Best so far!Posted .
What a great phone! I love this phone's high functionality. I do enjoy all the apps, that are free in many cases. its a light and slim phone. The battery does last quite long, usually all day, I have several chargers, I have the accessory kit, which came with the car gps window kit, the desktop stand and the car charger. It is very nice. The phone can be a little challenging to text on because its touch screen, but you can speak or swipe to text which makes it easier, but if you are talking to text clearly you are alone and not some place that would be loud or not private. All the usual stuff on the phone, alarm clock, email, 8mg pxl camera, video camera, ect. I also like the wifi and 3g hotspot, although that is an additional cost. I believe I am very happy and glad I didn't wait for the apple iphone from verizon. I like free apps and I like the larger screen size vs my itouch smaller size. I like apple products, don't get me wrong but this phone seems superior to the 3gs that my friends have, and really how often would you really video phone call someone anyways??? Hope this helps you make your decision! :)I would recommend this to a friend

Very happy with my decisionPosted .
When my iPhone 3GS started failing I started looking for a new phone. It was pretty much between the DX and the iPhone 4 since you can't get the incredible or evo4G anywhere. I gotta say this phone has exceeded my expectations in just about every category. The DX is very easy to navigate and use and the battery life is outstanding especially considering it has such a large screen. My major concern before purchasing this phone was listening to everyone that said it was too big and wouldn't easily fit in my pocket and would be awkward to hold and use. Let me tell you, it really isn't that big at all. In fact, it is only .5" taller and .2" wider than my iPhone. Hardly a huge difference if you ask me. I have not had any issues fitting it my pocket or using it on a regular basis. The only issue I have with the DX so far is that it does not easily sync with my Mac. After playing around with it for a while I ended up paying 2.99 and purchasing a app that made the syncing process a lot easier. Once my music and videos were loaded it was apparent that the media player interface on the device is inferior to the one on the iPhone. It still functions just fine for listening to music it just does not have all the features found on iPhones. The media player aside, the rest of this phone is simply amazing. Navigation works well, voice recognition is outstanding, customizable home screens make it easy to access all of most important features of the phone, call quality is great, and my favorite new feature is SWYPE for texting and e-mailing. I had never used SWYPE before I got the DX. It only took a few minutes to get used to and now I can text and write e-mails 3x faster than I could on any previous phone. For those of you who are not familiar with it, SWYPE allows you to type on the phone without having to hit each individual letter. If you are someone who texts a lot or responds to a lot of e-mails on your phone this a GREAT feature to have. So if you were like me and are trying to decide between the two phones, here is the best advice I can give you. If you want a simple phone that you can use mainly for music, videos and games you will probably be better off with an iPhone. If you want a phone with more advanced features and a better web browsing experience I suggest you go with the Droid X. I have been extremely happy with my decision to switch.I would recommend this to a friend

NO EVO 4!!....... YES DROID X!!!Posted .
So I was tired of ATT and the Iphone and wanted something new. I had an iphone for about 3 years and was happy with it for about 2 and a half years. I started getting a little bored so I thought......I will take the leap to Android and see where it goes. My first Android phone was an HTC EVO 4 with sprint. I was a little irritated with Sprint from the very beginning with the misleading plans.....unlimited data, unlimited texting and 450 mins all for just 69.99.......THEN they add the $10 premium fee and Sprints misc $5 fees, then taxes, AND a $4.99 fee for not letting them debit my checking account monthly. Basically it was the same as ATT. OK.....sorry im venting a little.....so the EVO4 was GRRRRREAT!!....for about a day! The battery drained fast and furious!.....I called HTC, did some research and I found out a ton of tips to conserve battery life. download a task manager, Turn wifi off, turn gps off, turn 4g off, turn tower locator to only sprint, reduce the brightness to low, turn off sync to email......HMMM! My $300 phone is a fancy brick now......and for the record didnt help. I dumped Sprint and the EVO 4 and went online and did more research. The Droid x caught my eye so I called Verizon and pre ordered it. I got the Phone Friday (the day after release). I opened it and turned it on and it was about 3/4 charged.....I activated it and put pandora on and immediately started using it. I kept watching the battery and I was impressed to see it was still 3/4 charged after 3 hrs. I got the phone at 10:00 am and didnt get home until about 5:30 and it was still in the green...barely....but I was amazed! I plugged it in and fully charged it and I will have you know that the battery life is MUCH MUCH better!! So basically Im writing those who are thinking of getting the EVO 4!!! everything is the same EXCEPT you dont get the front facing camera. The screen is better on the Droid X but just a tad, you get 24 GB on the Droid X as opposed to the 16 GB on the EVO 4. The 4G network I never really got to try with sprint because I forgot it was always OFF!!!....per Sprints seggestions for prolonging battery life. I think the Droid x feels better in the palm of your hand and I really like the camera button on the side with the Droid X. I dont really care for the "lump" on the back of the droid x and i dont care for the look of the camera itself....it looks....well old! but other then that I am VERY VERY happy with the Droid X and Verizon!! ...NO FREE BUMPER INCLUDED :( Hope this helps.I would recommend this to a friend

