Comprehensive Motorola Droid X Overview

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

Please note that there is a more comprehensive Droid X review available if you want. 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 with dual LED flash that takes reasonably crisp photographs and also records video in 720p. Motorola integrated DLNA and HDMI support designed for streaming media to your high definition TV or any other device.

The 1GHz TI OMAP is the processor found inside the Motorola Droid X, a processor so fast that it maximizes the top quality of user experience. 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.

A big difference with the first Droid is that Motorola decided not to include a physical keyboard to this phone. It was a wise choice because although the telephone is large, it is fairly thin in comparison to its overall size. An actual keyboard would’ve likely made a device already not easy to stuff into a pocket even more difficult. Still, using the larger screen, the on-screen keyboard is simple to type with and Motorola thoughtfully incorporated a Swype keyboard for individuals who aren’t satisfied 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. 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.

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.
