The Droid is Too Yummy For Words
Ok, honestly it pissed me off a few times, but all in all it was like candy in my palm and I don’t want to give it back!
Just like any new gadget there was a learning curve, but seriously it wasn’t hard to figure out the Droid after a brief walk through before I headed home with Droid in hand.
Since I’ve had the Droid, I have been using it to check my email and Facebook, tweet on Twitter and whrrl on Whrrl.com. I’ve taken pictures, which are turning out to be very clear compared to the pictures my Palm takes and I’ve tried out the video camera. My mouth and voice weren’t in sync under the low resolution video which was recommended if I wanted to send it to YouTube. My Vado does a much better job of taking videos and I it doesn’t bother me because the phone serves more important purposes.
I tried out a few of the free apps from the marketplace and some have turned out to be quite entertaining. I love the Coin Flip, Twidroid, PicSay and Bubble. I tried to stay away from too many apps and stick with reviewing the phone’s performance.
I have not had any issues with the phone at all. It works like a charm. No dropped calls, the service is through Verizon, battery life has been great probably because I have been on top of using the free app, Advanced Task Killer, keeping it clean from running unused apps and it turns off and on like a breeze. I had to get use to the touch screen because I was use to using the stylus or my fingernail with my Palm and the Droid requires the finger or you can use the keyboard that slides down from behind the phone. After a few days, I was use to the touch screen and was tweeting away while on the go.
All in all, I really like the Droid and I’m sure some lucky guy or gal would love the Droid all wrapped up for Valentine’s Day!
