    I stopped by a VZW store on the way home from work today to check the D3 out. I'm a current D1 user and I've gotta say this device is amazing. It is fast as hell, even on stock launcher. Someone had installed Launcher Pro on it which made it even faster, and for some reason, Dildroid was also installed haha. The pentile screen looks great, crisp, clear and bright. You can only see the graininess if your nose it almost touching the screen. The keyboard is fantastic.

    If it was 4g, it would be my new device. That's only because I live in Phoenix which is a 4g area.

    The weird complaints on this thread don't make any sense to me after seeing the device in person.

    Is that to show the hilarity of the fact that the Charge has been out for at least a month and it's not the Droid3 that's hanging up? :icon_ banana:

    I would think twice before going for the X2, the specs on the D3 are much better. They say the screens are the same but in comparison the D3 screen has NONE of the "pentile" traits, very little pixelation (if you look VERY CLOSE).. The camera on the D3 is also better.

    Just a heads up, I see your new to the forums and I don't know how much knowledge you have about the DX2 but I haven't heard much good..

    I received my D3 yesterday and I love it!!! I am still learning though. I wish I had wrote all my apps down from my D2 before clearing it, now I cannot find some of the apps I liked. Does anyone have a favorite app for watching movies that are free? In love with my D3!!!!dancedroid

    Just got the extended battery with the new back cover. Now the camera is recessed into the back cover, and the droid lays flat and doesn't rock around on the protruding camera, and it's been at 90% for a few hours now. Seems like this is how it was designed to begin with. Diggin it. =D

    Now for root....

    I know it's probably a nogo, but did anyone try simultaneous voice and data yet?

    How exactly does the Thunderbolt achieve voice and data over 3G? Been scratching my head over this one. Why is it the only VZW handset that can do it? My understanding is that it's not to do with LTE, either.
