Poll: Verizon releases 3 Android devices today, which one will you take?

Though some of these devices have been available online for a few days, there is nothing like walking into a store and having some intimate time with a handset before making a commitment. Today, May 26, Verizon has 3 new devices available in-store, and chances are many of you will be running over to get your hands all over them. Said Android smartphones are the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, the Motorola Droid X2, and the LG Revolution.

We are all obsessed with the idea of having that one device that has it all. Such is not the case for these, and as sad as it seems, that Prince Charming Android phone can only be found in our dreams (for now). All three devices offer very different features, creating a diverse variety of phones, so you can pick which one will suit your needs better.

We have put together a poll to see what our readers think about Verizon’s tri-force, and which devices they will be taking home. So, Let’s take a look at today’s poll contestants!

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play

Oh, Xperia Play! We have been waiting so long for you. Rumors about the existence of this device started flying around since last year, around August. As you probably already know, this device is meant to be targeted at all you hard-core gamers out there. Being the only device that features a slide-out gaming pad, it will sure keep your spare time very busy, while you take care of saving the world and what not.

We are all complaining about the fact that phones are still being released without dual-core processors. Of course, we want the latest and newest, and though this is not a dual-core device, it does have the newer generation of Qualcomm single-core processors. This device sports a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon II processor, with an Adreno 205 GPU (which should keep your gaming and media running pretty smooth).

Aside from the lack of dual-core (No 4G LTE either), this phone has everything else that you can expect from it, like Android 2.3 Gingerbread, VGA front-facing camera, and a 5 MP rear-facing camera.

Motorola Droid X2

The Motorola Droid X was quite popular last year, mostly due to its thin body, and that stunning 4.3-inch display. Well, if you are a proud owner of the Motorola Droid X, the Droid X2 will give you a boost in performance, while giving you a very familiar feeling to what you are used to.

When I say the word “familiar,” i mean it. The Droid X2 is pretty much the same as its predecessor, but with 2 main upgrades: A 1 GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor, and a qHD display (960×540). Other specs include teh familiar Android 2.2 Froyo (to be upgraded to Gingerbread), 512 MB of RAM, and 8 MP rear-facing camera.

The device does lack a front-facing camera, along with 4G LTE compatibility, but some of you may very well not care about those.

LG Revolution

First seen at CES (officially), the LG Revolution has become a big upgrade for Verizon LG users. Though the LG Vortex and LG Ally were great entry-level devices for new Android users, it is time for LG to step up the game when it comes to Verizon handsets.

The LG Revolution is actually the only one three devices (and the only one released today) that is 4G LTE capable on Verizon Wireless (along with the HTC Thunderbolt and the Samsung Droid Charge). Its 4G compatibility and the front-facing 1.3 MP camera are pretty much the most exciting features in the Revolution. Aside from those two, the specs include Android 2.2 Froyo, a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, a 5 MP rear-facing camera, and a 4.3-inch TFT display.

Which do you want?

As mentioned before, each of these devices has its own advantages over the others. Which one is the best? That simply depends on your needs. Gamers will definitely have a good time with the Xperia Play. If you really want a front-facing camera, the Droid X2 would be out of the picture, but it is also the only one with a dual-core processor. If data speed is an important factor, it may be good to consider the LG Revolution, which is compatible with Verizon’s new 4G LTE network.

Please take a vote and let us know which of these will be your next Android smartphone. We always like to know what you guys think, so let us know the reason for choosing one of these devices (or none) in the comments section.

    I’d be a hybrid of all those phones but no single one has what I want. At least not enough to buy early and pay the extra $40-50…

  • uzunoff

    Don’t trust Sony to get their phone. Not yet at least. Show some track record of fast updates and I will jump on the Sony train.

    The X2 is a great phone but no 4G, really Verzion. You didn’t think that this phone needs 4G???? I guess the flagship is still the Thunderbolt, even with its horrible battery life.

    The LG is a single core. so in my opinion is not a serious and future prove phone.

    So, my opinion is just like most of the people who voted. None of the above.

    • lament

      Gun to my head – the Droid X2.

