"Solid phone with a couple problems"3.5 starson by spocheld
Pros: Comes with Android 2.2, keyboard is very nice and easy to use, much more stylish than the original Droid
Cons: Very short battery life, camera is horrible compared to my wife's HTC Incredible, and the colors are a bit dull and bland, and also a bit glitchy at times
Summary: This is undoubtedly an awesome phone with some great features, but I find myself just not that satisfied because my wife got an HTC Incredible the same time I got my Droid 2 and it just seems much more refined. When you slide the the arrow to unlock the screen it's very choppy and not smooth, and the screen it no where close to being as vivid as the Incredible. I sent a pic we took with the Incredible to my Droid 2 and compared and it's night and day how much more vivid the colors are on the Incredible. The Droid 2 has a great feel to it, very well build and the keyboard is very easy to type on, I find myself using it a couple times a day for texting. My biggest problem is the ridiculously short battery life, my last phone was an EV3 and I would only charge it once or twice a week and I'm charging my Droid 2 at least twice a day, mostly because I'm using it a lot and the screen undoubtedly drains the battery. But I still find myself torn between keeping it or exchanging it for an Incredible or a Droid X. I still have about another 3 weeks to decide whether to keep it or exchange it, but I think I'll probably end up swapping it out since I don't want to keep kicking myself for the next 2 years.I forgot to mention the wifi problem that I'm having, at home I have wifi and have connected it to my internet, but when I leave and come back it doesn't reconnect even though the password is remembered and the only way I can get it to work is to disable and then re-enable wifi and then it will connect.
