Summary: Overall the product is working fine. I like all of the features and really like having the keypad with which to text. However, there are a few features I feel that Motorola could have made better. I really wish battery life was longer and wish it had a better camera.
Pros: Security so I can use it with my corp email account. Qwerty kb so I can enter text quickly (not a fan of virtual kbs yet). I like having so many home pages so I can organize apps. And the ability to remove the bundled apps is a plus, too. I think the
Cons: Screen is almost impossible to see in bright sunlight. Smudges collect quickly. Wish it were lighter/thinner. Should come with more onboard storage.
Pros: Superior Android OS; great camera; responsive keyboard; more apps tan you can shake a stick at; dual-band; literally does everything
Cons: Battery life is bad - lasts approximately 16-hours on normal use; keyboard takes some getting used to - I love BB keys, and this has some weird angling but it's not hard to get used to; only one convenience key; iffy media-player; junk apps
Summary: For outside of U.S., at least one more APN should be set at the same time. This is basically for the people in the U.S.A. Since I am live in Japan and own Softbank SIM, it has both open connection and WAP connection capabilities. To use these access points two different user IDs have to be set. But, other features are sufficiently good comparing with other android phones.
Summary: Good phone if you like the keyboard. The phone is easy to use since I am familiar with the droid platform it wasn't hard to learn new features. The keyboard is a little small but I am getting used to it. Better than the Blackberry because the screen is larger.
Summary: Pros: battery life, screen size, ease of use, qwerty keyboard, processor Cons: 2.2.1, sometimes notifications can be quirky, sometimes the camera "bump" can be annoying when hold phone during calls.
Summary: I have Cricket for my cellular provider and have used a few mobile phones so I believe I can make an educated Overall Rating. I replaced an HTC 6800 because its browser really sucked. Granted since it was like 3 years old and since I flashed the phone I do not know if I could have updated the software. It could not link to the Sprint Network.!!! Now to pick this phone apart calling Balls and Strikes: Con: The Microsoft Word on it sucks beyond belief in my opinion.
A device of such quality as to outweigh Motorola's proprietary motives.

Summary: I give the Droid X 4/5. This is based on a set of criteria I have been hunting to fulfill for a while. In the Verizon Droid X have found a phone with wifi capability, which is capable of being activated on Page Plus and therefore not require a data plan with Verizon, but still use the same resources for voice. The phone is easily root-able, though Motorola has made it very hard to modify the on-board software via encryption and mounting ro on boot.
Amazingly great, still not quite as great as the iPhone 4

Summary: Very impressed with how the phone came out of the box. I loved the huge screen size, excellent camera, very fast operating system and processor, and the good battery life. This is one of the best Android phones you can buy. As far as competition, the iPhone 4 does everything this Droid X can do, and it does it all better than the Droid X. The iPhone, while its hardware specs aren't as good as the Droid X, is much more polished and refined than any Android phone.
