    Hello, my name is Abraham, I'm pretty new to the forums so please forgive me if this is in the wrong section and for any grammar errors.

    I was one of the many who got the original Motorola Droid earlier this year, it's a great phone aside from a few bugs and lag.

    After playing around with my friends Droid X, I'm not sure if I can resist upgrading to it, but is it really worth it? I'm scared that in another couple of months there will be a bigger and better one out.

    So I have a few questions for you guys:

    1. Have you heard anything about a new Android phone? (I know about the Droid 2)

    2. Have you upgraded from the original Droid to the Droid X, or do you own the Droid X? Do you have any problems with it; anything you wish was different? Any bugs, lag? etc.

    This is a huge help to me guys, I really appreciate input.

    Im pretty much a total n00b too, but if your scared of a new phone coming soon, your going to live the rest of your days cowering in a corner clutching that droid.

    There will always be something bigger and better 'just around the corner'.

    Look at your phone, then the X. Does the X DO something more than you need that the Droid doesnt do?

    Now if you have the cash, by all means, buy shiny things every so often.

    I am going to wait for a full HSPA+ phone and just pull the dam trigger

    1. There is ALWAYS a new phone coming out. In fact, Motorola has already announce an End of Life date for the Droid X, I think it's March '11. Just decide when you want a new phone, then get the best phone available that meets all your criteria, and buy it. Otherwise, you'll keep waiting for the Next Best Thing.

    2. Nope, but I just bought a Droid X (still waiting for it to ship), moving to it from my current iPhone 3Gs. Can't answer the rest of your questions about it since I don't have it yet.

    I've had a droid since last year and I just got my X in the mail yesterday. I have been playing with it non stop. It is definitely an upgrade over the regular droid. It is noticeably smoother and less buggy. The UI is nicer and has more options than before. The biggest difference to me was obviously the screen. Side by side the X is 10x better imo. Makes web browsing on a phone much more enjoyable. The HDMI out is a cool feature and the camera is better and much more fluid. My droid 1 was rooted, overclocked, and tweaked to be as fast as it could but the bone stock X has it beat hands down. Like others said, there is always a bigger and better coming. The X will hold me over for a while though.
