I am looking for my first Droid. Right now I have a Kin TWOm Feature phone & I have been through 3 of these in 1 month. verizon has given me an option out so I am going with a Smart Phone but which one.

Now I dont care about the keyboard what I want is the best of the 2. Best screen, best audio, best video & Pictures & which one honeslty will be the top dawg for games.

I know nothing about phones so I need your help. I want to order tonight. Verizon said hands down "Samsung Fascinate"

By the way both phones are $50.00

Is there a neither option or is that all you can get? Anyways out of those two the facinate is the obvious choice, nicer screen, bigger dev community and it has a DAC in it so better sound.

its the only options that are within $50.00 I didnt even want to spend any money on the phone. There is a droid pro, Ally then there is the more expensive phones.

I really cant afford to spend alot on a phone. What would you recommed then if not out of these 2.

I'm not sure about your carrier (as I'm in australia and we have a vastly different setup) but the HTC desire/incredible line have some nice phones in them, which will perform just as well as the two phones you listed as well as having a much larger dev base(there are many many roms available for my HTC desire as an example). Just a suggestion if its an option, the facinate (well, galaxy S... I don't get why they rename them over there) still is a nice phone and will work just fine.

Ive never had a phone before so this is my first phone so im sure someone like myself will drool over the Galaxy S. Im used to having junk flip phones or what ever. Right now I have a Microsoft Kin TWOm & the phone sucks hard. 3 in a month is horrible. I just started a new job & I am behind in my bills as it is so I dont want to grab a 200.00 iphone 4 or something in that price range when im already behind.

As it is now im selling my 360 to buy a phone.

Go with the Droid X over the samsung. I have verizon at the moment and have played around with pretty much every Droid phone they released since the original droid. The droid X just feels a lot more solid in the hands. Out of all the galaxy S phones in the US I have to say the fascinate is one of the worst ones.

The droid X and the other droids OTHER then the Droid 2 are 150+ right now like I said I cant afford them because I was laid off for 4 months & way behind on bills. I dont want to rack up another bill right now.

I was trying to stay on more of a budget but it doesnt levae many choices

(All within Price range)

Droid 2
Droid Pro
Samsung Fascinate
LG Ally
LG Vortex

then you got phones like the Blackberry's which I dont want, HTC Imagio (Which Verizon said sucks), then all the rest are 150+ which right now I know it sounds stupid but I need to catch up on bills first before I go that far.
