    yeah I have the droid 1 now and I've seen the Droid X (it is a huge phone) are there any significant tech differences

    the droid 1's keyboard sucks

    I was just stuck with the same decision. I ended up with the droid 2. Droid x is too big and doesn't have a physical keyboard ( i hate onscreen keyboards but thats just me). And i don't really see a need for a high def video recorder on a cell phone. I've had my droid 2 for about a month and love it.

    I vote Incredible, it usually beats both in benchmarks tests and has the highest marks of all devices in linmark. Same hardware wise, just not as huge screen as X.

    I also have a Droid 1, I would go with the Droid 2 first then the Incredible, then the X. To me the X is too big of a phone. I like having a physical keyboard.

    I got a Droid X a few weeks ago. I absolutely love it.

    The size doesn't really bother me. It easily fits in my pocket. Since it's pretty thin, there's not a big bulge. Also, because it has a big ass screen, you get a big ass keyboard.

    You really can't go wrong with either of them. I think it ends up being about personal preference--Do you want a physical keyboard or not?

    cant go wrong with either of them. get the droid 2 if you need a physical keyboard. with the droid x i simply use the swype function and works perfectly and faster for me..

    I got the Droid X and it owns, people say that is too big is stupid. I used to have a LG dare and i could always feel it in my pocket, but the Droid X doesnt feel like its there because its very thin. Ive had my share of phones, i used to have a Iphone and the Droid X is 10x better.

    Love my droid X. I definitely dont think its too big. I've gotten used to it. Now when i pick up a 3.7" screen phone they look sooooooo small. the screen seems tiny to me. The incredible is also a good phone. It all just comes down to preference. Key board or no keyboard. screen size and whether you want HTC Sense or not.

    IMO Just go with the Droid X, same price and better phone.
