x wins on internet browsing and texting.

Internet browsing: has a bigger screen and you can type easier

Texting: Has swype so you can type easier and keys are bigger. also has a stronger connection

Same battery life

i would go with the X also. The UI's are a little different however. Blur vs. Sense. Both good choices nevertheless

The X has a dedicated graphics chip. The Incredible does not.

The Incredible fits in your pocket and it's easier to install custom ROMs on it than it is the X.

Hope this helps!

X: Larger screen, swype, faster hardware, runs a relativly close to stock version of motoblur, very locked down.

Incredible: More compact, runs sense (good or bad, I hate it, others love it), and much easier to flash.

I don't remember if the Incredible getting a Froyo update or not, but it is very easy to just install Froyo on there yourself, so the Android version is pretty much moot unless you don't want to root your phone.

Yep. Moot. The way I used it means "irrelevant."

It's not too hard to root. There are a lot of different howtos and methods online for you to try.

It is somewhat similar to jailbreaking, but it won't make the phone slower unless you run a lot of apps that will slow the phone down. Also it should be faster because it doesn't involve as much hacking as jailbreaking an iOS device.

Hope that helps!

having friends that use both phones i prefer the Incredible. i dont like the size of the X. i have the EVO which fits perfectly in my hands but the X is taller than the evo so it makes it a little weird. but it's too big for me and i have to stretch my thumb all the way just to reach the top screen and i dont like the physical buttons on the front of the X either .

I don't have my Incredible yet.
I helped someone at school root their's way back when the Incredible came out, but I don't remember which method we used. Sorry...
I am sure that one of the

I am planning on buying an Incredible when my family gets a family share plan though.

You may be able to ask the people in the Droid Incredible Group for help though. They are bound to know more than I do.

Or use terribly buggy Alpha-stage ROMs. I'll wait for verizon to push it out, unless they delayed the release date again...

But... I was talking about the Incredible... Are they getting 2.2 soon? Froyo runs pretty well on the Incredible.

It makes sense that Froyo runs well on the Incredible then... lol...
