Motorola Droid X: Full Review & Testing

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

Please note that a more comprehensive review can be found on the Droid X vs Incredible website. 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. It is a know fact that the iPhone 4 is actually on top when it comes to pixel density, however Droid X has such a large screen that it compensates a lot for a few missing pixels.

Motorola also went bigger by including an 8-megapixel camera with dual LED flash that takes reasonably sharp photos as well as records video in 720p. Motorola included DLNA as well as HDMI support for the purpose of streaming media to your high definition 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.

A big difference with the first Droid is that Motorola decided not to include a physical keyboard to this phone. This was a sensible choice because although the telephone is huge, it is relatively thin compared to its overall size. An actual keyboard would’ve very likely made a device currently difficult to stuff into a pocket even harder. Still, using the bigger screen, the on-screen keyboard is easy to type with and Motorola attentively included a Swype keyboard for those who aren’t pleased with the Droid keyboard supplied.

One of the main selling points of the Motorola Droid X is that you can use it as a mobile 3G hotspot for tethering laptops, netbooks and other wireless devices to your 3G connection. Connecting these devices is quick and, depending on your connection, nets decent enough speeds.

There are so many smartphones that look excellent 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.
