    Lightbulb Which droid should I grab?

    I recently broke my Original droid(damn you water damage) and are looking into getting a new android phone, but cant decide which one to get, i am heavily into rooting and android SDK tomfoolery, which phone is best for such matters? i am currently leaning into waiting to pick up a droid bionic when it is released, any thoughts??

    If you're leaning for the Droid Bionic, you're obviously not wanting any current gen phone. Waiting seems like your better option. Coming off a Droid, I'd want one with a QWERTY keyboard, but that's just me.

    I won't presume to know what Droid best suits you, but here are some questions I think you should ask before making the decision:

    1. Do you live in a 4G city?
    2. If not, do you live in a city that is slated to get 4G in the near future? (Here is a list of Verizon's initial 2011 cities)

    If your answer to either of those is no, I'd personally hold off on a 4G phone.

    Of the remaining Android options, I'd suggest the Droid X or, if you like the physical keyboard, I still think the Droid 1 is the best option. The development community has done (and continues to do) more for the Droid 1 than for any other device. Plus the locked bootloaders of the Droid 2 and Droid 2 Global are a step backward, and the battery life of the D2G is atrocious (I have used both the D1 and the D2G extensively and I definitely prefer the D1)

    If you are into rooting DO NOT get a motorola device. All of their new devices have locked bootloaders which make rooting limited, if not possible at all. You will not have the same rooting freedom you have on a D1 if you buy a new motorola device. I highly suggest not getting a motorola anything. Just my opinion though. Take it as you may.

    Keep in mind, the above two perspectives are for pure android hackers that want the ultimate everything in hacking their phone. Both the DX and D2 have been rooted and roms are possible for either phone. You just don't have as many options. I'm sure the Bionic will have be rooted and rom'd within the month of its release.

    I agree about being wary of Motorola devices. Their locked, encrypted AND bobby-trapped bootloader os a problem - both from a practical standpoint (how do you defeat the lock) as well as from an ethical standpoint - why spend your money supporting Thugs and possible criminals?

    My advice is to go with the HTC Thunderbolt, getting a good phone and rewarding a company which does not engage in such dispicable activities.

    Right, don't support Moto! They are a bunch of criminals, lol. I am going HTC myself. Also remember moto does not make a good camera. If a camera is important to have on a phone than don't put your money on moto.

    I was not trying to be humerous, when I referred to Motorola as Thugs and possible criminals. Conspiracy to commit an act, while sometimes difficult to prove, *is* a crime. And laying booby-traps (efuses) to catch unwary people who mishandle rooting their Droid X is, in my opinion, a conspiracy on the part of Motorola.
