I've been using this phone for 3 months and yes, I fall in love with this phone. But while the built quality is impressive and very good hardware spec, the software department needs a lot of improvements.
The home screen and apps drawer is very laggy with minimal functionality. I replaced with LauncherPro. The performance improved a lot and the apps drawer is very snappy.
The GSM Arena review fussed about no Divx/Xvid support but I just installed Rock Player from the Market and it solve the issue.
Rooting is very simple with Universal Androot. and Milestone Overclock 1.4.2 helps me make the phone running 1GHz. The benchmarks said when it's running 1GHz, it's better than Nexus One with Eclair or HTC Desire.
The ROM has only 150 Mb which is very little space to install apps. With help from XDA-Developers, I managed to make App2SD working. Now I'm enjoying the 1Gb partition on my SD card to install as many apps as I want.
That's all improvement so far I've done and there's still left room for further improvements. It will be nice if we can get offline and voice guided navigation system.

Just got mine yesterday, which is my 5th Moto Android phone this year. Paid US$435 with a contract on 6 months for US$4.5 (the decimal is correct!), which is used by my mother-in-law.
So even if one adds the contract fee for 6 months, the total cost would be only US462. (vs. MSRP of US$511)

The OVI map is completly free but not Motonavi et seems like in India and USA for Droid it is Free. The option that you will have it's maybe to use Google map but we wish Motonavi will become free.

It is very cool. I used the GPS too(on a shop). If example I want to find a Hotel, I have to use the AGPS? And I have to pay 4 it? This is what I want to know 100%. Thanks. By the way on HTC p[hones this is defferent. You can use AGPS too without to pay.

You can find a place with GPS right?(example a street) AGPS=Assisted GPS(you have to pay 4 it on Motorola phones as I know). Example on HTC forums you can use AGPS too. I saw some reviews here, and I didn't saw that you have to pay... By the way I don't have a big experience in this category...

The Google map would require data for the map where you are at, unless, you had been there already. Of course you can find a free Wifi hotspot to do that as well.
