"Fantastic piece of hardware - smooth O/S"4.5 starson by indio7777
Pros: Slim - Sturdy - Feels high-end in your hand - Modern - FAST - FULL HDMI MIRRORING with a $6 purchase of a micro HDMI cord (Awesome!) - Big screen
Cons: Camera is ok..takes great pictures outdoors, and 'ok' indoors - Initially battery life, but that can be improved using the built-in Battery Extender.
Summary: Initially the phone rebooted itself about 4 times when I first got it. Once it did it that specific day, it hasn't done it sense (been about 2 weeks). Also, the battery life was atrocious for the first week but if you review the built-in App that shows phone setup etc there's an app you can open to manage all aspects of the phone's O/S/functionality. I applied the "Battery Extender" option and the phone now provides at minimum 12 hours of useage at a time.Typo - sense = since.
The camera is ok, but it is a definite improvement over the original Droid and the Droid X. Everyone I've shown the phone to has been impressed; a current iPhone user is planning on switching to a "Droid" in March when their contract is up because "the iphone is getting boring".
The phone feels very comfortable in the hand when using it as a phone; and fyi - Voice calls are superior to any phone I've used in the recent past (Droid Incredible 2, HTC Thunderbolt).
Also, not sure if it's the phone's internal processor or Gingerbread (current iteration of Android O/S) but everything on the phone is buttery smooth.
