Sources[edit]

Where are all the sources? (76.89.112.26 (talk) 05:52, 4 April 2010 (UTC))

ROM available to user?[edit]

If ROM is read only how can some be allocated to user? Is it only partially writable, what? Why is this even necessary? What is on the RAM at purchase that makes it important? Is the use of ROM just another meaning for solid state hard drive? --72.64.105.184 (talk) 03:09, 13 April 2010 (UTC)

Not really ROM per se, just Read Only to the OS[edit]

The ROM is where the operating system is installed -- Its only available to be written to when the device is being installed, its Read Only to the OS. More ROM means newer (and larger) versions of Android are supported. Earlier phones (specifically the G1 and G2) have issues because they don't have enough ROM for later versions of Android (the 2.* version).

RAM is storage for applications. More RAM = more apps. The SD card is only for media.

Someone please upload a picture[edit]

GIF Format[edit]

A minor gripe, but I'd like to see a mention of whether Animated GIF is supported. It's been poorly supported in some previous Android phones. It's a tough thing to categorize, the Android framework plays them as video. There are basically 2 issues, how they are treated in pages viewed in the browser, and how they are treated by native apps. If they are treated as static images, only displaying the first frame, that does not count as supporting the format. 74.115.216.130 (talk) 00:40, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

Motorola Droid[edit]

Is this phone the same as the Motorola Droid? If not, what is the difference? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.19.14.15 (talk) 15:48, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

NO, it's not the same. The Motorola is made by Motorola. The HTC is made by HTC. Different hardware entirely. They both have the name "Droid" because they were licensed under that name by Verizon, who is using it to describe their Google Android Operating System phones.205.161.26.48 (talk) 06:47, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

Tricks and Guide[edit]

Sorry but this section is very unwikipedian. The content belongs on a forum somewhere, or on a fan site or help site, not wikipedia. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 216.99.65.63 (talk) 21:24, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

Agree This is unneeded. See Wikipedia is not a manual, guidebook, textbook, or scientific journal.  A p3rson  03:30, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Neutrality[edit]

Normally an edit comment doesn't make a serious claim on the neutrality of an article, but it this case, I think the anonymous editor has a point: (1) The large "Problems" section seems to give undue weight to what appears to be transient problems in the first week or two of its introduction. That section needs to be edited with some insight into what has some permanent significance to the product. (2) The product has been positively reviewed and some of them can be summarized and referenced in the article. patsw (talk) 21:10, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

"Problems" section is a mess[edit]

The last section is full of uncited statements, weasel words, and bias. It needs to be heavily rewritten and cited or outright removed. Slinky317 (talk) 01:12, 10 June 2010 (UTC)

Problems just became "critical reception". I'm still looking for a mixed or negative review. patsw (talk) 15:46, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

Signal strength and call quality[edit]

An anonymous editor restored the detail which I deleted regarding opinions of signal strength and call quality from an android message board.

So what level of detail seems appropriate for this issue for this article? Personally, I'd like to see a WP:RS look at this and we can summarize it here. For the record, I am being generous here as content from http://phandroid.com could be deleted solely on the basis that it is not a reliable source. patsw (talk) 00:59, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

downloading music[edit]

an you do it?? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.225.222.24 (talk) 08:54, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

Froyo and Root sections updated[edit]

I updated the sections on Froyo (Android 2.2) including citations, as well as the section on rooting the device, describing the initial root race condition and the more useful "iPhone-like" version now available. --ChrisKurtz (talk) 21:46, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

HTC Droid Incredible Saved a Life[edit]

Stopped a bullet. Saved John Garber. http://news.cnet.com/8301-17852_3-20027876-71.html --Pulseczar (talk) 16:59, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

Platform development, hacking, and modifications[edit]

Strongly suggest revision of Platform development, hacking, and modifications, especially below the code box.

Move discussion in progress[edit]

There is a move discussion in progress which affects this page. Please participate at Talk:Motorola Droid RAZR - Requested move and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —Born2cycle (talk) 00:12, 20 October 2011 (UTC)

Like Sprint EVO 4G?[edit]

I don't understand this line: "The device is similar to the Sprint HTC Evo 4G."

The HTC Droid Incredible is not similar at all to the HTC EVO 4G. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.176.125.98 (talk) 05:20, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
