    I am coming from an iPhone 4 and ATassT and I'm getting a droid.


    But I don't know which one to get.

    Tell me which one you bought. And why.

    Thanks! dancedroid

    Droid2 because of the physical keyboard and also I don't watch movies on my phone much so why buy a 4.3in screen?

    If you prefer a physical keyboard, go for the 2 which I have.
    If you stream a lot of crap like movies etc.., go for the X.

    We've had this come up many times before. Really another thread isn't necessary.

    Droid 2 vs droid x droid forums - Google Search

    If you want a physical keyboard then D2. Want a large screen, X.

    There's not much else to describe but you can take a look at all the threads already existing if you'd like.

    you have 30 days I suggest use it, try it both and see what u like. I too came from an iphone3gs. Both the DX and D2 runs the same basic operating system. The dx is larger and offers a hdmi to watch videos through tv. But the d2 is a more polished version of the operating system with a nice physical keyboard. You can have 10 people and all 10 may feel different. So go to vzw corporate store and play with them both and see what u like.

    Neither. They weren't available when I purchased.

    Rather than taking the shotgun approach and polling everyone else you should really post your needs/wants to allow us to make suggestions that are directly relevant to you. You can ask for opinions all day and not have a suitable answer for you if the people responding don't have needs/wants that are in line with your own.

    I chose the DX over the D2 mainly because of the screen... I don't watch a lot of content on mine either, but with the large screen, it kind of negates the need for a keyboard. I think I made the right choice.

    I'll have to agree with nc_biscuit. I had a D1, and now my wife has it. I went with the DX instead of the D2 since I found myself hardly using the hard keyboard on the D1 after I'd had it for a few months. The larger screen on the DX makes using the onscreen keyboard pretty nice.

    Only thing I miss about my D1 is all of the custom ROMS and kernels available due to the unlocked bootloader. :p

    While your at the store you should also look at the samsung fascinate. It's pretty sweet and best buy will have a white version for sale this weekend.
