7 common gripes/complaints about the DROID/Milestone

1. Applications freeze up for no obvious reasons

“…Configured both personal (hotmail) and business (Exchange) email accounts on my new Droid last night, and everything was fine until I experienced a crash while tring to view a Microsoft .xlsx attachment…”

2. DROID’s keyboard (both physical and virtual) sucks

3. DROID has poor battery life

“…Like everyone, I want a GPS, Wi-Fi, 3G and Bluetooth-enabled smartphone with a battery that lasts for a week. Turn all those wireless tools on, and the Droid’s battery is dead after a few hours…”

If you are using a magnetic phone case to carry your DROID right now, stop using it immediately. Magnetic phone cases can silently ‘activate’ DROID smartphones!

4. DROID has a good-for-nothing camera

I thought everything will turn out okay after November 17th but I was wrong. We still have users complaining about DROID’s camera.

5. DROID ‘loves’ echoes

“…My wife complains that the phone sounds like there is an echo. I notice that the sound on incoming calls is also tinny and clips…”

6. DROID does not support multitouch

Perhaps in the US but in Europe and Canada, Motorola Milestone (same phone, different name) does support multitouch.

7. DROID has a loose battery cover

Discovered this last Thursday and I was really shocked by it! Motorola DROID has a loose battery cover!? Oh boy… Even though it sounds pretty bad but it can be fixed quite easily with a small flat screwdriver.
