I Chose to purchase the Droid X because in my opinion its the best out there... at least it was until the 4G phone were released but even still I LOVE my DX and wouldnt want any other phone... up until recently I enjoyed everything the Stock OS had to offer, I knew that i had a heavy duty piece of technology but wasnt fully aware what it was capable of. Now that I have joined this forum and learned SO much about pushing new software and what ROMS are.. Moding with themes and basically, that the possibilities are endless I couldnt be happier owning a Droid X :big smile:

I wanted a gps, digital book reader, and a full keyboard. The Droid X had everything I wanted at the time. It wasn't long after getting this awesome phone, I started to realized what a gem I had. Tons of research, the awesome support of this group, and fantastic developers have made me even more thrilled with the decision.

Well first it was going to be a Droid Incredible. My birthday was coming up and I was hoping I'd get a nice phone, and it seemed to be the best one Verizon had in their lineup. However, there were whispers that Motorola was bringing Verizon one of those gigantic phones, and after having seen a friend's Evo, it sounded like a good idea to me. So they came out with the Droid X, I read over the reviews and specs and found it to be quite comparable to the Incredible, save for the screen size. So on my birthday, I got a case and a few screen protectors and a receipt for a Droid X that'd been put on order, due to high demand. It came in the mail, got activated, and now it runs MIUI. Good story!

In 2008, I bought my first smartphone, a used Treo 700p. Needless to say, it was the focal point of lots of abuse so I really needed an upgrade. In July 2009, I used my New Every Two Upgrade to get a Blackberry Storm. That phone was a real POS. I suffered for a year and then got an annual upgrade for the DX.

I knew I wanted to get an Android phone and at the time there were only three "real" options on VZW: the OG droid, the Incredible and the DX. For me, the deciding factors were screen size and battery life. I really didn't understand the impact of the encrypted and locked bootloader at the time or I might have went Incredible. Having said that, the DX has aged pretty well and it does everything I want it to. However, unfortunately, because of Motorola's anti development stance (talk means nothing, actions say everything) I won't be going Moto next time. Until then, the DX is mine. I love it and hate it at the same time.

I had purchased the OG did when it first came out and immediately fell in love with the android OS, and it's only gotten better. I've also had 2 incredibles, 2 fascinates, and 2 droid x's. I switch phones often, but after having my first x and then going to my second fascinate, I knew what I had been missing. The phone is awesome, period. I live how new stuff heros coming out, yet I've not used an upgrade or switched phones in over 3 months (that's huge for me)! I think the thing I like most any my x is that there are soooo many awesome devs putting out amazing stuff for us!

Apex, liberty, cm7, miui, ssx, liquid, darkslide, zombiestomped, hateraid, broodcomb, and stock have all ballad this phone home at some point, and still running amazingly!

thanks to all the great devs and third community got making this phone that much better !!!

I got mine from research.... I looked at a few phones and decided this one its the one I wanted.... Loved the stats... And before this I had only had a basic lg phones.... But I had a decent general knowledge if computers and loved what this phone had to offer plus a sixteen gig sd card installed already.... Took me a few months to get to where I could get it along with the unlimited plan because I was moving around the state... But got this amazing computer and a customer I was helping rooted my phone a month or two later... And I stumbled into this knowledge :)

Well this is sort of embarrassing, but when my upgrade was due last august, I really wanted an I phone but verizon didn't have it yet so I went with the droid x due to the no keyboard and it was the most similar to the I phone. I had no idea about roms, themes, etc. I'm so glad I went with the x because the customization is unbelievable. I laugh at I phones now. My sister got it and I ridicule her for it all the time. The droid x has been the greatest phone I've ever had!

I had an iphone and was having a miserable experience with it. When I finally reached my limit I went to a verizon store and after looking at pretty much all the droid phones I chose the Droid X for its camera, screen size and for the idea in mind I would be able to root it and make it my own. For me ultimately it was and is the fact that I could; and have customized it to my standards. I didnt want a fresh baked cookie cut by someone else. I love this phone.

I picked the Droid X because it had the biggest screen and HDMI capabilities at the time... TMNT Turtles in Time for the snes on the flat screen? Droid X does... well at least a month later when gman came up with Real HDMI!

with all the development and support on this forum, I still think it's the best non-4g phone on verizon... even compared to my DX2....

I knew I wanted to switch over to andoid and when I got a chance to play around with a friends incredible I was impressed.... It ultimately boiled down to all of the capabilities of the DX that made my decision easy.... The screen is awesome... The hdmi is a huge bonus.... The plethora of support and custom software.... It's still one of the most amazing pieces of hardware available in my opinion and I'd be hard pressed to give it up for anything else.

