    Keep in mind that the Droid is light years ahead of any other of it's competition at the time of release. Just wait. Until a few more updates.

    Even with the updates it won't fix the keyboard issue I so disliked on this phone.

    That's why they call it person opinion. So minority or not I did not like it.

    Like the review and for me the weight of the droid
    is perfect. As far as typing goes it does take getting used to. I have however installed Better Keyboard and has made a big difference. I have not used the Eris sou cannot compare. The Droid os as stated is far superior to any os out IMO. But I am still a bb guy so this is just another toy.

    I too hate the slide out keyboard, but it is great for edit cut and paste functions and also it will be nice to have in the cold to curser my way around with gloves. BBC crackman with a droid-- I don't feel so bad now.

    Man - the thread I've been looking for. Thanks to P3, Olta, and JLevy for some keen insights. Here's a question for the 3 of you:

    How does the Eris do with video playback compared to the S2? (We all know the Droid will be top dog in this area).

    I'm torn between the Eris and the S2. I'll be using the phone to watch movies and TV episodes while I'm on the road so this feature would be key.

    Thoughts?

    Welcome to

    IMO the Eris wins hands down. The videos I have watched on the Eris have been clear and crisp while those on the S2 are just ok. But without a doubt the huge and vibrant screen of the Droid takes the prize here followed by the Eris and S2. Once again these are all personal opinions so the only way to really determine which one is for you is to go into a store and play with them side by side.

    Wirelessly posted (9530 Storm)

    P3, I wish I had your battery life. Back when we were talking about signal strength I was going by bars. As it was pointed out, m now looking at db and am often near -86 to -90 which I believe is not good. The few times I remember looking at the Status Option on my S1 it was about the same. I have the brightness set to Auto and don't feel I've used the phone much today compared to the last few days. Day before yesterday I ran it down to 5% and based on JL's suggestion with my previous Storm (don't remember if it was 1 or 2) I ran it completely dead last night. Battery life is bad! I have my screen timeout set to 15 seconds, BT only on when needed (15 minutes today). Kind of bummed.

    Text selection is a PIA & cannot even be done in Gmail. Typing in portrait mode sux compared to the S2 and might be where I'm killing my battery with a lack of speed. (along with a week signal).

    I'm torn. There's a lot to like but these things are pushing me back towards the S2. I guess I could try Better Keyboard but weird hitting glass and not having feedback (not into the vibration option either).

    Thoughts anyone?

    -X
