Well, I went in to test and buy a Droid Saturday and there were two on display, neither has been updated with the new firmware. The first I picked up was great. I disliked the physical keyboard as everyone said I would, but I see that a lot of you like it after getting used to it. I later went to try the Eris, which was so-so. I went back to the first Droid, which was in someone elses hands, so I went to the other on display. It sucked. Lag, lag, lag. 15 seconds between camera resets. Rebooted once on it's own while in my hands for the 6 minutes I toyed with it. I came back to this forum and see threads like "top complaints", "returning the Droid", and "post update issues".... and really unnerving threads on other forums like Issue 5286 - android - Browser lags when scrolling after 2.0.1 Update on Motorola DROID - Project Hosting on Google Code My wife says I'm focusing too much on the potential problems, so that's all I'm going to continue to see. Since I really LOVE the potential of what this phone has to offer, she says I should focus on the good aspects of this phone. So I like the thread of "how has this phone saved your @ss"... And I'm not whining -- it's like researching a new car before buying. If I constantly see owners posting that the gas mileage isn't what the manufacturer said it would be, or if a tire keeps falling off, or if the AC only works occasionally, or if the car dies out every time you turn the radio on... well, you get the point. My newbie understanding is -- Yep, these are not "just phones", but great pieces of technology and consumers should expect them to do as advertised and you should EXPECT to get what you pay for... no settling, compromising, or tolerating. That concept of accepting glitches "since the technology is fresh and new" was developed by the manufacturers just so their product can be rushed to market and the profits can start rolling in... Why should we be brainwashed to believe and except that there will be glitches and that these glitches will be dealt with (and possibly resolved) over time? Sorry for the rant - I was actually trying to start a happy thread. I need to just buy one and get it over with, right? But now I gotta know.... really... for the sake of the phone and everyone reading this thread: How many of you have Droids that are working perfectly (or close to "perfectly") ?
