Droid Incredible Vs. Droid X

It's time to upgrade my Verizon phone but I can not decide if I want the Droid Incredible by HTC or the Droid X by Motorola. Cost is not a deciding factor because Verizon is offering me both phones for the same price; $100.

I am turning to my C5 family for opinions.

If you love your iPhone, or your 4G Evo, that's great, keep it to yourself. I get a 22% discount on my bill through my employer so I am not interested in switching to AT&T, Sprint, ETC.

Thanks

Doesn't one have a slider keyboard and both have virtual keyboards? I think there's a difference in camera resolution too... Guess it's up to you depending on what's most important.

If it comes down to slider vs. virtual keyboard, get the slider.
I have the Samsung Behold and hate the touch everything. Granted, it's pressure-sensitive touch, but it's still pretty bad.

I've been looking too.. Son has the X, told me to get the Droid2, said it's a better version of the x. Looking again I think both of the above are virtual. I like my slider.

Neither has a slide out key board. The original Droid and Droid 2 have slide out key boards. The X and Incredible have virtual keyboards and the X has swype feature.

They both have an 8 mega pixel camera & 720P video.

The specs are pretty similar. One difference is The Incredible has a 3.7 inch display and the X has a 4.3 inch display

Droid 2 is a better version of the original Droid. The Droid X is an all-new phone.

I probably wasn't much help, I voted for both!

There's another HTC droid coming, by the way-- should be right inbetween the Incredible and X size wise... same body as the EVO 4G... that and the Samsung Galaxy S variant...

There are more differences under the hood. The X has a faster GPU and CPU than the incredible. The incredible comes with HTC sense which is just fabulous where as the X comes with a toned down version of motoblur. The Droid 2 is spotted just below the X with a smaller screen, slider keyboard and slightly slower processor.

All will receive Android 2.2. The incredible and the Droid 2 already have it but the X will follow shortly in September.

If you can wait a few months then 4G Android phones will be out this year to match Verizon's roll out of LTE.

Anything you want to know Android... I can help ya out.

There is an underlying flaw in the baseband which causes the phone to search for a stronger tower when it isn't necessary. It has since been corrected in an update. Also, root and get setcpu and you are golden. If you don't watch it the incredible will sync a shit load of data in the background. I fixed it on day one nd I cannuse my Incredible for three days without a charge.

iPhone is a typical Apple product is all I will say.

Thanks for the information.

So if you didnt have either phone at the moment and you didnt want to wait, you'd go with X correct?

I'd much rather buy one of these phones now while I can get them for $100 instead of waiting for a phone that will be slightly better and cost more money.

verizon told me that droid 2 and the x has the same guts, 2 has the slide key board, and x has a better camera. I just upgraded to the x for 99.00.

That is correct. I would go for the X. Bigger screen works wonders. I am 25 so it has nothing to do with eye sight. It just fits me better and is easier to see stuff on a 4" screen.

I have the Incredible now. The Droid x wasn't out yet. If I was to buy right now I would go with the Droid x. Has a few better features.
Plus they are the same price.

I think they both have motoblur... if so...

The droid x has a mini hdmi port on it as well, i believe... not sure if the incredible does. not sure if both have received the latest OS (2.2) either. Pretty sure the incredible has it now, not sure about the X.

Incredible is an HTC phone therefore it has HTC Sense which is 100x better than the original motoblur and notably better than the current version. Having played with the X I will say that blur is significantly toned down and very mild.

Personally, I'd root the X and throw a custom ROM on there. I do think the X is a better choice especially if someone is male and not... small.

The original motoblur is like a cross between a pile of dung, richard simmons and the worst of paris hilton.

I do love my iphone, but I hate AT&T and starting to hate Apple. So I'm in the same boat. Was thinking about the Incredible as well. Haven't checked out the X yet, but the Incredible looks like a good alternative to to the iphone.

The demo I looked at was quick and had an easy navigation control.

If I am correct the driod X has the new faster processor in it. When i got my droid 2 the droid X was coming out 2-3 weeks later. I hated my self for not waiting.

Now that the new OS version is out and it supports flash 10.1 you can play certain web games now. They play better on droid X as the new processor is faster.
