Is Droid X a Wonderful Telephone?

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

Please note that there is a more comprehensive Droid X review available if you want. At 5-inches tall, Droid X is currently the biggest smartphone on the market, and sports a screen equal to the EVO 4G’s at 4.3-inches with a 854×480 resolution. 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 went bigger by including an 8-megapixel camera along with dual LED flash that can take sensibly sharp pictures and records video in 720p. Motorola incorporated DLNA in addition to HDMI support for the purpose of streaming media to your HD TV or other device.

Droid X has a very powerful processor: the 1GHz TI OMAP. With a processor like this one, you can switch between applications easily and browse through the phone lightning fast. 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. This was a smart option for the reason that although the telephone is massive, it’s relatively thin when compared with its overall size. A physical keyboard would’ve likely made a device already difficult to stuff into a pocket even more challenging. Still, with the bigger screen, the on-screen key pad is not hard to type with and Motorola carefully incorporated a Swype keyboard for those who aren’t pleased with the stock Android keyboard.

You don’t have access to the internet on your laptop? No problem! You can use your Droid X as a 3G hotspot to get a connection to the web from your other wireless devices. The connection you’re gonna get very easily is also faster than what you would imagine. Really an amazing feature that makes Droid X all the more appealing.

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