Motorola has released the Droid X today at all Verizon stores nationwide. The Driod X now joins the iPhone 4 and HTC EVO 4G in the battle for the superphone top spot. Apple's iPhone is flawed with reception problems on the AT&T network and could result in users switching over to Verizon to purchase the HTC Android X. July and August should be interesting months to see how well the Droid X sells to consumers.
Battery life on the Droid X is impressive with an eight-hour talk time and 10 days standby time. The Droid X is equipped with a 1540 mAh Lithium (Li-ion) battery, which is bigger than the 1500 mAh Evo 4G Lithium (Li-ion) battery and 1420 mAh iPhone 4 Lithium (Li-ion) battery. This should put the Droid X ahread of the iPhone 4 and EVO 4G by actually having a cell phone battery that will last throughout the whole day.
Motorola Droid X Pros:
- Long battery life
- Google Android OS v2.1
- Bright, colorful, glossy 4.3 LCD screen
- 8GB built-in memory; 16GB card pre-installed
- 8-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash, HD video recorder
Motorola Droid X Cons:
- Low call volume

- Screen washes out in bright sunlight
