Summary:

I love my job. I have the two hottest Android phones sitting in front of me. The two phones are the Motorola Droid X and the HTC EVO 4G and both are nice. Let’s compare them in some key areas and see how they stack up.

Droid X, EVO 4G head to head

I love my job. I have the two hottest Android phones sitting in front of me. At least they are the hottest phones for a few weeks until the next great Android phone comes along. The two phones are the Motorola Droid X and the HTC EVO 4G; in addition to being crammed with features both phones have 4.3-inch screens that look great. I do believe this size screen is the sweet spot for smartphones — any bigger and the phone would be too big to carry around, any smaller and you’d be missing out. The EVO 4G impressed me enough that I bought one of my own, and the Droid X was sent to me by Verizon to test. Let’s put these two superphones head to head in a few categories and see how they stack up.

I should set the stage for this competition by qualifying my situation. I have been using the EVO 4G for almost two months. I liked the phone enough that I bought one with my hard-earned cash. I have stated that there is nothing I don’t like about the EVO, and while some my find that biased in this comparison it is what it is. I intend to approach this comparison from a user’s standpoint. I will not get into the minutia of the technical details, I will instead focus on the areas that affect usability and usefulness.

Form factor

The size and form of a smartphone depends in large part on the size of the display. These two phones have the same screen, but the size is quite different. This is due to the fact that the screen size is measured diagonally but each screen has a different width and length. The Droid X screen is slightly taller and narrower in portrait orientation than the EVO 4G.

The Droid X is slightly narrower as a result, and a bit taller. This makes the Droid X fit better in the hand and feel good. It is also a little lighter than the EVO 4G and that helps too. The EVO is also a tiny bit thicker than the Droid X overall, discounting the camera hump on the Droid. The smooth plastic of the Droid X doesn’t feel as solid as the EVO, but it’s easy to handle. Winner in form factor: Droid X.

Display

As stated, the two phones have similar screens that vary slightly in dimensions. The Droid X is thus a slightly more wide angle screen (in landscape) than the EVO 4G. This makes viewing video nicer than on the EVO. The Droid X screen seems slightly brighter than that on the EVO, although they are very close.

The narrower screen on the Droid X does suffer in one area compared to the EVO — web browsing. The Android browser opens web pages with an overview of the whole web page compressed to fit the entire screen. On the EVO 4G when you open a busy web page, the overview looks good and text is crisp even though very tiny. On the Droid X the text is not quite as crisp in the overview of the same page. It’s not bad, it’s just not quite as crisp on the Droid X. I attribute this to the narrower screen and the “fit to screen width” technology used in the browsers. Winner in display: Tie.

Phone functions

These are both phones first and foremost and while it’s easy to get caught up in the sophisticated functions of them they must be good at making phone calls. Both phones use a customized form of the Android dialer, each with its own strengths and weaknesses. The EVO 4G uses smart dialing where you start tapping in either a phone number or a name and it gives a list of contacts in a window above the dial pad, narrowing the results with each additional tap. It can usually find the right contact with three taps which is useful. If you are simply entering in a phone number it figures that out and makes the returned contact list disappear.

The Droid X uses a tabbed interface in the dialer which is also useful. One tab has all of the contacts in the Favorites list, another a list of recent calls, one a full contact list and the last a full screen dial pad. This system works well, too, it’s a matter of which phone’s method you prefer.

Audio quality on the Droid X is a bit better than that on the EVO 4G, which is not bad. That’s likely due to the two noise canceling microphones on the Droid X that does a good job reducing background noise.

The speakerphone function on the EVO 4G is better than that on the Droid X. The speaker plays much louder on the EVO 4G and is a better quality for audio. When you hang up a call on the EVO 4G, it pops up a dialog box (part of the Sense interface) that asks if you want to add the contact if the call was from an unknown number. Winner in phone functions: Tie.

User interface

The user experience on a smartphone is a combination of the hardware and the user interface (UI) software. The UI plays a big role in establishing how functional a phone can be, along with how enjoyable it is to use every day. Both of these phones ship with Android 2.1, but each handset maker has put its own “special sauce” on top of that to refine the experience.

