    I was playing with it at the store the other day and it didn't feel as fast as it should for having a 1ghz processor.

    So I'm just wondering is this phone fast for browing the web?

    store models are usually slow because of all the people messing with them. I have liberty 1.5 on my x and its unbelievably fast. you can also overclock to 1.45ghz at the most. blur slows everything down :p

    I currently have a Droid 1.

    At the store I was comparing it to the incredible which felt like it was the fastest.

    But I'm thinking about getting the X - do you guys think it's a good phone?

    I'd rather have the Dinc myself.
    Edit* I won't get a device not supported by CM.

    the dinc has an unlocked bootloader which allows for more modification but IMO once you get rid of blur on an x its great. the screen size is amazing and I've found that HTC batteries are kinda bad :/

    The X is the better device regardless of the locked boot loader.
    Better function, better battery performance, and better built.

    The store phones are nothing to use for comparision. Most have all widgets running and apps open. The last one I picked up was not updated and was boggy because it had every app/widget open on 8 pages.

    Yea store displays are junk. The x is fast without the blur. It really is a good device.

    Is it easy to get rid of Blur?

    What kind of benefits do you get after doing so?

    u have to root and install clockwork mod and bootstrapper and download a custom rom of ur choice. a bit tricky at first but u should get it after a while. for me almost double battery life, faster, and no freezes

    I agree with what these guys are saying but please please please be aware that the bootloader is locked meaning that u HAVE to know your safety nets before rooting otherwise we will be walking u through sbf or sbf zips. :)
    Btw....it's nearly impossible to brick the dx so don't let that scare you.
