So we have pretty much settled on the fact that we will be switching our phone carrier from AT&T to Verizon based upon the wisdom of those fulltimers before us who stated that the coverage of Verizon was superior to all other carriers. Now this may change in the future but we are about to commit to a 2 year plan with Verizon for this reason.
So which phone should we get? We have looked at and researched a lot about Verizon's phones and have narrowed it to the Droid X and the Droid Incredible. I have researched these two phones and thought I should share so here are my research results for a side-by-side comparison of the Droid X and the Incredible.
They are both black in color. Both of these phones have the Android 2.2 OS installed on them and both come with 8GB of internal memory. Both feature an eight megapixel camera and the ability to record video. But this is where the similarities seem to end.
The Droid X is made out of metal not plastic like the Incredible . Droid X records video in HD while the Incredible does not. Droid X's screen is larger also (4.3-inch touchscreen with 854x480 pixel display beats the Incredible’s 3.7-inch, 800x480px screen). Droid X has external storage of 16MB while Incredible has none.
For processing power, the Incredible com has a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, while the Motorola Droid X has a 1GHz OMAP 3630 CPU and when benchmarked (this tests the processor, memory, and graphics) the X scored 2.4 times better. When used outside in the sun, the display on the DROID X was brighter and easier to read than the Incredible. The Droid X has an HDMI output which can be very handy.
Droid Incredible is more compact and is less weight but this seems to be the only major plus for them in my opinion over the X.
For a great comparison chart of these two phones along with the Droid 2 and the Droid Pro go to computerworld.
Now the only problem is that there is a rumor that the HTC Merge/Incredible HD or “Mecha” is coming out real soon.
Hmmmmmm… which phone should I get…