Motorola has included its new version of the Motoblur interface, and it is greatly improved. The original Motoblur interface was very much “in your face”, with social network updates flying out at you all the time and providing a constant distraction. This version on the Droid X is simply a set of widgets that can be used or not as desired, and they are greatly toned down in both appearance and intrusiveness.

There are system functions like date and time widgets, contact functions that allow you to put any contact on any of the seven home screens and other utilities. Any widget can be moved around at will or deleted if not needed. Motorola has a popup strip at the bottom of the home screen that appears when you swipe left or right to move between the different home screens. This is innovative, but I find it less than useful since it covers up the ability to hit the phone button or the launcher button.

HTC Sense also has seven home screens, but instead of the popup navigation strip you simply hit the Home button twice and get a full screen thumbnail preview of all seven home screens. You simply tap on the one you want and you go there. This is a more efficient way to move around as you can see what’s on each screen before you go there.

Speaking of the Home button, Motorola made the terrible decision to make the Home button the second button from the left, instead of the left-most one. The Home button is hit often in the operation of an Android phone, and it makes no sense to put it anywhere but in the first (left-most) position. I repeatedly hit the Menu button when I want the Home Button on the Droid X, as that is the first button. Unfortunately that often has undesirable results.

The EVO 4G has the same four buttons beneath the screen as the Droid X, which is standard for Android. The EVO has them in the expected order, and that’s a big advantage. The Droid X has real buttons, while those on the EVO are touch sensitive. The more I use the Droid X, the better I like the EVO button as touching them requires the same pressure as touching controls on the screen. I am constantly hitting the Droid X physical buttons too lightly to trigger them, so I have to hit them twice a lot.

These are both Android phones so each handles apps in a similar fashion. Installing apps is the same on both the EVO and the Droid X, and the standard Android launcher is just a tap away on the home screen. I don’t like how the Droid X handles newly installed apps — these appear at the bottom of the launcher screen and stay there until the phone is rebooted. Every Android phone I have used, including the EVO, keeps this list of apps in alphabetical order all the time. I don’t know why Motorola handles installed apps this way.

While the Droid X interface is good, I find HTC Sense on the EVO to be much better. The HTC widgets are better designed, and extend the functionality of the interface a great deal while retaining a high level of customization. HTC Sense looks more polished than the interface on the Droid X. There are those who do not like the Sense interface, so the Droid X may be preferable as it is more like the standard Android interface. Winner in user interface: EVO 4G.

Camera

Both phones have 8 MP cameras that shoot still photos and 720p video. Both have auto-focus and LED flash for low light situations. The Droid X video recording and still photo capture is better than that on the EVO 4G. The EVO is not bad in this area, but the Droid X is better.

The Droid X has a special panoramic landscape mode that is quite good. It assists you through the entire process of capturing the landscape, and then stitches the photos comprising the panorama automatically. It is the easiest method I’ve ever seen on any phone. Kevin was impressed with it, too. Winner in camera: Droid X.

Video calling

This will be an easy area to declare the winner, as the EVO 4G has a front-facing camera for video chatting and the Droid X does not. The EVO can make video calls with either the Qik app or the Fring app. Calls can be placed using Wi-Fi connectivity, and also over 3G. Fring calls can be made with other Fring users on any platform (including the iPhone 4), and also to Skype users. This makes for a very large audience that can be called with video on the EVO. Winner in video calling: EVO 4G.

Data connectivity

Both Sprint and Verizon have 3G networks using EVDO, so 3G connectivity is very similar on both phones. Both networks are readily available throughout the U.S., and data speeds are comparable.

The EVO 4G can also tap the Sprint 4G network as its name implies, and while it is not as widespread as the 3G networks it is in many metropolitan areas. The 4G connection on the EVO 4G is outstanding, and using the EVO while connected to the 4G network is great. Winner in data connectivity: EVO 4G.

