    Why is DroidX better than my Droid 1?

    Hi all,

    I'm showing up late to the game, so I haven't read the hundreds of posts regarding the DroidX.

    Could anyone just give me the basics of why the DroidX is better than my Droid 1? I love my droid except for the slide-out keyboard but don't know if it's worth upgrading just for the "cool factor".

    Thanks all...

    to be honest jody that's something you'd have to figure out for yourself. the two main features that interest me are a larger screen and recording in hi def. the hardware aspects of it are tempting. you have 8 gigs of internal storage and i think 512 megs of system ram. the standard 16gig card. it's running at 1ghz where as your droid runs at 550 unless you have it overclocked. i've been running mine for months at 1.2 with no issues so, for me, the increased processor speed isn't a selling point.

    my boss just left and i got to mess with his some. it's nice. noticeably lighter than the droid and noticeably larger too, but it's not as awkward as you'd think the size would make it. there's not enough "extra" stuff for me to worry with trying to ditch my droid and get one. i have another upgrade i could use but i'd rather wait it out.

    really it just depends on you. if your phone is doing what you want it to do in a way that you're happy with than it's probably not worth the upgrade.

    At this point the only thing the Droid X has over the Droid is a larger screen. Due to the fact that it is locked down tighter than a drum and has an encrypted bootloader which means no ROMs I see no compelling reason to get one if you already have a Droid.
    OG Droid w/ Pete's GPA16 w/ stock Kernel using auto OC script. (retired)

    LG G2X w/ rooted 2.3.3 leak.

    It's OK for your Droid to be different. Just be supportive and reassuring and it will do just fine. It's when you or other people point at it or mock it for being different is when its' feelings get hurt. Just show it unconditional love regardless of its' differences and it will in turn reciprocate that love and loyalty.

    depending on your needs it may or may not be better.
    if you're somebody who is happy with a device that "just works" and dosent want to bother with tinkering with rooting and flashing custom ROM's then yes, the X is probably the better device.

    if you're a techno-geek that is always looking for ways to improve your devices then the original Droid is the better option.

    Having just bought one this morning, it's not necessarily better than the original. It does have a faster processor, more RAM and more megapixels though. However the Droid has a physical keyboard and will get updates faster etc and can be rooted so there is the possibility of uniques customizations. It's about the feature set you're looking for. If you buy an iPhone, you have one basic feature set and carrier. If you go Android, you have phones that come in all shapes and sizes with enough differences to fulfill user desires and the carrier of choice.

    I'd be interested to know how many current Droid owners (rooted and unrooted) would trade straight across for a DX.

    I wouldn't.

    Today?
    No.


    In a month or two when the hackers figure out a way around the locked bootloader?
    Yes.
