This is the phone that started it all. The device that took direct aim at the competition with original marketing and a whole new mindset. Sit back, relax and and enjoy a look at my daily driver: The Motorola Droid.
Could I ask what settings you have for setcpu. I want to run gingerbread on my og, but my battery life is always so horrible. I get like 4-5 hours tops.
I have it between 1250MHz and 550MHz when the screen is on [half brightness usually]. When the screen is off or not in use it underclocks to a maximum frequency of 125MHz.
I too am still rocking the OG Droid. Like you, I'm eying the next gen Nexus device. I'm running the Project Elite ROM at 1ghz. If I could upgrade the RAM, I'd be a happy camper.
I got my Nexus One before the Moto Droid hit the market... It may have a little slower processor and less int memory that the new phones coming out... but it still SMOKES most phones that are on 3G... as long as it keeps getting OA updates and working I will keep it...
The Moto Droid was the second Android phone to be commissioned by Google with the purpose to save the then struggling Android product line. It was the sixth Android device to be released and the first to be released with 2.0. And if it hadn't took off like it did then Google was thinking about pulling the plug on Android. The Nexus One was ninth to be released and came out three months after the Droid. Between the Droid's top notch specs and awesome marketing campaign it deserves the crown of the Android handset that kicked off the revolution we are enjoying today. To be fair I do like the Nexus devices and have wanted one for a while, but where I live CDMA rules the air waves (waiting for the Prime). And the G1 does deserve to be mentioned for being the first Android device released.
