i'll do this in sections. feel free to correct my spelling and grammar. i know it's fun when i do it to other people. #1. just read a thing about the lackluster droid screen. MOTO gives straight advice on smartphone touchscreen quality (video) -- Engadget i'm no tech whiz, but doesn't this test mean that the droid's screen is MORE accurate? it seems to me that the screen doesn't "average" as much, but the "quality" imho is still better than any other phone i've put my hands on. (more on that later). the "stair-step" is not a stair-step. it's just a wavy line. i hear that the guys at engadet cry like babies whenever some one pees in the iphone-eos, but really? has anyone really complained about this "issue" they say it affects the keyboard. i have absolutely no problems with my droid's virtual keyboard. i don't even go into landscape. i just go caveman , meat-n-taters, portrait one finger. actually, i like to TALK on my phone, so i might be the wrong person to listen to on this one, but i hardly make a mistake, and when i do, the auto-correct saves me. #2. more screen, less "techy". i love comparing stats and all, but when i think of screen 3 things come to mind. first is how good it looks. i think we all know the score here. the droid on the brightest setting is crazy awesome. end of story. second is response. the droid lacks just a bit here, but it might be more of a UI issue. the iphone is much smoother, but it should be considering you can't really change layout. third is the most important to me. durability !!!! does anyone enjoy using a screen protector? what a shame (and sham) that the very first thing most people buy when they get a brand new $500 phone is a clear sticker that makes it less responsive and less pleasing to touch. the droid is the only phone makes this archaic practice futile. i have done the ol' key test, and NOT A SCRATCH !!!!! 1. display - 10 2. response - 7 3. durability -10 screen done.. #3. apps / market okay, can we please have the option of sorting these apps by rating?...at least. what a cluster f***. if i skip a couple of days, i'm totally lost. i don't want to scroll through 10,000 joke, rb clips, and soundboard apps before i get to something worth my time. there are entire girly apps dedicated to 1 girl that no one has heard of, then the same dev makes 20 different ones! uhhhh, consolidate? here are some categories, or at least sub-categories that SHOULD be options: galleries, THEMES, rb clips, soundboards, clocks, .... i mean, how many of these things do we need in the very few categories we actually have? it's a flood of stupid for a non-stupid platform. of coarse we also need a "replacement" category for apps like media player, gallery, browser, etc etc. there should also be a website dedicated to listing EVERY app with all the info you could need with the option of sending a link to your phone. i find it much easier to browse on a pc. about the apps themselves .... i do not mind being a "product tester" for free apps, but i'm tired of the HORRIBLE apps that have absolutely no redeeming value. why do it? if you know it sucks, leave it off the market. if there are 100 of the same app, and they all do it better, leave yours off the market. here's another idea .... if there are 100 of anything ... do something else. we only need 1 clock at a time. i could bitch about apps all day, but i won't. #4. droid vs iphone. ughhh. the iphone performs better. we can all cry about that if we want. it can unlock your car and turn on your christmas tree lights. it scrolls through 100,000 pics really fast, but i can TALK on the droid .... indoors .... in maryville tn. my house is an at&t black hole, and there's an at&t tower about half a mile away. i live on the top of a hill. ?????? the only time i loose a phone call is when the other person is on an iphone. i won't go into all the other stuff that makes the droid leaps and bounds better, because it's old news. however, i think it's LUDICROUS that android and winmo think it's better to dish out 100 new phones a month instead of focusing on 1 or 2 AWESOME phones. i thought the droid would be a flagship for more than a month and a half .... but i was wrong. even though i love the droid, and it is supposed to benchmark as good as the nexus, i would rather have a phone that's half the weight. this thing is a brick ... an awesome one, but you could build a castle with em. that's the thing that apple keeps beating the pants off everyone with. they have 1 phone that they focus on. they make it sparkle. why can't we get that? i think i'm done for now. a small recap .... 1. the screen is awesome. don't let anyone tell you otherwise 2. the app market needs a serious update. IT NEEDS MORE WAYS TO SORT AND ORGANIZE !!!!! 3. screw the iphone. you don't need to out-awesome it. you did not invent it or the droid. you're not your f***** khakis!!! 4. the only thing we really have to bitch about this phone is that google isn't updating the balls out of this thing.
