Which phone is better?
I like the hardware and design of the DX better, but gun to my head I'd force myself to go with the Incredible. The locked bootloader on the X is a dealbreaker for me. If you don't care about rooting and custom ROMs, then I think the DX is a much nicer phone.
This might get moved to the Lounge, BTW. I'm not sure why you posted it in the Droid 1 forum.
My vote would be for the Droid X. From what I understand the omap processor is superior to the snapdragon that the HTC is carrying. Plus I prefer the screen on the Droid X over the AMOLED screen that the Inc has.
The X has a much better GPU (2x fps on 3d benchmarks), but has a locked bootloader so custom ROMS will be difficult to make (the Milestone has one too and it has been cracked though). The Incredible has a slightly better camera from teh comparisons I have read. What it really comes down to is what form factor you like. Big screen or smaller screen. Personally I would go with the X
If you live in a low signal area, definitely go with the Motorola. 'Nuff said.
I noticed no differenc in signal at my cabin where the coverage is very spotty between my droid and my wife's Inc. Maybe the X is better.
If you want small go with the Dinc, if you like a big screen and have a large pocket go with the X. They are both good phones but if you go with the dinc get the 1750 battery.
Me, I am keeping the droid until something way better comes along. I like my rooted droid better than the Inc. anyway. (but I almost did pick up the )
I would say get the X.
Personally if I was not able to get a Droid 1 with a physical keyboard, I would go for the X before any of the other choices. Though it cannot run custom roms at this point, chances are the bootloader will be hacked sooner or later. Either way, I don't think no custom roms is a dealbreaker for me. The android os has so much ability even from stock. You can still root it and run root applications I think (if I am wrong please correct me), when the bootloader gets hacked you can just be happy that your phone has that much more potential (=
PS: I really like the big screen on the X so that would be my main reason for preferring the X. But maybe you would prefer a smaller screen so just keep in mind what size u want the screen to be.
Go with the X. When OCd, the OMAP processor shines. If I were you, and rooting was in the future of the phone you got, wait for Verizon's version of the Galaxy S. It's name escapes me, but it will be amazing, complete with AMOLED and the Hummingbird processor that beats the OMAP by a good bit when overclocked.
If you can wait long enough, I suggest waiting for the 2 Ghz OMAP processor that is due out on a Motorola device (can't name it) late this year or early next year. Stock, it will be four times more powerful than the Droid, twice as powerful as the X and Droid 2 and that's without OCing it.
it will also run the next iteration of Android after 2.2 much better than the Droid X or any device due before the Holidays this year.
Depends on what you like really, some like Sense UI and some dont. I personally can't stand it when it comes to bugs, so whatever isn't Sense is what I would go with. Both are good phones though.. and pretty fast at that. Also have to take in account the size of both phones... it's like night and day.
They haven't given up on the X yet as far as getting custom ROMs on it yet, have they? They will find a way to get the eFuse software cracked and it should be alright after that, I'm hoping.
You mean SuperAMOLED
They are switching the incredible to lcd anyway, so thats a non issue going forward
It is Sony's new Super-LCD which is just as good as AMOLED indoors and brighter for better viewing outdoors. (SAMOLED is better than both)
