    I need to make a decision soon, I have a DX and I am thinking of getting a DX2, is this a wise decision? is the DX2 much better then the DX both in performance or problem wise? thanks for all your input.

    I wouldn't bother unless it's free and outside your normal contract. 1.5Ghz and greater phones are on the way if you can hold out, and at least one of them will launch with Ice Cream Sandwich if that matters at all to you.

    Plenty of people are unhappy with the X2, some fairly, some unfairly. many of them upgraded from the X and express the sentiment that they wish they hadn't.

    I upgraded from the LG vortex to the Droid x2. I'm strongly considering returning it. It has very little ram. And its the only moto Droid without a bootstrap recovery available. None on market and the one for rom manager doesn't work. Am probably just going back to my vortex for the remainder of my contract.

    I love mine the screen is great very visible in sun light. The hysteria over the pentile screen is silly nobody holds their phone 2" away from their eyes.
    The famous music stutter is not much of a big deal with the new update you have to work to make it happen. The messaging app is brilliant all three of my email and all texts are in the one app

    That being said that are some real beasts coming down the pike, so if you can wait I would!

    The screen looked a little worse under froyo, it was really obviously a fault with pentile. 2.3.3 seemed to fix it for me, and I don't even notice it's not a regular LCD.

    I'm not sure why there are so many complaints about DX2, I love mine. It runs even better now after this latest update.

    The screen is much clearer and the battery life is so much better.

    Could it be Motorola sent out so many lemons. If so, that doesn't look good for the company.

    Anywho, just LOVE my DX2!

    Happy customers don't complain. A few will post that they like a product but most only post on forums when they have problems. Makes for an obvious bias. DX2 has been a great phone for me and no phone I've ever owned didn't come with some issues and quirks. Nothing has been deal breaker for me. The camera has been the weakest item on the phone for me and the most troublesome. If I let the phone sleep while still on the camera then I was certain to have a reboot/lockup. Got the new 2.3.4 update on the phone now so we will see if this has been fixed as Moto claims it has.

    I really like my X2. I got it on October 3rd and haven't regretted it a moment. This is actually my first smartphone. My wife has a Thunderbolt and I have dorked around with it but I definitely like my X2 better.

    My biggest complaint is the little amount of ram. I have to hit my task killer after everyother web page it loads, its down to 65 m.

    DX2 owner since it came out and have only been a smartphone owner since then as well. I have no issues with the phone...well, that bother me to the point of bashing it.

    As others have mentioned you might want to wait with so many newer and better devices just over the horizon
