When every I go into my ATK and kill the apps it will say like 60m which I'm assuming means memory, but on my friends incredible when he clears his apps he has 200m or over. How much memory is on the eris compared to the incredible?
I have had my droid for 21 days now. The first week I was frustrated because I could not use my "backup assistant" which I have used for a long time to transfer my contacts. ( im sure they will come up with an "app" for that soon, and it works very differently than my old LG. Once I worked through the basics of using the phone I started to notice I have very poor reception at my home. (This is really bugging me because my husband has the FREE LG flip phone and has perfect service everywhere in the house) I buy the best and he gets the free phone and he talks anywhere but I have to go out on the back porch or stand by the back door with my head against the window in order to talk to somehone. Part of me really wants to return it for that reason alone, but I love the other features of the phone and don't know if I want to give them up. Has anyone else had issues with poor signal quality>
looking for some educated feedback on this, is the droid really better in terms of power than the eris? i returned the eris because i thought it was too slow and didn't stack up to what the droid is, but was i wrong?
i look at the verizonwireless website and they have the same stats, except for the keyboard of course. but then i hear some htc users say that the eris is just as powerful as the droid and can do everything that the droid can in terms of performance. on the other hand i get people telling me that the droid is the 'powerhouse' and ive read that the droid is the 'high-end' phone. people have told me about better cpu/processor/memory - is this true and is it noticeable? and will it effect the phones longevity compared to the eris for the future? i heard that it will as more updates comes out... someone told me that the eris will never be up to par with the droid hardware wise and that the droid is the safe bet if you want the most from future updates ... also read that the eris will be 'long in the tooth' (old) faster.
A buddy at work got an Incredible and he entered email address and PW and everything was set up for him automatically, full email/contacts/calendar sync, PIN lock/wipe set up.I was looking through some of the screen shots of the Incredible Exchange support, and frankly, Exchange support on the Incredible kicks the Droid's a** in this area.Image Gallery: Verizon HTC DROID Incredible; Functions and Applications | ZDNet Photo Gallery I'm impressed. HTC must have done a ton of work in this area, assuming that the basic exchange functionality in 2.1 on the Incredible is the same that comes w/2.1 on the Droid.If that support could be ported to the Droid (either as an entire ROM, or just the exchange support sliced off) that would be amazing.
I came from the Blackberry Storm 2 and just wanted to point out how much better my signal is with the HTC Eris compared to the S2. I work at Colgate U. and am in a concrete room with a very old concrete or stone building. Usually with the S2 I got 0 to 1 bars of signal. With my HTC Eris I am getting 2 to 3 bars of signal and can carry a conversation without dropping a call. What was you previous phone and how do the signals compare?
I'm upgrading from my Droid 1 to the Droid X tomorrow and would like to start my use of the DX with it's new 32gb card in place of my old 16gb card from my Droid 1 but need to know if there's anything required to copy from my droid 1 16gb card to my new DX 32 gb card that would be required or helpful in the DX use.I will obviously transfer music/vids/pics but are there any essential files, apps, etc. that are needed.Or is it a good idea to use my paid MyBackupPro to copy the old Droid 1 apps/data for use in the DX larger memory card or is this not copatible to perform between the 2 devices?
So this is my second camera test for the Motorola Droid X VS the HTC Droid Incredible. First test I did completely stock, but I used flash vs no flash. This one I am using all stock, not touching flash, I am using still objects. No variants what so ever.
I tried my best... once again Incredible was not agreeing with focusing properly. For small objects I tried many times, it would not budge. For large objects it did great though.
The X was superior because it would focus on small objects with ease and I would only have to snap ONE picture.
The Incredible did better in one area, the computer screen shot. I only had to snap one picture of the screen, where as needed to do 2 - 3 to get a good shot of it on the X.
I noticed the colours on the Incredible are warmer, where as the the X colours were a little cooler. IMO.
So still, my vote is with the X.
The Incredible does have a great camera though.
STOCK X: 6MP WIDESCREEN. NO FLASH. STOCK INC: 8 MP, NO FLASH.
I have the original droid with 2.1 (still haven't got update) the phone has some problems like, restarting, cant update certain apps, unresponsive. i just got the phone in may 2010 an im starting to think its getting out dated. I once had it rooted to 2.2 but went back to stock for OTA 2.2 . But my question is, that do u think i can call verizon and tell them my problems, say its my 3rd droid and im getting tired of it. Since there not making the oringinal droid anymore do u think they'll let me upgrade to Droid X with little or no fee? i got the idea from another post, reading that someone had success with this trick?
