"I returned it after two weeks for a Blackberry Bold"1.5 starson by goodguy1000
Pros: Navigation is good.
Cons: The Droid's battery lasted for a matter of hours at best, even if it wasn't being used. The Droid was heavy and got very hot in my pocket. I found the Droid touch screen very hard for me to use. I kept accidentally selecting things when trying to scrol
Summary: I had a Verizon Blackberry Curve for about three years, and we are planning a trip to Europe soon, so I decided to upgrade to a phone that will work there as well as the US.
I first selected the Droid 2 Global and tried it for two weeks before giving up and returning it for a Blackberry Bold, which I've had for a week now and love.
The Droid's battery lasted for a matter of hours at best, even if it wasn't being used. The Blackberry's lasts days even in heavy use. The Droid was heavy and got very hot in my pocket. I found the Droid touch screen very hard for me to use. I kept accidentally selecting things when trying to scroll, and typing took forever because I often hit the wrong letter the first time.
When I send emails, Blackberry gives me the address I want quickly. For some reason the Droid kept offering me addresses from left field, even if they didn't seem to have the letters I had typed.
I like to keep my phone's email in-box clear, by deleting unimportant stuff fast, but I leave everything on my web site email page as a permanent record because Yahoo offers virtually unlimited storage. The Blackberrys offer you a choice, when deleting, whether to delete on the just the phone or both the phone and the server. On the Droid, it is apparently impossible to delete from the phone without deleting from the web site as well.
Yes, the Droid screen is bigger, but somehow I don't find that helps much in clarity, when reading. The one thing I did find the Droid better at was navigation, but the Blackberry is OK, just not as great.
Overall, I'd heartily recommend the Blackberry Bold - but suggest avoiding the Droid.
