Love it. I agree with the other poster no reason to wait for the droid pro because there will be some other better phone shortly after.
Love my X. Have no idea why everyone was so concerned about screen size. I actually didn't play with one in person first, I just went for it. I think 4.3" is perfect for me (average sized hands and I wear skinny jeans sometimes, still not a problem).
I love my Droid X. I went from a iPhone 3GS to a Droid Incredible to the Droid X all within a 4 month time frame and the Droid X is my absolute favorite. The screen size is great, just borderline of being too big. The phone is quick, responsive, and has a great UI and feel. The battery life is surprisingly good for how much I use it. I suggest everyone should get one.
I absolutely love my DX...everyday, I think Wow, what can't this thing do? I too was concerned about the size, but after I had it for a few hours, the size never crossed my mind again and I'm a woman with small hands.
Love my DX
I no longer have an interest in physical keyboards, especially since Swype is so insanely fast and pretty good with accuracy from my experiences.
I also have no interest in the smaller screen, especially with the catcher's mitt-sized hands I have.
So, in essence, I am extremely happy with my Droid X. I find something cool to tweak or alter several times a day and I am slowly making it my own. Performance is good. Battery isn't the nightmare some people report it to be (could be better, sure) and it is just comfortable. It flows. It feels natural.
Just wanted that out of the way.
However... the editing is so easy on this phone with the on screen keyboard, especially with the crosshairs and long press options.
But, everyone has a preference. I loved physical keyboards (had them on my last 3 phones) for a long time but the screen on this phone has totally changed my view.
In the end, we all use what is more comfortable for us.
Actually, I have a Droid X (OK, technically it's my girlfriend's but I'm on it more than she is). I haven't tried much text editing/coding on it. I'll try it out! One of the big reasons I like the physical keyboard, besides freeing up space to see more text on screen, is that you can do key combos very easily. This comes in especially handy when coding something like regular expressions.
I'm guessing that typing that on the virtual keyboard will take longer, but maybe not. Now that I think of it, some keyboards allow you to long press on a key to get the Alt-character. It may actually be faster and easier on a virtual keyboard. I'll have to check it out.Code:$whatever =~ s/^.*(DROID).*?$/$1/;
Thanks for the influence!