Well I definitely cannot pick one reason why I choose the DX but I can give you the guidelines on how I came to my decision! Well I definitely knew I wanted an original moto Droid product and not a device with an android operating system so that narrowed my field for me. I then wanted a touch screen but like the slide out keyboard on the D2 was a cool option. Processing power and internal storage was a definite must for me and at the time one of those two were the odvious choice. After browsing around the DX came with a 16gb card so that was a big plus but I really liked the slide out keyboard on the D2 and was really appealing but what sealed the deal for me and why I choose the DX was the HD capability with the 8.0 megapixal camera and that did it for me! So never the less I choose the DX and never looked back!!! Now that I have I have found a great helpful and entertaining community revolving around it it just made things that much better!Sent from my DX running CM7

I was sold on the D1 when one of my clients came in with it. Then the DX came out and it was all over. I never had a smart phone without a keyboard before but the camera, screen size, and how thin the phone was sold me on the DX. Once I convinced big red to move up my upgrade date I called every Costco in the area until I just happened to find one at my local Wal-Mart. But it was after the cell phone department closed! So I had to get there at 7:30 the next morning when they opened and it's been a great romance story every since.

I got my x because I liked the look of blur, the screen size and being about the best phone at the time (still is in the top 5 if you ask me) Now I've kept with liking the screen size but the blur has been replaced with miui.

08-03-2011, 02:08 AM
My decision was based on a lot of things:

-No Keyboard, because I hate QWERTY keyboards... I'm so much better with T9!

-HD Video plus 8MP Camera with me at all times? Yes please, I love sharing my life with my friends, and it's much better with visuals rather than just status updates

-It was $200, and so was the Incredible (my original pick, until I saw this beauty). Clearly, this was superior!

-Love the massive screen... I just wish it was BIGGER! I've got pretty big pockets, so size isn't an issue, and I love having lots of screen space!

-Thin and lightweight. Despite the fact that I want a huge screen, I don't also want a huge phone, and this fit perfectly!

-Physical buttons. Yes, real life clicky beautiful little buttons at the bottom of my phone! Not that crappy touch-sensitive button stuff


Basically... it just seemed like the obvious best choice! (At least at the time anyway... maybe there are better options now, not sure)

I have the X2, but I'm guessing that won't be a problem for me to enter. :-)

I had the OG Droid which I loved but I was getting tired of not having all the apps I wanted due to storage constraints and resorting to using compcache just to get it to run smoothly.

My renewal date fast approaching I started to check out what was going to hit the market soon. I was really interested in the bionic mainly because of dual core cpu, but the push backs on release didn't make it an option for me, I hate waiting.

The thunderbolt looked neat but I'm not a fan of htcs plastic designs and the battery life horror stories turned me off. Plus I live in the boonies so 4g is worthless to me probably for years to come.

I had wanted an X since it came out, in fact I had some buyers remorse with my faithful og droid after the x was released, so even though it had some age on it I was leaning twoards getting it.

One morning I woke up and said, today I'm picking a new phone out. I opened up verizons web page and out of no where I see this phone that looks just like the x but its dual core, a dream come true. I had not heard a scrap of news about this phone, it was seemingly a dark horse. I knew I wanted a dual core phone and this was the light at the end of a tunnel. Tegra2 1ghz, 4.3in screen and most importantly, covered in gorilla glass, twice the ram as my og droid and 10 times the app storage. It was like motorola knew exactly what I was looking for in a phone, it was even 3g only so I knew the battery life would be superb.

I've always liked motorola and I can say that 2 months later, I still do.

Well..I originally went to the VZ store to get a new battery for my LG Env2, and well it was christmas time and my dad actually surprised me by offering to get me a new phone and luckily I had an upgrade available too. Almost ended up getting Whatever Samsungs comparable phone at the time was, but the rep helping us suggested that we get the X instead..thank god for that sales rep :D . What really turned me on too it was the HDMI connections and the screen was alot nicer then the Samsungs( I dislike the SAMOLED screens).

My reason for choosing the Droid X was based on the HTC HD2. I never owned one but I came across it at Walmart one night and was instantly pulled in by the 4.3 inch display. Never saw a mobile device with that large of a display and it was awesome to me. It wasnt powered on so all i did was marvel at the size. I could never get it though. Later down the line I was up on my att contract and decided to go to Verizon. There I saw the droid x. This device was powered on so I grabbed it up and knew as soon as I held it that it was for me. The beautiful display, the awesomeness of typing on the massive keyboard compared to my iPhone, the specs of the beast of a device. And then came the fact that android powered this device. I hadn't heard much about android but I was ready to take the plunge. What a great decision it was. The Droid x has made me a very happy person since the day I signed into my Google account on it.

