Motorola Droid X initial thoughts

Posted on 07. Jul, 2010 by .

The Droid X has landed on my desk.  I have been using it for maybe 15 minutes.  A few first thoughts:

  • I didn’t expect it to be THIS big (TWSS).  It is almost overwhelming at first.  I am sure I will adjust to it after a few hours of use.
  • The screen looks great
  • The buttons fit the phone, don’t feel out of place.
  • Camera looks sharp

That is it for now, after 20 min of use I am getting use to the size (TWSS).  I will have a full review coming up in the next week.
