It's good, and it's a pretty enjoyable execution of Android 2.1, but it's not a must-have phone -- especially in light of the Droid Incredible and the upcoming Droid 2.

The Motorola Droid X takes the crown for the most powerful Android smartphone away from the HTC Droid Incredible.

USA Today
The new handset from Motorola and Verizon Wireless is an impressive, feature-packed Android handset that will give the iPhone 4 a run for its money.

The Motorola Droid X makes another fine addition to Verizon's Android family, bringing with it a rich multimedia experience and more connectivity features.

Even with more killer Android handsets on the horizon, I think you’ll be happy with the Droid X for a long time. Bravo, Motorola and Verizon.

Right now the DROID X is comfortably among the best Android devices you can buy; in a few months time, with Android 2.2 in place, it may be the Google phone to beat.

Personally, we’d stick with the Droid Incredible, but if you like the larger screen and don’t mind having a larger phone in your pocket, by all means, the Droid X is a great option.

All things considered, it's a showstopping phone whose potential is mutilated by ill-considered, ugly software that's poorly done.
