    I just got the droid incredible a couple days ago and cant stand it and i am planning on returning it for the X. How is the battery life supposed to be on the X and also is Motorola software better than HTC? This is the first HTC phone i owned and cant stand how it is set up. Thanks

    1. Battery life is on par with the Moto Droid

    2. "Better" is subjective

    Proper tweaking + buying an after market slightly larger battery can make a huge difference. If you can't stand how it's setup as far as UI/software, though.....well...dunno what to tell you, Sense UI has kind of been the best Android and WinMo UI for a good while now, in most people's eyes :)

    Battery Life:

    • Moto Droid - Pretty bad
    • HTC Droid Inc - Really bad

    I went stock 2.1 because I may get the X and give the Droid to a family member, and right now, I don't have any complaints with battery life.

    All the reviewers have been happy with the X's battery life. It's a smartphone, so it's not going to last multiple days. "Good" smartphone battery life is getting you through a full day.

    I thought the battery on the Moto Droid was pretty good, The DInc. is a different story...

    Stock battery, Garbage
    Extended battery, good for a month... Then Garbage.

    I wonder if I will ever get 3-4 days of battery life on any phone again like I did with my BB 8830WE.

    On a side note, A very nice VZW Rep is extending the 30 day return policy on my Inc to 4 months.... Hello Droid X!

    And don't forget that Verizon will release a mega-battery for the DX that will provide about a quarter more power than the stock one (with a modified case cover) for those who need it.

    to get this mega battery, is it just an "accessory" that you will eventually have to buy? for like 50 bucks or something?

    I have no idea what the price will be, but yes, it will be available to purchase from Verizon.
