The Motorola Droid X has made quite an impression since its release.
The handset managed to gather high recognition among the masses, because of its strong presence in the Android world. It would not be wrong to suggest that the handset offered the masses with larger than life status. However, the situation has changed significantly over the past couple of months. The changing times calls for a worthy successor of the Motorola Droid X smartphone. Whether the Motorola Droid X2, would be a worthy successor or not, would be discussed today.
Smartphone manufacturers have adopted the strategy of recycling their successful handset designs and providing the masses with new releases. Going on similar lines, the Motorola Droid X2 comes with certain enhancements made to its processor, secluding it from the pack. Coming with a two-year contract price of $199.99, the smartphone is fit to be included into the non 4G LTE phone segment. However, whether the handset has what it takes, to become a worthy successor of its famous Motorola Droid X smartphone. Let us compare the two handsets in terms of their interface to determine the enhancements made to the Motorola Droid X2, under the hood.
Comparison of Interface
The original Droid X was the first to come equipped with a 4.3-inch display. However, the Droid X2 claims fame with its dual core processor. The Droid X2 comes equipped with a dual core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, running at a speed of 1GHz. The dual core processor of the Droid X2 smartphone offers a quicker speed and responsiveness to the user. Despite making the use of static wallpapers, the smartphone runs effortlessly. However, when intensive live graphic wallpapers were put to use in the smartphone, delays and lags were experienced. However, the smartphone offers smooth running of basic operations. Expectations were high with the enhancements made to the processor of a Droid X2 smartphone. However, in real time usage, the X2 performs at a similar pace to that of the Droid X smartphone.
The Droid X smartphone has been equipped with the Android version 2.3 Gingerbread, for quite a while now. However, the Motorola Droid X2 runs on Android version 2.2.2 Froyo operating system and personalized light version of MOTOBLUR running alongside it. The core is similar to its predecessor. However, the difference lies with the Droid X2 being equipped with helicopter view and quick home screen panel being removed from the handset. The Droid X enabled the user with rearranging the home screen layout or to gain access to the one he or she likes.
With respect to personalization, the smartphone offers the users with Motorola widgets and standard Android features. In terms of presentation, the MOTOBLUR appears boxy, similar to that of the Droid X smartphone. When the user makes use of the heavy Motorola widgets, the MOTOBLUR becomes even boxier. Let us hope some users would appreciate the unique appearance of the interface of the Motorola Droid X2 smartphone. Regardless, the handset lacks that extra punch to make the Droid X2 a better choice over other smartphones.
