So... even though I have been told several times by my ever-so trustworthy local Verizon reps, that they would not have a demo unit in... I decided to pop in today and with the intention of getting their store hours for Thursday. And when I inquired... just for shits a giggles... LOW AND BEHOLD they HAD one!!!! So here is my quicky review from a chicks perspective. I am a long time Blackberry user (Curve, Storm, Tour) and a recent user of the Incredible(two weeks) I will be writing this largely in comparison of the Incredible, because frankly... if you are on Verizon, the X and the Incredible are probably your two contenders. Not to leave the original Droid owners out... but hey... it is what it is: Overall Look and Feel: Flat out, this thing is not as "sexy" as the Incredible. The Incredible is curvy and slick. The X is more box-ish. At first I was like, This isn't big enough to be the X.... I don't know what I had in my head. But the whole, "OMG this thing is SO freaking huge!!!!" is a crock of crap. Yes its big, buts its not crazy big. Its very slim. I think from what I have read that it is heavier or as heavy as the Inc, but it doesn't feel that way. Probably because of the difference in center of gravity. But the X is nice. It did lend itself to be held with two hands, which former BB owners will like I think. I myself like to type two handed. But I could reach all necessary areas of the screen without much problem one handed. I am 5'7" and have average, but not huge hands. The screen was hard to judge. The Inc of course has such rich colors. The X I played with was not customized, so the color scheme was very neutral. I watched a movie clip on it and the picture looked very true to life in color. Not supersaturated like the Inc tends to be. So not as flashy... but nice. The size was perfect. Great viewing area. I think 4.3 is perfect. I can't wait to be able to watch/show off videos that I have taken of the kids on it. Keyboard/typing: I have been a long time user of a real keyboard. I REALLY hesitated getting the incredible because of a lack of one. My BB Storm SUCKED ASS, and I didn't keep it very long. But I have found that between the responsive keyboard and the autocorrection, these new droid devices work just fine. I do tend to hit the wrong key with the Inc, because the spaces are so small, but the auto correct usually catches it. On the X, I hit less wrong keys. I LOVED the keyboard. The auto correct looks a little different, its not as easily seen, but it works just as well, if not better. It also does talk to text entries as well, which i have really come to depend on as well. I did not test out Swype, because honestly the keyboard works so well on both these phones, ya dont need it. The keyboard set up is different on the X. The punctuation is on its own screen. I had seen this in a couple of videos, and worried about it, but its easy to get to and well laid out. So no worries there. Camera: Didn't have enough time to really explore it, but the rep said it takes awesome pics. I like the zoom feature of the volume toggle and the dedicated camera button. The program seemed easy to use. Speed: The X was fast and sleek. I didn't notice the "hitch"someppl are talking about. I really like the screen shortcuts at the bottom. Much easier to get to jump between screens that way instead of pinch to zoom and THEN pick a screen like you do with Sense. Other than that, I couldn't tell much about the speed in the few minutes I had to play with it. I didn't get a chance to test the call quality or anything... But I did send myself a text, so the whole bullcrap about they can't activate a phone until the 15th??? ( refering to those who "accidentally" were sent theirs early) Overall... if sleek "iphone-ish" looks are what you are going for, the Inc may be more your style. If function it what you want...Get the X. I am!
