04 Jan The Motorola Droid X: Bigger Is Always Better
The Motorola Droid X is the smart phone of the century. Developed by Verizon Wireless, this Android OS smartphone has a very wide display, a 1 GHz processor, an 8 megapixel camera or camcorder, and a staggering 16 GB of storage for all your multimedia needs. Verizon Wireless offers this Droid cell phone for $200. The price may overwhelm you, but the features make up for its rather exorbitant price.
Style, Build, and Design
Size matters for the Motorola Droid X. Its wide and tall, but just enough for you to carry around or slide down your pocket. Its lightweight and incredibly sleek, with rounded corners and a top-heavy design. The Motorola Droid X feels fantastic when held due to its soft touch rubberized back plate for that steadier grip. If you’re clumsy with a habit of shoving phones down the table, this phone will not budge. The screen catches your fingerprints, as with other touch phones, so obsessive compulsive people will have to wipe the front area regularly, but the back is rubberized and easy to maintain.
The Motorola Droid X boasts of its 4.3-inch display that features huge, vivid, and crystalline graphics with an 854 by 480 resolution. It maintains that sophisticated feel when viewing text, videos or photos but will take some getting used to due to the wideness of the screen. You won’t be worrying about small icons that make you feel like a monster with fat thumbs, the Motorola Droid X has large icons which will give your fingers an easy time.
The Motorola Droid X is humongous. Its incredibly powerful, and its bringing a brand new meaning and strength to the whole Droid line, making it the most popular Android smart phone as of the moment. It’s half an inch thick with a bulbous head that houses the camera. This rather top-heavy design is perfect for your fingers to rest just beneath the camera, so your fingers won’t cover the camera lens. The Motorola Droid X is a huge piece of metal and plastic with stellar features and remarkable capabilities. It looks sophisticated, with a touch of intellectual class perfect for a businessman.
Software and Features
The Motorola Droid X is as fast as a speeding bullet. Gamers will never be disappointed with hanging, lagging, or inconsistent graphics since this phone is a monster in the speed department. The Motorola Droid X comes with a 16-gigabyte microSD card where you can store all of your music and photos, but it will be used by the phones applications as well. All these great features are powered by a 1540mAh battery as opposed to your regular 1500mAh phone batteries. This is just perfect for those long hours on the phone or excessive twitter sessions. This Droid phone conserves battery power unlike any other wide screen phones, but keeping an extra battery in hand wouldn’t hurt either.
There are seven home screens which you can customize in the Motorola Droid X. You can put in it whatever you want be it widgets, icons, or shortcuts. For greater usability, the Motorola Droid X decided to give you three humungous icons at the bottom of your homescreen: the application launcher, the number dialer, and your phonebook. If these doesn’t make sense to you because you’d like a huge icon shortcut for games to satisfy your geeky side, then you can customize, replace, or switch these buttons by installing a new launcher. Adjustable widgets and a fantastic variety of applications are a great addition to this smart phone making it the most flexible Droid Verizon has ever created by far. Its photo and video taking skills also make the Motorola Droid X extremely formidable. It sports an 8-megapixel camera with dual LED flashes attached to the rear of the phone. The photo and video quality are sharp, lush, and incredibly detailed as it sports crystal clear graphics and luscious candy colors.
The Motorola Droid X is the best Android smartphone of the century. With its compelling features, fantastic usability and flexibility, the new Droid phone is a must for people who want a super-powered phone.
