    Is the thunderbolt really that bad? I hear horror stories about it's battery life. Maybe the thunderbolt should have been named the charge...

    I upgraded to a X2 from the droid 1. At first I didnt like it. It felt too big, it was laggy, picture gallery took forever to load. But I got used to its size pretty quick and the new update fixed all the problems I was having with it. I was really looking into getting the bionic when it comes out .... but now have decided to keep the DX2
    I really liked my droid 1. It just needed more internal memory for me. So I think the Droid 3 would be a great choice right now.
    But for me now I think it would be hard to switch back to a smaller screen after using this X2.

    thanks dubie220 for the feedback on DX2:
    -the screen is a big jump from the D1
    -the sound/speaker on D1 is very good apparently

    X2 screen is a source is complaint. Display is pixelated. Blur is way behind Sense. I would wait to see what comes out in the next month or 2. Dual core, 4G and front camera are the standard now.

    Have you tried updating your original Droid? Root, flash a custom ROM, and then overclock. It's been done so much that most of the stuff is very mature, very reliable, and there are a lot of tutorials on how to get though it.
    You're actually at an advantage with an older phone- people know that Droid inside and out.

    That $50 New Every Two shouldn't be burning a hole in your pocket. You don't *have* to be on a contract, once the contract is fulfilled.
    I have NE2 credit that's about 3 years old.
    I got a Droid from a friend for $50 and hot-rodded it, then put it on my Verizon line. It was quite an upgrade for me- first smartphone.
