The Fasinate has amazing hardware but is "crippled" by its software. But the galaxy S lineup phones are easily rootable and can run custom ROMs to fix that. (The GPS issues are fixable via a software update right?) The Droid X on the other hand has an encrypted bootloader but has a larger fan base (due to Verizon's heavy advertisement for the phone). Which phone do you think has more POTENTIAL in the long run? Both phones currently run Android 2.1 Personally, my DX is having a lot of issues and I'm looking to switch to either a new DX or the Fascinate. Link to similar thread in Droid X's forum.
