    So the Droid X's talk time is stated to be 8 hours, while the iPhone 4's talk time is stated to be 7 hours. Does that mean the Droid X's battery will last as long as the iPhone's? I'm not exactly sure how battery length works.

    Motorola said that the X will get comparable battery life to the original Droid, which got through a day's worth of usage just fine (and more if you only used it lightly).

    I wouldn't worry about the battery life too much.

    And if you need more, there's a 1900mAh battery coming out later that will only add 1mm to the thickness.

    I saw that the thickness is 9.9mm at the thinnest, but what is it at the top of the phone? I haven't seen that on any of the sites...

    Oh wow that's awesome. Well if I find the battery life a little disappointing, the 1900mAh battery will really help.

    Pretty sure it's 9.9mm at its thickest point (the hump)

    No way, the iphone is 9.3mm thick and it's like the thinnest phone ever, how could motorola make a phone that's half that thick at the thin part (from pictures it sure looks like the thin bottom part is ~half the thick hump at the top)

    Yeah, idk then. Still from the looks of this picture, the thin part of the Droid X is just as thin, if not thinner than the iPhone 4:

    Oh my. You can't get much thinner than that! I wonder how the build quality is compared to the iPhone 4. My friend got his today, and it just feels like a great built phone. I hope this feels extremely solid and not cheap or anything.

    From hands-on reports, they have been saying that it feels solid and praise its industrial design. They're not saying anything that it looks/feels plasticky.

    That's lovely then. I recall reading reviews on the Incredible praising it for it's speed and what not but also hating it for the plastic feel to it.

    My iphone 4 preorder arrived today...tomorrow a guy is picking it up for $800. $250 in my pocket once I cancel my ATT contract, take out the price of the phone.

    That'll be just enough to cover my new Droid X, woot


    I did pull the iphone 4 out of the box just to see what it was like, and it's nice, but damn I know i'd f'ck it up with glass on the front and back, haha.

    Off contract price, I guess. And saves him waiting in line, for sure.

    I guess it's like a bit of an Ebay thing but in person. :p I'm sure on Ebay they will go for higher, but I'm assuming Ebay will stop them.

    Exactly, off contract it's $600 or $700 + waiting in line since i don't think they did pre-orders on off contract phones. Plus, if you're waiting in line you might not even get one if the store you're at runs out.

    Friend of mine got his yesterday and I messed around with it today. I think it feels like it was made nicely, but for some reason I hate the feel of it in my hands. I feel like the edges are sharp on that bad boy, maybe I am use to the regular iphones? Nice phone, but not what I want.
