Ok, went to verizon. I'm up for the upgrade pricing. I can also get a free replacement on my BB 8330 (flashed with newest OS)

It's between the droid, droid x, and incredible.

Droid:
-cost me $50 less (not a huge deal) pos
-has a real keyboard pos

Droid X:
-enourmous neg
-$50 more than droid neg
-top of the line pos

Incredible:
-smaller than X pos
-$50 more than droid neg

Those are my only real issues/complaints with any phone. With that in mind, what does everyone think my best bet is? I only went in real quick to get pricing ideas. I still intend to go back and actually use all 3. probably do some reading tonight.

What are the forums for these that might have a thread about which might be best?

Also, they all have legit GPS right? The X showed that giant blue circle like my BB does, but i'm assuming that's only because I was inside with no GPS connection. It sounds ood, but one of the things I hate about my BB is that verizon locks the GPS out to only their VZ navigator and BB maps(which sucks).

between those 3, the X and the Inc are the superior phones based on specs. the droid runs a slower processor, about half as fast as the other 2. if you dont like the size of the X the incredible is the best choice since its superior when it comes to internals compared to the droid

I also installed the leaked Froyo update on my EVO. Damn it is fast now. Some nice upgrades as well. Some people are reporting some small issues. All I have had issues with is Flash based sites force close. It seems to be a issue because of the leaked Flash 10.1 fix I installed a few weeks back. Hopefully the Aug. 3rd OTA upgrade will fix the issue.

What do you mean the internals are better on the Incredible?


Just reread most of the thread. I'm leaning pretty heavy towards the X, but tomorrow I make my decision.

The x is a powerhouse in the graphics department too.

the internals of the incredible are better than the original droid. the droid x and incredible are more or less the same phones with different screens in both size and type.

and by internals i mean processor and such. its simply a newer phone so it uses better technology

you can get an incredible just as fast as a droid x last i heard, which both were backordered. and they didnt stop making the screen, htc simply looked into using a sony screen to help ease the backorders. seems most everyone is still getting amoled screens though, not the sony tft lcds

The guy at the store said the X was on back order till the 4th or 6th, can't remember. Not a huge deal at all.

X is slightly bigger physically.

They show it in one of the pictures you posted towards the beginning of the thread.

their own phones use super amoled, not standard amoled. the problem was they were slowing down amoled screens to make the super versions for their phones. thats where the problem came in.
