    Dropped by my Verizon Store this afternoon to have the resident screen protector "put it oner" change my protector which has been on since release day and had more than its share of scratches. While waiting my turn I watched 3 unrelated customers return Droid X's and exchange for Incs. I listened as each one told the reps that the phone was too big, wouldn't fit in their pocket or was just too hard to hold. These were your normal, non power user, just want i phone I don't have to lift weights to carry kinda guys. Two males and a female. What really surprised me was that they were willing to wait 5-7 days for Verizon to send them the exchange. After the third one finished it was my turn. I asked the rep if that was unusual, three exchanges in less than half an hour. He said they take back five or six Droid X's a day and they are always exchanged for Incs. He also said he personally was writing seven new Inc orders a day and people don't complain about not getting it right away "because they heard it is better than the iPhone".

    All of this is anecdotal. I just thought it was pretty interesting to hear what was happening in the "real world" or at least this small segment of it. Oh, and I forgot how really great my Inc screen is after three months of residue build up that just won't wipe clean after a while.

    I am sending my DX back to and switching back to my Dinc. The DX is a good phone but something about the DX just doesn't do it for me. While the screen is large it just isn't as good as my Dinc. I like the sense better too.

    Interesting story. I personally think the Dx is way too big.

    And I didn't know Droid Xs were male and female. I guess when the have babies they're lowercase xs,

    Well obviously he made a typo, there was one Droid Xx and two Droid Yx's.

    LoL , I would not send my Incredible back to get the DX ,The DX isn't as big as I thought it would be , however I like the features the Incredible has plus the amoled screen.After the update it will have the wifi hotspot and 720 recording. I get a good signal with the incredible now at first it was a little weaker of signal but now its the same as my other phones where/are. I do have the DX and its a great phone to ,I just have not had it as long as the incredible.To me tho the incredible is the perfect size when out and around town and can be clipped inside or outside of a pocket.The DX is kinda bigg to be inside of my jeans pocket and I dont wear tight jeans or really baggy jeans I wear normal fitting jeans , LoL .The DX fits in my big cargo side pocket just fine.there is nothing wrong with the DX its just bigger (not really overly big) I wouldnt get rid of it now either ,had the option to upgrade another phone with the DX and I did and no regrets on doing that.I got the best of both Now a perfect phone to casullly carry(D-INC) and a bigger phone when I want the bigger screen to watch stuff(DX) , lol

    I've got an upgrade coming in January, since one of my parents was nice enough to let me use their's back in May. I love my Incredible, but I'm guessing that HTC's faster version of the Evo will be out on Verizon by then!

    Also, am I the only person who's somewhat intrigued by the Windows 7 mobile OS? I know this is an Android forum, but I think I'm definitely going to have to check it out once those phones hit the retail market!

    Just to play devils advocate, there are currently 1,015 reviews on Verizon's website for the Droid X, and the average rating Is 4.5 stars.

    I personally think both phones are awesome and I had a hard time deciding which to keep.

    x2 on that Cory. If having both were an option me thinks it would be nice to have that big screen and a few of the other features of the Droid X.

    So what is going to happen when the Samsung Fascinate comes out??? Will people jump to that? Dunno if I should wait for that....or go Inc tomorrow......I think I love the HTC Sense and lil widgets on the Inc, but the Samsung is nice! The verizon version will be the only one with a flash on the camera and it will be nice! eeekkkkkkkk

    No interest what-so-ever in Windows 7 Mobile. After the mess they made with WM simply not worth the time.

    Having had the Vibrant for a week, that is also a tough decision. I personally think HTC Sense has an edge on the user interface, but the Galaxy has the best screen I've ever seen. It also looks good in the sun. The Incredible natively has Google apps built in, while the Fascinate has Bing (Boo!). We're pretty certain that you can manually add the Google apps, but shame on Verizon for not doing so to begin with. So it's really a matter of which phone speaks to your tastes. I should add that if Samsung doesn't fix these GPS issues soon, the Incredible becomes the obvious choice.

    Windows 7 was an incredible turnaround over Vista, and from what I've seen, the mobile platform is going to be pretty nice as well. I love Android and will probably end up sticking with it, but not before checking out Windows 7, mainly because of the monumental jump forward they've made. It looks fantastic, and their phones will definitely be the most powerful out there.

    Just my $.02.

    I am also not surprised. I was in a VZW store today and that Droid X is massive. I personally could not see myself using that phone.

    After using the X and trying out the Inc no way would I ever switch, Inc feels like a toy when you get used to the X.

    A friend of mine has the X he didnt want to wait for an inc. I have used it a fair bit and I much perfer my INC. I like sense and just dont dig blur.

    The X and the EVO both felt way to huge for me. I much prefer the Inc over them just based on size alone, not to mention anything else.

    I played with the evo, and didnt like it. Way to big. I don't like talking into the little iPad. I think the DINC is perfect.

    Strange, Verizon store in CO I visted a week ago had the opposite scenario. People jumping from HTC to the X.

    NOTE: I'm neutral still trying to figure out what to get when I upgrade from a Tour.

    It will be one of three; HTC, Droid X or the Samsun model (which I have not personally seen).