Mobile hotspot

Both phones have a mobile hotspot capability, that can share 3G connections with other devices over the phone’s Wi-Fi. Once configured the hotspot function can be turned on with a single click, and the 3G connection shared in seconds.

The EVO 4G can also share the 4G connection if available, and this is a clear advantage over the Droid X. The EVO can share either the 3G or 4G connection with up to 8 devices, while the Droid X can share with up to 5. The Sprint mobile hotspot on the EVO costs $29.99 monthly, while the Verizon service on the Droid X is $20. The EVO plan costs more but is unlimited, while the Droid x plan has a 2 GB data cap. Overage fees on Verizon are substantial, so Droid X hotspot users need to be watching data consumption regularly. Winner in mobile hotspot: EVO 4G.

Battery life

Both of these phones have decent battery life, and can easily last all day on a charge. I previously detailed the simple steps I use on every Android phone to conserve battery without compromising on functionality, and I have done that on both the EVO 4G and the Droid X. The battery life is very similar as a result.

I have noticed that the Droid X has a service running in the background called “Battery Manager”. I don’t know what this service does but I suspect it keeps runaway apps from using too much of the battery. Winner in battery life: Tie.

Conclusion

Having compared the Droid X and EVO 4G in nine major categories, let’s tally them up:

  1. Form factor: Droid X
  2. Display: Tie
  3. Phone functions: Tie
  4. User interface: EVO 4G
  5. Camera: Droid X
  6. Video calling: EVO 4G
  7. Data connectivity: EVO 4G
  8. Mobile Hotspot: EVO 4G
  9. Battery Life: Tie

EVO 4G: 4; Droid X: 2; Tie: 3

This comparison is my take on using the two phones. The categories are the ones I find most important on a smartphone; yours may vary based on your needs. While the EVO 4G gets the nod in this comparison, I find the Droid X to be a very capable smartphone. If I was on the Verizon network, or looking to get on it, I would pick up a Droid X in a heartbeat. It is easily the best phone on the Verizon network, or it will be when available July 15.

If one of these categories is very important to you, then the phone getting a clear win in that category is a strong contender for your money. If the carrier is the important factor in your situation, then go with the phone on your carrier of choice. Either of these phones is a good investment, and will serve you well.

    2. I’m also a happy iPhone 4 user, but why troll?

      I like checking in on the Android side because I like tech and I think they’re also great phones. I think the strong Android competition is what drove Apple to make one of the more dramatic updates on recent years. I’m sure the opposite applies – Android will be seeing better quality cameras And higher pixel density displays sooner than they would on their own because Apple is pushing those metrics.

      Enjoy your toys people!

    Share
    1. Which one? there are far too many android handsets, and they are all pratically the same, minus a better camera on one, a better screen on the other, a thinner android here, a fatter android here. Which one is actually king? Because in that case about 10% of each one would make a king phone.

      Unless you mean the operating system when you refer to android. in that case, which version? 1.1, 1.6, 2.0, 2.1, 2.2, or the upcoming gingerbread (no version number yet)

      Yeah, you dont know either. no one does. and this is why android still fails to beat anything other than itself.

    2. Dean, did you see the video in this post? http://www.sprintdroids.com/forum/sprint-android-news/218-htc-evo-4g-very-scratch-resistant.html

      It seems to me that the EVO 4G is extremely scratch resistant too. Like James, I carry mine in my pocket and have a screen in excellent condition still too. I think the gorilla glass may be a bit more hype than anything. I have seen the photos online of dropped iPhone 4s that have cracked so nothing really seems to prevent breakage on large screen display devices.

  7. Great review but after using Sprint and their current plan, I can’t go back to Verizon. Too expensive for the same capability as Sprint. I too am looking forward to an EVO 4g vs Epic 4g review. Love the EVO but very interested in the Epic too. The Droid X looks like an outstanding phone and if I was on Verizon it would be a no-brainer.
    I also agree that the iPhone is a great phone and I am Apple down the line for everything else but the network the phone is attached to kills it for me.

