The big bump up in processor speed is nice, as is the cutting edge screen resolution, but once you get past the small improvements in the specs, you realize that the Motorola Droid X2 is a rather unimaginative and routine update to the original Droid X. That doesn’t make it a bad phone by any means, but it does make it hard to get excited about.
The Droid X2 is a faster version of a phone that launched a year ago, with the same features, same design, even the same operating system. If you liked the original Droid X and were about to buy one, the X2 has all that and a bit more. If not, you might find other, slightly more cutting-edge models to provide you more bang for your buck.
- Blazing fast processor
- High-resolution screen
- Few advantages over Droid X
- No 4G LTE support
A useful refresh of the old Droid X, but with only mild improvements over the old model, it doesn’t stack up quite as well against the new cutting edge.
