Why I returned the Droid 2.
The Droid 2 felt like a first run software device that managed to suffer in the following areas:
-Battery life is pathetic and manages to be worse than the Droid 1.
-After 2-3 weeks with the phone, nearly every app lags.
-Flash support is cool, but causes the browser to crash/freeze daily.

Moto claims it listed to its customers to design this phone, but I highly doubt that. Rather than sticking with the stock android UI, they desided to overlay Blur on it. As many people know, Blur sucks, but I am sure moto spent too much money on it to admit that it sucks, so they instead force it on their customers to ruin phones... basic corporate stupidity.
So I went in to getting this phone ...
