    hello everyone im gonna let everybody else decide this one for me. right now i have a Droid 1 and am ready for a upgrade with big red so i wanted to get a opinion whether i should upgrade to the DX2 with accessory bundle the got going on or should i wait for something better. only thing i really like about DX2 is dual core and big screen not to fond of the hard buttons. also i really like the price right now its only gonna be $170 for everything so question is should i wait or upgrade now? thanks to all in advance

    Also forgot to mention lte doesnt matter i probably wont see it for atleast a year

    Personally, I'm willing to wait a bit. I know we could be waiting forever, but the X2 doesn't do it for me, my OG is still capable and for me to upgrade I'll need something pretty game changing.

    Like you, I don't like the physical buttons on the DX model, or the camera hump.

    I'd wait.

    I'm sure there are more 3g dual-core devices coming and i'm in no rush to get 4g, even though I'm in a 4g area.

    I would check out the DX2 sub forum on this site. Its definitely a decent looking phone. The people on the subforum are experiencing some pluses and minuses.

    Id wait, but you can't go wrong. Pretty much every android phone these days is great.

    I'm loving my x2 coming from an og droid. I didn't think I would like the physical buttons but I'm already used to them and like the fact that I don't accidentally hit the buttons all the time.

    Overall I don't feel like I wasted my upgrade or anything. I'm personally happy with my x2

    This is a qyestion asked all the time "should I wait or not" well really wait for what? The next phone and then the question will b again "should I wait or not" this is a on going thing....there will ALWAYS be a better and faster phone coming out so unless your a baller you can't keep up with them so if you like it get it is my logic

    Blame the figures not me!!!

    While it's hard to not agree with the non-waiters, it's just different right now.

    Phones are really changing in the next few months with dual cores and LTE.

    Why use an upgrade on a DX2 when you can get a dual core LTE in a month or two. The DX2 can't do anything your DX1 or even OG can't do.

    The most improvement you'll see is with LTE and you upgrade now, your city will definitely have LTE coverage before your next upgrade occurs. Mine already has great LTE coverage and I live in a medium sized city in North Carolina.

    Obviously in the end it's all up to the user, whether they're tired of their phone, or it's slowing down ect... For me, I feel like there's some real "game changers" coming out in the next few months.

    You can say there will be even better ones a few months after that, but nothing like the jump we're going to see with the Bionic, or whatever replaces it in the line up.

    Considering that a OG Droid pushed to the limit is a very capable phone and the DX2 is not that huge of an upgrade I personally wouldn't go for it, but the waiting game sucks, just look at the Bionic fanclub.
