I am not what you call an “early adopter.”
But yesterday, I was the first in the door of my local Verizon store to purchase the DROID-my very first 3G-Internet capable, multifunctioning cell phone! Here’s what I like and don’t like about my new DROID.
Here’s what I LOVE about it.
- SUPER FAST CONNECTION and BROWSING
- Awesome screen resolution
- It makes perfect little videos
- Takes better photos than my digital camera
- Sound is great
- Screen sensitivity is perfect
- I like the big font!
- Fun little Android guy
- Great to sync my gmail, contacts, docs and calendar
- With all the little apps I can do everything I need
- GOOGLE MAPS
- Easy to post to Twitter via an app called “Swift”
- Easy to post to Facebook
- Free Apps
- GPS app
Here’s what I don’t love about it
- It feels kind of clunky in my hand, not smooth and sleek.
- The keys on the real keyboard are too small for my fingers.
- Same with the keys on the screen
- Battery life sucks!! I charged it up all night and used it today and it only took a couple hours to get to 50% battery. (I’ve heard there’s an app for that.)
- No instruction manual in the box, just a shot little “Getting Started Guide”
- The girl at the store sold me the wrong accessories and she didn’t seem to know much about the phone.
- I haven’t figured out how to transfer the video and photos that I took to my computer other than by email.
- Verizon hasn’t paid any attention to my tweets or retweets. They are not attempting to connect with their audience.
I don’t know how this compares to an I-Phone, but for me whose last phone was the Envy, this phone totally rocks.
What do you think?
