Droid X: The Complete Review

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

Please note that you can also get a Droid Incredible review if you’re looking for one. Droid X has a 4.3″ screen with a 854×480 resolution, which is similar to the EVO 4G and makes it the largest smartphone currently available (5″ tall). There might be a few pixels missing hrere and there on Droid X, which is not the case on the iPhone 4. That being said, Droid has such a huge screen that a couple missing pixels does not matter anymore.

Motorola also went bigger by including an 8-megapixel camera along with dual LED flash that takes sensibly clean pics as well as records video in 720p. Motorola incorporated DLNA and also HDMI support for streaming media to your high-def TV or other device.

Inside the Motorola Droid X beats the heart of a 1GHz TI OMAP processor that handles tasks quickly and with no lag. The next big thing is the amount of memory inside the phone. The Droid X comes with 24GB of internal storage: 8GB on board and a 16GB removable micro SD card.

Unlike the original Droid, Motorola opted against adding a physical keyboard to the Droid X. It was a wise choice given that even though the cell phone is large, it is relatively slim when compared with its all round size. A physical keyboard would have very likely designed a device already challenging to stuff into a pocket actually more complicated. Still, with the larger screen, the on-screen key pad is easy to type with and Motorola thoughtfully incorporated a Swype keyboard for individuals who aren’t happy with the stock Android keyboard.

Another excellent thing that you can do with a Droid X and not with an iPhone is use it as a 3G hotspot to connect your laptop or any other wireless device to the internet. This is very convenient . This is so easy to establish a connection that anybody could do it, and the connection speed is more than decent.

There are so many smartphones that look superior on the cover but don’t deliver when it comes to technical functionnalities. Droid X is a very superior all-around phone and you can be sure you won’t be disappointed.
