The Motorola Droid X hits Verizon today, right before Apple confronts the press about iPhone 4 reception problems.
The Droid X is powerful Android phone, but I can't recommend it until Motorola improves the software for sharing photos and videos.
The Good: Not once did I get a message that a program crashed and needed to close, as I found to be the case when I tested HTC-brand Android phones like the Evo and MyTouch 3G Slide. The 8 megapixel camera was also a big plus, and I like the photo and video style options, including a very low quality video that makes it easier to send via text to friends. Also the larger screen makes it great to type on.
The Bad: Just like the Motorola Droid, there's a flaw when trying to send photos and videos via text message. It forces any vertical photo or video to be sent horizontally, so the person on the other end must tilt their head to see it. The same problem happens when you upload to Facebook. Considering the whole POINT of these phones is to be social and share moments, I'm quite disappointed that Motorola hasn't fixed this issue in the Droid X. Also, there's a very noticeable lag when opening and closing some programs.
Another downer is just a matter of what style you prefer, but I didn't like the Droid X's interface as much as phones powered by HTC Sense. Motorola's widgets are dull compared to the animations you can see with HTC Sense.
