    my phone plan is up on this coming monday and i am looking forward to getting my new droid!! Current phone is the lg dare, which has been decent, but really excited to finally have a smart phone. Between the incredible, x, and 2, i'm leaning toward the droid x. My wife recently got the incredible and hates it, battery life is absolute crap and will never hold a phone call. Really thought i would want the droid 2 bc of the slideout keyboard, but since using the dare for 2 years, i really like a solid touch screen. Any opinioins or advice on which one out of the three u guys would prefer the most?

    and here we go again....

    we cannot decide what phone you get. it's obvious you don't want the incredible and that the only thing holding you back from the droid 2 would probably be the thickness, due to the keyboard.

    sounds like you already made up your mind with the DX

    :welcome: to the forum!

    Not to [​IMG]but what phone you get is totally up to what you want and how it feels in your hand. However, nabbing a top-of-the-line phone when you can is a good idea. Take a look at the newest story on the front page and see if that phone is right for you. :)

    first of all, welcome to the forum!! once you get your droid, i think you'll find this place to have a wealth of info, and plenty of helpful people! hope you stick around!! :)

    as for your phone choice, that is really a personal decision, that depends on your needs and likes. my recommendation is to go into a VZW store and spend some time trying them all out. the one that's best for you will most likely become apparent after a little testing. also, just fyi, there are supposed to be several new phones coming out in November, including the Droid Pro (Nov 11) and the HTC HD (much like the EVO) (rumored to be Nov 23).

    happy hunting, and i look forward to seeing you around the forum when you make your choice! :)

    They are all solid phones. The only one with true root is the incredible. The other two use bootstraps to load roms and backup and restore data. All in all its your choice. You can't really go wrong its an android.

    ok thanks for the advice, will go to verizon when the time comes and just see which one i like best. Obviously it seems this has been posted quite a bit, just wanted some advice as to which would be the best pick. Seems they are all about the same anyway, and it just comes down to personal preference. Trust me, i will be back on the forums searching numerous stuff on my new droid once i finally get it, and of course asking for some help here and there

    i have the D1, my wife has the D Inc, and some friends have the D2 and DX. being rooted, i'm perfectly content with the D1. but if i had to get a phone tomorrow, it would probably be the DX. personally, i'm holding out for the T2!!!! :)

    Welcome to the group. I am in the same boat as you as I will be getting a Droid within a couple of weeks and am flip flopping between the DX and the D2. I will have a chance to look at one of my daughters new X as the company she works for is giving everyone a Droid phone of their choice and she will be receiving a DX shortly.

    The x is huge, the d2 had they physical keyboard. That'd be the main difference.

    Unless you're going for the r2d2. :biggrin:

    This came from my brain by way of my finger and my phone. Don't ask where any of them have been. Especially the brain.

    I too have the Droid 1. Love the FULL system access that the Droid 2 or Droid X don't allow. If I HAD to choose I'd probably go with the X. Simply because it's got more features. But I'm happy with my Droid 1. Your choice though. We are not in your head. :)

    I have the droid 2 and love it....the x was too odd shaped for me. I like the heft of the 2 as well....stock rom oc at 1.35 is great....rooted for free tether through barnacle.

    No matter which one you choose remember you are not going to get the battery life of your Dare by a long shot.
    You are also coming from a push to make it go touch screen to a real touch screen and getting used to the UI will take some time as well
