I'm due for an upgrade, but I just can't justify buying this without LTE. The promise of a 2GHZ monster by the end of the year and the rumblings of an LTE iPhone are a little too enticing. Unfortunately, iPhones seem to be the only future proof phones.

Thats the real rating for this phone. 9.5 not 10, but 9.5, I think that is there were a front-facing camera, the rating would be 10

I would rate the DROIDX a 10 if motorola would have put SENSE UI on it...the specs on this phone are out of this world...I know that HTC pattens sense ui,but,picturing it would look amazing

ok...Phone arena, stop with the REALLY crappy video reviews, stop reading the piece of paper you got in front of you, throw it in the trash and just talk about the phone, stop with your rehearsed ben stein sounding voice, I love your site, I go to it every day but I hate your video reviews.

Oh don't forget they gave the galaxy s less than a 9.0. Yet it has the best graphics of the 3, better screen and better cpu. Wow phonearena stop with this, just because a screen is big doesn't make it a winner.

the Galaxy screen is worse in sunlight and an absolute battery hog, the processor is bogged down by a UI overskin that they had no idea how to integrate probably with their processing scheme. also the UI itself isn't worth the slow down, its just annoying. also the camera is mediocre. AKA Droid X is better. not to say the Galaxy is shitty its just not as good

FALSE. SAMOLED is far better than Droid X screen. It uses less battery power (thats one of the main points in using AMOLED displays). The processor is MUCH MUCH better (in GLBench SGS gets 1400 frames and Droid X only 800... thats almost twice) The UI is changeable and it's smoother on SGS, 'coz it has much better hardware. The camera is better since it records HD with 30fps, not only with 24. (24 = lag). Not to mention Bluetooth 3.0 and secondary camera.

And they give Samsung Galaxy S 8.5/10. SGS is better than both EVO and Droid X with its SAMOLED display, HD @ 30 fps, PowerVR SGX 540 GPU, Bluetooth 3.0 etc. It should be something like this: iPhone 4 - 9.5/10 Samsung Galaxy S - 9.4/10 Droid X - 9.1/10 EVO - 9/10

The Droid X mb810 is junk. The touchscreen does not work. The phone rings. I touch and slide and it will not answer. I miss calls constantly. To make a call back I touch "recent" calls and touch A. The Droid X calls B or C or even D, far down the screen. When trying to search the internet, I touch the globe icon. Nothing. Dead. This phone is JUNK! I called Motorola and they suggest removing the battery every (EVERY!) time it happens or do a hard reset (and losing all data). JUNK JUNK JUNK. Avoid this phone.
