Motorola Droid 2
Phone Scoop Review
Aug 16, 2010 by Philip Berne
The Motorola Droid 2 succeeds the hot-selling Droid with an improved keyboard and a smoother design. Is this still the phone that should carry Verizon's Android flag? read review ›
Disappointed in Motorala & Verizon
Acquired one the first day. At home, signal (cell & data0 was fluctuating, battery life 5 hours at most. Droid 2 extremely heavy to carry in pocket. Reviewed (no bad language) on VZ website, it hasn't been posted. I believe that VZ only posts or writes positive reviews for their own devices. Some of the reviews are dated before the device was released, how does that happen. Now I don't trust reviews on the VZ website for any phones that I'm considering.
Returning and paying the $35 (stupidity fee for being a first adopter) restocking fee.
Will wait for reviews that are posted on on other websites.
This phone did not impress me like I thought it would. The first major problem I had was a lack of signal - almost none at all in certain places where my other Verizon phone had almost a full signal. Even after exchanging it for a new one, signal was still poor. One of the things that attracted me to this phone was the option to use a touchscreen or keyboard to enter text. However, while the keyboard was pretty easy to use, the touchscreen was not. The buttons were so small that it was very easy to mistype something. One other frustrating thing, the phone vibrates when you touch certain keys. There is an setting to turn this off, but even when turned off, the phone still vibrates. I mentioned this to the employee at the store when I was exchanging my phone and he didn't believe me until he tried it himself. I took it back today and exchanged it for the Droid X and I love it so far!
