    So how has your guys experience been with the Droid 2 running FROYO? My Droid X took a major dump (never rooted). My phone is under warranty so I am going to suggest they let me get a Droid 2.

    I really like my D2. I have thought about getting the DX because of the larger screen. The D2 comes stock with Froyo 2.2. Not OTA to worry about :)

    If you like keyboards get the D2. If you like big screens and a better camera stick with the DX. The guts of both phones are practically the same. So is a lot of the software.

    yea pretty much.

    I didnt have the choice but if i did, i would have still chosen the Droid II because i Wove physical keyboards.

    between the X and D2, its the personal preference of liking big screens and being able to live with out the physical keyboard or you must have a physical keyboard and dont mind 3.7" screens.
    then theres the megapixel difference..

    so the choice is yours buck-o'

    I have a replacement DX on the way so lets see how this works out. I had a blackberry on ATT and kinda miss the keyboard honestly.

    Good luck! I hope it works out best for you! I too came from BB, having the physical keyboard made it an easier transition. Now if they could have the DX screen and a slide out keyboard, that would be an awesome phone :p

    Im just the opposite, I never, ever use my keyboard! I got my Droid 2 as a replacement to my Eris as well, wish they would have given me the choice for the DX.
    Hope that your replacement works for you!

    I went from the DX to the D2, after a couple weeks of the DX. My screen had some issues with accuracy, so I had to push buttons to the left or it'd hit a different button. But other than that, I missed my D1 keyboard, and the screen didn't seem as sharp on detail, and it didn't fit in my pocket or dash cubby as well as the D1/2.

    Yea, thats one of things I miss about a physical keyboard. The funny thing is I never used emulators until I got the X...lol

    Playing defense on Tecmo Bowl with touch screen only controls is an exercise in frustration....
