    Stronger radio/bigger antenna.

    More robust SIP client.

    ...for me anyway.

    Zippo lighter app. Every iPhone in the country has it.

    Personally, I just want more general snappiness all around. Like how the home screens always lag. I don't want to install a home replacement or have to root to get that. Yes, I'm rooted and have BBeast, but a quick home screen should be a stock feature.

    A Sirius app.

    I transplanted from Blackberry just before their Sirius App came out... which I had been waiting to come out for a while. Now the wait continues.

    Better app Devs. Seriously, the iPhone's apps are unmatched and you can't even say otherwise. Like today, I just bought a game on my iPod Touch called Angry Birds, and like always, the interface is top-noctch, everything is colorful and vibrant, smooth, purdy, and the game itself is amazing! Yeah they stole the concept, but it's done so much better. I just wish we could have games like this. I see the games people get excited over on Android and they look like **** and play not much better.

    A better camera, the camcorder works wonderfully, but the camera is terrible.

    Optimization, I feel that our Graphics chip is going to waste, cause everything is not snappy, not even as snappy on a damn Droid Eris.

    FM radio would be nice. I can stream, but when I'm at the gym doing redundant cardio, it would be nice to be able to sync up with the TV's so I can hear what's on.

    As far as software, a good music app with equalizer would be nice. Something along the lines of Nitrogen player for WinMo. And while google sync is ok, My Phone from Microsoft is just plain more robust with features and UI.

    Last complaint is battery capacity. The Seidio 2600 is an option, but it's a big, UGLY option. Thankfully, 1.2 ghz doesn't hit the battery too much harder than stock 550 mhz does. Stock should have been at least 16-1700 miliamp. It's like having a 5 gallon gas tank in a Porsche 911.

    The iPhone comments, really need to stop. If you want an iPhone, go get one. This is Android 2.0, and has been out for how long? And how long has the iPhone been out. Give it a Rest already, give it time.:mad:

    Droid doesn't do TV-out. It's a shame because I think the video recording on the droid is pretty awesome. I wish I could connect it to my LCD TV.

    I'm sorry but it doesn't take "time" to make apps look presentable, that's all on the amount of effort the devs are willing to put into these apps. So get off the bandwagon and realize that we have so much more potential and yet it isn't utilized because the process of putting your app on the market is a joke (which can be a blessing and a curse at the same time

    i have no major qualms, the phone is a phone and its doing great at that, more than the iphone can ask for!

    more apps are coming daily, i love it!

    we are getting 2.1, the camera really can't be fixed much so yeah, i guess a camera that takes in dim light would be good. but not super important

    picup is a great flickr/facebook/twitpic etc app, it does them all and it uploads nicely!

    We need a "Patience App" that gets installed on every Droid OTA. That way, these threads would all disappear. Other than the camara issue (sorry folks, but mine takes good pics), there isn't an issue on this list that time won't fix.

    And like it's been stated, the iPhone has been out for how long? I'm sure their forums had these threads a few years back. Or did they? iPhone owners seems to be more grateful than Droid owners, from my experience.

    I have no complaints with my camera either. But having said that I think it works better with Camera Zoom FX.

    I would really like to see a direct voice command dial by tapping your ear peice and telling it to dial...