One of the best Android phonesPosted .
What can I say about the Droid X that hasn't already been said? It really is one of the best Android smartphones on the market and I would even venture to say that it is one of the best smartphones even when stacked up against offerings from Black Berry, Apple, LG, Samsung, and HTC. Motorola took a more simplistic route when implementing Android 2.1 (version 2.2 was released for the Droid X back in September but mine still came running 2.1) by relying heavily on Android's default interface. This still isn't stock Android as seen on the Droid and Droid 2 but it is not as flashy as HTC's Sense interface tweaks. Motorola has added part of the Blur package with the Droid X but it has been drastically improved upon. Blur still focuses heavily on social networking (ie Facebook, Twitter, whatever else the tweens are into these days) but it also gives you options for Gmail in-box monitoring, RSS feeds from your websites of choice, and I like the favorites screen. You can also customize the size of each and every widget offered through Blur. It isn't as eye catching as what HTC has been doing but it is still a major improvement over previous Blur releases. The most surprising aspect, for me, was the Droid X's battery life. I initially thought that I would have to charge my phone at least once a day, maybe more as the large display would drain the battery rather quickly. That is not the case as I have to charge my Droid X once every other day even stretching it out to two full days between charges. It is a drastic improvement over my previous LG that had me recharging it at least once a day despite being less than a year old. The Droid X is not perfect though. As I said, HTC's Sense layer is better looking than Moto Blur and stock Android. The Droid X's camera app also isn't as advanced as what HTC offers. Still image quality, while being quite good, also leaves much to be desired. Then again, cellphones and smartphones have always trailed behind even point-and-shoot cameras in terms of still image quality. The Droid X's camera works when you want to take pictures, just don't expect stellar results. Low light performance without the flash was also abysmal though the two LED lights used for the flash can light up an entirely dark room. 720p video recording looks about on par with one of those pocket HD recorders. It isn't anything great but I have come across much worse quality. Again, low light performance is pretty bad. The nice thing about the Droid X and video recording is that it can use three different microphones for audio. There are different settings that use all three (general), the front one (when you want to capture just the subject being recorded), or the back one for when you are narrating something. The different modes helped a little and are definitely a step in the right direction for integrating a camera, camcorder, and smartphone. The display on the Droid X will be the big draw. It looks great, web browsing is awesome on such a large display, typing with the virtual on-screen keyboard is a lot easier, etc. It has a lower pixel density than the iPhone and even the Droid Incredible but I don't think that is a big deal unless you plan on using the phone half an inch from your face. I flat out enjoy browsing the web on my Droid X while getting the full experience (ie HTML 5 and Flash). I also think this is one of the fastest web browsing phones out there. It routinely beats my 4G iPod touch when opening the same sites on my wi-fi connection even when the Droid is loading Flash content. Overall, I feel that the Droid X is the current "king" of Android smartphones and definitely a contender for the top smartphone of 2010. It has a solid design, the display makes it very easy and appealing to use, the TI processor is screaming fast, the video camcorder is quite good in standard light conditions, websites (even ones with Flash content) load in a matter of seconds, Android 2.2 (and soon 2.3) is one of the best mobile platforms out there, and you use all of this on Verizon's solid network. The Droid X isn't perfect but it is still a really good smartphone. CES is just around the corner and that is where Motorola will likely unveil a couple of new phones for Verizon's LET (ie 4G) network. They will probably rock a front facing camera and even a dual-core ARM chip. That is all fine but the current architecture won't be outdated for another couple of years (apps that support slower chips running at 533MHz are and will continue to be released for a long, long time), 4G networks are in their infancy while requiring expensive data options, and video chat is neat but it can be problematic even on a 3G network (one of the reasons why another company made it wi-fi only). I would not hesitate buying a Droid X now even with the imminent announcements at CES. It is a great Android handset on one of the best wireless networks out there.I would recommend this to a friend

