Is the Motorola Droid a good phone?
I'm looking to get an Android (Motorola) phone to use until I upgrade to the Bionic in April.
Is the Motorola Droid a good representation of Android? Or would I be disappointed?
I'd get a Droid X but they are going to $200+. I'm finding a lot of VZW Motorola Droids on eBay for $70-$150. That's more in my price range.
Thanks for any advice!

Where are you looking? I have an Original Droid rooted (lithium mod) the screen is cracked from the top right corner to the speaker hole 1/4 screen is dead. evil Bay has DX averaging $335+. Verizon wants $298 for a refurbished Orig Droid. New every 2 is dead and my contract isn't up untill October. I understand your pain..
DEATH before iPhone!

Droid is a great phone, stock android, solid hardware and its completely hackable. Its a great device after you root and install cyanogen.
This would be a great phone for you to get acquainted with android and hopefully you decide to root it too, it opens up a whole new world and breathes new life into your device.

Mine will be here tomorrow so I hope it's good enough till the bionic comes out lol. I ended up paying 150 on ebay but it was from an ebay store that sells many phones. Thought maybe the phone would be in better shape that way! I will throw my thoughts ur way after getting switched over tomorrow night! I can't wait to get rid of the BB!!!

How much are Droid incredibles?
That would beat a og Droid actually. Haha, newer, faster, 1 ghz chip and a slcd.Some say the glass is half empty. Some say its half full. I say, "Are you going to drink that?"

I loved the surpress then I got my DX and now "Surepress what..."
It's kinda sad on RIMS part then a OG Droid from 2 years ago can run flash and all sorts of other stuff, yet the latest and greatest BB cannot do half of what OG Droid can do. My brother has the OG droid and once he gets a new phone, I'll take that droid to mess with if he doesn't want to sell it.-Droid RAZR MAXX (Artic 2.2)