      But, like others, I’m holding out for the Bionic.

  • http://Website nastysquar3d

    None of these phones are all that appealing to me. I’m waiting on the Samsung Galaxy S2 variant for Verizon to use upgrade. Hopefully, it will have 4G, but even if it doesn’t I’m OK with 3G. If it takes forever to come like the Fascinate I might just ship to Sprint.

    I got the iPhone 4 from Verizon! Best device ever.

    • http://Website Lane

      I think that was Verizon’s plan. Sellouts! Lets offer the Iphone and then not give them the Android they want. Should be good for Apple business. too bad they are just missing out on business period

  • http://Website Richard Yarrell

    I choose NONE of these devices… LTE won’t do anything for the LG Revolution but DRAIN THE BATTERY INSIDE OF 4HRS go ask thunderbolt users if they want to tell the truth. Honestly the DROID X2 leaves out with prize if I had any desire

  • http://Website Zer0-9

    Not enough RAM on any of them. If it doesn’t have at least 1GB of RAM and a dual core chipset I’m not interested.

    Moto impressed me with the Atrix, but I’m not giving AT&T a dime. Tmo and Sprint don’t have coverage where I live, but if I can do wifi calling with a device I may switch to a network that knows how to get decent phones.

    Tbolt with bad battery life? Hmm that’s odd I get 18+ hours on mine with good use!! Sammy galaxy s2 is coming to vzw an it does have 4g its on phone

  • http://Website aantoine87

    is it just me or does verizon constantly release the same looking phones over and over, this is the 1st time everyone wasn’t all over it but when t-mobile does it ONCE! everybody goes ape shit with insults

    T-mobile = samsung galaxy s, galaxy s 4g

    verizon = droid, droid 2, droid 2 international, droid 3
    droid x, droid x 2
    storm, storm 2, storm 3

  • http://Website Darkseider

    None of them. Verizon has dropped the ball badly on this one. I just two T-Mobile G2X’s for $74.99 each after coupon and FREE activation with a data and voice plan that trumps VZW for far less monthly. Quick root, leaked GB 2.3.3 build and I am GOLDEN. Granted… I will miss my OG Droid. That thing has served me well.

  • http://Website Lucian Armasu

    None. They need to bring dual core+LTE phones on Verizon.

  • http://Website Shane

    Same here for the 4g and dual core. Makes no sense to get one with out the other, if you’re going to be stuck with a two year contract. Holding on to my OG Droid till then.

  • http://Website Wade

    This is total BS. Get the Bionic and SGSII out already, and stop dicking around with last year’s technology!

  • http://Website RD

    I just don’t get why you would buy a 3G phone on Verizon right now. I mean 600-800 kb vs 5-12 mb? In 2 years when you are eligible for an upgrade that 3G will get pretty old.

    I mean just get a 4G toggle widget and only use it when you need the speed at least. It doesn’t cost anymore monthly. Paying $70+tax minimum /mo for a 3G phone seems like a complete waste of money to me.

  • http://Website Lane

    4G and Dual Core or I’ll keep my Droid at 1.1ghz and 3g. why upgrade?

  • http://Website mikeyDroid

    Verizon is playing a game with everyone…

    OG Droid @ 1.15ghz > Anything Verizon has to offer – only negative is the battery life I have.

    Bionic? Pssh, shit is beyond outdated by now – even with their alleged “bumped specs”…

    SGS2 w/ LTE or gtfo!

  • http://Website snowbdr89

    i dunno why people cry about dual core phones personally i could give a rats ass about a dual core phone, give me a single core unlocked phone and ill take that over a locked down dual core anyday!! but just so you dual core babies know vzw does have some coming, dx2, bionic, samsung galaxy s2, motorola targo so thats 4 dual core phones…

  • http://Website jbn

    i went to a verizon store to check out the revolution and its actually really smooth and fast quadrant scores was 1800 and as high as 2000 if that matters

  • http://Website pax

    NONE….too expensive on contract.

  • http://Website Dsparil

    Verizon couldn’t get the Atrix with CDMA/LTE antennas/