    Share
  8. In many other reviews, where the phones are not adjusted for battery life, Droid X usage time outlasts the Evo; point Droid X. Given this, both the Droid X and the Evo ultimately tie. Both are excellent phones, but with some differences. And, absolutely, depending on what a given person is looking for in a phone, or in a netword, a particular phone should be chosen with those needs in mind. Both the Droid X and the Evo, nevertheless, are essentially at a dead heat at the finish line.

    1. EVO 4G is much better than Droid anything.

      EVO 4G has 4G network, DroidX DOES NOT
      Sprint 4G covering more than 50 million now and 120 million or more by year end. Droid/VZ has ZEROOOOOOOOO 4G and won’t have a 4G phone untill June 2011, that is if VZ prediction is right.

      EVO 4G has video chat, DroidX DOES NOT.
      Video chat is the most important new function or feature and DroidX DOESN’T HAVE IT.

      EVO 4G 8 devise hotspot, DroidX only 5

      EVO 4G Sprint saves you around $1500 per year on similar plans to VZ/ATT

      EVO 4G wins hands down. Give credit where it’s due, EVO 4G wins. Imagine if Sprint EVO didn’t have video chat and VZ/Droid did, everyone would be screaming ‘EVO is not even in the compititon’

  9. @The Four – Stop trying to reassure yourself that your iphone 4 can stand up to these phones. This is a DroidX/Evo4G review, the iphone 4 isn’t even mentioned, so get back in the apple line and make sure you “avoid holding it that way”.

    @James Kendrick – Pretty good review, but I’d argue that your “Data Connectivity” and “Mobile Hotspot” sections are more of a Spring vs Verizon comparison than a Evo4G vs DroidX comparison. The Evo4G wins because of the network, not because of the phone. Do the numbers on phone comparison alone, and by your review, it would be Evo4G: 2, DroidX: 2, Tie: 3. Then, rethink your “Battery Life” section and realize that the DroidX’s battery is realistically twice as powerful as the Evo4G’s, agreed by pretty much every other review (i.e. http://www.pcworld.com/article/200505/stellar_battery_life_may_be_droid_xs_best_feature.html). This puts Evo4G: 1, DroidX: 3, Tie: 3.

    Share
    1. I agree with Tom Cane, except I think that would put Evo4G: 2, DroidX: 3, Tie: 2. DroidX still wins though.

      Share
      1. A 1540mAh battery is not twice as powerful as a 1500mAh battery. I have not used 4G yet but with 3G only on Evo the phone can last 2 days. Seido has a 1750mAh and a 3500mAh battery regardless. If the phones were unlockable and could work on either carrier the Evo would still win because HTC Sense is more workable than Motoblur. Regardless the carrier has to be a part of the decision because without bringing that into consideration you are not taking into account the total cost of the phone.

        Share
      2. Sry Prethought, but I’m going to have to agree with Tom Cane also… every other review that compares the Evo4G has said that out of box (which is how the vast majority of people will be using it), the DroidX lasts twice as long as the Evo4G in battery usage. I think the author of this review is conveniently vague when he says that after his tweaks (which again, most people won’t do), the battery life is “very similar”. I doubt it…

        And despite your opinion on HTC Sense being more workable than Motoblur, its still only an opinion. The DroidX isn’t even running Motoblur, it’s running Motoblur as you knew it, it’s running a very scaled down version that many people like. Many people don’t like Sense, and many people do like Ninjablur, and vice versa. I doubt you have even tried both, you’re just reiterating someone else’s opinion. That becomes void later this summer when Froyo is released anyway and wipes ninjablur out of the picture.

        Taking the carrier into account for the total cost of the phone is fine, but that’s not what the author did, he looked at the carrier’s connectivity and hotspot availability and attributed that as a feature in comparison between the phones… which makes no sense. In fact, he didn’t even mention cost of the phones. Sry, but I think you’re simply trying to reassure yourself.

        Share
      3. Just want to point out that every benchmark thus far shows DroidX with Ninjablur to be much faster than Evo4G and Incredible with HTC Sense.

