"The DROID2 is the worst phone I've ever owned"1.0 starson by DogDeadByRaven
Pros: Started out decent
Cons: Oh the cons on this phone... 1. The pictures it takes are pathetically bad my 6yr old LG takes better pictres than this thing. 2. Battery life is a day maybe a day and a half if you don't use it. 3. It randomly slows to a crawl for no reason. 4. Randomly
Summary: I am on my third DROID2 and got the 1st one only in Nov. Got a replacement in Feb (Only after much trouble in them swapping it out at all) , then another in June, then another in July. I have a full body protective case on it, and haven't abused them yet they all somehow end up with the same issues over and over thats somehow not a phone defect? The first thing that really threw me off on these phones it its a smartphone yet it has no idea if I have a voicemail or not? Even my first LG cell phone back in 2002 could tell me that. I hate having to call my voicemail 2x a day to see if I have a voicemail since I have to shut my phone off while at work. How can a $500 smartphone not know that but a basic cheapy $9 prepaid phone can? The camera on this thing is basically useless, anything close up it blurs if you don't have tripod steady hands, and anything far away is blurry pixilated and the colors are off. The slider keyboard was very nice and what drew me to the phone in the first place. Sadly after only a few weeks use it started to randomly type as many of letters as it wanted and I had to stop using it when it started typing multiples of every other letter. Its hard to write someone and have your text [ Loooook liiiiiiiikkkkkkkkeeeeee tthiiiiiiissssss] try editing that over and over and over again. Why have a phone with a physical keyboard thats not designed to last more than the initial 30 day return policy of the carrier? Its sad when the Verizon store by my work sees me stroll in the door anbd all they ask me is what issue with my phone I'm having now. They won't even ask how they can help me today because they already know the answer. My last phone was a Samsung Rogue, it took great pictures, and I dropped that thing a good 50 times and it still worked. They keyboard worked perfectly to the last day I used it. I only replaced it because I needed a smartphone that had full webpage capabilities. The DROID2 was not the right choice. My mom got this same phone and has hated it since about 2 months after she got it.
