Have a droid x, still within 14 day return, worth it to get a thunderbolt?

    Currently, I have a droid x rooted and apexed, all ready to go, but the thunderbolt just looks so tempting, should I give it a try? seeing as rooting and roms aren't widely available yet, does that change anything? or will the thunderbolt live up to droid x's reputation? especially with an unlocked bootloader.

    I would suggest going to a verizon store and playing with a thunderbolt to judge for yourself. I had the X and liked it but I have the Thunderbolt now and love it. I don't think it will be too much longer before it is cracked wide open for tons of ROMs.

    In my opinion It's a no brainer. Stock Tbolt is better than root/rom X.

    Rooting is available as are ROMS. The Dev community is working hard on the TB. We had full root within 3 days after release. I came from the DX, TB all the way for me. Very much worth it. And I loved my DX.

    They dont compare man. The TB is screaming even compared to the X. Plus this phone appears like its really going to get some major dev support for it.

    The droid x's reputation? Of having a locked bootloader? no...no it wont.

    I would simply because the X is close to its EOL date (March 31). You'll be stuck into an obsolete phone for 2 years... up to you though.

    I have a DX, and absolutely love it...but I got it when it came out. To be buying a DX this far down the road is a bad choice. The DX2 is around the corner along with a plethora of other devices.

    Go buy a t-bolt and get the most up to date technology, I'd be doing you wrong if I advised you to do otherwise.

    I would, just because a ton of devs have purchased the phone. I feel left behind being stuck with a droid x lol
