Droid X vs. the world

youtube watching on a droid xSo, I just got my new Droid X last month and I did some extensive research before I made my purchase. I was using a Blackberry Curve 8330 for over two years and I loved it but I had this dream about finally owning an Apple product. I was originally considering the iPhone 4 but I REALLY hate AT&T. Being a long time Verizon customer, I had just rolled on to an awesome $50 credit for a new phone every two years (with a new contract of course) so, the choice was obvious...

Droid X

(angels singing glorious praises!)
As I have played with, tweaked, customized and learned about this glorious phone, I love it more and more. I'm not going to post every single tech spec about the Droid X but here are some of the advantages that the Droid X has over the other top tier smartphones out right now:

  • 4.3 inch screen! (biggest in the industry at the time of writing)
  • 720p HDMI video out
  • 8 Megapixel camera with dual LED flash
  • Live wallpapers (interactive and moving wallpapers)
  • Android Ap store (just as cool and probably more useful than the Apple Ap store)
  • Flash support (with Android 2.2. Froyo)
  • Mobile hotspot!
The only real competitors for the Droid X right now would be:
  • HTC EVO 4G (and soon the HTC Desire)
  • iPhone 4 (no HDMI out, no hot spot, smaller display, DOES have a forward facing camera and higher resolution RETINA screen)
So, I guess the final point I would like to make is: unless you are on AT&T get the Droid X. Its the most powerful and most customizable phone out right now for the techy types (that means those of you reading The Horse ;-)

What is your favorite phone right now? And why is it not the Droid X?
