The Motorola Droid X2 is one of the fastest phones on the market today and improves on the original Droid in just about every way possible. The Droid X2 features a dual-core 1GHz processor compared to the single core in the original Droid. Android 2.2 is the operating system of choice and it runs very quickly thanks to 512 MB of RAM. It also features an upgraded qHD display and includes many other new software customizations and other enhancements to the user interface.

The look of the Droid X2 is extremely similar to the original Droid. Someone who does not know the phones too well could get one confused for the other. One thing that is noticeably missing on the Droid X2 is the camera button, which could disappoint some users. The four bottom buttons make a return as well, and are still no better than they were before. If you touch them just a bit off-center they will not register your button press, making for a frustrating experience.

Motorola's BLUR user interface makes a return as well and it is very much like the original Droid. There are some minor improvements though but the application icon still does not work properly and takes time to open. Even with the dual-core processor, the phone still stutters sometimes meaning that updates should be in order.

Battery life on the Droid X2 is incredibly good compared to other Android smartphones. The battery will easily last through a full day of moderate to heavy usage and can last up to a week in standby mode.

Sadly, the Droid X2 lacks 4G support and with a market full of 4G handsets that are both faster and easier to use than the Droid X2, there really is not much point in buying one.

Not a bad phone, but not an outstanding one either

from SlashGear (over 3 years ago)

The original DROID X shifted the Android game forward; we even suggested that, with Android 2.2 in place, it could be the Google phone to beat. Unfortunately it seems Motorola has let that kudos go to its head in designing the DROID X2. The higher-resolution display is nice, and the dual-core processor... More

Outshines its big brother

from Complex (over 3 years ago)

The Droid X2 is a minor upgrade to the original product. Dual-core processing, HDMI mirroring, and a sharper display are great additions to the Droid X franchise. Plus the improved MOTORLBUR UI and dope camera make it the better of the two. But while outperforming the forerunner, its uninspired design... More

A slim phone with good battery life and extremely good build quality

from Engadget (over 3 years ago)

The $200 Droid X2 is definitely a worthy successor to the Droid X name. The design still cuts a striking profile and of course the new dual-core processor won't leave you wanting. However, the lack of LTE connectivity just might. Sure, Verizon hasn't exactly managed to get us locked in coast-to-coast... More

A weak update to the original

from Business Insider (over 3 years ago)

If you don't mind a thick or heavy phone, the DROID X2 is a solid bet. It's fast, powerful, and a pretty good deal at $199.99 with a two-year contract. Current DROID X owners looking to upgrade (there probably aren't many of you) should definitely skip this round though. The improvements in speed aren't... More

Lovely design and quality, fast, strong reception and good voice

from Mobile Tech Review (over 3 years ago)

Motorola has smartly updated the original Droid X, one of our favorite 2010 phones, in just the right ways. They’ve left the excellent industrial design and quality materials while improving display resolution and quality, CPU performance (nice dual core punch) and adding HDMI. The Droid X2 by... More

A power-user’s handset

from Phandroid (over 3 years ago)

The Motorola Droid X2 is a superbly crafted handset that takes all that was good with the original and spruces it up in all the right areas. You can’t go wrong with the X2 for gaming, media, and other tasks that require some pretty powerful specs. Simply put, this is a power-user’s handset,... More

The most powerful Droid yet

from IntoMobile (over 3 years ago)

It all depends on what you’re looking for. The Motorola Droid X2 is a solid upgrade from the original that’s sure to impress but its lack of LTE support may send some people towards the Revolution, Charge, or Thunderbolt. Verizon doesn’t currently offer a dual-core LTE device so you... More

Big, beautiful, and powerful, but it's missing the high-speed network access

from PC Magazine (over 3 years ago)

Occasional stutters aside, the Motorola Droid X2 is an attractive, powerful phone. The problem is, with Verizon's speedy 4G network spreading like wildfire (the carrier announced 16 new cities this week alone) it's hard to recommend a top-of-the-line device that's stuck in the Internet slow lane. For... More

It might get better after some software updates, but it's not very pleasing with where it stands today

from MobileBurn (over 3 years ago)

Verizon's Motorola DROID X2 has all the specs required for being a stellar Android smartphone. Its 4.3-inch qHD display, 8 megapixel camera, and dual-core 1GHz processor are all very impressive. On paper. The reality of the situation, though, is far less exciting. Add to that last year's design, minus... More

It’s basically unchanged from its predecessor

from PhoneArena (over 3 years ago)

We really want to like the Motorola DROID X2, much like how we accepted its predecessor with open arms, but when it doesn’t particularly set any new bars, it’s really difficult to side with it over the other competition. Sure it has that wonderful dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor under... More
