Sprint’s HTC Evo 4G and Verizon’s Motorola Droid X are two of this summer’s hottest Google Android handsets. I’m going to have them face off in a bloody, no-holds-barred competition (it’s like WWE Summer Slam…but with phones). I’ll be comparing their respective features throughout the next week. Even after a few hours with the Droid X, I see some areas where it beats out the Evo 4G. I also see some areas where the Evo 4G leaves it in the dust. Before I start a more detailed comparison, let’s have a modelling contest between these two fine phones.
After you check out the photos, let me know which phone you think is better looking.
As you can see, the Droid X is longer and slimmer than the Evo 4G. No matter what, some people will claim that both of these phones are too big. I think those people are stupid.
Both phones have a soft rubberized back.
Some users will prefer the capacitive buttons of the Evo 4G while others will prefer the mechanical buttons of the Droid X. I prefer the feel of the capacitive buttons, but there are times when I accidentally hit them (especially when using the Evo 4G in landscape mode). Accidental button presses will not happen with mechanical buttons.
My dream phone would have features of the Droid X and Evo 4G. I tried to get them to reproduce to no avail.
