I've had the original Droid for about 10 months now... still love it.
If I were upgrading I would probably go with the X. Although the Samsung looks interesting.
How is that version of the keyboard better than the normal android one? From what I understand, you have to swype over every letter in the word you're typing, so how is that any faster than just hitting the letters, since you have to go to them anyway? Or is that not how it works
I would think if it needs to take a guess at what word you're going for, it would screw up quite a bit (due to it picking the wrong word or me not hitting the letters correctly)
I like the X... Once you get used to the swype typing, it is much easier and faster than a flip out keyboard.
Other than that, love everything about it. Wifi hotspot isn't too bad, handy in a pinch. Perfect phone size. Noticeably smaller than Droid X and thinner than Droid 2. Give it a look.
About a month ago I got a Droid X and my wife got a Droid 2. She got the droid 2 because she wanted a physical keyboard. After using swype on my X she now wishes she would have gotten an X. I've been happy with everything about the X besides the wait. It took me awhile to get it but they have the 2 in stock. My buddy has the incredible and it's nice as well. I don't believe swype is available on the Incredible though.
My husband and I each got Incredibles back in June, and we both love them. I wanted a physical keyboard, but have gotten used to having it all on-screen - the apps are just awesome. Battery life leaves a little to be desired.
Battery life is weak on nearly all these devices.
This. Completely worth the $3. Also fun annoying my wife with Android Light Saber.
Just a question for those that also use the ESPNRadio and iHeart Radio apps - anyone else having problems with them recently? ESPNRadio cuts out on me every 20 seconds or so, and I can't get iHeart Radio to play at all.
To the person that asked about games: Angry Bird, Bonsai Blast, Shot 3, Unblock Me and if you like poker, Live Holdem'
Droid 2, didn't want a physical keyboard. Droid X, too big but darn cool. So I settled on the Droid Incredible after upgrading from the Droid Eris. Best phone I've ever had without a doubt.
ShapeWriter for Android is available for Droid users if you want the swipe typing. I highly recommend it. It's been bought and removed from the market, so you must go here. Get a bar scanner app and scan the QR code to get the app on the phone.
