The Droid X2 arrives as the first dual-core device in the Verizon lineup that already includes 4G devices like the Thunderbolt and the Charge. While it isn’t a 4G device, the Droid X2 is a notable upgrade over the original. Boasting a dual-core 1 GHz processor and 768MB of RAM, we can count this device as pretty future proof. It packs an 8MP camera capable of 720p video capture, and houses a decent-sized 1500 mAh battery for all-day performance. The qHD display up front sits at a 960×540 for noticeably sharper text and very pixel density. It’s one of the most important and most noticable features of the phone.
The lack of a 4G radio within the device may be a major drawback for some people set on upgrading from 3G speeds, and is definitely a point to consider when purchasing a future-proof device. Though the X2 is a noticeable improvement over the original, it may not be worth the upgrade if you’re already used to 3G. Still not convinced? Check out our first impressions video below:
