    So, I really want a droid. I've never had a phone before (and I'm 16, haha) and I'm looking to have some android enabled phone but I don't know which one would suit me best.
    I'm looking for something with:
    16GB or higher Hard Drive
    Physical keyboard (Not 100% necessary)
    Uber-long battery life
    Pretty snappy (something with a decent processor)
    Pretty new.
    Has a decent camera (anything over 1Mp)

    If there's anything close to that, let me know! Thanks!!

    Well I think the closest thing to what you're describing would be the droid 2. It has a physical keyboard, its pretty fast with a 1ghz processor and the ability to overclock. The only thing is battery life but that's fairly universal.

    I had a D1 and loved it but I never used the hard keyboard. I upgraded to the X last week and love it just as much. The larger screen is Amazing but the D2 World Phone is going to be a great phone too. It's a matter of what's most important to you if you don't travel overseas and have no need for a world phone and also want a bigger screen go with the DX. If you you want to have the option to use your phone on all networks go with the D2 World phone. The best thing about Android is you can choose a phone that fits you. The I phone has two memory based choices and you're stuck and you can't customize it like Android. Also the DX is lighter than the D2 because you have no hard keyboard.

    Your never going to get good battery life. Not with IOS or Android or windows, these phones just do to much! You'll learn how to get threw the day and still have battery after a few days. I hate recommending the Droid 2 because I still am 133% in love with the OG droid, but Its not available any longer. (ebay)

    Droid 2 is the best option if your going to want a keyboard.

    I have a lot of love for the OG Droid but I upgraded to the X and the only thing I miss is the unlocked bootloader.

    I was 14 or 15 when I got my first phone, It always bothered me that I kept seeing a bunch of 8 year olds with phones. I recommend the droid 2.

    Ha, I've had that same feeling.

    So, either this forum is extremely bias or the Droid 2 is a bada** phone. It sounds like that's the better choice unless I hear otherwise.

    If you want the hard keyboard and high end, droid 2 is the only current choice.

    The D2 is an amazing phone. And you can't say anyone is biased because the D2 was released with 2.2 and if I had been eligible for upgrade at the time I would have chosen the D2 for that reason. But under the screen and skin the D2 and DX are the same phone.
