Hands on review of the new Motorola Droid X2

The first impression: it feels light. Not quite as light as the Droid Incredible 2 (4.78oz), but at 5.47oz it’s certainly lighter than my daily brickdriver EVO 4G (6oz.). It’s big, but the same size as the original DX; if you didn’t have a problem before, you’re probably not going to have a problem now (I don’t). And as with the original DX, it has that lovely lady lump for the camera. Powering the phone on takes about 30 seconds until you can use it – not bad at all, but that time will increase as more apps are installed and accounts are setup. It’s also not as fast as the quick boot feature found on new HTC devices, but it’s still faster than the Android devices of yesteryear. Speaking of the devices of yesteryear… this certainly isn’t one. They’ve essentially taken the shell of the Droid X and given it all new innards:

  • 4.3" qHD (540×960) LCD
  • 1GHz Tegra 2 (dual-core)
  • 8GB mSD card, 4GB internal (12GB total)
  • 8MP camera (720p video recording) with dual LED flashes
  • 802.11b/g/n
  • Android 2.2 (Gingerbread update is promised)
