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.
