    I was thinking about getting a Droid X this week and just wanted to get some opinions on what I should do?

    Should I buy the DX? Or, waiit until the next round of phones is released? If you have a DX, are you extremely satisfied with it?

    Thanks,
    Nate

    i bought one as my first smart phone after playing with some of my friends phones, definitely like it and i'm pretty happy with my decision...when the next round comes out you might be thinking the same thing you are now, to wait again, so i'd say go to verizon and play with one, if you like it, get it!

    My opinion is to get it now. I just got my X last Thursday and I have to admit that's it's the best phone I ever own. Especially after rooting it! I'm with Verizon and my contract was actually up in July for a new phone. I thought of the same thing of waiting it out but I know that 4G is not going to come anytime soon. By the time it does come out, I'll be eligible for another new phone from them. This X will hold for a while.

    I'm eligible to upgrade at the end of this month. Consequently, I think my decision (to wait or get a DX) will be easier, as we should get a better picture of what VZW will release before year end. While it's true that there will always be a bigger, badder Droid, the fact that the release of the bigger, badder Droid is likely imminent may make it worth waiting for. Personally, I'd like to have my phone for at least a few months, before I'm made jealous of the phone that just came out.

    I HATE when that happens. LOL. Mine was Storm --> Droid --> Droid X. Hopefully another phone doesn't come out to make this one look dated.

    I would wait. The DX is an awesome phone and I love it. But newer devices will be rolling out in the coming months that you might like better. Then again, nothing Ive seen sports a 4.3" screen so If you want a big screen go with the X now. Heres the roadmap from Verizon that has all of the upcoming devices.

    None of those offerings mind blowing. The HTC Lexikon looks to be little more than a D2 with Sense, and the Motorola Venus is expected to look like a BlackBerry. Quite honestly, if I wanted a phone with the same screen real estate and qwerty keyboard as a BB Tour or Curve, I'd simply buy a BB Tour or Curve.

    I won't be shocked if something more exciting is announced between now and month end. Manufacturers like to have something new to push for the holidays. However, if the road map stays as is, DX here I come.

    Id go and just get the DX. Had iphones and then an eris and the D2. Now have the DX and there is no looking back. Gave my D2 to my daughter and even she likes my DX better than her D2.

    I had the D2 and used my 30 day trial on it and went with a DX instead, best decision I made, the DX ROCKS, it is a awesome phone and I won't mind waiting 2 years for another upgrade.

    On the flip side... given the history of one-upsmanship in the Android universe, you could argue the fact that no one has topped the DX for months, means a superior device is imminent.

    True and given that history waiting will yield only a slightly better phone until the Duo Cores are about to hit and that's not for 6 more months and DX will still be at or near the top of the heap.

    I had the same question as you so I went to YouTube and researched as many demos as there were. I switched from the my BB Storm to the DX and had 2 days of bliss. Now the darn thing freezes every two minur=tes and even a battery pull doesn't help it anymore. I'm real disappointed..great phone when it worked.

    I love my X...and for the next 18 months I'm sure I'll be happy. Then I'll upgrade again like I always do.

    I suspect you're correct and I suspect I'll wind up with a DX.

    I too am coming from an S2. Hopefully you just have a bad phone (as Storm owners, we know how that goes). Or perhaps the coming Motorola patch for the 2.2 upgrade will help.

    I would with out a doubt wait. The X had alot of problems with it and motoblur slows the crap out of it. The droid pro which details recently released show it having a 1.3 ghz processor, should be out in november in time for christmas the rush (My Guess). and i bet HTC has something up there sleeve that they are getting ready to release around the same time. just remember your stuck with your decision for 2 years and u dont want to get the X and then in 2 months want to kick yourself in the butt for not wait. but thats just my opinion! :)

    If HTC hasn't announced anything by now then its not coming. The only thing that has been seen is the lexicon.
