    I really dig the droid's chin, you know that little bit that sticks out at the bottom. Makes it so easy to hold the Droid in portrait mode when I rest my thumb on it, middle finger right behind it on the back and index across the middle. I can't imagine holding it without the chin, I love it!

    Don't even notice it anymore just like the Gold accents. They have "disappeared". It's kind of strange....

    Hell you can barely tell about the gold accents, unless you have the keyboard open, the only button you can kinda see is the camera button, so unless you have the phone backwards, you don't notice the gold speaker grill.

    How bad is this?.... I literally had to 'check' my DROID to see what gold accents you were talking about. LOL. Obviously I don't notice them at all.

    Yea... the chin's nice, but I wish it could grow a beard to match mine :(

    Ok well it sure isn't pretty and the chin doesn't help in that department. :) [ame="http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=cmk4V6pe5Oc&"]Even MotoVerizon doesn't think so.[/ame]

    That is a great idea. Instead of princess skins, the droid could have a goatee, van dyke, or soul patch addon. The van dyke would be a little hard to do, maybe the stash could go over the buttons.

    The Droid design is certainly "Form follows function" instead of designing a phone around being "pretty" (they should do a commerical about that..wait..they already did).

    Ugly or not I think it is the coolest looking phone ever made, I like industrial/high tech looking stuff and the Droid is tuff looking, especially with the shell/holster combo on it.

    Looks like a tool (which is what I consider it) instead of a tiara :)

    I want my "tool droids" to be fuctional and useful.. if I want a pretty droid I wouldn't plan on using it as a phone.(think Cherry 2000) !
