    (I posted this same question in the Droid X forum, I thought I would post it here as well to get opinions of Droid 2 owners. If this is a problem for mods please forgive me and delete the other thread:))

    I currently have a (new to me) Droid 2, Rooted and running Liberty Gingerbread V0.8 ROM. I really like it, it's fast, smooth, functional and looks great.

    Now I have found a nice used Droid X for sale (cheap) locally and am wondering if it would be worth an upgrade? It would only cost me about $50 if I were to sell my Droid 2

    (Note, I don't much care about the physical keyboard)

    I honestly checked out both phones they are pretty much the same except the difference in camaras, and screen size. Its really just a personal prefence, I chose the d2 because of the keyboard.

    Well, if you want a DX, go for it - otherwise no need to waste the 50 beans. Some people like the larger screen... I personally think the DX screen size is bit excessive, but then again I'm just used to my D2 (and its keyboard).

    My girlfriend has a DX and it is definitely a good phone. Very similiar to the D2 with little differences. We have both swapped them and tried them out but I would say what makes her enjoy the DX more is the camera. She takes a lot of pictures and loves the camera it has. I prefer the D2 for it's size (same as my D1 of over a year) and don't care about the camera.

    Droid 2 Pros- Keyboard, More portable, slightly better looking screen due to size

    Droid X Pros- Bigger Screen, HDMI, Higher MP Camera, Android 2.3, Dedicated camera button

    I had the DroidX and switched to the Droid2. Why? I absolutely hated the 4 physical buttons. Got so annoying I traded someone even up for a D2. I'm way happier with the capacitive buttons. Just something else to consider.
