I use XD but around 95% people use xD which makes me think that I am doing it the wrong way. Personally, I feel that it should be XD because it looks symmetrical while with xD it looks like the eyes are tilted to one side which is unoriginal. I wonder why people prefer xD instead of XD. Teach me.

I'm an avid user of these faces. It's practically a bad typing habit I have. I almost always use "xD."
The reason I don't use "XD" is because I always (in my head) imagine it to look more like regular letters -- an X and a D. With xD, the fact of there being a lower case letter in front of a capital, something that is rare in English, helps distinguish it more as a face in my opinion.
In texting, both are correct, but I personally prefer xD for the reasoning above.2
