Droid X > Incredible

For those of you out there still trying to decide which phone to go with, it is becoming more and more apparent that the Droid X is a hands down winner.  I offer the following articles as proof.

 

Screen Replacement

 

No MotoBlue

 

Benchmark Video on YouTube

For this video, you can assume that the Incredible will have very similar, if not identical, results as the EVO.

Haha that's a good joke.

 

When your Motorola phone falls apart in a few months... you might have wanted the Incredible instead...

As far as durabillity, the Droid is a tank and I wouldn't expect the Droid X to be any different.  I'd be a lot more worried about an Incredible breaking than the Droid I'm using.  Not to mention the following, :smileywink:

The app is Quadrant Benchmark and performs a series of tests for the cpu and graphics.  Basically a test to see how your phone performs under various conditions.

ahhh...i actually almost downloaded it the other day (i look for very high rated apps only), but had no idea what any of it meant so i passed. the top for all run 2.2. does that have anything to do with the fact that they score higher? i have the incredible. i don't know much about phones....but i know this thing is blazing fast, takes amazing pics/video, and has a big enough screen while still not being a bulky phone. obviously phones will get better over time....but when you want faster and faster processors and bigger and bigger screens, then don't you just want an ipad at some point??? i'm just not sold on a screen that is a half inch larger if it makes the phone larger. i would love a front facing cam though!!!

Yeah, Froyo (Android 2.2) has a lot of speed enhancements and the score for the Incredible should jump up to where the Nexus One 2.2 is as it has similar hardware.  And note that the Shadow score is with only 2.1 so it looks like motorola made some serious enhancements under the hood.  Either that or the TI Omap processors are a lot better than the Snapdragons in the N1, Incredible, etc.

The shadow(moto x) isnt running 2.2 it is still 2.1 in the graph.

It shows speed and how well the phone runs. So pretty much once 2.2 hits the X it will blow the other phones away.

Yeah, the current score for the X (Shadow) is insane for a 2.1 device.  The Your Device line in that graph is my "not so stock" droid running Froyo.

Got a feeling once 2.2 hits unless you're a computer nerd and are trying to fly the space shuttle to the moon on the benchmarks created by these phones it's not going to be AS big of a deal as people think. To the normal, or slightly advanced user these speeds won't be too far apart to notice. 

I think it's going to all come down to preference of User Interfaces, and product loyalty. 

At least till the end of the year when Gingerbread comes out, and newer phones keep the crazy pace of boosting performance!

cant wait...!

i agree dabu. i'm just a guy who likes cool phones. to me, my droid inc is blazing fast....opening apps or surfing (wifi or 3g). i doubt i'd notice much??? but when you KNOW it "could" be faster....you still GOTTA have it....lol.

Ditto on that phone. For me it's like I can never have enough cell phones. I must have at least 2 cell phones running.

HTC's build quality is very sub par compared to motorola's I mean just look at the EVO. The droid was like a brick and super durable making it last much longer then most HTC phones

I would hope the Droid X would be equal and should be superior (due to the time advantage -- Not to mention, learn from their first Droid). It might help those that want the Incredible for what it is, get it sooner so those that just "want the best" will do the jump to the X.

As for the links.  http://www.androidcentral.com/droid-x-does-not-have-motoblur That was an interesting read -- In fact..it seemed to have annoyed a lot of readers.. I hope it is exactly what is claimed because it wouldn't be fair, you know? It's just like the rumored screen switching with the HTC. I hope those that recently received the Inc or are in the near future.. compare to the ones in store or with another person that has had it since launch or a little after so they can make sure they got the real deal or cannot tell the difference between the two..technologically/appearently.

 

Hopefully everyone gets what they want.

Maybe you guys can explain to me how the Droid X will be so much better than the Incredible?  Other than a bigger screen and the HD capable camera, and a supposed upgrade to 2.2 with flash coming (that somehow the Incredible won't get), it seems to just be more fancy for those of you who will be using your phone to watch videos on youtube all day and what not. (no offense)

 

So... bigger screen, lil bit nicer camera, and upgrade to 2.2 (dunno whats so great about that)... so a newbie how it will be so much better?

 

Personally I don't like the design, its bulky and the lip for the camera makes it that much thicker.  Where as the Incredible to me I think would be more suitable, size wise and what not.

 

Englighten me on some strong points people, please.

faster processor. more efficient processer (meaning longer batttery life). comes with a larger battery. comes w/ a 16gb sd card instead of a 2.

in addition, if you have to replace your incredible, have fun waiting at least a month for a new one. motorola wasnt silly enough to put the life of their product in the hands of a competitor.

The Incredible will get 2.2 (Froyo) but it'll likely take longer as HTC has to adapt SenseUI to work with it.  As for not seeing what's so great about Froyo, it's about 400% faster than Eclair (2.1).  In my experience running it on the Droid, the performance difference is night and day.  Battery life has also improved.
