    This comes from Khabrein.info, who says everyone (not only their readers) are classifying the Droid X and Droid 2 over the iPhone 4. Now if we would have said something like that, you guys would agree but others might call us biased. The good thing about this all is... It does not matter, just good to know. I mean we do not get anything out of knowing we are better than someone else, except if your in an argument with that annoying friend that likes to think his phone is better, then now you can put him in his place.

    I have the Droid X (and are still working on my 1 month later thoughts and review) and I would have to say I am not the biggest fan. I mean I had an HD2 just last week, and the Droid X was much bigger than it, and the build quality was not my favorite relative to the HD2, but talking software... Its unmatched. I mean what can beat Android right now? Blackberry (no, why the torch has a new software that still is not selling much), Windows Mobile (haha, funny), iPhone (well this article says otherwise). The only thing that might be a treat would be Windows Phone 7, but we have a month to found out it there is anything behind this Microsoft made software.

    Reply and tell us you agree, or disagree (if that is how you truly feel).

    Minus the locked bootloader, I am loving the droid 2. It has the same software that the dx with the feel of my d1.

    I went from Palm Treo to Iphone 3g (returned that for a phone with a keyboard) to HTC Tilt, to Iphone 3gs, to Droid, and now a droid 2. My next phone either need to be a super phone and/or must have an unlocked bootloader.

    I used to own an iPhone 3GS, played with an iPhone 4 and my original Droid is still above any iPhone. I NEVER get bored of my phone, and the iPhone turned into just another phone. Sure you can have a poopload of applications, but what fun are applications when you can't even do diddly squat messing around with the phone. I mean jailbreaking was cool and everything, but nothing compared to rooting.

    I had a Motorola Droid and just switched an iPhone 4 and so far I like ios4.1 much better than android so far. Only thing I miss are widgets, and holding the screen to pull up the menu.

    par for the course

    Those two phones are heavy weights. Does one beat the other? Hardly. You see, it comes down to user pref. The form factor might mean something to someone, and be completely different to some one else. For the record, I think apple should die. That is just my opinion. I won't dare say I think there is a device better than both of those here....this is a moto verizon forum.....understood:icon_ banana:

    My Droid just died last weekend. I was putting off getting a DX but thanks to my Best Buy replacement plan it looks like I'm joining the club. I'm a little bit anxious, I admit. I want to see what the other side of the fence is like!

    Yep, I agree that the iphone is nothing more than a pimped out nokia from three years ago. (Yeah I know a bit harsh, but still true). I have seen and heard from so many people that have the phone that doesn't even have mediocre reception and drops calls to the point that they can't even finish a conversation. The droid 2 processing speed, apps, and ability to multitask is enough reason to declare both of these droids victorious. Droid 2 makes the iphone look like those little cheap inexpensive electronic games with the double A batteries you buy at walmart for kids to play with so they'll have something to do on a long car drive while on vacation.

    Your wrong on so many levels. The retina display is superior. iPhone wins. Apps. iPhone wins. Smooth as butter OS, iPhone wins. Droid wins the rest, and in my book....it comes down to personal pref...

    I agree that it comes down to preference. That's why I prefer the brillance of thr droid 2 over any phone that comes from AT&T. I know because I'd been there for over six years. And as far as apps, iphone has leved off where with the droids the sky is the limit. So, how many phone calls did your precious iphone drop today? Good luck with that.

    I don't think you've ever used an iPhone, you just come off as a blind fanboy. I've used the droid extensively and the iPhone for like a week. Both have their pros and cons, but I'll stick with the iPhone since att has comparable coverage and I happen to like the iPhone better as a phone.

    Actually I have akj27 so don't assume you know what I've done and what devices I have used. Did you not read the post saying that I dealt with at&t for over six years, and trust that is only because the small college town where I went to undergraduate and graduate school only had that company in that area. Also do not think that I have not used an iphone before, well I have and it bored the hell out of me. So next time you wanna lay down a few, quirky, and not so witty quips about someone, maybe you should post a comment thats more relevant to the topic and not about you're ode to a a device that most people wont remember in three... two...

    It isn't a clearcut case of win or lose to me at all. So far for whatever reason, none of the non apple MFG's have ventured to make a phone that flat out compares with the Iphone 4. I think the Iphone4 form factor is PERFECT, the screen is massively superior to every other screen. ATT is terrible, and I don't like apple style lockdown. If it was available on verizon I would very very strongly consider it. The unit itself is just so beautiful. Fix that ridiculous reception issue..and it is nice gear.

    However I would not even once connect that thing to my computer using I tunes. It would have to be hacked. I'm tired of having to void warranties in order to actually use my phone properly.

    That said, the freedom of android and the way way better verizon network in my area really leaves me with no choice at all. I like android phones better, but so far, the Iphone4 wins for the physical device in my book. I want to see a motorola device compete really head to head with the Iphone4 and beat it on every spec. Processor, battery life, match its screen, same physical size and lighter weight. Do it. Or come close.

    I like the ability to remove my battery thanks, I'll stick with android on this one but do agree the new I phone has a very nice screen and doesn't look like a child's toy anymore. Its funny though, my parents just bought my 6 year old brother and I pod touch to play games on lol.

    Too bad about the Ipod touch that is an outgoing model waiting for its revision.

    The non removable battery on the Iphone is a huge negative in that design, I forgot to mention that. Still, its slick and I'd like to see it actually beat. The X doesnt compete head on being twice the size, the D2 doesn't compete head on because it has a keyboard. The incredible is the closest thing but that is aging pretty quickly with its poor battery performance and all that.

    Coming from the Droid, which I loved, the Droid X is my perfect phone. And I'm seeing great performance improvements since Froyo. No question, I'd never switch away from Android now.
