    I'm going to say it's not too big. I can see this screen being breathtaking, similar to the HD2 and the EVO. So the size of that screen will be well worth it. This just won't be the type of phone you can put in your back pocket and sit on...

    Who puts a phone in their back pocket and sits on it?

    lol, that is why I will never do it. I would definitely forgot about it and probably break it.

    That hump on the back might be a deal breaker.

    that hump is going to feel great in my hand.
    it seems like it would make it a lot easier to hold on to one handed, especially with a device that big.
    gives you something for your index and middle finger to do.

    If you have big hands, true, but for us mid or smaller hands, the hump adds to the volume size of the device and will make it even more awkward to operate with one hand. Volume wise when considering the hump, the device is about 30% bigger than the Inc?

    This makes the G1's chin seem quaint ;)

    I read somewhere that the hump is still thinner than the iPhone. If that is true then how could it be a deal breaker? could be people just shooting from the hip but it does bring up an interesting point.

    edit: I looked it up, the iphone 3g and 3gs are .48" D and the X is .39" D one would presume that is at it's thickest point.... the hump

    Samsung S would fit the bill for me, since 4", but they (Samsung) suck big Oprah butt in regards to OS updates.

    My Inc will have to do for a while.

    If people have no problem with the size, the hump will make no difference to them. I can not operate the EVO one handed without risking it dropping (I made the Best Buy dudes nervous). Swyping with this would be rough.

    That said, if I had bigger hands or at least longer thumbs, I would consider this device. Perhaps Moto should have called it: The Monolith ;)

    That's why I date girls with small hands.

    This thread has so many opportunities for double entendre and innuendo, you guys are just so dirty!

    Noted :) For my own sanity isn't the EVO a bit wider and a bit thicker than the X and the X is just taller or am I remembering that wrong as well?

    It really does, and that one made me lol.

    You are correct. The EVO is 1/10" wider and the X is 2/10" taller. I think the X is also 1/10 thinner...at its thickest point (the hump).

    You are correct. The display dimensions and similar bezel make it slightly thinner. The X's display is like the Droid's as far as shape. Thinner and taller, due to pixel dimensions.

    Given VZW's superior 3G coverage and the newer hardware in the X, the X is a "no brainer" when compared to Sprint EVO, for you big handed (or long thumbed) folks.

    I'll have to reserve judgment until I can actually play with it. Admittedly, seeing the Inc (which is what I have now) next to it makes it seem like its not so big. My Inc right now with protective case is probably about the same size as the Droid X naked. My concern comes once you put a protective case on the Droid X... it'll be massive. I'm kind of in between right now.. I admit when I'm browsing on my Inc, I sometimes wish I had a bigger screen. Like if it were just a little bigger, it would be perfect.. but the Droid X looks like it might be too big to house in a pocket after getting a protective case and I'd consider myself above average height/size (6'2 196 lbs).

    PS: I always look at phones from a pocketable standpoint.. and I kind of wish they did the same kind of buttons in the front as the Inc. Those individual buttons look like they'll be lint traps.

    Keep in mind that the X is thinner than the incredible. I didn't see this link in the thread and I have been putting it everywhere and this is probably the most deserving place for it Sized Up: Droid X vs Incredible

    If it's truly .39 thick at the hump, the it's really a thin phone.

    And if that's the case, then I wish they'd made it slightly thicker and put in a huge battery.... like a 2000 or 2500mAh.

    I've held the EVO and would have no problem with it so my guess is the Droid X will be ok too. Gotta hold it myself though to see if that hump feels ok in my hand.

    I will say this about the hump...I have a Logitech Harmony 1100 remote control. It has two humps (one on each side of the remote) and they are a huge help when holding the remote one-handed.

    Yea, I was looking at the pictures, and this was the first thing I thought of too. I have to believe they were thinking about that when the phone was designed because they can easily sell an extended life battery that just increases the length of the hump to fill in some of the thinnest area.

    Yea, I've definitely taken this into consideration and it does factor in the overall pocket economy it takes up, especially when in a protective case. My main thing is, when I go to work, I usually wear form-fitting dress pants so just the sheer overall size would stick out. Guess I could always resort to a clip when going to work.

    I guess it depends if you work with a whole bunch of guys or have lady friends at work.:D
