Not only did Verizon introduce the Motorola DROID earlier this month, but also the HTC DROID ERIS, as both are the first two Android-based devices for the wireless provider. But the HTC DROID ERIS is not to be dismissed, as it offers a lot...

How can you make a negative that it doesn't compare to a different phone?? I'm calling shenanigans on this review. I'm sorry PhoneArena, but you shouldn't review one phone and compare it to a phone that it isn't meant to compare to.

How is it not meant to compare to the Eris. I know with me and my Hero I compared it plenty to the Moment (the other android device on Sprint)... Many people pick an OS they want then have to weight the pros and cons between the devices offering that OS or experience. Pretty soon the Eris is also supposed to have 2.0 according to HTC so then little differences like battery life do make a huge difference. Also, what other phone should they be comparing the talk time to. At least they picked another Verizon phone. They could have went and said "not as much talk time as a blackberry curve", which would be way out there since Blackberry is a completely different OS and not even a touch screen. I am surprised it only got an 8 when the Sprint Hero got a 9, but I do suppose dropping the battery size really does hurt the phone, and also that the Droid is available on Verizon as well.

The Eris is an amazing phone. I have it my wife has the Droid and I dont plan on changing. The Droid does have a bigger screen, but the phone is like carrying around a TV remote or something. The Eris slips right into my pocket. The Sense UI to me is better then whats on the Droid. It runs smooth. I use the Advance Task Killer, and use it throughout the day and it helps my battery.
