    So I had a droid about a month ago and canceled my account to get an iPhone 4. I've been pretty happy with ATTs service, and with the phone itself so far. Well, until today, I received a letter in the mail from Verizon saying they want me back and they'll wave my cancellation fee, they'll give me 100 off any smartphone if I sign a 2yr contract, and they'll wave the activation fee. I still have a week to return my iPhone and get my money back, so if I did, I'd get my 230 back....

    Now I'm pretty sure I'm gonna do it, but I'm not sure what phone to get, I went to the VZW store and played with the X, the Incredible, the Droid 2 and I honestly can't decide. I'm leaning towards the X at the moment, but it seems to me the Incredible's screen is more accurate, coming pretty close to the iPhone's. Could that be because of a crappy X display or is that the general consensus? Also, are there any new Droids coming out soon?

    Thanks!

    It's all up to you, but here's my personal take:

    VZW's coverage is infinitely better in the places I spend time.

    Do you want a physical keyboard? Then D2.

    The DInc and DX are both great phones, no matter what the display models do. I'd take the DX over the DInc because I like the display more, I think the battery life is a bit better on stock batteries, and I like Motorola's phones in general. Also, keep in mind that the DInc is on it's way out -- it's something like 6 months old.

    There are always new phones coming out, both LTE (4G) phones and more 3G phones. You'll have to do some research on your own, but I dont know how much has been confirmed. Something new around the corner is just a way of life.

    It's completely up to you. Good luck.

    Thanks for the replies so far.

    I went the iPhone route because I believe the iPhone is the better phone, and I still do. If VZW hadn't sent me that letter, I wouldn't have thought twice about switching back. Anyway, by phones coming out soon, I meant like within the next month or so.

    so your main concern is just saving money and going with a inferior phone?
    but for phones coming out, i don't remember which ones but if you look around there is plenty of information

    If you think the iPhone is superior (how? Hardware it's no great shakes except for the display and front-facing camera, and software is more stable but far less flexible?), then you'll not be happy with a Droid, regardless of the model.

    However, if you're going to save the $200 anyway, I'd recommend either the Incredible or the X at the moment. The Incredible is about as close to an iPhone as you're going to get at the moment.

    I meant in looks and hand-feel, not in specs or useability (or lack-thereof, no slight intended, we ARE talking about an iPhone here). :)

    Droid X is the way to go... so long as you can handle the size ok. It takes some getting use to but once you do there is nothing better.
