    What would you do with it? I currently have a droid x, I like it, had the original droid before this. Never rooted either phone unfortunately. I really like htc's interface and the thunderbolt feels good in the hand, love the features, and 4g is close to where I live but not in my city yet...

    Basically I'm wondering if the thunderbolt is worth using the upgrade, or if I should wait for dinc 2, X2, or even the lg phone coming out. Ugh! Decisions decisions. What would you guys do?

    Exactly! And the bionic is VERY appealing. I've seen a few thunderbolts for sale on CL lately for under 400 new in box. Maybe I'll do that and keep my upgrade for the bionic. I don't know though.....

    Yea if you got money to spend it would be nice for sure. Im rooted running liberty so i have no complaints and it wouldnt be worth it for me. Heck, this phone will be gettin gingerbread real soon too. I want a phone that would blow this one outta the water and im just not seeing it right now...

    i couldnt imagine using a stock droidx, whenever i have to use an unrooted x it makes me sad at how bad blur really is.

    I think if you were to root and install the gbread leak you'd be able to hold off for a wile, it would feel like a new phone.

    I've rooted my X, but haven't loaded any custom ROMs. I rooted to gain hotspot ability. Moto's stuff isn't as obtrusive as I was expecting & it's not that bad.

    i'm saving my upgrade as well. i love my dinc and if i'm swapping to a 4g phone , i need the following requirements:

    - screen resolution on a 4.3" should be really good like an ips. is the bionic 900*xxxx resolution? i would want that on that qhd display
    - battery life has to be pretty good
    - not plasticy

    thunderbolt is too big and heavy for me. the charge seems good, but i hate the plasticy of the galaxy s phones. i was really dreaming that there would be a 4" lte phone but they are all seem to be 4.3"

    hence..i'm waiting a bit. who knows, the iphone 5 might surprise as i hate to say it.

    I have a Droid X, and just got the Thunderbolt. To be honest, next to a rooted Droid X, the only big advantage of the Thunderbolt is 4G data speeds, which I must say are very impressive. Here is my comparison (ratings out of 10):

    Voice Quality:
    DX- 9
    TB- 5

    The Droid X is very crisp and clear, while the Thunderbolt is tinny sounding.

    Battery Life:
    DX- 7
    TB- 1

    My Droid X can last 24-30 hours on a charge, while the Thunderbolt can only last 8-10 hours per charge

    Build Quality:
    DX- 10
    TB- 9

    I could go on and on, but I truly believe the Droid X is a better phone in most respects. That said, the 4G data speeds are amazing, and right now I'm sacrificing a bit to get those speeds. Yes, the Sense interface is clean, has great widgets, and keeps social networking well organized, it does seem a bit bloated compared to the stock Android and even MotoBlur.

    The Droid Bionic will be the best of both worlds and as soon as it's released I will be getting rid of the Thunderbolt, given that it meets my expectations.

    If I had an upgrade I would wait for either the Bionic or the Galaxy S2.
