Comparison: DROID vs. DROID 2 vs. DROID X vs. Incredible

If you are struggling to decide which Droid family member to buy with your early upgrade, then we have the chart for you.  The table above compares the Droid 2, Droid 1, Droid X and Droid Incredible in the simplest of formats and should help you make a decision.

A couple of things to point out though:

  • The D1 column is highlighted, meaning the Droid 2 is around the corner and VZW employees are being trained into pushing customers toward other devices.
  • The asterisk next to the D1, DX and DI simply mean that they are scheduled to receive Froyo.  We just don’t know exactly when.
  • Doesn’t the DI have 748MB of ROM, not 512MB?
  • And yes, the LG Ally is included, we just don’t care.

Pretty impressive lineup of phones though wouldn’t you say?

    Droid 2 also has swype… Does that put it ahead of Droid X again? I was surprised to discover Droid X does tethering, they don’t advertise that.

    Great comparison! I had been biting my nails trying to decide between the two phones and upon seeing them in person I had decided on the Droid X for myself lured in by the 4.3″ screen.

    I like but my Dinc has 720p recording using the camera flash, face detection, I’ve been running Amazon MP3 store since day one, 3G Mobile hotspot and flash.

    I know it's the lower end of the group and has taken a lot of hits for the under-powered nature of it… but I've had one for a little while now and it's not nearly as bad as the heat it takes.

    “If you are struggling to decide which Droid family member to buy with your early upgrade” Well that’s nice to know about this the Droid 2.

    The Droid X has 512 but 2.1 only supports 256mb, once you upgrade to froyo 512 comes the drop.”Thanks for sharing these useful information!

    Not that it matters much, but the LG Ally does in fact, have an auto-focus camera…

  • Well-informed man

    It's not ROM its RAM

  • Darin

    Actually the Ally isn't that bad… and some of the specs are wrong on that sheet. It does have autofocus on the camera, it has slide-out QWERTY and virtual keyboards. I know it's the lower end of the group and has taken a lot of hits for the under-powered nature of it… but I've had one for a little while now and it's not nearly as bad as the heat it takes. It also is slated to receive the 2.2 update which will help the under-powered issue (allegedly). Anyway, my 2 cents.

  • Donna

    On the DROID 2 – Can you use your nails on the screen to type a message or does it have to be your finger tips? please someone respond asap. Many thanks!

  • Bessieroo

    I got my first smartphone in July, the salesman convinced me that the Ally was the way to go. There were definitely things I liked about it but the poor reception and the inability to stayed paired with the SYNC in my car and the bluetooth in my laptop were just not something I could overlook,I returned it 2 weeks later and ordered my DroidX, it is due to arrive any day, and now I wonder if I should return it and get the Droid2. I was already wondering if I wanted another touchscreen-only phone (I have the LG Dare now) or if all the complaints about the volume being too low were going to make me regret the purchase…what to do, what to do….

    I just bought an Incredible, mostly because DXs are back ordered until the 22nd and I'm very impatient, and I was wondering how, when rooted, it stacks up to rooted D1s and Xs in terms of overall performance and usability?

    There is no way the droid x only has 256 ram if i kill all the crap apps in task killer i can get up to 235 free thats way more than the 72 on my original droid running sapphire 1.0

  • Orangearrrows

    This comparison sheet shows DROID X as 512 MB

    http://www.androidcentral.com/droid-x-specs-bat

  • Orangearrrows

    Doesn't DROID X have 512 MD of RAM? This comparison sheet mentions 256 MB

  • Steelers-06

    This seems to be incorrect…..DRoid X has 8GB on board according to Motorola's Web site.

  • Joshuaturnsmeahn

    this really helps thumbs up :)

  • Donna

    Questions………….Please someome respond :(
    1. When is the upgrade to the 2.2 on the Droid X?????
    2. Is there a docking station for the Droid X???? you know, one you can set on your night stand? not the one on the car window.

    PLEASE someone help a girl out trying to learn more about her Droid :)

    Thank you!!!!

  • Zoul_kyud

    Its based off the kernel more specific. If the HTC is running a higher kernel then it shows more ram.

    The .29 kernel only supports max 256mb RAM
    the .32 kernel supports the full 512mb RAM.

  • Towelie420

    It says the Droid X has 256MB of RAM. What gives? I thought it had 512? That's what every other source says. Somebody please clarify? I'm surprised NOBODY mentioned this? Except for Zoul_Kyud's comment where he said:
    “The ram is based off the OS its running. Droid X has 512 but 2.1 only supports 256mb, once you upgrade to froyo 512 comes the drop.”
    Can somebody, anybody please clarify? I am a little flustered.
    **please “like” this, if you give a hoot, so we can get this clarified

  • Drumaddict

    The HTC Incredible has 8gb of internal memory but I don't see that listed….

  • Neddo

    SO…

    With the D2 having a higher RAM amount as well as the same processor as the DX, doesn't this mean the D2 will be faster than the DX…?

  • Nana

    Does anyone know when the update of the 2.2 is coming out for the DriodX ?????????????????? Pretty sad that the regular Droid gets the update first…. come on….DroidX is suppose to be the bomb, then how about the 2.2???????????????????????????????????

  • Ryan

    Now if i remember correctly, which i do, when the Droid 1 was being promoted, it said “DVD quality video capture.” now in this chart it doesn't say that for Droid 1, however it does for the Droid 2.

  • Smitty

    Now if they would just make either the Droid 2, Droid X, or Droid Incredible BOGO (buy one get one) I might just bite. Of the two phones that are currently BOGO — Droid 1 and LG Ally — one is 8 months old and the other isn't even worth considering buying in my opinion.

  • MIKE M

    It says the X only has 256mb of RAM???????????????????????????

    • drooiid

      wow really? i dont think anyone else noticed that…

  • Rjpalmer2004
