I have owned this phone now for approx 6mo. I decided to buy it for the camera/video capability it has. Having a new granddaughter. I wanted to have a camera handy all the time w/out having to pull out My camera out of my purse. When I first got it, I said to them.."Well, I guess this will have to do a lot of reading to learn to use this phone!". The salesperson said to me, "No, actually it doesn't come w/a book. You can come in & take free classes every Saturday morning @9a.m." I thought.. "Are you serious?? 9a.m. on a Saturday to learn to USE MY PHONE???!!" Well, I just took it home & began "playing" with it. I have yet to take a class. And, I will have to say..this phone is VERY user friendly. Even though I have discovered it is like a "little computer" in your hand, I have yet to do anything to it to "mess it up". I've taken some GREAT pictures with it, videos, etc. It has setting on it like a camera. It's pictures come out good enough to print and share. I took a picture in the dark of the full moon & the skyline in my backyard (which is VERY dark) and, you could see the line of the trees with the glow of the moon behind it. If you are into "Facebook", it will take you right in there & it works just as if you were at home on your pc. It looks a little different since you aren't on a full pc screen. But, you can take a pic, click share, it will pull up another screen and give you approx 15 ways to share it. Whether it be facebook, email, txt msg, & many more. Within 5sec, your picture is live on facebook. I like this since it also has a satellite on it that you can click on in the facebook & it will pull up EVERY wi-fi near you. Most places have them. And, you can share where you took the picture at & just as in facebook it gives you room for a comment. Another GREAT feature on this phone is the FREE GPS that comes w/the unlimited internet/web access. It is SO accurate. It is comparable to one that you would pay $100's of dollars for to mount on your dash. If you make a wrong turn, it will zone in on your car & re-route you back to where you are going. Once you reach your destination & have slowed down your vehicle, a REAL picture of your location shows on your screen. So, no guessing. The picture of the house, business, etc is right there for you to see. Amazing!! No more need for "Map-quest" :) Also, while you are in any of these programs, calls can still come in, if you want to answer you can, hang up & the program picks up right where you left off before you got the call. It holds a good charge & charges quickly. The only thing that is a negative to this phone (and it's not a big-deal) is keeping the screen clean since you are always holding it to your face. But, if I'd buy some screen covers, THAT would be solved!:) The bluetook capability is great & works quite a ways away from the phone. The speed of the downloads & the internet is the same as the wireless pc that I use at home. No waiting, VERY fast! utube & you also can share anything from the internet & utube at a touch. Hit share, up pops a window, hit share & up pops your address book. My sister also has Verizon & she gets my shares within seconds of me sending. Another great feature..Free Pandora music, great sound w/equilizer. If I had it to do over, I'd buy it again. Thank you Motorola for once again creating a GREAT cell! And, VERIZON.. I wouldn't change a thing. I've been nothing but happy w/them. And, I have had other providers. I love my DroidX!!
I've always been a fan of how Blackberry works with instantaneous email and business-like feel, but the Storm2 9550 from Verizon Wireless adds a bit of consumer to the lineup. Let me explain what I mean.
At face value, the Storm2 is much like its predecessor but includes better features such as WiFi and App World allowing for downloading of apps to customize your Storm to your liking. I personally like the improved touch screen which has five points of navigation as compared to the original Storm's one. The Storm2 also is thinner and sleeker than the previous Storm, making it easy to store in a purse or pocket as needs be.
Other features include 256MB of onboard memory for email, apps, and downloads, microSD slot (behind the battery door), 3.2MP camera with flash, WiFi as I mentioned, SurePress technology for input on the keyboard, 3.5mm connector for a headset or headphones, SIM card connectivity, micro-USB connection for your charger and USB cable, and a 1400mAh level battery for high-end usage all day long.
If you're a fan of Blackberry, definitely check out the Storm2. It has great features to add along with apps to customize it how you want it. :)
I purchased my DROiD X [Bad ESN] here on eBay in February to convert for use on the MetroPCS network and to take advantage of the incredible prices on these phones for a fraction of the Verizon price.
