Which smart phone

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Ok so ive been doing alota research and am currently stuck between 3 phones. I dont usualy upgrade often but these phones are currently $50 bucks with my upgrade.

Im looking at the Droid x, Samsung Facinate, and Samsung continuum

Are the Hummingbird processors faster than the OMAP ones in the droid x. Im looking for a phone that will be able to handle multiple aps open and last a while. Im currently leaning towards the Droid X but as I know basicly nothing about phones any input is Helpfull

Why not the HTC Thunderbolt, or wait for the Samsung Droid Charge? Those have 4G LTE built-in, allowing you to achieve data speeds much higher than in 3G. Also, their hardware specs are very good.

IMO the Fascinate is one helluva deal. But price aside, I'd take the Droid X.

The Fascinate (as with all Galaxy S phones) is still a tough phone to beat. Once you root it (jailbreaking for Android), you can proceed to customize it however you wish. It's a great phone with still great hardware.

Ah, a Droid X? Well, surely there will be a Gingerbread update for it (leaks ahoy!) in the future. Enjoy your Droid.
