So, I for various reason Verizon will not give me a replacement other than the Eris after have a few Eris act up on me for similar reasons. But, they are offering me an early upgrade, with the possibility of the fee waved. So, now I am looking at a few phones, but want to know a few things before I make the jump. I am right now deciding between the Droid 2, and HTC Merge. I ruled out the Fascinate, because I am not fond of Touchwiz, or the lack of an LED notification light, and the Continuum seems a bit novelty-ish with the notification screen. As for the DI, it is a great phone, but that EOL, and I want to try something different that what my sister has. I also like the Droid Pro and don't mind the form factor as I use to be a Treo 700w user, but I kind of like the idea of a larger screen. So, out of the two I am looking at, which would fit my usage better(I know the Merge isn't out yet so the G2/desire Z would be used as the fill in for the comparo as they are essential the same device). I just want the one with the better call, audio(music playback and the like), and image quality as the rest of the features are a bit moot and/or could be solved with a root. Which do you think is going to have a longer software update life(without factoring in the ability to root)? Which has the better cpu/gpu combo based on what is has been seen on the G2(since both have the 2nd gen Snapdragon chip)? Thank you.
