    Advice/opinions, please.

    This morning, I dropped my X onto a tile floor. Now the display is messed up and looks to be slowly getting worse. The real problem I have is not knowing what to replace it with. Not a clue. I know where I can get an X2 in "Like New" condition for $45. That seems like a good deal since I can return it within 30 days with no obligation.Opinions?

    The Droid X2 is almost 4 years old (MAY 19, 2011), so it's old even if it's been the original box all this time, and less than a year newer than the DX (July 15, 2010)
    If you're not looking to flash roms, and ok with android 2.3/gingerbread, it's ok.
    If your not willing to spend more than $50, choices are really limited.
    I see a Droid Razr for $65 here Droid Razr (Verizon) For Sale - NQQ509 - $65 > Swappa , not new but has Jellybean/4.1.2

    Thanks, sd_shadow.

    My X is rooted, but I don't remember why. I *think* it had to do with hotspot. Which is important. Other than that, as long as it makes/takes calls. I still really like the X, but they're going for more than twice what I can get the X2 for. (?!?)

    I know *OF* the Razr. Don't know anything about it. Other than newness, is there anything that should compel me towards it and away from an X or an X2?

    Not a lot of difference spec wise Motorola DROID X2 vs Motorola DROID RAZR - Phone specs comparison
    The DX2 has the NVIDIA Tegra 2 which never seemed to perform well

    There are 2 Droid Razrs
    the Razr has a 1780 mAh
    the Razr maxx a 3300 mAh battery

    Thanks again, sd_shadow.

    I was just watching a screen replacement video. I can do that. Heck, for $10 - that 's less than I paid for my auto-lobotomy kit.
