Hey guys,
Earlier this month i posted saying i had just got a LG Ally. Well it was a good start phone for android but tommarow i will be geting a Droid 2 Globle i found on craigslist for $60. I have been reading up on in and found out the globle has a 1.2Ghz prosseser. Is that true?? Would this phone still be good as a daily driver?

Thanks Matt.

The primary advantage of the Droid 2 Global is that it supports both CDMA and GSM networks. If you're travelling around the planet a lot, this is the phone for you. Otherwise, it's an Android 2.2 which is really old and doesn't make sense getting right now but considering you're buying it for $60, that's a pretty good price. What condition is the phone in?

And yes, it has a 1.2 GhZ processor.

It looks to be in almost pristine shape. (Sorry if i dident spell that word right). The new asistant manager at where i work lives closer to the seller so he whent and picked it up for me. He as been useing android based phones since he got his first phone. He said it looked in great shape, no craks in the screen or any thing. I will be geting it tonight and installing some custom ROMs to see if i can get it to run any better. Any ROMs you would seggest?

I would suggest MIUI for a phone with that horsepower.

It is very pretty and makes your phone look awesome :)

I've got CM10 running on my Droid 2 and it runs pretty good. Probably not a lot of different between CM9 and CM10, but ...

The only problem I have is that video doesn't work. Camera does, but no video.
