Motorola is a renowned company that has made a name for itself in the smartphone arena.
However, with the changing times, the company lost its sheen in the mobile industry, due to excessive competition in the market. More companies, both international and domestic have gained entry into the smartphone arena with their latest and updated smartphones. Motorola lagged behind in the smartphone race for a moment. Not to be mistaken, Motorola offered superb products, both in design and performance, but lacked that extra mojo to allure the consumers.
However, Motorola did not give up and came back with a bang, with not one, but two handsets back to back. The Droid series from Motorola released its Droid X and Droid X2 smartphones, to provide the potential buyers with two of the company’s best and latest Android options. The Droid X boasts of a multitude of features; whereas, the Droid X2 comes equipped with enhanced features to that of its predecessors.
Let us pit the two smartphones against each other, to determine a better smartphone in terms of features, interface and performance.
Features and Interface
One major reason to choose the Droid X2 over the Droid X is the availability of the Android version 2.3 Gingerbread, on the Droid X2 smartphone. The Droid X is expected to receive an upgrade very soon. The Droid X2 is powered with Nvidia’s Tegra 2 AP20H chipset allows the handsets to move about the platform with ease. However, the 1GHz OMAP processor powering the Droid X smartphone also moves relatively easy on the platform. The difference between the two operating systems makes the Droid X2 a more desirable device. The Droid X runs on the Android 2.1 operating system, providing the Droid X2 an upper edge in terms of interface and functionality.
In terms of performance, both the handsets offer decent all round performance with respect to call quality. The noise cancelling microphone on the Droid X offers crystal clear sound to the potential user. Both the smartphones come equipped with an active noise cancelling feature, which enables the user with the ability to manage hearing voices, when listening to speakerphone.
Motorola is renowned for manufacturing handsets equipped with an amazing reception feature. The handsets did not display any drop in calls or major instability in signal strength.
Both the handsets offered a solid day of usage, while being set to automatic brightness. Both the smartphones come equipped with 1540 mAh battery unit, which offers a decent battery life, unless being used heavily by the potential user.
