    I mean, are you serious??? What horrid quality at 720p and full screen, look at all the jaggies and blurriness.
    How embarrassing this looks for this great phone:

    its a WHOLE lot better than the moto droid you have to remeber its a phone not a video recorder and just because it says 720p doesnt mean its HD

    Well the description say "Showing the 720P video recording capabilities on the Droid X" so I think he actually recorded in HD. But seriously, I hate to do it, but really compare that to iPhone 4 quality.

    I think besides the possibility of not being able to load custom roms, this is the biggest and really only disappointment with this phone. Kinda sucks but oh well.

    Also a decent browser comparison with iPhone 4 again, although the guy rarely hits both links at the same time lol:

    And what do you guys think of this guy's browser comparison video? The X did awful each time around, and sometimes wouldn't even load the page comparing to Incredible and iPhone4:

    Hmmmm, the hd video looked great and the two youtube links you posted are from the same reviewer. The first one was the followup. He also seems a little green. Hey if you don't like the phone don't buy it, simple.

    The stock browser on the X probably isnt as good as the other 2. No biggie. I have seen vids where the scrolling in the X browser was better than that like in the first video.

    "There's an app for that"

    He mentioned switching routers, but that doesnt explain the Inc connection being better on the first router.


    This is another review
