Update coming to the Motorola DROID X2 brings plenty of fixes and hopefully Android 2.3.4
Judging from some of the bug fixes that are heading to the Motorola DROID X2, users of the device must be working on their last nerve. For example, according to Verizon's support page for the phone, the update will now allow the keyboard to remain visible during text entry. When using the keyboard the device will no longer freeze-up or reset. The charging indicator will now only light up when the device is...charging and the camera can now be used after unlocking the phone.

These are just some of the corrections that are coming with the update. But even that small sample tells us that Motorola DROID X users have to be among the most frustrated smartphone users. With the update, the magic smoke live wallpaper will now work and audio is improved on streaming video playback. Video quality itself is also improved during playback and when the device is in the desktop cradle, home key functions will work. Input characters will be displayed correctly during text entry. It makes you wonder how DROID X2 owners could use the device at all.

We've come this far, might as well continue! With the update, YouTube videos won't lock or freeze, songs will not skip when playing MP3's throught he music app and you can now purchase Let's Play Golf without receiving an error message. Hopefully, the update will also bring Android 2.3.4 to the model. The complete list of fixes can be found at the sourcelink. And for you Motorola DROID X2 owners out there, you can let us know if the update takes care of all of your bugs by dropping a comment in the box below after you receive your update.

This is the most unstable phone I have ever used. I cannot believe a company would put out crap like Moto did with GB. The phone reboots twice a day, frequently needs a battery pull. It makes even the BB Storm look good. I'm never buying a Moto phone again after using this POS phone.

Same could be said with the original Droid X. When it was released with 2.1 it worked great. But after 2.2 it became a laggy buggy piece of crap. 2.3 helped a little but then it started rebooting itself twice a day and really went down hill again.

Wait what in the hell are you guys going on about? My droid X runs fine had an update possibly last week or something like that. My phone doesn't reset itself or anything like that. I do a battery pull every 100 hours or so to refresh the phones state as prescribed. Freezing, nope haven't had that happen since getting the fix to GB update so many moons ago, but this update is for the X2 not the X. So why in the world is PA talking about the X owners? You guys confused about your phones? These phones are slightly different software wise, get your stuff straight PA. I own a bloody Droid X and i am looking for the aforementioned issues, must be for the X2 only because my camera has always worked after unlocking the phone, live wallpapers always worked, never had issues with streaming video playback.

Alan F., what the f**k was this bulls**t? You just pulled down your verbal pants and let loose a torrent of brown all over the X2. Completely unprofessional. Yes, the keyboard has been wonky on Motorola Gingerbread phones. Problem was fixed until the update was released by simply using a third party keyboard. The original X got the same update too a week or two ago. But seriously. I've never seen you guys so blatantly attack a phone for having a bug fix update. What the hell is wrong with you today?

I had a Droid x2 and it had SO many horrible issues that I dropped verizon and got the epic touch with sprint and have never been happier. The x2 would restart several times daily, apps would close,and take you back to the home screen often, in addition to all of the bugs they listed. Horrible.

Oh and I forgot to mention that I had the phone replaced 3 times and they all had the same issues.

You folks should try Windows 7.5 phones. The new Nokia Ace and the new HTC Titan are going to be amazing.

I'll stand behind what i think. The Droid X2 is the WORSE phone Motorola ever built. I had it for 2 weeks and hated it. Returned it went back to the Droid X. Used that til i got the Bionic.

This is a dumb comment as the X2 is basically the same as the X aside from a little beefed up hardware. The software is where the issues came in as they do not have compatible versions of GB. How on earth that translates into worst phone Motorola ever built is beyond me. I wonder why people try to spew their experience as if it's truth, the problem was software since an update fixes it...the crap I have to sift through on this site is amazing.
