    who here has a Droid phone?

    what is your opinion of it?

    Since Android OS is a Linux-based OS, it seems like a great alternative to the iPhone.

    I'm considering getting one....

    You're speaking specifically of the Droid? If so, which one? Droid? Droid Eris? Droid Incredible?

    Or do you mean just an Android phone in general?

    Um....not being familiar with the Eris or Incredible, I was speaking of the Motorola Droid.

    I think he means any phone with Android OS on it.

    Motorola Droid owner here.

    You can't go wrong with it, but there is certainly room for improvement starting with the 5 MP camera...it just doesn't do well in low-lighting conditions and you need to experiment with the settings in order to get some kind of improvement.

    Using the GPS will eat your battery alive.

    Other than those two issues the screen...the SCREEN! You'll love it (but again, it too will suck your battery dry).

    Fortunately, the battery is removable.

    T-Mobile Pulse recently updated to Android 2.1, it's based on the 2.6.29 Kernel according to the phone.

    On the whole it works well, but as mentioned before me battery life can be severely limited by what you're using.

    I have the Evo, but not a droid - not sure if you're done being confused yet though.

    Nexus One owner on AT&T. Great phone. Beautiful screen as long as you're not in direct sunlight, then its horrible. Thats just the downside of an AMOLED screen. Running OS 2.2.
