"After two days: I love it"4.0 starson by davidgarth
Pros: Screen size
Cons: Battery life (is it ever good enough?)
Summary: I have come from a two year experience with a BlackBerry Curve. Unlike many smartphone users, I'm a businesses user with heavy email needs. The BlackBerry was fine for email, but weak on calendar and Internet and the apps are sadly lacking. I liked the BB keyboard, and was cautious about moving to a phone without one.
I have an iPad that I love. I had tried out the original Moto Droid, but the slide-out keyboard was useless with my big thumbs.
So far, the Droid X seems to be the perfect phone for me. The big screen size and excellent resolution are perfect for my aging eyes. The larger screen also helps makes the on-screen keyboard larger and easier to operate with large thumbs. Only the keyboard in landscape mode is usable for me. I do wish that the screen was a little brighter for outdoor use.(I couldn't use the Incredible at all in sunshine.)
The overall large size of the phone isn't a problem.for me. The processor handles the screen and all processes beautifully.
I'm a professional photographer, so it's hard for me to praise any smartphone camera. The Droid X has one of the better ones, but it doesn't do as well as an average digital point-and-shoot. But, it's nice to have a camera of this quality with you at all times.
I think the battery will make it through a typical work day for me, but without much to spare. It charges very quickly, however.
Here's my analysis of Android 2.1: It isn't quite as polished as iOS on the iPhone. But it is much more customizable. If you think it's fun to tinker with the interface, you'll be able to build a phone that's really customized for your preferences and the way you use your phone. My me, it was worthwhile and enjoyable. So far, the Android Market is somewhat behind the Apple iTunes App store in both quality and quantity of apps, but it's improving quickly and many developers are flocking to this operating system.
Overall, I'm very happy I made this transition.
