It figures that Big Red would be rocking the biggest phone out of the group. The Droid X is latest and “greatest” effort from the Android family. Motorola set the smart phone world on fire with the release of the original “Droid”. Since that time Motorola has been pretty stagnant. As HTC released the Incredible this past spring people speculated if Motorola would be able to reclaim the Android crown within Verizon anytime soon. Before we could blink we had the massive Motorola Droid X in our hands. Due to the sheer height of the phone the screen actually appears bigger than the 4.3inch dimension that’s listed. This phone is truly an amazing Android experience and is one of the most enjoyable smart phones I’ve ever used.

The only downfall to this phone besides shabby battery life (HUGE SCREEN) and no sexy Sense UI (HTC Desktop feature) is the fact that Motorola isn’t going to stand behind this device as their mar-key phone for very long. The Droid 2 is slated for release very soon and Motorola feels that’s the phone that will allow them to reclaim the Android crown.
