    Okay so I'm getting a new phone soon becuase my two-year contract is up. I want one of these phones but dont know what to get? I have never had a smart phone but I want to try one. Pretty much the biggest thing I am worried about is the battery life. I text a lot throughout the day and call occasionally. I will also use browser for facebook every now and then. The most i will do is text. Somebody help me out here. I wanna know which battery will last longer if i text a lot in a day. Thanks!

    Honestly dude, either one...depending on how you set it up....plus you can buy an extended battery.

    Dont buy a phone based sorely on which might hold a charge longer.

    Personal opinion? X all the way. I don't need a physical keyboard so the screen real estate and capabilities of the x totally do it for me.

    But does the size of the X ever bug you?

    Well I have a Droid 2, but for me that's one of the biggest selling points. I've got big hands and fat fingers. That's why its a personal preference thing.

    The X seems pretty small after a while, but make sure your pockets can handle it. And if you are going into smartphones, consider waiting for the 4g dual cores.

    That's true. The thunderbolt should be out in no longer than 2 weeks.

    The Pro and X have (I believe, anyways) the same capabilities as far as hardware. If wrong, correct me.

    I use the Pro because of the physical keyboard. IMO, the only difference is screen size and keyboard. I despise all touchscreen keyboards, and I prefer smaller phones.

    Maybe you feel differently.

    I love my X. Biggies for me are the bigger screen and I dont personally want a physical keyboard.
