Swype Keyboard

An alternative to the Android virtual keyboard, the Swype virtual keyboard allows you to input text by swiping the finger with one continuous finger or stylus motion across the screen keyboard. Based on testing, speed, and accuracy are equal to or better than the traditional keyboard-tapping method. You can activate the Swype keyboard by pressing and holding in a text field, wait for popup to appear, click Input Method, and then select Swype.

In the image to the left, the word "mind" was generated from tracing the path shown above in a fraction of a second, by roughly aiming to pass through the letters of the word. A key advantage to Swype is that there is no need to be very accurate, enabling very rapid text entry.

I have been using my Droid 2 Global for 2 months The battery was an issue early on, but I bought the Motorola extended battery and am satisfied with the battery life now. I'm usually at 60-70% after 10 hours light use. The battery charges fast. I charge every night and always have no matter what phone I've had. The screen is bright and crisp. Sunlight washes it out just like you would expect. Call quality is good. The speakerphone is good. The phone has a multicolored led indicator for messages. I got a case with the phone, but don't use it because it interfered with the top row of keys. I like the keyboard and can't imagine not having one. The feel of the keys is not as good as my last phone, but still quite good. The camera is ok. I don't expect to be producing any artwork with it. This is the first smart phone I've had where I felt the internet was usable. Download speeds are not painful. I wouldn't surf for hours on it because of the screen size. Pages are rendered well. This is my first Android phone. Learning the system did take some time, just like any new OS would. I was able to make and receive calls, texts, and get on the internet before leaving the store. I have found new apps to replace the ones on my old phone. Moving music to the phone was easy. When using the phone and a text field opens up, you usually have the option to press the microphone button and dictate the text. The phone does a good job with speech to text. It's not quicker than typing, but is sometimes easier. If you use Google services ( Gmail, calendar, tasks, picasa, voice, or talk) they are very well integrated with Android. I like having a lanyard attached to my phone so I can keep it in my breast pocket and not have it fall out. There is no lanyard connection on the phone, so I have had to make my own.Read more ›

After years as a dedicated BlackBerry (BB) user, I decided it was time for a change. Advertisement after enticing advertisement promised me a quicker, more Internet-friendly workhorse of a smart phone known as the Droid 2. The high tech commercials were intended for me! It I had to have one! I could not live without it! I convinced my husband that it was the best thing since peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and the next night I had my Droid. As I held my new Motorola Droid 2 Global phone in my sweaty palm, I felt myself salivate.
It was everything I imagined and more. I connected to the Internet on a 3G network and within no time had bonded with my Droid. The touchscreen keyboard and screen auto-rotation had my full attention as I continued to play. I personalized the seven home screens with my favorite application icons. I could group them by kind and reposition them. It felt more like a touchscreen computer than a phone. It was definitely "smarter" than my BlackBerry! I downloaded various free applications from the "Market" and was impressed with the variety, download times, and ease of installation. The battery lasted the entire day without needing to be charged and there were several battery options to conserve energy. A free car charger and USB cord for tethering were supplied with the Droid. I agree with the majority of other reviewers. Go Global or go home!

I'll make this short and to the point... YES, the battery life can, at times, be short. So far, that hasn't been an issue for me since I'm big about it being on the charger when it's not in use. EVERYTHING else about the phone is AWESOME! I will say that the white is not a bright white but an off white. Not that that is a big deal though. The apps are fantastic. My 3 year old son LOVES the kid apps I have. I LOVE that the kid apps are educational and not at all inappropriate for his age range. I would have to say that if you want a smartphone, get this one and you will not be at all sorry (so long as you go in knowing that the battery can go quickly if you're always on some app or another).

I have recently bought my Droid 2 Global (Winter White Edition) from AmazonWireless. After about a week of putting this phone through its paces I have almost nothing but high praises for the the phone. I love the keyboard, it is simply amazing. Just the right amount of curvature to the buttons, plenty of bounce and quite firm. The screen is glorious also. It is pretty zippy, and seems to fly through apps, and we browsing with ease. Haven't had any real problems with it freezing or crashing. The speaker quality while not great is still better than average and certainly livable. The Motorola UI is pretty clean and simple. However the Social Networking app needs to have more settings. Also the notepad widget isn't the best because unless you can pin it to your homescreen their doesn't seem to be any way to save the notes. An extra home screen or two would have been great but the 7 work just fine.

However there is one major flaw with this phone....the battery life is atrocious! I am lucky to get 5 hours of just moderate use out of a charge. So if you buy this phone, definitely get either an extended battery or do what I did and buy a few OEM battery's and a stand alone charger. The phone just sucks down power, and even with the help of power saving apps it still barely lasts five hours with moderate use (some texting one or two sub 5 minute calls, maybe 25 mins of facebook and 20 of twitter and some misc use of other apps.)If you want to use it as a GPS, say goodbye to the battery....because it will drain it in a zip!

Other than that I can't really complain, oh yeah besides it not having an 8mp camera.

Beautiful phone
Full QWERTY keyboard
Simple clean UI
Comes preloaded with a Office app

Horrible battery life
Buttons on side of phone can be hard to use at times
Could have used larger internal storage and a larger camera
