Wednesday Poll: Picking up one of Verizon’s new phones – DROIDX2, Revolution or Xperia PLAY?

Next Thursday is shaping up to be a huge Android launch day for Verizon, with the DROIDX2, Xperia PLAY and possibly even the LG Revolution all becoming available.  One is dual-core, another is stock Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and the other is 4G LTE, but are any of them your next phone?  Can a qHD screen, gaming pad, or front-facing camera help you decide?  And not to hi-jack this poll before you’ve even hit the voting part, but can you imagine a phone that combined all of these things?

Any of these your next device?

    I like the look of the X2 but the specs aren’t what I was hoping for (dual core). I have the DInc and really like it but the DInc2 is also not enough of a bump to warrant an upgrade. Waiting for something better. Hoping the revamped Bionic is the one!

    I wish these phones excited me, but not one of them makes me regret purchasing my Thunderbolt. Now, if Vz was releasing the HTC sensation we would be having a different conversation.

     I would be getting the X@674d4a16af667421854bced94c134be3:disqus.. but my og droid broke.. and I needed a phone ASAP.. so I had to settle for the tbolt.. Tbolt is cool tho… just wish I had Tegra2 and HDMI out

      *getting the X2 not XDean whatever 

  • Csalzman

    Glad I pulled the trigger on the Thunderbolt, and didn’t wait for the X2.  I’m sure a dual-core processor is nice and all (and probably looks great on synthetic benchmarks), but I’ve never said “damn, I wish this phone was faster.”  And yes, my battery is fine.  I killed it the first day with literally 7 hours of non stop use, but I have had no issues getting through a full day since then.

    I think Im gonna get the dx2. Im happy with 3g and I don’t want to have to do video chat with the wife no matter where im at. And I like the form factor of the dx along with the build quality. Better camera pls tho.

    For those of us who have never video chatted once in our lives or even imagined doing so what other use is a front facing camera serve….on a phone?
    Give me the fastest processor I can have and 4g and keep the rest.

    I bought the OG Droid the day it came out and am due for my upgrade the end of this summer. How about a post for the OG faithful on phones rumored to be dropping in that timeframe Kellex?

    • Emily

       End of summer?! I got mine the day it came out and I’m due for upgrade in July. VZW is jacking you.

    You say you want to upgrade from DX to DX2? Or you can’t understand all the “hatin’”? Well follow this link to the Motorola.com site for there own comparison of the two. YOU tell ME if this is a worthy UPGRADE. I say NO.

    I completely hate how this site has turned into a “keep up with the newest phones site” W.h.o. c.a.r.e.s.  droid news?  where is it?

    • Emily

       Um… This is about the newest Droids and Android phones on VZW. and things and apps for them. keeping up with information on the newest phones, isn’t that what a “news” site like this is for. This is new Droid phones. So it is Droid news isn’t it?

      Are we suppose to keep talking strictly about the OG Droid?

  • Mrcheese24

     Droid BIONIC!

    • Rylee K

      Salespeople at my local VZW store were told by a Motorola rep that Bionic is dead in the water. One sales rep believed the guy, the other didn’t. Apparently the overheating issues were a big problem; not sure of the other problems.

     wait for something better….. yea ok every 2 weeks there is something better. guess your gonna keep on waiting 

  • Anonymous

     Wow, if this site could become any more elitist, I don’t know how, “You are dumb for buying a Droid Charge, but wow, if you get an out of date original Droid you are some kind of hero”.  Come on guys, don’t turn into another Endgadget.

  • Edward M Yang

     The “Waiting for something better” should be relabeled to “Waiting for a dual-core LTE phone FFS”.

    where is the waiting for my contract to run out because I can’t afford to buy a phone at full price option?  lol

    4g, back to 3g, phone after phone with new, more, less, old features. Blah blah, marketing that fishing hook. I’m holding out for the DroidXIVIII and the iPHone 7 with 12g. That’s it.

     I would like a Motorola Nexus Droid 4G on the Verizon network. I know… it sounds like a silly pipe dream… but you gotta admit, that would be cool.

    I still have 10 months left before I can upgrade but I’d seriously conisder the xperia if it had better internal memory.  Less then 1gb is a complete joke – especially for a gaming phone considering that high quality games are huge downloads.  The slide out controller looks sick though!
