    Hi, I currently have the Droid X and I just ordered the Droid 3. I use my phone for business and made the change for the keyboard because longer emails on the X became unbearable. I have had the X since it came out and love it. Can anyone give me any feedback or thoughts on your change from the X? I'm trying to get an idea of what to expect once the phone is delivered.

    Thanks in advance!

    Well, the D3 is faster, and the keyboard is awesome.
    Thats what you'll first notice.

    Also, the d3 UI is MUCH better than the X blur.

    Your are losing 0.3 inches of screen space but going from a 854x480 pixel display to a 960x540 one so the resolution will be better despite the physical screen being smaller. It'll be slightly thicker due to the physical keyboard. I think you'll find the keyboard nice for typing emails.

    I don't think you'll be missing a whole lot.

    I just got mines Friday and I really like it, the feel of the keyboard is awesome! I am using adw Launcher Ex for my home launcher which makes it even better! Hope you enjoy your phone.

    I had an X for quite a while. Rooted, modded, rommed, etc. Unfortunately my trusty X my its match against the dashboard of my pickup after a bad day at work and am argument with my girlfriend. Decided to upgrade to the 3 and its the best decision I've ever made. The only 2 quams I have with the phone are 1. Less than desireable battery life, and 2. (As of yet) no root access for modding. Which Im sure will change with time.

    Hell, just to have a keyboard again (had an OG before the X) was worth it to me. And a pretty awesome keyboard at that.

    Enjoy your new device

    Yeah, I didnt think I would even notice 0.3" of screen loss. I am actually looking forward to the shorter device.

    Great!

    Thanks, I hope I enjoy it too! Psyched for the keyboard.

    Thanks for the response. Based on the info I have read on this forum, everyone seems to enjoy the D3. I cant wait.

    And i get higher 3G speeds on my D3. On my X I was getting 1.5mbps and 689kbps. My D3 is getting 2.4 mbps and 1.1 mbps uploads.

    Might just be less people on 3G though.

    Its a little bit of a change going to a slide out Keybaord and a slightly thicker but its a good change. The screen is so so much better.
