choice more than likely. I also tend to drop my phone every know and then so I would be concerned if I got the Incredible or X that it would crack the screen within a short period of time.

    The simply solution would be to get a case, screen protector and insurance. Insurance is your best bet. If the screen gets cracked, they will replace it with a new one.

    I dunno. I got one on the first day and this thing is AMAZING!!!! I've never had a phone where the battery doesn't heat up a bit, but all in all this is a great device.

    Running Hot = Advanced Task Killer?

    Just speculating.

    I havent noticed my droid pro heat up even the slightest bit, my battery has also been very comparable to my droid. I can get through the day with no issues with heavy usage.

    I am constantly on:
    wifi
    google voice
    grooveshark
    whatsapp
    gmail
    facebook

    maybe some droid pro's coming out are lemons, mine has been awesome thus far.

    I returned mine late yesterday......poor call quality overall, poor battery life, and since I came from the Droid X, I had issues with my old eyes and the smaller screen. For those who are getting or keeping the Pro, I hope it works better for you than it did for my needs.

    I'm back to the X forums, so take care folks :)

    I'm returning my Pro for the D2 Global this afternoon (store out of stock until 2pm). For me it is the heat, the poor reception/dropped calls, and the fact it will not synch with exchange. There is something else wrong with it - it is slow as anything. It took ~5 seconds longer to start the speed test when put next to a D2 - latency testing? I think that a defect in the phone itself, which leads me to believe that I may have a lemon.

    I've tracked down my heat and battery problem: it happens when I first sync a huge number of emails/calendar items/etc. The first time I sync, the radio is running continuously (perhaps for hours) while everything gets downloaded.

    Once the initial sync's are all done, the heat issue seems to go away.

    I had bought an Evo for Sprint.but when I saw the Droid X, I really wanted that phone but once I saw the Droid Pro, I felt like this was my dream phone, I just cant deal with all touch screen phones. Sure theres different keyboards you can download and Swype worked pretty well for me but it still cant compare to physical keys. I think if I wanted an all in one juggernaut I'd get the Droid X. If I want something thats gonna make texting easier, responding to emails faster and just overall my experience owning a cell phone more efficient, I'd go with the Pro. But good luck with that DroidX, I drool over that screen lol.


    oh and I forgot one thing..being able to use this phone overseas thats another thing that sold me on this phone. I doubt I'll still be using Verizon since I"ll be in Korea for a good year but being able to just pop in a local prepaid sim is more than enough for me.
