Free Droid X or wait for Bionic or Atrix?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I can get a free Droid X with a new contract (deal from a friend). I'm on ATT right now and I was wondering if I should get the Atrix right now or wait for the Bionic since it seems to be the most anticipated dual core phone.

Doesn't really mean much if all you said is you hate the phone so he shouldn't get it. It's a large phone, but it works for me since I have big hands. Also it's on VZW and depending where he's at and how AT&T is in his area he might want to stay with them. If VZW is doing good for you and you absolutely want to upgrade now I'd definitely go with the Droid X. It's a great phone, the size being on the bigger side I think is a positive and if it's 'free' then that makes it at a great value.

thanks rep+

There's nothing wrong with my service with ATT here in southern california. The Droid X is just...free lol

I guess my biggest fear is being left behind when all the new dual cores come out.

To be honest, I highly doubt you're going to be left behind. The Droid X's specs are more than good enough for anything that's out today. If ya wanna wait for the Bionic and go with that I wouldn't blame you, because it looks like it will be a great phone, but 1ghz single core phones are still really good.

I had the LG Ally for a few months, had lots of problems with it locking up when multi tasking. I upgraded to the droid x and am very happy with it. I bluetooth stream pandora to my truck stereo while having GPS running at the same time. Receive phone calls without problems. Old phone would crash. I love that its large, I do a lot of web browsing for work through the phone and it increased my productivity a lot.

Seriously? Just wait dude. The Droid X is an ok phone. For the record, I swap phones like socks. A phone typically only spends 2-3 months with me before I sell it and get another. And out of the 6 phones I've had over the last 14 months, the Droid X wasn't anything special. If you just want to save a few bucks now, then by all means take the free phone.

But, if you want the latest and greatest, get the Bionic or Atrix. Many people will tell you that "the latest and greatest" is always replaced in a couple of months. While that may have been true in the 2H of 2010 with each new phone boasting the same processors with only 100-200MHz difference in clock speed and different UIs slapped on top, the difference in between the Droid X and the newer Bionic and Atrix are huge.

For starters -- dual-core. *HUGE* potential increase. With the newer dual-core processors comes new GPUs which will give you better graphics as the new games come along.

As I see it, there's really no reason for the X unless money is really an issue. If performance is even a small consideration, get one of the newer devices.

As for Verizon or AT&T -- it largely depends on coverage in your area. What good is a smartphone without a usable signal?

Don't get the Droid X. Wait, there are so much better phones coming out. I have the Epic 4g and HTC Evo and I would trade both for the Bionic coming out. The Atrix is also a great phone! The wait will definitely be worth it my friend.

You will be investing in old technology, when in a few months you will regret it with how in depth you get into rooting and modding your phone.
