Motorola Droid X
Cell Phone Reviews by Cellphonedia
6 October 2010
Excerpt: Motorola Droid X is the latest addition to the series of similarly-equipped smart phones namely HTC EVO 4G, Apple iPhone 4 and the Galaxy S. This offering from Verizon Wireless could easily become the best Android phone around. A 4.3 inches high resolution display, 1Ghz processor, 16GB of storage and an 8 megapixel camera are among the many notable features of the device.
Pros: Very fast and responsive processor, Large display, High quality camera
Cons: Large size, Call quality poor in low coverage areas, Heavy usage of camera drains the battery
Conclusion: The Droid X is a large phone which is something that you need to consider before buying it. If your hands are small, you may not enjoy the experience and might want to consider the Droid 2 or Droid Incredible, instead. Despite the fact that the Droid X is a very recent phone, it will feel dated quickly if it doesn’t get an Android 2.2 update in the coming months.
Conclusion: The DROID X is the most powerful Android smartphone available on Verizon. The huge screen and impressive specifications make the phone a pleasure to use. Motorola has added its own UI to the phone making it look better than the default Android operating system interface. The UI will also add some widgets that will add to the usability of the phone. We think that the DROID X is a great phone for those who want a big display and don’t mind its size.
Excerpt: Verizon continues to expand their Droid line of Android smartphones. The latest and greatest addition to the line is the unapologetically-large Droid X, which has the same huge 4.3″ display found on the EVO 4G on Sprint and the HD2 on T-Mobile. The Motorola Droid X phone has a lot of tricks up its sleeve.
Excerpt: The original Motorola Droid was a huge hit, both for Motorola as well as for Verizon Wireless . In the time since the DROID was launched in November, Verizon Wireless has also added the HTC Droid Incredible to its lineup of popular Android handsets. Now, Motorola and Verizon Wireless have teamed up again to offer "The Next Generation of Does" in the form of the Motorola Droid X.
Pros: Speedy TI OMAP 1GHz processor with Dedicated GPU, Roomy 4.3-inch touchscreen, Adobe Flash Player 10.1 ready, Verizon Wireless network with vast 3G coverage
Cons: Large footprint, Heavier than some of today's popular smartphones, No 4G connectivity
Summary: DROID X is an awesome superphone, and is a much needed form factor in the Verizon lineup. The 1 GHz processor, combined with the 4.3-inch display and 8.0-megapixel camera, make this an incredibly feature-rich device that blew through everything I was able to throw at it. I tend to prefer Sense to MOTOBLUR, but the actual design of the device is my favorite Android phone to date.
Pros: Powerful 1 GHz processor; 8 GB of internal storage; 4.3-inch touchscreen; HDMI video capabilities; 8.0-megapixel camera.
Cons: The DROID X lacks a front-facing camera for video calling; battery life is frustratingly short.
Summary: The original Motorola Droid for Verizon was a game-changer - it was the phone that really brought Droid to the masses, backed by VZW's network muscle and a massive marketing campaign. This newest Droid, the Droid X, won't be another game-changer but that doesn't mean it's not an excellent smartphone.
Pros: Large, vivid display; Generally excellent performance including signal strength; Redesigned social networking features; Great soft QWERTY board; Above average camera
Cons: A few hard crashes during testing; Voice quality was good but not stunning considering the three-mic design; Custom apps don't offer performance of dedicated Twitter/Facebook apps; Limited HDMI-out functionality
[Updated] Droid X Review Roundup: It’s Pretty Awesome
23 July 2010
Summary: All in all, it looks like the Droid X is a great upgrade for Droid owners, and a great phone for those looking to join in on the Android parade on America’s largest network. Is it better than the Incredible? Engadget and MobileBurn seem to think that’s debatable, while Phandroid and IntoMobile say, “Hell yes.” There’s no definitive answer – the best way to decide is to go look at them, play with them, and decide based on personal preference.
