    Hi Everybody!

    Convince me to buy a droid X now instead of waiting for the 'fascinate/Galaxy S' to become available on Verizon. :icon_ banned:

    Is there some technical reason that the Droid X is superior? Better graphics processor or something? Is there some community-oriented reason (i.e. more developers will hack cool stuff on the X)?

    As far as I can tell, Both the Droid X and Galaxy S have solid processors/ram, big pretty screens, support external storage up to 32gb, both will get Froyo, both will be eligible for Gingerbread. Both are rooted. Neither have unlocked boot loaders.

    So in my mind, the Galaxy S wins because the super AMOLED screen is the latest and greatest. All other specs are pretty much the same as the X.

    Am I missing something?

    Cheers,
    -Justin

    Samsung Fascinate:

    * Got Bing!
    * Nobody knows when Fascinate is coming.
    * No notification LED

    Panoramic, DLNA, HDMI out (im not 100% on this one) gives X the advantage. I love my X and its size is just BEASTLY I love it. I wouldnt trade it for any other phone at the moment and I have some pet peeves about it with its damn volume and youtube not syncing issue

    Does the Galaxy also have 8GB internal storage? The X can have a combined 40GB of storage. I think the Droid X looks a little more handsome and the Galaxy is a little more iPhoneish looking. But the Galaxy may fit your hand better, who knows. I love the screen size of the X and wish they sold more this size. I use my phone more for data than for talking and viewing websites, emails and videos are just that much more pleasant.

    Nice, this is what I'm talking about. I don't know much about DLNA, but the HDMI out capability is pretty cool. Seems like I could find an excuse to use it :)

    Oh bummer! I heard that HTC Incredible is switching to LCD because Samsung is bogarting all the AMOLED screens for themselves. I didn't know the shortage issue extended all the way to Samsung.

    i would just wait so you have something to compare to. i played with my friend's captivate (att version). the screen is something in between which i like. i don't mind the Dx size tho.

    fyi...the fascinate is will not be using super tft or lcd. it's using the super amoled not the regular amoled which is in short supply. samsung saved it's supply it itself. the super amoled is simply amazing. it blows my dinc amoled out the door.

    the galaxy s is not switching displays! it's their own displays for their own phones...why would they use something else.

    also, can someone verify that the galaxy s does not have an LED indicator? also, the tmobile version does not have a flash, any word on the verizon version?

    The verizon version will have flash. I think you have to wait until September to get it, since August is reserved for droid 2. By then gingerbread device might only be less than 2 months away. You can wait to see whether droid x receive froyo by mid August to decide.

    No, it's HTC that's switching to sLCD.

    Samsung is the manufacturer/supplier of AMOLED screens for HTC.
