XD's have a higher bore axis than the other two, which translates to more felt recoil when we're talking the same caliber and weight.
The M&P fits my hand like a glove, whereas I don't like Glocks at all. I held an XD awhile ago and I just didn't like the bore axis. Also the grip texturing is a little extreme and not comfortable to me.
They all have slightly different trigger pulls. I wouldn't be able to tell you about pounds of trigger pulls and whatnot. I've never shot anything in the XD line, but I have shot a Glock awhile ago. It was ok, but then again it was the first handgun I ever shot so I couldn't compare it to anything. I also don't really remember how it felt to shoot. I believe it was a 19.
I own an M&P9c and my wife owns a full sized. I love them both. Hers is better broken in than mine so its slightly a sweeter shooter. I've heard countless people talk about how the ergonomics on the M&P line are superior to Glocks and maybe even the XD line. I'm sure that'll piss off Glock-fan-boys, insulting the "end all, be all" gun of the universe, which simply cannot be improved on (because you can't improve upon perfection), and if Zeus himself needed a gun, he would choose a Glock. *rolls eyes*
Really couldn't care about pissing off the fan boys though. They tend to be brand myopic, which is silly in today's world where there are so many great polymer framed guns out there.
