    Since I'm coming up on my 30 day return window, I figured I'd see if any DroidXers were defecting to the Samsung Fascinate. After reading various reviews, I see some pros and cons, but not sure I see any compelling reasons to switch.

    I'm torn between the 2, and I'm very satisfied with my X. lol

    Hate to hear the Fascinate is also having GPS issues. I read about that and the stall issue that some or probably all the Samsung phones were having. The stall issue was fixed by root and applying some fix/hack.

    I hate that my X doesnt do TV Out like the Fascinate, doesnt have that gpu, doesnt have that UI....lol Say what u want about it being iPhone-esque, but I like the look of it better than this Blur the X has. I dont like Amoled, Super Amoled right now so the screen isnt an issue for me.

    I'm glad the X's GPS works good and I can rely on it when I need it. I dont know how the reception is on the Fascinate but I love the X's.

    I think the Fascinate will be a good phone for whoever gets it. Like I knew about the cons with the X and still got it, if u can live with the cons of the Fascinate, u will be satisfied too.

    I thought about waiting to get the Fascinate but after reading a few reviews on it, I am so glad I didnt wait. They are tearing it apart.

    apparently they are now saying that verizon may get rid of google search all together on their future android devices. now in my mind it's too early to say that, but the fact that you can't load up google on the fascinate without rooting is a horrible business move on VZW's part.

    That is all speculation based off what they did with one device.

    HELL no I'm not going to switch. I love my Droid X, and the more I read about the fascinate the worse it sounds. Literally the only thing it has going for it is the screen.

    It sure seems like Motorola wants us to jump ship with the way they're handling this 2.2 OTA thing.

    We'll still get 2.2 before the Fascinate owners do, how does that imply they want us to jump ship?

    I don't get how they are handling the 2.2 OTA badly. They promised it in the month of September, technically late summer which is the MONTH of September. So somehow by them not having it out by the 9th day of September makes them a company who handles the 2.2 OTA horribly? The phone hasn't even been out that long. Someone correct me cause I know I'll get the exact number wrong, but hasn't it only been out a month or two.

    This would not surprise me in the least.
    I'm still ticked off about Verizon replacing Google with Bing (without asking) on my Blackberry.
    Man, that pissed me off.

    It is one thing to give me choice, but another to not do so. I don't have time for that kind of manipulation. If I wanted Bing, I would choose it.
    :mad:

    That's a reason why I decided against a blackberry.

    the reason we haven't gotten fryo yet is they are trying to put the patches in the update for the volume, rebooting and freezing, , and the loss of the 3g signal. As soon as they do I am sure we will get it.

    That's funny...
    seeing how i came from a samsung behold that samsung stated 2.x was going to come to. Then all we got was a buggy as hell 1.6 update at the end of june.
    I would never trust samsung with another android device ever. You think the 2.2 update from moto is long.... you will be lucky of samsung updates to 2.2 before 2011.

    Why would I trade in my Aston Martin for a cute little Toyota?

    I currently have the Samsung Fascinate with me. I'll be comparing both the next 3 weeks to see which one I really like better. So far.. I'm very impressed with the Fascinate.

    That is all I will say on this subject.

    Played with the Fascinate in the store today. I am so glad I didn't hold out for it. Much more happy with the DX.
