    Thought I'd give out some feedback on my experience so far using the Droid X. I had the Droid Incredible since launch date. Only reason I upgraded to the Droid X, was because my girlfriend had an upgrade coming, so I stole it, and gave her my incredible. She get's an awesome phone and I get the latest and greatest, win win.

    Been playing with the Droid X since yesterday. In my opinion, it's exactly like the Droid Incredible with some minor additions added by Motorola and some minor HTC features removed. So far, all these features are useless to me. I never used the HTC features, becuase of LauncherPro, and won't use the Motorola features, because of LauncherPro. LauncherPro is a must in my opinion. Awesome and best replacement of any Android UI. It runs super smooth on the Droid X, as it did on the Incredible. Only drawback I see is the icons are super spaced-out from another, because of the bigger screen. I don't know if this can be fixed, but would be nice if I could add additional rows of icons.

    The battery is a huge plus so far. it came out of the box with 70%, charged to full in 20 minutes, and after playing with it like crazy all day and night, and not charging it over night, now it's at about 30%.

    I am still getting used to the size of the phone. I had a leather holster for my incredible, but refuse to get one for the X because of the potential fanny pack comments.

    Overall, this phone is performance-wise, exactly like the Droid Incredible, with an exceptional battery, and a monster of a screen. I highly recommend this phone, if you can deal with the size.

    I couldn't agree more. Coming from an Inc., gave to my wife, love the large screen but have to get used to the size. My daughters, who both have Eris's, joke that I got the new "DroidPad".

    Exactly! I have the DINC and my wife had a NE2 date that just so happened to be on the 15th. Thought I would just take the DX, but I guess I talked it up too much and now I think she's going to keep it.

    I'm still trying to sell her on the fact that it's probably too big for her liking though....

    I really don't care that much. I love my DINC, and I have root access so I'm fine staying with it. My only DINC complaint is the battery life. Plus, I'm sure I'll have plenty of time with the DX, as I don't expect my wife to actually care enough to figure everything out herself, so I will be the one doing all of the customizing for her.

    if you would go into the prefrences and then click advanced settings and there is an option to add 5 rows of items.

    On my Inc I just changed the update intervals (like when it updates Facebook and Twitter, etc.) and my battery life went up tenfold. I can unplug at 8AM, talk and do my normal stuff on it, and it is still 50% at 9PM, and my house is a black hole for signal. I am always between 0 and 1 bar.

    My battery life on the X isnt too good, I'm down to 20% and hasnt even been a full 5 hours yet. Of course I'm constantly using it, how can you not. Maybe I should start a thread sorry.

    Found this setting, thanks. It says something about not working well in landscape. If it starts to struggle in landscape, I'll just disable landscape. No biggie.

    Are you talking about LP or the DX Blur launcher?

    Thanks for the review. It's funny when people who don't know what they are talking about tell everyone that the 'X' is a much faster and more powerful processor.

    LP Launcher. I installed LP Launcher immediately. I thought the default launcher that came with the X was fugly and I already had some insight in the Lp Launcher.

    No problem. I am realist, and I always try to have a neutral opinion. I heart any android phone, and I think android is going to take over.

    The launchers all look alike to me except for the bar at the bottom. Everything else can be changed to look the way you like on them all.

    Now they do have different features some better than other. I like the app tray ADW uses that you can hide or unhide and the 3d app drawer on LP is cool and both stop the the lag you get when opening the app drawer with the default blur launcher.
