Default Considering the Droid Pro for my wife

My wife and I have been using our Incredibles since they released last may. While I have absolutely lovedminet, she has never been crazy about hers. She used a BB Pearl before the Inc and was pretty content with it. Now that she's able to upgrade, she's considering the Pro.

How do you guys feel about your Pro after having used it for a few months now? Does it still feel like a phone with longevity? Are there any glaring issues that you have with it? Any advice or insight that yall can give would be greatly appreciated.

It's the first phone since I entered the smartphone age that I haven't wanted to switch out for something new after only a few months. I love pretty much everything about it, especially after the latest software update that improved things in a big way. Battery life and exchange support were two of the biggest issues that plagued the phone since it's release, but the latest update seems to have gone a long way in fixing most of those problems.

There are definitely some improvements all around that can be made, but for my needs, this has been as close to a perfect phone that I've ever come across.

I have had my Droid Pro since November and have been quite satisfied. While I have never had a BB, I tend to use mine like a BB, in that my calendar, contacts, email and texting are vital. I synch with exchange and chose a third party app (Touchdown) as I felt it offered more features that were important to me than the Android Corporate sync account that comes with the phone.

Another reason I chose the Pro was for the real keyboard. While I am still glad for the keyboard, I'm finding myself using the voice recognition for texting and email more and more. Thus, real keyboard is becoming less important to me.

My personal experience would say that it is a "phone with longevity", but that's just my opinion. That, along with $6, will get you a coffee at Starbucks!

Thanks for the input guys, I really do appreciate it. I've never owned a phone with a keyboard, but the Pro has been intriguing to me since it launched a few months ago. I may consider getting one for myself as well.

Thanks again.

As far as getting a DROID Pro phone for your wife I would just offer one thing. After having my DROID Pro for a couple weeks I would definitely get her one if you really hate her and hope that she would jump off the nearest high building after having to use this piece of junk. Battery is a joke even when all of the apps are off. After having a BB Curve that held a charge for 2-3 days my Droid Pro lasts about 4 hours so I can't go anywhere w/o a bunch of charges. Good job MOTO you cheaped out on this one.

If you only get 4 hours out of your phone something is wrong.

My wife loves hers. You should do it. As for battery life my wife is on her *&^%%^$ phone 24/7 and she still gets 10 to 12 hours out of it.

To be honest, battery time is not really a concern because trust me, it can't get any worse than the HTC Incredible. Thanks for the input everyone!
