    I have had an upgrade on my line since May. I like a lot of Androids from Verizon, notably the Droid X2 which my sister has and the Thunderbolt which my father has. I went to Best Buy last night to scope out prices. They also had the Samsung Fascinate (which is Verizon's equivalent to the Captivate, which I love,) and the Droid Incredible 2. Price really isn't a problem, as I'm willing to wait. I just need opinions on what kind of phone I should get.

    -I know the Fascinate and Droid X2 doesn't have a front-facing camera, which I don't like. I have friends and family over in Canada and I Skype with them frequently. I was kind of hoping I can get the Droid Incredible 2 or Thunderbolt because those are the two I like with a front-facing camera. Is it more of a novelty then a necessity, meaning with the size of the camera megapixel-wise, is it worth it to Skype with them from my phone or should I just keep using my laptop?

    -I have a big problem with touchscreens sometimes. When I had the MyTouch, my fingers were way too big and the keys were way too small. Same with the Optimus and the Transform was so slow I had to use the slide-out keyboard. If anyone has any of the phones I mentioned, how are the touchscreens, when it comes to typing? I've tried typing on the Thunderbolt and the Droid X2 and the screens were nice and big so I didn't have the problem. What about the Fascinate or the Incredible 2?


    ...I'm so sorry that I wrote a novel for an opinion but I wanted to make sure I get a good phone.

    My opinion, if in a 4g area, would be the Charge or Thunderbolt. The charge is similar to the fascinate but with the ffc you are looking for.

    The X2 is nice too but doesn't have the 4g radio.

    Don't forget, the Bionic is rumored to launch in the next few weeks too. It may be worth holding off for.


    Best of luck!

    I'd agree on waiting for the Bionic if money isn't a problem and your old handset isn't falling apart.If it's not all it built up to be, you can always get the Thunderbolt or the Charge.
