    My personal thought is that my old Droid incredible took way better pics than my X. But I kept blowing our speakers in my incredible and no problems with my X. I just miss the smaller size of the incredible.

    If you have grown to like the ability to flash custom Roms on your D1 you might not want to go with Motorola. Since the D1 they have locked the phones down. Roms on the X are just variations of the same same thing.

    HTC or Samsung Is the way to go if you like freedom.

    Keep in mind, HTC locks down their phones as well. They just haven't gone as far as locking the bootloader yet, but there's nothing potentially stopping them. Like any manufacturer, they have a responsibility to lock their devices down so that they conform to the carrier's demands.

    Anyway, if the Thunderbolt is essentially Verizon's EVO 4g, I have to say I'd pick the Droid X just on the look and feel. Motorola kinda drops the ball when it comes to software and timely updates, but their build quality is stunningly good. I compare my Droid X to a coworker's EVO and I just love the X more. Its thinner, has that nice rubberized texture, and I prefer physical buttons over touch capacitive ones. I also like how it has a 16x9 resolution, where the EVO is a 16x10, so you fill the whole screen when watching video without having any black bars on it.

    Again, it comes down to your own preference. Either way, I think you'll be satisfied.

    After CES is the consensus that the only benefit of the thunderbolt is that it will be 4G capable? Seems like thats the only real difference between that and the Droid X

    I guess the HTC thunderbolt 4g is a good portable video player ...

    does the Droid X has a front facing camera and the ability to Skype? what is the storage differences between the 2? is it true that the Thunderchicken has the ability to talk and surf at the same time even though its on the verizon network (read it somewhere) ?

    No the X does not have a front facing camera.

    The Thunderbolt does have front facing camera and the ability to skype. And yes you can talk and surf on it also at the same time. The new 4g network has this ability...

    I will be buying the Thunderbolt shortly to move past Motorola's locked bootloader policy and Blur.

    I have had my Droid X since November and I am on #5 Verizon is sending me a new Thunderbolt because of all the issues with my X. I do happen to think that Motorola products are the issue this is my second Moto phone and I have had issues with both. (I know that many love Moto phones, just saying I have not had good luck)

    They gave me the choice between T-bolt and Iphone4 But I love using the android and the 4.3 inch screen is huge for me as I am a Realtor and can show pics/video to clients when we are on the road.

    I would not recommend the X. I have loved it but the last few weeks its like I went into a tail spin of quality. And that should not happen at the 5 month mark of ownership.
