1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Ok so I had the Droid 1 shortly after launch and than I bought the Droid Incredible on its launch day because I wanted something without a keyboard. Because I have 5 lines on my account I am up for an upgrade now. Over the weekend I bought the Samsung Fascinate and I just am not impressed with it enough to keep it (especially since its still on 2.1). I am debating on returning it and picking up the DX after work today, but am on the fence about it. Anybody have any experience with the Dinc, Fascinate, and/or Droid X and want to share their input.

    Also note, I root and do all that to it. I know of eFuse and all that on this phone but thats beside the point.

    I struggled with my decision from a D2G to the DX. I just couldn't leave the big screen!! I think I made a good decision.

    Ok but why do you say this? I would like some supporting evidence or experience with all (or at least 2) of the phones I mentioned.

    You've basically run through the lineup of VZW phones already.

    You don't like the Fascinate, this coming from a DInc, and a D1 before that.

    You want a phone without a hard keyboard.

    You must want a DX.

    Not to mention...you're asking a bunch of DX'ers if DX is a good choice.dancedroid

    Lol is it worth the upgrade from the DInc though? I loved the screen on the Fascinate, but still having Android 2.1 is a major downer IMO.

    I haven't really spent time with the Incredible other than my own testing in VZW before I went with the DX. Max'ing out the screen size, and everything you can do with it...which isn't so much different between each other.

    Again, you've got a great thing going I'd say. Hook up with a DX just because...

    I had the D1 and loved the phone but just wanted something newer and after getting used to the touch screen I could see just how much more useful a larger screen would be (I never used the keyboard which was the main reason I bought the D1). My father has the Inc and I have used it many times. Good phone and very snappy (I like Sense), but the screen size is small and I knew I wanted something bigger. The debate was whether or not to wait until one of these new phones comes out early next year, but I just got impatient. I bought the droid X last week and love it. The screen is great and the size of the phone has not been an issue for me at all. I fine it so much easier to type and browse the net on the larger screen. Also, I root and OC my Droid to 1.2 and the X just seems so much faster. I also rooted the X but have not overclocked it as it seems perfect at 1ghz.

    I would do not regret getting the X and would recommend. I too have a number of lines so the upgrade was not a big issue

    I'll chime in here. I've NEVER had the Droid X before. But VZW is swapping me to it from the Droid 2 from the Droid 1. I had the Droid 1 LOVED it. If I had never gotten a FRU. I'd still be using it. But VZW lack of QC for repairing the D2's led me to get the DX. I've never used one. LOVED the REAL keyboard on the 1 and 2. But I look at it this way. The DX has a HUGE screen , so it has a huge A$$ keyboard on screen. I'd try the D2G and the X. Don't just test the keyboard. Make sure it's a phone you want for a year or 2.

    Oh I am. I thought im miss the physical keyboard on the Droid and Droid 2 but the X screen is so large that typing is very easy with few mistakes. I use the multi touch.
