5.0 out of 5 stars Great functionality and sleek interface. November 10, 2009
Well here we have it. The HTC Droid Eris from Verizon Wireless. This phone was openly criticized on electronic review sites such as [...] because it's going to be released with the Motorola Droid when the Motorola Droid offers Android OS 2.0 and this HTC model only offers 1.5. After owning both the phones for about a week and switching back and forth (yes, Verizon hates me), I'm overly satisfied with the HTC Droid Eris too. The phone does everything you could ever want with a very large app store and overall beautiful interface. The only 2 negative notes on the HTC Droid Eris would be that it could have a slightly faster processor and the battery life isn't exactly the best. When it comes to the comparison between the Motorola Droid and the HTC Droid Eris, the operating system shouldn't be a major concern because HTC does plan to offer a free upgrade to Android 2.0. The major differences are the processor speed, the amount of RAM, and the battery life. All of those categories the Motorola Droid slightly edges the HTC Droid Eris. They're both very good options, but if you're looking for something simpler and you're not going to be using your phone constantly throughout the day the HTC Droid Eris is for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars My highly opinionated review for a nearly flawless phone. November 24, 2009
I had been watching the Droid for a while, and so when I received an Email notifying me of it's release, I headed on over to the Verizon Store on launch day. All of the employees were wearing shirts that said, "Droid does," and there was a small, but significant crowd in the corner right beside the entrance. There I saw a stand where some redneck was eying this blocky, shiny black phone. Abandoned, on the same display set-up, there was a lonely, small, much sleeker, touch screen phone I did not recognize. Still eager to take my turn with the Droid, I decided to play with this other one to pass the time.

It was not long at all before I realized that the unadvertised, un-hyped Droid Eris was vastly superior.

Let me start by comparing it to the Motorola Droid (MD) (Motorola Droid A855 Phone (Verizon Wireless)). The MD Has hard edges, corners, and an unfriendly box shape. It has a thin slide-out keyboard, the keys of which have very little tactile feedback, and the rows aren't offset like a real keyboard. Also, on this slide-out panel, is a d-pad, which is almost completely unnecessary given the touch screen. The entire phone has a shiny smooth finish, making it really susceptible to scratches and fingerprints. The tech specs are a little better, with a faster cpu and a beautiful high resolution screen. Also the camera has a flash.

The Droid Eris (DE) on the other hand, is quite smaller, and has rounded edges (much like the iPhone.) It uses only the on-screen keyboard, which is not the best of all input methods, but most problems are averted by its handy correction feature.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent phone for the money November 15, 2009
I got 2 of these phones, one for me and my wife. I am extremely impressed with the ease of use with this phone, being able to use widget's to display information is an excellent tool to have. I can check my email, remotely control my desktop, or use the phone as a free modem. All using apps within the Android Market, and all for free.

I am the tech savvy one, but my wife doesn't have any issues using this phone. She is able to check her Facebook account regularly, take pictures and upload them with the touch of a button.

The Android OS combined with the Verizon Network just cant be beat.

I would strongly suggest getting a case & a screen protector. Screen protectors are easy to apply and do wonders to protect your screen.

Battery life is a little weak, but as long as you are not using applications for several hours a day you will be fine. As long as you charge your phone every night, you should have no problems.

Some of the programs are not compatible with the OS of this phone. Same with the DROID. When downloading applications at the market, be sure to read the reviews of the software. Most of them tell you compatibility issues.

NO TURN BY TURN GPS :( - The current OS of this phone does not support turn by turn GPS. This is being addressed in a patch, to be released before the end of the year.

Ease of use
Replaces every other gadget

NO Turn by Turn GPS (being addressed soon)
Battery Life is a little weak

Replaced iPhone:
I got this phone just as it came out. It has been a very amazing phone to say the least. I replaced my iPhone with this. Mostly because ever since AT&T bought Cingular the service has been absolutely horrible. It could be my area but I do live in a semi-large city.

New friend:
The Droid Eris seemed unremarkable on the surface. The screen is a bit smaller and it looked like it would not be all that impressive with regards to the apps. Within the first week I saw it had serious battery issues sprouting up. I will list some tips to circumvent these issues until we get Android 2.0 on the Eris (see below).

Since owning it a while I have completely fallen in love with this phone! It is very light, the OS is super intuitive, and there are several fora out on the web where you can find help and tips for the phone. Being it is an open source operating system and the apps are able to be developed with little or no restriction, I see this phone/OS as a real contender to the iPhone. Dont get me wrong Apple is sure to come out with a new killer phone that will blow us all away, for now it is getting a bit long in the tooth and it is great that there are other options out there for we consumers to go to. I would have stayed with the iPhone if it wasn't for the horrible AT&T service.

For the pro's I am going to mention things that are included with unlimited data package. When you get the unlimited data, select the cheaper one unless you need to connect to your companies email. The 2 data plans do not mention that both are unlimited but they both are, and if your just using the phone for everything but corporate email, choose the cheaper one. Then call Verizon to verify that you have the unlimited.
