    I had a Moto Droid for almost 7 months. There were some major peeves I had with Moto's software that I thought was part of the Android OS. Apparently Moto's version of Froyo, at least IMHO, is very poor and buggy. I couldn't believe how much lag or slag the D2 had and how poor the interface still was (and ugly.) With few exceptions (such as putting the contacts list where HTC foolishly puts the useless widgets button in the dock), the HTC version of Froyo completely bests the Moto in every way. While I really miss the keyboard, I am so glad to have the Incredible and not the D2 or the X.

    One thing I really like about the Droid X is the larger screen. Other than that, I did choose to hang with my Incredible until my next upgrade. Until then, HTC Droid Incredible is rocking my world!

    I really don't see why anyone would like the Droid 1 with Froyo. My sister and my mom both have that phone, which I of course had to play with... And it was just overall... poor. The X however, I didn't get to play with, but when i looked at it... that's like having a small TV in your pocket. The girl I know who has it can't even put it in her pocket because it doesn't fit. I don't see why you would ever want that.... just carry a laptop around

    To me, the X and Inc and D1 are all the same thing only different. If you find one's software better/different than the other's, then you aren't using Android correctly. There's an app for that - use the apps you like, don't use a UI that you don't like. That's the whole point of not living in a walled garden, isn't it?

    Compare the above three to an abacus and guess what? The three android phones now are identical. Compare them to a dumb phone, they are still pretty much idendical. Slight variations in size and slightly different UI's because of Sense, Blur, and basic Android (Inc has Sense, DX has Blur, D1 has basic Android). And also, depending on the apps you use, you may see very, very, very little difference at all - since they are all Android 2.2 now (well, wait a few days and they will be).

    I have the d1 with froyo and it is fast, responsive, and gives me absolutely no issues. And i know 4 other people with the d1 and froyo that are having the same experience i am. Sorry in the case of your relatives, but its always possible they have done something wrong, or had something go wrong with the update process.

    I only had 2.2 on my Moto droid for a week, but I can say it was definitely MUCH better than 2.01 when i first got it.

    I agree the Incredible is a much better phone, I just wish there wasn't so much bloat-ware on it.

    My D1 with Froyo will run with any of the DX's, Inc, or D2's the way I've got it OC'd and set up. :)

    Yeh I was referring to stock 2.2. I had my D1 OCed with Froyo but the ROM I used, nuked the wifi. So I brought it back to stock... then bought the Incredible.

    D1 running at 1Ghz does not = Incredible though. Incredible is much smoother.
