Part of the lower casing appears to be bulging near a seam on the edge.I can live with it I think, as long as it doesn't get worse.My concern with the exchange is that the one I have WORKS just fine, no random restarts, normally minimal lag though the touch keyboard seems a little sluggish at times even as I type this message.
Well I finally got my Droid today. I love it except for the black speck under the glass. At first I thought it was going to be a couple dead pixels, but I think it is just something under the glass.
Anybody know what the best way to get it exchanged? I ordered it from verizonwireless.com. I would really like to be able to swap it out at the store, but am afraid I will have to send it off and wait on shipping again.
this is just one more reason that the eris is better (IMO) than the moto droid. and it makes sense that the nexus 1 screen is tied with the eris since they are both HTC *sigh* and of course the iphone beats all what a surprise ... heres the link: Smartphone touch-screen analysis tests finger fidelity | CES 2010 - CNET
Currently I have an Eris with v3 Leak meaning I can't root. But my wife loves my phone so I plan on giving her mine and either getting another eris and rooting or a Moto Droid and rooting. I've been trying to read up on the Droid and the different ROMS available and have some questions.First I want to make a few things clear:
1. This IS NOT a phone comparison.
2. The Incredilble IS NOT an option since it can't be rooted and I don't want to spend $200 on it.
3. I'm looking for WELL INFORMED OPINIONS, if you don't have one keep moving there is nothing to see here.
To be fair I've obviously done a lot more reading on the Eris which is why I'm looking for well informed opinions from Droid owners that way I can make a well informed decision.
Every time I type in a number and then go to 'Add To Contacts' my phone NEVER saves the number. if that person calls me the correct info will show up but for me to call them is impossible... because they are not on my list. I have searched everywhere for a fix for this. All the correct display option are checked (for gmail i have EVERYTHING checked now)
This drives me absolutely insane. Ive added the same contact several times... and when i hit 'done' they don't show up. PLEASE HELP
Can I use my original Moto Droid charger for the X?I have one that I used strictly for work and would love to not buy another.Also, my battery is almost dead.Do I have to let it die completely then charge or am I ok to just charge it now?
I have a Moto Droid and was just playing around with my friends Droid Eris. I really like the HTC widgets (calender, email, txt and such). Has anyone gotten those onto the Moto Droid or found any like them?
I took a video on my Moto Droid, and sent it to my friend on his Eris. He downloaded the file from Gmail and but when goes to play the file, it states that the video is not supported. We have tried converting it to a .mp4 and it will not play either, even with a couple of App's from the Marketplace same result. Yet I thought the droid/Eris both supported .3GP? Works fine on his PC with Quicktime, and the video plays fine on my Droid. Is it because I took it in Hi-Res mode, and the Eris does not support that screen resolution? Or did we screw something up?
I have a moto droid now and I am unhappy with it. It is way to bulky and I never use the pop out keyboard. I am thinking of getting an eris. Should I make the change to an eris? Does anyone think the eris will get 2.2? Should I just save up to get the incrediable?
Seeing as Motorola is locking down the Motorola Droid X and likely the Droid 2, what should I replace my Moto Droid with? I've been totally happy with the phone to the extent that I tell people it's the coolest thing I've ever owned in my entire life... that's 51 years for you youngsters. I'm of course on Verizon and will stay with Verizon. I've paid zero attention to any phones other than the Moto Droids. Alas, lockdown is not acceptable. So now I have to go through the whole learning process all over again.
I've purchased a droid and realized it doesnt have a preinstalled instant message app (aim yahoo etc) like the hero or g1 does...my friend sent me an .apk file from his hero, i tried to install using astro but it doesnt work. is there a way to download an instant messenger that is NOT meebo,ebuddy etc..nothing is in market.
So I've seen the new facebook app and I think I would rather use that than the moto integration. My problem is that I like having FB populate my contacts and being able to see statuses when people call me. Is there a way to get those two features and not duplicate efforts on the X? I don't want to add too many more things to sync for the sake of battery. If not do you guys just have the X sync with FB and also have the app for when you want to delve further into it?
I've been testing the Moto Droid and the Droid Eris and there are some pretty big shortcomings on both IMO. The Exchange support on the Eris is working much better for me than the built in 2.0 App on the Moto Droid. Does anyone know what App HTC is using for this and if there is any way to get it on the Moto Droid? I also like the mail widget that HTC has supplied. If it wasn't for the pitiful battery life one the Eris I would just stick with it.
Something about comunucating with my laptop via my droid wirelessly like controlling one device with the other? is this true? i figure my phone is linux as well as my laptop so remote desktop sharing might be possible.....
I updated this morning, but after the update it stuck at the 'Motorola' symbol after the reboot. I had to reboot the phone 5 times to get it work and it was fine; however, i just installed flash and have rebooted 5 times and the phone screen is still stuck at the Motorola symbol upon restart. I can hear emails coming in and i can turn the screen on and off but no go. Looks like I am going to Verizon.
I just picked up my first X tonight. I got home and an update notification popped up to update my phone. I said yes. Now i can get the phone to get off a black screen w/ a while moto symbol. I have done a battery pull too. no luck.
Yes i recently had to flash my phone back to 2.1 which i did in a flash then i waited till it did a normal update to which i though would be FRG1B but to my surprise it was FRG22. Now i installed Easy Root and tried rooting it said it worked but it didn't so then i tried Universalandriodroot and it didn't work either.Now i tried to flash back to 2.1 and then just root from there but this is were my problem happens. When i try to Flash i do the normal plug up usb and restart phone and while waiting on it to boot hold up on the D Pad and Nothing happens i did this 15 times it will not go into the menu at all.
Any idea if this could cause battery issues? I usually drive my car every day but I've never had anything like this stupid charger with a light that is PERMANENTLY on. My cigarette lighter port is powered 100% of the time, even when the car is turned off, locked, etc.
This also seems like a theft issue to me... it's just a stupid charger but that won't stop them from thinking "OMG SHINY BLUE LIGHT, MUST BE FANCY STUFF INSIDE!!!"
