Default Droid Phones

Which Droid phone is the best and what is the difference in all of them?

I see some are slid phones and some are not.

What carrier are you on. The best two Android phones on Sprint at the moment are the HTC EVO and the Samsung Epic.

Droid 2 IMHO.

It's either the droid X or the droid 2 and the droid x has a larger screen where as the droid 2 has a slide out keyboard, which is much more useful IMHO.

EDIT: Rich brings up a good point, are you asking about phones that use the android operating system or the actual motorola droid line?

I would have been the first one to tell you to get the slide out keyboard but man I love my X it is so easy to type on. The big screen sells it 100%! I have played with friends phones that have the 2 and I feel like I am squinting and have to be very careful where I push. The x is great on tapatalk with frf. I barely use my laptop anymore lol. Honestly if you want the best experience for the internet go with the x. Not to mention the 8 mega pixel camera and the abilty to type on the screen and still see half the screen. in my opinion the 2 is awesome but the x is superior in capabilty. It has replaced my camera, laptop and gps its just awesome!

Plus the otterbox defender for the x just came out today. I was first in line and got my order in right away. Another thing to consider with the 2 is case options. Because of the slider you are limited.

I figured he meant Android in general. Verizon really confused a lot of people putting the word "Droid" in front of all of their Android phones.

I have the Droid 1 I guess you would call it and my fiance has the Droid 2. We both went with the one we chose because of the slide out keyboard, however my next phone will more than likely not have the slide out keyboard as I rarely ever use it. Plus with a case on the phone it is really hard to use the top row of buttons (I may just have large fingers/hands. And it adds extra weight.

Otterbox for the X completely waterproof?


EDIT: Nevermind, just googled it. Not waterproof.

Droid 2 ftw. I have the droid one now, and planning to upgrade to the droid 2 soon. But there is always a buzz about the iphone coming to verizon, in which case I might be doing that. But Droid 2 is one of the best ways to go. Or check out the galaxy s with the omled screen. Both great phones.

I'm waiting on the Iphone4 on Verizon..

The Droid X is nice if you have pockets big enough to hold a 5 gallon gas can.