So I spent the last hour or more in my backyard in 107 degrees taking pictures of flowers at stock settings with both phones. NOT an easy task I will tell you that. My back hurts, but besides that... I did my best to show the best quality of BOTH cameras, because they are both great. I realize that not everyone will agree with me, or will think I messed with something in my pictures. But these are all completely stock settings, not messed with at all. I only touched the flash on/off button.My decision is I like the X camera better, it is easier to focus, and much snappier. Plus designated camera button! I found on the Incredible while the pictures look great on the phone itself and in gallery, that as soon as they were uploaded the colours looked washed out and not as great. I know this is due to the AMOLED screen. But both overall great. My decision is the X though.
Wow i was as shocked making the video as i am right now. Ran both of them side by side and motorola droid had a faster speed test the the incredible. equal playback of music from sd card and equal boot times. Droid running Bugless Beast v1 overclocked at 1ghz. Keep in mind the incredible not only runs Android 2.1 but Sense on top. Also keep in mind im not a Motorola Droid users defending his phone, i am a new incredible user showing hard facts with video.
Have somewhat limited exposure but what I do have on Android Apps is not positive.The Apple Apps store is far superior to what you get with AppBrain and Market.The Android Apps always give a very vague and sketchy description, next to impossible to get details of what it does.I bought Bettercut and Cashbook - Expense Tracker, both sucked in a big way.Already uninstalled both.The open architecture of Android is a great concept and I love my DroidX.I hope the apps come along soon to make the whole thing complete.
So the milestone and droid run a 550mhz processor, correct me if i am wrong, and that can be overclocked to run faster.
But with the new phones like the Supersonic, and the Scorpian from HTC running at the 1.5ghz does that mean those phones will stomp out the speed compared to the droid. Does that make them better phones?
Since the Nexus One runs a 1ghz as well, does that make it faster than the droid?
Just out of curiousity why is skype on those droid phones but not the Evo? I also noticed swype the kb everyone talks about but Evo users have to practically tweak and hack to get swype to work on their phones.
Well, it's being reported, however not confirmed that the Droid Incredible has finally been rooted.He's also reporting that he's OCed to 1.5GHz.What's more he's working on 2GHz.Good Lord, could you imagine?I've been saying that as of right now, based on personal preference, that a rooted Droid is the best option.But this will def start to sway opinions, including mine.
I dont know if this should be in the Accessories or not but here we go.Like some people I orginally had the Droid 1 and Verizon upgraded me to the Droid 2 for a warranty replacement. The multimedia station works great but as everyone knows the car mount does not work. Does anyone know if there is a way to modify the Droid 1 car mount to work with the Droid 2 or if there is a way to buy just the new "face plate" on the car mount for the Droid 2 since they do look similar and it appears that they are the same car mount with just a different "face plate" that attaches to the phone.
I currently have a rooted Droid 1 and it runs just fine at 1.2 ghz with Bugless Beast.However, I am starting to get anxious for a new phone and my upgrade will be ready in early December.I have been doing a little research and have not found anything that seems to be miles ahead of the droid x in the near future. I want the best phone on the market and as of right now I feel that is the droid x (sorry iphone). Would you guys say it is worth it to use my upgrade now and get the X or does anyone have an estimate as to when the next big thing will be coming? (I prefer a droid phone however the rumors of samsung's 2 ghz phone seem promising).
I have a Droid X and today is my last day of the 30 day guarantee and I was thanking about switching to the Droid 2. I take a lot of photos of cars and videos of racing and things like that, so how does the camera in the Droid 2 compare to the Droid X. Can some post pics. Thanks. Oh and I don't use hdmi out or at least I haven't yet.

I just did a little test and sat them side by side. the moto showed -83 and the inc showed -79. both fluctuated but the inc was consistently 2-4 lower than the droid. if you still have your moto,give it a try...
I dont know what "underclocked" means, but nonetheless the Droid's processing is a bit higher than the Hero's. And also,I know that the Arm Cortex A8 is a better processor than the Qualcomm's in the first place anyways.So, looking at those specs, is the Droid's processing power really that much more superior than the Hero's? Basically, I'm trying to get an idea of how much of the Droid's better performance is due to its processing power as opposed to its higher (and more efficiently coded, im assuming) Eclair OS.
