The Merge, but I got my Fascinate on launch and idk what they did in terms of my contract so I have no idea when I'm even eligible for an upgrade. The Fascinate is my baby for quite awhile, whether I like it or not. (But the novelty hasn't worn off yet.)

I picked up the Fascinate a few weeks ago, and returned it for the DX. Now I am a point where I am unsure if the DX is really going to carry me where I want to go (buyers/exchangers remorse). So I am taking my DX back to BBMobile and will ride it out a few weeks to see what comes of the Dinc HD. I have high hopes, but realistically Verizon would delay/kill/or it was never to be.
I have the same question as you, what is worth getting out of the current bunch? If the Fascinate had Froyo 2.2 already I would be more inclined, but waiting for patches (not just the OS update) to fix a phone that should not take forever and a day. Verizon needs to keep their phones in lock step and not let this lag behind.

-I missed a very important call in the morning because the phone was acting like it was in airplane mode (missed a bunch of calls and couldn't send receive texts either) although it most certainly was NOT on airplane mode. *This is an extremely rare glitch that I have not seen in this forum or most others, it could possibly be just my phone.
-Although the GPS actually isn't that horrible it still managed to lose me more than on my previous phone (moto Droid missing froyo)
-Crappy battery life...I've heard that this phone has better battery life than the INC and I've heard of people being able to go two days without a charge; I still find I have to plug it in at least twice a day just to avoid a dead battery. *I have not rooted and debloated or debinged it either because I'm still in the trial period and am still considered trading it back. I've read that the rooting and debloating helps extend the battery life by aprox 70%
If this was all fixed with froyo I might be more tempted to stay, but I feel like Samsung's reputation for their long delayed updates combined with the feeling that Verizon isn't pushing this phone that hard (no commercials or specials like INC and D2) makes me feel like it's going to get major neglect in the update department...

I'm curious to see what Samsung has up it's sleeve for the Nexus Two. Still a big rumor but it might be cool. I'll hold on to the Fascinate for a while though. It's a great little phone that does everything i need it to. I'm waiting on Froyo but hoping we get Gingerbread too. If the Moment is still getting patches a year later I think we will too.
My next big purchase will probably be the Tab. Hoping that WiFi one is real because that would be cool.

Oh I thought of two more: 1) missed a ton of bank account balance update emails thanks to gmail "forgetting" to sync even though sync was "enabled" and i was getting email in my OWA inbox... (a reboot magically fixed it) 2) tons of doubled up SMS messages on the sending and receiving side.
Sorry to turn this into a wine and cheese fest, but. Hell, no i'm not, the fascinate has a ton of glitches. Some of them huge. I am pretty sure I am either talking myself out of the fascinate or out of android in general (blackberry, for all it's gripes, did NOT let this **** happen).

I'm just waiting for the Iphone to be on Verizon!
I had an Iphone years ago with AT&T and in my area they just do not get very good service. I hate to say this but the Iphone was the only phone that I did not have to completely redo the phone and os and change everything to make it run right.
I was so sick of Blackberry and all the battery pulls and the network blocking up so I switched to Droid X and after the 2.2 update it got really buggy for me. I then switched to a Fascinate which I like pretty well. I don't like the lag I get sometime but nothing I can't deal with. I'm just tired of getting phones that require all of this tweeking just to make it right.

I don't have the money to switch phones until I upgrade anyway. I had to get a new contract with this puppy so that means I'm not eligible until maybe the summer of next year. Not really thinking about it. I just rooted mine and am waiting for ROMs with 2.2.