I chose the droid x for a bunch of reasons. First let me say this is my first true smart phone. Used to be on att with my almost smart phone the Samsung impression. That phone was good at the time it opened a door for wanting more out of my phone. Didn't have full html browsing which got old fast. When it finally broke out of no where 2 months before upgrade i called att to see what i could do. They just came out with the tiered plans and i didn't want to be locked into that. I paid the 123 dollar cancellation fee just to get the droid x after being with att for 4 years Plus.

I sacrificed allot to get my droid x but in the end was totally worth it. What got me to chose the dx was hardware. Amazing my first computer was slower than this phone. Hdmi out, Large display, full html browsing, and allot more. Droid x also brought me to the world if rooting which made me see the full potential of these phones.

So happy with my droid x

I upgraded to the Droid X from the Droid 1 mainly for 1 reason. the HUGE screen. I got tired of squinting to see games and zooming in 15 times in order to read a webpage. Plus the screen on my dads Iphone was slightly larger and easier to read...and since I had no intention of getting an Iphone I did the next best thing. Got a phone with a screen that dwarfed his Iphone 3GS's. My dad, mom, sister, step mom, and many others at first gave me crap about getting a phone with such a big screen until I let them play around with it for a little bit and then they all wanted one. Sadly my dad and step mom are stuck with their iphones for awhile. But my sister has upgraded now to the slightly larger Samsung (4.5").

All the other bells and whistles were found out after id had it for a few months ex, Modding, overclocking etc. It's hands down been the nest phone I've had ever by far. This dx2 is caught it though with my 2.3.3 update I received yesterday.

There are a lot of reasons why I chose my Motorola Droid X. Here are primary reasons:

Footprint - it's thin, lightweight, no keyboard and fits my hand perfectly
Screen size and technology - it's much easier on my eyes than my original Droid 1
Camera - 8MP and HD video with HDMI output
sGPS and aGPS with Google Nav - it's my primary navigation device
Android and Motorola - Android rules, it's not an iPhone and I've had nothing but good experiences with Motorola products
Verizon - they got it to me day 1 for dirt cheap
Aesthetics - IMHO, it's the best looking TactiCoolMallNinja device on the planet :cool:

I bought 2 of them because of the quality and the opportunities it had to offer from personalization to games to productivity. Also the screen size was amazing it offered better typing for fingers imo. The camera is amazing for pictures and video it had everyone else beat! To this day I still enjoy the device! But my problem is I love technology so much I always look for the best. I love innovation that is why I went with android and the DROID X!

i chose my x because i love the android os, but more i love droid!..droid does...i came from the d1, and i loved it so much that i couldn't imagine using anything else but the hd video and hdmi out is what eventually sold me on the fact that it really was time to upgrade from my beloved og droid to the x...as much as i loved my d1 i havnt regretted upgrading...wouldn't have ever thought it would b possible but i think i love my x more...(but don't let my og find out...lol)

the screen and durability. I love this phone to death and recently left it on the roof of the car. its still kicking with only minor scratches. I still can't think of a single phone I want more than the droid x

edit:
oh yeah and because it was similar to the iphone in size and such. that way i could remind iphone users how much their iphone sucks

Well, I don't really want the dock so hope I don't win but I still like my DX tons since having it over a year now. Bought it mid July last year.

Reasons for purchase: Screen size, high res screen, and one of the fastest performing phones.

Things I've learned and really love (I ordered it online!): Build quality, durability, and feel is still the most high quality feeling phone I've used and felt. Most HTC's feel like child's toys. iPhones feel like holding a smaller ball and lack of sophisfication

I finally broke down and got the DX because my boss and a coworker had iphones and I realized I needed a smartphone for work, too. I got it for the maps and radar initially. I had heard all the complaing they both did about all the dropped calls and the tiny keyboard and screen. So I knew I didn't want one of them. I loved the idea of open source, as well. Never have liked being told what I should like by someone who has never met me. I knew Verizon had the best coverage, and not knowing where I might be working from one day to the next, I decided to go there. I saw this phone and that was it. Huge screen (boss said it gave him screen envy the first time he saw it!), good camera for taking pics of my work without having to carry a whole other device, camcorder, etc. Really, what wasn't to like? And all that before I learned anything about this community or rooting. Really, was there even a question about what to get at the time? Lol.

I chose the Droid X last fall also because of the screen size. It is great for those of us that need just a little extra help in reading and looking at pics. Got to say, that I have never been sorry for choosing it!

I'm loving everything about this phone, but mostly the GPS. I work for a university and when we travel, the GPS capabilities have saved us more than a few times. Not to mention easily finding food and a place for a few drinks. I love it!

