Just out of curiosity with seeing a lot of people either switch from the droid to the N1 or are planning on it once it is released for other carriers, i just wanted to see what people thought and what they are planning on doing.


Personally i don't really care too much about the N1 and do not plan on getting it. I do think that it is an extremely nice/fast device but I want to wait this out till the end of 2010 to see what the new processors that Qualcom are coming out with. I think if they are as good as they are being made out to be, then the phones that use them will probably be far superior to the N1 and other phone similiar to the N1.

so here it is, the question of the day/week/month/or even year:
Do you plan on:
a)sticking with the droid until something far superior comes out instead of just an average upgrade (n1)
b)switching to the N1 once it is available for your carrier
c)not sure
d)switching to the iphone 4G when it is available (if you vote this it automatically bans you from the forum haha :D)

I believe it has been confirmed that Motorola is making the Nexus2. I will find the link and post it.

When it's time to upgrade, I'll weigh my options. The Droid has been extremely good to me, and the minor wait for my upgrade period to come up isn't going to kill me as much as when I was trying to get out of my Blackberry. I'm leaning slightly towards the N1, though probably not for the expected reasons. The one thing that irks me to no end with the Droid is the keyboard. For me, it's flat out useless, and that's a huge compliment compared to what I have to say about that awful direction pad that I've almost never touched. I'm actually quite impressed with the virtual keyboard and find that I type at a very quick clip on it, so I think I'd like to have a phone without the added bulk of a keyboard.

i am going to have to go with DA on this. i have heard as well that motorola is going to develop the next phone in google's direct series. which make me happy for 2 reasons 1) the droid has such a solid build compared to any other phone ihave held. it like when you hold a mac book pro (i hate mac computers by the way) you know you are holding somthing well put together and expensive. thats how i feel about the droid and how i think they will use the droid's basic deisgn to work off of for their next major android handset. 2) if this is google's next exclusive i can guarentee that as long as it comes in the fall or later that it will have a better CPU then the n1 (im crossing my fingers for the new Qualcomm one). i am having high hopes for the next motorola droid type phone. and if it is exclusive from google that means NO MOTOBLUR UI!!!!! if that was added to a power house phone like the droid i would have returned it within my first week of owning it.

Trey def. has a good point. i am going to have to take that into account as well. the only problem with the LTE is that when that is released and available we are going to have to be prepared for paying more for data plans. Once LTE starts, the 30$ unlimited data plans will end. i mean 3g is still good enough for my needs currently and i dont see any reason to get 4g but we will have to see what happens because who knows what else that could enable us to do and have access too.

If the N1 were a true world phone (GSM + CDMA), I would most likely switch. Since it isn't, I'll wait to see what the Shadow offers. I've played around with the N1 and, while I really like it, it's not good enough to warrant the hassle of replacing my very solid Droid (assuming the 2.1 update corrects some issues I've experienced).

Well I love my Droid, but if a Droid 2 comes out this year or if the new updated iPhone shows up on Verizon with background apps... which will happen first I wonder?

Im staying with my droid until future custom roms based on future updates are beyond the capabilities of the phone...or if 4g is so much better than 3g that I just have to have it. Its going to take a huge screen and some crazy processor speeds to give me a reason to change before my updgrade date in 2 years.

Going with the iPhone 4G. Say what you will, but I like it more than any other phone on the market. I love my Droid, but I love iPhones more. The N1 is tempting, but overrated tbh. Droid 2 sounds promising...

Sticking with Droid. I just bought it in January, I'm tired of buying a new phone every year. Feels like I finally have one that'll last at least 2 years.

I'm kind of surprised that nobody has mentioned that they are going to be switching over to the htc super sonic (4g phone) or the htc incredible (possible 4g) instead of going to a n1. Bigger screens and I would assume at least a little more power. Plus they have sense. I'm personally not switching for them but If I had to make a switch soon it would be to one of those. More likely the incredible due to it being on verizon

I just got my Droid so I'll be keeping it until I'm eligible to upgrade. I really like having a keyboard (even though it's not the best) so the N1 really isn't on my radar.

Nobody is really going to switch service to Sprint for a 4G device when they have limited 4G coverage in like 6 cities. Maybe buy a wireless 4G card..but to switch carriers for it now is kind of premature. No telling how long this will last till LTE is started anyways.

I don't think Sense is the selling point you make it out to be. I could learn to live with it but I chose the Droid over the Eris because I didn't care for Sense that much.

Lastly, the Incredible is possibly 4G? Since when? I know its due out any day now as its replacing the Droid Eris which is at the end of life now and Verizon hasn't got any 4G coverage right now as far as I know.

I plan on keeping my droid until Verizon has new and better Android phone so until then I will be very happy with my Droid. Not to sure if the N1 would be that much better then the Droid but I will go play with it if Verizon has it in stores.

I'm very happy with my Droid and the N1 specs don't impress me all that much. Plus, as mediocre as the Droid physical keyboard is, I switched to the Droid for its hard keyboard. If I had wanted a soft-only keyboard, I probably would have gone with the Storm 2 or waited for the N1 on VZW.

So I'll wait until something impressive comes along (LTE, anyone?) with a hard-keyboard and a nice big beautiful screen. Those are my requirements.
