Well, after spending a whole day with one, I've come to a few conclusions.
First of all, anyone who thinks its laggy or slow needs to do one of two things. Either stop passing judgment based on a display model, or use a home replacement. :P
I did a few speed tests with a rooted droid1 at 1Ghz VS. the X. Seriously, it dogs the Droid1. Well, thats an over statement. They are comparable, but the X still wins out. Its quicker at switching from App to App; it's quicker at loading an App; and its quicker at running processes like populating the gallery. I think its a safe assumption to make that once this phone gets JIT with 2.2, it'll be one of the top two maybe three phones out there in terms of sheer speed...if not the fastest of the lot. I would really like to see some side by side comparisons with an IPhone4 youtube, here I come.
It's big, I mean really big lol. I've been playing with an Evo for about a week or so now, and honestly, I've gotten accustomed to the ginormous screens their putting on these things. Get this though, its thin..so to be honest, it doesn't feel like your carrying a brick in your shorts like you would think it would. It doesn't feel cheap, or weak either; feels rock solid, just like a Droid1. To have such a big beautiful screen, I think I would be willing to make the trade off.
Other than that, its a Droid1. Just as comfy to use for us native droid users, with all the same apps that your used to...of course, save the rooted stuff.
A few things though...
First off, the HDMI out. For the time being, it feels like an after thought. You can only view stuff in your gallery, which makes it seem like it's just something tacked on for the time being. To people who are familiar with the Droid1, you can think of a few things that started out like this (I.E. the stock messenger app). I'm guessing this is something that they left hanging like this to give developers some room to do what they do best. And I hope, I really hope, that there is an app coming down the pike soon that allows you to stream youtube or tv.com to your television. Hey, maybe when Hulu finally gets the rights to mobile videos, maybe even some of that glorious flash some of us have at the moment?
Second, not sure about how I feel about it having eFuse installed. Grrrrr. Its for the most part software, so there are definitely ways around it, but still...do they have to make it harder? Open source OS...check. Make it easy to change what you have made available for change....no check? Hm... Then what the F is the point? I digress. Minor gripe...
Any other gripes or props anyone can think of?
