    You most likely have a bad app on your device... or a lemon. This is not normal behavior and by no means is a battery pull necessary... let alone doing them daily. This isn't a BB.

    ... wish the camera was better.

    ... wish the Market Place was more mature (e.g. managed/governed).

    ... I wish I didn't have to agree with KZIWarrior but he speaks the truth. The camera needs a lot of improvement.

    No battery pulls here either. Sounds like this a problem with your droid, not droids in general.

    wish...........it was easier to figure things out instead of having to refer to this forum or the lousy owners manual. Had my phone from day one and I "finally" have it pretty well in hand.

    OP, saw your post in another thread. Task Killers are probably contributing to your device constantly freezing. GET RID OF IT!

    I've been using TasKiller for some time now (got my Droid at the beginning of December) and I've had no freeze issues. I've never had to do a battery pull, although once or twice it randomly restarted.

    I merely wish the Droid had multi-touch, Flash, and the ability to save game/app files to the SD card which should all be temporary issues.

    The only other thing I wish for was that there was a little more user control by default without having to root the device. It would be nice to remove unwanted OEM apps by default without voiding your warranty. Perhaps I want to remove the calculator and replace it with a better version I got from the Marketplace instead of having two calculators. You could then just backup OEM .apk's and revert back as you saw fit. Not much to ask for, if you ask me. :)

    Some people have luck with using a Task Killer. To them I say... "If it ain't broke don't fix it". But in the OPs case he's having major issues with his Droid (daily battery pull is not right, nor is freezing) so I wanted to start where a lot of problems arise from... task killers :)
