Motorola Droid X
Be ready for:
-More force closings
-Data not connecting
-Pinch zoom loosing quality
-Battery drains faster
-Home screen having to load after exiting an app
-Flash 10.1 which means more load time for websites due to Flash advertisements.
For those who's seen my past posts will know I was Android "fanboy" but this is the experience I've had with mine and I couldn't take it anymore. I'm back to using a dumbphone and using my iPod Touch for all my smartphone needs. ...
List of Improvements
-Ability to move Apps to SD card
-Browser seems quicker
-Different Battery Profiles
-Ability to turn screen 270 degrees
-I'm not sure if Flash 10.1 was part of the update or if I need to d/l it from marketplace (hopefully someone knows)
-google search bar is slightly different
-lock/silence has a different look and is now lock/vibrate from the looks of it
-smoother window switching when swiping
-added VZ Navigator and Quickoffice
-I'm sure the standard security enhancement were made as well.. I haven't checked and don't really care

Launcher Pro crashes my Droid X
Droid X Apps & Holster
I was hoping I could get some comments and thoughts. I just ordered my Droid X and should have it in about 2 wks. I know there are hundreds/thousands of apps. I was wondering if others could offer suggestions on the MUST HAVE apps. Also, how to get those or any apps. I believe it's from the Android Market. However, I don't know how to get to it or view what's available. Espically the free apps. Is it an app pre-installed or a website you access?
My other question is about protecting the phone. Does anyone use the holster that Verizon sells? Any comments or opinions good or bad. I have been going back and forth on whether to get the Carbon Fiber case (no belt clip) and carry in my pocket. Or go with the holster and have ...
Android 2.2 When?????
I've stepped up (from a BB 9550 to the "DROID X")and I'm loving every "step". Goodbye RIM, you've just got "TORCHED". Ok ok, enough with the dry humor. I'm needing a lil help with this unit. I'm trying to figure out how to make my phone vibrate and play the tone when I recieve an alert (sms, mms & email). I'm sure you're well aware that there wasn't much in the box. Lol. So any advice, tips and tricks would be greatly appreciated. I'll continue to read on to learn more about the device.
Thanks and have a super day,
Text & Font Size Adjustability
I've been looking at a couple Droids (droid 2 & X), since I have an upgrade available soon, and was wondering how adjustable the fonts/text items are (as far as size goes) on the Droid X.
I have a visual impairment and always look for a phone that at least lets me adjust the font size of texts & emails. Of course menus matter too, but it's the messaging that matters most to me.
Having not owned an Android phone, I'm assuming that there's at least some adjustability native to the OS. I'm also hopeful that whatever isn't available natively can be handled with an app.
Can someone help me get a clue regarding this area of functionality?
Thanks in advance!

Got the Droid X... have a few questions
Does anyone know of a way to make it less "jittery"? Also, when it updates to Android 2.2, what all is expected to change?
Thanks in advance.
VIDEO: My Thoughts on the Seidio Innocase Surface for Droid X
Before I get my Droid X I used to be a BlackBerry user, and I created several popular videos giving my thoughts on accessories (as well as tips and tricks; I created the "Paper Strip Method" video for cleaning the trackball). I do this so that people can make informed and insightful buying decisions.
Well, I'm back now with my new phone - the Motorola Droid X - and have just completed a video taking a look at the Seidio Innocase Surface. You can check it out a the link below. Expect more videos in the future!
Screen & Case
After reading almost every post in this forum I think my decision is made on the X. I do have some basic questions I am hoping other will offer comments and opinions on.
My first reaction when seeing the phone was. It's like carrying my laptop around. That based on the size of the device. I fully understand why the big screen is an advantage and more a pro than a con. But has anyone with the phone said. This is crazy and too big in comparison to others like Droid2 or Incredible? For example I am coming from a Dare.
My next question is about carrying the phone. At the risk of sounding like a total nerd. I currently carry my Dare on my belt. Yes, I know they have belt cases & holsters for the X. But is it really possib...
