    Ok, so I was one of the ones who preordered the droid x as soon as it was announced and got one that weekend. Well, I have had problems with the early model of the DX such as a couple reboots, battery life sucking (even with an extended battery), and couldn't overclock past 1.1 ghz. Well I finally called verizon and got a replacement phone (no i did not say that overclocking was one of the problems that I had). I have to say that the newer builds of the DX are way better.
    Right off the bat, I could tell that some of the hardware was different and the phone just felt different (more weighty is the only way to describe it). The stock system is much more responsive than on my previous phone. Also, I have been able to overclock my phone a lot higher than previous. We will see on the battery life today. I'm running Liberty again, and so far so good. Just thought I'd throw this out there in case some people were having the frustrations that I was having from the early adopter DX's.

    Can you be more specific about the overclocking?

    Sure. On my old device, the most I could overclock to was 1.1 or 1.15, if I tried any higher, my device would just lock up and become unresponsive. On this new device, i can go up to 1.3-1.4 no problem, no lockups. I'm currently running on low voltage at 1.2 for 3 hours now still at 90% battery using Liberty rom, setcpu, extended battery. I'm using jRummy's overclock app to do so. Also, I have been emailing probably 10 times an hour and played a couple games of can-knockdown this morning.

    BTW, love the new pic haha.

    Unless you actually have weights, I'm going to call this one a psychosomatic effect because the phone is running better and you want it to feel different.

    There's virtually no chance that Motorola modified the tooling or internals of the phone in any substantial way that would actually change the perceptible weight of the phone.

    What you got was a replacement phone that performs the way it should and happens to have a fairly high tolerance for overclocking. That's great, but it wasn't because Motorola overhauled their entire production line to the extent that the phone weight or feel was changed.

    Glad it's running well, though!

    I'll take a pic when I get home comparing the 2. Maybe i'm just thinking some of it is different when not, but immediately off the bat, I noticed that the pull tab for the battery was red instead of the gold or black that it was before (but now I think i remember them changing that because people were ripping it out).

    Yeah, they definitely changed the battery pull tab because people got a little over-excited and would tear them out.

    Hahaha, I was one of those people. BUt then notice how hard it was to take the battery out and I put it back on (after finding out what it was intended to do :p ).

    I might just try what the OP did and get a replacement phone. I can also only OC to 1.15 and cant get pass that no matter what.

    Ron when did you get your original phone? When did the DX first ship?
