    While it is difficult to rate a phone two years after release, I have done my best to rate the phone in comparison to other devices that were available at the time. I have used the Droid for the last two years, and while it is now behind the times, it is a great device that served me well!

    The Droid has been my main phone since its release date, and is only being retired now for the Galaxy Nexus. The Droid's insane capability to run almost anything (albeit it varying speeds) is its strongest card. Mine is currently running almost stock Gingerbread from Peter Alfonso, and hums along at a good clip. At this point, I can't stand the camera, lag in opening apps, and battery life. But one should be expected to be tired of these types of gripes by now. The Droid's been secure, kept up to date, has great performance for a phone of its age, and can run nearly anything in the Market. Droid did.

    Having used this phone for almost every day of my life for just over two years, I have to say, I never expected so much from a phone. I ran over clocked and under voltage kernels for most of the time. It defiantly felt slow towards the end when dual core phones and more system heavy OS's came along but the biggest thing that killed this phone was lack of RAM. The camera was slow and quality could really be lacking. The screen is to this day one of the best I have ever seen. The 480 x 854 IPS panel was a joy to look at day in and day out. Motorola also makes fantastic radios and I never had a problem with dropped calls or finding the GPS.
