Sidekick LX vs Sidekick Slide

Sidekick LX vs Sidekick Slide

Still haven’t taken the plunge and bought one of the new Sidekicks? Still not sure which one is the right one for you? Silently cursing Danger for being so on top of things that they released two new devices at once? (It’s certainly cost us some sleep trying to keep up) Well BGR might be able to help. They’ve got a quick comparison of the Sidekick LX and the Sidekick Slide. If you want the nitty gritty details, check out the article.

Their ultimate conclusion:
“If you’re a hardcore Sidekick user you’ll want to grab the LX. The keyboard and screen alone make this a win. The Sidekick Slide isn’t really beneath the LX on the totem pole, so if you want an awesome phone, but love the Danger OS all in a small device, you will definitely want to pickup the Slide.”

We basically agree. If you’re a hardcore Sidekick user, the screen on the LX will blow you away, along with keeping all the good stuff of the Sidekick 3 but squeezing it into a sexier body. If you’re looking for something small that will fit in your pocket better and don’t send a bajillion emails/im/txts/etc a day, then the Slide is cheaper, smaller, and probably more your style.

    i saw the slide yesterday and i must say its not as ugly as it looks on the computer. its kinda cute actually. but the screen is TINY, but definitely a better quality than the sk3. i’ll stick with my LX tho

    For a hundred dollars less, I can tell how people will be attracted to the Slide.
    LX for me though!

    Not to get off topic, but, has anyone else gotten the OTA? I did about an hour ago. Its for the “email refresh” we learned about a couple of weeks ago. Good stuff.

    It has to be sent to your phone, you can’t just get it and theres no telling when you’ll get it either. Me and my friend both had the SK3’s and got an update for it a month a part. I’m not sure how they roll the updates out.

    All OTA’s are sent out randomly to a certain ammount of users at a time, to prevent network issues..

    If you have more questions or want to know more about Over The Air updates, then go to the forums… and sign up and post! There’s a lot of information on there, so just search around.

    As for the slide, I love the way it looks and slides.. but the keys are really close together.. Not to mention the screen is really small compared to a LX that I own. It’s all about personal preferences.. But both devices work and look great!

    I defenitly rather the slide..not that the lx is bad but the slide is smaller and cutter…and that leather on the back of the lx looks lik a piece of shit. ..the screen on the lx is better nd they keyboard is more spaced out and easier 2 text but the appearence seems more better for boys in preference the blue sidesick slide is the best..for me!!
