    This is my first thread yay! I am a BB Tour user as of now with Verizon.

    I want to switch to one of the Droid phones, but am one of those people who HATE buying a lesser device or buying one right before a new one comes out.

    I love the Droid X's hardware, but hear that Blur is a big handicap for the device. It seems that the Incredible's hardware is great but not quite X great, but I hear that Sense UI is great on it. I like the layout of Sense and HTC seems to have their sh** together.

    What device would you recommend if I was rooting and all that good stuff. Just enjoying Android and getting away from my un-innovative BB.

    Thanks!

    What you hear is what people like to complain about.

    Get one in your hand and decide for yourself. I've had both, X over the DI anyday.

    But if you want root right now for whatever reason settle for the DI or Original Droid.

    I like the Incredible better just because at the current moment the X is unhackable.

    I like the X due to the size and light weight.


    Rooting and Custom Roms are very low on my list.

    Some of the blur and sense widgets I would like to have on the droid, especially the scenes. I try so hard to make my own scenes using the default home app and launcherpro plus. Yes there are some stuff that is just not needed, but you have the chice to have it on the home screen or not. People complaining about how the devices is not "pure android" needs to chill. Android has to evolve to get more of the on the fence customers. It is no longer just about the hackers, or android fans. They need to find away to grab the attention of the mainstream, and guess what; mainstream wants motorblur, they want all that stuff ready to go. That is what makes iphone so popular, because it is ready to go out of the box.
    Now they should give advanced users the option to add or remove those features, but for the most part the mainstream audience are not gonna want to wait and go through classes to figure out android. Give them a taste of the abilities, and the n as they continue to learn more about the os, they may care about all the other things android can do.
    The droid x is going after the people that the droid just could not reach. And motorblur/sense is popular believe it or not.

    I guess I should have titled this thread Sense vs. Blur because thats what I am interested in.

    The two powerhouse Android Makers (HTC and Motorola) both have a UI built into their phones for now. My question now is what do you like better Sense or Blur and why?

    Thank you for your help!

    Personally i love Htc senceUi so for me its the Dinc all the way but that being said its really just my opinion. What you will find is there are pro's and con's with both and fans that will defend them to the death lol. Really you have to go to Verizon and try them both out side by side and then you can tell why you like sence way better too lol :icon_ banana:

    I've tried them both and would pick the X. The incredible with sense is extremely hard to use and has terrible battery life.
