    Anyone have an encounter with water yet?

    EDIT: I'm not saying they implied it is waterproof by any means.
    Just want to see how it handles an accidental encounter with water. I fish a lot and know I will have it with me on the water. It will be in a waterproof case of some kind, but you just neven know what might happen.

    Let's check if it's fire proof while we're at it....

    At least the X is to big to be flushed down the toilet if it falls in, and i don't think any other phone (maybe evo) could have that on their feature list.

    It's actually a good question! Look at the Incredible board, there are tons of threads on people washing it, dropping it in water, or leaving it outside in the rain. I kinda wonder if the X is that durable!!!

    Haunted Hallows....Thanks. Glad someone isn't a 'know-it-all'.

    Just wondering how it handles water. Sorry for asking.
    And no I'm not gonna put it in the pool to try to get some videos of naked chicks :)

    Just wondering if anyone had an encounter with water and what happened. Hard rain? Sweaty encounter with your girlfriend?

    Was pushed into a pool with my Storm and it came out fine. Just wondering how the X holds up. Sooner or later the first water encounter post is coming. Just trying to see if it's happened yet.

    Again sorry to offend the easily offended and the easy-to-jump-to-conclusion ;)

    I haven't experienced water yet, but i have notice the water damage indicator is well hidden and protected, i can't speak for the incredible, but.i had an eris and the water damage indicator was in plain sight once u removed the cover, so anything can cause the shot.to go bad, but i learned to bleach the white strip indicator and no one can tell the difference unless of course they do some investigating inside the hardware, but i think the x is extremely durable to water, cause it is very well guarded, with only a small window to look at.

    I got some water on mine the other day, enough that would have slowed my bb storm down for a bit. But this guy didn't slow down at all.

    I beg to differ.. My kid tossed my original Droid in the toilet and flushed it.. Thankfully it didn't fit either! :D:p;)

    Potential, "mood," killer for new Droid X users below. Nothing really major, but once you know about it, you'll probably always notice it.
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    Actually, I'm almost positive that the video really is of a Droid X. Underwater casing or not. If you look closely enough, every video recorded by a Droid X has a slightly reddish hue down the middle of the screen. On top of that, it really just looks like a video that would be recorded by a Droid X. - Quality-wise, anyway. The frame shakiness looks familiar, etc.

    That's my opinion anyway. I mean, it isn't that far-fetched. Even if the guy isn't using a waterproof casing, I wouldn't recommend keeping the thing underwater for too long. It hasn't been certified by the manufacturer, (Motorola, ofc) as a waterproof capable device.

    EDIT: "It hasn't been certified by the manufacturer, (Motorola, ofc) as a waterproof capable device." -- Unless I SERIOUSLY overlooked something. :p

    yah, it's def a X, i thought it was like in a bag or somthing tho..

    I would recognize that failure of whiteballance that the droidx just loves.

    Today I was removing honey from our beehive and managed to get a drop of water on the screen. I quickly wiped it dry and it still works :p

    Two strikes against that first product:
    1) $109!!?? The phone only cost me $49.00 :)
    2)"eco-friendly" packaging. Anyone that feels they have to mention anything eco gets no $$ from me.
