    New phone over next few weeks

    In march I bought a droid x through costco with the intent on exchanging it through their 90 day return policy. Therefore, I need to get a new phone over the next 2 or so weeks. My droid x was my first android device and I kept it stock, with my next phone I am definitely going to root/use a custom rom. I am unsure which phone I should buy.

    Regarding 4g phones, the thunderbolt is not available, the charge feels cheap/looks ugly and is apparently slow, and the revolution which should arrive on thursday but the camera is only 5MP and I really enjoy the photo quality from my DX.

    This leaves me with the droid x2 and the incredible 2. What I want to know is how does the dual core in the droid x2 compare to the extra ram in the incredible 2 for real world performance, is the battery life similar and does blur vs sense matter at all if I root?

    Otherwise its a shootout between a nicer screen and a smaller phone with a front facing camera.

    Well if your looking for more custom things to do to a phone after root then def need to go with the dx2 for sure or keep the 1 you got either way....the dinc doesn't have near the themes and rom choices as the dx and the dx2 will have in the future

    Blame the figures not me!!!

    This is what rooting is right here

    Really? I thought HTC phones are more open and will the droid x roms work for the x2?

    As far as i know, the Incredible 2 hasn't even gained root access yet. The DX2 was rooted within hours.

    And no, i don't think X Roms will work on the X2, but i am patiently waiting & hoping it gets some support!

    To add even more options, the thunderbolt is available, which I like the feel of. I am now considering this alongside the droid x2 in place of the incredible 2. Has anyone had both of these phones to compare overall performance especially of extra ram+4g vs dual core. Also, under normal use will the thunderbolt easily last a full day and is it difficult to get swype on it?
