    i know it is huge and high resolution. that is the only reason i'm entertaining the idea of getting an x instead of an incredible. i promised myself my next phone would have sense, but blur has some cool features and the x's screen is so big its hard to pass up for the tiny screen of the incredible.

    so, all other issues aside, does the x have a 'good' screen. i know its amazing, but good accuracy and such. MOTO touchscreen comparison recruits robotic implements for heightened precision (video) -- Engadget
    THIS is what i'm wondering about. the droid 1 was AWFUL, but is the x better? or is it more of motorola's bad screen software (whatever its called)?

    i'm leaning (against my VERY strong want for sense ui) to get the x because of the bigger screen, but if it has bad response its a little easier to pass up.

    so i dont see a test of the x, but is it pretty good at that ^ stuff?

    i'm looking for a test of the x similar to the one in my link, or someone who has had both (the droid 1 and droid x) and can tell me if they are similar (broken choppy lines or if the x has better straighter lines)

    but i'd love to hear you general feeling on it too :) anything to help me decide. when you press small buttons does it seem like its the one you want?


    thanks

    Screen responsiveness is great, at least I think so. I never like full touch screen phones because they were hard to text on and didn't respond well. I have had no problems at all with it.

    well yes, this technology of touch screen has great responsiveness. they are more expensive technology than say the lg ally or a phone with a touch screen that works from pressure. (but thanks for the reply)

    but i'm looking for a test of the x similar to the one in my link, or someone who has had both (the droid 1 and droid x) and can tell me if they are similar (broken choppy lines or if the x has better straighter lines)

    You'll love the screen. It's extremely responsive, as above posters have said. Scrolling through menus, messages, etc, is so smooth. And it's very accurate too. I've had an iPod Touch for years and always thought that the Touch's screen was smooth, but the X feels so much nicer than my iPod Touch.

    I will never go back to anything smaller than 4.3 screen size. Moto blur sucks.... Htc sense definitely way better, but I will not give up my 4.3 for sense..lol

    Screen response so-so

    I had 2 Droid X'S. At times both would not respond for about 1-2 seconds. Thats not all the time but it was common. Unless the 2 I had are different from everyone else. It was not as responsive as I was used too. Sometimes I would swipe it repeatedly to get it to move. I never had that happen with my iPhone so maybe thats why I always noticed it. It was a minor issue (to me) but I still like the Droid X. I also like having a HDMI port to use for slide shows and videos I made of the family.
    One of the reasons I needed another one was because of the "HOTSPOT" feature repeatedly shutting off. Long story short Motorola had me send it in.
    Is it worth buying? Yes.

    wow, that says a lot because apple products have the greatest touch screens on earth. it hard to pass it up then.

    moto blur is better than stock android but sense is just soo great. i think i agree that a 4.3 in screen is worth not having sense, especially with gingerbread coming out which is supposed to make android look nicer

    I thought I wanted sense too as I loved in in my olod TouchPro 2.

    Now, I have LauncherPro Plus installed in my new X & it is awesome.

    I have it set up with the sense type flip clock/weather etc & it works so well I wouldn't go back to sense at this point even if it was available.

    By the way, I also have an ipod touch & have loved it for a few years.

    I haven't touched it since I got the X however & will be selling it soon.

    i had an eris for a couple weeks, so i know i like sense. i especially like the stock sense apps and i think sense apps (browser) are faster. ya launcherpro plus is pretty good and i also have that clock. i also like sense because the apps are better and things like how the screen is more correct (that link..). i'm thinking i'll probably like blur enough, and itll be good with roms. so i'm leaning for the x. i just feel like my droids screen was worse than any other SMARTPHONE touch screen ive used. (not pressure touch screens)

    ya i sold my itouch when i got my droid, but the screen still is better, i just didnt need it since i never used it. (ipod's music app also KILLS the droids, they need to upgrade majorly (and yes, i've tried btunes))

    Yea, that's the one thing an iphone has over the x. The iphone screen is MUCH better in bright sun....

    The sun problem isn't too big of a deal.

    Now I have one last concern. 10 minutes ago I was positive the x was the best choice, I watched this video and I'm leaning very strongly to the incredible now. This video is absolutely ridiculous and very disturbing.

    I'm not sure what's going on with the X in that video but something is definitely not right.

    I have an X & the girl who works at the desk next to mine has an Incredible (she loves the smaller size). We have run the phones side by side in similar tests trying out different browsers etc & if one was faster than the other it certainly wasn't by very much. (nothing like it shows in this video)

    Do not discourage yourself away from the X because of this video, the X is actually faster than the incredible based on some hardware tests, so this is something with this X not all of them.

    I have the Droid X coming from the Droid and my wife has the Incredible.

    The Incredible is the Woman's Droid X. I say this because the X is huge and from the majority of women I have talked with they prefer the smaller screen but to still have similar functions. (8mp camera, 1ghz Processor etc.. You get the point.

    I never liked HTC from previous experience's having crappy phones but they have changed my opinion on that with the Incredible. It is a great phone but I would not take it over the Droid X.

    Side by side you will not be able to tell the difference switching between screens and loading apps, But the screen quality and size is night a day.

    The Droid X is very responsive and so is the Incredible, You can't go wrong with either. I was never a huge fan of all touch phones because I like the physical keyboard but the 4.3" screen makes it so easy I don't plan on going back.

    I'm in no way favoring the Droid X because I currently have one, To be honest If the X would not have released I would have most likely picked up the Incredible.

    It all comes down to personal preference, Go to Verizon and get your hands on both of them.:)

    ok, those make me feel better. if the x is really as fast then i'll probably get it. my only problem is that i always feel like i HAVE to have the bigger screen. but, the incredible has the optical trackball and stuff.

    and sometimes i feel like the x is low quality compared to the incredible.

    Sounds like your "heart set" on the Incredible? Don't think about it so hard and get it! If you don't like it then swap it for the X?

    I think with either phone you will be happy, I love the 4.3" screen and the X feels just as good in your hand as the D1 or Incredible. Also it is far from "Low Quality".:)
