Motorola DROID X goes through benchmark tests
The Motorola DROID X was put side by side with its Android brothers the HTC EVO 4G and the Nexus One, for a series of benchmark tests. The testing was a little uneven because the N-One was running Android 2.2 with the JIT compiler that really gives the handset a major league speed bump. For example, while the DROID X had a respectable MFLOPS score over 8, the Nexus One scored over 34. For those who need to know, the EVO 4G scored a 5. In the Quadrant test, 1304 was the score for the Nexus One while the DROID X scored 1131 and the EVO 4G once again brought up the rear at 419. The video below also shows how buttery smooth video plays on the DROID X at a rate of 60 fps, matching the rate of the N-One. The EVO 4G as you know, is stuck right now at 30 fps. When you see how well the upcoming Motorola handset plays video, you might find a little puddle under your chin.

you mean closed off and totally censored? yeah, I'm pretty sure one of the main reasons people get Android phones is because its an OPEN SOURCE HANDSET not some sheltered apple crap

You mean only being able to sync your iphone from one computer and having to connect it just to upgrade the software? Big name games? You mean the ones where we can play super nintendo, gameboy, game boy advance, nintendo, sega geneisis games for free while you have to pay for your games? Oh wow you got final fantasy...uhh yes I've been playing final fantasy 1 and 2 for free on my droid. And oh we are also getting final fantasy 7 soon too

U can view the app store, control what u want to sync, i have my phone n 2 touches synced to the same computer pick and choice what apps to what device I am probably getting the X but keeping iphone for games the iphone scrolls the screen and has a better user interface than the droid phones

Haha you make it seem really bad when actually its the total opposite. When he meant an App store, he most likely meant quality apps on the market. Apple definitely dominates this areas as Android's selection is very bad. The variety is horrible and the games, which many people download most, are mediocre at best. I don't want to play board games or crosswords all the time. I like the 3D gaming on the iPhone. Final Fantasy 7? You mean for the iPhone right? Because what phone will actually be able to process a game like that on there? Hawk is definitely right when it comes to big names for the App Store for Apple. All the good games are going to iPhone while nothing good is coming out for Android. There are just too many phones with different specs to support these things. The only option I see of Final Fantasy (the 3d ones, not the 2d) coming to Android is if they make possibly Android 3.0 for only high end phones that can support things like that.

the next android is called 2.3 gingerbread and that won't be out till late this year. i think lots has come out from the android market recently. and i don't play games so maybe that's why i don't care either. ha ha.

There will be a GSM version. Maybe in some months

You will never see anything named "Droid" go to another company in the U.S. Verizon, Motorola and HTC have come to an agreement with Lucas Films. So maybe there will be a Motorola..."something" that runs on Android for T-Mobile or AT&T but it will NEVER be coined as a "Droid".

You gotta be tight with Motorola to get this phone. T-mobile can't hang.

I doubt droid x will be gsm. Verizon is hyping it up to be their own exclusive phone. I can see the Droid 2 being gsm, as the Milestone 2.

HTC needs to fix whatever problem there is with the EVO. Looking at this video and seeing just how bad it is against the other phone is pissing me off. This so called CAP that they have should be explained to all the people that spent money thinking there were buying the best phone out there only to see the DROID X destroy it, and without Froyo 2.2!

HTC has been disappointing me lately, I was a die-hard fan (Had the Touch pro, touch pro 2, and imagio) until I got my Motorola Droid Nov 7th last year and I NEVER looked back. After using the Moto Droid for all this time the Eris and Incredible look and feel like toys to me now... Haven't had a chance to touch an Evo yet though.

its bad because it doesn't have dedicated graphics. i got the evo too but i'm taking it back for the droid x. destroys the evo on more then just benchmarking, the video recording is a million times better too.

I will flat out say the Droid X is everything I could ever ask for in a cell phone. Even after having the iPhone 3G, I can safely say I am much more happy with android. Droid X is sturdy, high quaility, high end, and best of all....from the best phone provider there is. I have this phone on preorder and I cannot wait.

i agree. verizon has had some really good phones as of late, but nothing clean like the iphone. i didn't get the droid because i don't like the qwert and, and eris was too weak. i returned the incredible because i hated sense ui and the pointless optical pad, but it was an awesome phone. i considered going to sprint for a second just for the evo, but the idea of paying 10 bucks a month to build a service i can't use for 6 six months dissuaded me. along came droid x and now (hoping it that it doesn't drop my signal since i'm left handed, oh wait...) i can be a less unhappy verizon customer.

So with the iPhone you would be getting the same service(unlimited calling-to any mobile phone-450 min landlines, messages-text,pic,video, navigation, and web- 3G and 4G when available and uuuuunlimited) for less than $80 a month? Just saying, the price a month for the Evo, with Sprint it just works- for me.

left handed people are either really smart or really weird. i like sense ui and i wish it was on my droid. how about you try sticking to 1 carrier for 2 years.