I had it fully Flashed over to MetroPCS-[for a small $50 fee] with Full Data, Web, SMS, MMS, Android Apps etc- Everything works perfectly and the Unlimited Everything plan is only $50.00 per month!
*You will have to get this done by an independent Metro Flash Tech/Independent MetroPCS dealer [there are a few reputable ones here on eBAY] as the Metro in-house flash service for $10.00 is unable to get the DROiD X fully functioning.
I also found you must use it with the $50.00 SmartPhone plan or the DROiD X wont be fully functional.
It seems that with the $40 and lower priced plans even though they say internet is covered, you wont be able to access any of the DATA services or connections. You'll get just a simple dial up basic web service.
So go with the $50.00 plan, its a 1X DATA or 2G connection which isn't too bad, Ive been using it quite often while Im out & about and it loads a web page or completes a Google search in a matter of seconds (about 5-7sec)
The GPS is fantastic and works great on the MetroPCS network as does Google Voice Search, Barcode Scanner/lookup and sending good sized MMS messages!
So while its a small sacrifice of not having a super fast 3G-broadband connection, I find this is outweighed by having reliable service and an affordable monthly phone bill that never goes up and never changes.
I couldn't be happier having the coolest Android phone on the planet at such a great price.
Motorola did a terrific job delivering a high quality product that capitalizes on the rich 'droid capabilities. Motorola traded away a physical keyboard in order to provide a large display and keep the weight down. The relatively comparable HTC version with it's physical keyboard weighs a lot more. The large Droid X display makes it easy to type on and hit the right icons the first time, so you won't miss the physical keyboard. While the Droid X is not as sleek as the Apple iPhone, the Verizon network is much more robust than the AT&T network, so the 'droid is "in network" more often than an iPhone; important if you're moving data or use the phone a lot. My only complaint is the large number of apps that I neither want, nor use, and you cannot easily uninstall. Many of them self-load which means they eat up memory space. Suggest the very first thing you do is install the Task Killer app; even then it's a constant battle to keep crap like CityID from load and eating away at the available memory. Battery life is also relatively short (about 8 hours with minimal phone use) so buy a car charger or an extra power cord for the office.
I am a (former) Iphone user, but my company recently gave us company BlackBerry Curve's. I bought this Storm 2 to replace the company phone, and and am impressed. It's amazing how you forget what a grown up phone can do. The storm has lightning fast app launching, easily switches between apps, great camera and video camera, built in ability to operate all Office documents, and the ability to theme your phone. (without hacking or "jailbreaking") The clicking touch screen takes a little while to get used to, but it offers a wider selection option, such as hovering without selecting. It merges email, sms, facebook, twitter, etc, by contact and on a desktop function that is easy to navigate, and you can see everything for the contact in a timeline. The swift handling of email (especially MS exchange) is unmatched in any other phone, The design of the operating software is extremely intuitive, making composing, editing, attaching files to, and sending messages much easier and faster than other touch screen phones. There are also built in magnet sensors that recognize when you put the phone in it's holster, and adjust the sound and vibrate notification settings appropriately, while also putting the phone to sleep. It will also recognize when it's snapped into a navigation holder in a car, and automatically launch the nav software.
The web browser on this phone is annoying and small, and apps like pandora and iheartradio do not stream well. The phone will never compete with the iphone in interface or range of applications, but I don't need that. I have a laptop with a wireless card and several computers at home and work. I can surf on those. The phone far surpasses the iphone in functionality when it comes to running multiple processes, intuitiveness, instant notification of email (not push every 5 min) and so on. If you need a great touch screen phone and you use your phone for business, this is the one, hands down. If you need your phone to surf the web and listen to the radio, it is not.
As a side note, the phone will easily tether to a computer and operate as a modem, including thru Bluetooth.
