    I'm sure it won't take long for the hacker community to break the bootloader.

    I'm not so sure. Isn't this still an issue for the the Milestone (international version of the Droid) after nearly a year?

    At any rate, I'm glad I decided to stay with the EVO!

    From what I've read, it doesn't seem like it'll be all that easy to break if at all possible. I kept my evo, thanks.

    This is why I stuck with the Evo. I'm sure at some point it'll get broken, but by then I'll be able to upgrade possibly.

    Yeah... it may not affect many people but rooting and installing custom roms is a big thing for lots of people.
    Just look at XDA's roms. DamageControl ROM thread has 378,000+ views.

    It's a shame. I like Droid X's hardware a bit more than the Evo's... especially the GPU + screen.

    Yeah, that GPU would be very nice.

    I'm glad I didn't wait either...the good thing about the dev community is getting support once a carrier drops your phone.

    It's still a beast of a phone. To the average users, this means nothing.

    Personally I think they are both great phones. I don't know if I will root or not (still waiting on unrevoked), so that really isn't an issue for me right now.

    The real comparison is rate plans for the phones. A phone can be great, but if you can't afford the monthly bill what good is it? Now if the X was on Sprint I might switch to it (I'm still within my 30 days), but Verizon is expensive.

    Evo has front facing camera (I do use it), but X has better GPU and screen (I don't game but I'm a sucker for a good display). It's all in what you're gonna do from your phone.

    I had the EVO for 30-days. In my opinion the EVO is aesthetically amazing (I like rounded corners), has an amazing UI (Sense), can be rooted & ROM'd, has a kickstand (should be required on phones of this size) will only get better with updates, and once you get used to the size (in about 12 hours or less), I realized the benefits of messaging, video, and web browsing were worth it.

    I like the X because it's on my carrier of choice. I won't lie - I will miss Sense, and although there are apps/widgets in the Market that can substitute, non look as polished as HTC's. However, I believe the build quality will be amazing, the screen will be gorgeous (as is the EVO's), reports on battery life have been stellar, it sounds as if it might be as zippy as my Incredible (Sorry, but the EVO - regardless that it has the same processor - just didn't perform as quickly), and I can appreciate it's dedicated GPU. The main reason I am getting the X, is because I actually fell in love with the EVO's screen size, and want that experience back again.

    Nobody, in this forum, that has an EVO should feel like they are missing out. We X'ers and you EVO'ers have really made out perfectly in both cases.

    I.don't understand people like you. I mean you say that you wanted a evo and Droid x? I hear people asking if they should get a Verizon phone or a Sprint phone. Does that make any sense to anybody? I'm with Sprint for there service and nice plans, not really there phones. The phone make it the best thing to have, but its there service that matters. I wouldn't leave Sprint even if the Evo 2 went to verizon. I'd stay and support the Sprint for the quality of things there service provides. Everybody is all about the phones these days. If a carrier has a better phone then Sprint they wanna jump ship. Makes no god damn sense.

    yea. not to mention with the rate "better" phones are coming out. You'd be jumping carriers every couple months. LOL

    Always better to choose a service provider first (coverage in your area, price plan that works best for you), and then choose the phone.

    *unless the provider your looking at only offers crappy phones*. But with sprint and verizon they will always have a top andriod device, so you should choose on the carrier, not a certain phone.*