        Share
      4. @Prethought – You apparently don’t understand what I’m saying. I’m saying that once HTC pushes out the 2.2 update, it will overwrite your phone’s OS. Meaning no more HTC Sense. Get it? And you’re saying the Evo is a better phone because the Droid X make’s a “Droid” noise? If anyone here has made a weak argument, you have. Are you serious? To your iphone comments – you said that the iphone has one button for navigation. Here’s a newflash, you can’t get where you want to go by just pressing one button. That one button brings you home, then from there you hit more buttons on the screen to get to where you want to go. With the droid, you have the home button, which takes you home, or you can his the menu button to go to the menu, etc. With the iphone, you can only go home, and then you have to hit more buttons from there to get to where you want to go. Also, you admitted below that the iphone4 is slower. Sry, you lose.

        Regarding the battery, you asked the question: “How is a 1540mAh battery going to provide twice the lasting power compared to a 1500mAh battery?” The answer – because of the phones. That’s what this discussion is about, isn’t it? You seem to not be realizing that its a 1540 in a Droid X vs a 1500 in an Evo 4G. The Evo 4G uses twice the power because of the phone hardware and software.

        “If Tom had said the Ti proc is more energy efficient than the Snapdragon I’d buy that but he didn’t. You need to make your arguments semi plausable.”

        Guess what, the TI isssss more energy efficient. It’s a 45nm vs your snapdragon 65nm. That means it runs cooler, it’s faster, and above anything else, it’s more energy efficient.

      Plain Android is crap having Motoblur or HTC Sense makes it less crappy. Case in point if I use RadioTime, Slacker or Pandora and get an email,text or navigation notification it honks out the notification. But when I had my Palm Pre it turned the volume down on the music and let the notification through without wrecking my ear drums. Android as an OS is pretty rough around the edges. No one uses an Android phone stock because a stock Android phone is crap. If they did they’d end up pitching it for an iPhone

      I’m trying to reassure myself of what? That at this point right now the Evo is the best phone on Sprint?
      In my opinion it is. I have the phone and I enjoy it eventhough it’s on an inferior OS that creepily targets ads to me at every turn. Next year I’ll have a new phone regardless. It’s a phone people not a religion.

      Share
      1. Plain Android is awesome when you’re talking 2.2 (Froyo), everyone who has it already agrees. Regardless, you do realize that the upcoming push to 2.2 is going to leave you without HTC Sense, and Droid X users won’t have ninjablur either. So everything you’re saying is moot. I agree Evo is the best phone for Spring. I meant you’re trying to reassure yourself that it’s better than the Droid X. It’s not.

        Share
      2. @FKKTim

        If HTC Sense was gone HTC would have launched Froyo now on their phones now. It’s not gone. Android is second class compared to iOS or webOS. Case in point your sry and Spring responses.
        OK, scrap the carrier comparison. Ergonomics alone
        the Evo wins I had the same issue with the buttons on the original Droid not to mention the annoying “Droid!” sound. If James is describing the same issue I had with the buttons on the original than I know I’m going to hate Droid X. Of course that is just my opinion and some people enjoy their phone saying “Droid!” with every notification. Of course the iPhone and Palm Pre have better navigation with just one button than either phone with 4. What happens when you have more than 6 tasks? Oh that’s right no one is going to install a 3rd party task manager because Android stock task manager is better with Froyo. Of course that’s just my opinion again some people enjoy the blackberry throwback task manager that is standard with Android.

        Battery life argument was a weak one. How is a 1540mAh battery going to provide twice the lasting power compared to a 1500mAh battery. If Tom had said the Ti proc is more energy efficient than the Snapdragon I’d buy that but he didn’t. You need to make your arguments semi plausable.

        Just wanted to point out that the iPhone 4 is slower than both and yet is a better phone than both stuck on a crappy carrier.

      3. @PRETHOUGHT – You don’t get it. When HTC pushes out the 2.2 update, it will replace your current operating system. That means no more HTC Sense. Get it? Sry to break it to you.

        How is it that you can say someone has a weak argument, and then go and say “the evo 4g is better because it doesn’t make a DROID sound.” LOL!

