Yesterday I posted some random thoughts on my experience with the Droid X over on the GDGT Droid X page. I'm reposting my thoughts here, after the break. This isn't my full review or take on the Droid X. I will post some more in-depth thoughts later this week.
I switched from an iPhone 3GS on ATT to the Droid X last week and I'm not looking back. The device is a breath of fresh air. Having been an iPhone user since version 1 I was a little worried how I might transition the Droid X. Most of the apps I had on iPhone are on Android which has made the transition pretty easy. I love the 4.3 inch screen; it's gorgeous! The 1GHz processor is really snappy and the flexibility of the device is nice.
Some Android newcomers may not like the flexibility as it does mean the device is more complex to use. You have to learn where to go to configure notification settings, how to manage your battery profile, how to shut down apps you don't want running in the background etc. But for a diehard techie like me these things have been welcomed.
Motorola has done quite well with the Droid X, leaving most of the vanilla Android features untouched and adding their own unobtrusive widgets and apps you can safely ignore if you want.
I think the 4.3 inch screen is going to become the industry standard in mobile devices. It's simply a sweet spot that hadn't been hit before now. I'm quite pleased with the Droid X and have only picked up my iPhone once since July 15. And that was to use the Apple Remote app to control my Apple TV.
If you are looking for a new Android device I highly recommend the X.
