    I've been wanting to purchase an Android phone and I want to buy one that I will be happy with. I currently can get the Droid X or the Droid 2 for $199 with my Verizon upgrade, and I'm just wondering, which one would be better for me? I talk on the phone about 30min - 2hrs a day, depending on the situation. I am going to be on Facebook mainly throughout the day. And I text all day, at least a couple hundred texts a day. I want to know which one has better features, last longer based on my predicted usage, and the opinions on each phone.

    Hopefully this is in the right spot!

    Where i am told
    Just as anyoen will tell you going out to the stoor and playing with the phones is the best option to see which you like the best.

    I personally don't need a slide out keyboard and so i love my DX not to mention its screen is large enough to really get into the use of 2.2 FroYo with flash, i use mine for everything you could think of, including emulators.

    Battery will be about the same for each depending on how much you use it for. i have mine going on a day and half with regular wifi use and only at 60%

    The best thing to do is just search around on these forums, every quesiton you asked i have seen talked about in a few different forums.

    Knowlage is power

    I have been drooling over the Droid X although I will probably get the Evo myself.

    The Droid 2 is also very impressive. I don't think you can go wrong with either one.

    Want a keyboard, Droid 2

    Dont want one, X.

    The X does some things better. The Droid 2 does some things better. But decide if you want a keyboard or not first.

    The Droid 2 has better battery life. (the rated talk time for the Droid 2 is higher than the X: 480 min vs 575 min. Thats a 1 hr 40 min difference. And the Droid 2 ships with a smaller battery??) I believe the speaker is better on the Droid 2. Droid 2 has 2.2. already on the phone.

    The X has a better camera. The X has better video recording audio. The X might have better noise cancellation. I believe the X has better reception. The X has HDMI out that is being tweaked at this moment to work like the Samsung phones TV out: mirror image of the phone on the TV. (theres an app in the Market. It needs some bugs worked out but its a very nice first step)
