    wife is ditching the LG Ally, and Verizon is giving her option of either one of these as a replacement. besides the slide out keyboard, which would be a better choice?:thinking::thinking:

    The Fascinate has a better screen and a very iPhone-Meets-Android User Interface (UI). I dont know if the fascinate has/had the same GPS problems as the Captivate did, but that is something you will want to research.

    The Droid 2 has half-Blur (MotoBlur) which is more geared towards social media. It can be summed up as a Droid X-Lite (+keyboard). Also certain versions of the Droid 2 are GSM capable which will be useful if she is a traveller.


    edit:
    I just noticed that you HAVE a Droid X so you will already be familiar with half-Blur and I can assume that she has also had some experience with it to know whether or not she likes it??

    What are her preferences? "Better" is always highly subjective. It's highly unlikely that any of us have needs/wants perfectly in line with those of your wife.
