Review: Motorola's Droid X
The Droid X is an all-around great phone. There's very little to complain about. Perhaps the biggest reason to test it out before committing to a two-year contract is the big-ness, er, size of the Droid X. It is as big as cell phones get, and some may find the size unappealing.
The Droid X nails the basics. Call quality is excellent, contacts management is rich and well-developed; and every form of messaging known to man is available from the Droid X. So far, battery life has been above average for an Android handset.
The Droid X performs well with music and video content, though Apple's iPhone still wins the media race. The various video options on the Droid X make it a better video device than most other Android handsets to date, though you may find yourself paying for that content (Blockbuster, V CAST Video).

The camera does an outstanding job at capturing images accurately and with detail. The revised camera software is more finger friendly, and this makes interacting with the camera a breeze. The only disappointment is that the Droid X's camera still isn't as fast as it should be.
The Droid X comes with the solid Android browser, access to the Android Market, and has apps such as Skype Mobile.
Motorola has crafted a fine phone in the Droid X, the best in Verizon Wireless' current line-up.