I am in love with this phonePosted .
Yes, it's big compared to many other smartphones, and a bit of trouble to get used to if you have small hands like I do. I willingly traded off for that because I wanted a big display, and you can't get a big display without a big phone, so I'm not understanding those complaints from other reviewers. I carry my phone in my purse, not on my belt, so it's not a problem for me. My husband, who does carry his phone on his belt, is in love with it and wants mine. This phone is fast and reliable, and my signal is MUCH better than with my previous Verizon phone. I couldn't even get a signal on that one when I was at work, so I have no complaints about the antenna. Signal will depend on the device antenna and the carrier's coverage. Some of the complaints on here are about battery life, but the only battery problems I've had are ones I've brought on myself. I always order an extended battery and keep the stock one as a backup. My battery issues with this phone have always been related to having left wifi on when I'm not using it, or leaving the GPS on when I'm not using it, an app I've downloaded that drained it, or a live background I've downloaded. You can always check your battery manager to see what's using up the battery.I would recommend this to a friend

Want something that does everything for you by youPosted .
I had a difficult debate for this phone. I was previously with another carrier, and had to pay some early termination fees. But I'm very glad that I did. The other carrier did not have great phones to choose from, even with the newer Galaxy S at its disposal, the bloatware, the restriction of 3rd party apps, and the new tiered pricing for data plans completely turned me off. That's not to mention a certain phones antenna issues as well as the relocation of the proximity sensor causing the phone to re-activate during calls which results in inadvertent hang ups or turning the speakerphone on in your ear. The Droid X has amazing battery life for what it is. It's also completely customizable to be tailored for your use. Its ease of use and learning curve are extremely user friendly. If you think you need to do something in order to accomplish a certain task, odds are very good that your assumption is correct! The display is gorgeous, and when I adjust my brightness settings myself, it's perfect to save the battery, but can be instantly adjusted to see outdoors with no glare or washout. Call reception is as good as the network and the area you're in, but when you do have signal, the call volume is fantastic (I keep it turned most of the way down), and the other party can hear me clearly, even on a windy day outside. I actually purchased two phones, one for myself and another for my fiancé. She is not as tech-savvy as myself, and she has no problems using the phone daily. It's also stood up to her daily abuse as a kitchen supervisor in a high paced chef-led environment. I'm both a civilian Mechanical Engineer, which uses the phone a lot for conversions, research, and email, and I'm also in the Army National Guard, and this phone has stood up to some fast paced training. It also doesn't hurt to pass the time if I'm bored! The only con that I can really tell of is that I'm afraid in the future there may not be a device with this size screen to replace what we're now very much accustomed to. Anything this phone can't do out of the box, you can find or build an app for! Fantastic!I would recommend this to a friend

Best Android on VZW's Network, Maybe Even Ever!Posted .
I used to be a dedicated Blackberry user for years. When the iPhone and Android based devices started hitting the markets, I was one of those individuals defending Blackberry devices vs. these newer and faster smartphones. Over the Holiday, I decided to walk into a Verizon store and started playing with some of the Android based devices. I've got to tell you, this device blew my Storm2, or any other device for that matter, out of the water! The 4.3" screen size is great. The touch screen is responsive and virtual querty is easy to get used to. The Voice to Text recognition works amazing and is extremely accurate. It's 8MP camera works excellent. The 720p video camera quality is good, but not great. The battery life is average for a smartphone with this type of display and capability. It is, however, much better than the Droid Incredible's battery life. Tinkering with some of the power settings and/or getting an app from the market can help improve the battery life. Throw in the hundreds of thousands of apps available from the Market and you've got yourself a device that can and in many ways finally defeats the iPhone! In my own opinion, the iPhone's retina display screen and front facing camera is really the only thing it has on the Droid X! If you are looking for a fast, reliable, and fully customizable smartphone, the Droid X should be your next device! You will not be disappointed! Unfortunately for Blackberry, while the business world loves you, you have forgotten about the rest of us and have unfortunately fallen behind.I would recommend this to a friend

It's a BEAST. Hands down best phone ever.Posted .
I have had all types of phones from iPhone to Blackberry but once I held Droid X in my hands it made all other phones look embarrassing. This is a beast. I don't think it could have been made any better. So far it has been able to take anything I throw at it. At first if felt big but after just a few minutes it felt right. Everything else felt small. Its super light for the size. Its slim. The bump where the camera is makes is easy to hold against your ear. The screen is amazing. The size is perfect for anything you do on it. It is super clear. Movies look awesome. Pair it with the MotoRokr headphones and you got your self a personal entertainment system. It is very responsive and fast. MotoBlur make is a bit sluggish sometimes but that's because there are too many widgets on there initially. You don't need all of them running all the time. Once I removed the widgets I did not like the phone just took off. Its worth every penny. Can't wait for Froyo, it will make this phone the best hand held device in the world.I would recommend this to a friend
