    I got it a week before Christmas as I thought it was the best phone at Verizon at the time, and it was. I really did appreciate the phone but the fact that it had a keyboard irked me because I never used it, especially since I could type faster on swype. The weight was something I got used to so I won't complain too much about it. From say day 1 notice the lag when switching screens and still noticed it after the 2.01 and 2.1 updates. Also getting a gimped 2.1 sucked, yes I know you can DL helix launcher for more screens but it sure as hell wasn't smooth and it did force close on me a lot.


    Overall I think it's a good phone, but after picking up the Incredible and I can't even look at the thing anymore.

    +1 It's an android phone too, that's all that matters.

    Got to love that picture!

    And I bet the OP never attempted to OC, which makes it better than the Incredible in speed test at 1Ghz. But I can understand those who take the risk. Hope you like your new Android!

    I've gave up on monitoring temps when on any given day it wouldn't get above 50 degrees celcius, even while playing games/browsing the web.

    another thing, I think the root community is cool, but it's not for me, I really don't want to have to root my phone

    That makes two of us. My experience with the Droid is not the same as yours.

    Like I said, I understand fully. It took a lot to get me to root at first. I saw how great this community was, how much I could change on my Droid once I rooted (Heck, I got sense UI now because of rooting), and how easy it was to return to stock come the day I ever needed too. This sealed the deal, and it is one of the those things that you got to take a risk to get the reward, but the reward you get in the phone itself is sometimes great enough.

    After spending sometime with the Inc in store I could not get over the poor in light proformance of the screen the warmer run time and the blueness of the screen :/ really picked the moto droid for the physical keyboard but now i think i can live with out that but the screen on the Inc totally killed that idea for me :(
