    Sorry if I'm making unnecessary threads, but I've been seeing lots of people complaining/sending back their Droid. I was just wondering if anyone still has the Droid X they bought at launch and if it's doing fine?

    The only minor gripe I had with my phone is that there are 2 specks of dust under the screen, which I can't really see now because of the screen protector. Otherwise it's working fine.

    Maybe I was just lucky?

    Got mine on launch day and I still have it.
    No issues what so ever..Issues I do have are software, not hardware.

    Loving it. Only thing I don't always like is the bump for camera, but the bump helps amplify sound when on hard surface. :D

    Received mine on launch, after 4 days of usage, noticed several dead pixels, placed order for replacement and after two weeks of usage, have had no issues whatsoever.

    My first Android experience has been a great one...so much so that I'm trying to figure out how I put up with my BB for so long :p

    Same, and my software issue should be corrected with the next update if what I'm reading from Moto is correct. I really like this phone.:D

    best device i've had! only a couple software issues that will probably be cured by the froyo update...that's why i''m not really doing to much to my phone right now, read root, don't feel like redoing everything after froyo

    oh yeah, got it launch day!

    Love it. Only issue with mine is the quiet speaker, and that's just an issue with the phone, not mine in particular.

    I love mine more every day. I was just thinking about it this morning, there probably won't be a better phone out for a long time, and if something were to happen to my X down the road in a couple of months I'd end up buying another X.

    I had a small issue where the shutter on my camera seemingly was stuck. I was about to look into a replacement and suddenly it worked again. I have yet to have another single issue with it...and I've tested tons of pics!

    Launch Day Droid has been good to me and honestly I cannot imagine me having a different phone...I am in love with this thing :D

    Got my X on launch day and the only problem i've run into is that the X just gets better and better every day.

    I'm now spoiled, off all other phones, and can't figure out why there are any other phones on the market right now... ;-p

    Mine is doing fine. It lags a little bit though. That started happening when I installed Launcher Pro Plus.

    Even more happy now than I was on launch day.

    I got a little worried about my battery yesterday and this morning but then I read about the stupid FB update being the cause, had to quickly uninstall it. Now the battery appears to be just fine.

    I ordered mine on launch day, got it a while later and have loved it. This is my second android phone (Used to own a G1 before I went to a BB) and far far better. As long as you keep and eye on the apps you download the battery life has been good too (had the FB issue of draining the battery, had to delete FB for now)
    All in all, as someone else had said before me, If this phone (god forbid) were to break, I'd be buying a new one without a doubt. wouldnt even consider any other phones on the market right now.
    Just my .02

    Overall I'm pretty happy with it. I wish it had the GPU that the Samsung GalaxyS phones have, but other than that I think they did an awesome job with the hardware for this phone. I have had zero problems with the hardware. There have been a few software glitches, it rebooted on me once, and an issue with the gallery forced me to do a factory reset after I had the phone for about two days, but other than that it's been problem free. The one MAJOR gripe I have is the damn locked bootloader. I think it's an awesome phone, but it's the last Moto phone I will buy until they quit locking down the damn bootloader this hard. If I wanted the manufacturer of the phone to dictate how I'm allowed to use it, I'd get an iTurd.
