    If the battery life isn't that great I might as well get the X lol jk. It looks like an awesome phone & I don't care if it has a front facing camera or not. I'll get a car charger so when I'm on the go I'll be able to still charge it so battery life won't be a big factor. My Blackberry's battery drains fast so I'm no stranger to that. I can't wait for this, November 23rd can't come soon enough!

    Since a lot of reviews are saying that the battery on this isn't the best, couldn't it be mitigated with the new Fast Boot thats in the new HTC Sense? What I'm saying is, when you aren't using the phone, shut it off, when you need the phone again, just turn it on, and since it has Fast Boot, it'll be up an running within seconds. Wouldn't this really help with battery life?

    I've been playing Angry Birds heavily on my DroidX lately because I've been sick and its helped pass the time. I've played easily 3 hours on my DX as well as other stuff in between and the battery is still going strong. That battery life is horrendous.

    ^^^nice signature image, I too was eagerly awaiting for the arrival of this phone but I recently got accepted to the RN program at school and now I wont be able to afford most of the luxuries like a smartphone monthly plan along with a few other sacrifices. Been thinking about going prepaid through Verizon, I wish this phone was usable on prepay like the Droid.

    this phone looks pretty sweet, but besides a bigger screen and more ram will it be much different than my incredible?

    this is a very good review

    Sounds like a nice, solid phone but not a "must have" phone.

    I am beginning to fear every iteration of an Android phone is becoming a "me too" phone as opposed to a real, unique knockout.

    I am still using a D1 and though I have quite a few months left on my contract, nothing is really wowing me or making me want to change other than the X and maybe the Fascinate.

    However, I anticipate a lot will change within the next 6 months.

    Huge disappointment...bad battery life , no HDMI port, no front facing camera, the camera lens on the back will get destroyed over time. I still going to stick with my Droid 1 until there is something better

    I read that the 2nd gen snapdragon was supposed to handle the battery life better. Also, it does have a frontfacing camera. Unless you slam your phone onto a flat surface the camera lens will be fine...

    Yeah, don't just totally disregard this phone because of a review... Engadget tends to point out a lot of negatives on non-Apple devices. Also, the camera has a slight bump on the outer edge to keep the phone off the lens.

    Ugh Apple. Just because a product doesn't have a fruit on the back of it doesn't mean it's bad. Speaking of fruits I'm guessing Engadget is Blackberry happy as well? :laugh: Really though I can't wait for someone like Phonedog to review this phone, they always do a great job. Either way I'm not letting one review make me not want this phone & it's not even out yet.

    Never read a review from Phonedog. Are they bias at all? Engadget is super bias. They gave the Desire HD a 7/10 and the iPhone 4 a 9/10 even though it's a got a friggin' antennae issue.
