Gizmodo Tears Apart Droid X
This is my first post and I just wanted to let you guys know that Gizmodo is spewing some horrendous stuff on the X. Go defend your phone. I don't own a X or even an Android phone but Ive had the pleasure of spending some time using an X and I don't think its anywhere near as bad as what these guys are saying.

Honestly I dont understand what he is talking about. "Motoblur" or whatever you wanna call the new Android skin looks good and works well. I found that it was very unobtrusive. This UI thing with the Android phones is totally overblown. Ive found that at the end of the day you can side step these mild UI tweaks and just do what you want.
I mean can somone explain to me how this UI is different than Sense or the stock Vanilla Android UI? Are they really THAT different that it would make this phone un-usable? I smell bull in this article.

That review could not be more different than every other one I've read. The freaking out over the moto-blurish thing is driving me nuts...if it is that bad remove the widgets and don't set them up to sync with anything.**************************

Why does everyone say as soon as a article in a magazine, blog or whatever says their phone is not what was expected that they " are biased to the iPhone". I understand people are going to defend their phones or whatever but I mean come on. Everyone says the same thing. Oh the put my phone down. They just Liberia iPhone. If u don't like the review don't read it move on. It is their opinion.

That review was a little ridiculous. I like how there were two photos of the phone operating and a bajillion and one of it on a street grate or a fence post or a brick next to a flower.
Reminds me of this discussion with my girlfriend last night. Watched a documentary about this guy and his kids and how the family is pretty messed up. And in the middle of the thing, it just goes to music and you see a flower, and then it pans up to the sky. I just looked at her and said, "thats what happens when you have documentary filmmaker that wants to get artistic: crap that doesn't make any sense!"
Thats how I felt about the review. Also the language was quite juvenile for a prominent website such as Giz. Haven't been there in a while, but I hope this isn't representative of their current "style".
I ordered my phone and feel none the worse after reading this "review".
Now, it just needs to get here!Nokia 3595 -> LG L1100 -> Motorola V325 -> RIM Blackberry Storm 9530 -> Motorola DroidX
