    So after my 5th eris took a dump yesterday, verizon is giving me a free upgrade!!! Courtesy and talking politely with a manager goes quite a long way. Now the question of the day is, which phone should I get?

    1. Droid X?

    2. Droid 2?

    3. Incredible?

    Thoughts people?

    All are good phones. I wouldn't say that one is much better than another. It really comes down to what you like.
    The Dinc is good, but maybe you wnat to get away from HTC after your bad experince?
    I really like my D2.

    Oh boy... when people ask these questions it just makes it harder for you bcuz everyone will tell you something different. It will always come down to what your looking for. But to answer your question, IMO go with droid 2.

    If it were me, I'd look at the Moto Droids. It'd be a tough choice - do I want something think but too big otherwise, or something the right size but too thick? I'd probably end up going Droid X.

    But, as others said, that's me, and you are you. ;)

    If you don't need a physical keyboard, and if you like a big screen and a fast phone, you won't be disappointed with the Droid X.

    Mine's been rock-solid since the July 15th launch day and I'm very happy with it. You should be aware that you can root it, but its unlikely we will ever be able to install custom ROMs since the bootloader is pretty well locked-down. But, you would be able to root to get root-only apps and underclock it if you want (saves a little battery, but I'm happy with the ability to set custom battery profiles, so I haven't gone the underclocking route). There's other stuff too, but I'm pretty happy with what I can do now and int he future with my X.

    Cheers!

    P.S. My best Quadrant score is 1517 and a Linpack score of 14.407 :cool: [its a snappy little phone :D]

    This. The screen on that phone makes every other smart phone screen I have seen (well, besides the X10 and IP4) look like something made in the 1940s.

    Well having owned an xperia x10, i wouldn't quite but it with the ip4 or galaxy s phones based on screen quality as it is a bit bland :)

    But Def the Fascinate...

    I like it even with bing...i just wished i had waited for awhile before i left verizon with at & t

    Now i am stuck with a craptivate that i don't like haha

    Yeah a new phone for every month bahaha :)

    I actually like At & t
    they are just lacking right now in great phones for Android

    but since i plan to get on Windows 7 bandwagon, it looks like they
    are going to have some great devices....

    I too have given up on the Eris. I have to admit the Eris was a good phone and never gave me a fit. It was just slow and outdated and I had an opportunity to upgrade and went with the Samsung Fascinate. I am happy with my choice and the phone so far is incredible (not htc .. haha). So good luck with whatever you choose. I think you can't go wrong with either the DX or SF.

    Actually no he wont. Verizon released a statement that they will be bringing apple products on board. They did not state what products or a time frame but really its a wireless phone provider so your choice, iPhone or Ipad or variants of either.

    As for a phone... Droid 2 seems to be the statistically the least returned or complained about phone according to surveys.

    I also had an HTC Eris and it chunked as well. I had 3 of them until I got a refurbished (basically new) DROID 2 and absolutely I love it. It is so friggin fast (1 Ghrz) and 2.2 software. Get it and you won't be disappointed. you'll wanna make love to it. Trust me.

    Well i liked the concept of the kin phones
    that i owned till i realize the hardware sucked ass

    the HD 7 looks to be a great device but i'd never lower my standards and go to t-mobile for the phone

    i like the htc surround

    to be honest, Android just isn't there for me...

    While i was with verizon and had an eris and the droid, droid inc and x
    that was pretty much the only choice i have

    I like at & t because i have the option of the iphone 4 which i had briefly
    , android, blackberry 6, and now windows 7

    If i was on verizon, i'd probably be sticking with the droids(yeah i'll through the fascinate in there) but the droids and verizon are basically the same as the iphones and at &t(before 2010)

    not much decent choices....
