    It seems to me that every since the droid x every phone that comes out is oversized and extra big screen. Me personally i would like a phone with about the screen size of the d2 and without the sliding keyboard but has just as much under the hood with a front facing camera. The atrix is kinda wat im lookin for but its not available to verizon. Anybody else feel the same way?

    It's probably the flavor of the week. I'm assuming the masses are asking for larger screens, but I could be wrong.

    I actually prefer the larger phones, but I have big hands and fat fingers.....lol.

    I also have fat fingers so the bigger screens suit me. I will say though that my girl has a Samsung vibrant and although I don't know the specifics off the top of my head, its bigger then the d2 and smaller than the dx and it feels just the right size in my hands... except its really plasticy.

    This is truly my only complaint. I really was expecting a normal sized phone. At least make a 4.0 motorola... thats what they have been doing with the D2 and the Dx.

    I was hoping for a 4.0 but I am not passing the Bionic up just because it has more real estate :)

    To be honest i still think 4.0 is big. I just want a dual core D1 with better ram.. 3.7 is big enough.

    Yea 3.7 is big enough. Anything bigger is almost a brick. If u ask me, my droid 2 is better than the x. The x is just bigger. A regular size 3.7 with dual processor and front facing camera will be the champion

    I have the Droid x and I love it.
    For all you people that say the X isn't as good as the Droid 2 need to go to Verizon's website and compare the two phones. The X does a lot more for the same price.

    ^ I can't wait... seriously, I use BT 99% of the time and if I'm not on BT I'm using speaker. I am, however more of a business user so 90+% of the time when I'm 'using' the phone for something other than a call it's to read or write emails or do something work related online so a tablet-sized phone would be PERFECT!!!!! Something like the size of a Galaxy or just a little bigger (~9-10" I thing would be ideal).

    Besides turnaround is fair... you sissies need to suck it up for a while, lol. Those of us with larger hands/fingers have been in agony for years as phones got smaller and smaller to the point where many were just plain frustrating for use to use (not to mention handle w/o thinking we were going to break them). You all can deal with being inconvenienced for a while. :icon_ banana:

    With a good phone, hand size isn't a issue. I got huge hands. Im a division 1 wideout and pick footballs out the air wit one hand easily so don't act like I don't understand. I have no problem wit typing on my d2
