    I was introduced to the world of Android with the Moto Droid early this year. Overall, I liked it. It could be a bit buggy (headset and camera issues, using the phone just to make calls could be annoying since my face constantly "dropped" them) but I would still give it 4/5.

    Now, my phone is gone (water damage). Fortunately, I don't have to pay full retail price for a new phone even though I'm still young into my contract, though it won't be Moto Droid. I've got the option of getting an Ally (downgrade) for about $100 or the Incredible for almost $300. I really don't want to shell out the ample cash for the Incredible. It's simply not in my budget. At the same time, the Ally is a downgrade and may not be getting Froyo anytime soon, making it pretty obsolete for this fairly tech savvy chick.

    Would love some feedback. Shell out the extra cash (which is really out of my price range) or stick with the much cheaper Ally? Thoughts?

    youre going to get a whole lot of the same response on this one....... and you already know the answer......... the Ally would be a downgrade

    the incredible would be the way to go...... but if its out of your price range then theres little choice

    btw you could probably pickup another droid on Ebay or Craigslist etc for somewhere in the middle $$ wise

    just another reason the insurance is a total waste of money

    thanks. I'll give it a shot, and if after downloading all my original apps the speed compared to the Incredible is unbearable I may bite the bullet. the DInc is just beautiful though, so I may end up switching up after all.

    Did you have camera issues after going 2.2? My dad had camera issues with his Droid after switching to 2.2.

    Nope, had camera issues after 2.1 update. And by issues, I mean it didn't work at all. Black screen that would eventually display a dialog box to force close.

    Phone got damaged right when 2.2 is expected to come soon :-(
