Motorola Droid X2 (Verizon Wireless)

The Good The Motorola Droid X2 features a qHD display and a dual-core processor for faster performance. The Android smartphone offers good call quality and battery life.

The Bad The Droid X2 lacks 4G support and a front-facing camera. The smartphone is a bit bulky and Motorola's custom UI won't please everyone.

The Bottom Line The lack of 4G will be a turnoff for some, but the Motorola Droid X2's fast performance and good battery life make it one of Verizon's most solid Android phones.

Motorola Droid X2 (Verizon Wireless)

The Motorola Droid X was one of Verizon's top Android phones last year, but like the HTC Droid Incredible, its star is starting to fade as newer, faster models enter the market. Rather than retiring it completely, Motorola and Verizon decided to build on a winning formula by introducing the Droid X2. Available online now and in stores on May 26 for $199.99 with a two-year contract, the Droid X2 improves on its predecessor with a dual-core processor and a higher-quality display. The companies stopped short of adding 4G support and other hardware improvements like a front-facing camera, which is disappointing, but does that make the Motorola Droid X2 completely undesirable? Read on for our take.

Design
If you were to put the Motorola Droid X2 and the Droid X side by side, you'd be hard-pressed to tell the difference between the two; they have nearly identical designs. The X2 is the same size and weight as the X at 5.02 inches tall by 2.58 inches wide by 0.39 inch thick and 5.47 ounces. It's a good chunk of hardware to hold and carry, and the bump on the top back adds some extra bulk. That said, we don't think the phone is any more cumbersome than the other 4.3-inch touch-screen models out there, such as the HTC ThunderBolt and the Samsung Droid Charge. Plus, we like the sturdy construction and soft-touch finish of the Droid X2.
