    I have an upgrade due and I was wondering which of the three would be the best choice if any over my Original Droid? Any thoughts on which are better would be great!

    This is a matter of personal preference, go into a VZW store that has working models and find out what works best for you

    You need to tell us what is important in a phone to you. What you plan to use the phone for other than every day stuff (ex. "I really enjoy watching movies on my phone"). Do you need a physical keyboard? Sense or blur? Seriously, what I would do instead of asking the internet is go down to your local verizon store (if possible) and play with all three. You will get a feel for how smooth the phone is, things like how well the keyboard works, how the build quality us, etc.

    Even if you make a choice that doesn't float your boat you got 30 days to bring it back don't forget. Of course they will try to charge you a 35.00 restocking charge but I've heard that you can talk them out of applying it.

    Keyboard - Droid 2

    No keyboard large screen - X

    Not really a Droid but still a nice android phone - Incredible

    Thanks guys, I know it's my call, but I hate going to my Verizon store because every one there is incompetent. Dealing with them is like pulling a tooth.

    I've had the original droid, then the incredible, and now the X. I love the X because of the big screen. One of the biggest points for me was the 8gb of internal memory. On the X and i'm pretty sure the droid 2, the 8gb is used for installation of apps. You have 8gb to install apps on. On the incredible, it has 8gb internal memory but it is used as storage much like the micro sd card. Cant store apps there. I know with 2.2 you have apps to sd but a lot of apps don't support that yet and it's nice to not have to even worry about it.

    I just walk in and if they ask if I need help, which they really don't anymore...I say, no thanks (I have spent a lot of time there just looking, with the release of these new devices)

    If you're in no great rush, hold off until the holiday season. Should be a lot of new phones out by then - including the Droid Pro. Might be worth the wait. My $0.02

    Seems like the X, D2, and Galaxy S phones are the only Android phones to get dedicated app storage right. I was surprised when I heard the Incredible had 8GB of internal memory but you couldn't store apps on it.
