How could Verizon hype a Motorola smart phone over an HTC? As reliable as HTC has been and Motorola (need I say more)? So I was wondering about the Google Voice application on the Droid and I started thinking: Hey! Isn't there another Android phone on Verizon? I mean I never hear anyone hyping this phone. NEVER! I read the reviews and one reviewer even says that Verizon is intentionally under-powering this phone in hopes of pushing the Droid as its flagship device. BAD MOVE! Some of us (me for sure) will never get the bad taste that the Silver Q left out. I mean NEVER! Anyway... How is the Google Voice app on this phone?
Has anyone else using this phone experienced less than stellar battery performance? Today I turned my phone on at 0800 and by 1530 it was in the yellow (very low). Sent one text, made maybe five calls, received three emails. I have my email setting to check download emails at five minute intervals (coming from a BB Storm1 w/5.0). Also a little disappointed to find out that the voice dial function did not support dialing initiated from a bluetooth headset. Any thoughts/suggestions on the battery life?
I live in AZ where there is no daylight savings time. On my home screen the clock thats displayed (with the current weather as well) is 1 hour eailer than the actual time. The time in the upper right hand corner is correct though. In addition the weather is not updating on its own. I can wake up in the morning and its sunny out and the screen is still showing the moon and a lower temperature than it actually is. I do have my location on, the clock set to automatic, and the wheather set to auto update. Any suggestions on what could be wrong, or what i could have set-up incorrectly? I dont know if this matters or not to my question but on google maps my GPS is off by like 3 miles.
I was wondering if anyone else is having an issue with the camera. If I am not completely still the picture is blurry. Does it not have image stabilization? I upgraded from the storm and it took fantastic pictures (very slowly). I have looked through the settings to see if maybe it wasn't turned on but couldn't find it. Any suggestions or tips? Thanks
SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME SO I DONT HAVE TO RETURN MY ERIS
Ok. So far, Im in love with my Droid Eris... but Im having an issue with the facebook app... has anyone used it? ITS ALMOST ENOUGH TO MAKE ME RETURN IT... im so depressed... The icon only brings up the newsfeed... no menu options... no way to look at your notifications or friends... no option for composing a message... I cant find a different app... is anyone else having this issue, or know a way around it?! PLease
I'm totally sold on this phone, but I'm not sold on the fact that Verizon sees fit to charge around $30 more than Sprint for almost the exact same bundle. Right now, I pay $69/mo for 450 minutes with unlimited text & data. Oh and nights and weekends start at 7pm. Verizon is $99/mo for the same bundle, but since their "nights" start at 9pm (and weekends don't start till midnight Sat morning!), I'd probably have to pay even more to get the 900 minutes!
Screw that! I'd rather pay full price for the Eris and use it on my Sprint plan. As far as I can tell, the Eris supports the same networks as the HTC Moment, so this should work, right? Is the phone locked, or can you easily port android phones across carriers? Would be nice...
I have had the eris for about 2 days and it is by far the best phone I have used to date. I work for the company and have carried all kinds of smartphones and this phone by far is the best of them all, slick, fast, loud, customizable, all kindsa stuff! enjoy it folks
