    Naw, what matters to me is better call quality and reception than the Droid and Inc. One review already said it handled a call where the Inc dropped it........:frown:

    ;)

    I already know the Droid has excellent reception. If the X has better?!?!?!

    Diversity Antennas ftw.....noise cancellation mics ftw.....3 different mics ftw.......

    ^^^ where I live my inc has the same signal strength as my droid did and the due to the way i hold my phone (slightly away from my head as to not get sweat and stuff on the phone) the droids noise canceling would always cancel my voice so my wife would constantly be telling me "put your phone up to your head I cant hear you" not an issue with the inc. so for ME anyways, no noise canceling = win

    I would think 2.2 (w/ JIT) would solve the lag issues, but who knows. I have a hard time believing that the lag is at all related to the new OMAP 3630 cpu.

    Darkseider, do you have any links that talk specifically about the Droid X having a signed bootloader? I know that Motorola chose to do that with the Milestone, but it seems like it was a conscious decision not to do it with the Droid. I have read speculation about this happening with future Motorola phones, but I never saw any real evidence stating that Moto planned to do that with the X.

    Key phrases there. Where I work, is a bad reception area. I need a phone that has excellent reception. I dont think holding any of these smartphones directly/close to your face is ideal. I learned the hard way with the Omnia 1 a few years ago.

    And to yall talking about rooting about the bootloader: One of the most unhackable machines known to man, the PS3, was finally opened up earlier this year or late last year.

    I dont know when it will happen for the X, but: "Where theres a will, there's a way...."

    Ask and you shall receive.

    Motorola Droid X system dump available; hackers already hard at it | Android Central

    Second or third response after my initial post.

    Mannnnnn, that kind of ruined my day. I was hoping that was just speculation. Thanks for the quick response.




    Bleh.

    *I did just read that the Milestone was finally cracked despite the bootloader, but it's far from guaranteed that the X will follow suit.

    Motorola knows how to lock down a device when they want to... case in point, the Milestone.

    let's hope the X is more hackable, but with wifi tethering a possibility out of the box, i highly doubt it

    I've never understood why the stock launchers are so choppy. Even the Eris has a much smoother launcher than the Droid, despite being far less powerful. Google needs to hire Fede (the dev behind launcherpro) and get him to recode their stock launchers ASAP.

    I wish one of these tech blogs with an X would slap LauncherPro or ADW on there and see if there is still any lag. If an Eris (with Sense) can run smoothly when swiping through homescreens and the menu, there is no reason why the X can't. It HAS to be related to stock Android OR whatever Motorola is calling their new skin that is on the X.

    If it is just the launcher, like u said. that might can be fixed with Launcher Pro, ADW, ZEAM, etc, if Blur will allow other launchers or will play nice if it does allow other launchers.

    If scrolling in the Settings is slow, choppy too...thats not good. So we have to give HTC credit for doing something good: Sense UI.

    Sorry to rain on your parade so to speak. There is still hope that it can be rooted proper. Unfortunately if the Droid X, Droid 2 and Droid Pro are locked down tight looks like I may very well leave the VZW camp if the rumored dual core HTC Vision on T-Mobile is rootable. For me it is about the ability to fully control my hardware and software over carrier. If someone feels the need, in this case Motorola, to lock down a device that over a 2 year contract I will be paying over $199 + $2300 for (service included) I see no need to give VZW or Motorola any of my money. Hopefully people speak up with their wallets to show disapproval instead of just going with the flow. That's the only way any corporation will listen.

    Well Gizmodo featured an article yesterday about ADW so maybe they will do that in their review to see if the lag is just related to the stock launcher.
