Looking comparatively, I can say I *do* prefer Cantarell, it is more 
spaced, having "air to breath"... compared with it Droid looks to me 
crammed, busy.
I also  like Cantarell shapes, think they are more elegant, giving us a 
more special, individual look - compare for example the glyph for "8" in 
both fonts.
