"DON'T STOP, BELIEVIN', HOLD ON TO THAT FEEEEEELIN'" Sorry, Journey reference. Warning, if you are easily offended by observations, then you may want to look away from your computer screen at this point. (+1 for putting a warning in hypothesis form) Concept: Once the Droid X gets Froyo, it will be the most superior phone on the market. ---- I came from, believe it or not, a Motorola RAZR. I always loved smartphones but never had a use for one until now - in my last year of high school. So, before making the investment, I researched EVERY smartphone on the market. ---- Almost immediately, I was able to rule out any phone on T-Mobile or AT&T (Sprint is o.k.), because those networks are trash. I'm not even going to sugar coat it - I have been on both in the past, my family members have been on both in the past, and my friends have been on both networks. Verizon is superior to all of them. I knew I would want an Android phone, and I knew I would want something top-of-the-line. Something that would not suck hardcore after 2 months. It came down to a few advanced phones: the EVO 4G, Incredible, and Droid X. I looked up the specs for each one, wrote them down on a poster board, and compared all of them side by side. I went to every review website (I am not easily influenced by nonsense, so bias is ignorable) and watched every review video on each phone. As implied earlier, I have close friends with all 3 phones. One had an Incredible, one had a Droid X, and the other an EVO. I talked to them, and of course each defended his/her respective phone to the death. ---- Ultimately I found the Droid X to have the least drawbacks. It lacks a front-facing camera, and people have complained about the color and size. I have gigantor hands, so the Droid X fits me perfectly. AMOLED is a gimmick, and it worked very well at getting (ignorant) people to buy phones with over-saturated false colors. (T-Mobile now advertises SUPER AMOLED. What?!?! You mean to tell me SUPERMAN MADE THIS SCREEN?) It's a new technology that still needs a lot of work (such as, being able to see the screen when that huge star that occasionally lights up the planet is visible). Concerning the front-facing camera, I can deal with it. That might go against all of the "future-proofing" of technology that I like to have, but when I realized how little I would use it, and how pointless it is in actuality, then I knew I would be fine. This is a gimmick, along with '4G' speeds (on a mediocre network). ---- In conclusion, I found the Droid X to be an all-around solid device. Motorola is a Texas based company working with Texas hardware manufacturers, and Android is a Google software based in California. Take what you will out of these facts, but I believe that this allows for a well-rounded and high-quality product. An Insight: I remember considering just a few years ago buying a $200 camera/camcorder with worse video quality and a 10Mpx camera. I'm glad I held out for the Droid X. The human eye cannot detect the difference between even a 5Mpx image and 6Mpx image, let alone an 8Mpx and 10Mpx image (of the same camera design/hardware). That difference comes down to whether or not you like to blow up (zoom in on) your pictures a lot. That being said, I'd like to see where phone manufacturers take smartphones (now quasi-officially called "devices") in the coming years. Obviously I can see the software improving (which you can update on your phone) and the processor speed improving (dual-core devices, anyone?). They could take 1080p video, but that doesn't concern me. They could upgrade to 10Mpx cameras, but that also doesn't concern me. Screen size might hover around 4.5" at a maximum. A Personal Note: The Droid X is incredibly fast, battery efficient, and good-looking. And that's without Froyo. Yeah, and it has a separate GPU. Which makes it a fantastic device. Droid X ftw. A Very Personal Note: I'm hungry. Time to eat a pizza. Richard.
