Motorola Droid X vs Droid 2: Specs compared

By Peter Chubb - Jul 21, 2010

Who would have thought a few years ago that Motorola would be doing what they do best, building and selling great phones. They were once respected in this field, but a number of bad cell phones canceled all that hard work. However, since the launch of the Droid running the Android mobile OS the company has turned things around; so came as no surprise that they would launch more based on that platform – Droid X vs Droid 2.

The cell phone company must be confident with its new range to launch two more models. We know that the original Droid was the best selling Android handset to date – will they be able to repeat that success?

The Droid X was launched last week and comes with a large 4.3’ widescreen display – the widest in the smartphone market. The 8-megapixel camera offers image quality much the same as the HTC EVO 4G – although you will have a job getting your hands on one at the moment.

The Droid X also has a 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM, but is it enough to persuade owners to buy this new handset or should they wait for the Droid 2? We recently reported that there are a few hidden features on the Verizon website.

As for the Droid 2, there will be a number of changes to hardware, but the main difference will be the fact that it will come with a physical keyboard. This is said to be the true successor to the original Droid – now that is a huge responsibility in its self.

The Droid 2 looks set to have a 3.7-inch display, 8GB of internal storage, 5-megapixel camera and many more. Read our recent post for more spec and release details.

    which is better, droid x or droid 2??? btw, your momma wears combat boots…

      @ ralph malph. It’s really a personal preference thing with that I guess. Some would prefer a physical keyboard while others would like a huge screen with a big virtual keyboard. I have the Droid and the DX and would much rather type on the DX, only because Droid’s keyboard sucked. Supposedly it’s better with Droid 2. We’ll see. Typed on a Droid X. By the way, your daddy wears high heels.

    I also have had both an iPhone and an Android and the Android totally blows the iPhone out of the water in every aspect. Go play with one and drop your fanboy attitude and you’ll want to switch. Unless you’re a tard.

    Popcorn popping – or is that the soundof new smartphones! Same old failed strategy of rolling out hundreds of models (Droid, Droid x, Droid 2, Incredible, Hero …). For now the strategy is working because Android has momentum but not so sure of this strategy long term. iPhone will stand out in the crowd.

    • The Droids all smash the iphone…get a Droid in your hands an use it. You will see that the features don’t even compare to the very simple plain iphone4. I’ve owned both and there is no comparison, iPhones are for noobs. This HTC incredible in my hands has 580 apps installed, runs 40 apps at a time, has push to talk, I could go on 4ever…iPhones stand out in a crowd 4 being pieces of trash that don’t work.
