I have an original Droid that I'm happy with but with all the new offerings out there I am in the market for a new phone since I have a new every 2 burning a hole in my pocket and a $50 coupon towards the purchase of a smartphone that expires in 12 days.
My 2 choices are the DroidX or the Samsung Fascinate and I'm really torn about which one to get. I'm aware of the physical differences between the 2 (bigger screen on the DX, higher display quality on the Fascinate etc.......) and also know about the search differences. I would prefer Google but could probably live with Bing.
I prefer the software of the DX but I'm not sure about it's size. To me it feels just a little too big while the Fascinate really feels great in my hand and has a real polished/finished look to it. The camera on the Fascinate is also much faster than the Droid which is a plus.
One other thing to factor in is that my wife could use (but does not need) a new phone and if I go with the Fascinate I can get a free phone( she just wants a dumb phone) for her too saving me between $50-100.
My third option is to just keep using my droid and sit on my new every 2 to see whats coming down the line in the future. I'll just lose my $50 in store coupon.
If you had to choose between these 2 phones which would you choose and why? I can get either for $50 after all rebates so price is not a consideration
Thanks for the input.
