Review: Motorola Droid 2
Missed: Cases cause a problem with typing....
The Droid 2 uses a two-part case since it's a slider. Since it has no hole in the body to put a wrist strap through, most would want to use a case to protect the phone. Well, when you snap the top portion of the case on, it then semi-blocks the top row of keys on the physical keyboard, making it MUCH harder to type on that top row. Motorola should have designed this phone so that when you slide it open, it opens maybe 1/8 of an inch more to give more space above that top keyboard row. Any case will now interfere with typing. "Duh".
My unit is experiencing the wild up and down bar situation. Sitting on a desk, it goes from 0 to 3 bars in my home, and the 3G connects, disconnects, etc. Call quality is "ok" - I've heard worse, but some of my calls do get some static. My old LG Dare was better. I'm not a heavy phone user, so my battery lasts the whole day, but I've noticed when I use the task killer app, it shows tons of stuff running in the background that I haven't even activated, and when I close them, they're all back on later as if they're coming on randomly (?).
I'm taking this phone back to Verizon and swapping for a different unit. Hate to say it, but Motorola pulled a dud out of their rear on this one.
