    Ah, it seemed so great in the store. Then I took one home. After a while, it's beginning to feel too big! Feels heavy on my belt, big in my hand, my hand bumps into it while walking, and it feels like I have a large deck of cards to my ear when talking.

    Did you feel this way and get over it? Or did it feel right to you from the beginning?

    I talked to someone who had the EVO (same size as X, I understand) and he took it back 'cause it was just too darned big!

    How 'bout you? Does size "matter" in this case?

    I think it's the perfect size. It's thin and weighs less than a lot of other phone. My cousin has the original Droid and couldn't get over how much lighter mine was despite the size difference. Landscape mode is GREAT for texting and the browser looks beautiful this way as well. Honestly, after having it for 16 days....I think anything smaller would feel akward to me at this point and very cramped. But it isn't for everyone...

    Same here my brother came over today to show me his Iphone4 and to check out the X. He loves the size and i aint gonna lie the Iphone screen is pretty and the OS is smooth but... The screen is so tiny compared to my X. Opened a web page could see only half the page my X displays. Iphone screen feels cramp and small. Could not go back to such a small screen. Even my old phone HTC Imagio seems small and it has a 3.6 incher.

    I agree. I came to the DX from the TP2 and I love the DX's form. A great big screen that makes everything look great without the added weight that TP2's hardware keyboard added. Now whenever I pull out my TP2 I feel like it is small & clunky. But then again I have a petite female co-worker who has the HTC MyTouch. In her tiny hands my DX is like holding a tablet PC. She commented that it was too big for her taste.

    If I was using the DX as a phone primarily (I know sounds funny), then I think the size is a bit on the large size for me. However, I use it as a web browser, email program, text machine, skype, etc... and the size is great for a portable device.

    I love the size of the X not too big at all for me. I use the shell holster combo for mine and it feels perfect on my side.

    I too thought it was a bit big when I first got it but after 2 weeks I don't think I can give it up. I love the big screan when taking pics and video.

    It weighs less than my Droid and I love the screen real estate, so for me, no.

    Just clearing 1 thing up...

    The Droid X is a good bit larger than the Evo.

    I am coming from an iPhone 3G to the Droid X and it is definitely MUCH bigger but it is the perfect size for my monstrous hands. I have been using my Droid X for over a week now and I just picked up my iPhone 3G today to use in my car and return a call, and wow what a difference it was.

    It's barely any bigger than the Evo. I stacked them when I got mine on the 15th. lol Wouldn't notice a size diff unless comparing/looking at them closely like what I did. :p


    And regarding the OP; for me it was the perfect size from the start. Was different from what I was use to, but a good different.

    The EVO is slightly wider than the X.

    The X is slightly longer than the EVO.

    Maybe on paper, but have you held an X? It feels much smaller because it is so thin and the screen is a little narrower making it easier to grip. My wife agrees.

    Have you felt the weight of a Droid 1!?!? The x is a bunch lighter, after using a droid 1 , I love the screen, I rooted a friends droid and I thought man this screen is small, the size difference of the actual units is negligible at best.

    It's perfect for me. Any bigger would be too much. The vibrant seems to be a tiny bit too small... Maybe I'm just the right size for the X?

    It grows on you (no pun intended) haha. After a while, you won't really notice how big it is. You'll only notice if you hold say an incredible or in my case, messing around with your old storm 1. Such a strange feeling lol.