        Regarding your iphone4 comments – the one button does not make navigation better, it makes it take longer. Think about it, with the iphone 4, you have one button that takes you home. That’s it. Then from there, you have to hit more buttons on the screen to go where you want. With the Droid X, you have the home button, then you have the menu, search, etc. If I want to go to the menu, I hit menu. If I want to go home, I hit home. On the iphone, you go home, that’s all. And you said yourself below, the iphone is slower. Sry, you lose. BTW, mentioning the palm pre does not help your argument. Pretty much everyone agreed that phone was pitiful, and if you don’t believe me, just look at its sales.

        Regarding the battery, you asked “How is a 1540mAh battery going to provide twice the lasting power compared to a 1500mAh battery?” Answer: because they’re on different devices. The Evo 4G uses about twice the power in the same amount of time. That’s because of both hardware and software. Look at the benchmarks if you don’t believe me.

        Then you said – “If Tom had said the Ti proc is more energy efficient than the Snapdragon I’d buy that but he didn’t. You need to make your arguments semi plausable.” Hate to break it to you, but the TI processor IS more energy efficient. That’s because its a 45nm processor vs your snapdragon’s 65nm. That means the Droid X’s processor runs cooler, faster, and above anything else, much more energy efficiently. Don’t believe me? http://lmgtfy.com/?q=65nm+vs+45nm

      4. I have an Evo 4G but i’m going to have to disagree with you Prethought, you seem to be a little misinformed. The Droid X runs a 45nm processor, which is about 1.5x faster and uses half the power. This is probably one of the reasons why the battery life is so much better on the Droid X.

        I love my Evo but I might move onto my mom’s family plan on verizon and I think this Droid has put me over the edge. The Droid X is def the better phone. This is the first review I’ve seen that has said otherwise.

      5. why do people keep trying to say the iphone 4 is better? it can’t even compare to the droid X. maybe it can beat the Evo 4G, but def not the droid X. Consumer reports won’t even recommend it, they refuse, haha!!

      6. Prethought is mad because he bought his phone 3 weeks ago and now a new phone came out that’s better. Get over it. In another 3 weeks, a phone will prob come out that’s better than the Droid X. That’s how it works, don’t let it bother you.

        And I agree, this is the first review I’ve seen that has said the Evo 4G is better.

        You obviously don’t understand the point I am saying. I can run froyo right now. HTC could push froyo right now but they are not going to because they will integrate sense. If everyone just made Android phones with the stock OS what would be the differentiator?

        I was making his point for him. I wouldn’t have had a problem with his statement if he said it was the proc instead of the battery.

        Yes my life is ruined because I bought an EVO instead of the superior Droid X. I must reassure myself that I won’t be a such a social outcast that I won’t be able to find a date to this falls homecoming. I will have to make sure I keep my EVO in its holster. Oh the humility of it all having such an inferior piece of hardware. I shall erect a temple to the god of Droid X to request forgiveness for bearing witness to false gods before him. I shall invoke jihad to any non believers of the Droid X greatness.

        EVO 4G has 4G network, DroidX DOES NOT Sprint 4G covering more than 50 million and 120 million or more by year end. Droid/VZ has ZEROOOOOOOOO 4G and won’t have a 4G phone untill June 2011, that is if VZ prediction is right.

        EVO 4G has video chat, DroidX DOES NOT. Video chat is the most important new function or feature and DroidX DOESN”T HAVE IT.

        EVO 4G 8 devise hotspot, DroidX 5

        EVO 4G Sprint saves you around $1500 per year on similar plans to VZ/ATT

        EVO 4G wins hands down.

      9. @Prethought – You’re speculating now. The reasons they haven’t pushed froyo yet is because of their contract with google (who releases froyo first for a certain period of time) and because of their own network integration. That’s all. HTC has already said froyo will replace the OS and that means Sense too.

        I’m glad I’ve finally convinced you that the Droid X is the superior phone. You can be sarcastic all you want, as long as you realize that.
