Connectivity and Call Quality
This section may seem questionable to folks as the connectivity to a network is more dependent on the carrier than on the phone. However, as the Motorola Droid X is exclusive to Verizon, one must consider the network as part of the phone, you can't have the phone without the network... well, you can, but it would effectively be a paperweight. In the case of the Droid X, being a part of Verizon's network is a huge positive.
Verizon has one of the best, if not the most reliable connections in the United States. No matter where you go, you'll most likely have a connection. This allows you to use the Droid X almost anywhere. In addition, Verizon allows you to make your smartphone a mobile hotspot. Though the fee is much higher, for company employees, this can be a huge saving grace if your coworkers can't find a network connection.
When using the Droid X, there was never any dropped calls or network outages. Sites loaded up fast with no problems, very rarely was there network lag causing web pages to load slowly. When sharing the network using the Droid X as a mobile hotspot, there was some slight delay but overall it was an enjoyable experience for friends and coworkers alike. The cost for this service however is expensive, so keep that in mind if having a mobile hotspot readily available is an important aspect you need on your smartphone.
The call quality was top notch, incoming calls were loud and clear and folks on the other side of the line were able to hear me fine. There was never any choppiness on either end, and as mentioned, never any dropped calls. The small hump on the back of the phone actually lifts the phone up a bit, so if the phone is lying on a table and the speakerphone is turned on, it's actually very clear. The speaker portion is lifted up due to the hump from the camera. Compared to the Samsung Captivate and the Samsung Vibrant, the Motorola Droid X actually had a much clearer and louder speakerphone.
