    Re: The Droid Review... IN REAL TIME

    i purchase this earpiece (photo) at √erizon tonight, it sounds good, no background noise as i talked with the TV on, great connection, nothing FANCY, its just a good reliable handsfree earpiece with a solid connection.

    It can be connected to the phone during conversation, if you're talking and decide you want to be handsfree, just plug it in and talk, or pull it out and talk, no interrupting calls. SIMPLICITY

    Operating the phone functions has to be done by hand, the earpiece will not control calls or calling options.

    The photo was taken with the DROID and the headset is the JABRA EAR WAVE BOOM

    DROID Battery Gaggle




    The more you add programs/Apps to the DROID, the more chances of something going wrong, not playing right, or just making your phone act funny.

    Replacing programs, adding 3rd party Apps, and KILLING APPS can make the DROID do funny things or just not work right.

    STOP KILLING APPS… repeat…STOP KILLING APPS; they’re supposed to run in the background. The only Apps you should kill or turn off are… GPS, BLUETOOTH, and Wi-Fi, they will drain a battery, so if your not using them, make sure they are turned off.

    I had 15 Apps running one night on a NOT so fully charged battery, i left my DROID on over night to test the battery, when I woke up the battery was night drained, not even close to being drained.

    The DROID has a LINUX operating system that uses a lot of services and supporting Apps that are always running in the background. They will not use power/CPU unless they are in use performing a service. If your DROID needs memory to operate an App, the operating system will close and open Apps as needed or not needed to maintain memory.

    If you have a ton of Apps on your phone, there might be a App that sucks up power, if you find your battery draining fast, go to the settings on the DROID, go to… ABOUT… THE GO TO battery use above and check BATTERY USE and see what’s at the top of the list drawing all that power.


    My phone right now (730 p.m.) reads, 61% IS DISPLAY…17% VOICE CALLS… 9% IS IDLE PHONE, and 8% is SYSTEM STAND BY.

    There are millions of Apps hitting the market, many are written by inexperience people, so be aware what you're installing/downloading on your phone.

    Droid Maps


    I touch my (home) destination shortcut ICON on my home screen and MAPS gave me directions from my location to my house; and it worked great. Of course I knew where I was going and lived in the area for years, so i test making some wrong turns, and sure enough the DROID recalculated, but it did miss some turns to get me back on track taking me to the next street to make the turn I could of made a block before, no big deal.

    I would advise getting a phone holder/dock station if you need your GPS constantly, I had the phone on the seat and cup holder draw, and taking your eyes off the road to look down can be dangerous, luckily I didn’t really need directions or depended on the GPS.






    The virtual traffic display is like a video car game experience, I wasn’t crazy about the robotic voice announcing the directions, but it’s an android, what do expect… lol

    I pulled my car over to checkout the options on GPS and touch LAYERS. I switch to satellite, traffic, and viewed the options for ATM, gas stations… that was pretty cool if I was in need of one.

    When I turn down my street and the directions told me my destination was on the left, it also gave me a photo of my house, now that was cool, I’ve gotten to destinations and i would still be was looking for it (address), now I can have a photo if one exist in the system.

    The application does a good job if your lost, I like it.

    It's more than with a basic phone simply because retail value is much higher with PDA/Smartphones.

    Also, the deductible is at least $70 (as opposed to $50) for the droid with insurance.

    Still cheaper than $560.
    Didn't really like the phone.....

    DROID Cases and MOUNTING

    If you own a DROID or if you plan on getting one, you’ll hear the term MOUNT/MOUNTING your SD-card.

    Its similar to using a scan disk adapter, you insert your SD-card into the adapter and plug it into you computer, a disk drive appears on the screen, (you can name it) click on it and it opens to drop files into appropriate folders, or you can create a folder (Mac users). By placing the SD-Card in the phone and having to remove the battery cover and battery to reach the SD-Card and remove it, it’s more applicable to use an external USB connection to connect your computer and phone to exchange info/files.

    I prefer an external SD-Card (LG Dare) to remove by hand, stick it in a scan disk adapter, plug to my computer, exchange files, put the SD-Card back into the phone all… without interrupting the use of the phone.


    What I did was connect my USB cable (phone to Comp) and a icon will appear in the top status bar of the DROID, I scrolled it down and touched the USB notification message, it the asked me if I wanted to mount (lingo: connect/open SD-card). I pressed MOUNT and the icon appears on my computer screen, I clicked on it, and opened the SD-card and dropped my files.

    I ejected (closed) the SD-card on my screen and UNMOUNTED the SD-card by way of my phone by following the step notifications. Pretty easy…


    I mentioned a VOICE RECORDER to record your notes/reminder/info or a audio message option, I found a good App called… VOICE RECORDER (FREE). Check it (link below) out and you decide. Voice record a message and send it, worked pretty good.
    Android Market

    Update On My Cases…

    One good thing I’ll mention about the √erizon case I use (photos in Thread and below)… the clip makes it very easy to take off your belt… I then take the phone out to use instead of taking the phone out of the case while on my hip. I use this method because i found taking the phone out of the case while it’s on your belt/hip can cause a fumble. I’m starting to take the case off and laying it on a surface (table/desk/counter/) where I’m sitting with the phone remaining in the case for protection.

    DROID Apps

    Take a look at QiK on the DROID (market), its use for uploading videos for public/private, viewing and sending.

    Qik | Share Live Video From Your Mobile Phone



    Vixy AVS Converter… you can go to the website on your computer and convert Video files.

    http://vixy.net/



    I purchased a App called PicSay Pro; this is a photo-editing program, if you’re into editing photos, take a look at this App in (market).


    I downloaded the above Apps to enhance the DROID’S photo/video abilities. Vixy may come in handy if i need to covert a Movie.
