So here's my situation - I have a Droid X and my satisfaction with it just keeps declining. The battery life, compared to my Droid 1, is just pathetic (and I'm not using task killers). I'm on my second phone and it has the same issues. The Froyo update that just came out seems very buggy (I've had a lot of lock ups, music now skips). I would try a factory reset, but I got my replacement X the day Froyo released so it was at factory defaults when I installed Froyo. I'm just not really that thrilled with the device.
I'm considering switching to a Fascinate. I'm basically sold on the phone, I just have a few things I'd like to get some input on.
1 - How is the battery life? Does it make it through the day? Is there anyone here that switched from an X to a Fascinate and can compare?
2 - Is the GPS really THAT bad? I don't think I've read any good things about it.
3 - Does the Touchwiz skin drain battery life? I read someone else commenting that running Launcherpro would kill the battery because TW would be in the background; is this accurate or is Touchwiz disabled when you use a home replacement?
4 - One of the most appealing things about this phone is that it is apparently open. I was never one to install custom ROMs when I had my Droid 1, but the idea that in a month or so I may be able to install vanilla Froyo without all the extra crap appeals to me. Does anyone have any idea what kind of progress has been made on getting some ROMs out for this thing, and whether there will be a vanilla Froyo ROM made available?
Any input on the phone would be appreciated, especially from any former X users.
