Re: Droid x

its an EVO minus the 4G and additional storage. the included 16gb card is nice though.

If you want to pay through the roof on monthly charges...be my guest. Verizon is known to nickle and dime there users. Looks to be a nice phone, but the hotspot feature is $20 a month, capped at 5GB, and 5 cent a MB after that. Sprints Evo is $30 a month, Unlimited Data and no charges afterward. I feel paying $10 more for unlimited is worth it, that combined with a almost 30-40 difference in month charges.

Thats just me.

Re: Droid x

No front facing camera or HTC Sense, if you like HTC Sense that is.

Re: Droid x

It all depends. Evo is slightly cheaper (plan), but with that said, im sure the Droid X is way more powerful. It has a better processor (face it guys, qualcomm always sucks) and a dedicated gpu.

Oddily enough, i think the evo's aesthetics are well enough worth keeping it. To me, it looks way better and also has that kick stand that i didnt think i'd make so much use of lol. It really is an awesome phone by design if not by hardware (and battery life )

Re: Droid x

Droid X: 1ghz TI OMAP is better than snapdragon, slightly higher resolution, not capped at 30fps, larger battery with better life (most likely), 3 microphones, 8gb of onboard storage plus 16gb memory card, probably better build quality with less defects. i also want to say video camera quality will be better, but not sure.

EVO 4G: 4G capable, front facing camera, you get more with sprint plans, you pay less with sprint, kickstand!, htc sense enhancements

Most important to me is service/plans. I prefer Sprint and I love what HTC does via software, so I prefer my EVO. IMO it's not a game changer... i'm not leaving sprint after all these years just for the Droid X. Maybe when they come out with something more beastly. Anyway, both great phones, i don't think you'd be dissatisfied either way.

Re: Droid x

For what? Just because it released later? There is nothing better on that phone. Anyone who jump ship is just a person who want's the latest shit. You are losing alot of features jumping to that phone from the Evo.

And the hacking community is mainly on sprint. Just think.

Camera quality on the Droid X isn't better -

Not a fanboi but it's clear the HTC EVO 4G is the more superior phone.
