I am very unhappy with the phone and I would like a refund or an exchange for a different phone. The phone constantly shuts off by itself. The charge doesn't last for more then a few hours. When ever I charge the phone or try to charge it the charger plug that plugs into the phone has to be moved a certain way to charge the phone otherwise the phone doesn't charge. Live streaming is a waste of time because loading is extremely slow. My old phone was better then this phone and I got a new phone thinking it was going to be better. Not happy at all.

Great for apps and texting
Great phone for a great price! Battery life is short so you have to do everything you can to conserve. The features are endless but again, battery life. Easy to use. A little slow between transitions but I would recommend this phone to some one who likes app and texting. :)

I did purchase this phone at a discounted rate, but I still wish I had spent that money elsewhere. This phone is not dependable at all! The battery life is so poor, even when apps are purchased to monitor the battery usage and when GPS and Wifi are turned off. I charge this phone 2x a day and do nothing but text and internet on it. I rarely talk on it. When I do, I believe the mic is either broken or very poor. Everyone I talk to says I sound "muffled". Along with those issues, the screen locks up or goes crazy. I have had it type out random letters in a text message without even touching it. The only good parts are the navigation settings and keyboard for when the screen goes crazy. When making calls, it is very unpredictable. about 50% of the time, it will be calling, and the line is completely dead air. After multiple attempts, I have to turn off the phone and then it will work. I know this isnt my network, since my last phone made calls with no delay or issues.
I do not recommend this phone to anyone. There are so many on the market that are more worth the money spent, so research wisely.Read full review

It's a great phone with great features, very sturdy, durable, & reliable!
This is a good, solid phone, with the features I need.
Several months ago, I was working in a shop that was dedicated to rebuilding broken mobile phones. That is where I got my exposure to the Motorola Droid models A855, A955, and A956. I worked with phones that were stomped, smashed, hit with a hammer, run over by a car, thrown against a wall, and just destroyed in any way imaginable. The amazing thing that I found in these Motorola Droids was the rugged construction that usually kept the electronics intact and functional. This kind of durability, coupled with all the features and functionality that I need in a mobile phone, led me to purchase a Motorola Droid 2 Global (A956) for my own use.
I am very satisfied with this phone. It is truly the best phone I have ever owned to date. My previous smartphones were: Motorola Q, HTC Ozone, and HTC Imagio, all of which employed WindowsPhone OS. The Motorola A956 marks my move to Android. I have found that Android is much more stable than WindowsPhone, and it has far more apps available (especially the free apps).
My only gripe with this phone is that it is difficult to unlock, and so far impossible to root, after upgrading the Android OS from Froyo to Gingerbread and upgrading to the latest firmware. According to everything I've read in discussion forums and reviews, rolling back the OS and firmware to root and unlock the phone is an unwise move, as it will basically render the phone useless. However, there is nothing wrong with the phone in its upgraded state. The phone operates as it was intended in design. It is smooth in operation, very reliable, and very sturdy.
The slide-out keypad is responsive and comfortable to use. The on-screen virtual keypads are also pretty responsive and comfortable. The touch-screen on the Motorola Droid models requires a heavier touch than some phones by competitors such as HTC, or Samsung. Yet, I figure this is no big deal, and it is probably attributable to the ruggedness of the screen. So far as I have seen, the touch-screen on the Motorola Droids is more resistant to cracks from being dropped. That's a fair trade-off for simply having to employ a slightly heavier touch.Read full review
