Very difficult to decide for me personally because the fascinate is looking like the the Galaxy S I wanted. Has LED Flash, which is the most imp to me. Now I just need confirmation that Bing is only an option and not default.

Which processor is better ? The 1ghz hummingbird on the fascinate or the Omap 1ghz under the hood of the droid X? Looking at all the videos on the fascinate and the X, The X seemed to be a lot snappier than the Fascinate but i guess when froyo gets installed on it , speed definitely  wouldnt be an issue.

X has a better CPU, but Galaxy S phones have better GPU.

 

The Galaxy S phones have PowerVR SGX 540 GPU which is twice as fast as the PowerVR SGX 530 used in the X. So the Fascinate will be better in gaming and maybe smoother in heavy UI elements.

 

TBH, the Galaxy S looks smoother to me than the X, but X's soft is not final.

And I've attached the launch package for the Droid X which show a bunch of it's specs.

Hope this helps you make your dicision.

Specs aside...

I see all three companies walking down the sidewalk: Verizon, Samsung, and Motorola. 

Samsung is right next to Verizon and Motorola, but they're holding hands, and Samsung isn't. 

Meaning.... VZW and MOTO for some reason get along great these days. Loyal to each other you could say.

I see better support on both sides where Samsung not so much. Could I be wrong? Sure, but just think about the future and what companies will stay loyal to carriers.

 

Motorizen!

Im not a big fan of samsung as they have a track record of not standing behind their phones for updates i mean look motorola is still pushing updates out to the droid and the cliq. But its a personal choice I like the X more but thats just me you have to go by what works for you
