  • Using this phone 10 years later is a lot like using no phone at all.

  • Yeah, we're coming up on the 10th anniversary of the original Motorola Droid, which was a very iconic phone.

  • It launched Android into relevancy.

  • I'm gonna use the droid for one week to see if it's even usable 10 years later.

  • So my dad used to work for Motorola.

  • For almost 20 years, I was director of product strategy and operations for the mobile devices business.

  • He has this bananas collection of, like hundreds of old phones.

  • He calls it his museum.

  • It's just so boxes in his basement.

  • But that is where I got this droid from.

  • That's fine.

  • Just cobwebs on a lot of this stuff.

  • I mean, this has been a long time ago and years.

  • Exactly.

  • Yeah, the droid was important at the time because Verizon didn't have the iPhone, and it was the first of many droid variants that were launched at Verizon in subsequent years.

  • The original droid had 512 meg of storage, 256 meg of RAM, five megapixel camera.

  • It was the first android device to support that you clear operating system and the first android device to support Verizon's network technology.

  • It just like hot old keyboard smell.

  • You know, you got my two phones.

  • I'm going to swap my SIM card out into the droid.

  • We will see if it functions now.

  • The original original droid was Verizon Exclusive.

  • So this is technically a different version, but it looks exactly the same.

  • The other ones that I have do not even have the SIM card slot.

  • My current phone has a Nano SD card.

  • I hunted down this bad boy so that I could fit it into the droid again.

  • We're going to trade the Nano for the chunky.

  • We turn it on.

  • I don't know what the power button is.

  • It's the one with the iconic power symbol on it.

  • Oh, please insert a same card.

  • Okay, so we're gonna need to plan B.

  • I think going on a mission to find compatible SD card.

  • I failed.

  • If your mobile not fries and nothing target nothing.

  • Even Verizon said with phone just isn't supported on their network anymore, even without a SIM card.

  • So what we're gonna dio is I am going to go data only sort of my current phone will be my WiFi hotspots.

  • And this phone will talk to it because I don't really call or text anybody.

  • Anyways, here's what I'm gonna look out for.

  • I'm gonna track how long the battery lasts.

  • I'm going to see how terrible the camera is.

  • I'm gonna see how long I can operate with the current operating system before I update on that.

  • After I do that, I'm going to see if I can download and use any of my APS.

  • We gotta watch instagram stories.

  • So how's my week bed?

  • Using this phone 10 years later is a lot like using no phone at all.

  • I cannot update Theo s.

  • There is no app store.

  • The APP store is Thea Android Marketplace, which became defunct in 2012 when they replaced it with the Google Play Store, the Google Play store.

  • It can only be used on jelly bean or higher, which is 4.1, I believe so.

  • Basically, I can't do anything but take pictures and listen to music.

  • The camera is not bad.

  • There's only one.

  • It's only five megapixels.

  • So all the photos look like something my mom would take, but they're they're not bad.

  • I was able to take a photo on the droid and uploaded straight to Facebook onto my news feed, which I was honestly super impressed by.

  • I wasn't able to tag anybody or add a caption, so there's just a random photo of my co workers on my feet with no context.

  • But it did work.

  • It is updating the news speed in somewhat real time, but you can only get to post at a time on Lee text posts, profile pictures and use their names.

  • Do not show up.

  • And if you try and click older posts to update the news feed, then the whole app shuts down.

  • I looked into routing the phone, which is basically jail breaking for Android.

  • Basically, routing would allow me to force an OS update on the phone, but I wasn't able to accomplish that.

  • So we're still stuck in 2.1.

  • The process of physically plugging your phone into the computer and dragging and dropping songs into a folder was so nostalgic I haven't downloaded a song in years.

  • I Onley stream on Spotify.

  • I don't have music stored locally on my actual phone.

  • I thought it was really gonna like the physical keyboard, but my thumbs air to Peggy and it's hard.

  • I like the click click.

  • I like the physicality of it, but the actual functionality of it is mawr difficult than it needs to be.

  • The droid is definitely not going to let you do everything that a modern phone will let you dio.

  • Now that's like an understatement.

  • I mostly miss my APS.

  • I want Instagram and this dumb, solitary game that I've been playing.

  • As we finish this up, I'm going to really try to actually use it instead of ignoring it.

  • So the camera is crappy er than I thought it waas.

  • I tried taking a video of my cat in My kitchen is nighttime, but the light was on.

  • I was sitting on the floor and with the camera.

  • If you if you pointed up towards stuff near the top of the room, it's bright.

  • But if you point it down to the cat, there is nothing.

  • It is a complete darkness.

  • The camera just shuts down basically and pretends that it doesn't have to do its job.

  • It's so like foggy.

  • No matter how much I clean the camera, everything it just looks like I'm in a room filled with smoke.

  • E only have to charge the battery twice over the entire week.

  • If I was connected to a network or constantly using the phone or constantly connected to WiFi, the battery would have been eaten up.

  • But just the fact that it is that old and lasted that long anyways, I still think is impressive.

  • If you have an old droid laying around, it would be really useful as like an MP three player for a child who on Lee needs 60 songs and doesn't want to access any other features a phone should offer.

  • Phones are updated so quickly these days that, like one year to the next, they're obsolete.

  • When you buy a fridge, you want that fridge last forever.

  • When you buy a TV, you want that TV to last forever.

  • With a phone, you buy the phone and you want it to last until the next year, when the new version of that phone comes out.

  • So it's not that surprising that after 10 years, this phone does not work.

  • I haven't tried the speaker equality.

  • Let's do that.

  • Let's listen to this movie Movie is the best Disney movie.

Using this phone 10 years later is a lot like using no phone at all.