I chose the X because it was simply the best Android phone in the market. The screen, speed, and flexibility was unrivaled in the devices I looked at.

I chose the x2 because it's dual core, has hard buttons (my parents both have the droid 2 and those buttons suck) and a big screen.

That was pretty much it...

I chose the DX because it beat the other Droid series when it comes to recording a video in HD with its three noise canceling mic, it was the best after the iphone video recording.

The 4.3 screen size for web browsing and space for the keyboard.

The DX was offering the same thing the iphone had but faster; tether, apps, wifi capable, etc.

It only does everything.

I choose the Droid X because it is the best of the best!

The main reason I choose this phone was because of it popularity and I knew that since this is such a popular phone I would be able to really modify it to my liking with information I get from this forum! Not only that I love the large display for watching Netflix at the gym while wasting time on the bike or other machine. Add all the hardware features like the display, camera, and processor and it really is a no brainer that this is the phone to have.

The best thing about this phone is I can use it to show other i****e (censored the curse word) users how much better Android technology is.

Combination of screen size, no physical keyboard, and it's a Motorola product.

I got the DroidX 6 months after it had already been released. Even after being out for 6 months, I read nothing but good reviews on the phone. On the other side, after being out for only 6 months, the development community had already provided a slew of customizations for me to (nearly) fully personalize my DroidX. With both of those major factors, there were no other phones that compared to the DroidX, at the time.

I chose the DX because of the large screen, gps, fast processor the multitude of apps and so many different roms. But the #1 reason is I like all the women saying " Oh it's so Big ". I'm 5'6" and I am not use to them telling me that.:big smile:

I got my x a couple of weeks after it was released. I chose it because it was the best phone at the time. And there still isn't a phone out that I would give up my x for. Maybe the Bionic. Big emphasis on MAYBE. Things are just too good in 2nd initville.

When I got my DX I was looking at the EVO. I had been a HTC guy for a while. I was sold on the DX because at one time I would buy nothing but MOTO products. I'm still happy with this phone and Big Red(believe it or not!). That is the reason I chose the Droid X I was trying to get away from ATT, and the Droid X was the best phone Verizon had.

I chose the X because I was coming from an iBore and really wanted something that could do everything that wasn't possible with Apple. I also wanted to silence some friends with the iPhone by showing them how I could customize virtually everything on the phone, take panorama photos and have them instantly stitched, connect to my xbox wirelessly with the dlna feature, hook up an hdmi cable to my tv and view my photos, videos, etc.....

I chose the DroidX because of some of my friends. I had a chance to really check one out before I bought it. I wanted it first time I saw it, and getting my hands on one outside of a store sealed the deal. A fairly large and crisp display, an 8 megapixel camera that takes great pictures, great video with hdmi, 802 wireless, just to mention a few. Couple that with great support on the forums and the ability to customize it pretty much however you want you really can't ask for more. I really have to say mine is fast, stable, and just works great! I came from a win6.X smartphone, made the jump to Android, and haven't looked back once. No regrets what so ever.

I initiially chose the Droid X because of the screen size. I have rather big hands so this size was perfect for me.
I've come to love it because I love being able to tinker with it, and with the linux SBF, I'm never afraid of going too far in messing around with it!

I wanted a Droid X for several reasons but if I were to pick my top reasons it would be....the size of the screen, the awesome clarity and HD features. I love how light weight it is and didn't feel like I was carrying a brick around. Mostly I wanted my Droid because its the best smart phone out there!

My old POS Samsung Omnia was on it's last legs and crashing/locking up on me almost daily. I finally got fed up with the run around from the local Verizon Wireless stores and called their online tech support. They decided there was nothing to do and upgraded my account to say I was eligible for an early upgrade at the new-every-two price, and that just happened to be a few days before the Droid X was released. So I waited for release day, waited in line at the store, and luckily got the last one they had.

I love the large screen, that's probably the feature I most coveted when I was reading all the posts on this site and the Droid forums prior to release. I've never had a problem with the phone itself, despite the many hacks I've done to it since I got it, including rooting it as soon as a stable process for root was released. I have the car dock, but not the media dock, so winning this contest would be sweet! :) Thanks for holding the contest!

My reason for choosing the Droid X was because of the screen size and the raw power! I still thoroughly enjoy my Droid X, but unfortunately my camera just stopped working. I can't launch the app or even use the LED flash as a flashlight with TeslaLED... So I took my phone to the closest Verizon Wireless store and will be receiving my Droid X2 tomorrow! As a lot of you already know, their warranty replacements are depleted for the Droid X, so you get an upgrade/replacement.

So tomorrow, I'll be enjoying my Droid X2.

Thanks for the chance at a giveaway, DroidXForums peeps!
