Which 3 Droid phones to get? - Page 2

post #11 of 22
In response to 4G:

IIRC the 4G data is going to be $50 a month compared to the current $30 a month w/ 3G. I really don't think it's worth paying +$20 just to have your webpages and apps download a little bit faster. Besides, most of the phones have Wi-Fi as well, and using that drains less battery, so it's probably best to utilize those airwaves if you're going to be centralized around one location most of the day.

It is still going to be better to have that option and make a choice when you understand everything and waiting just a few days isn't going to kill anyone.

Well then, it's a good thing that we are utilizing a factor in social communication called "opinions."

BTW HTC > Motorola
yeah but the htc phone is older, and all the other battery lives are so much better. I think I am gonna go with the X but I will have to look at it at the verizon store. Thanks to all that helped.

yeah like I only need maps, and facebook, and these are sometimes in desolate areas...so I doubt 4g will come in. Plus 30 dollars a month kills me enough..

I have the Desire HD and it's a fine phone. Reports of battery life issues have been largely addressed by a recent radio update. If I were buying today though I'd get a Nexus S and run Cyanogenmod 7 on it.

Sent from my performance enhanced Desire HD.

From most of the reviews I read its rated along the best Android phones, the original Desire had its problems, but the HD is just awesome. Luckily my user experience with it is flawless so far.

My thinking is Droid X right now or the Fascinate, but the new HTC phone might be worth the couple of days wait assuming the deal is still on then.

No there is not. There is a massive difference between droid and android. Droid is a name that Verizon paid George Lucas to allow them to use on some of their phones that run the android OS. To say they are the same is to say a Windows 7 disc, a Dell laptop running windows 7, and an HP laptop running windows 7 are all the same . Might sound like semantics, but it can get confusing fast if you don't use the right terms.

Unfortunately for him, the DHD is GSM only, and GSM that is incompatible with US carriers at that.

I just got a Droid X for Christmas and it has been a revelation for me. Best piece of tech I have owned in a long time and I probably haven't even scratched the surface of what it can do. Set it up on a car dock for turn by turn navigation, works fantastic. The bigger screen makes websites easily viewable. I can actually navigate OCN by touch without zooming in. I can even read and touch an individual name in the members list on the home page. It is the first phone (including an iPhone) where I felt I could actually leave my laptop at home on a trip if I wanted. I think screen size has a lot to do with it, but Android has been a pleasant surprise. I also use daily a "new" HTC Touch Pro 2 (winmo 6.5) that my work furnishes for me. It is crazy how much better this Droid X is than that phone. I have already put all my work stuff on the Droid X and only use my work phone for making calls, that's it.

I'm running Apex 1.3.1 as well. For me though, it's extremely glitchy...I believe it's that adwlauncher.

I'm really waiting for blackdroid to release something that works. Looks like he's going to be the first to release a 2.3 rom for the X, I can't wait!
