    I went to best buy yesterday with my friend to get him an iPod touch, as his was stolen that morning. While he was looking at cases, I walked over to the little booth with the Droid, Eris, and Devour. A BB employee sidled up and she asked me if I needed any help. "No", I replied, "I actually have a Droid." she was shocked and told me how much she wanted one but she never got to really use the display model because it was all messed up. Needless to say, I whipped mine out and showed her all the capabilities of a rooted, OCed phone. I let her play with it and, as I had to leave, she walked to her manager and asked "why don't you sell his?"

    :D

    I know what you're saying..having a stock Droid is so dissatisfying. I really am thinking about taking my back because of the poor performance right out of the box. Thanks for validating this opinion.

    I guess since some of us come from things like Voyagers, we thought the droid was a robot was from the future. I was very happy with out of the box performance.

    I guess satisfaction with a stock Droid is based partly on what phone you came from.

    I was using a Storm before I got my Droid and I was amazed at the speed, responsiveness and abilities of my Droid when I took it out of the box.

    It's all relative . . .

    She probably left it on his phone soon after "I whipped mine out and showed her all the capabilities". :icon_ banana:
