    I received my X yesterday and coming from a Dinc I am very impressed! I thought the Dinc was awesome but wow this phone after a full day is far superior to the Dinc IMO. I thought sense was good but the UI in the X has some nice features in which the Dinc did not have but don't get me wrong the incredible is a great device just loving the X much better.

    Glad you like it. I was comparing my sister's dinc to my x. The dinc is indeed one amazing animal and I miss the sense ui. I bought beautiful widgets to give me that feel. :)

    Enjoy your phone.

    yeah i had a similar experience the other day. when i brought my droid x home my brother wanted to see how much bigger it was than what he had. he whipped his dinc out of his pants and then we proceeded to line our devices up side by side and man what a difference it was. its funny though how even though there's such a size difference, they both do all the same things, just that mine gets the job done better

    Beautiful widgets and ADW Launcher create an amazing experience on this phone. Smooth enough to satisfy the discerning crowds :)

    it depends on your perspective. i had my sister's incred. in my one hand and my x in my other hand. to me, there was a considerable size difference.

    I think when you hold both of them the same time you can definitely tell a difference, but if you just hold the X and don't compare it then it feels fine, but switch back to the Incredible and it will feel tiny.

    I miss Sense too. :( But that being said, I love my X. I'm so impressed.

    Congratulations on everyone getting their phones!

    I am a tiny person, 5'2 and I have very tiny hands...

    The INC looks small in my hands lol.

    The X looks huge in my hands. (WIN).

    I see a huge difference.

    My X has absolutely no hardware issues...but I am having really hard time adjusting to it...Here are my examples...

    1. Size is the biggest... I CANNOT use Droid X with one hand...I hold all my phones with right hand and have them rest on my pinky...well with the X, I can't do that. It feels unstable and if I try, I cannot reach the menu/home buttons. I have average size hands and long fingers...so I am really bummed.

    2. I miss Sense features... ie Copy/Paste in browser and messages (particularly text selection). The stock Android way is very inaccurate.

    3. I miss the trackpad. I do a LOT of browsing/posting from phone, thus editing text makes it harder. I cannot get the darn cursor in the right place.

    4. For some reason the auto focus on camera on X is harder than on Inc...I hold the camera button half way, wait for it to focus, then take a picture, but it still comes out blurry.

    5. I also do have the wifi going on/off randomly. Didn't have that on Inc.

    6. I also feel that Incredible was a bit smoother in overall performance.

    Those are my main issues...On the other hand, the call quality on Droid X is outstanding...calls have been crystal clear. I am really having hard time making up my mind... I am thinking of may be getting an Incredible off ebay or craigslist...and then decide...Either resell Inc or return the X. Argh!!!! I hate being in this position! :(
