    I've got a Thunderbolt and may have a chance to swap it for a Droid X2 at the Verizon store. Does anyone think I'm crazy giving up 4G (and lackluster battery life) for the DX2?

    Thanks in advance for any opinions/feedback.

    I've seen nothing to indicate the battery life on the DX2 is better. I personally wouldnt give up the 4G for a rehash phone like the DX2

    No way would I do that. Between the LTE and the unlocked bootloader it's not close IMO

    I saw the bootloader news this afternoon on DL and that sealed it for me. Guess I'll hope HTC and verizon keep tweaking the software to improve the battery life like they did on the incredible.

    Thanks again for all the feedback!

    Dual core sounds wicked but I'm happy with my 1.4ghz thunderbolt. Ill wait till all you rich folk iron out the dualcore bugs. Heh

    But 4G has all those battery issues, while the dual cores help battery.

    Having a dual core only benefits the end user, (us), if the RAM and battery match its potential benefits

    I think it really depends on the user, for me since I've rooted I'm getting 10-12 hours out of a charge and I can keep my phone plugged in at my desk all day so battery is a non-issue. For someone who doesn't have access to a charger much I could see where it would be a problem.

    I simply turned off background data on my X2 and I was able to still have 70% battery after a 14 hour shift at work. Given I wasn't browsing the net a ton, I did do some. That is more than enough battery life for a big screen phone as far as I am concerned.

    The dual core is the same as the Acer Iconia A500 10.1" tablet pc. The only hitch I've experienced is difficulty flashing the recovery. That complaint belongs in a help thread.

    The dx2 doesn't have a front facing camera I believe. I may be wrong though.
