I wouldn't go that far.
They are pretty comparable.
Droid X vs. iPhone 4:
They both sport a 1GHz processor.
Display & Resolution:
While the Droid X has a larger screen, the iPhone 4 has a higher resolution screen.
The Droid X does have the advantage in the storage department as they have an 8GB built in storage and a MicroSD card reader allowing them to expand to 40GB total.
The Droid X has an 8MP camera where the iPhone 4 has a 5MP camera. Both have LED flash.
However, the iPhone 4 does have a front facing camera for pictures and video conferencing.
The Droid X does have an HDMI output where the iPhone 4 does not.
The Droid X has better out of the box connectivity with its ability to serve as a wifi hotspot. However, once the jailbreak comes out for the iPhone 4 (very soon), you can get an app called MyWi 4 from Cydia that allows the same features withOUT the extra $20 a month to the cell carrier that the Droid X has.
Both are pretty good operating systems. With the ever improving mobile operating systems, it is hard to say that any operating system today is better over the other (including Windows Mobile).
The iPhone app store has over 200,000 apps where the Droid app store only has around 70,000.
Verizon does have better/more 3G coverage than AT&T. The one spot AT&T is better than Verizon is in their 3G speeds.
I would rather have 3G that was slower, or any cell service for that matter, than not have service at all.
With that said, I have thought about switching from my 3GS on AT&T to Verizon and get the Droid X. My main reasoning is because my wife doesn't have cell service with her AT&T phone for almost 30 minutes of her commute to and from work every day. That is a long time that anything can happen and she will need a cell phone.
I have both a Blackberry Curve 8530 on Verizon (work phone) and an iPhone 3GS on AT&T (personal phone), so I don't necessarily have to switch to Verizon, but I would want a Family Plan so it would be cheaper since we don't have a home phone.
I have ran test on both phones via the same laptop at the same location in Louisville, KY and the AT&T 3G speeds are almost double what the Verizon 3G speeds are.
However, at my house I have 3G Verizon coverage and Edge AT&T coverage.
