Why I returned the Droid 2.

The Droid 2 is an awesome device but as many have stated, some of the additions are downgrades from the original Droid. Coming from a fully modded/overclocked Droid 1, it is difficult to be impressed with 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.

-The cheap loose plastic around the volume rocker drove me nuts.

Verizon refused to send out a brand new replacement, so I simply gave up on the phone.

Froyo (2.2) fried many Droid 1's, and appears to have memory management issues on the Droid 2. Hopefully a future software update fixes these flaws, but until then, I'll be waiting for something better to come along.
