    Im stuck in this decision.I have the droid x and great phone!, but the fascinate will be here on the eighth and I was always waiting for the fascinate but grabbed the droid x because didn't have release date on the fascinate so now that it's just about here, and I'm still in my 30 days should I go for it?,or should I stay with the x? Would like help in deciding.

    I would stay with the x and save your 40 dollars. its really not that big of a leap. personally I know its like you buy something and something comes out later that you wanted. in the end everything pretty muh do the same thing with a exception of a few tweaks to the OS. hopefully someone soon will break the kernal on the droid x and we will have some real custom roms built for the DX.

    Sapphire has been booted on the X...and the kernel will probably be worked around by loading it in after the bootloader initiates. All in all within a month we will have full custom ROM and kernel.

    Why do you want the Fascinate? Then compare that to what you have on the X...

    Have you had the opportunity to go in and play with the Samsung unit to see how it compares and reacts in your hand...

    My choice would be the X but only you know which phone would be the best fit for you...

    I wish people would quit talking about this. Those were rumors and google shot them down... I mean they got 2.2 running on the G1 and it's specs were horrible...

    If you do get a chance to put them side by side - it would be great to hear back on your thoughts...

    The GPU in hummingbird is faster than the GPU in the TI processors in DX. For 99% of the apps that extra GPU speed might not mean anything at all, but it should result in better 3D gaming. People describe the super amoled screen as being "vibrant". It actually oversaturates colors to an unnatural level. That's not good.

    My bad, I didn't read that. Still, 384MB is a little low.

    I owned the Samsung i910 & the i920 Omnia's.....
    NEVER again.
    I would change the last to letters of Samsung to "CK"

    IMHO

    The samsung screen is more vivid on colors, and the processor is the best with gaming, the X has a much better build quality, battery life, memory meaning RAM and internal storage for apps. Im still within my 30 day period as well, but im sticking with the X.

    If gaming is your primary concern then def the Fascinate. But funny thing I compared the tmobile versin you tube against my x an oddly enough. My X was richer... go figure. With Froyo coming I heard it make rendering on the X smoother

    Hmmm u didnt like the Omnia 2? I feel your pain with the Omnia 1. lol I was so pissed with it I didnt even look twice at the 2. I should thank it tho cuz it scared me so bad with touchscreens it drove me into the arms of the Droid 1. I just knew I needed a slide out keyboard with a touchscreen.

    Between the X and Fascinate? Its hard to say. U have Amoled vs. LCD. Each has pros n cons. I personally like LCD.

    After that its up in the air...lol

    samsung for gaming and lighter phone, but less storage. moto for more storage and sturdier built but not as fast in 3d processing dept.

    I also had an Omnia, and also never looked at the Omnia 2. It was my last WinMo phone because I went from it to the Droid then to the X.

    With the Fascinate is it going to have battery issues with the amoled screen? The DX is hands down the best phone I've ever had and as a Motorola fanboy, I'll never go to another brand.
