    Just got a droid x and found out the x2 came out. Should I bite the 35 dollar exchange fee and swap?

    Yes. Its only 35 dollars for a much better device.

    +1. Not worth a normal upgrade, but for $35, you buy yourself another year, at least.

    Are there any drawbacks to the x2 or is it just a better x?

    The only drawback I can think of....and this is a big MAYBE....is the screen. Going into technicalities it MIGHT NOT be as sharp as the DX1's. There are folks that went from a DX1 to a DX2. There are some differences of opinions about the screen. Off the top of my head, thats the only drawback I can think of.

    If I was in your shoes I would take the restocking fee hit and get the DX2.

    No custom ROMs for the DX2 (yet) is probably the biggest drawback if you're rooted...one hopes/assumes they will appear...

    I say swap it out and root! The dual core is definitely worth $35 and the screen looks great to me.

    Is it worth $85 in your opinion? I thought about swapping my Droid X ( I just purchased a week in a half ago) and get the Droid X2. I would have to pay the $35 restocking fee, plus the difference of the Droid X2 which is $50. I already received my rebate check. So I would owe the $50.00

    Hmmmm.... Decisions..Decisions... I am hearing some complain about the screen display being pentile? Lagging? rebooting?

    If you do decide to keep the X1, you can root it and get Gingerbread today. The X1 with GB is soooo smooth and quick. Just some food for thought!

    Awesome! I think I will just keep my new DX. A part fromt the faster processor I am hearing right many people complainig about bugs, lagging and rebooting with the X2 and some have even taken them back.
