Well, I have a deadline of the 25th to choose and considering the One X is held up at customs without a specific way they have to do the investigation.... I'm doubting that will be over with by then. Considering that, is the Vivid a good option from my infuse?

One X unless you have a pressing need for microSD. It is worth waiting for a boot loader unlock.

Why do you have a deadline, might I ask?

Have to get a new phone then or I don't get one at all. Convenient isn't it?

I'm really attracted to the one x because of sense 4 and the 720p display.

One X is essentially just another Vivid. You're not going to get much dev out of it since HTC said they're not going to unlock the BL. Sense 4 will come to the Vivid, one day.

Also, out of reading, I've noticed the vivid has to be taken apart for s-off. This isn't necessary for roms/kernels/mods, correct?

I am on AT&T and decently experienced with technology, just not with programming. I just don't want to risk breaking a brand new device just to switch kernels. With unlocked boot loader, you just do it through hboot and adb correct?
