Default Deciding between HTC Droid Eris vs. Motorola DROID. Help me decide!

So, I went to the VZW store today played with both of the phones.

I like both of them. I'm leaning more towards the HTC Eris as far as UI is concerned but its hard to ignore Motorola's Droid when looking at the screen and the fact that it has a sweet camera.

I need suggestions and advice. Which on should I get???

The camera HW has been touted to be pretty nice, but I certainly wouldn't use 'camera' as a buying point for the Droid at this point in time. Couldn't get it to focus on a barcode to get that 'shopsavvy' app to work. The flash is ineffective for the most part. Indoor pictures are grainy and blurred from slow shutter speeds.

Hopefully the SW will catch up, but I didn't buy it for the camera.

Welcome to the AF forums and enjoy your visits !!

Suggest that you try posting for opinions in both of the droid forums and see what you get as feedback
