    I had a DX (which I loved) and upgraded to a Thunderbolt (hate, hate, hate this phone!). I had the original moto droid and like I said DX & I believe it's motorola for me all the way, but my question is which phone to get next? I honestly don't know the difference between the DX & the DX2 & now I'm reading about the bionic & D3. 4G isn't a big deal to me since it won't be in my area for at least another year. Can someone help me simplify this please?

    If you won't be getting 4G for a while, I would try the Droid 3.
    It has a great 5 row keyboard, and looks awesome.

    It doesn't have 4G, but that won't matter to you for a while.

    1. Bionic
    2. D3
    3. DX2

    However if you care more about a keyboard, then put the D3 on top. Either way, I'd put the DX2 on the bottom...it may have a dual core and qHD screen, but its a pentile screen and its still running a [super buggy] Froyo version Blur. If you already had a DX, its not really worth the jump that much.

    I too am having trouble choosing between the D3 and the Bionic. I love my Droid2 but really want a front facing camera to talk with my family and friends. AND i MUST have a keyboard.

    Can SOMEONE PLEEEEASE :) confirm for me: Does the Bionic have a keyboard? I am SURE its somewhere over this forum board, but I see people saying yes AND no. AND Im at work and just spent 45 minutes surfing this board and getting sidetracked!! :) Thank you! :heart:

    Does the Bionic have a keyboard? It has a software touch keyboard like all smartphones nowadays but no, it doesn't have a nice slide out keyboard. You'll need the Droid 3 to get that.

    Which I ordered this morning!!!@#!@# :D :D

    Ahhh thank you both very much! I have used my Swype and touchscreen, but I still prefer laying back in bed, sliding out my Qwerty and emailing and texting away. Just my personal preference. Decision made, D3 is for me.

    Im jealous Maverick! My Droid 2 has already crapped out on me and there's no way my parents will pay full price for a new phone for me! Plus my mom got the X2 and I've got something to compete with now Dx! Be sure to tell me how it is. :)

    The d3 does have a front cam.
    Bionic is supposed to as well.
    d3 has the keyboard she wants as well so those two items point her to the D3.

    TB has a front cam, it's only good for taking crappy pictures tho. I do like the 4G when I'm in 4G areas and hate the slideout keyboard. I'm getting a bionic! Thanks for the help everyone!

    I still love 3G, I think 4G still need to grow up, maybe a few years later when I replace my mobilephone, I will choose 4G
