You can easily overclock a droid (100 precent stable I might add) to 1ghz basicly making it a Nexus one. I love mine and paid 200 for it .. so trust me this is a steal.
So is the processor in the droid basically downclocked from the factory? I don't get it, especially when people report basically the same battery life out of their droid.
Amen, that is awesome. It was tough for me to get the iPhone over the Droid, and I can't wait to see the options available the next time my contract is up. For $50, anyone with Verizon should jump on this.Overclocking a phone is just super fucking Badass. Now I want one.
Anybody know if Verizon has plans that include internationl text, email & voice calls? Will corporate dicounts be applied after recieving the fone & can one change a fone number to another area code?? Thanks for any info. ROCK ON!
more info on how to OC the droid please!!
I priced one out for me and wife.
$70 for the family plan
$50 to add an additional phone
$30x2 for the data plans
$180 a month? Are they serious? It would be cheaper to do two individual plans than a family plan. Even then it would be $140 a month.
Anyone see a way to do a cheaper plan than this?
Not sure where you're getting those prices
$70 - Shared 700 min Family talk
$10 - Each additional line
$30x2 - 3G phone access
I get $140 a month plus taxes.
$140/mo isn't that bad considering its 2 smartphones.
I have the Family share 700 w/ text 2 smartphones and 1 line for the kid. my monthly total is about $150 with a discount through wife's work (~17%)
If that's too much then maybe verizon isn't for you. There's a reason Sprint and Tmo have a different business model.

well, the 600/550mhz cortex a6 is right up there with the snapdragon at 1ghz. don't judge by just mhz, i think we have learned that for the last 10 years.
Everything that Ive found for overclocking points to this thread.
At lunch Im OCing mine.My friend is running his at 1ghz instead of the stock settings and it is stable,runs quicker,no heat differences.
The droid's processor is nowhere near the N1's snapdragon, at least according to Ars:
However it would be interested to see OC numbers, even though your battery life would be terrible with a 70% OC. I remember I had an app back in the day on my Treo that would "OC" it, but of course it didn't work. +1 for linux
Dang, if only I hadn't had to replace my phone in September and sign up for a plan...
I could really go for a Droid right now.
I was going to wait for details on the next gen iPhone, but I've decided to never give any more money to Apple
So I'm debating between this one and the Nexus One (my dad has it)... probably going back to Verizon too, since AT&T and T-Mobile have awful service in my area
At 1GHz my droid returns a linpack score of 8.3. I can't tell a difference in battery consumption or heat in the last few hours of playing around. It still idles/sleeps at the same lower clock speed.
