I have been lurking for the past 4 days reading every thread I can on these boards, about droid X. In addition I have spent the last few days mercilessly reading reviews both good and bad about the droid x.
I am very excited about DX, I want one I really do... My birthday is on Thursday and my gift is going to be a droid, and for a LONG time the droid that has been in my mind has been the X and I hope it still will be after this post.....This is why I am posting here in the droid X forum, not incredible because... well, I want to be convinced the X is better, not told otherwise.
However, I am dismayed, no not because of the bootloader issue (before a few days ago I didn't even know what that was) frankly as long as I can root the phone, and install free wireless tethering eventually i'll be happy. I am dismayed because there seems to be other issues with the phone, lagginess, poor pictures, not as good UI as sense etc...and now with incredible about to get 720p recording and wireless hotspot (on a phone that appears to already be rooted so I could immediatley get free wireless hotspot?? please confrm or deny) I am beginning to wonder if Droid X really is the best decision.
Yes I know its processor is faster, (but wil that really make a difference when Froyo comes out and everyones droid is super super fast anyway??) Not to mention I hear the X's UI is laggy anywhere to do itergrated MOTblur stuff?
What about the other bugs, Facebook Syncing not being customizable for example?
Guys I am at a impass, I don't know what to do.... Help me out once and for all, for my first droid next week what should I be getting, is the X really worth it, or would I be better off getting the Incred. already rootable so I can get that free wifi, and soon with 720p recording and what seems like less issues?
Is the droid X's speed increase really so noticeable that its better, and is the HDMI really that special that its a must have?
Thanks guys. Look forward to being on this board for a while.
