The Droid X by Verizon is the latest addition to the Droid family. I've had the opportunity to try them out and review them, and it never gets dull!
These phones are amazing, fun, convenient (my number 1 need), and also provide the best of the basics, i.e. as a phone, it has the clearest connection with no interruption, dropped calls, etc.
The Droid X has the a very large screen. It is a 4.3 inch wide screen and it was the first thing I noticed when I opened the box. I typically prefer a keyboard, but having such a large touch screen helped when typing, selecting, etc. The touch screen seemed pretty sensitive as well. It has a nice quick response to it.
The camera is an impressive 8 mega pixel camera with a flash. The video camera is also impressive and useful. I would say it works just as well as a Flip camera would. And, having it in your phone means one less thing to carry! I did have some slight issues with blurry pictures with the camera, but it may have just been me since my husband tried it out and did not have any problems.
The Droid X operates with the Google platform and has the several thousand Android apps available. There were so many kid-friendly apps to choose from. You could tell that they've figured out that us moms give our kids our phones to keep them occupied at times:).
The Droid X has the convenient Universal email box. You can view each account individually, or all of your email accounts at the same time. I don't know if there is a limit on the number of email accounts because I just kept adding more in there and it never stopped me.
I love the seven home screens. And, I also like how quickly I can move from one to the next using the buttons at the bottom of the screen. I can go from the first to the last without having to swipe through each one.
I contacted Verizon when I found that I could not copy and paste text from emails and tweets but there might be an update that fixes that.
I love to twitpic, and until now, there wasn't an easy way to do it. It was possible, but it took more steps. Now, with the Droid X, it's very easy to twitpic!
I never realized how much I rely on a GPS until I started to trial these phones. The Droid X uses the Google map which allows you to get the GPS navigation system without having to pay extra each month for the VZ Navigator.
This phone can do so much more that I didn't even get a chance to try. I've heard you can hook it up to a TV to watch videos, you can get a movie account and watch movies on it, and so much more!
I hope you found this review helpful.
