    Is it worth it really?

    Seems like right many people are having problems with the X2. Everything from lagging, rebooting, freezing, resetting and not liking the pentile screen display.

    Other than the fast processor, is it really worth all that? I'm on my second Droid X. I purchased my first one on April 30th, they sent me a new one (not refurbished) and its working great. Clear sound and videos now. I thought about taking this in for the X2 since I'm under the the 14 day policy return again. After reading about all the bugs with the X2 I think I will stay put with My X. I figure once I get the OTA update, I will be good to go anyway. If I am correct the X will get the update before the X2, so thats a plus I guess.

    My opinion:

    With a little tweaking, it's the best phone on verizons line up.

    The display is gorgeous, you can nit pick any display about color this and pixel that. There's no such thing as a perfect display.

    Maybe there are one or two lemon phones out there, but I didn't get one.

    In my experience 80% of the time it's something the user did, not the hardware/software that's to blame.

    Don't mean to preach but I just am loving this thing, don't know what else to say.

    Only down side is Gingerbread will be hard to wait for.

    What is pentile display anyway? Did you have the X before? I am coming from an Original Droid but I've had the X for about 3 weeks now minus the one I sent back. So when I saw the X I thought "OMG" I loved it!!! I am all for speed with the fast processor but because I've had to return the X once already, I'm sort of hesitant about getting the X2 for fear of bugs etc. Verizon tried to really give me a hard time with returning the X. They tried to send me a refurbished phone after having a new Droid X right out of the box for only two and half weeks.

    Pentile display is just the type of digitizer matrix configuration http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PenTile%20matrix%20family like anything it has advantages and disadvantages.

    I actually came from the original droid right to the x 2, I'm just absolutely loving it. well it may not be 1000 percent better than the original x, it is definitely an improvement.

    My main gripe is how everyone keeps dissing on it. Maybe right out of the box it's not the best experience in the world but what is? I spent about an hour doing a little bit it's tweaking, freezing bloatware and now hands down its the best phone I've ever had.

    Just my .02

    EDIT: basically pentile display uses about half the power of a lcd, gives a brighter picture, with barely perceptible loss of quality. I'll take the better battery life thank you very much. :-)

    i like mine alot. i got it yesterday and have been on it almost every min for the past day. battery seems pretty good for how much i have been using it.

    i have had a few issues but very small. the backround goes black when i use live backrounds... thats pretty much all ive seen so far.

    no reboots no freezes. havent seen much lag.

    i think it depends on what you are coming from. im coming from a old flip phone so this is awesome. maybe coming from a DX1 it might not be worth it.

    but i think its gonna be top dog for awhile. VERY HAPPY
