Is Motorola Droid X a Good Telephone?

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

Please note that a more comprehensive review can be found on the Droid X vs Incredible website. 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). Sure, the iPhone 4 boasts a higher pixel density, but the mammoth screen of the Droid X more than makes up for the lack of a few pixels here and there.

Motorola also decided to go bigger by including an 8-megapixel camera along with dual LED flash that takes sensibly crisp pictures and also records video in 720p. Motorola incorporated DLNA in addition to HDMI support for the purpose of streaming media to your high-def TV or any other device.

Inside the Motorola Droid X beats the heart of a 1GHz TI OMAP processor that handles tasks quickly and with no lag. Also impressive is the memory available. 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. This was a sensible choice because although the phone is large, it is somewhat thin compared to its general size. An actual keyboard would’ve very likely designed a device already difficult to stuff into a pocket even harder. Still, with the larger screen, the on-screen keyboard is simple to type with and Motorola thoughtfully included a Swype keyboard for those who aren’t pleased with the Droid keyboard supplied.

Another good 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.

While there are plenty of products that offer style over substance, the Droid X delivers plenty of both in a form factor that is sure to elicit plenty of ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ when you bring it out.
