Is the return rate on the DROID 2 the lowest out of all smartphones on Verizon?
You have to love that catchy phrase Verizon concocted when they released the Motorola DROID almost a year ago – DROID DOES! From the sound of it all, the Motorola DROID 2 is doing some wonders for the nation's number one service provider as it's reported to have one of the lowest smartphone return rates for the carrier. Even despite the issues that have been reported regarding some problems with its antenna, the handset continues to make headlines as being one of the most popular devices to be launched during this busy summer season.

When you think about it, the reasoning is pretty considerable when you factor in its flexibility of being a touchscreen device combined with an improved physical QWERTY. Hardware aside, the platform experience is substantially top-notch in almost every category – plus it's still one of the few handsets to boast Android 2.2 and support for Flash 10.1. Naturally, all of those viable reasons can cement the handset's position as having an extremely low return rate.

Also there hasn't been a new smart phone out for verizon since the droid 2 came out so there's nothing new that they would want to return it for... Just saying.

While that may be somewhat of a good point, if you look at the history of smartphones at Verizon there has very seldom ever been a smartphone worth returning anything for... other than the original Droid. Also I think their main point here is that people are genuinely happy with this phone whereas most of the previous smartphones at Verizon left much to be desired for.

I think he was saying that the X is better than the Droid 2 and the incredible basically is equal to it if not better. But the X and the Incredible are just in short supply... THus people wanting to return their droid 2 when the X and the incredible get in stock. No need for all the cases of ass up in here though.

Still, you buy it to try it. If you happen to like something else better, then return it.

Since when? I work for Verizon and very rarely order warranty replacements for the Motorola Droid... Also, 4/5 lines on my account have Moto Droids and we do not have any issues with them...

Since it was released. I also work for verizon and anyone in my center can tell you they are replaced on a regular basis for display issues and freezing/no power. Its not like its a secret.

Let's not forget the Blackberry Storm the Most Returned/Exchanged phone in history, Moto Droid can not even come close to the Blackberry return rate.

that is why they are releasing the r2-d2 version so late...So they won't get the returns.

being newer it dose not make it better than the older models ..... Droid X still beats every android phone out there in the bench mark test (except Nexus 1 2.2 ).

8. Am0795 unregistered

No no, the droid x does beat the nexus on 2.2...i have 2.2 on my droid x and trust me it beats it by far.....the problem is quadrant benchmark doesn't really recognize the ti omaps... and if anyone knows the like 3 other testing programs for your phone...pls tell me...Quadrant is the only one i remember.

What is so great about the X? The lack of 2.2 from Moto? the email problems? the volume problems? I have it and I am counting the days till i get rid of it. I just with I could return it for the Fascinate.

Get a replacement. I have the X and a couple friends of mine do as well and do not have the issues you are mentioning. My guess is you got a lemon...

Yeah but most people don't care about the benchmark tests.

My CAPTIVATE benchmarks around 2900 quadrant score and has a linpack score average of 12.0 - it beats DROID X :-) - "I am just saying"

Yeah but who would want the Fascinate with all of the Bing apps set to default and Google search missing? What a stupid idea for an Android phone.
