    Didn't have time to read it yet but figured you guys can. One thing though is this side by side pic. Wow!!!! The X looks huge next to the DI. That is alot of screen real estate. I've seen quite of few comparison pics but that one really brings it into perspective.

    What's really strange is that the X doesn't look that much bigger in the picture of the two phones on a table side-by-side. However, the X looks MUCH bigger in the picture of both of them being held side-by-side.

    To be honest I though the photos from the incredible looked a lot better than those from the droid; esp the colour spectrum; also those from the droid x looked over sharpened.

    This is the classic camera bias of two objects when one is held a little closer to the lens. The X is being held closer (unless the dude has very different sized hands).

    The adult video industry has used this "bigger" trick for many years ;)

    update:

    Actually, it must be biased, since look at the relative phone size in the equal level picture compared to the hands one. There is definite position bias for the X in the hands one. Optical illusion, since the hands picture shows more size difference than the level picture. Please compare top and bottom spacing in both pics. The hands picture has a device space gap at top and bottom, but the level pic only has top gap and it is actually LESS than the top gap in the hands one. Way off.

    Bad size comparison pic, due to positional bias of the hands.

    That was an interesting comparison. Thanks for posting. I like Sense too, and the notion of a Droid X with a more Sense-like feel sounds ideal, therefore I think the X will be very neat with LauncherPRO or equivalent and a few extra widgets from the Android Market.

    In person the X is different then what I thought it would be. For instance the hump on the back is really non existent. In pictures you think you'd really be able to notice it but not so much.

    Thanks for posting this review. Size will be in my decision to go X or Inc.

    Thanks for the pics, and like someone else said the X doesn't feel huge in person and the hump isn't even noticeable when holding.

    But man that X looks like a beast in those pictures, I'm getting more excited.

    Yep, and confirms the hands picture above is not held on an equal level and angle in relation to the lens. Size is way off.
