Rationale I bought the DX2, rather than wait for the LG Revolution, so decided that getting a device mainly just for 4G for now, was not needed. The reason is regardless if you buy a 3G or 4G phone, it is apparently the same unlimited web package (confirmed by VZW) and should not change, unless grandfathering is not being honored. People buying 4G devices to "lock in" are apparently in the same boat as people that buy 3G devices- same package in contract. I choose device power, over an immature 4G network that is about a year away for my area. Review (not to rehash john's great review thread, but some perspective beyond my store overview) -FWIW & IMO + As with the demo unit, I have almost zero delay that others mention when waking the device using power or home key (nice having two options to wake). + The display is fantastic for a few reasons- even compared to the Charge and the Inc: 1. Colors look better. Cartoon amoled reds are gone 2. Sharp a$$ display and contrast is very good for non-amoled. 3. I could barely see the Inc and Charge in the sunlight, but the DX2 looks good- I have gone over a year with the Inc and got used to not using in the sunlight. This rocks. + 3.5mm sounds better than DX1, due to the Tegra 2 chipset having MUCH better audio features. + Device power-wise, games and emulators (N64 & PSX) play just as fast as on my gtablet (fantastic) and I LUV not having capacitive buttons to hit by accident while using a Vpad No comparison in speed with the TB and Charge. + Touch response impression is even better now, since using more. Luv that Swype built in and KB layout. + Root was nut-level easy and I recovered my apps from my Incredible's back-up. + Call quality makes me want to check if the Incredible speaker had mud in it. Very good and radio reception appears to be as good as the Droid X. + I am semi-stunned how well DX2 version of Blur works and I am having no UI lag issues. Will probably not bother with Launcher Pro. + As others have stated, Flash performs better and blows my Incredible away with browser as well. Added: Tested Youtube in browser and not the mobile app. + I like that internal and microsd storage is mapped as logical drives, rather than the PURE EVIL mobile storage mode that Honeycomb tablets use. + Easier for me to operate the device with one hand than the TB, Charge and Revolution. + Like other folks have mentioned, Netflix works SWEET! + The $200 (was $170 to upgrade) and $449 full price are very good price points for what you get. - No 4G, but as mentioned above, no harm no foul. - Wish the DX2 had more internal storage like the Rev, but I prefer the higher res display and especially the Tegra 2. - Speaker seems not as good as expected and the DX1 could get louder without getting muddy. Then again being too loud can hose a speaker anyway. FWIW, I give the DX2 a 9/10, when considering cost, features and performance. One Odd thing I also bought a belt case while in VZW, but whenever I put the device in the case, we would hear "Droid, Droid" within about two seconds. The device was locked each time. The sales persons could not figure it out and one had a DX1 that did not do this. We tried to figure out if there is some undocumented combo of buttons that may cause this, since it was little tight in the case. Whatever it is, the case not only wakes the display, but unlocks it and we hear "Droid, Droid", in the case. I returned the case on the spot. Ghosthunter material, or do one of you fine folks know what might cause this? Added: The magnets on the case and the horizontal position with the DX2 in the case may be the issue. The DX2 probably thinks it is being docked. Credit to mrfixitx.
