    Its like I tell all my customers when it comes down to Android devices... all of them are the same in basic capabilitys. It really comes down to hardware design and what do you like the most.

    I really wanted to get the INC, but with the battery issues which I have seen first hand, (2 co-workers have INC and it is ALWAYS plugged in), and no more amoled screen I just couldn't do it.

    Let me tell you though it was hard, felt like picking your favorite child. Ultimately though the X won though due to battery being very good for such a large screen and the better responsiveness of the screen.

    I have the stock phone and am not making any changes until after 2.2.

    I used the DI for 4 weeks before I passed it on to a developer, I just prefer the X.

    One thing I have to say is both phones are great and as long as its a Droid with the features like these two have its A+++. Either one is great.

    Droid original is still best for me. I know its an inc thread but it was an interesting thread to read so far so I thought I'd chime in. As a hardcore Droid user I don't feel either of these are a big enough step up, Droid 2 is a fail also. I wonder what the Dinc might become with a stronger following? I hope for all of the Dinc users that shipments get cranking and your community can grow as ours has. There really needs to be less comparison with these devices and more getting along. Lets grow together.

    have you every held the two phones together? they are most definatley not even close to teh same size. The screen on the x and the entire dinc are closer. Also if y ou get rid of the lock you run the risk of bumping somthing or accidently hitting icons or widgets or turning things on and off so for anyone who might worry bout that turning off the lock is stupid. I have played with the phones side by side with some of the same apps. evn though the x screen shows better, it does load slightly slower. it can lag on some apps and be faster on others. it also depends on what you have running in the background. we matched our two phones for apps running and closed and my dinc was just slightly faster. The size is much bigger and is uncomfortable in many pockets. I have tried on shorts, cargo shorts, loose fit jeans, baggy jeans, and dress pants and a suit. The dinc fits great in all of them and doesnt stick out too much where as the x only fit comfortably into the baggy jeans and the cargo shorts. The hip holster difference is huge as well. the x just takes up so much space. I personally carry my dinc on my hip and dont have a problem except in the car with the seatbelt. the x i had issues sitting everywhere... The OS on both are good but the blur isnt as up to date as the sense. it just isnt as user friendly and typing text and scrolling just is slightly slower. The x cant keep up with my texting but my dinc can. the same for the original droid. it couldnt keep up, nor could the eris for that matter. Just my .02 but the dinc is a much better phone.

    Just passed the Droid X over to the wife and took her HTC Incredible. I am a ROM freak. When the Droid X gets some ROM's or some more hacks I will see if the wife wants to switch back. :icon_rolleyes:

    Im happy to report that my Droid Incredible has arrived and its very slick and smooth. After playing with it all night and DLing all my apps again im very very happy with the phone. Im amazed at how speedy it feels compaired to my old X. Scolling is smooth as silk. One of the features I really enjoy is how well it resizes the browser to read. No sliding it around like I had to do on the X. I double tap and *poof* instant fit to the screen. I love my new Incredible :)

    I just got the Droid X Wednesday...

    and I'm thinking I might get rid of it. It's pretty damn big - I'm female, so smaller hands than most of you.

    I have tried experimenting with placing all my critical widgets in the second to last row, but I'm having trouble keeping a grip on the phone...it's just too wide.

    Me and my BF are headed on an 11hr trip to South Carolina, starting tonight. I'm picking up the stock Car Dock...maybe I'll fall in love with it...otherwise it's all going back next week. If I'm not use to it by then, there's no sense in pushing it...and I want to buy a case...I'm clumsy. Kind of why I'm not fond of the width.

    I'm a web designer, I do freelance on the side and this phone...well the "Android OS," is a lifesaver.

    I did have problems with Acrobat Reader on the X, lagged a lot, took a lot of time to render. I had all other apps killed and shut off. Still problems. On my BF Incredible, no lag, wonderful. It screwed with my X so I actually removed that app altogether...somethings wrong there.

    The camera button on the X...not me. Kinda of annoying and in my way. Though not having a camera button on the Inc? And I'd be giving up the HD...but really my P&S Olympus Outdoor is fine...I'm not a blogger, video blogger and I rarely pull out my camera anyway.

    I actually like the X OS skin, but I'm open to change.

    I also want Swype...cause I'm already spoiled. I might have found it for his phone, but if I can get Swype (Beta) fully functional on his Inc, I think that will push me over.

    And this may be stupid...but the X will look good mounted in my Subi...the Inc is a tad small, but not really. I think this reason should be thrown out the window.

    Any other females have the X? Any that have downgraded? Thoughts? I might have just made my case in full for downsizing. This means prob buying an extended battery too...I need that. A minus of going to the Incredible.
