    I just purcahsed a DX at retail price and have about 7 days to decide if I want to return it. I love the phone and believed it was the best phone on VZW's network...this after owning the Thunderbolt and pretty much every android phone on Verizon. Now the DInc 2 comes out. I went and tried one out in the store and I really like its size and feel in the hand. I am running GB on the X and also hate the idea of going back to 2.2.


    Ughh I am torn, what is your opinion?

    I would not get the inc 2. Its a very disappointing upgrade over the first one. Its only running froyo same processor as first one and no lte. the only noticeable upgrades to it are the screen is a bit bigger and the front facing camera. If u really need the extra camera and of course the unlocked bootloader then go with it. Even though I would prefer the thunderbolt.

    I'd just stick with the Droid X in my opinion. Though to be perfectly honest, I'd wait it out for the Droid X2. Should be coming this May.

    The DINC2 has a better processor than the first, and more RAM. It is essentially the same upgrade from an EVO4G to a Thunderbolt. Not a huge one, but both the DINC1 and the Evo were really successful and well received phones. I prefer the Thunderbolt to the X after having played with both, and I can imagine the only aspect of the X I'd prefer over the DINC2 would be the larger screen size

    it really depends on how much you would like to customize, because the dinc 2 has an unlocked bootloader

    Exchange it for the inc 2. HTC supports their flagship phones longer. Motorola locked the bootloader for a reason, they plan on using it to force people who want software upgrades to upgrade hardware too. It drives them insane that people are still using the droid 1.

    You will never have a new phone. There has been a new, better phone coming out next month for about 2 years now.

    Agree will get htc devices from now on or until a google open phone comes to verizon. Might look at galaxy 2 if it's not a stepchild like the fascinate is.

    Of course. Im only saying hold out for the X2 because it's literally right around the corner, so why not get an upgraded version of his phone if given the opportunity.

    I'd also like to point out the Inc2 is pretty locked down. So we'll have to wait and see how far HTC took it this time.

    The X² is just a code name in bestbuys computers for a different version of the x that comes with a smaller 2gb SD card. Read up on this stuff people!

    That was a mistake. I thought the same thing, but there is a legit X² with qHD, dual core and all. Just no 4G.
