Motorola swings for the fences and hits a home run with the Droid X. Verizon Wireless' new flagship device delivers on almost every feature, making it one of Motorola's best-ever phones.

The Motorola Droid is the new King of the Hill over at Verizon Wireless. You want to do battle with other Android handsets? The Droid X is the phone to pick. It boasts top specs and top performance in a hardware design that is probably the best to come out of Motorola's engineering labs. The Droid X is big, beautiful, and bound to steal some hearts.

Sound Quality (muffled) and number of screens (configurable)

Sound quality: slightly muffled. Would you clarify if this is what you heard (speaker, speaker-phone, headset) or what the other person hears (microphone.)

👀 The reason I ask, is that the Motorola support forums, and my practical experience with the Droid (1 / Classic) is a muffled sound (microphone) heard by the other party. It seems to be user specific in that all of the people (20%-40% of users) who have reported muffled sound, when trying a different (or multiple) Motorola Droids, still had the muffled sound issue. The majority of users (60-80%)are not reporting muffled sound issues. 😲 Motorola has not acknowledged this as an issue; but believes if there is a "muffled perception" it is most likely location specific, ho...

External Antenna on Droid X?

I need an external antenna since I frequently travel in low signal areas. I know that the Droid (without X) has an antenna connector on the back under the battery cover (under a small plastic plug).

Does the Droid X have this connector? Do you know what size/type connector it is? Do you know where I can buy an "antenna adapter cable" for this connector (if there is one)?

Hdmi output on the phone

Does anyone know if the Droid Xs Video output capabilities will include being able to watch Blockbuster rented movies on an external screen ? I asked a Motorola Rep about it the other day, and they were not sure about the answer.
Nevermind, I found the answer. Protected media will not work on the HDMI output 😢

browser speed comparison

is droid x's browser faster than the evo 4g or nexus one with 2.2?
the evo, yes (from the review here), the n1 with 2.2 maybe not. Remember, the n1 has the new browser with better scripting.

But the droid is GETTING that browser soon. Androidcentral.com is going to run some benchmarks soon, but they said that on...
Unfortunately I don't have an evo4g or nexus 1 to test it against.

What's the 3D performance like?

How well do 3D games run on the Droid X? Does it have a dedicated GPU like the original Droid/Milestone?
Yes, it has a dedicated GPU, and from the benchmarks sites like androidcentral are showing, it's a 3d beast.
