Testing use results

by anrinn    May 25, 2011, 12:40 AM

I got the droid on May 15, and I have been testing it out. The screen and the LTE speeds are definitely it's strengths.

The 4G LTE coverage in the greater Seattle area has been solid. The only spot I have lost a data signal was in a tunnel that also caused my other phone to lose connection. Even here, the coverage was quickly restored to 1G and then seemlessly switched to LTE. I have had no problems with phone reception, as another user mentioned. I took it on a train trip through an area with no 4G coverage, and it did fine with the 1G and 3G networks.

The only two immediate issues that I have found with the phone are the battery life and quality of the phone voice. The speakerphone, which I use often, is distorted. Also people have trouble hearing me with the bluetooth that I have in my car. But they could understand me with this same bluetooth setup using my blackberry.

My bottom line is that if you want a real fast internet phone and you live in a 4G coverage area, then by all means go for it. However, if you want strong phone qualities (battery life and voice quality) or you don't an LTE area, then there are probably better choices.
