    Damn, its huge!

    Motorola Droid X - Engadget Galleries

    So has anyone noticed how the cellphone markets go from big to small to big to small to big to small. What is the happy medium? I know, the DRinc!

    In all seriousness I enjoy my incredible, but am so excited for my 2 year contract to be up to get the next best thing.

    Like we said with the Evo...bigger isn't always better.

    Still not as big overall as my first cell phone from Bell Atlantic Nynex Mobile...

    But I'll stick with my INC.

    First thing I thought when I saw the phone in that guys hand is it looks unnecessarily big.

    And the back is ugly. I wasn't crazy about the Incredibles back case at first but that thing (not sitting flush to a surface) would really piss me off.

    Overall not at all impressed. I wouldn't buy it.

    Yeah i think the bigger wouldnt be for most people as now you are getting close to being unable to carry in a pocket as big as they are getting. Maybe make a phone with 4 inch screen rather than 4.3

    If you read the engadget review they say that its very slim and fits into jean pockets. Its pretty damn sexy if you ask me. But the one thing the original Droid taught us is that aesthetics are very easily overlooked if the phone "performs".

    that thing is huge man. I held an EVO in my hand a few days ago and thought it was way too big. This thing is bigger than the EVO. LOL. It's like a brick. LOL. No doubt some people do like these huge cell phones, but at least for me it's just too over done when they get this big. I'm on the go all the time and my phone is an extension of me while I'm on the go so I like them slim and compact and it's better that way cause with all the stuff i have to do and carry around it's a pain having yet another thing to worry about taking up space in my pocket and worrying bout breaking it, hence why i went with the Inc. instead of any of these. It would make a cool toy though. Something to show off and play with if i could and had a different job and didn't have to worry bout all the above. :)

    Depends on your POV...if you view smartphones as just a phone, then yes it's big. However if you view it as a mini-Tablet (Tiblet??) that also makes phone calls, then it's a good size.
    Unlike the iPhone, you have a choice of sizes for Android devices that suits you :)

    I really dont think it is that big, it really isn't too much bigger than blackberries use to be or the Motorola Q9, I thought the EVO was fine, and I think this one is fine. I don't wear super tight jeans so I cant judge for that, but my brother-in-laws EVO fits it my pockets.(My jeans were from American Eagle I think)

    Used to be? The X is .5" taller than my storm 2. And I have 0 issues pocketing my S2 all day.

    I'm one of the nerds that wanted to know for sure so I made a cardboard mock up. It fits in the pocket of my jeans, work pants, shorts, etc with no issue. This isn't a bag phone and it isn't as big as people are alluding it to be. Don't believe me? Cut out cardboard 5.01" x 2.5" and try it for yourself. If you aren't wearing skinny jeans I don't think it is an issue.

    Also, why do people always insist on making threads about not liking something in a subforum related to that object? Do people really like just stirring the beehive or what? Can't we all just get along? :D

    Thanks you proved what I was saying, people make this phone out to be like a huge monster when it reality the only monster is the size of the screen. :)


    I think it has something to do with people trying to justify their purchase of their phone they have and want to down play a newer phone. I am not saying all people do that but I think some do. I think most of the android phones out are great, and cater to specific user's needs.

    this phone is very pocketable im sure. if you carry phones in your pocket. mine will go in a holster/case just like my incredible (im speaking a clam shell case into existence).
    all will be well and i`ll be what i dreamed of when i was watching back to the future three :)

    That's what she said! :D




    That's a chick's hand. It is a big phone though. Honestly, if the Dell Streak wasn't on At&t that'd be my next phone. I wear cargo pants all the time, so almost anything will fit in my pockets.

    there are videos on engadget of the Dell Streak fitting comfortably in they guy's pocket with a 5" screen, so I am sure that the 4.4" will fit just perfectly. Also remember, not everyone is a tiny man or woman. For us tall people, bigger is much more comfy

    4.3"

    And it's not the screen size that determines pocketability. It is the overall phone size. My Storm only has a 3.25" screen, but it is just as wide as the X and only 1/2" shorter.

    Well that is just way too big to be practical. I'm not down with carrying a euro bag around to hold my "equipment".

    Big to small to big is right. I was cleaning out some boxes the other day and found an old nokia phone I had. Man was that thing tiny!
