    ive had all 3 phones now (moto, incredible, and now x) and to me i think the incredible is superior to them all. as such im returning the x. not that its a bad phone, but to each their own. coming from the incredible, the colors on the x are completely washed out. i find that the touchscreen is not as responsive as the incredible (could be my imagination, could be just my device, who knows). not only that, i doubt ill use the phone for anything it was designed for (780p, etc etc.)

    if you've never had a droid, its a good place to start. but im just gonna go back to my incredible and wait until november of this year =)

    Not that this will influence your decision, but the colors on the X AREN'T washed out - they're actually how colors should look. The Incredible (along with most AMOLED screens) are actually extremely oversaturated. If you're coming from that to the X, then yes, it will look different. I read some comparison between all the top tier smartphones, and the Droid X is actually the phone that best shows colors like they should be (over the iPhone, DINC, etc.).

    I've had all three also. The colors on the X look more like they should. The incredible looks to saturated to me. The yellows look orange to me on it. The incredible is a great phone but I'm staying with the X.

    Unless you still have your Incredible. You will not have the same colors because there is no more AMOLED screens. They are going to LCD now.

    It was a tough call for me. UI on the Incredible is faster (UI) PERIOD. But battery life, HDMI out, and direct sunlight viewing converted me.

    Have you used the incredible? 3 of my crew swapped from the Droid after I got my incredible...My engineer is thinking of returning his X before the 30 days if he can get one...I may swap him my incredible for his X but I plan on either getting the Droid Pro of next HTC that comes out with a front camera.....But the Droid is not better and my incredible is faster than the X as well....

    The screen on a Incredible reminds me of a lcd tv with the color cranked up to eye burning levels at bestbuy...The X looks just like my panny plasma screen dose, color wise...

    I've had the DIC before the X. Maybe I am blind, but I don't see a big difference in the screen visually, actually they look the same to me, except the X is larger.

    I thought the DIC's screen was overly sensitive to touch. Don't get me wrong, the DIC was a fine phone, but I was getting the random reboots, a lot.

    The only thing on the X that I do not like is the external speaker, its waaaay too low, IMO.

    I've become hooked on the solid, heavy, high-quality feel of the Moto's. I know I'll never go back to another Samsung or HTC. I don't know how I'll ever go back to a smaller screen again either. The X has rebaselined my expectations of what a phone should be.

    You mean that rumor that was started by some guy name "Bill" off the Howard Forums? Correct me if I am wrong but there isn't anything to validate those supposed specs. Besides, considering the nature of technology, of course theres always something better on the horizon.

    This sounds like some one butt-hurt over the incredible. Probably got a droid a few days before the incredible came out. Now they feel cheated and have made the incredible their sworn enemy.

    To use a bit of a metaphor, your phone thinks your battery is a foot long, but in actuality, it's three feet long. You have to show your phone where the far end of the battery is. You do this by draining it down. Try it. Research it. I can provide links if you can't find the authoritative advice.

    My phone is on power saver. I'm not a heavy talker, but do some moderate texting with my kids and coworkers. Take a look. Battery status shows 70%. Look at the time since unplugged.

    Thanks for the reply...i know all about the battery stuff and i did that right away...let the battery drain till the phone shut off while usin it and then let it fully charge...i actually did it the second day to....one thing i payer attention to today...in battery use on my phone earlier it showed display around 90 something percent which is no suprise...well since i unplugged my phone today i have not made any calls just testing and gettin some apps and stuff...so when i click on display and it shows how long my display has been on total...isn't that showing exactly how long my battery lasted while usuing my phone with the screen on??? It was a little over 2 hours...is a little over two hours of use (with screen on. No calls) normal for this phone?

    How many social networking widgets do you have running on your home screens? Do you have GPS locating turned on? Auto brightness on your screen? And stop using that task killer so much.

    I had the same problems. I did a full reset on my phone, didn't load my phone with a billion apps I'll never use, stopped using a task killer, and destroyed all the constantly-updating social networking widgets.

    I use my phone heavily, and after a full day, I'm at 40% charge. This phone's life is miles better than my BB Storm 1. The bad battery is more than likely user error.
