Verizon Droid X / Android Update
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on June 26th, 2012 @ 4:42PM
Also fuck Motorola. Both of my M phones have blown.
What a piece of shit. Maybe upgrade in August? Not sure what's out there. I liked the Droid 4 keyboard.
Yesterday, the phone stopped calling at all. It just says connected and no dial tone or anything. I brought it and and the jerks wiped all the phone including all the apps. Now I have to start all over again customizing it. It did save everything on my memory card though. They fixed the problem as far as I can tell. I guess I'll have to try it a while.
No one told me the 2.2 Android came out on Sept 24. I've been on 2.1 all that time. It says the phone was supposed to offer it up but it never did. :(
=After about 6 hours it decided to charge again. Strange.
=Today I forgot to charge it and it ran out of batteries. Now it won't charge up at all via USB or direct line. I think maybe the battery has had it. Lame.
Geez, then the bill comes. $516. $100 rebate they make you wait for over a month for. $100+ for phone bill for last month and this month + the phone. That's nuts. I can see why people do pre-paid phones.
Droid X Car Dock & Home Dock Demo - Awesome. I do like my old Garmin GPS though. I might skip the car dock. The home dock is the best. I don't have it yet though.
Update 5: Loving the phone. It does heat up a lot when you use it sometime. Also the camera is the biggest piece of shit ever. Maybe there's some secret to using it but the pictures look worse than any picture or camera I've ever had.
I would say must by if you're on Verizon. The large size pays off when browsing the web or using other programs.
Update 4: I took 4 photos with the camera and like people said, the pictures are HORRIBLE quality, Grainy. I don't think any camera I've had has done worse pictures. There must be some trick to it.
Playing with my phone for several hours. It's really cool. The bigger screen as people said is actually cool. It gives you more room to type. It also fits in my pocket still.
I can't seem to log into expectnothing.com though, it just keeps refreshing the page without loggin in. I remember a LONG time ago I used to have that problem all the time in IE.
I hate how it adds my 600 facebook lamers to my contacts for phone though. It's also confusing as to how to add a picture to a contact or how to msg someone a picture.
Update 3: Got my phone. My first comment is HEAVY. It tires my arm out. Second comment is horrible instructions how to install the battery. I still think I did it wrong. There's a tab that says PULL but I'm not sure if you're supposed to pull. There's also some weird white thing on the battery lead which you'd think it wants you to remove but I think you're not supposed to. Way to not be user friendly.
Update: - Was hoping it would arrive today. No idea when the mail comes. Still not here at 12:40.
Update: - They're shipping it from Ontario CA to Oregon. Where it will be shipped back to 30 miles away from Ontario later on, all to avoid sales tax. haha.
My lady ordered the $60 accessory pack (leather case with stand, car charger, blue tooth).
I hate that blue tooth crap. I just use speakerphone.
We'll see! I'm looking for a good case. I might return the one she got since I've never seen it. One problem though is if you get a case, you can't fit in the media charger stand.
I'll let you know if I ever get it. We should be playing Sc2 soon so there will be something else to do.
I'm looking at their web page app store and it seems like the apps really suck vs. Apple store. Maybe it's worth waiting another year or so until they catch up?
I realize there's more available via the phone directly but it's hard to check that without a phone. I do know it's 65,000 apps vs. 250,000.
I'm thinking of getting one.
What do you think about the Android Applications available?
Preview from 6/15 - They're supposed to announce it tomorrow. I'm thinking maybe get one. I'm thinking it might be $250?
